Sleigh Ride Edgelits

Hi All

Hope you're having a great week so far. We had our class on Tuesday and used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits on our projects.

The sky was created by randomly applying 3 shades of blue inks with Stamping Sponges then using the Craft pigment ink with the Sponge Daubers for the moon and the clouds. Add a bit more of the blue inks to darken certain areas before using Gorgeous Grunge for the falling snow.
Use 7.5cm x 9.5cm card, align the top of trees edgelits to the top of the card and run through the Big Shot. For the houses edgelits, use 6cm x 9.5cm card.
Ink the edges, stamp the sentiment before adhering with stampin' pads. Apply glitter and use yellow glitter pen for the windows.

Quick and simple card, just add sentiment (from Christmas Cuties) and Gorgeous Grunge for the background.

Barry made another card for our class which we currently can't locate but will hopefully post in the future.

We also made a few more cards using the edgelits for our inspiration table

Colour combo was inspired by a game. The sentiment is from Wondrous Wreath and Endless Birthday Wishes. TIP: use cotton buds for finer details on the clouds if the daubers are too big.

This card can be flatten to easily put in an envelope. Barry created the scene by adding 1cm depth on both edgelits. 
Dimensions when opened 12.8cm x 10.5cm x 2cm
Black card 16.8cm x 10.5cm. Score at 2cm and 14.8cm
Houses 14.8cm x 8cm. Score at 1cm and 13.8cm 
Sleigh 14.8cm x 8cm. Score at 1cm and 13.8cm

Another card by Barry with 2cm depth using different inks. I couldn't quite get the lighting right for the glitter to show on this card :(

I also made 2 more after our class:

I made this card using the piece I started during class to demo how to do the clouds. I used the off cut of the edgelits as a stencil to add the silhouette. We were also talking about the super moon during class which I tried to recreate here.

I just love these colours and creating the clouds so I did another one with the off cuts as stencil.

Hope these inspires you to create something this weekend. Details of our demos and class this month can be found on our site - CLICK HERE

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
