Sweet Stampin Challenge DT card


Well howdy folks!

It has been a while since I have made a card a posted on my blog which I was missing big time, I have joined in with a couple of card swaps on Facebook but what better a way to get back into it so I am back where it all started all those years ago...I am back on the Sweet Stampin design team.

What a pure chance conversation that was...and I am so pleased to be back.

So after buying loads of new stamps I now have a reason to use them again.  This was just a quick card using a large stamp from Colorado Craft Company which I inked up and embossed with starry night sparkle embossing powder.

I die cut the square (one of my new dies) and layered it onto back card...think that makes it stand out.

I rubbed some distress ink over some of the image, stamped the sentiment and added some gems and pearls to finish.

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog for this weeks challenge which is "last minute Christmas", the challenge will run for 2 weeks, so get those last minute cards posted.

Have a Merry Little Christmas...

 Hi everybody, I hope you are all well.

I made this card for the card swap over on the Dies to Die For Facebook group.

Although it looks quite plain and simple, it actually took me a bit longer than I planned as I had to line up the words and tape them in place.

I die cut the words and stuck different coloured card on the back, I stamped one of the sentiments and die cut the little poinsettia which is also part of the die set.
