"Pick of the Week" - 10

Good Morning Everybody!
Gwyneth back with another "Pick of the Week".

I've been having fun playing with more dig-stamps from the Stamping Dragon Designs shop.

With less than two months to go to Christmas I've used a couple of Christmas digi-stamps this time.

This is a dimensional card where the Christmas scene can be seen behind the window, or the bow can be untied for a closer look at the scene.

Stamping Dragon Designs Items:
"Oh Christmas Tree" - found - Here - in the shop.
"Jiggy in front of Fire" - found - Here - in the shop.
Consumables:
Super Smooth white cardstock; ProMarkers; Metalic Markers; Wink of Stella pen; Sakura Clear Star; 8" square cream textured base card; 6" square cream textured base card; Gold, linen textured cardstock; Red Satin Board; Red striped cardstock; Yellow patterned cardstock; Glitter Flocking; Die cut holly leaves; Red glitter glue; Red organza ribbon; Acetate; Greeting panel - "Nadolig Llawen" which is Welsh for "Happy Christmas"; Ultra sticky double sided tape;1mm deep, double sided, foam tapel; Finger-lift Tape; Glue Gel
Equipment:
Score Board; Scissors; Steel Edged ruler; Craft Knife

The smaller card was scored 1cm into the back from the fold to give a dimensional "spine" to the card, and then the shortened back had a red card attached to make it the same size as the front.  Windows were cut out of the front of the card and a sheet of acetate was attached to the back of the window, trapping a piece of  red ribbon between window frame and acetate.  This smaller card was matted and layered onto the larger card, again trapping a piece of red ribbon between the layers.

I printed out the two digi-stamps out onto Super Smooth Cardstock, coloured them in using my ProMarkers and some other markers, before cutting them out.  The yellow patterned panel was stuck inside the smaller card, and the digis attached, the fireplace image using foam tape and the tree using a "box" constructed of a strip of cardstock.

Further decoration of die-cut holly leaves and glitter flocking was added to decorate the front and the two ribbon ends were tied in a bow.

And as a little extra this time - I've decorated a candle with one of the digis I used on the card to give as a gift with the card.
I attached a piece of printable tissue to a sheet of lightweight paper using finger-lift tape and printed the digi onto it at the right size for my project.  I then coloured it in using my ProMarkers.
I tore around the edge of the tissue close to the image, put it onto a pillar candle, wrapped greaseproof paper around and heated with my heat gun until the wax began to melt.

This candle can be burnt, but not on the holly wreath decorative base I made from Satin Board and die-cut holly leaves and berries from my crafting stash.

If you love the images used here, but think that you won't have enough time left to colour in a lot of digi-stamps to make Christmas cards, then the images are available already coloured from the shop:
"Oh Christmas Tree Coloured" - Here.
"Jiggy in front of Fire" - Here.

And that is it from me for today.
Marleen will be here next Monday to share her next "Pick of the Week" project to share with you all, and Fran the Monday after that.  The following Monday we have Tania sheduled for the "Pick of the Week" slot, and I hope that you'll visit here again in four weeks time when I'm hoping to be back with another Christmas card to show you.
In the meantime there are a lot of other interesting posts planned for other days - and you might even find me popping back at some point before my next "Pick of the Week" slot.

If you fancy trying out some of Stamping Dragon Designs, please do visit the Store to find all sorts of digital goodies (you'll find great digi-stamps and lots more).

Till next time - Have Fun Crafting!
