Where did the weekend go?

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I do hope you have had a great weekend. Mine seems to have gone by in a flash. I can't believe I am sitting here now writing a blog post that I should have written and posted this morning. On the plus side I have got four samples made for another Tattered Lace show at the end of the week. I am hoping to get them in the post on Tuesday there is one more thing that I want to make.

I made this card on Friday as I wanted to try some different with the stag from the Deer Family set of dies.


I wanted to try a more clean and simple style.  I made myself a mask and a moon out of a post-it note and I inked the top layer with two shades of blue Distress Ink. I used my brushes for inking they came from Clarity stamps I am seriously thinking of getting some more.  I drew a line around the inking with my Perfect Medium pen and I heat embossed it with a black sparkly powder. I stamped the Santa and sleigh with a black ink and heat embossed that with the same powder. 


I cut the stag out of some black card. Once it was cut and embossed I backed it with some silver card. The tree came from the Winter Trees set and was cut in green and embossed the baubles were made with CS glue in Berry Red and Olympic Gold. 


The sentiment came in the same set as the Santa and sleigh. 

I hope that you have a great week ahead. 

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
