Bringing Home the Tree!

This is a really quick post or I am going to miss one of the challenges I want to enter!


This gorgeous, gorgeous stamp is by Clarity and I absolutely love it!  The sentiment is Clarity too.  They are both stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear detail powder.  The mats are made using Spellbinders dies and the background card is embossed with a mask to look like snow and I painted all the dots with clear Wink of Stella.  I added lots of white glitter to the main image and around the white edges and the snowflakes are silver sequins.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Clarity Stamp  - Travel
Ink on my Fingers - To use Black
A Little Bit Crafty - Clean and Simple
Time Out Challenges - Embossing and Sparkle

These are all fabulous blogs, please pop over and have a look!

Thank you so much for visiting me - your visits and comments are appreciated so much!  Have a lovely weekend and take care!  Christine xxx

The sparkly monochrome is fabulous with this image, Chris ... I love how the curves on the framing mimic the curved wings of this wonderful old car! So delighted you played along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

Fabulous Chris, reminds me of when I was young and we used to go and cut our tree down, we had a car like that too! Susan x

Just goes to show, less is more sometimes and you don't always need to use lots of stamps/embellishments/colours to make an elegant card. Good luck in the Clarity Challenge
