Winter Wonderland

That time has come round again that I'm tackling the making of lots of money envelopes for Christmas gifts.

I decided to make them a little larger this year.

To make them you need a piece of card measuring 73/4" x 6".  Score at 21/2" and again at 6", fold and you are done !  Just choose your decorations.

I fell in love with Heidi Swapp's Winter Wonderland Collection when I saw it.  The Ephemera is especially gorgeous.



Have a great day !  We are off to see the Christmas light switch on later - let the festivities begin !

Thank's for popping by

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes !




Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Starry Starry Night Challenge !


It's Wednesday and


Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !

Anything Goes!

The Design Team are this week showcasing Penny Black products. 
If you have any of these products we would love you to use them but if not, please still join in !!

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a fabulous $50 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Store !









I used different card/paper for stamping the images for these cards.  The red card I used Neenah and the green card I used Ranger Speciality Stamping Paper.  I do like the finish better on the green card but found that the clear stamp stuck fast to it during stamping even after preparing the stamp !  The ink also took a while to dry.  The stamping does look pretty crisp in real life.

You can see a list of everything I used below !


We hope you can join us in our Challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Pure Joy

My love for the new Memory Box Christmas stamps lives on !

This is a large card, larger than I usually make anyway !  It measures 6"x6".  I can't believe I used to make this size all the time !

I spent hours watercolouring this card but feel it was worth it, I love it.

In my paint palette I have Daniel Smith "Neutral Tint".  I find this perfect for "dulling down" some colours, such as the crimson and using instead of black, which can be too harsh sometimes.  I also use it for shadows and depth.  I would recommend adding this to your palette.

I die cut the sentiment a few times from scraps of white card and added the final gold layer on top for dimension.  

For the edges I rubbed the ink pad over the edges of the card and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  A few sprinkles of Perfect Pearls Gold and a few gold sequins and the card was finished.



This card was pure joy to make and practice my watercolouring !

Thank's for popping by !
