Christmas in July with Visible Image

Now don't shoot the messenger as I know that a lot of my regular blog readers do not like the "C" word until 1st December but in the crafting world Christmas in July is very important to get the new Christmas releases out. Visible Image launched theirs on Friday on Hobbymaker TV and if you missed it do catch up with the shows. There are lots of mine and my UK teamies design team samples and Mark gave some fab demos. The new release is called "Sketched Christmas" and very different to  Mark's usual grungy, drippy designs. These are hand sketched by him and they are totally delightful.

Here they are, 6 new stamp sets available here on the website. 

The set I am using for my first blogged design team project is the beautiful

And this is the card I made

This is a very quick card to make and you can use any colourway. I chose to use blue using distress stain and mica sprays. These are always a good option for a quick frosty background. 

I used these colours;

It is very important to allow your background to dry before adding any embossing powder, I leave mine overnight at least. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right quadrant of my background and white heat embossed it. 

I then stamped and white heat embossed the rest of my design. 

I added some touches of glitter pen

I also added a sequin in the centre of the larger snowflakes plus a few more dotted around for some extra detail and texture. As a finishing touch I matted it on to white glitter paper and then onto a deep blue card blank I made from an A4 sheet of card. 

So here is my finished card again.

With a close up.

and one final shot. 

Do check out this gorgeous new release. You can really quickly batch make with them too. I will be using these for all my Christmas cards this year. I will share some more of my design team samples over the coming month. Stay tuned!
