Evening all...

I recently joined a monthly project club – that means every month I get sent everything needed to make one card but with ideas on what else the stamps can be used for

This is the 1st kit and I love it!

I did this almost the same as the instructions for the card so please be aware this is NOT my design ok

I have also stamped out more to use in different ways so I'm sure you will get to see some of my own creations....

So materials for this card I used ….(most were in the pack)

Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...

6x6 scallop edge card

Versamark ink pad, clear embossing powder & heat gun

Memento black ink pad

silver card card

strips of plain white card to stamp on

baubles, holly, snowflakes and Noel stamps

lurex thread

Double sided tape

Sticky pads

Eazi Score Board & tool

Tonic 8” guillotine



Shaping tool from

Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat

To make the card ...

I had to measure the card front to 3” then fold it back...

The large sheet of silver mirri card was fixed to the back inside of the card with double sided tape.

The thin strip of white stamping card was stamped 4 times with the holly stamp using a versamark ink pad then covered with silver sparkle embossing powder and heated

Then the Noel was stamped in between the holly with the black Memento ink pad

This strip was stuck to the edge of the silver panel using double sided tape.

On the fold-back of the card front I randomly stamped the snowflakes then sprinkled with silver sparkle embossing powder and heated

The kit came with the silver and a white shaped pieces so the silver was was stuck to the fold back front – I did remember to only tape the left side...

On the white shaped piece I randomly stamped snowflakes and covered with some embossing powder that had no label but looked pale enough to be in the background but still show up – then heated it and put to one side for a moment

Now to the baubles – they were all stamped onto the white card with versamark then covered with silver sparkle embossing powder and heated – then cut out.

The circle stamp was stamped then the hanger stamped to the top of if and finally the snowflake inside it then all heated and cut out in one piece!

Once the 4 baubles were cut out I pierced a hole through the hangers and threaded the lurex thread and secured it on the back.

The other end of the thread was taped behind the large shaped piece I had just added the snowflakes to...I added all 4 baubles at different lengths.

The baubles were held in place with a sticky pad

The shaped panel was then attached to the shaped silver panel using sticky pads,

I finished by adding a clear AB gem to the centre of the 2 snowflakes on the baubles.

And that is the card all done – a nice way to get into stamping without having to colour in – in fact white and silver do look good together...

See you all again tomorrow
