Stampin Up!®Demonstrator Donna Gray Using The Beachy Little Christmas Stamp

Beachy Little Christmas Stamp is Perfect for the Aussie Xmas!!

Hi Welcome to my blog I am Donna Gray & I am a 
Stampin Up!®Demonstrator from the Northern Rivers In New South Wales Australia 
I love Christmas & I think it is the most exciting time to make cards as they are all so beautiful. I was asked quite often last year at the markets where I sell my hand made cards if I had some Christmas Cards that were more Aussie themed eg Kangaroos Koala's or the beach. Well you can imagine my excitement when I layed my eyes on The Beachy Little Christmas Stamp Set. 
I created this card using some sponging techniques for the background.

I made the base from our Bermuda bay Card stock Then layered with a layer of Melon Mambo Card Stock. Then on the Whisper White piece of card stock I cut a piece of copy paper to the shape of the sand dunes & sponged with Crumb Cake Ink I also sponged a circle up the top of the layer to look like a sun. For the water & sky I used Marina Mist Ink Pad & Soft Sky Ink Pad for the sky.
I Heat embossed the Beachy Christmas Tree & the Beach hut using VersaMark Ink Pad  & Silver embossing Powder I then used my Aqua Painters & Ink Pads to colour my images.
To finish off the front I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso Ink Pad.
I have made a video tutorial for this card if you would like to

The Fresh Fig Ribbon just really finished the front of perfectly. The happ…
