12 Days, Last Day...
Its the last day of the stamp giveaway remember just leave a comment telling me which is your favourite of today's cards to be i the draw! I thought you might like ti see a couple of yesterdays show samples (and a demo piece) in more detail.
The first card is made using the Partridge in a pear tree stamp set, although it looks complex this is a simple card tout together. I stared by stamping the main partridge square in jet black archival ink onto a square of coconut white foundation card in one corner. Next I stamped three of the pears and one of the partridges (these come as separate elements in the stamp set) in jet black on rich red foundation card. Next I fussy cut these out and foam mounted them on the partridge and hanging in the pear tree.
Next I added dots of white PVA pearl randomly over the whole piece to represent snow. I tend a simple strip of the scarlet ribbon and red white bakers twine down the opposite side. I tied a knot in the two and added a large silver dazzler in the centre.
The second card was done as a demo on the first show yesterday, if you want to catch up with it then you can HERE on the create and craft website (shows are available to watch on catch up for 7 days)
