Double Claritystampers (Part two)

Hello again!

I thought I would get part two done while I am in the mood!  These are the three cards we did yesterday.  I would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to the lovely Lynne Hammond fellow DT member who agreed to let me use her fab Christmas jumper card.  The ladies loved it Lynne and we got it done without too much Valium!! ...some wonderful results too!

This is Lynne's card, for the original see Lynne's blog  This is really a lesson in stamping and keeping your concentration!
Lynne used a pencil line to keep the stamping in the background straight, but I didn't fancy all the rubbing out afterwards, so I used masking tape!

 For this card, I cut an aperture in a square piece of card. I squished some distress ink on a glass mat and added a spritz of water and a touch of glimmer spray, then picked that up with a sponge and lightly coloured the card
The lovely reindeer/stag is stamped on a separate piece of card and the background coloured blue.
The tree is stamped on another pice of card and cut out (and glittered!)
I also stamped the edge of the tree round the edges of the aperture square.
Stick it all together and add the message
Finally, for tbis card, we used white acrylic paint sponged lightly on the top half of some white card, then once it is dry, mask off the bottom and add blue to the top half, the acrylic paint will resist the ink
Stamp the trees and stag in place and repeat for the message, without the acrylic paint

I hope I have caught up a bit!

Thanks you for stopping by
