Anyway the sets sold out really quickly ...hardly surprising as the are all fabulous stamps...and a bit different for Christmas than the usual!
I had one card shown and this is it
Strangely this had been the first card I made and boy did it give me problems.
I had recieved my stamps and was all excited getting my first parcel to play with! I took the blue off immediately and stamped the stamps out to see what they looked like. I always do this as it often gives me inspiration for what to do with the stamp.
I had an idea that the music could in some way be the wave that was carrying the ships along!!
I won't tell you how many pieces of clarity card actually went in the bin. And how many times I nearly threw my brayer in there too! However it was not plain sailing!...sorry! It was almost as though I had never stamped and or used a brayer before in my life!!!
Anyway after a few miserable attemps I walked away and had a cuppa then reurned to try again.
I tried at first to use the resist technique for the music stamp but the image was not sharp enough in the sea!!! So I started again and this time brayered the sea then stamped and heat embossed the music in white opaque embossing powder! Eventually I got something that I was happy with and then made the card from that!. Thank goodness for the letterbox kit!
I then was moving on to my next sketch idea and cutting some card to make that topper when the next idea came to me. It uses the I saw Three ships kit but also the holly sprigs from the Deck the Halls kit.
Quite a simple one this one and not using a brayer!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my first DT cards. Please let me know what you think.

Enjoy your day
