November Stamping Dragon Card Swap – Cards Received and Sent

Just a quick post this time to show you one card I received and one I sent.

My partner for the November Card Swap on the “Stamping Dragon Designs” group on FB was Vicky Fortier. Photos of the card I received from her, together with the card I sent her, and the details of what I used to make it, can be seen below. The theme for the November Card Swap was “CHRISTMAS”.



Novembeer Card Swap on the Stamping Dragon Designs FB group – this is the card I received from Vicky. Thank you so much Vicky.

NovemberCardSwap from Vicky 01I love the colours of this, and the image of the girl making a snow angel is such a fone image.




This next one is the card that I sent Vicky – I’ve done something a bit different and made the background all white on white with the coloured digi-stamp the only thing with colour on the card.

Ruperts Window by Janette Padley ( I printed the image onto 300gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and then coloured it in using my ProMarkers.  The colours I used were:  Lipstick Red, Ruby, Bright Green, Grass, Cyan, Walnut and Cloud Blue FlexMarker .  After colouringit in I went over the window panes with a clear Wink of Stella brush pen to give them a twinkling frosty look.  I also added some Martha Stewart glitter glue to the bottom right of each pane.  I got out my Joy machine and some of my small number of dies for this card, cutting several snowflakes and some Tattered Lace bunting to spell “Nadolig Llawen” – which is Welsh for Happy Christmas – out of linen textured cardstock.  I went over the snowflakes with the same clear Wink of Stella as I’d used on the window panes.  After cutting out the window I matted it onto white Adorable Scorable cardstock and trimmed to give a small border before attaching it to the front of a pre-cut and scored shaped card using 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape.  I thredded some white, 6 strand cotton, through the bunting and then used glue gel to attach snowflakes and bunting to the card front.)
