A Winter Scene....

Yes you have guessed it im back with yet another Christmas card but this time ive done something a little different and have done some resist embossing. I love stamping and heat embossing especially for Christmas cards.

The main stamp i have used is a Penny Black stamp called Snowdust and the snowflake corner stamp and sentiment is from a Habico set. The ink ive used is Tim Holtz Faded Jeans and ive used silver stickles for the centres of the snowflakes.

Ive made this card to fit in with the following challenges:

Penny Black Challenge ( Men/Boys cards )

Bah Humbug ( Favorite Mediums ) Mine is Stamping and heat embossing.

Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

Frosty the Snowman....

Well another Christmas card and another Christmas song title in my head lol.

I decided to make an easel card as i hadn't made one for a while and they look great and are so easy to make BUT so hard to photograph grrrr so i apologize for the picture grrrr its taken me ages and this is the best from a bad bunch lol.

The image is WOJ which ive coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment which reads May the Season bring you Warmth and Joy is from a Habico stamp set. The Snowflakes are shapabilites and ive layered them up. Most of the papers ive used are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the long strips along the middle are Paper Mania.

Ive made this card to fit in with the following Challenges:

Whiff Of Joy ( Lots of Layers )

Crafters Companion Challenge ( Sketch )

Winter Wonderland ( A Recipe )

Bah Humbug ( A Christmas Carol or Song )

Well ive been sat here waiting for the cleaning and washing fairy's to show up but you have guessed it they haven't so i suppose i had better make a start and clean the house because it wont clean itself lol.

Have a lovely day.

Thanks for looking.
