Simply 'Merry Christmas'

Christmas is just around the corner and I was still in need
of more Christmas cards so...
I got out my old Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil
to use as a background for my CAS card.

It's the last Challenge of the Year at
and it's our
This is where you use pencils,markers,watercolours,brushes, inks
anything that Makes a Mark. You get the drift!
I used White Texture Paste on my stencil background
  and some Arctic White Lustre Powder (Thanks Kylie)
on white card stock shadowed by red 
on my Merry Christmas Die from
CUTplorations and attached to vellum.

Hope you get time to play with us this week
and I see you in our Gallery.

A 'Sweet' Sundae

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.

It's a Christmas 'Deer'

Hello and Welcome to today's post for

It's time for our Anything Goes with Dies Challenge
and as it is December - a Christmas card is called for.
I went CAS here choosing Kraft card stock.
I painted a white background with texture paste
then added some big grungy snowflakes
from STAMPlorations Art Marks
 with smaller snowflakes with the rubber end 
of a pencil and a few tiny splats using
Hero Arts White Pigment Ink.
Added some coloured snowflakes from SU
in Memento Teal Zeal.
My deer is from Crafts4U cut from
brown card stock and then
heat embossed clear.
Sentiment is from
inked in Marvy Timeless Sepia also clear heat embossed.
This was all cut from a stitched die and attached
to Kraft card stock.

Pop over and see how my Team Mates
used their dies and come join us for our last
Die Challenge for the Year.
