If following the blogs from post to post you should have arrived here from Narelle Hoggard but you can go in any order you like.
I have made cards from the White Christmas set which is one of the new polymer designs. These are great as you really can see where you are placing your stamp and they are cheap! This set has 13 images which are all designed to work together in creating scenes or by themselves. The greetings on some of the images are from a special hostess set available until the end of October called Good Greetings.
My first card is my favourite. It uses the trees and birds from the set. The background has been sponged and masked with torn paper, a sponge dauber and smokey slate ink. The snowflakes are created with a white gel pen.
The next one has a sort of Scottish theme with the stag and background paper from the Trim the Tree Designer Series paper stack. This would also work well for a male themed birthday or Father's day card.
The next card uses the cute little snowman, lots of clear Dazzling Details glitter glue and trimmed with a strip of the All is Calm designer washi tape.
My last project is a shaker card using the polar bear and star from the set. The shaker window is filled with snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins pack of sequins. The front piece of the card is embossed with the Lucky Stars textured impressions embossing folder.
