On Sunday we took Marley (our Granddaughter) and Tiffany to see Legally Blonde starring Lucy Durack as Elle Woods. The show was playing at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney. It was a real hoot! The best fun was when we went to the stage door and Marley was able to get autographs from the stars of the show.
Today I have some Christmas cards to show you. I was greatly inspired by Marisa Job and how she used a JustRite Stampers Holly Background stamp. So I made a few and these are what I will show you.
This card was made by stamping the background twice and using pieces from the second stamping to create the bits for the decoupage I needed. I coloured everything with my Copics and it seemed at one point that I was colouring for Australia!! There was a lot to do (I made a bulk number of 6!!!!).
Above you can see a few of the others I made; showing how the Petaloo red and white poinsettias look on the cards - or indeed a combination of both.
Here's a card in the series where I used decorative Christmas buttons (From Spotlight) for variety.
The border is another JustRite border stamp which I cut out using one of the Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies. Once everything was coloured and decoupaged I layered all my pieces with scarlet Kaiser Craft weave card stock and then placed onto white card stock.
I added a string of pearls around the edge, another couple of larger pearls in the central design and a little Crystal Stickles to give it a little sparkle.
The central medallion is a stamp from Waltzing Mouse stamps and is one of my favourite of their sets.
Details for some of the main ingredients that I used:
I hope you like my cards, they were fun to make and they look just yummy.
Thanks for calling in to see my cards ......
