Merry moose card

Hello again,

Another Christmas card, with Tim Holtz products.
First time I saw the Merry moose die I knew I was going to buy it. He is so cool.

I started to make the background with Distress oxide in Stormy sky and Chipped Sapphire. I cut out a mask with a round die for the moon and masked it off. Then when I was ready with the sky I took away the note and used the negative diecut as a mask and used Mustard seed and Wild honey Distress oxides. Spritzed the two colors with water for some more interest. Then I used one of Tim´s stencils for the snowflakes and used opaque texture paste and put some Rock Candy glitter on it before it dried.

I handcut the snowdrifts and used glossy accents and clear rock candy glitter on them.

I diecut the trees and the moose from Kraft cardstock that I have sanded for the distressed look. On the trees I also used Glossy accents and Clear rock candy glitter. A great tip I learned from the talented Paula Cheney in a class at the very nice shop Whimsodoodle in St. Petersburg Florida on my vacation. It looks like frosty trees! 

I distressed the edges of the moose with Walnut stain Distress ink.

I stamped the texts with two different stampsets, CMS323 Holiday postmarks and CMS357 Festive overlay, embossed with black embossingpowder.

The "Happy new year" stamp is matted on a tree plank piece which are diecut with the Planks die and embossed with the 3D embossing folder for that woodplank look, colored with different colors from Distress oxides. 

The card is matted on a panel from the Tidings Design paper stack. 

Thanks for visiting and Merry Christmas!


Deer Christmas card

Hello and welcome,

I want to share a Christmas card that I´ve made. I have been away on vacation and had the possibility to find some new Tim Holtz products. I have used some of them on this card.
I started with the background and used old paper Distress Oxide on Distress Heavystock. Then I stamped CMS360 Inventor 6 and gold embossing powder. I also stamped the background with he text stamp from CMS328 Entomolgy. After that I used Distress ink in Walnut stain and gold foil on the edges. I matted that card with two different Design paper-Tidings panels. 

The smaller panels are Kraft stock metallic, Designer paper-Tidings and then I made a red panel with different colors of Distress ink and embossed the "Paramount" stamp from CMS066 Mini Holidays set with white embossing powder. I like that stamp a lot.

I die cut the deer with Tim´s new die Cool Yule, from Kraft cardstock and Designpaper-Tidings.
The glasses are diecut from Kraft metallic paper in gold. I used Grit paste as snow on the deer´s head, antlers and scarf.

GOD JUL is Swedish and means Merry Christamas. I used the Deco die from Tim Holtz Sizzix for these letters. I´ve wanted this die a very long time and now it has been given to me buy my husband :) I love that font!

The small black "air mail" stamps are from CMS323 Holiday postmarks.

I also used Tim Holtz splatter brush and white acrylic paint to get the "snowy effect" on the background aand on the letters.

I finished the card off with some black hemp thread and an ideaology Adornments Christmas. Also a hex fastener in the top right corner.

I used some gold acrylic paint to change color on the Ideaology pieces.

I mounted this card on a black cardpanel and distressed the edges with Picket fence Distress ink.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
