Glass glitter star card

Hi and welcome to my blog. 

I’m back after the Easter break to join the colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where this week the challenge is to use silver and white. I loved making this star shaped card …

I folded a piece of white cardstock in half and die cut the star shape across the fold to keep the card joined at the top, then stamped the sentiment with versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Next, I added silver glass glitter to the bottom half using heat and stick powder.

I love how it turned out – that glass glitter is lush!

I’m linking this card up with the Happy Little Stampers ‘anything goes with dies’ challenge:

I hope you like my card for this week and that you’re inspired to join the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend.

Little robin red breast

A brand new month brings a brand new hostess to set the challenges at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The first challenge of the month is always a sketch. This one is for Deborah, whom I miss …

I spent a relaxing afternoon, colouring this stamped robin with alchohol pens.

The pretty paper matched beautifully, picking up the colours of the image, and made a great background…

Searching through my scraps box, I found a red tag which I thought fitted perfectly, not only with the colour scheme, but with the sketch too …

And finally, a glittery snowflake to add a little sparkle.

Some people believe that when a robin appears, loved ones are near. A robin frequently visits our garden and I love to listen to his birdsong – so wonderful.

I hope you like my card for this week. It would be lovely if you join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and share your beautiful artwork.

Enjoy your weekend.
