Christmas for just a little bit longer

Well, I'm still going with Christmas cards for a little while longer - there's no harm in getting ahead for next year while your still in the spirit, eh?
I stamped directly on to the stampin up woodland embossing folder with a woodware tree stamp and a card-io deer stamp. I then brayered the folder with clear embossing ink and ran the folder through my bigshot. I then embossed the whole thing with clear sparkle embossing powder. The flourish in the corner is made using Sizzix  holiday greens dies and finished with a pearl dot.

I'd like to enter this in to the challenge at Craft Stamper and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

Happy Christmas!

Well, I've worked my last day before Christmas and I don't start again until... wait for it.. Boxing day! I've arrived home to find I don't have a key so I thought it a good opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas while I sit in my car and wait for my husband to get home!


I made this project a little earlier this month but didn't get chance to post it. If you would like a step by step you'll find it over on the craft barn blog. The central stamp is made by woodware and the flowers are Tim Holtz tattered floral. 

I'd like to enter this in to the challenge at stamping sensations.

All that remains is to say I hope you all have a very
Happy Christmas! 
See you in the new year x

Dachsund through the snow!

I bought this gorgeous stamp set in September as a SSS exclusive. I'm so pleased I did- it has came in handy for lots of different cards this year. I made a whole set of small simple ones for my work colleagues but wanted to pull out the stops a bit more for this one, destined for my parents.

The background is don't with distress inks and colour bloom, plus versa colour metallic ink for the snowflakes. The stamps are mostly lawn fawns happy howlidays although I also borrowed some stamps from their toboggan together set.
Wink of stella was added to the snow and the whole thing is assembled with 3d foam mount pads athe different thicknesses.

Happy Howlidays!

Challenges; 
(I've only just found this challenge and am gutted to find it is running for a final time- all the best guys)
Allsorts blue bingo (middle line, left to right... Alright the yellow is a bit gold but I added dimension with the 3d foam pads and there is definitely no designer paper!)
