11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

The batch of cards I’ve got to show you today are a bit of an assortment that I will put into a big pack where customers can choose single cards for £1 each.

What I Used

For the first card I stamped in FlitterGlu before adding guilding flakes to it once it was tacky.  I am very impressed with how sharp the image is once I rubbed off the excess flakes.  It was then trimmed and attached to matting and layering on a card.

For the other cards in this batch I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection.  I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items.  Each card has either a plain and printed insert or an insert from the collection that matches the outside of the card.

Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Happy Christmas.

9th Batch Of Christmas Cards – Welsh Cards

9th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Was expecting a visit from the doctor to see my mother so I couldn’t go back to bed to rest.  I therefore tacked makeing some more Welsh and English Christmas cards.  I wasn’t up to doing stamping and colouring so I went back to the Hunkydory collection for components to make all the cards.  In the end I had around 18 cards made.  6 Welsh cards were put together into one pack (these are what I have to show you today), 6 English were put together into another pack (keep an eye out for a post showing them in a couple of days once I finish cropping the photos and editing the blog post), and the rest were some of each that I’ve put into the big pack where people can choose individual cards from to suit their needs.

What I Used

For all six cards I’ve got to show you today I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection. I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items. Each card has an insert that matches the cardstock I used to make the base card from the collection.

As well as working on posts for the rest of the cards I made the same day as these, I still need to make some more Christmas cards, and I have other projects on the go as well, so keep an eye out for more posts over the next few days.

8th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Welsh Cards

6th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today’s sellection of Christmas Cards again show a collection of 6 cards I put together into a pack for selling at our Chapel, as well as one more dimensional card that I packed as an individual card for selling – it is more dimensional and ornate and I charge a little more for this type of card as they take longer to make and use up more material.

I did a couple of different shaped cards this time.  Some have a matching insert from the collection while others have a plain insert with just a printed greeting.

I just went through the collection, pulled out pieces that went together, cut and constructed.

7th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Guilded Images

Another Batch Of Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today my makes feature a few of the Chocolate Baroque Cristmas stamps I was tempted by a few weeks ago.

If you like Chocolate Baroque stamps, or stamping and mixed media in general, you may like to note in your diaries that Lesley from Chocolate Baroque will be doing her next Craftalon on Hochanda on 17th November. You can find details of the kit available for the craftalong – here!

I went for glue and guilding flakes again this time, like the ones I showed you in a previous post – here!

What I Did

I chose three of the stamps from the Chocolate Baroque collection I’d bought and stamped them several times onto stamping card using FliterGlu.

I then put on guilding flakes, rubbed it on and rubbed it off.

Some of the images I fully coloured, some partialy coloured, and some didn’t colour at all.

I cut them out in different ways.  Some as rectangular panels, some directly round the picture and one angel leaving a round around the head area but cutting directly to the line around the bottom.

After this I scored and folded cardstock to make the base card as well cutting out an assortment of matting and layering pieces.

Everything was put together using fingerlift tape as I wanted to make a pack of flat cards for easy posting.

I finished off by sticking in the insert and putting on the “Nadolig Llawen” (Welsh for Happy Christmas) peeloff greeting.

What I Used
The Finished Cards

Pack of 6 cards.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

Butterfly Card And More

Butterfly Card and More

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today my make features a butterfly stamp by Pete Simpson of Artisan Designs UK.  If you are at the Stamperama event in Harrogate on the 9th November, Pete will be demonstrating on the Chocolate Baroque stand. He will have his Butterflies And More collection available for sale as well.

You may not know that Pete had his stamps manufactured by the people at Chocolate Baroque, so they are of excellent quality.

The second card was also made using an Artisan Design Stamp.

What I Did

I used my stamping press to stamp out all the images onto stamping card and then coloured them in using Prism Craft Markers.

The main images were cut as straight edged toppers and their corners rounded with a punch.  The required backgrounds were also cut out as straighted edged panels.  The stamped floral background piece was cut out to the edge.

I scored the two main pieces of cardstock and folded them to make landscape cards before sticking on my prepared pieces.  I used fingerlift tape throughout for these projects as I wanted them completely flat for posting.

