It was one of those weeks again when all the good crafting intentions just didn't happen, and I'm just getting round to show another card from last weekend.
I don't know about you, but I often buy a magazine just for the free stamps - they might come in handy, or so I tell myself, but more often they sit un-inked. This snow globe is from a set from last year and it fit perfectly over the Inkylicious Winter Cabin. Glossy Accents and lots of glitter to the base, popped up with foam pads. The background is an old Papermania stamp and then a sprinkling of Chunky White embossing enamel to finish.
Well that's another for the box, but the little bell means it won't post.
Just a quick post, and hopefully I be around to do some catching up.

One of my favorite images, and I must admit it comes out every year, is this Stampendous Snowy Postcard, along with the Greetings stamp, I've added the Tim Holtz holly sprig from the Thinlits Festive Greens along with the Christmas handwritten greetings die. Almost flat apart from the pearls, so hopefully it will do for the posting pile! A nice easy card to get the Christmas mojo working.
Just need to keep the momentum going now - so off to play again,

We have Flonzcraft as our Sponsor for this challenge and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I've used a Christmas Greetings from Flonzcraft for my card. I started by dipping some card into Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter stains mixed with Ice Spruce Distress ink, it has a lovely sheen, which of course doesn't show in the photo. I stamped using Ice Spruce DI, and on a spare piece of the card, stamped the Christmas Greeting again. I coloured the robins and holly with DI's.
I also stamped and cut a Tim Holtz holly spray with Peeled Paint DI, heat embossed with clear EP before colouring with DIs.
The rest of the DT have some wonderful inspiration, so please pop over here where you will find all the details of the challenge, but don't forget, we are a stamping challenge and your stamping must follow the challenge theme.
Well, that's another one for the box, but I think I need to make a few more.

The background was cut from a masterboard that had been dipped in various blue inks with some random music script stamped in Chipped Sapphire. I randomly stamped a snowflake with Versamark and brushed on some Perfect Pearls -very difficult to see in the photo, before matting on silver card.
I used my finger to spread adhesive on the acetate snowflake before covering with a filament type glitter that has been in my stash for ages, this was attached to another cut from vellum. I added a self adhesive rhinestone to the center, which when I've looked at the photo has disappeared! (this card was a nightmare to photograph, so I won't edit it). The sentiment was cut from the Tim Holtz Holiday words.
The weather forecast isn't too good for the weekend, so hopefully I'll get some more Christmas cards in the box.

Hello, and thanks for popping in, today sees the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight it's Trees are Green? but it's up to you - they can be any colour you want!
I've used my new Tim Holtz Tree line die for this quick Christmas card, layering it up 3 times over an inky background. I added a torn piece of embossed card, ran some StarDust stickles on the edge, die cut greeting and holly, quick and fairly flat for posting.
The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over here, where you will also find all the details.
I am sharing this at :
