Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
Hello my lovely friends and
visitors, I hope you are having a lovely Easter time. I have played some more with this gorgeous
stamp set I love them! This time I went
the traditional route and created a Christmas card with this set and here is my
It's an A5 card!
Not too deep so good for posting
Some of that gorgeous shimmer will be on view soon!
The bits that look a little white are the shimmer!
You can see it a bit better above
Taa-daa the bling shot, I was so happy after I took this photo:
I captured the bling for a change lol!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I got to use up a lot of
snippets and some rather old card and patterned paper. The green and gold card must be more than ten
years old and I don’t think the paper is that much younger. The green card and snippet of patterned paper
were from Craftwork Cards. The gold card:
I have no idea where or when I purchased that.
The resin embellishments in the middle of the poinsettias must be about
the same age too. The stamps and the
twine are new. The stamps were a recent
blog hop win from the lovely Virginia (Winnie & Walter) and the twine is
from my House of Cards team mateRuza: mwah
huni! I won
some stamps and twine from her blog candy.
Unusually I am happy with the
photographs because some of the shimmer from the Spectrum Twinkle pens is
visible and I am not sure how I managed that either. I have had different brands of sparkle pens
over the many years I have been paper crafting and these are, so far, my
favourite, you can add as little or as much as you want and I can say that as I
only own the clear overlay pens. The
Spectrum Sparkle colour pens are on my wish list lol! I used my Spectrum Aqua pens to colour my
stamped images, my Spectrum AquaTints to create the gorgeous inky panel, and
Spectrum Twinkle to make this a little special and sparkly. Christmas is the one time of the year that I
am happy to add more sparkle lol!
Thank you so much for taking
the time to visit and comment. I really
do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn
