Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well during this busy Season.
I used a Gelli plate print to create the following two Christmas cards. It's great having them in my stash to use for backgrounds. I was inspired by Karin's use of Design by Ryn's Patio Stone to create a Christmas Design that you can see here at her blog. I thought it would be fun to create ornaments for Christmas with it. I added stars which are also inspired by Karin's design.
The Gelli plate print actually has star images from a stencil but it's hard to see. I also used a self made flower stamp when making the print. I embossed Patio Stone with a blue/silver glitter embossing power on separate card stock, cut them out with a Spellbinder die and sponged with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I added stars painted with alcohol ink and a rhinestone in the center to finish it off. 'Christmas Magic' is from Impression Obsession. The ornament hangers are also from Impression Obsession's Vintage Ornament die set.
The stars are from a 'cheapo' silver tone garland strand from a Dollar
store that I cut apart and was pleased that alcohol ink will cover them. I managed to get 20 stars for a dollar. It's great fun to get a bargain :)
I had a piece of left-over background so I added a lovely die cut candle from Memory Box to create this quick card below.
Can you see stars, a snow covered hill, falling snow and trees in the background above? I coloured the die cut a little with glitter pens, mica paint, highlighted with a white Gelly Roll pen and added glitter.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Season!
