A Double Helping of Emboss Resist Christmas Cards using Peaceful Pines by Stampin' Up!

I hope you have had a wonderful time with family and loved ones this Christmas. We have pretty much stayed in the house since Christmas eve and chilled, it's been a much needed break for everyone :-)
I do have a few last Christmas makes to share with you so I will do a couple of posts over the next few days sharing the last of the festive makes from this year, perhaps you might be able to adapt the layout or ideas for non-christmas makes?
So, as promised the other day I have a duo of cards to share with you today, the first, Mint Macaron, was from the PEaceful Pines class I held a few weeks ago and the second, Night of Navy, one was just an extra I made with the circle die cut from THIS shaker card (also from the class).
Lets start with the Mint card...
 I stamped using Versamark and heat embossed over using Iridescent Ice powder
Then, using a sponge dauber and starting in the centre, I inked in a circular motion to get this hazy look.
 Finish with a few white perfect accents and thats this card, done.
 And card two. This one was heat embossed in white onto a circle that I die cut whilst making THIS card. I then inked over using a sponge and navy ink to make this card.
 A closer look at the tree
 I added the sentiment onto a die cut tree adding a few extra snowflakes from the set too.
 I used the Watercolour Wash background stamp with heat and stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter for this card. It's really sparkly IRL but very difficult to photograph ;-)
 and a top view to finish today
Well, I hope you liked todays cards? Don't forget to take a look in the Clearance Rack for a bargain or two from the Autumn/Winter catalogue which will finish on the 4th January when the new Spring/Summer catalogue* launches. *You can Message me for a copy and I'll post out after the bank holiday :-)
Thanks so much for looking today,
