A Charming Christmas …

I know we’ve only just put our Christmas things away for another year, but I just couldn’t resist making one last Christmas card with the Charming stamp set from the new mini catalogue. Don’t you think the round stamp from the set looks just like a snowflake?!



I used an offcut of whisper white textured cardstock leftover after making the card I posted here yesterday, and added this as a panel down the centre of a standard A6 size base card in pool party.

The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas set, stamped in early espresso ink directly onto the whisper white panel.

The “snowflakes” were stamped in pool party onto whisper white cardstock, punched out with the large square punch and adhered to the centre panel with stampin’ dimensionals, with a rhinestone added to the centre of each snowflake.

What a charming Sunday…

What a great day!   It was so frosty overnight – this morning the whole countryside looked like it had been sprinkled with dazzling diamonds!

My friend, Deborah, and I got to see quite a bit of the country as we drove to Michelle Last’s craft event in Bicester – some 168 miles, or 3 hours away.  That meant a really early start for us – even before the birds were awake – but it was so worth it to spend time with our fellow Pink Ladies.  We came back full of ideas and inspiration, and having had a wonderful day crafting, laughing and having fun. 

One of the cards from my inspiration station – made with the Charming stamp set …

Recipe: sahara sand, whisper white and calypso coral cardstock, lucky limeade, island indigo and calypso coral inks and matching brads; perfect polka dots embossing folder, stampin’ dimensionals.
