Then I added some snow for my truck to drive through. I used the Emboss Gloss from ClearSnap to draw a rough line along the ground. The added a layer of Stampendous Chunky White embossing powder, and heated from underneath, while it was still warm I added some powder from the Spoonful of Snow kit, this kit has a good mix of powders and glitters. Again heat from underneath.
Here I am again with another card for traveling across the miles.
For this card I have used the Stampendous Folk Tree metal stencil and the double glitter technique. I seem to be rather fond of this technique at the moment you will find step by step photographs in this post Things that go Bump here is the Dreamweaver video again too
The greeting comes from a new Clear Magic set by Jane Christmas Cheer a must have set of words with lovely Christmas wishes that will work equally well inside or outside a card. I have used my Tag Top Punch (how did I live without it?) I love that I can do the two sizes (or more) and they fit so well together. I have added a snowflake brad
I’m back again with more falling leaves, and more House-Mouse
This is Fall Float a Cling Rubber stamp from Stampendous. The card design is from a SplitCoastStampers it is a Twisted Gate Fold you will find the excellent tutorial and video in the link, but I have photographed as I went along so here goes…
The card on Splitcoast is only 4.25 inches (10cm) tall and it seemed rather small so I played about with the size. To get a nice twist it is best with a rectangular card. I worked out the ratio from the SplitCoast one, if you are interested multiply the length of your card by 0.56 to get the height that you have to cut you card too.
My card is 30cm x 17cm and that works well. First score your card in thirds. Then score diagonally from top to bottom on the right hand side, and bottom to top on the left hand side.
I couldn’t get a photograph until I held the card flat but I hope that you can see what I mean.
so when it is folded it looks like this.
Then I decorated the inside with the leaf from Fall Float and the Words come are a Woodware Just Words stamp May All Your. I have used the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor pad for all of my stamping. I have used the Woodware Mask-it sheets to hold the card to my Hotstuff mat and mask the card.
The Mask-it made it very simple.
Then I added colour around the triangles.
I cut 4 triangles to decorate the ends of the card, i am not sure what happened to the colour of this photograph. the rectangles were 8 x 15 then cut in half, giving a one cm border all around.
Then I started on the front. The panel has been punched with the Squared Corner Punch and the thread wrapped around. Start with the tale at the back and come down the front then loop behind the cut out corner and carry on around the card. I love that you don’t waste thread that is not seen.
something that I have not done for a very long time is to use my Watermark pad just to stamp with, I remember being very excited by being able to do this many years ago when the pads first came on the market. How brilliant is it that you can stamp with one ink pad to make a background without having to find an ink pad that will match? Oh simple things!
I added some plain 15mm organza ribbon and attached the panel to the card.
Then I tied on some dotty organza
The greeting is from the same stamp set and I have edged the panels with the gold finch Metalic F/x. Just run your card along a Watermark pad and brush the powder on.

You may have noticed I love houses and house stamps, I really can’t get enough of them.
this stamp comes from a set designed by Nathalie Kalbach of N*Studio, in the box you will find a cling rubber stamp, a foam stamp, and a stencil/mask. the foam stamp is great for using with paint and it is eally 2 stamps in one, the plain back can be used as a solid stamp to put colour behind the image. The possibilities are endless for cards, scrapbooks and mixed media work.
My card is a 12 x 12 sheet folded in half, I love his size of card, but envelopes are not easy!
I made two masks for the images, and stamped them with the Dylusions number stamp from the Basic Backgrounds cling rubber set.
Here you can see the mask on half of the image. (sometimes I get so interested in what I am doing that I forget to take photographs)
The words are also from the Dylusions range, this one comes from Laugh ’til You Leak. These words are perfect for art journals and scrapbook pages! But or a card to send I felt it had to be changed, and I know that I have done this before.
I then stamped it twice on black card, I stamped in white and embossed with clear powder.
My pop of colour was done with Dylusions paint and I have deliberately made it rather scribbly.
I love my card, but it was a surprise to see that Nat has used the stamps in an art journal page on her blog yesterday so pop over and see what the artist has created in her post My Art Journal Today, but don’t judge me to harshly!

I have gone with red and green again and a fat robin, very traditional.
The bird is from the Stampendous Winter Tweets there is two sets one is cling rubber stamps and the other are the dies that cut the shapes. These are really easy to use and they cut beautifully. I have stamped with Bark Crafters and the coloured with Sakura Water Colour Pencils.
I love the way that the water colour pencils adds texture to the colouring.
the holly leaves are from the same set. I have added glossy accents to the berries.
The stamp, which I have used a lot comes from an older set of Clear Magic set designed by Jane Fluffy Robin.
down the side and at the bottom of the card I have stuck some 3mm satin ribbon. All of the pieces have been attached with foam pads at various heights.
