Hi All, I have been absolutely been loving the new Jolly Holiday release and particularly how lovely the Jolly Trees stampset. This stampset has been so versatile and awesome for layering ink colours. For today I have done a quick and simple card of straight stamping with Eucalyptus and Green Tea ink. For the Christmas centre tree I have heat embossed with Metallic Rich Gold embossing powder and die cut out and placed on Cranberry Fizz ink panel and cut closely around to foam mount on.
I place and stamped the trees on the bottom of the slimline panel. Cut a panel of pattern paper and mount on a Cranberry Fizz ink blended panel. Die cut the new Merry Christmas word die three times. Press the top word die into the cranberry ink and adhere all down on the pattern paper strip.
Place the whole card panel on a navy slimline card panel.

Now onto my card creations. Today, I have made 3 cards using a variation of WOW! Embossing Powder products – Sparkles, Embossing Glitters and straight-up super fine powders. I have used the same stampset from Gerda Steiner Designs – Carol Puppies Stampset and watercoloured them in with the Altenew paint pan pallet.
I first stamped the images using my MISTI with Versafine Onyx black ink which I then watercoloured the images in. I set aside to dry then I restamped the image over the top of the watercolour images to get a good crisp black image over the top.
For the first card I used Coconut Ice embossing glitter on the die-cut diagonal frame by pressing the clear ultra slow drying ink direct on the diecut. It is hard to capture the embossing glitter in a photo but it really makes for a fabulous die glitter cardstock panel. The sentiment has been heat embossed with Angel Eyes from the Ferryman Trios set.
Second card I have heat embossed a scalloped circle die cut with Salsa embossing glitter. I have also roughly swiped the pennant edge with ultra slow drying ink and poured neptune embossing glitter.
For the last card I have used the Flamingo Sparkles and created my own paste with Texture Gloss paste. Using a plastic spatula I have mixed the sparkles and texture paste and spread it like butter over a poinsettia stencil.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card creations for the hop.

But first here are a couple of my cards for the hop.
For the Angel wings dies card I have done some really light ink blending with some distress oxide inks. The card on the left I have used Black soot and Hickory Smoke oxide inks and the card on the right I have used Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar. The key to get a smooth inkblending I have used the make up blending brushes. To get the glittery wings I have used Iced Silver & Aladdin Embossing Glitter.
Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post where I have made a waterfall card with the brand new Merry Critters stampset from Kat Scrappiness.
I have copic coloured each of these little cuties in. My paper of choice is from Pinkfresh Oh Joy 6″ x 6″ pack.
The main mechanism is the waterfall rectangle. It measures 2″ x 8″ and scored at 2″, 2 1/2″, 3″ & 3 1/2″.
The anchor measures 3/4″ by 4 1/8″. My tip with the anchor is to only place really strong adhesive on the outer edge only.
Slip the longer part of the waterfall compinent behind the anchor. THis will be your pull down function.
Cut up 4 pieces of the 2″ x 2″ square in cardstock. Adhere some pattern paper 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ on top of the cardstock. These panels are the square panels that need to be adhere straight on the ling rectangle pull mechanism.
I have made a quick process video for you all. Sit back get a cuppa and hop you enjoy today’s creation.
