Christmas Card using stencils, dies and stamps...

Hi everyone, this is Terry. 

Today I'm showing you a Christmas project using stamps, stencils and dies...
The funniest thing happened.....I just realized that it does not take that long before it is Christmas so I thought that I would make this project a Chistmassy one.


 I was ready for my first picture of the products that I have used, I had in my mind these products....but....as you will see a few pictures down the post, it turned out Different than I had in mind lol....but anyways, I worked with the fabulous Poinsettia Lace Dies, they are AMAZING. Placed the dies in my Big Shot and they were cut out perfectly....You will notice why and what when you check out my Tutorial....
I chose 3 Stars from the Poinsettia Lace Dies and I wanted to give them a light blue color because Christmas makes me think NOT only of white from the snow but also the Light blue and it is a different color than usual.... So I sprayed lots of water on the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. 

And because I wanted to let the Poinsettia Lace (stars) look a bit different than "normal" I used a bit of shaded lilac on them too....
I added the Nuvo Glitter Drops and Jewel Drops on the stars because I wanted to give them a bit of Glitter and make them even more light Blue than with only the Distress Ink. So what do you think about these "stars"? I call them stars because I think they look like them, what about you??

I played with Distress Oxide inks on my background for the card, because I think they blend so nicely together....I used purple, reddish, white and blue. When I put the distress ink on it and it was dry, I started working with chlorine. I wanted to know if that would also make the color lighter, I thought my background for a Christmas card was a bit too dark. And quess what....it worked out the way I wanted it to be lol..... So after that...... I played with the Snowflake Border Stencil with Transparant Texture Paste, if you look at the picture of my background you can see the Snowflakes coming up to the front, Can you see them? 

At first I had a bit of a problem with the Transparancy....so what I did to fix it was.... I grabbed my paintbrush and put Gesso on it and what happened the snowflakes came a bit more to the foreground, problem solved.

So now you can see the Transparant snowflakes can't you? 

Perhaps you ask yourself why did she post this picture? Well it is because I wanted to show you that there is a blue piece of cardstock behind my colorfull background. Can you see it?
And I played a bit with the Doodle Borders all around my card.....

I thought my card was missing something and then I figured out that the Holly Flourish Stamp set has such fabulous curly stamps in the stampset and I just had to use them...

At first I wanted to stamp with White Ink but when I did you could not even see it...then I thought I would stamp with the Black ink and when it was dried up I would put the Nuvo Glitter on top of it, if you click on the picture I hope you can see it...so another "problem" solved lol......

And I placed the Sentiment 25 December from the Gnome stamp set on it to finish my card. I embossed the sentiment in white. 

So this is finished project, so I hope you like it ? ...and might I ask you if you would make a card like this who would you sent it to? I would love to see your projects and I would LOVE to see your version of it....

Thank you for visiting the blog and sure hope to see your projects.
