Shining a light for Christmas

 

Sorry for mentioning Christmas but OMG it is creeping closer and closer and I really need to make a start on my cards!! You may start to see a few more cards with less flowers on too because the postal charges at the moment are simply shocking for bulky cards (breaks my heart at the thought).

I am sharing my DT card for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and I am really happy with it (woohoo). Our theme this week is …

GLIMMER AND SPARKLE

You all know how much I love a bit of bling so I am rather happy!!!!! All of the DT are using products by Lindy’s Stamp Gang so make sure you have a look for some inspiration and info about these scrummy products.

01-10.12 

Here is one of my favourite Whiff of Joy stamps for Christmas. I always really love colouring her. I have used a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noirs. See pic below for colours.

01-10.12a

You can just see a little bit of one of the gorgeous exclusive Simon Says Stamp dies here, they are so detailed and pop out of the dies so easily.

01-10.12b

Here you can see the lovely foiling on my Kaiser papers. I really do think I am addicted to Kaiser – they just tick all the boxes for what I expect from a paper pad.

01-10.12c 

….and here is some rather delicious shimmer and sparkle from my Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray.

Pens used:

01-10.12d   01-10.12e
