red and white

Hello there. It has been a while since my last post. However this weekend I found a bit of time to create 3 Christmas cards.

They were inspired by the challenge on LIM challenge blog. This week they asked for cards created in the colours of the flags.

Now since I'm Maltese, this gave me a limited palette of red and white. So I thought that this would work for Christmas.

So I got out a Claritystamp stencil with snowflakes and used it to make all 3 cards. For the first one, I used sparkle gel from Imagination crafts. The sentiment is from the word chains by claritystamp. I used red geranium archival ink and clear embossed.

For the second one, i used red geranium ink and dabbed it through stencil with a stencil brush. I heat set it and then 'foiled' it with the sparkle medium. it gives a beautiful effect as you can see from the pics below. The sentiment is one that came as a freebie with a magazine. 

 The last one is using polar Cosmic Shimmer white sparkle paste. It is then finished in the same way as above. So 3 more done, hugs Theresa xx.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:


  1. Three gorgeous cards using texture paste and then red ink Theresa, the sparkle is fabulous on all three. x

  2. Loving your twinkly LIM entry this week using the colours of your flag, of course the other cards are delightful too


  3. Love this sweet design, Theresa, and the cards with the sparkly flakes are my faves - very smart of you to make 3 at once, you're way ahead of the Christmas card game! Thanks for sharing these with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
