Fairy Christmas Tree

Hello Again …

… for my second post today …

I have been using up odds and ends in an attempt to make some quick cards … and I got somewhat side tracked. 🙂

Let’s start with card where I used the odds and ends:

Fairy Christams Tree I

I recently tried out my flitter glue starter kit with this Lavinia Stamp.  Normally I would only use it with rubber stamps, but I decided to give it a go anyway. I promise I washed the glue off straight away as I didn’t want to damage my stamp. I wanted to see how it would turn out on white, but I wish I had tried it on darker card instead, never mind. I started making this card by lamplight -not daylight- and the colours seemed to match quite well only for it to have to go into the rescue pile. Above is the rescued version, initially I had used some pink ribbon and no faux stitching. To blend the colours better I used a green fine liner pen and added the faux stitching and changed the ribbon from pink to dark green. To finish I added a few touches of glitter glue.

Anyway, this card inspired me to make the card from my previous post – CAS Snowflake- plus the following two cards too:

Faiiry Christmas Tree II

I want to enter the above card into the following challenges

Lavinia Stamps Blog Challenge – Anything Goes (Hi Eileen, please let me know if you want me to email you any of these for the gallery.)

Stamplorations – Stamps & Silhouettes (Hi Shery & Nonni. I made this just as inspiration. Looking forward to get designing for you!)

52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown – Any Past 2013 Challenge Anything Goes (mine is January 2013 – metallic silver, purple & white)

Hope you feel somewhat inspired.

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
