Christmas Sprite | Face Stamp

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a lovely weekend.. don’t they go fast!!! We are kicking off another week of gorgeous inspiration with Jane Tyrrell, featuring our beautiful soul face stamp on a Christmas card…


Good Afternoon,

It is getting much colder now and we really are speeding towards Christmas…just 44 days to go..ho ho ho!

The shops are selling their 2019 festive baubles. I spotted these the other day…so festive and wintry.




I was inspired by the wintry baubles to make something festive to show how incredible versatile the Beautiful Soul girl is

When I first saw this set my first thoughts were to make her into a Christmas sprite. I’m sorry the photo below has shadow but it is getting darker in my garden studio now. It will soon be time for me to retreat indoors again to craft. I blended wilted violet, mermaid lagoon and pumice stone distress oxides across a piece of watercolour card. I then stamped the medium snowflake from Snow is Falling in white ink (this Christmas set has sold out on the website but you may well find it at your local stockist or craft shows) .



Once dry I stamped the girl using Versafine ink.
I stamped and white embossed the swirl and snowflakes from the Snowman Jack set

and a festive sentiment from Sentimental Christmas

I then stamped and white embossed some more small snowflakes in her hair.




Here is my finished sprite..



And a couple of close ups.. I added some blue pen as icy lipstick….brr she looks very chilly doesn’t she!






And one last shot..

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello! We have some alternative Christmas card inspiration for your today from Jane Tyrrell featuring our gorgeous Daydreaming girl stamp, who is dreaming of a white Christmas…


Good Afternoon!

The November challenge theme over in the Facebook group is  “Make it Sparkle”.  Although many of you might be thinking of fireworks, I am thinking ahead to Christmas and getting my stash of cards made.


I wanted to make something festive and sparkling using the lovely girl in the Daydreamer stamp set

I thought she might be dreaming about a white Christmas, so I set about making a snowy background for her.


I added some blue alcohol inks to glossy card and then added clear embossed the snowflakes from the Snow is Falling stamp set

I also used the brilliant circles from the Set the Tone stamp set

to create this snowy background..



I had the idea to have her at a window waiting for the magic of Christmas.


I die cut a window form Kraft card and stamped one of the Christmas sentiments from the Go To Christmas Words set

I put acetate in the windows for glass on which I clear embossed “ice” using the Two Tone stamp set again. Is it only me that remembers, before the days of central heating, that ice used to form on the inside of windows in the winter?!  I also added some DecoArt “snow” and added glitter to it.



I made a few of these windows and I have other plans for them too.



Of course I need a star to sparkle, well it is Christmas isn’t it?I used the star from the Peace,Love and Hope stamp set


peace - love - hope - stamps


and glitter gold embossed it onto my snowy background..


I stamped my daydreamer and fussy cut her out. I just added colour to her face, hat and hair. I added glossy accents to her glasses (seen in the final photos).




I then put my design together..
