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.

Endless wishes in pink, purple and blue

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use pink, purple and blue. I chose 3 of my favourite Stampin’ Up ink colours – regal rose, rich razzleberry and marina mist to make my card …

I used the Endless Wishes stamp set by Stampin’ Up to stamp snowflakes in each of the colours across a piece of whisper white card, and then added the sentiment in black ink.

I used second generation ink for the regal rose to give me the shade of pink I wanted …

I mounted it onto a piece of rich razzleberry card and then onto a deckled edged card base. A sprinkling of rhinestones across the card added a bit of bling, and I just couldn’t resist adding dazzling diamonds to the snowflakes with a glue pen, for added Christmas sparkle …

It’s such a pretty colour combination, so whilst I had all my supplies out, I made another…

Now I can’t decide which card I like the best … how about you – which do you prefer?

We would love you to join us at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge and show us your beautiful artwork.

Enjoy your weekend.
