I am running all behind as I had intended to do stitching round each of the cards but at the moment I can't even get the sewing machine to work let alone stitch. The instructions are very ambiguous even though in plain English. So after a frustrating morning I gave up and finished the cards as you see them here. Of course most of the light had gone by then so spent more frustrating hours trying to get decent photos. Managed it with the first two but the third for some reason just would not show up the sparkle glitter on the card.
Using a Nellie Snellen stamp called 'Winter Landscape with Deer.' I have stamped onto watercolour card and painted using my Caran D'Ache Gouache Studio watercolour paints. The sentiment is by Julie Hickey from her Essential Christmas Sentiments set. Once it was dry I painted on the silver glitter glue using a fine paint brush. Basecard is made from forest green cardstock cut to size. At first glance it might look like I have ribbon running through the middle of the card but it is simply where I have used two oddments of silver glitter card which were not quite big enough so I put the gap in the middle and it works well. Gem from my stash.

Another Nellie Snellen stamp a slightly larger one and called simply 'Winter 1'. Painted and then glittered the same as above . Mounted onto silver glitter card and dark blue cardstock cut to size for the base card. The sentiment is by Julie Hickey from her Poinsettia Border set. Gems from my stash.

It was actually the first scene I stamped and painted but I just couldn't get a decent photo of the sparkle on the snow so after a glass of wine I took a second piccy of the card lying down (the card not me!) so that is why I am showing it last.
Again a Nellie Snellen scene called 'Winter Waterfall' painted and glittered the same. The sentiment is by Studio Light from their Winter Memories set.
Gems from my stash. This photo shows the glitter up but not the painting making it look just black/white with the blue water.
