Dashing Through the Snow!

Another of the cards from my recent class using Serene Snowflakes and Dasher. Lots of bling on the antlers to add a bit of sparkle. The white craft ink from Stampin Up really is the best ink I have come across, even on dark card it stays really white. Dasher is battling his way through a blizzard here as are some parts of the UK! In Kent we just have a little scattering of snow that will be gone by lunch time, but more is on the way!

Hope you stay safe and warm today.
Thanks for looking

Serene Snowflakes

Here is one of the cards we made at my last class. Using the divine Serene Snowflakes set, we stamped onto acetate (needed a steady hand) with White Stazon. I love this new organza ribbon as well, only £5.75 for over 13 metres, a bargain!

The colour scheme of red and Crumb Cake (Kraft as we used to know it) works great for Christmas but with a bit of a modern twist. Will be back later this week with a couple more projects from this class.

Thanks for looking

Things that go bump!

Here is my seasonal offering for Halloween, slightly late I know!

I don't have any specific Halloween stamps so looked at my stash and came up with the Gothic swirl from Baroque motifs and the little bird (crow?) from live your dream. I had a go at sponging a night sky with pumpkin pie, so saffron, and chocolate chip inks with the moon in the back ground. I should have removed the mask over the moon before I stamped the swirl but will remember for next time.

Overall I was very happy how it turned out.

Thanks for looking and I will be back later with some Christmas Cards.
