May all of your Christmases be white

Hi there,

The older you get the quicker the years fly by!  I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone.  It a little over  a month it will be Christmas.  I am a little organised this year, I don't make a lot of Christmas cards and those who receive the handmade ones truly appreciate them.  I have used the faux letterpress technique with this card using the Kaiscraft Petals embossing folder. Scrapbook Boutique will have all the products used along with the details on this card.  Have a go and join in our challenge, there is 10 days left :)

Here is my take on the challenge.

This Christmas Die is just magical!  Actually I think it will be silly to just pigeon hole it just for Christmas. It could be used for so many other projects.   I decided to fill in a few the pieces and I love the effect.  How gorgeous is the wrapped star???? I just fell in love with this as soon as I got my hot little hands on it!! 
Hope you are getting on with the planning your festive season :)

anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥


Christmas is a time for making memories

WOO HOO it is officially the start of Christmas.... In my opinion.  I usually wait until after my birthday in October to even begin to start thinking anything Christmas!  Today I have kicked of the season with a CAS Christmas card with the obligatory glitter and Christmas tree! A rather quick design and you can make a few at a time.
Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products that I have used in the shop so head on over and have a look.


WOW with Mudra stamps

I was quite excited when Scrapbook Boutique started stocking Mudra stamps!!  My lovely friend and fellow DT colleague Linda is on their design team and she is wowing me with her gorgeous designs!! I was really impressed with these stamps! They stamp really well and there is lots of variety and themes to choose from.
I went with the pattern builder and I love it.  As usual, this card started out so differently in my mind..... and as usual it did a 180 and ended up completely different. I went with the Hero Arts Shadow ink pad for this card. I love watching the ink get darker and fuller.  I found the MISTI was essential with this card. One, because the Hero Art's Shadow inks always freak me out as I think I haven't stamped properly, I can re-stamp ( and placate my OCD) and be assured I have the correct placement every single time and two, by moving my card stock using the grids on the MISTI, I have nice even placement. Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique and you can check out all the Mudra stamps as well as all the details on this card.

thanks for popping in :)
