Warm Winter Wishes.

Hi there Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Hope you are all well and sending ((Hugs))  to those of you who are not feeling well.   We have had another lovely day here today, although there has been a chilly wind.   Our red squirrels have been very busy collecting nuts and burying them in my window boxes lol!!    I looked out of our lounge window to see three wild rabbits making a good job of cutting our lawn for us lol!  makes a change as they usually eat our flowers!     I  went out to take a photo and one was spoooked and the other two fled!   Between the birds and the red squirrels it is costing us a fortune in food but it is so worth it to see the wild life so close to us, we are so....lucky, particularly with the red squirrels!  just so.....cute lol.

I would like to share another Christmas card with you all.   This card was shown on Imagination Craft's show last month on the Hochanda T.V. show.  

Using white card, cut a square slightly smaller than the white base card.   Paint the edges of this matt with the Antique Gold Starlight paint.   When dry, matt onto the base card.

Take the 'Snowflake' background card and lay the Snowflake Crescent' stencil onto it.   Stipple the Gold Starlight paint through the design, using the large stencil brush.   Add small amounts of the Red & Green Starlight paints  onto the snowflakes.

Spread the Diamond Sparkle Medium over the whole of the design using the metal spatula.   The red gold  and green Starlight paints will show through the diamond Sparkle Medium, to give a subtle colour to the snowflakes.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.

Matt this onto the gold edged card using double sided sticky tape and some Magi-bond glue.   (Card will adhere better on the gold paint when using the Magi-bond glue alongside the D.S.S. Tape).

Die-cut the tag using the Spellbinder's die from white card.   Stamp the greeting onto the tag using the gold Starlight paint.   (Just a little tip here - lightly spritz  your stamp first, before adding the gold Starlight Paint.   I use a piece of cut 'n' dry foam to add the paint to the stamp surface).   Wash your stamp as soon as practicable.      Colour the tag with the two distress inks around the edges.   Fix this to the top right of the base card, using sticky foam pads.

Add a gold cord bow and a blue gemstone.

Well that's all from me for the moment,   enjoy your coming weekend.   I will be back  with another project to share with you, very soon.   As always, I would like to say thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments.   I appreciate every comment and every visit.   Take care of yourselves until next time.

                                                                 Love and rainbows,

                                                                  Hugs   Jennifer xx.
