Christmas tree atc

Here’s a Christmas themed ATC that I haven’t shared with you yet :

ATC_Kerstboom

 

For the background I started off with a gelli plate print made with metallic acrylic paints, which I almost completely covered up with stamped Tim Holtz images using Brilliance ink. The christmas trees are also made of gelli printed paper. I added some doodling to define the shapes of the trees and banners and added the  presents (Stampotique).  

This is my entry for the following challenges:

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful holiday season!

Colourful butterly and flowers atc

Again an ATC to share with you:

In reality, there’s a bit of bling involved, for the silhouette flowers on both the square and the background were inked with distress inks and sprayed with perfect pearls before being stamped.

I’d like to enter this atc into two challenges:

 Stamps used

  • Butterfly: The Artistic Stamper
  • Silhouette flowers: Hero arts
  • Script background: Darkroom Door
  • Papillon sentiment: Katzelkraft

Glow in the dark snowman

Well, it’s winter solstice today, so I thought it a perfect time to share a wintry ATC with you!

At first sight, there’s nothing special about this ATC, but there’s a catch: the image glows in the dark! I wish I could’ve shown you somehow, but I was not able to catch the glow on photo…

I created the background using glimmer mist and heat embossed a few snow crystals in white. The snowman and the sign (both Stampotique) were stamped with Stazon on ‘glow in the dark paper’ and cut out. I added the snow crystals that were punched out of the glow in the dark paper and added a bit of Distress stickles at the bottom.

This is one ATC in a series of four and they are on their way to The Stamp Man for their December swap ‘t Is the Season‘.

It’s also my entry for the current Stampotique challenge ‘Punches and die cuts‘.

Holiday Greeting

This week, Simon says stamp and show wants to see a Holiday Greeting. Here’s mine:

The background was sprayed with glimmermist and the image was heat embossed in black.

I’m not a big fan of Christmas themed images, but I do adore this Inkadinkado stamp. It’s different (no santa, no reindeer, no snowman, …), it’s simple, stylish and very versatile!  Tim Holtz’ Baroque die cut has also proved very useful in the creation of my Christmas cards this year. I just love that shape!

Words

This week, Lots to Do wanted to see words on our cards. Here’s my entry:

I just love using this lovely winter poem (Third Coast Rubber stamps) in my Christmas cards. The floral background (Darkroom Door) was stamped with a Pearl Paint Dabber and than sponged with Distress inks.
