Hello there it is my Turn (Terry) to show you how you can easily make a beautiful Christmas card.

I started by editing a piece of cardstock with 4 colors of acrylic paint with my brayer. I wanted to use green, orange, purple and white, but to my surprise the main color really turned purple with some white. If you look closely you can still see some green through it but the orange color has really disappeared hahah

And here from upclose so you can see the bits of green I thought I would continue with purple and white colors, I love the color purple so no worries at all....

Of course only purple and white paint in the background becomes a bit dull, so I thought I'd have to take out the Texture Galore stamp set and stamp it on the card with the Distress ink here and there. 

And what I did afterwards, I punched the Craft Die Fancy Bauble and glued it to the card. When it was a bit dry......


 I treated the Baubles with Crackle to give it a glassy look. If you look closely on the picture you can see that it has this glassy look. I still had the idea that it was not finished on the background so I stamped a little star all over my card with the Purple Distress Ink and also I used the Doodle Borderstamp set all around my card and I even could hang up my Baubles how about that....those stamps are so versatile...I think everyone has that feeling sometimes when you are working on your project and you look at your background that you think it  is not "full" enough hihih

And with the Gnome 25 December stamp set stamped on my Christmas Card it was finished....I am pretty pleased about it. I hope I have been able to give you some inspiration again and have shown that you can make a pretty Christmas Card with not too many stamps or dies.  Now of course I am very curious what you will make with acrylic paint, stamps and distress ink.

And I have played with these amazing products:

Hi There it is my turn (Terry) to post a little tutorial on the 

Today I have a Christmas Card covered with Snowflakes for you......

I started out with 3 different colors of blue, This time I made a Christmas card with blue Snowflakes instead of White, something else right? So did you ever make Blue Snowflakes instead of the traditional white ones? This time I opted for a simple card that can be made quickly. That's very nice if you started making Christmas cards late. 

This time I worked with 2 different stencils in the background. Distress ink works perfectly with the Polkadoodles stencils. The first one I used is the Snowflake Border Stencil  . 
The different sizes of snowflakes work very well for this card, I can say that I am pretty pleased with it. Sure hope that you like it too though.

...I stamped the tiny star with the Holly Flourish Stampset

And to finish my card I stamped the Sentiment from the  There's Snowplace like Home stamp set from on my Christmas Card. Before I glued it onto my card I placed a dark blue cardstock underneith so the Sentiment would pop out of the card....and I think it does....what do you think?? Did it work out? Or not.....Please tell me all about it oke ...

So this was my inspirational Tutorial for your inspiration, offcourse I cannot wait untill you show what you have made. 

Thank you so much and please show you Christmas cards, I can't hardly wait....

Thank you for your time and have fun Crafting...

Hi there, crafters out there.....did you know.....that we

 Have a NEW challenge over at the 

 We Love To Create Challenge Blog

I have made a Christmas Card for your inspiration. I thought you could use some more inspiration for making your Cards for this Christmas. Have fun......I know I did....

I started out wtih a piece of cardstock and colored it with Distress Inks and when it was dry to lighten my paper up a bit I, played with Acrylic Paint and Gesso. I thought the color came out just the way I wanted it to be, light with a bit of purple in there.....What I did next was, I looked at the Christmas stampsets that had different shapes and sizes snowflakes in it. It took me about 6 different Christmas Stampsets to get the ones that I wanted to stamp on my Card. So I played with different colors purple and with differents sizes and shapes and stamped them randomly on my background. Untill I was finished and happy with the result. 

So after I was finished stamping and glueing my background on another piece of cardstock I had to choose again......this time I had to choose if I wanted the Christmas sentiment to be on a piece of cardstock and then onto the card OR......I would glue the Sentiment without cardstock on the card....Sometimes it is very difficult to choose and if you have doubts you simply do it twice, hahaha that is my motto. So I just cut out the Christmas sentiment twice with the Dies and put them 1 on 1 on the card and looked at what I thought was nicer. So .... I chose only the text, without the cardstock

So like this .... I made the letters a bit shiny by going over them with the Glitterpen. You can't see it on the picture I am afraid but trust me in "real" life the letters have a shiny feel over it. 

So this is my finished card for this month's challenge, I sure hope you like it and hopefully I can give you some inspiration for making your own Christmas Cards, It would be great if you could show it I am curious what you are going to make.
