It feels like ages since I have blogged, but in reality it's only been a week. It was production week at my son's high school last week, and he had a minor lead, along with my eldest (now 2 years post high school) was the technical director for the show, so of course I had to attend every show! Then I managed to pick up a respiratory bug (thankfully not Covid) that has hit me hard the last 3 days. Bring on the sunshine I say (in Australia we are in the last month of winter).
I do have plenty of cards I 'prepared earlier' and have yet to share on my blog though.
I made this Christmas card for my subscriber tutorials last week. It features the new Perched in a Tree bundle from the Stampin' Up! July to December Mini Catalogue.
I used the dies in the bundle to create a mask, and then blended some Gray Granite ink to create the background.
I then ran the whole piece through the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (choose this folder as free gift with a $90 order during Saleabration which ends on 31st August). You can see all the Saleabration choices currently available HERE.
The branch and the bird have been water coloured using ink from my ink pad lids, and Water Painters. I used Gray Granite for the branch, and Gray Granite, Basic Gray and Blackberry Bliss for the bird.
I really loved how this Christmas card turned out. The Perched in a Tree bundle is gorgeous, and you can even the earn the dies in the bundle (called the Aspen Tree Dies) as a free gift with a $180 spend (before postage) during Saleabration which ends on August 31st. You can see all the Saleabration choices currently available HERE.
I hope you like today's card. You can find all of the products I have used in my online store, or the paper copy of the July to December Mini Catalogue. You can either order online, or direct with me via email, phone or text (you can read about three ways to shop with me HERE). When you shop online with me in Australia, and use the monthly Host Code, you also qualify for a small thank you gift mid the month after your purchase. Here's the shop link (individual product links at the end of the post), and this month's host code.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the rest of your day gives you reason to smile at some point!
