I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring this year..... and have made two cards
First up.... classic black and white
Used my Cuttlebug embossing folder ~ Textile, some Spellbinders circles, scallops and tags. Finished with a classic Congratulations stamp from Hero Arts.
Second card used stamps from Hero Arts and Darkroom Door.
I stamped up the Hero Arts Luscious Ledger I won on Joy's blog... with some Brushed Corduroy distress ink and stamped it onto some card I had distressed with Scattered Straw and Milled Lavender inks. I then distressed another piece of card and stamped the Darkroom Door stamp. Both were matted with Mulled Wine card stock and added to the white base card. Added ribbon and gems to finish off.
I certainly don't expect to get through to the top 20 - I mean, look at all the stunning cards in the gallery ~ but I gave it a go and enjoyed the trying.
Don't expect to get too much stamping done this weekend ( but you never know!) as I have to give the place a through cleaning... as we are hosting our Family Group Mid Winter Christmas Pot Luck dinner here tomorrow night. About 8 people plus ourselves... and the weather has certainly turned to winter today with the wild forecast for tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by...
