A Merry Christmas to you all

  Good morning everyone.  Well the countdown is on to Christmas.  The children are getting excited, The tree is up and we a re in the process of making cards for all their school friends.  Today I am sharing two cards that I created using the totally awesome Memory Maze Chipboard.


I had lots of fun playing with these designs.  

Silent Night

This first card is super easy to do.  I painted all the designs in black distress paint and let dry.


While it was drying I created my background by using three colours of distress ink and blended them in to give me my background of a sunset.
  For the big star I covered it with distress glitter.  I love this glitter, such a vintage feel to it.,  once ever thing was dry I glued them all down.  To make the frame stand out I covered it in a thin layer of glossy accents.


Let t snow :-)

I can not take credit for the design of this stunning card.  It has been totally inspired by the one and only Tim Holtz.  I have changed the stamping to Chipboard and love the overall effect.

For this card I broke down one of the snowflake boarders into individual snowflakes,  painted them with distress paint and then added a think coat of distress glitter to make it look like snow.  I added a pearl into each of them.

I am a layer girl and I love all the different layers on this,  hard to believe there is 11 layers to get this effect.  But well worth it and the snow flakes make this card.

Well that's all from me for now.  I hope you all have a very happy and Merry Christmas.  Spend time with your family and enjoy.  Merry Christmas.  Fro all of us here in New Zealand :-)  xox Donna