I finished off by putting a peeloff greeting on the front and a plain insert inside.

What I Used
The Finished Cards

I was having problems getting good photos of these cards to show the true colours without them looking washed out, so, although they have no dimension, I have taken an angled photo as well as a straight on one of both cards.  I still don’t think they look true to colour on my screen, but don’t feel up to getting out my light box to re-take the photos again.

6th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Guilded Images

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Guilded Images On Christmas Cards

I’m still working on my batches of Christmas cards made using items from the Hunkydory Collection I bought, but I fancied haveing a bit of a change of style the middle of the week and decided on some stamping and then guilding the stamped image.

I’m calling this post the “6th Batch” but in reality it is only 2 cards.  Having had a lingering virus for quite some time, I now have a secondary infection in my ear makeing me dizzy and nauseous, so did nothing for a couple of days (even had to have nephew go out and feed my fish and get clothes cleaner had put in the machine out).  The antibiotics are working thankfully, so I did spend an hour or so just sitting by the kitchen table to stamp half a dozen images and guild them, but only managed to put two together into cards later on after a rest.

I needed to make a Christmas Card for a challenge on the Artisan Design Fan Group over on Facebook – the group is called Create with Artisan Design if you are interested in joining.  So wanted to challenge myself to make a simple Christmas card without having any Artisan Design Christmas stamps.

Then, the second card.  I had seen an angel stamp I loved on somebody’s card a month or more ago.  They said the stamp was by Chocolate Baroque, so off I went to the site to have a look whether they still sold it.  They did – but while I was there I saw that they did some other lovely Christmas stamps as well.  Couldn’t afford every one I liked – but in the end decided on a set of 5.  Wps!

What I Did

Card 1

For the Christmas card with no Christmas stamps I started with a fern stamp and a couple of leaf stamps from Artisan Design UK.  All were stamped using flitter glue and guilded.  I stamped the fern three times, moving the paper about a mm en each direction.  This gave the stamped image a fuller look and made it look more like a tree.  I stamped the leaves out five times each.

The “tree” was cut out as a rectangle and a line scored 0.5cm in from each side as an embossed line.  This was matted onto a piece of red cardstock and trimmed to leave a small border.

I stuck a large, clear, faux gem to the top of the “tree” and a lot of medium sized faux gems of different colours all over it.

I scored and folded in half a sheet of hammered cardstock and stuck the matted image on with foam tape.

I took a small piece of torn cardstock, about the size of a 5p piece, and put a blob of glue gel in the centre.  I then trimmed the stamens to be shorter and pushed them into the centre of the glue before giving the leaves some shape and pusing them in in two rows, the largest outside and the smallest in between the largest and the stamens.  I left the glue set on this before I glued it to the card front.  The card was finished off with a printed insert and a peel-off on the front.

Card 2

For this card I chose the Rejoice angel from Chocolate Baroque.  Again I stamped in flitter glue and guilded.  I cut around the angel to make a rectangular topper then decided to make it a little different and cut of the top portion right up to the edge of the stamped image.  I put a “shaddow” around the outside edge of the angel using two shades of Prism Craft Markers.

I matted this topper onto a piece of Artisan Design paper.  This matted topper was put onto a layer of white lightweight cardstock before once again being trimmed and matted onto the second half of the same piece of Artisan Design paper, but this time with the paper in the opposite direction to the way I’d put it directly under the angel.

I scored and folded in half a sheet of hammered cardstock and stuck the matted topper directly to the card front.

I then stuck a lot of tiny AB faux gems on the paper mat behind the angel’s head and wings.

This card was finished off with a peel-off greeting on the front and a printed insert on the inside.

What I Used
Photos Of The Two Cards

This is the one made with the fern and leaves stamps.

I’ve taken photos from several different angles to try and get the shine on the poinsettia, tree, and lights to show.

And this is the second card made using the angel stamp.

Again I’ve taken several photos to try and get the shine to show.

I’m impressed that even the very fine lines of the facial features have been picked up when stamped in glue and guilded.

.

I have stamped out a few more of the Chocolate Baroque images and guilded them the same time as I did the images for these two cards, so hopefully I will have them made up into simple cards to show you before long.

