Merry Christmas

Good morning friends and visitors.
Merry Christmas to you all.
Sharing my DT card from over on Poppystamps blog  My last posting this year! Where did this year go!!

Simple card design today, as I needed a card in a hurry.. Background embossing folder from my stash. This I have frantage with Stampendous Chunky White and Shabby Green Embossing enamel..I sprinkled some mix of both product onto my embossed card panel, then using a heat gun I melted from underneath, by using tweezers holding the panel..Not my fingers! as this can get very hot. (below)

"Evergreen Trees" from Poppystamps, cut and did the same method as the panel card, with a touch of green ink to finish the edge.. "Snowy Merry Christmas" after I die cut in my machine, I did the same to the Merry, but here you have this detail on the die cut, so I inked with clear  ink then sprinkled the mix on, heat from above as ink holds the embossing enamel.

Adhere the "Grazing Deer" among the trees, finished with a few "Shiny Snowflakes" with red "Cheery Cardinals"

Thank you for stopping by and your wonderful support,  Pam x.

Fairy Magic.

Good morning Friends and Visitors..
Sharing my post from over on 

Now I thought these cute tiny fairies would come in handy! "Magnificent Mini Fairies"  think they make a cute filler for my "Floral Candle" display and perfect for the New Poppystamps "Large Window Cutout"

This is how I did my Window..from a card size 51/4" x 61/2".Place the Window die as shown.

Using the Snowscape die ..coloured with inks and sprayed with a mix of water/bleach..this I adhered to my main card 5 3/4" x  6 3/4".
I have used foam tape to the reverse of my card with the window cutout..onto this I placed a piece of Velum paper. Next adhere to the main card, so you have a small equal margin around.

Window complete with velum and cute fairy,  another from the set of three fairies added her wings ..placed with the script Fairy Magic.

Third Fairy among these beautiful "Floral Candles" " Poinsettia Mini" and "Greenery Bundle"  finished with a few random dots of gold liquid pearl drops.

Hope you like this card style as much as me, something I will create again.
Thank you for stopping by and any comments you leave. Pam
