Hi there! Gosh it has been such a crazy time here, but we are finally catching up with ourselves and we are back to continue sharing some of the incredible samples made with our NEW Christmas stamps and stencils! Up next is Jane Tyrrell with a stunning card featuring our ‘Scribbled Star’ stamp with our fabulous NEW ‘Christmas Eve’ stencil…
Today I am delighted to be blogging my first sample using the new Visible Image Christmas stamps and stencils. You can check out all the fabulous newbies here. This is a perfect range to compliment their existing Christmas stamps, and they are so affordable at just £5.99 each!
For my first make I decided to make a mixed media card.
This is what I got up to;
I made an inky background by pressing these distress inks onto my craft mat, adding some spritzes of water and then dipping in my card, drying between layers.
I applied crackle texture paste through the stencil and left to dry. You will see the crackle in the final photos, the photo below is when it is wet. When the crackle was dry I painted it with gold metallic paint which again you can see in the final photos.
I stamped the star onto gold card in black Versafine and clear embossed. I then cut out the centre of the star stamp.
I stamped and embossed the star a second time onto the inky background below the stenciled sentiment and then stuck on the cut out gold star using foam tape to raise it slightly. Using gold ink I repeat stamped the tiny starts from the O Christmas tree set.
I then matted it up using blue and black card onto a 7″ square white card blank. Here is my finished card;
with some close ups..
and one final shot..
These gorgeous new Christmas stamps and stencils lend themselves to any card making style from mixed media to clean and simple.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Bye for now,
Wow what a stunner! The sentiment looks amazing, especially against your distress background. Wonderful design! Thank you Jane ♡
