Merry Christmas - Lovely as a Tree means another card done ... yeahh..

hello All and a happy Sunday

what are you all  doing with your extra hour then? - Me - well,  probably in common with a lot of us,  means more time for stamps and inks am thinking..?..

and I put it to good use - a  tutorial by the lovely Heather Telford -  as have been meaning to do one of these night sky scenes for ages ..

and here it is - unashamedly and virtually CASE'd wholesale as a result of my following the brilliant step by step instructions Heather has so kindly made available - I just substituted current colours for the ones Heather had used.

Merry Christmas

Must confess to  enjoying all that sponging and the effect it produces though also managed to sponge myself quite well, into the bargain.!

I did resort to making use of a retired  set for my snowflakes - it is one of Shelli's signature collection - Serene Snowflakes which I can't bring myself to part with and still remains my 'go to' set for the odd snowflake or three!

All in all though am so so pleased how it turned out and even for someone like me who does not confess to having much of an artistic eye as it were - I think it worked really well  - what do you all think?

and inside I  just repeated  a 'stamped off', fading to virtually nothing, top and bottom border of more of those lovely snowflakes.

Merry Christmas, sassy salutations

I just love the effect of the overall card.

Or please just contact me if you have any questions or to place an order for you, if you would prefer.

And with this card, well am pleased to say my Christmas card haul has now made it almost to double figures...  another couple to go and we will be there - double figures I mean, not 'there' as in finished.! Still a fair bit to go for that, so not that organised you would probably say and I have to agree.

Come back later in the week and I will have another one for you - as have put my fussy cutting skills to the test  once again - when you get going it can be quite therapeutic I have to say.

with best wishes and have a lovely week everyone.

  1. Hi Jan, I am so glad you found the tutorial helpful and got inspired. Your combination of purple and blue is lovely. I like the continuing theme inside the card too; I rarely manage that.

    1. Dear Heather having newly discovered your site - your cards are truly beautiful - works of art! and really somethg to aspire too. and this one is no exception.. and have to say thanks for paying me a visit and saying such lovely things on my first ever attempt - Jan in the UK x


Thanks very much, everyone. I so much appreciate them all.
