I was at Archiver's yesterday and made these 4 new Christmas cards and tag. I can't decide which is my favorite yet. It was a fun class as I was able to use some of the stamps I don't have and love. I learned a few new tips like adding soft flower with a glue pen. You can get a very detailed texture on your cards or layouts.
The reindeer is from the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight collection CMS052, I used VersaMark to stamp and then Barn Door Distress embossing powder. To detail it I used a glue pen and glitter on his chest. The flower was cut using the TH Sizzix Alterations Tattered Florals Die.
The Letter To Santa CMS053 was used in this card. The words were placed around Santa and the Flower Soft was used with the glue pen to accent the pine needles in the corner of the card. Glitter was added to Santa's hat and beard using the glue pen also. A paint dabber was used to color the 25.
This tag is using the Holiday Collections stamp collection CMS051. It was quick and easy using a glue pen and some Flower soft in the corner to accent the pine needles. I also used the glue pen and glitter to accent Santa's hat and beard and the snowman in the corner. A little red inking and I was done.
The trees are from the Reindeer Flight set CMS052. I used a glue pen and Flower Soft on the center trees to add detail. I don't know where the Peace, Love, & Joy sentiment comes from. The grunge board swirl is cut from the TH Alterations Elegant Flourishes Die. It was embossed in gold and then sanded to distress.
