I hope you are all doing ok this Wednesday, today I have my first post for Visible Image and the lovely Helen and Mark since all the hospital trips began. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them from the bottom of their heart for all the patience and support Helen has given me not only as co owner of Visible Image but as my friend too. Helen you are a lovely kind lady and I am proud to call you my friend , I really have appreciated your kind words and you are very special to me.
Also I want to thank all the wonderful Internet family ( that's all you lovelies) who leave me such wonderful kind whole hearted messages everyday , I wish I lived near each one of you so I could pop in with treats as I am so pleased you are all on my blog as part of the family. Huge hugs of appreciate from my house to yours ladies.
Ok back to today's card , I know its still a little early but I thought I'd do a little Christmas theme card , You all know how I love Visible Image stamps and these are from 3 little sets and I chose a gorgeous red with Festive berries distress ink and a purple seedless preserves and at first thought I would think hmm not sure but I love how it came out.
What do you think?
Enchanting snowflake stamp randomly over the page, stamping off the page too. I then heat set them and took the script stamp from the Revolution set but first I used an anti static pad to run over the page to ensure no transfer of embossing powder on the snowflakes, I used the script in just two places on my background and embossed with Clear detail powder.
I then took my inks
Festive berries and Seedless preserves from Lord Holtz of distress mansions.
I used the two colours in my usual way and blended them together in two layers on the background , I also took my snowflake and stamped it in each colour tone on tone and added a little interest into the background too.
I took the swirl from the Revolution set also and stamped it randomly in the top right and the bottom left corners and added parts of the swirl here and there with versamark again and embossed with bright gold powder, I also took a piece of card and stamped and embossed in gold 3 snowflakes which I cut out and stuck together to stick to the card on the left of the sentiment.Winters miracle verse written by our lovely Helen of course. I cut it out with a Sissix framelet die and I just love the shape , it is so pretty and fits the verse perfectly, I decided I didn't want to cover the lovely background more so I just inked the edges of the sentiment slightly and sprinkled glitter all over the edges and all over the snowflake too.
And lastly a long look at the card from the corner so you can see the layers and the dimension on the snowflake, all I did was fussy cut out the three snowflakes and bend them n the middle and hot glued them together , I threaded and glued a piece of gold string through the snowflake and added it to the ribbon on the card, i added the little bow on top and the bling to finish it off.
adding a few little pearls to each ribbon too.
Here are the stamp sets I used for this one.
