Enchanted Reindeer in a Winter Wonderland

Hi! What are you all up to? I'm just taking a twenty minute break from my sample making to bring you all up to speed with our classes for this week, I'm so busy right now I have quite a few demo's coming up starting this Saturday then on Sunday evening I'll be driving up to Chesterfield to demo at the launch of just one of the new Crafter's Companion stores where I will get to meet some of our newly appointed  demonstrators who have only recently passed the training course (no pressure ha!)
I've been given the task of showing everyone the brand new Colorista Range that launched just last week on Hochanda and I have only just unpacked it yesterday so I'd better get a move on lol!
It's quite time consuming when you are given lots of different goodies to make your samples from as you might imagine one gets easily distracted and having enough samples is the key so it looks like I'm on overtime in the craft room this week, the word Help!!!! springs to mind.
So press the automatic button for fast forward lets go................................
Here are the cards made with the Create a card dies from last weeks demo, Louise thought it would be good to make them in class.
Card one is 7x7 square.

Here I've used the beautiful Enchanted Reindeer 5x5 Create-a-Card Die which has been cut from Kraft card and Gilding Polishes applied over the top.

The sentiment stamp is from Sara's Contemporary range, stamped in Forest Moss Distress ink then I applied my glue pen over the top before adding some Glimmer Dust.

For card two which is a 6x6, I created the background onto water colour card with my Pixie Powders Midnight Blue, Midnight Sky and Silver Dream and my trusty spray bottle of water.

It looks much nicer in real time as you don't really see the mica shining in the background.

As you might of guessed once I had die cut my Winter Wonderland I used the Pearl Gilding polish and stenciled it through the die, it is such a lovely effect onto plain white cardstock.

The Christmas sentiment is a die from Sara's Contemporary range as is the small snowflake onto of the bow.

I have used a small 6x6 embossing folder from my stash to make the layer behind the main image panel.
I have also applied the Pearl Gilding polish to this.

Still trying to decide whether or not to add some ribbon to the Reindeer card or maybe just some gems.

Nice and simple for a change, a little bit of die cutting for a stunning effect to your Christmas cards.

See you soon x
