Northern Lights Technique

I have never been to see the Northern Lights, but I can only imagine what an incredible display it emits! I recently saw a card on our Demonstrator Planning Place FB page (one of the perks of being a demo-connecting and seeing creations from all over) by Kylie Bertucci from Australia where she used Pear Pizzazz for the card. It was stunning and the best part is that you only use ONE color!!

I thought about how to make it more like a peaceful Christmas Scene and came up with Pool Party as my card front piece to sponge. Your fingers will get a little inky-but that’s a good day in my book! I used a Stampin’ Sponge (I cut into 1/4’s) and some Night of Navy ink to sponge from the edge towards the area I wanted to be the “lights”.

After I sponged the Pool Party piece, I took out the Snow Front stamp set. It was my first time playing with this set, and it does not disappoint! It was so easy to make this scene look like fresh snow on Christmas Eve! I used a Chalk Marker and some Wink of Stella to make it more magical!

Check out the video to see how easy it is to make! I am still getting used to my new set up…..enjoy!

Last of my Christmas creations…

Gift Card holder closed

Belive it or not, I still have one gift that has not been delivered!  It’s a gift card so I made this cute folded card to hold it.  I was inspired by Mary Fish’s site for this.  I LOVE the Festival of Prints pack!  It has 48 pieces of paper measuring

4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.  The new Spring Catalog has a new set, Print Poetry!  Great for quick cards!

Here is a view of the inside and the belly band that goes around it.  TIP: when sealing the belly band, make sure your gift card is inside so it will still fit when you slide it off.  I had to re-attach mine.  I used the Ovals Framelits to make a blank area for your recipient.

Stamps: Greetings of the Season

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade

Ink: Cherry Cobbler & Lucky Limeade

Accessories: Framelits Ovals & Apothecary Accents; rhinestones
