Our Feature Artist is back..





Hi to all.

This is my second guest spot for Jo.

As Christmas approaches we are all very busy. So I thought that I would do some very simple and time saving Christmas cards. I have once again used the kaisercraft Holy Night papers.
For the first one I have embossed the background with dots and then I have just used the  sticker sheet and formed the phrases and words into a christmas tree shape, a sticker star on the top and a smaller word on the bottom to make the base. Between the tree and the base I have added a strip of ribbon and some diamentes to give a nice contrast. I have then added a few diamentes to the edgs of the phrases and one on the star and so .....Oh Christmas tree  Oh Christmas Tree...( you can sing the rest)








This is such an easy and versatile card that you could adapt it to anything. Maybe strips of Washi tape or scraps of paper and the best of all is that you can put it together quickly and the finished product looks great.

Then for the second card I have once again used the sticker sheet. This is such a versatile sheet and available from Jo's shop. I have used a christmas red card base and then I have once again embossed a white background with a spot embossing folder. I have then used the branch sticker and trimmed them into pieces and formed a wreath on the embossed white card stock. I have then popped a star from the same sticker sheet and added a red diamente to the centre for a little bit of christmas bling. Same sticker sheet again... I told you it was versatile.....and I have taken a phrase and mounted it on dimensional tape to give it a bit of impact and put it at the bottom of the card. Finally I have used a flower punch and a scrap of red paper and put some flowers around the the inside of the wreath. You could put anything here to make it your own....stars, bling or any thing with a christmas theme. And in the blink of an eye there you have another card.




My third and final card has more of a traditional theme.
I have used Kaisercard in latte as the base for my card. I then cut a piece from the Angels music sheet just marginally smaller than the card base so that it would leave a border  and inked all edges and then attached the music sheet to the card. I chose two pieces from the die cuts and attached to the card. There are so many different pieces to select fromthat you could make a series of cards and they would all be different. I then took a star from that fabulous sticker sheet and attached it to the top left.. you know the story.. the star shining on high. I added diamentes to one tag and to the centre of the star. Done. How easy was that.( The yellow beneath the star is actually some overspray from another project but I thought it added effect so I left it there)

 



Now that I have saved you a lot of time on your christmas cards you can now do all that extra baking in the kitchen. Shortbread, mince pies, Christmas cake... Yummo!  It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas.

Cheers and Happy Scrapping.
Heather Bensley.
