The blogger returns !

Hello everyone, well, what can i say, i am ashamed of myself for abandoning my blog for as long as i have ! LOL In my defence, i lost my account details so was unable to log in, but i have finally re-gained access to it so intend to make up for lost time. I will be updating my blog with some xmas cards i have been making, i have two to show to you today, i hope you like them.

This first card is made using Clarity stamps (as most of my cards are as i love them !), i really enjoyed making this one, i stamped and masked the reindeer and stamped the sentiment in versamark before brayering the background, i then re-stamped the sentiment using a black adirondack ink-pad and stamped it slightly down and to the left a little to give a cool 3D effect (which takes a little bit of bravery and a steady hand !). For the border, i masked a straight edge of card and stamped the snowflake and used a make-up sponge to apply some blue ink around the edges for definition. The base card has an acetate wrap around it and i really like this snowfall acetate from HunkyDory, it's fab !


My next card is also using Clarity stamps, for this card i wanted a very contemporary feel, i used silver gilding flakes on the moon, and promarkers on the fairy, on her wings i used a silver Krylon pen, the background is a 12"x12" paper from Craft Creations, i do love their backing papers and this one was such a perfect fit for the look i wanted to achieve that i had to use it ! I used the same technique on the borders as on the previous card, except i embossed the stars using silver embossing powder, which i also did for the stars in the background and for the sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my cards, there'll be more soon.

  29. If you don't sleep enough then your body produces hormones that make you hungry, and then you eat more than you should. Hormones which give a feeling of fullness are also reduced. If you take weight loss seriously, then you need to take sleep seriously and get the right amount when your body needs it.
