Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas...


Hi folks,

Well some news today, I have been asked to join the DT team over on the Stamping Sensations Blog which I am so chuffed about and here's my first card.  The theme is Christmas in easy is that with Christmas fast approaching.

For my card I cut a piece of watercolour card and stamped the snowflake background with versamark ink and then white embossed it (love this technique).  I then randomly added some colour using watercolour ink and swooshed it around. Once it was dry I added a piece of washi tape in a contrasting colour, this is the first time I have used washi tape and I quite like it. I then stamped up some trees with coordinating ink and die cut them and layered them on top of the washi tape strip.  I stamped a coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set....and the usual sequins, gems and pearls to finish, hope you like it.

Pop over to the Stamping Sensations blog to check out what my teamies have made to share.
