I have not been able to commit as much time to crafting as usual but I have managed to make my first Christmas card using a rather unusual stamp set from AALL & Create
This is a relatively short post for me, I don't have many step-outs to share..
I used a 5" x 5" card base, painted a topper and used Stencil #6 to add some interest. I also cut a circle frame to fit the topper. I really wanted to create a shaker card but it wasn't happening for me...
I created some 'holly' using a leaf from Louise Nelson's stamp set #133 and I used Olga Heldwein's lovely duck stamp from set #135. I coloured all of the pieces with watercolour paints. I used a hand drawn hat for the duck.
Note: Since making this card Olga has added some hand drawn hats to the Facebook AALL & Create Fanatics group that you are free to use in your projects.
Once the card was assembled I added some little snowballs and added some snow to the sky. I also added a computer generated sentiment.
I did finally manage to create a shaker card today using the same elements as above, but used another stencil - #39, my favourite by Autour de Mwa. These cards will, I think, be ideal for the children in the family.
You can find all of the stamps and stencils I used HERE
where you will also find a list of world-wide stockists.
Also, if you visit the AALL & Create website and/or Facebook page, you will also see a fabulous new release of stamps and stencils from this talented group of designers - they are pretty amazing and just in time to buy some for Christmas gifts.....
Thanks for your visit, I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas project.
Hugs, Anne xx
