I made 4 cards this week using the Merry Christmas word Die-namic along with my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens & MFT Blueprints 29 



I used my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens to create a wash over each background to match the colours in the moon board that the fab Jenn created. 
For the warmer colours I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Gold pen and flicked across the watercolour cardstock panel, I then did the same with the other two but used the Silver Sparkle pen. 
I die cut the Merry Christmas out of Neenah cardstock and then adhered to the panels and added some Clear Sparkle pen. 
Really happy with how these turned out, you can just see the sparkle above and I wish I had created all my Christmas cards this way. 
 So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

I wanted to do something slightly different so I die cut the center circle out and used several of the stamps from Layers Of Love stamp set and then put that to one side whilst I stamped all the different flowers & leaves. These were from the Painted Thanks set and I used inks from Simon & Archival. I wanted it too look kinda messy if that makes sense and almost wild flower like...not sure if thats what I achieved
To finish off I foam mounted the panel and added some sequins. 
 So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Festive Card Series 2016- Hero Arts Snow Globe ( My Monthly Hero)

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well ? 
For all my friends who celebrate Thanksgiving a belated Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you all had a lovely day. 

For today's cards I have used the October My Monthly Hero card kit. 
These kits are amazing, they sell out FAST and contain so much amazing products which are not available to buy outside the kit. 
I have had a couple of people ask about buying the kits from outside the US, I am not in the US and did get some import charges, but it still made the kit less than $60 and for what I got I am very happy. 
For more information on the kits (I think the November Kit is still available) then click here

The kit I got comes with everything to make some fantastic snow globe style shaker cards, but I have ALOT of cards to send overseas so I am really wanting to keep mailing costs down and decided to go for a kinda snow globe look without the shaker element.


I have used Spectrum Noir Markers to create the sky, but you could use any markers or inks that you have. 

Here is a closer look at all the cards. 
 I added some extra details such as the "magic dust" coming off the Sleigh using my white gel pen.


 The sequins and seed beads are also from the same kit. 
I added a couple of touches of silver glitter jelly roll pen around some of the cards too, just to give them a little something extra. 


On this one I added some silver glitter glue to the snowman and tree. 

I Hope you like the cards, I really enjoyed creating them and I am in love with this kit and highly recommend them. 

I hope you all have an amazing weekend. 
Thank you so much for stopping by.
