The sun is actually shinning , what am I doing looking at my christmas stash. Not a good thing to do on a hot day. But it was fun. The santa stamp is one if my favourite from Tilda. So easy to colour. The christmas trees are sizzix one used snow write for effect. Heat embossed words and dry embossed background. Loads of different texture going on. Star brad on tag as well. Hope you like it . Enjoy the sun while it lasts . This card is getting entered in

Black and White

May have got this challenge a little bit wrong just wait and see. This is for saturatedcanarychallenge.  
Black white and one other colour. Did my owe take on it, instead of colouring in wanted to heat emboss. Simply sassy stamp I have had for a while . Lets see what you think.


My last card was really pink , gone the other way.  Decided to invest in some of the new magnolia stamps and the papers just hopped into my basket as well.
I distress the butterfly and embossed with Tim Holtz faded jeans ink and powder, did the same on tag. Long time since I used my heat gun. Love the effect . The ribbon and flowers are from wild orchid. Coloured image in with promarker pens. Entering in justmagnolia.blogspot

What horrible weather. But all the better to stay and play with my craft goodies. Being playing with flitter glue thick embossing powder . The image I think is from indigo blu I used some cut and dry foam cover it in flitter glue, then dabbed the image with glue. Let it dry for five minutes then cover stamped image with gold flakes brushed off excess. Did the same with words.
 With the leaf I was watching create and craft when I saw this done took the idea. I inked the leaf then used thick embossing powder. Used my heat gun first time for ages.
The tape at the bottom is Tim Holtz. Used stampendous bronze glitter and gems for bling .
