Bethlehem Journey

Hi Crafters.  Here is a Christmas card I made today. Very time consuming, but so much fun!!!

Everything on my card is from Fun Stampers Journey. 
My stamping first started with with the Vintage Notes Background stamp with Oatmeal Cookie onto Buttercream Cardstock cut to size.

I then stamped the buildings on the right side and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then using PanPastels, I colored in the sky and the sand. Because I am making kits with this for my Etsy Shop, I set the PanPastels with hairspray. 

I then took a small amout of white Gesso and watered it down and splattered it with a paint brush to look like stars.  I stamped the star and heat embossed with white ep and colored in with glue and clear glitter. 
This was then mounted on a slightly larger piece of Journey Brushed Gold Cardstock, then onto the Buttercream Cardstick Base. 

Mary & Joseph were stamped with Black Licorice ink, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.

Pumpkin Kisses

Here is my 3rd and last card for my October class.

The Leaves were die cut from the Snapshot Frames Dies Set in the same colors of inks mentioned above.

The sentiment and small flower were stamped with FSJ Rich Coral Fusions Blend Ink. Then layered onto a piece of Pumkin Bread Cardstock.
