Twinkle, Twinkle

The challenge at Try It On Tuesday this time is " Twinkle Twinkle" so we would like to see lots of twinkling stars this time.  For my card I have used the large star from Stampin Up Star of light stamp set and two of the wording stamps from the same set.  I have used my very last piece of the lovely pearlised blue card for this ,all embossing in detail silver, mounted onto a piece of silver glitter card and the three small stars punched from glitter card too.  I used the stitched oblong die from The Christina Collection from Craft Stash, could not believe how many dies are in this set and they cut beautifully too ( only arrived today but I had to try them out straight away !)

Winter Tree

Time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month it is Winter Trees and Flora. There is a fabulous prize from Stix2 for the lucky winner so get stamping for a chance to win.  As we are a stamping challenge the  main focus of your entry must be stamping, a large wording stamp is acceptable but not a small sentiment added as an afterthought.
This is the prize from Stix2

For my card I have used a new to me stamp from Penny Black called Restful.  I like the fact it is a large stamp that nicely fills a 6 x 6 card. I stamped it first in Archival brown ink and then coloured the background with pan pastels, love that they make a colourful background so quickly. I stamped the stag (Inkylicious) in the same archival ink, did have to stamp it twice to make sure the fence wasn't showing though(what did I do before I got my Misti ?) just added a little white gel pen to some of the branches and raided the old peel off stash for a glittery star.

Snow much fun

1st December and our challenge at Christmas Sparkles has been chosen by Sandra who has asked for snowman, one or many !  I've chosen this Crafters Companion happy chappy and added his banner with gifts and stocking hanging from it, coloured with promarkers.  Finished off with a Merry Christmas stamp. Hope you are all ready with your Christmas cards and have time to join in our challenge.
