Good Tuesday Morning Blog Friends
I hope you had a lovely weekend, and are raring to go for the rest of this week. I can't believe in less than a week I will start to put up my Christmas Decorations, It takes me at least a week to put them all up. My favourite is the fire surround. I absolutely love Christmas, but this year we have a few first's to overcome.
Anyway like I said the last Christmas DT card this month, and then on to my next challenge for next month, even more of a challenge for me.
Back to the last Christmas card. I have used practically every stamp in the partridge in a pear tree set. I hope it's not too much of an overload.

8x8 white card
Gold & silver Mirri card
Silver mica flakes
Distress ink- Wild honey,Tattered rose, and weathered wood.
Spellbinders- Large square dies
Sue Wilson-Festive collection- Pine bough
Cosmic shimmer embossing powder Gold silver black and true white
Cosmic Shimmer- Mica powder- rose pink gold & blue
Most of the stamps from- Partridge in a pear tree stamp pack
First of all I matt and layered an 8x8 white card with gold mirri and white card, added sticky strips for dimension, did the same with silver and white card and lastly added gold mirri and white card for another dimension, but covered last layer of white card with a sticky sheet and covered with silver Mica flakes.
1st square, I stamped the partridge with clear medium covered with black embossing powder and heat embossed. I then used pink gold and blue mica powder with a water paint brush and coloured the partridge. I cut some twigs from the pine bough dies, stamped a couple of pine sprigs and heat embossed in silver and then st the partridge on top with sticky pads
2nd square stamped music verse stamp with clear medium then added true white embossing powder and heat embossed., matt and layered with a smaller square the finally stamped a sentiment, heat embossed in silver embossing powder and layered with sticky pads.
3rd square, just stamped sentiment and horn stamp with clear medium and heat embossed with silver embossing powder, and added very thin sticky pads for slight dimension.
I stamped all 3 of the small pear stamps in clear medium covered each one with a different embossing powder, Gold,silver and true white and heat embossed. The diamond embossed pear, I then coloured with pink, blue and honey distress ink same colours as the partridge to tie in the colour scheme.
Finally I matt and layered each square with several layers of card and sticky pads until each square was a different level.
Sounds a lot of work, but you could cut many squares at one time. It was good fun
