Christmas Joy (by Asha)

Good morning, friends. It's my turn to show a couple of projects featuring this month's fabulous festive stamps.

My first card showcases one of the new individual cling mounted stamps called Rejoice!. I prepared the background by blending several colours of Distress Inks and masking off sections to create mountains. I stamped and coloured the angel with alcohol markers and the wings are heat embossed on vellum. I fussy cut and adhered both onto the inked background, leaving most of the wings free so she looks like she's flying.


My second card is an easy number. I started by making the background by blending Distress Inks. Then I stamped the deer, trees and snowflakes from the Sparkling Trees A5 sheet and created a scene. Next,  I coloured the images with water colour pencils and finished the project with Stickles and Liquid Pearls.


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you're having fun with these stamps and getting ahead with your Christmas makes. The rest of the team have lots of design inspiration to share so please swing by often. As always, more pictures and details of all products used can be seen at my blog.

Beijinhos,
Asha
