Christmas Skaters

Love this sweet little image of a couple skating. Its a rubber stamp by Beach Bum Stamps. 
I stamped it in versafine and layered onto green card and DCWV backing paper. Added ribbon sentiment, punched snowflakes and bling in snowflake centres.

Have Just updated my blog editor (its probably been available for ages....i'm  soo slow on the uptake) so just having a little play.

Have a good weekend
thanks for peeking

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 74

The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is to make something which is based on a Song Title/Lyric. So out came one of my all time favourite Christmas Penny Black Stamps ( although I think I say that every time I use a PB stamp)Here is Jingle All The Way.


Stamped image in versafine ink and coloured with Copics. Added Glitter glue for twinkling snow. Layered onto doodlebug card and then on to DCWV backing paper. Over stamped backing paper with white liquid chalk snowflakes. Added punched out snowflakes (beautiful Martha Stewart punch) and added buttons.

Here (above) is a little close up to show the lovely Doodlebug backing card and the large snowflake is the Martha Stewart punch

A Couple of Lil' Christmas Cards

Here's a couple of cards I made last week towards my Christmas box.(still need to do a lot more to catch up though)
First up is this little Penny Black stamp that is just soooo cute. Stamped and coloured with copics and layered onto green card and DCWV backing papers. Added glitter, ribbon, buttons and the Stamps Away sentiment layered onto a nestability circle.
This next card is also a Penny Black stamp that I've had for a long time. I stamped and coloured with copics cut the wreath out and put Chrystal lacquer on it to make it shine. I layered it onto the front of the card and just added the ribbon and sentiment to keep it simple.

Have a nice day

Santa stamp

Made a few cards this last week, so hopefully will get around to posting a few of them this coming week. Here is the first and probably my most favourite. Its a stamp by Rubber Stampede called Santa Collage. I stamped him in versa colour vintage sepia,picking out some detail with a bit of glitter and then layered onto gold mirror card (it is for Christmas!) the backing papers are DCWV and the sentiment is Stamps Away which is also a favourite of mine. I added some sepia inked swirls to the backing paper and picked some out in gold glitter too plus ribbon to finish.

Thanks for looking,have a good Monday
