Five Christmas cards for August!!!!


Good morning!

Here I am with my offering of my five Christmas cards for August!

I've taken some photo's of them in pairs and closer for you:




This a layering technique that I saw on the television a few weeks ago and thought it was really nice especially when you use a tree stamp as it can make one tree stamp turn in to a complete forest!!

On to a distress ink background I started to stamp my first trees ( I think this is a Clarity Stamp tree) in a very pale colour, I almost couldn't see them on the paper.  I then went on with a slightly darker blue, a third darker blue and then one in a bold colour which I covered in clear embossing powder too so that it stood out from all the rest.

Added some snowflakes and the sentiments.

Didn't take that long to produce these and I loved it as it was so inky!!!

So, new years resolution - month 8 mission complete!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Leanne xx

  1. These are really pretty Leanne and well done you for getting one with your Christmas cards, I so struggle getting them done early as I am usually fed up with them by the time TV have had their summertime Christmas.

  2. I love these cards too Leanne and it's a great technique. I really like the shadowing effect that you've achieved with this lovely tree stamp, lovely colours too. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
