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.

Christmas stocking

Hi, and welcome. I hope you’re enjoying your day.

We have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – to use a wood background…

Looking through my stash of dsp, I thought this wood effect paper would be perfect …

I couldn’t resist this Christmas stocking die set by Sizzix, which is on offer on their website at the moment. It looks so pretty in cherry cobbler and whisper white, with sprigs in old olive cardstock cut with the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens die set.

I love this verse from the More Merry Messages stamp set. Stamped in black stazon ink onto whisper white card, then the edges distressed with scissors.

I added a glittery snowflake, and a tiny heart made from paper clay.

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

Enjoy your weekend.