Assorted Cards

Assorted Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

I think that the cards I’ve got to show you today are the last of the ones I put into a box for our carers boss.  It is a bit of a mix of English and Welsh, Birthday and Sympathy.

Card 1

A Polyanna Pickering image from Creative Crafting World was used as a topper, and an insert from the same collection was cut in half to use as a backing paper on the front and as an insert.

Fingerlift Tape was used to attach background to an A5 lanscape white card, while foam tape was used to attach the topper to the card.

Again I used fingerlift tape to attach the insert.  Peeloff greetings were put on the outside and inside.

Card 2

This card was also made using items from a Pollyanna Pickering collection.  A kingfisher topper was used and an insert was used for the outside and the inside as well as some background paper.  I used a paper punch to round some corners.

I kept the English insert in this card so chose a matching greeting for the front.

Card 3

This card – Yn Meddwl Amdanoch Gyda Chydymdeimlad (Welsh for “Thinking Of You With Sympathy”) – written inside and out, was made by printing the outside greeting out as a panel with a grey frame.  After cutting it out a little outside the grey frame and rounding the corners it was mounted onto black cardstock which again had its corners rounded.  This was then stuck to the card front.

The flowers from my stash were then stuck directly to the card front.  These flowers came with the little faux gem centres so nothing else was done to the card other than sticking in the insert.

Card 4

The base card is a landscape orientation Pearlescent white cardstock that was scored, folded in half, and the corners rounded with a punch and set in landscape orientation.

The background is a piece of shaving foam marbling that I did a while ago. (I do have a half written blog post about the session of shaving foam marbling my nephews and I did, but I still need to finish this off)

I cut a panel to the required size and rounded its corners.  I punched out small flowers with a small Fleurs flower punch, making sure to keep the punches even down one side to cut a strip and use as a border across the card.  I cut a strip of white a little wider than the punched border.  I also cut a panel of white to use as a greetings panel, onto which I put the Penblwydd Hapus (Welsh for Happy Birthday).  I used a black fineliner to go around some of the pieces in a dashed line.

I punched the same flowers in white that I stuck the coloured flower layers on, off set, using Bookbinding Glue.  I used Fingerlift Tape and foam tape to attach the base/background layer, white ribbon strip and greetings panel.  I used the Bookbinding Glue to attach the flower ribbon strip and each of the flowers.  I then added tiny Sticky Backed Faux Gems to the flower centres.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

Some More Welsh Sympathy Cards

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Rhagor o Gardiau Cydymdeimlad
More Welsh Sympathy Cards

As I said in a previous post, I have been asked to make some birthday and sympathy cards.  Today I have a sellection of Welsh sympathy cards to show you.

I have tried to make them in a variety of styles so that the person who wants them has a choice to pick from.  Religious, floral, prayer, the light of a candle.  Different people just like different things, especially on Sympathy cards

Today’s cards are made using items from the Kanban Loving Memories collection.

Card 1

The base card for this one was made using pale grey cardstock. The darker grey mat behind the image also came from the same Core Collection “Midnight Skies” coloured cardstock.

The foiled cardstock came from the Kanban collection.

The topper is one of the greetings stack that I’ve cut the greeting off the bottom.

A simple peeloff and a printed insert finished the card off.

Card 2

The base card was scored and folded sheet of cardstock from the collection as was the topper  I used some of the grey cardstock from the “Midnight Skies” cardstock as matting and layering and again added a peeloff and a printed insert.

While Fingerlift Tape was used to attach topper and greetings panel to the grey mat, Foam Tape was used to attach the matted items to the card front.

Card 3

I again used a grey cardstock from the “midnight” pack of cardstock as the base card and for the black mat behind the topper.  I used a corner punch to round the corners.  The topper and first mat came from the Kanban collection.  The topper was cut down to remove the greeting.

Again I used fingerlift tape for some of the layers and foam tape to attach the matted topper to the card front.  “Gair o Gysur” is Welsh for a “A Word of Comfort”.

Card 4

This card was made in a similar way to the previous one.  This time I put the greeting on a matted panel rather than directly onto the card front.

Like all the cards I attached a printed greeting inside.

.

I still have a few more cards to show you from this batch, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
