Card of the Week

All my friends are flakes!  This little snowman has been stamped four times with Tuxedo Black Memento and coloured with Copic Markers.  We used a JOY stamp from A Muse but you can personalize it by using an Alphabet Set.  To finish it off a little Stickles  Frosted Lace glitter glue, a little sponging around the edge with Sky Blue Memento and some bling!

This one is a spinner card.  Watch the snowman spin around along the top of the card.  So cool!

Card of the Week

Here's a contemporary Christmas card for a change of pace. Using one of my favourite, a mixed font 'Merry Christmas' stamp from DeNami Design and a small single poinsettia stamp from Magenta.  Although we couldn't resist using a little bling, what really makes this card are the handmade embellishments.  Using a paper trimmer,  shave thin pieces of metallic gold cardstock and simply curl them around a pencil.  The paper curls are adhered to the card then the poinsettias are foam taped on top to give them dimension.

Card of the Week

Ceci has done it again! The picture does not do justice to this card! She started with a beautiful tone aqua card, mounted a piece of the latest 'Crystalline' paper from Memorybox.  On a white panel she stamped the Peace Dove Collage, then used a Dreamweaver stencil and paste to add the swirl over top and covered it with Celedon glitter. The edges have been done with Distress Ink to echo the design of the paper.  Stunning!
