Stampin' Up! Ornamental Pine.

The smell of pine whether from the tree or wreaths or ornaments is a real christmas sensation and this stamp set really sums christmas up.

I used stampin' up! smoky slate ink which is a lovely soft grey for the sentiments rather than black which I really like. or!/amethystarcrafting for ordering any of my cards.

Stampin' Up! White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white christmas a classic christmas song and this stamp set is nothing like a classic which is why I love it.  Polar bears are one of my favourites and this is a gorgou scene.

I used some icy blue card (pool party from stampin' up!) and some silver coloured card for the mount.  With some sparkles and liquid pearls I just love it. or!/amethystarcrafting to order any of my cards.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Home

There is one stamp in this set that I just adore. Father Christmas and the reindeer flying through the air.  I think I will probably use this stamp in various guises in so many of my christmas cards.

This card used this lovely stamp over a sponged background with a masked moon. Finished with a piece of ribbon it is just a gorgeous christmas scene and I love the sentiment with this set too, from our home to your at christmastime.

Viva Inka Gold wedding card

I have just got my hands on this wonderful product.  It is a glimmer shimmer paint with beeswax in so that it can be buffed when dry to give a really gorgous shine.  It can be painted, rubbed, mixed to create some wonderful looks.

I was asked to do a wedding card so used some of the inka gold to give this card a real wow factor.

It is fantastic on embossing and I used some wet and dry to apply the paint.  I used three colours, platinumn, copper and red, building up the layers and buffing inbetween each coat.  The results are fantastic and was really pleased.

As you know you can purchase any of my cards and have them made especially for whatever occasion and personalised with names of choice.
