Christmas Poinsettia

Hi there, I have a quick post tonight to share a card I just made. After a full weekend of work and nanny duties, I decided some 'colouring in' to help wind down.

I have a new Penny Black stamp from the brushstroke collection called Christmas Red. I was a little intimidated to use it so I went all out and even used a technique that I'm not comfortable with. No line colouring.

I used my MISTI to stamp the image with antique linen ink. My polychromo pencils were used to create the outlines and then blended my colouring with gamsol and blending stump. You won't be able to see it in this photo but I also covered the whole thing with glitter using a Spectrum Noir pen.
I fussy cut the poinsettia then used a guillotine to give it a nice edge. I stamped the sentiment (using my MISTI), then poped up the poinsettia with foam tape.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Penny Black Saturday Challenge (Sparkle and Shine), Penny Black and More (Flowers), My Time to Craft (Christmas Flowers), Day of the Month Cart Club (Poinsettia Day)

Thanks for popping in today. Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas! I hope you have a magical day :)

Challenge me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton

Hello everyone! Once again, I am joining Michelle with her yearly Christmas Card Challenge. Michelle has guest designers who challenge her to create a 'particular' type of Christmas card and we all create something as well. 

I challenged Michelle to create a 'Humourous' card.

Here is mine -

I sort of panicked when I started looking through my stash because I really don't have any humourous Christmas sets, LOL. So, I had to get a little creative. 
I stamped Santa (he always makes me laugh because of his 'whatever' look) and coloured him with my polychromos. I have a really nice stamp set by PTI which allows you to create letters to Santa. I decided that the recipient of this card would be on his naughty list. 

Don't forget to pop on over to Michelle's blog to see her funny card!

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges:
Sisterhood of Crafters (Christmas), Try It On Tuesday (Christmas is coming), Crafty Cardmakers (Christma), Christmas Crafts All Year Round (Santa, Mrs Claus, or Elves). STAMPlorations (Anything CAS Goes + optional Christmas Colours)

HLS December CAS Challenge

Welcome! Today kick's off the CAS challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. Even though it's stinking hot here in Australia, we have a theme that will help cool things down :)

My card was stamped with a snowflake from HLS Let it Snow. I stamped the sentiment with versafine ink then embossed it with clear powder.

I hope to see you plaing over at the challenge blog!
