Happy New Year!
I suspect you are all busy celebrating 2018 and to begin the New Year I have a couple of cards to share made using the CrafTangles Bearing Gifts stamp set to show how versatile it can be for those projects you need to make throughout winter.
I have to admit to loving the background I created on this one – I simply used 3 co-ordinating colours of Distress Inks through the wonderful CrafTangles Starry BG stencil. For the lettering and borders I used Lawn Fawn dies and stamps.
I stamped the bear image and coloured in with my Zig Clean Color Brush pens adding some glitter stars as I do love a bit of bling!
My second card I made with a friend in mind whose birthday happens to be today so she gets a double celebration!
The images from the stamp set are so cute and I decided to use this one for a birthday card. It shows how the stamp set doesn’t have to be used for Christmas as both the images and sentiments lend themselves to so well to winter themed cards.
I coloured and cut out the image again adding it to die cut stitched hills with the sentiment. I used a cloud embossing folder for the background on pink card. The Birthday Wishes is from the Everyday Sentiments CrafTangles set. and I added it to a die cut cloud which I drew around. To embellish I simply added some glitter gems and washi tape.
Please do share some love as I love reading your comments. All that remains is for me to wish you a happy, healthy, peaceful and successful New Year!
See you again soon!
