I’ve had the best time making these holiday cards
using Craftangles stencils, Craftangles white glimmer paste and Craftangles white texture paste!
Here we go…
For the first card, I used a technique called shifting..demonstrated by Tim Holtz during his new release yesterday on facebook.
It basically means that you apply colour through the stencil,
shift the stencil and then apply the second colour.
Here is a process video showing you how I created this background
And, here is a video showing you how I made the card. Im not sure about the little green leaf..but I felt the need to break the colour scheme of orange and black and brown with a pop of colour!
What do you think?
For the second card, I started by applying
white glimmer paste through the Craftangles ‘Snowflakes’ stencil,
to a white card base.
I have been using the Impression Obsession map background a lot lately and I had some scraps.
I used this map scrap to create the curved base for the little car (Lawn Fawn) to ride on.
Super cute no?
Here is a detailed image of the glimmer paste.
Here is process video showing how I used the glimmer paste and made the card.
You can also see the mistakes I’ve made and how I fixed them!
For the next card, I used the Craftangles white texture paste through the
While it was wet, I covered it with gold embossing powder.
Once dry, I heat embossed the gold..can you see the fabulous texture??!!
I just LOVE how this turned out!!
I stamped and die cut the misteltoe using Hero Arts stamps and dies
and adhered the panel to a red card base to finish the card!
Here is a photo showing the gorgeous detail of the gold embossed texture paste !
Here is a process video showing how I applied the texture paste and gold embossing powder.
For the fourth and final card,
I have used the Craftangles white texture paste which I have coloured using Tim Holtz Distress inks.
I used the Craftangles ‘Marble effect’ stencil to create this background and some Hero Arts and Impression Obsession dies to create the Christmassy foreground.
Here is a video showing you how I made this card.
You can see in the video, that I started out using very little texture paste for the first colour..but then added more and as you can see, the colours have blended beautifully.
Thanks for having the patience to go through this long post.
I hope you enjoyed these videos.
I’d love to hear what you think!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
