Black Cat in the Snow

A Christmas Carol – Away in a manger

Image

This CAS card was made using Humphrey’s Corner decoupage from Crafter’s companion.   The card was inspired by the carol Away in a manger as Humphrey has made a lovely painting of a stable scene.  All the stash was bought last Christmas – I’m gradually getting through it!!

Creative Moments DT card

This week’s theme is embossing, dry or heat.  I have made one card using a digistamp from Doodle Garden; it was coloured with Promarkers and then I used a Versamarker pen to heat emboss the snowflake.   I made it into a thank you card using a sentiment from Hunkydory.

The second card is made using a Little Claire’s stamp, ‘the owl tree’.  I used Versa Colour brown to stamp the image onto pearlescent card, then Papermania Champagne  gold embossing powder, which when combined give the lovely golden bronze colour.
