Christmas Cards all Year Round

I finally was able to start on the Christmas Cards All Year Round. This Month the theme was Red or Pink. I chose mainly red. I also decided to just use one stamp but create different styles with it. The first one I used creatix paints in metallic pink and I added some forever red perfect pearls to tone down the pink. The stamped image looks a little flaky but I could work with it. I cut it out with a decorative scissor and then layered it on black shimmer paper and pink between and Red shimmer. I finished it off with stickers in silver. The next one I made it sparkle in red emboss sparkle and layered in papers. The following 2 I used Perfect pearls-Forever Red, Raspberry Red, and dreamsicle. The first one is on white paper and the second on black to create a different look. I also had some red tissue and I just blotted on silver ink and embossed. The other one again is just paper layering but to tone down the bright gold stickers I used dye ink in black to sponge it on. The last one is embossed in Egyption Gold and placed on this great red shimmer paper and highlighted in stickers. Stickles is also a favourite of mine which is used on a couple of cards too. Have a great day!

  1. Very pretty! You're getting quite the head start on your Christmas cards this year! Good for you. I should do the same - but thinking about Christmas means thinking about snow, and if I have to think about snow anymore, I think I'll throw my computer through the window.
