I've done both cards today with the 'Marker to Stamp' Technique. There's a little explanation further down on how to do this. This technique really adds more life to your images, and is fun and easy!
Here's # 5 Christmas Card.
I have really loved creating with this stamp set "White Christmas", and I've just received my All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments and Washi Tape, so couldn't wait to include them!
- I've used 'Marker to Stamp' Technique on the Trees, which is simply colouring your image with Stampin' Write Markers directly onto the stamp. For full details, type 'Marker to Stamp Technique' in my search box and it will come up. Ive used Soft Suede for the Trunks, Wild Wasabi for Tree Branches, and Soft Sky on the Ice Mound.
- I've sponged Pool Party on the Snow Mound and softly throughout the background. Then sponged So Saffron through the trees as if sunlight is shinning through them.
- I've used my Two-Way Glue Pen to adhere the Glitter.
- I stamp the Polar Bear in Sky Blue and then cut out with my Paper Snips.
- I adhered the Snowflake Embellishment with a Glue Dot. These are great, strong and multi uses, like for Bows.

Here's # 5 Non-Christmas Card.Well, I'm a flower girl, so there's no denying that this stamp was a must have for me! I love it!
I also love the Sequins! They give a magicness (don't know if that's a word - magicness!) to the card and bring it to life. This card was quite quick to create too!
I couldn't decide whether to keep the Butterfly in or not, so will show you both cards. Which one do you like best - With or Without Butterfly? Just leave your answer in the Comments Box at the end of this post.
- I glued the Sequins down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue - To do this, put a small spot of glue on the card stock, then holding the sequin with tweezers, lay it on the glue. Also holding Stampin' Up! Adhesive Pearl with tweezers, place in the centre of the sequin.
- To frame the Greeting, punch Pear Pizzazz Card Stock with Scallop Oval, cut in half long ways, adhere both half's with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
