I have a bit of time up my sleeve as I wait for my granddaughter
to arrive tomorrow to continue her nursing studies.
She is driving down from Cairns and is half way here.
I have just a few house chores in the morning
and am excited to have her rest up here for a day.
She will continue on to stay at my sister's
(a 4 hour drive) for a wee while but will be back
to spend Christmas here.
Now on to a card I made this afternoon for the
I wanted to try out a new stamp for the
emboss resist technique and this wee stamp
from Carabelle Coup de Glace
was just perfect.
I used a mix of products for my resist -
Tim's Distress Festive Berries and
Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry.
Also Brusho's in Brilliant Red/Leaf Green,
a touch of Petal Pink Liquid Pearls for the ice cream
and of course you have to have sprinkles (from Martha Stewart)
on top and falling beside the parfait glass.
Did a wet wash with H2O's around the stamp
which by the way is heat embossed in white.
My sentiment is from my stash and unknown.
I cut my sweets from a postage stamp die
popped on to the next size up and again
adhered to the bigger one and on to
basic white card base.
My mix is Emboss Resist, Stamping, Glitter,
Water colouring and Die Cutting.
Thanks for dropping in
