Traditional Christmas Tutorial Day 3!

I had such a fab time on Sunday & Yesterday down at Hochanda! I absolutely loved creating these samples for my show! Like I've said on my previous tutorials....they are honestly pretty easy to make..especially if you follow the step by step tutorials! Why don't you get organised for Christmas early and be the envy of ALL your friends!! I hope you like my new Traditional Christmas Collection! A lot of you are asking how I come up with ideas for my new collections....for this one I honestly sat down at the end of last year....watched lots of Christmassy films and got creative! Christmas is all about feeling warm, having family around and keeping up all traditions, old and new! I feel (and I hope you agree) that my new collection does just that!

Materials used:

Christmas Green Centura Pearl Card PackSheena Douglass Stamping CardWatermark Ink Pad VersamarkForest Moss Distress Ink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Extra products used:
Collall 3D glue gel and red pearls or red liquid pearls, Double Sided Foam Tape

To Create:
1. Die-cut the Entwined Holly die using green card. Taking a pair of small scissors, snip into the die-cut to create a branch...think of it like pruning your shrubs! You don't always have to use the whole die...you can create even more designs when you just think outside the box!

2. Create a 6x6 card blank using stamping card. Next, trim white card 5 1/4" square, then place the largest square from Die'sire Essentials squares onto your card and die-cut in your machine. Stamp a sentiment using Versamark, then heat emboss using green embossing powder for that extra pizzazz.

3. Die-cut the outer edge bauble die using white card. Next, using Versamark, and a patterned stamp, stamp image onto die-cut....then heat emboss with gold embossing powder!

4. Apply distress ink "Forest Moss" around the edge of the bauble, then either using liquid pearls or red pearls, decorate your branch and bauble.

    These cards are just beautiful. I've loved all of the different things I've been able to pick up of yours. Your magazine you offered thru HSN has been amazing and so much fun. I haven't seen any of these offered on HSN is there some place else I can order them since I live in the states? Thank you for sharing your many talents with us.
