Snowy Blue Christmas

Two versions...

Two versions…

These were two cards I designed for our class to create during our November session.  I had seen the style on the right where the images seem to fade away with the second and third generation stamping and later found the idea of putting decoupage medium on dryer sheets and sprinkling it with glitter before attaching it to the same fade-away style image.

My Spellbinders Heirloom Oval Die created the white frame, an Inkadinkadoo stamp set called Trees provided the forest and the deer.  Heaven only knows about that stamp set; it was given to me by a friend of a friend and may have been discontinued long ago.  Besides the silver craft paper, I use white and several shades of blue.  The same is true of the inks and embossing powders I used.

The flowy, soft, smooth bow can only be done with real silk ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon).  Nothing else has the drape of real silk.  Rayon seam binding comes close but has a rougher texture that sometimes doesn’t seem appropriate for the card being made. This was 1/4 inch white silk ribbon twined on a Becca Feeken Bow Maker and teased down to one side.

Please be sure to comment below…  it makes my day!  Blessings & Hugs, y’all..!!

Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

  1. Those are stunning. I love the colours, and that stamp is so pretty x

    • Actually, it is two little evergreen stamps (about 1″ high each) and a little deer stamp from the set I mentioned. But thank you for the view and the sweet comment..! I went to your blog and was surprised by your bride & groom card… I was sure it was embossed until I read your description. Really cool… The ladies in my class will be impressed when we do a project using that idea.! I take it you are “Down Under”? Isn’t it a wonderful world when we can meet folks from around the world? I love it. Have a happy day.!
