A Christmas Kiss By Tracey Anne

J and C Creations have a fantastic range of Stamps for you to choose from and Penny Black  is no exception. The stamping quality is second to none and I love working with their new Christmas  range.  Today's Card was made using the Slapstick Christmas kiss Stamp. I thought it might be nice to make her part of a Easel Card . These are very easy to make, just take a regular card and fold the front panel again so it folds back on its self . That's the basic just remember to put a 'stopper' of some kind at the front or your easel card will keep sliding down!! as you can see from the photo I've used a large snowflake to do this job.
You will need
Slapstick Christmas kiss Stamp.
Ranger Glossy Accents
Fleur de lis square spellbinders die
Penny Black Sentiment
Tim Holts Distressig ink pad 'Fired brick'
white card
Create a flake spellbinders die set
marianne designs snowflake
M-bossibilities folder
Red and Silver card, silver and gold paper dots , Alcohol pens and Gold glitter.
All highlighted items can be found onthe J and C Creations website.

To colour in the image I used a mixture of Pro markers and Spectrum Noir alcohol pens.
At the moment the Pro markers out number the Spectrum Noirs in my craft room 4-1 but I am hoping to change this in the next few months as I love the results from the Spectrum Noirs more so have invested in some more colours to enhance my work


Step 1

Create your topper
Stamp and colour your Slapstick Christmas kiss Stamp.
To Colour the little girl the pens I used
Face/flesh- Promarkers Almond, Satin and Dusky Pink
Hair - Honey comb. and Cocoa
Bauble- Crimson ,berry red and lemon
Background - Pastel Beige
Dress - Spectrum Noirs CG1,CG2,DG2,DG3,DG4,JG6
Step 2

when the image was coloured I used some Ranger Glossy Accents on the bauble to make it 3d . I applied 3 times allowing for the vanish to dry each time , on the 2nd application I sprinkled in some gold glitter to give it that encapsulated sparkle look. she also has a couple of gems where here berries would be and a star in her hair and some more gold glitter on her dress to add a little interest. When this is completely dry cut 'her' out I've mounted her onto a red Fleur de lis square die cut and  some Acetate inside a silver ring and put her on my easel card

Step 3
Stamp your Penny Black Sentiment using Tim Holts Distressig ink pad 'Fired brick' onto a small square piece of white card and dust round the egdes lightly then matt and layer onto some silver holograpic card. Tuck your sentiment under 'her' skirt and glue in place

Step 4
Cut out 2 corners using the marianne Corners die in red card and place on the bottom corners. make up some Snow flakes using your Create a flake spellbinders die set and marianne designs snowflake set and some white card top these with silver and gold paper candie dots. glue onto front of card .
Step 5
Create the base of your card by cutting some red, Silver and white card in slightly graduating sizes starting with the white and getting larger as you go finishing with the silver. Run the white card
through an M-bossibilities folder and then matt and layer . stick this to the base of your card and add a large snowflake as your stopper. This card will fold flat into an envelope if you wish to post it.

Thanks so much Tracey Anne its a great card
