Christmas Card by Susanne

Hi there!

It's all about winter and snow this month, so I have to share a winter wonderland greeting card with you today.

Here are the step by step instructions:

1. Emboss some snowflakes with chunky white embossing powder onto watercolour paper. I've already cut a cricle with a stiched frame die. To emboss this powder you have to heat it from underneath. So you will not blow away the grain.

2. Colour the background with Brusho Turquoise. The embossed parts will act as a resist.

3. Stamp the Textured Houses from Rubber Dance onto white cardstock and colour them with Brushos. I used Gamboge, Briliant Red, Turquoise and Moss Green. I sprinkled some of the powder onto my palette, added a little bit of water and used a brush for colouring.
I added some snowflakes on top, too.

 4. I die cut some trees from white cardstock and glittered them with Pearl Pigment Powders. Ink the die cuts completely with Versamark and cover them with the pigments.

5.The second tree row is cut from cardstock, that was covered with double sided tape. Expose the sticky and cover it with Irid Gold Glitter Crystals.

6. Glue all the layers together with 3d foam tape. Cut a banner for the sentiment. Cut off the excess of the circle background.

7. Mount everything to a cardbase and add a glittered sentiment together with a smaller banner. I cut the sentiment also from cardstock, which was covered with double sided tape and used Turquoise glitter on it.

Thanks for stopping by today!
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas time!

Winter Wonderland Altered Birdhouse.

Hi all 

I am back up on the blog today with a very snowy altered birdhouse.

Glue the birdhouse together and then paint with gesso or cheap white acrylic paint. Unless you want  to stamp onto the surface it is easier to glue the item together and then paint it. It you paint the parts before gluing it together then the parts might not snap together correctly.

Mix white gesso with Turquoise Brusho Crystal Powder and paint over the birdhouse. Next use a crackle paint  over the top to get the cracks. I then used Pear Aztec Eco Metallic Luster as the final layer to give it an icy shimmer.

Take a palette knife and spread Expand it over the top generously . I then sprinkled on some glass glitter but anything fine and sparkly will work too. I then heated it with the heat gun and watched the snow form.

I then painted more Pearl Eco Metallic luster over the top.

The icicles are created by using a hot glue gun and squeezing the glue onto a non stick surface. It can then be peeled off and glued to the edge of the roof.

Thank you for visiting.
