Hi folks!
I thought I'd share some more cards that I created for the Craft Extravaganza in September. Both of these cards use my recently released winter rubber stamp collection available exclusively at The Craft Barn. The image above is 'Mistletoe Kisses' and the one below is 'trimming the Tree'. I have coloured both these cuties with Coloursoft pencils, Sansodor and paper stumps.
The papers are all K&Co from the 'Swell Noel' range. I die cut the corners and sentiments from Funky foam using a Cuttlebug die and alphabet (Fancy Pants). The first card has acetate covering the large round aperture. I punched tiny snowflakes from self adhesive sheets, stuck them to the acetate and then covered them with ultra fine glitter. The card is really twinkly in real life. It's a little difficult to see but the characters are glued to the inside of the card, I was trying to create a snow globe type of effect. The large snowflake is a Cuttlebug die that I embossed using Swiss dots embossing folder. The snowflake brad is by Papermania. Both cards have been finished off using Ribbon.
The Craft Barn are celebrating their first anniversary of their website going live. Hop on over to their Blog. Lots of prizes to be won!

NB. I am so sorry to have to say to the lovely crafters that booked onto my class, 25th October, that due to personal reasons my class will not be going ahead. I am confident that The Craft Barn will provide another exciting class in it's place.
