Christmas with Dylusions

Published December 26, 2012 by isisimaginings

Hello blog visitors, we made it to the day after.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day & if you got gifts of new crafty stash, congratulations!  Very enexpectedly, I got the gift of  some money, which I will use to treat myself to something new.  I rather like this new stamp set from Chocolate Baroque……

I still have a few Christmas projects to show you, so I thought today would be the turn of the cards I made with Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions sprays, stamps & stencils.  I only made THREE Dylusions cards, which is disgraceful & must be rectified for next Christmas.



Other than the sentiments, ( a very generous gift from Denise Phillips of Birdnuts Mixed Media), I don’t have any of Dyan’s Christmas stamps – something else I really must rectify before next Christmas –  so I’ve put the heads on to assorted stamped bodies.  This first one has a body from a Kanban stamp.


Here’s the Polkadoodle tree stamp that I showed you in a previous post.  I coloured it with Promarkers & added glitter.  You can see the Dylusions star stencil in the background, I edged some of the stars in black & some in glitter.

Looking at this image now, I’ve suddenly had an idea for doing something different with the tree.  Isn’t it strange how that happens sometimes?  (Pity it doesn’t happen for me more often).  I must make a note before I forget it.


I have to admit to having a soft spot for this card.  I think I’ll use this idea in another project & keep it for myself.  The body of the ‘reindeer’ is a Hot Off The Press stamp, which was free in a magazine some time ago & I can’t now remember which magazine.  I faffed around for ages trying to think of how to make antlers, before remembering the Tim Holtz Pinecone Alterations die – the leaves were ideal.  The tiny snowflakes are from a Crealies die, I put drops of ice white Liquid Pearls here & there & some doodling with a black Pitt pen to frame the image.   I attached the bell to the glasses with jump rings.

That’s all for today.  Thank you to everyone who has left comments this past week, I appreciate it very much.  I’m going to try & write another post tomorrow to show my December tags for Lord Tim’s 12 Tags of 2012.  Until then, have a wonderful day.

Love & light

  • It’s very enlightening visiting you here – superbly inventive mixing heads & bodies & I had to laugh at the last one. I’m learning that I’ve got to start & then other ideas will develop as I go along. Glad you got the means for that delightful stamp set – t’was in my parcel too & intrigued husband completely when wrapping it.
