and happy Sunday everyone. I sincerely hope that any little visitors you may have had last night were the nice (and not the naughty!) kind.
well fresh from yesterday's craft class, I came home with Christmas cards still an agenda item so carried on and made a couple more, and here's one of them.
Inspired by the current sketch #no 210 over at Freshly made sketches
but as am still having trouble with operating a camera my photograph is not perfect by any manner of means but the best I could manage... Must really brush up on my photography skills - thanks so much Michelle for the recent hints and tips - could not have come at a better time! I so so needed them!
A vellum topper on some Pool Party card stock (yes.. another outing for my Home for Christmas card stock pack.!) Just love this and have used so much of it for my 'C-word' cards this year! Some gorgeous snowflakes punched from the absolute Wow that is Stampin' Up!'s Silver glimmer card.. In my book this is foolproof glittering without the pain of it ending up everywhere but where you want it!
I stamped a couple of 'renditions' of Gorgeous Grunge and my 'Merry Christmas' using White craft ink on the Pool Party card stock first - left it for absolutely ages to make sure it was completely dry - then using my Stamp-a-majig I used the same stamps again, but this time in Metallic Silver, on top of the vellum, but slightly offset to hopefully give a hint of a white shadow effect below, which hopefully you can just make out!
I threaded my snowflakes on to some silver wire and suspended the 3 tiny stars, courtesy of the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack, below them
I love how it turned out and hope you do too.
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used
Well, somewhat spurred on by today's venture into all things photographic will endeavour to repeat the process tomorrow for a couple of other items from the craft class, if I can.
til next time - and in case you are wondering or are at all concerned - I did read this somewhere and am sure it must be true so will leave you with this thought
'A cluttered desk is a sign of genius'
well all I can say is, mine is very cluttered!
bye til next time
