O Holy Night

This is another of the cards the ladies made at my Christmas stamp a stack class.

It uses the main stamp from the "O holy night" set.  I fell in love with this set the moment I first saw it in the seasonal catalogue.  It uses the lyrics of traditional carols alongside festive sentiments in a really modern style.  The perfect combination!

I have used the winter frost dsp stack as my colour inspiration,  taking smoky slate as my cardbase, island indigo for the mat and stamped in coastal cabana and island indigo inks. 

I have finished it off with a small rhinestone and a couple of strips of the silver glimmer paper.  This is fantastic value at £4.50 for 5 12"x12" sheets.  It is super sparkly,  doesn't leave a trail of glitter every time you touch it and a little bit goes a long way!

Getting festive

Good morning! After an early awakening by the little boy I thought I would do a quick post about the cards we made at my Christmas stamp a stack class.
I had 14 lovely ladies stamping the night away.  We made 4 different designs of card,  making a total of 12 cards to kick start the festive feeling.  Homemade gingerbread men provided much needed fuel for the marathon session!

This card uses the gorgeous Joyful Christmas stamps - I love the poinsettia and have seen some amazing projects which use it - both cards and 3D items.  It's just beautiful stamped in cherry cobbler ink on a very vanilla mat.  The leaves are I  gumball green and the sentiment has been coloured with the coordinating stampin write markers.
All this has been mounted on a gumball green mat and cherry cobbler card base.
I just added a little sparkle with a few basic rhinestones.

Who wouldn't love to receive this card? it would definitely have pride of place on my mantle piece - if I had one!

Feeling chilly

Here's a little sneak peek at a project that I have been making.

I love my owl builder punch. It was the first item on my wishlist and I have never regretted buying it.  These cute little penguins are so simple to make using the punch and just a few snips with your scissors - but don't they look amazing.

I used hand torn strips of whisper white cardstock distressed along the torn edge with island indigo ink and a dauber to make a snowy landscape.

Get in touch with me if you would likely to join us at our Christmas workshop and have a go at making your own!
