I hope you are all well? A big warm welcome to my new followers! It's so great to have you close by! I hope you will enjoy my posts... x
I have a very quick post for you today, possibly two quick posts, if you're lucky ;)
I have been wanting to join the new Craft Stamper November challenge: 'Use a non Christmas stamp to create a Christmas themed image!'
First, I made a card where I created a tree, white embossed on a light gorgeous purple Brusho background. By the time I finished the card it looked like a work of a school kid that made a card for his Mummy with no Christmas stamps! BECAUSE it wasn't made with a Christmas stamp! Off to bin it went... I don't give up easily though so I made a wreath with the stamp... nope! It looked ok, but it wasn't ME! Back to the drawing board!
In the end I came up with a totally different design which I would like to share with you today and I hope you will appreciate the fact that it wasn't created using a Christmas stamp.
I'm not sure I'm liking my photos now that they are 500px wide! What do you think? Here's the one in original size about 800kb:
So much better, right?:)
The stamp I used to create my pine branch is from the Avery Elle stamp set Petals & Stems. It's tiny and adorable. I used three Memento inks in green colours. The baubles were die cut out of my Brusho-ed paper, I left the pieces in and used the Diamond stickles to highlight the swirls. The pine branch was stamped over the front panel which was then propped up with some dimensional tape. It's a fairly simple yet effective card, I think! I hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by! I have some lovely (well, I think it is, but I'll let you to be the judge of that!) Christmas vintage tag for you. I also have another Christmas card so don't forget to come back soon! I'm off to get ready for my interview so must dash! ;)
Oooh, before I go!! I am looking for a nice gold embossing powder. I don't want anything dark gold, green gold, ugly gold, I want pretty light gold opaque kind of gold embossing powder. Any tips?
Have a great day!
