Time for another Vera Lane Studio post today. I have a Christmas card featuring two recently released sets called Just Jump and Merry. The little girl reminded me of the excitement of youngsters on Christmas morning.
For today's AALL & Create project I have made a dust jacket to pop over the little memo books that I use. I decided to use some of Tracy Evans' beautiful nature inspired stamp sets along with background stamps and stencils from Autour de Mwa and Janet Klein.
This is what it looks like. It has two flaps that fold inside the book. The back one can be used as a bookmark.
This is what it looks like on the memo book. I added bull dog clips to secure the jacket, but it could easily be secured with reposition tape as well.
How it was made:I started with a piece of A4 300gsm card and trimmed it to the length of the memo book. I smooshed Distress Oxides to replicate sky and land, then used stencils to stamp patterns.
This is an older set, but one that I still love. The boy and girl elves are so cute. They come with two different trees and a sentiment.
I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. The coins were smooshed into Distress Oxides in shades of blue and Black Soot. I die cut a strip of card to represent the snow drifts and covered them with mica flakes. White splatters represent falling snow and some dots of glitter were also applied. The elves were popped on foam tape for a little dimension.
Over at the Gecko Galz Challenge blog ,the November theme is White Christmas, so I thought I would continue with that theme for my DT day.
I have made a selection of cards using images from Gnome for the Holidays. The images all have a lovely vintage vibe.
The first one here depicts some cute little gnomes skating in the snow,. Look at the sledge made from a nut shell - how adorable. I decided to make a shaker card, using silver sequins as snow.
In this close up photograph you can see the flecks of glitter I applied over the falling snow. The shaker box was built up by using several pieces of die cut card.
The gnome has glossy accents on his cold nose and also on his lantern.
I added a silver glitter, die cut tree and two kraft card die cut deer to replicate those in the image. I also added glitter to the snowflakes and a banner of silver snowflakes along the top edge.
