Gold Nativity...

Happy Friday,
 I am at Inspirations in Preston today and will be sharing a few sneak peaks of my New Christmas Die range which launches next week on the 26th July on Hochanda.

Today I am sharing a card made using gold izink pigment ink pad ( available on the show) the Festive Silhouettes clear star p set and the Square Circle media plate frame and matching dies.

I stamped a mix of Snowflakes form my snowflakes clear stamp set onto the media plate frame.  These are stamped in Silver, Gold and Copper pigment ink pads using them onto the plate softens the look giving the dimensional look on the frame.

I cut the frame out using the matching die set with just a gold mirror card layers which brings out the gold.

The centre is stamped in gold and blended using more gold ink and a finger dauber to soften the look.

I matted and layers the card in more white and gold using the new Falling Snow embossing folder from Crafts Too ( part of an offer on the Hochanda shows next week) to soften the look,

  1. Morning John, oh this is so beautiful, the stamps come into their own with this creation but also the mat and layering is so accurate, how do you get it to be so correct, I think it is old age creeping in with me because mine seems to go sqew-wif, don't laugh now because it comes to us all, ha ha. Enjoy yourself in Preston.

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