Hi Everybody, I hope you have all recovered from the Christmas festivities!

Today's card features a stamp from a set that I bought a number of years ago. I have used various scraps for the background, and added a toning bow.

Mail Art

I am just sneaking in at the last minute for my entry at Paper Artsy for their Mail Art challenge
I used Dylusions spray for the background colourand used Memento Tuxedo black for the stamping. I added a little white gesso in the centre so that the address could easily be seen

Little red robin?

I have made this card using one of my older stamp sets. It is simply stamped with Memneto Tuxedo Black on to a snippet of white, layered onto black, layered onto an embossed piece of white card, and then all mounted onto a black card base. I added a little colour to the wee bird, perhaps he is not a robin after all!

Tis Christmas time

I won this lovely Woodware stamp a while ago from Di, at Pixies Crafty Workshop, and this is the first outing!
It is stamped onto a snippet of white card, and then again on some gold metallic scraps.
I paper pieced the numbers with the gold, coloured the holly and berries with copics, added some shine to the berries with 'Dimensional Magic' and filled in the dots with gold 'Smooches' Then layered it onto some pretty coral paper from my stash, then onto white card.

Glisten and Sparkle

Hi everyone!
I was so thrilled to be asked by Nikki at Indigo Blu to do a post for the challenge. My background was a 'mop up' of DI Peacock Feathers that I had been using for another project. I then stamped this delightful image and embossed with 'bright gold' EP. I added some sparkly sequins, gold 'glitter glue', and using ds tape around the edges, I sprinkled on some holographic glitter and then mounted the panel on to a matching turquoise card
It is quite difficult to pick up the sparkle in a photograph, but it is very sparkly IRL
