Woo hoo! It's new launch time - Leonie is on Hochanda TV with a fab new set of Entwined dies and some lovely stamps to go with them.
The first card I wanted to show you is using the 'Entwined Christmas Tree- Frost' die. This is a beautiful design but if you've been following me for a while you'll know that I often find other ways of using things, so I've not used it as a tree at all. If you turn it upside down it looks like fancy antlers :D
To start off my card I painted a square of black cardstock with white gesso, leaving some thinner patches for interest.
Next I 'painted' part of a Claritystamp deer with a black Spectrum Aqua marker
and stamped it onto my background.
Next I cut a wavy shape in a piece of copy paper with my craft knife to use as a mask
and used a sponge and Distress Ink to add hills
There's a cute little fir tree at the bottom of the 'Christmas Cheer' stamp so I inked that up with black memento ink (I used post-it notes to mask off the rest of the stamp)
This was stamped several times over my 'landscape'
I stamped lots of snowflakes from the 'Swirls and Flakes' set around the edges of my card, using second, third and fourth generation ink.
To do the deer's antlers I cut the 'Frost' die from silver mirri card and snipped off the tree top, leaving me two lovely swirly bits. I glued them on top of the deer's head with cosmic shimmer glue and layered it onto a 7"x7" card with some papers from the Wild at Heart paper pad from Trimcraft.
For the sentiment I cut the 'Winter' die from white centura pearl and stamped 'Wishes' from a previous stamp set (Flight to Freedom) onto a circle of the same card. They're layered up onto the base card with strips of two more of the papers.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Winter Wonderland Show us your gold/silver and or an embossed background
Happy Little Stampers (Christmas) Snowflakes
My teamies have some gorgeous samples to show you too. I have links to their blogs on my sidebar --->
