Lilian's Lovely Christmas Tree card
Pat's first Christmas tree card
Pat's 'Groovi Plate' Christmas Tree
Good Wednesday Morning Ladies,
After experiencing another melt down by my tablet and having to reboot/reload everything I came across some of the photos that I had somehow missed on Sunday, I will always make sure that every card you make gets displayed!
Lilian's lovely, snowy covered tree card is first up today, I think the tree is the " lovely as a tree" stamp set from Stamping Up, there is an Old Oak tree, a Christmas/pine tree and a row of trees together in the set, this Christmas tree is my favourite and the reason I bought the set, Sue and I scoured the internet last year for a proper "Christmas" looking pine tree, this set had the perfect one!
Now I'm not sure how Lilian has achieved the snowy look on the tree, it looks like she may have stamped the tree in green, then placed a piece of vellum over, stamp tree again in perfect medium, then added white embossing powder and heated, the lovely "Snowflake Merry Christmas" is a Crafter's Companion Die, it is lovely, I love the font and the layout.
A perfect Winter Tree Christmas card Lilian, thank you for taking part and sorry I missed adding it on Sunday xxxx
Pat's cards up next, the first card to me looks like a 'designer' style card, very expensive looking, Pat has used the 'Woodward Clear Magic' stamp called "Forest", a trio of stamps that come with two sentiments 'Winter Wishes ' and " Seasons Greetings' and a couple of snowflakes :
I saw it yesterday for just £5.99 online.
Pat has used all three tree stamps in ascending order, stamped in clear ink and sprinkled with white embossing powder and heated, Pat used the 'Winter Wishes' sentiment, I love the part that Pat did next, using some left over bits of that lovely purple card to create 3 tree shape pieces to which Pat added some decoration, this created a matching tag to add to the side of the card with matching ribbon, this is the part that gives the card that 'designer' touch, I love this card Pat, it really stands out from the crowd, you creative genius you!! xxx
Pat's second image is the start of another card, this time using Vellum and the 'Groovi' System by Clarity Stamps.
This is the plate, it is simply called 'Christmas Tree' plate.
Pat has used this plate to emboss the image onto some white Vellum/ parchment, adding touches of blue colour pencil to the Ribbon sections of the tree, the little hints of colour add dimension to the image as well as colour. Pat has then added the sentiment beside the tree. I look forward to seeing this mounted up onto a card Pat, you have really mastered the "Groovi" system now Pat, I wonder how many of you ladies have this system too, I know Sue has and Brenda too, be good to see some more cards made with it. Thank you Pat for sending me your cards to share xxxx
If any of you have any craft purchases that they made recently, can you send me a photo please? I have one from Michele, a few more would be great too .
Have a lovely day ladies, whatever you are up to, I think we will be contacting the Shop we purchased my tablet from, as it was had "Android has stopped working" message come up twice now, it then goes on to close down and wipe contents of all files and all apps ! Even those I thought I had safely saved to SD card, its so frustrating, the Warranty expires next month, so I think we need to act now, wish me luck!
Love and hugs to all of you,
