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
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
