Napkin Art Christmas Plaque

Good morning all, I hope Wednesday is treating you well.   A bit of a change today for post number 11.  It's a Christmas project but it isn't a card.   I've had a go at napkin art for this one.

This project started out as a humble paper napkin and a piece of MDF.
I painted the MDF plaque with white acrylic paint
I then separated the layers of the paper napkin and then attached the lop layer to my MDF using Viva Decor Servietten-Technik Kleber+Lack (which roughly translates to napkins technique glue & varnish).
I pained a wooden reindeer with white paint and then a layer grey chalk paint and then sanded it to give it a distressed look.
The two layer chipboard sentiment is from Make it Crafty.  The bottom layer is painted with white acrylic paint and the top layer is covered with black embossing powder.
Then just a sprinkling of Crushed Ice Crystals across the bottom.

I hope you like my winter plaque.   Thanks for taking the time to visit, see you tomorrow for day twelve x

Lili of the Valley Snowy Robins Christmas Card

Good morning.  I have another festive card to share.  Day 10 is here only another 14 posts to Christmas.

For today's card I have used 'Snowy Robins' digi stamp from LOTV coloured with copics.
The DP's are from the Docrafts Papermania Christmas in the Country paper pack.
I printed the image quite large so not really room on a 6 x 6 card for much else so just added an embossed sentiment (from the My Favorite Things 'Seasons Tweetings' stamp set) a few snowflakes with a Fiery Volcano Nuvo Stone Drop in the centre and some Icicle Stickles onto the image.

That's it for today, thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  I'll see you tomorrow x

Gnome Trio Christmas Card

Good morning.   I hope you are having a good day where ever you are.  It's a bit on the windy side here today but at least it's not raining for a change.

I feel I achieved a lot yesterday.  I think all of my Christmas cards are done, I just need to do a final check, I have all my Christmas presents they just need wrapping, I've never been so organised.

Today's post is another Christmas card.

For this card I have used the Gnome Bundle svg file from Lori Whitlock cut using the scan'n'cut.
The hats are cut from the First Edition Christmas Wishes paper pack.
The background DP is from the DoCrafts Forever Friends Kraft Notes paper pack.
The Merry sentiment is a two layer chipboard from Make It Crafty.  I coloured the bottom layer with a N5 copic pen and the top layer is covered with white embossing powder.
The Christmas sentiment is from the Neat & Tangled Very Merry Stamp set

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and I'll be back tomorrow for day 10 x
