Vintage Christmas by Pascale

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Blue Fern Studio with three new projects featuring the Vintage Christmas 1 & 2 collections. The first project is a mini album entirely realized with the first Vintage Christmas collection. The size of the mini album is 13 x18 cm (5" 1/4 x 7"1/4).

 I embossed the pages with different stamps as well as the edges. 

I die-cut a few doilies to add inside. I added the page titles too.

I added the first design to the cover with the Brocade Texture stamp and the Ginger powder. Then I continue with the Christmas Collage stamp set and a permanent ink.

I embossed the Dangled Flake with two layers of Black Sand embossing powder and the Winter Flakes with two layers of Ginger While the embossing powder was still hot, I stamped the Winter Flakes to add some texture.

My second project is a layout featuring the new Vintage Christmas collection. I chose an old photo of my daughter.

I cut a large strip in the Twas the Night paper and glued it on the Joly paper. Then I primed the background with clear gesso.

I added a thin layer of white gesso where I want to put my embellishments and photo. When dry, I added a design with 3D Gloss Gel and a stencil. While the gel was still wet I sprinkled some Pyrite glitter.

While the background was drying, I painted the chipboard with a metallic paint and the Soft Blossoms in red. 

I splattered some red and copper paint; Then I added a new design to the background with the Christmas Collage stamp embossed with the Ginger powder. I colored the area with different colors of watercolor.

I glued all the embellishments with a 3D gel (flowers, chipboard, lace...), and to finish, I added some star brads embossed with the Ginger powder.

Here is my third November's project: a set of card.

I chose the Jolly paper as the base of both cards. I stamped them with one of the stamps from the Christmas Collage set. Then I embossed the image with a sticky powder in order to add Carribean glitters.

Then I embossed also the edges of both cards with the 14 Karats powder to add some extra shine.

I embossed some Winter Flakes with the Honey powder, other with the Ginger and the Antique Gold powders. 

I embossed some die-cut leaves with the 14 Karats powder too. While the embossing powder was still hot I sprinkled them with  the Carribean glitter and heat set them.
