Good afternoon, I would like to share a thank you card I have made which is one of a few I have made to say thank you to my friends for there christmas gifts, I am back at home in Portugal and have brought them with me, plus all the family’s gifts too to open on christmas morning, so I thought I would make a start On my thank you cards now. I have used a cute little hedgie from Penny Black it’s from a cling set called HUGS, I stamped him onto one of the majestic square dies from spellbinders, then coloured him with promarkers added a bit of glitter to the flowers, and a couple of sequinsto finish off.

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend, as for me I am full of cold so no more 
 I  wanted to do something different from the norm for me, so I had another go at the heat resistant technique I think you call it, in the past I have not had much success with this technique. The poinsettia stamp is from Penny black Wonder Collection that I stamped with a Versa Mark ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I rubbed  it all over with love letter memento ink pad, I added a bit of yellow to the middles of the poinsettias, then I thought I would paint over it all With distress crackle paint, I don’t think it worked as I can not see much crackle lol, I have had the bottle of crackle for some time so it might be no good, but it has left a lovely all over  finish to my card. I cut two oval shapes from Tonic, one in mirror gold card and one from a bit I had left over from my background and stamped it with Merry Christmas also from Penny black.

After the .

 The other day I was having a look through my christmas stamps and came across this old frame stamp from Rubbadubbadoo, it was one of my first christmas stamps i bought when I first started to make cards back in 2003, I had a shock when I saw the date on the stamp, where has time gone. The snowmen stamp is from Little Claire’s which I coloured with promarkers, and added some glitter to the inside of the frame, , also used is fallen snow embossing folder and spellbinders marvelous squares.
