Hi there - Christmas is fast approaching and I am now doubling up on my cards. This was a card I really had fun with. I finally got myself some Stampin Up's Iridescent Ice and wanted to heat emboss it with this Christmas tree stamp from CTMH's Holiday Wishes stamp set. I was feeling inspired by the song 'Oh Christmas Tree' and I am entering it in The Paper Variety's FALALALALA Challenge this week. I am also entering this in Sparkle Creations Christmas Cards Challenge - One Layer.
Something new I tried this time was spritzing the seam binding ribbon with water and crunching it up in a ball and letting it dry. Love how that turned out.
Stamps: CTMH Holiday Wishes
Ink: Stampin Up Night of Navy
Paper: Stampin Up Night of Navy cs
Accessories: Stampin Up Iridescent Ice, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, Eyelet Border punch

Hi - quick post of card my daughter asked me to make for 'a friend' at school. I tried to keep it non frilly as the 'friend' is a boy she has gone to school with for a few years.
I used this weeks Deconstructed Sketch No. 29.
The deer is a digital image from the Hero Arts Children's Christmas set. I thought he was soooo cute. The paper is Echo Park's Wintertime and those adorable little gems are Red Swirl Skittles from Your Next Stamp.
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo, Fired Brick
accessories: Glossy Accents, Sakura Black Gloss pen, YNS Red Swirl Skittles, Inksentials Enamel Accents White and Black, MS punch, ribbon from stash
