Merry Christmas

I've been busy making our Christmas cards in between some travel.  This year I made 85 cards using Altenew's Sketched Evergreen stamps

Each card started with the tree being embossed in gold.  To be honest I went through my Christmas stash of paper for two of the cards.  One I made the background using MFT's snowflake background stamp.  The image was stamped with veramark then I clear embossed the image

I want to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and the very best in 2018!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

My Friends are Flakes

I made a few cards using this image from Impression Obsession; I hate to confess how long it went uninked at my house!

The image is stamped with versa mark onto water colour paper then embossed in gold.  I then water coloured the image in non traditional colours

Merry Christmas!!

Delicate Peony

I've been "collecting" so many stamps and dies over the past while (ok years) and I'm finally getting them inked!  For todays cards I used Birch Presses Delicate Peony stamp and die which I purchased at my local scrapbooking store BUT Simon Says Stamps also carries it.

The first two layers of the flowers are stamped with abandoned coral then wild honey distress inks.  The third layer was stamped with candied apple distress inks then embossed with angel wings gold embossing powder.  The leaves are stamped with twisted citron then peeled paint distress inks.  I then used the corresponding dies to cut the flowers.   For the back ground I used broken china and wild honey distress inks then blotted with a damp micro fibre cloth.  The layer was then cut with MFT's Wonky Stitch dies.  The sentiment is from MFT's Because you.

I used the same back ground on the inside and again used the wonky stitch dies and a sentiment from the Because you set.

Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you have a fabulous day!!
