When we were away, I got Nick to make a small detour on the way home (for small, read massive!) to Sir Stampalot which is where I bought this Christmas Usher image by Penny Black - I so love these stamps but only bought one as I don't need any more Christmas stuff! Nick nearly had a fit as it was as I spent just over £40 - he got an instant headache!! I thought I was very restrained! The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Glittered Christmas pad which I bought last year. I coloured the image with my PMs and then added lots of stickles to the image edge and flowers. I followed the current Friday Sketcher's sketch, no 118 for my card which had lots of lovely layering and embellies.
Now I have well over a 100 Christmas cards to make, and there's no way I can make that many with so much matting and layering. So I also used the stamp to make some Clean and Simple versions, stamping directly onto the card blank, with a quick bit of colouring and a sentiment stamp!
I'm sure we'll see some amazing cards with this colour combo - the DT at Colour Create have excelled themselves this week - do go and have a nosy and grab some inspiration!. Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking so you could win something lovely from there!!
