Santa Bauble...

Happy Friday,

Today I am starting to share some of the samples I have made using my new range of masks, stamps and media plates and I just love the colour of this card and the complex simplicity of it.

I stared by making the bauble using the bauble media plate and the Festive Scene clear stamp set.  I inked the plate with 2 shades of izink Pigment in and using the snowflakes and sonata on sleigh I used the resist technique to remove the ink from the plate giving the white pattern shown.

I cut this out using the stitch dot circle dies form Press cut and matted the circle onto silver and deep blue using more circles.  I added a spray of christmas foliage around the top and finished with a silver edged ribbon bow ( the centre diamond pearl was made for me by my friend Wendy)

For the background I added the deep blue pigment ink to the flat side of my snowflake circle embossing folder and ran white card through my platinum to give this letterpressed panel.  This is such a great technique to get more from your embossing folders.

I layered this onto more white, silver and blue before adding to a large 8x8" card blank.


Enjoy...

  6. Morning John, oh how lovely this is today, gorgeous, you are bringing your masks, stamps and inks to life - when I first looked at the picture I thought it had acetate on the front but I think that is a trick of the light.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    I've already made some Christmas cards with this embossing folder which is lovely. Next plan is to use the media plates combined with the folder.

  15. Love the card, great colour scheme. Didn't understand 'complex simplicity' though,so don't know whether to try making it. Shy away from complex, often means frustration! Sounds like an oxymoron to me, so is it simple or complex?

  21. Hi John. What a really special card. The bauble plate is lovely (as I may have mentioned before and I love the way you have made the background. I do tend to shy away from using this technique as I am frightened of staining my embossing folders.
