The Peaceful Night stamp set from the Woodware Craft Collection is a gorgeous stamp.
It stamps perfectly every time.
I heat embossed with silver embossing powder and coloured with a mixture of gel pens and coloured pencil.
I coloured the front of the buildings with white coloured pencil before overlaying with a light blue pencil.
The gel pens used for the windows and the domed roofs were applied direct.
The stamped image was cut to size and layered onto a silver card layer before adhering to a card base.
The first card uses the "Christ is Born" stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps.
It has one large image stamp of the nativity scene with 7 beautiful sentiments.
The inspiration for this card came from Kelly Latevola Taylor's You Tube video using this stamp set. As soon as I saw the video I knew I had to try it as it was such a lovely card that's easy to replicate in multiples for Christmas.
The image was heat embossed onto navy card with white embossing powder.
To create the allusion of night sky the edges were blended with chipped sapphire and hickory smoke distress inks. Extra stars were added with a white gel pen.
Finally, a little bit of sparkle was added to the main star and the holy family with a glitter pen.
Another version of the "Christ is Born" stamp set. This time the image and sentiment were stamped onto a sheet of designer card from Clarity Stamps.
The designer cards from Clarity are beautiful reproductions of alcohol ink backgrounds. This sheet is from the Shenandoah collection.
Silver embossing powder was used for this card but on reflection I feel the white has more impact.
My next cards were all made with the Silent Night 6 x 6 paper pad, matching ephemera and a solid paper pack. This allowed me to make a batch of cards in two sittings.
For the majority of the cards I only used glue, scissors and my paper trimmer. Debunking the myth that you need lots of tools to create.
The packs are such good value for money when you add up the cost per card.
This was a departure for me from my "normal" card making and one that I will certainly try again.

The ephemera pack has loads of images and sentiments - I have a lot left over!
Extra sentiments can also be found on the back of some of the patterned paper.
