The weekend is here! Do you have plans? We were going to go to the Excel in London, to the craft show, but we have decided to go shopping locally instead. There are still a few presents we need to get. Anyone that knows me knows that I don't like to leave anything to the last minute.
Well today sees the start of a new challenge on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog and the theme is Traditional Christmas. That is just the right type of challenge for this time of year.
This is quite a CAS card for me. I have been messing around with this style quite a bit this year. I used the large Nativity stamp and sentiment stamp both from Clarity stamps. I made my own mask to do the inking I like getting the inked border around the edge of the top layer. Both stamps were stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a black sparkly powder. I made the mats and layers in traditional colours.
As I said I have been playing around with this design. Here are some of the other ones I made, you could almost play spot the difference.
They are lovely and flat for posting.
I will leave you with the one I chose to use as the challenge inspiration. If you check back on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog tomorrow the winners of the previous challenge Winter Wonderland will be posted.
Having used exclusively Clarity stamps I am entering Challenge 33 on their challenge blog.
Have a great weekend.
