Away in a manger


Time again for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday. The theme this time is Inspired By A Song/Carol.  I've gone with the Carol option as I had just got this Woodware stamp and wanted to use it.  Unfortunately I have had great difficulty in getting it to stamp properly, this is the best out of several attempts so it's not going to be the quick Christmas card stamp I thought it was going to be!
Stamped with Versafine and clear embossed, coloured with distress inks.The back ground is coloured with the same DI and stamped with a liitle star stamp from a free set.I hope you will visit the challenge site and see the lovely samples by the design team and then join in our challenge

I'd also like to add my card to The Rudolph Day challenge, last one for this year and I've managed to enter every month this year.

Traditional Christmas



Time for mid month post at Stamping Sensations challenge to use traditional colours. For my card I have used Chocolate Baroque A Tomte Christmas stamps, I particularly love the jaunty little reindeer. There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge and there is a great prize to be won.  Please make sure your entry has stamping as the focal point if it is to be considered for the prize.

Traditional Colours

Its time for the November challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we want to see traditional Christmas colours.  We are sponsored this month by Chocolate Baroque and there are some lovely stamps to be won !

















For my card I used distress inks Festive Berries and Twisted Citron for the background piece and did a bit of water splattering, then stamped the berry sprigs all over it.  I stamped the poinsettia on a piece of white card and coloured it with the same distress inks but it looked a bit wish washy so went over it with pro markers, added a bit of glitter to the flower centres.

I Hope you will join in our challenge but please remember that to be in with a chance of winning a prize your entry must be stamped and follow the theme. A small added sentiment does not count, the stamping needs to be the main point of your entry.
