Kre8tors Blog Hop December 2018 – Christmas

Hello and welcome to the last Kre8tors blog hop of the year.  This month we are showcasing “Christmas*. You may have joined me from Pia Gerhardt.  For this blog hop I thought I would move away from my usual card or scrapbook page and venture into the world of Home Decor!  I had seen a Christmas plaque by another demo Julie Kettlewell and decided to put a Sign of Santa twist on it.

I inked the top of the plaque with Night of Navy.  First I sponged from the ink pad and then for the stubborn bits I sponged with the reinker. I drew round the heart on whisper white and then die cut scenes from the Hometown Greeting Edgelits.  I then ran the card through the Big Shot again with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder for the snow. Gold glimmer paper was cut and used as the light behind the houses.

Images from The Signs Of Santa set were stamped and coloured in using blend pens but of course you could use watercolour pencils,markers or ink and blends/aqua painter.. These were then cut out using the Santa’s Signpost Framelit Dies. The good news is if you buy the bundle of both the stamp set and dies you save 10%, the sad news is that this lovely set is retiring on 2nd January so you need to be quick before it sells out.  I glittered the images using Dazziling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle. I also fussy cut the snowman from the Santa’s Workshop DSP and punched some silver Glimmer Paper with the 1/8th hole punch (134365 £8.25) for the snowballs. Snowflakes from another retiring set Still the Night Stamp set were stamped onto the Night of Navy plaque using the  Frosted Shimmer paint.  Then adhere everything together using glue and Dimensionals.  Lastly ribbon was tied to string of the plaque.

I hope you like my Christmas plaque, below I have listed the products I have used.

Signs of Santa at Cuppa n Card

Hello and welcome to my blog. I thought you would like to see the card we made at Cuppa n Card yesterday.  It was a great quick card and so much fun to make and perfect to send in the post! The card was inspired by talented UK demo Sarah Jane Ray.

The base card is Old Olive, size A5 scored and folded in half. Whisper White mat card is 9.5cm x  14.8cm.  The images were stamped using momento black ink and then using a black pen I drew lines where I wanted the ground to be.  Then it was a case of colouring the images with pens.  I used Stampin’ Blend pens but you could use markers or ink/watercolour pencils with a paint brush and water.  To remove the oil left by your fingers from the card  wipe it with the embossing buddy (this will mean the glitter will only stick to the glue). Using fine line glue and glitter I created sparkling snow and the Pool Party blend pen gave it a bit of colour.

Above is a slightly stepped up version.  An extra mat layer of Cherry Cobbler Card  was added and then Whisper White card (which were torn to give rough edges and then layered up). Again glitter was added for sparkle.  The images were stamped, coloured and then die cut with the coordinating thinlit dies and Big Shot machine. ( You can buy the stamps 147690 £20 and dies 147911 £30 separately but you save 10% when you buy the Signs of Santa bundle!) these were then adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a 3d look.

On both cards the Merry Christmas sentiment from Star of Light was used and one was die cut from Merry Christmas Thinlit dies and sponged with ink and then layered up to give dimension.

Below is the list of products I have used to crate both cards.
