Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou Meri Kirihimete

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019.  There are going to be some major changes for me and I will be able to stretch and challenge myself on my artistic journey.  I am really looking forward to be able to spend more time on my art.

For my last post before Christmas I have a Christmas card I have made for a dear friend who has had a very challenging year and I hope that next year will be a much better year for her.

I have used Becca Feeken’s Grand Arch dies along with Heartfelt Creations flowers and images.  They make a perfect combination.

Once again I wish you all the best for the holiday season and I hope that you get some crafty time for yourself.

Happy Crafting

Die cut another 3 frames from white cardstock.  Glue two of the centres together and adhere the previously cut holy town paper to the top.  Using the outer frame as a template adhere the holy town to the centre.  Add a frame to the card front with foam tape and repeat with another frame.

Add the third frame using foam tape to the layers.  Add a pine bough on the top left and bottom right.  Add extra pine needles previously coloured over the pine boughs and down the left side and across from the bottom right.  Stamp the angels from the HCPC-3832 O Holy Night Stamp set in Jet Black ink on Super White cardstock.  Colour with Zig Clean Colour Brush markers and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Shape and add to the top left and bottom right.

Stamp the poinsettia images from the HCPC-3822 Poinsettia and Holly Cluster Stamp set in Cactus Flower ink on Super White cardstock.  Colour with the Cactus Flower ink and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape using the coordinating mold and assemble when dry.  Add Crystal Clear glitter using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge and adhere around the angels over the pine needles.

Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou

I have had to make some last minute Christmas cards and thank goodness I had some poinsettias made and Heartfelt Creations has images ready to die cut and add to my cards.  I had some fun with mixing some products from Marianne Designs and Sue Wilson along with Heartfelt Creations papers.
