Inkylicious Christmas

I bought this stamps at the beginning of October and this is the first time I've stamped with it and actually added it to a card.  I got the inspiration from a card by Martine Smith on a facebook group I'm in.  Martines card was a bigger than this one, I made it to fit a 6 inch square card base.
The stamps is from Inkylicious and is called Winter Lodge.  I made little slopes by masking and inking against the mask, coloured the image with Promarkers.  The icicles were cut with a die from Marianne Dies, the snowflakes were Spellbinders dies.  I finished of with some glamour dust for the sparkle.
Thanks for looking 

Christmas Cards

It's a couple of weeks since I last posted, I've been busy decorating, so haven't really had time of felt like making cards.  I've made a couple of Christmas cards and this is one of them.  I saw this style on my friend Kathy's blog, and thought I'd give it a go.
I used a sponge to drag some colour along the bottom of the card, Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers, then inked through a stencil in the same colour.  I then stamps some snowflakes with Versafine Smokey Gray and finished off with a sentiment from JustRite stamps and some gems.

Crazy Bird Christmas

Don't you just love the Crazy Birds!  This one doesn't look happy at all does he...... lol.
I stamped the had and the bird first on water colour card, then cut them with the matching dies.  I then used Distress Inks to colour him in.  The branch and cones were cut with Marianne dies and the background was ran through an embossing folder with Distress Ink added with a blending tool.  It doesn't show on the picture, but I also rubbed Gilding Wax all over the embossing, the sentiment was cut with dies by Tim Holtz.
