Tis The Season for Tattered Reindeer

Sorry it's got so late folks but it's been one of those nothing going right Monday's all day and I will be glad when it's over and I've not even left the house once unless you count hunting for your bin's in the freezing cold with only a t-shirt, jeans and slippers on, and why is it always ours that get left somewhere out of sight every time and you have to make more than one trip just to retrieve them before someone else decides to claim them lol! Well I'm going to move on swiftly as time is very short now and me thinks this will be the last of our Christmas card making for this year so I'd better get a move on before 2015 gets here.
Once again we are using Tattered Lace dies and they are two different Reindeer's and the Winter Florals sets
I have used Tumbled Glass, Tea Dye and Black Soot Distress Inks along with Black Versafine and Clear Powder. Both Gold and Silver Gilding waxes and some crystal glitter. The oval die cut panels have been cut using the Tattered Lace Ovals set, and of course a couple of embossing folders.
There you go not too long a list for this week.   :-)
See you all soon.

The Most Wonderful Time

Hi! All. Well here it is December already and just about that time  to get the good old tree and decs out once again and for the first time in quite a while I have actually bought some new decorations for my tree as I had one of those lightbulb moments and decided to have a change of colour, well not quite a complete change just introduce some different colours and see what happens so you know what I'll be doing next weekend lol!  I'll bet some of you have already put your trees up, yes you know who you are!! And I'm just jealous lol!

Right lets get back to the important matter of our card making and it's back to Christmas this week by very popular demand, so I couldn't refuse after all it is DECEMBER x
Card one is 8x8
Traditional Red and Green with a touch of Holly.
I have used both the Xmas Tree and Poinsettia dies from Tattered Lace along with Sheena's Holly and Snow embossing folders and also my A4 Snowflake folder from Crafters Companion. I have distressed the snowflake background panel with Bundled Sage D.I.
The sentiment has been stamped in Black Versafine and embossed in clear powder.

Next we have a 6x6 card. A Black and White theme for this one.
The black background has been embossed with my Hessian folder from CC and highlighted with Silver Gilding Wax. The snowflake panel has been cut from an A4 patterned cardstock and the Tree is cut out of black card stock  making this a very simple and quick card to repeat as the die has created the main focal image with very little effort.
All in all two very easy cards for you to make this week so I will see you all soon x
