Stained Glass Christmas Angel :D


A pair of Stained Glass Angel Christmas cards using the fab new stamp sets from CraftStash and Pretty Quick :D These are such gorgeous designs, and a lot of them are also available in die form for those of you who prefer die-cutting rather than stamping :D I've linked to the Christmas Angel die below too :D I wanted to show a couple of different techniques for colouring in this stunning angel, so I used heat embossing and Pixie Powder Watercolour for one, and Alcohol marker colouring for the other :D These stamp sets are perfectly designed so that you have everything you need for a card straight away, you get a couple of larger sentiments you can pick from to use on the outside of your card, and they've also included a kind of verse sentiment for you to stamp on the inside too :D Hope you liked the card :D

It's Your Big Day Tonic September Craft Kit :D



A couple of quickish washy Nuvo mousse cards using the Tonic September Craft Kit :D I love this colour of Nuvo mousse, I don't have this one, so I've been thoroughly enjoying playing with it :D And I thought this little hat image paired with the 'it's your big day' sentiment would make quite a nice masculine wedding card, so I kept the colours simple, mixing in the gold mousse with some grey Nuvo Creative Pens for the hat :D I hope you liked this simple design :D This kit is such a fantastic way to try lots of different Tonic products too, as you get a wide variety of bits and pieces to play with :D :D :D
