Christmas Cards made at Art of Craft and Pickwell

Hi ladies,
i have been a good girl and downloaded cards as promised.
Hope you like them.

 These are made from the new photo aperture cards. using a 6 x6 stamp inside the aperture the stamp is from the home for xmas range.
This stamp in the card i photographed on a light beige cushion, (made at art of craft) is stamped in black. the aperture card is inked in artiste die ink dark yellow - then stamped with home for xmas cross stitch hearts olive/red ink and small red solid hearts. the holly and baubles are stamped on green and red card with gold ink and embossed in gold. then cut out and stuck on with silicone glue.
 the card photographed on a dark background  (Pickwell farm) is stamped in brown on the background inside the aperture.
 the card is inked up in pigment dark yellow (direct to paper) and embossed with enchanted gold embossing powder. the baubles were stamped onto some home for xmas red paper. also embossed and cut out. holley stamped and embossed on green card . the cross stitch hearts and sentiment are also stamped and embossed cut out and 3d'd on card .

 This card is made using a home for xmas stamps . the tree is stamped using the new artiste pigment ink.
first stamped all over in the dark yellow, then i used a dabbing action randomly over this with a dark orange. finally also dabbing here and there with a chocolate ink pad. then when stamped it has a nice varigated effect.
i then embossed it with a clear pearl powder.  i added sparkly stones and a ribbon. matted and layered the image on red home for xmas paper. with gold mirri under that.
the white card was covered in a heart - home for xmas paper.
the sentiment is also a stamp from home for xmas range. the larger label stamped on kraft paper in red ink.
Bakers twine is wrapped around and then a bow to finish over the top stamped label.

 These are two little stamped up 4 x 4 cards. the main subject are the tulip stamps. coloured in with the new Artiste permanent pens - vintage. using bows and stones to accent them.
just matted onto some boofle red paper and or home for xmas red paper. on the xmas tree card i have inked the edges in green ink and on the snowman one there is red mirri board behind the image.

 This is a quick card, made up from the Michael Powel tall card decoupage kit. i just used on layer on top of the pre stamped image on the card, and cut the xmas tree from a further piece that could go on top. i decided i just wanted the tree. lots and lots left over to make more cards from this one kit. the sentiment is from the tulip range.

 This is a card i made at about 3 .45 as someone asked about the glitter toppers . this is very simple and could be elaborated on. i used a frame from the ultimate die cut set for boofle which i love.

I did do a scrapbook page, not taken a photo yet, but will load that up tomorrow
