Do you sense a theme? I don’t know why that’s what I’m drawn to this year, but I’m just going with it and enjoying it. Lots of glitter on this and some flicked Crafty Notions white spray for snow. Iced Spruce works really well for snow and background trees. The greens are Adirondack Meadow. Words aren’t stamped well, but I still like the patchy look. If I do this again, I’ll go off the page to make it more realistic but time’s run out for now.
I’ve just stamped a stack of simple card fronts and will be trimming and mounting them tonight, while I’m catching up on a couple of my favourite programmes, missed while I was away for the weekend. At least I’ve made a start and although some of them are the same, I’ve varied them slightly. I have loads more to make but I just seem to be making more mess right now and can’t find a flipping thing in my stamping room. One day I’ll learn not to leave everything until last minute – or will I?
I’m entering this into this week’s Drunken Stampers Challenge, which is Glittery Holiday.
Just a quickie to post this card – haven’t had much time to make more, although I need loads, so will have to get going on those next week!
Told you I had a bit of a ‘green’ thing this year, he, he. More resist here, too, but this time it’s embossed, for a change. I love this swirl from Stamp Camp. Not much light here – grey skies, strong winds and hail, unfortunately!
I’ll be away this weekend, so see you when I come back! Have a great weekend and hope the weather’s kind to you.
Just like buses, nothing for ages then suddenly you get a few posts, lol. I finished these over the last few days but haven’t had chance to photograph them, partly due to lack of light!
The first one is for the One Layer Wednesday challenge, which is to use nothing but a Greetings stamp on two cards, using different colours or placement. Just sneaking in by the skin of my teeth on this one, even though I had hoped to take part earlier in the week!
My first one is embossed in glitter gold EP on champagne pearlescent card.
The second one obviously uses the same stamp, but this time it’s embossed with Pearl Gold EP on a cream 6×4 card. Hard to photograph in this grey light.
Far from perfect, but that’s me finished with Christmas cards for this year… terrible, isn’t it? Only been doing Christmas for a couple of weeks. Dunno how you guys who do it all year round cope – aaghh! I can’t wait to put my Christmas stamps away.
(name of recipient blanked out, lol)
Did you know that if you heat organza ribbon, this is what happens? You need to be very careful, but it curls as it melts and looks really cool 🙂
This one’s blue and pink, but it’s difficult to see the colours cos it was dark when I took the photo…
