Surprise!! Two posts in one week!
I have been really busy making things for the Craft Fair I am doing at the end of the month in Sevenoaks, Kent. Christmas gift boxes, with gifts inside, clocks, treasure boxes, Christmas door hangers and of course, loads of Christmas cards, to name but a few.
This card is using James the Bear from Lili Of The Valley. It was one from the latest release of their Christmas stamps.
I first sprayed the card blank and the piece of card for the topper, with 'Tattered Angels' Gold Glimmer Mist, Mica Spray. I also stamped a bit of a snowflake in each corner, with gold Brilliance Ink.
The backing paper is from last year, so have no idea where I got it! I stamped James with the Christmas Tree, using Versafine Grey Ink Pad. I then coloured him with Distress Inks, my favourite product. For the fur on his hat and the snow on the tree, I used Americana Acrylic dimensional writer. Whilst it was still wet, I added a mixture of fine Crystal glitter and white Flock, which gave it a fluffy feel.
The sentiment is a Hobby Arts stamp I bought from The Craft Barn. I stamped it with InigoBlu Flitter Glue and then applied gold Mega Flakes to the glue. I then matted this onto a piece of silk finish gold Mirri Board.
I cut out James, so I could 3D him onto the piece of card, alongside the sentiment. I used Pinflair Gel to do this and then added some Stickles to the star and the baubles.
I hope you like little James and if you do, you should visit LOTV for even more James the Bear stamps. I do have a couple more!!
