Christmas Greetings | Create A Smile | Heat Embossing | Polychromos coloring

It's time again for Christmas cards inpiration. Every month on the 24th I am sharing ideas for a Christmas card. This time I have played with stamps from Create A Smile Stamps

Have you ever tried heat embossing on gold cardstock? Well, I was very much positively surprised with the good result. 


This cardstock has a  smooth surface with a shimmering look. The smooth surface makes it optimal for heat embossing techniques. Gold is not the easiest colour to photograph because of the reflections. But the white heat embossing looks really good in real life. 


The holly is coloured with Polychromos colour pencils. These also gives a good coverage on the gold cardstock. 

Have a splendid day,
Pia

Dainty Bouquet | Altenew Layered Stamps | Birthday Wishes


I was at the Creativation tradeshow in Phoenix this January and paticipated in Altenew's workshop called "Quick and Simple Cardmaking". They showed one of their new layering stamp sets called "Dainty Bouquet" and it's just gorgeous!

Here is the card we made in the workshop. Just imagine using it for wedding cards - how stunning would that be!


I was so excited about this workshop that I managed to be first in line as we had to wait outside the classroom. So I was lucky to get a spot in the front row. 


Below is a pic from the workshop which I managed to snap in between stamping. Here I have stamped to two greenish colours for the basis.  

For this card we used two mini cube ink sets. The "Floral 6" and the "Soft Pastel 6" sets.
The cardbase is Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. 


This class was so much fun and Jennifer Rzasa did a great job teaching us. 

Fingers crossed I will be able to go to Creativation in 2020.

Happy Birthday | Wild Thing | Clearly Besotted Stamps | Polychromos Colouring

A simple kids birthday card with quick colouring. 

I didn't put too much effort into the colouring of the giraffe image as I wanted it to be fast to create. The card is very simple as the cardfront with the image is matted on designpaper.


The image is coloured with Polychromos and I have used these colours:



189 + 124
187 + 280 + 283




That's all from me today, 
Pia

Pink Glitter Flower | Clustered Leaves Outline Die | Scrapbook Adhesives 3L | Simon Says Stamp

Who doesn't love glitter! 

I have tried out the double adhesive sheets by Scrapbook Adhesives and these works wonders with glitter. Just look at this card I have made using the adhesive and 3 colours of pink/red glitter.


I have used the negative diecuts from Simon Says Stamps new Clustered Leaves Outline die. If you didn't know you would not believe this flower is created with leaves diecuts. 

The flower petals is a combination of using the Adhesive Sheets directly on the cardbase and diecut pieces of kraft. This gives the flower texture and dimension.


When working with the petal diecuts only from the Adhesive Sheets I used my exacto knife to lift the backing. Then adhere them to the cardfront. Then again using the exacto knife to lift the second backing and pouring glitter on. 


When I work with glitter I always use a clothes roller - you know that sticky thing you use to remove pet hair from your clothes - to contain and clean up stray glitter on my work surface.

Wishing you a glittering day, 
Pia
