Tree Trimmings

Hello blog friends!  I realise I haven't posted for a few days, but it's been so hectic here.  I can't complain as I've been out for two Christmas lunches and two Christmas parties!  I am sooooo tired!
I just wanted to show you the card I made for my craft group friends:
The stamps are a brilliant set from Stampin Up! called Tree Trimmings.  You can't see it very well in the photo, but I've stamped each bauble and heat embossed them, just with clear embossing powder to add a bit of shine, but then I've added glitter with my Quickie Glue Pen, so the ornaments sparkle beautifully.  I've added some tiny gems to the top of each bauble (from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Note to self - order some more, they're fabulous!)
The background paper is MME Snowed In, and the colours match my inks perfectly.  I was so pleased as it was complete chance.  I stamped the baubles, then started hunting round for paper so was delighted to see how well these went together. I've used my inverted corner punch (my new favourite toy) and added a gem in each corner.  I popped on some ribbon and then drew round the square labels die and cut out another piece of card which I just coloured with my Henna Promarker, a lovely rich chocolate colour. 
Everyone in the group made a card for everyone else.  I sat opening mine when I got in and was thrilled with them all.  It made me realise how important card making is to me, and how wonderful it is to be with a group of people who appreciate this craft as much as I do.  Thankyou ladies, you are a talented bunch!
Thanks for dropping in today.  I'm sure you're well ahead with the Christmas present buying and wrapping, right?
Have a great weekend,
Jane xx

  5. Done with the shopping, but I still have to wrap. Keeping with a green theme, however, I bought a bunch of the reusable fabric shopping bags--some in bright green and some in bright red and these will be my wrappings. Makes it an easy job, saves all that paper, and adds a little extra to the gift.

  6. Lovely card Jane I love this stamp set..stunning colour combination
