Trees in the mist
Firstly thank you al Sooooooo much for the wonderful support yesterday and through this period of change to me new John Next Door brand. The shows yesterday were so busy I hardly had time ti think trying to get more stock between shows so I didn't disappoint anyone!
I know I have said it before but I want to reiterate that none of this would be possible without those of my blog family who visit, whether you comment or not, every day It really is so special!
Roight Mushy over now nback to the crafting. I thought I would share this card today as It has a softer feel but shows what other things can be achieved with the Winter Stamps from the new range .
This card started out as an accident, it happens to all of us I know, as i accidentally smudged one of the trees. I stamped the tree from the winter trees set in the tea izink dye ink pad onto pearl acrd. I moved the card along 5am and stamped it again and repeated this once more to get three tress. I then used the mint and ocean inks and randomly stamped the leaves in the set over the trees. It was at this stage that I smudged one of the trees ( as the ink takes longer to dry on pearl card)
This gave me the smoky / misty look as seen on the trees. I repeated the process but didn't smudge the next one and I simply cut this out and mounted it in a gold circle ( using the CE pierced circles dies)
I mounted the crisp tree at one edge of the misty strip and added a border of more gold before making up the card as sown with the Happy Birthday stamped repeatedly across the bottom.
Again something different to do with the Joh Next Door range!
I have had loads of emails asking where the stamp press is available form as well as the rest of the range. There are lots of retailers who are stocking these there is a link to a couple on the sidebar.
I will be demonstrating the new John Next Door range at Inspirations in Preston Tomorrow and Friday as well as my selection form the Creative Expressions Christmas die range so pop in and see in person how to use the system and products!
