Christmas Trees

My first Black Friday purchases arrived yesterday ... so had to use them, else I will have to wait for next Christmas.

Some lovely shimmer on the white tree with Nuvo glitter gloss and Glossy Accents on the hearts, and white enamel accents on the green trees.

Confetti Macarons

Mixing up some more old and new stamp sets.

Although the confetti stamp is not officially a turnaround stamp, I stamped and rotated the confetti 3 times.

I added Tonic Nuvo Glitter Gloss to add some sparkle to the tag.

Island Nativity

I love this set from WPlus9 ... Christmas in the original atmosphere. Plus with the palm trees, they could also give an island feel (coconut trees) which is wonderful when sending cards from Mauritius.

I coloured the background with Distress Inks as watercolour. The rest was done with Copics.

Year in Review - June

I love the colours of the June challenge of Altenew Inspiration Challenge. 

I combined some of my "older" stamps with my new ones. So happy to use my new Leaf Medallion set. The dots are from the Happy Dreams set and the Circled Sentiment Set.

I added glossy accents to make the circles pop.

A Cool Christmas

When you're sweltering on a tropical island, it's easy to wish for a cool and frosty Christmas.

This is my card for the CASology Challenge with the cue word NORTH. As this is a 2 week challenge, you have another week in which to submit your card.

There is quite a bit of dimension with the tags  ...

... and I have some inset dies, and some with the glitter paper from below shining through.

You can pop on over to the rest of the design team to see their inspiring designs.

Inked Flora

Today I'm taking a break from Christmas projects and going back to florals. I love the sketchy feel to this stamp set.

Joyful Christmas

When I've cut my die cuts from a fixed shape instead of getting many close together, I can use the negative space too. This is the negative of THIS card.

Going with cool frosty colours.

Embossed Baubles

If you haven't got any 3-D embossing folders, perhaps this is the first one you should get - Creative Expressions Sublime Swirls. It's a beauty. And so versatile.

Adding shimmer with Nuvo Glitter Gloss.
