Paper is from The Works and the stamp is by Nellie Snellen CT028 Two Reindeer. I am trying to use stamps that I have bought and not yet used and this is one from last year. I used Wow embossing powder and the stars are stickers from my haul. I have been very good and finished all the insides off on each card. You can't see the inside but I used a sentiment from Dovecraft.
I had this sunrays backing sheet left over from a project and thought it would go perfectly with another stamp not used before. This one is by Stamperia.WTK035. Doesn't seem to have a name. Embossed onto a mottled pattern kraft card which worked well. It is a nice big stamp 7x11cm.
I looked in my odds box of christmas papers and found two scraps of different red designs (they look as if they clash with the red cardstock but IRL they are perfect together) and made another sunrays backing sheet. This time I used a sentiment from Dovecraft on the same mottled Kraft card as above. You can see the mottling a bit clearer here. Wow gold embossing powder and sticky spot from stash.
Another look in my christmas papers and I found some odd sheets of LOTV papers which complimented the kraft card . The stamp is by Nellie Snellen CT030 Cosily Snow Cottage. Embossed with Wow gold powder. Adhered to red cardstock and then raised up with leftover strips of card instead of 3D pads. The pop of red brightens the card up considerably. Gold star from my stash.
Using up more LOTV paper and another stamp by Nellie snellen CT019 Idyllic Winter Scene. Again popped up on a red border of cardstock and stamped onto Kraft card. Gold dots are stickers from stash.
Was meant to be shown as card two but I haven't worked out how to delete a card and move it whilst in post it mode other than delete the post and start again. (Does anybody know?) Spotty paper is the reverse side of the reindeer paper The Reindeer stamp thi time is from Tattered Lace by Stephanie Weightman and came in a magazine set. Gold embossed and the gold spot a sticker from my stash.
Wow Mrs A...that’s a real flying start to the new year...you have been busy ,all of your cards are gorgeous...take care xxx
Wow, 6 cards in one time....gorgeous. Love the one with the sunrays most. Great effect.
Fabulous collection of cards Mrs A and I especially love the Nellie Stellen images stamped onto the kraft card xx
Wow you really have started the year off with a bang by making these 6 fabulous cards. A lovely selection.
What a fabulous collection of Christmas cards and it's only January 3! Way to go! Fun post to read! Stay safe.
WOW Valery, what an amazing collection of wonderful cards, especially for someone who was caught on the hop. Each card is beautifully designed and coloured, I love the embossed Noel, a brilliant use of kraft card too, Kate x x
I love kraft and your cards are stunning.
A really impressive start to your Christmas crafting Mrs A- especially as you weren't expecting to have to use the kraft. The designs/colour and stamps are lovely- I really like the look of the gold embossing on the kraft- never thought of trying that combination! I bet it looks fabulous IRL- getting a decent photo at the moment is a nightmare- it's been pretty dark all day here for some time now!
Happy New Year- and yes...bring on the vaccine!!
You already worked hard Mrs. A! They are all very beautiful, I think the combinations with craft paper are very chic.
Kind regards, Wilma xx
Wow! Such fabulous compilation of kraft cards with gold! The patterned papers are just the perfect combos and love especially the deers ones!!
You've really gone all out with the kraft card - seems an odd choice for Christmas cards but it certainly works.
Happy New Year Valerie-Anne. Well you sure have excelled yourself with those bonnie cards. Love the introduction of colours too. Mine is just boring craft card and distressed with Gathered twigs. No blue on it at all. Funny how sometimes screens change things. Hugs Rita xxxx
Wow you have been busy. Can't believe how many you have done. Love the Nellie snellen images. Great collection xx
Oh my goodness Mrs A what a beautiful selection of cards you have been really creative with them all they are so beautiful xx
You have certainly been busy Mrs A. They are all lovely cards but I do particularly like the sunray backgrounds as they are a great way to use up smaller pieces of paper (and like most crafters I have heaps of those!)
I have found that right clicking on the image that you want to remove from a post and then clicking cut works. Then I just do a normal add image where I want to add it. I have had to do it a few times when I clicked in the wrong place and it didn't insert it in the right place. Hope that works for you.
Fabulous cards you have made ....happy new year ...
Hugs Sylvie xx
You pulled it out of the bag, these are all great. The gold embossing looks really stylish x
These are gorgeous! Especially love the gold embossed winter scenes. The backing papers work very well too. I tend to forget about using kraft so this is a good reminder of how great it looks.
Wow Mrs A you have been busy. Great selection of cards!
Oh golly, you put me to shame, I haven't made any cards yet this year!!! These are all super. Hope you are all well, have a happy and safe 2021, Hazelx
Hello Valerie. Goodness Gracious, I'd say that was a stunning recovery to a change of plan on the CCC. Each card is amazing, and I love how you've combined the 'kraft commission' with all the lovely papers. Wonderful designs, and I especially loved the combination of the DP deer with the kraft deer. Wishing you & Doc a marvelous & healthy New Year, and hope maybe I can get back in the CCC if allowed. Just not quite ready as yet! Hugs & TFS. Mary H.
These are wonderful Valery - it doesn't look like you had any trouble rising to the late change - well done you! Brilliant! Hugs rachel xx
Wow!! Mrs A these are all amazing designs and a great use of Kraft card. I struggle to use Kraft card, so you have given me some inspiration. Stay safe and hugs, Carol S.xxx
Your craft cards look fabulous Mrs A and love your creative design layouts x. Sending New Year hugs x.
Greetings Valery, wow you have been busy, what lovely selection of designs.
