On the First Day of Christmas - John Lockwood style

Hi everyone, hope you all enjoyed your weekend and raring to get back into the swing of things i.e. craft class that is and as we have had a break for a couple of weeks I thought we'd keep things fairly simple so I have put together a couple of cards using a set of John Lockwood's new stamps from Creative Expressions, one is The Twelve Days of Christmas and then other is A Partridge in a Pear Tree, they are certainly something a little different for your Xmas cards.
Let's get going and see what you think!

As you can see here is a photo of the products that I have used which include three of the new Cloud Inks along with the White Gold and Menthol Starlight paints, some Silver Gilding flakes, White, Gold and Clear Embossing Powders, Clear and Black Soot ink pads, Black Versatfine and a Cosmic Shimmer gold pearl glue. Forgot to mention I also used my Silver Gilding Wax.

I used my Blending eggs to colour the cardstock and a paint brush to cover the card with the Starlight paint before die cutting with my Holly dies by Sue Wilson

 Card one is 8x8.

The embossing folder is Diamond Snowflake from Crafters Companion. It's a pity you can't see the shimmer one the holly leaves from the Starlight paint.
 Card two is A4 half fold.

The background is coloured with the cloud inks then stamped and embossed with white powder except for 5 gold rings which is embossed in the gold powder and painted with starlight white gold.
 So I think that's everything for now, you might want to bring your anti-static bag and your heat gun to cut down on waiting time for the heat embossing.

Did you spot the mistake yet?????????

We'll find out tomorrow loll.

See you soon x
