Some of you might remember that during this summer me, Marina and Pia have had fun exchanging card making materials and posting cards made with the same "ingredients". After our first round was over we decided to have another go... But this time with Christmas card supplies! I sent the first kit , "Textured Christmas" and you can see the photo of it below:
The kit included textured paper, burlap paper, woodgrain paper, stamped Angels (Stampendous), gold heat embossed multi-language sentiment stamp, glittery, thick glittery die cuts out and some metallic snowflakes.
So, my cards!
In my first card I wanted the glittery, thick snowflake to be the star of the card. I also used textured paper from the kit by covering the whole card base with it. I added rhinestones and a black sentiment strip with white heat embossed sentiment. I love the simplicity of this card and yet it's quite fun and detailed!
In my second card I used both woodgrain papers from the kit and a glittery, green, die cut tree from the kit. The sentiment is heat embossed with glittery copper powder -it's surprisingly subtle in real life and this card did not become so screamingly glittery as I was afraid of! :) I'd like to enter this card to Addicted to Stamps: Trees/Branches and or leaves and Penny Black and More: Add a sentiment. The sentiment comes from Penny Black: Joyous-stamp set.
In my third card I used the heat-embossed, multi language sentiment stamp as my focal point and "embellished" it with stamping Penny Black poinsettias with my Zig markers and water. I also inked the stamped portion of the card faintly with DI for less stark look. I can't decide if this is way too busy or artsy and pretty. :) I'd like to enter this card to Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Nature.
Then, my fourth card... with the burlap paper. The whole idea for this kit started from the burlap paper -I really don't know how to use it and I have a huge pile of it! I can't wait to see how Marina and Pia use it in their projects. I ended up covering a whole card base with the burlap, added metallic snowflakes from the kit and paper cut snowflakes and sentiment strip (not from the kit). I can't say I absolutely love this but at least I got some burlap used!
In my final card I used woodgrain paper, the angels (colored in with Copics) and metallic snowflakes from the kit and combined them with a white heat embossed sentiment strip, from Penny Black again. The wings of the angels I of course had to glitter up with wink of stella and the dots in the brown dress sort of shine too. I'd like to enter this card to Glitter'N'Sparkle: Add something metal.
Now you've reached the end of this photo heavy post, I hope you enjoyed what you saw! Do visit Marina and Pia now and have a look what they have created with these same materials! Thanks for popping by!
