Christmas Joy…..

29 Oct

Good Morning Blog Friends…

I had such a busy week at work, I feel like I haven’t had much time to relax and create.  It is a beautiful sunny day here in Halifax and I have quite a bit to do today but I wanted to spend some time this morning playing along with a couple of challenges.

I made a card for this weeks featured stamper on SplitCoast Stampers.   This week we have the honor of CASEing Deborah Saaranen.  Her gallery is fantastic and full of wonderful inspiration!  I had a tough time picking just one card!  Here is the card I finally forced myself to decide on…  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1833050?&cat=500&ppuser=80680  Simply Gorgeous isn’t it????

Here’s what I came up with….

I bought this stamp set by Creative Concepts a while back and haven’t had much opportunity to ink it up but with Christmas fast approaching I thought I had better get a move on and start making some cards!  I stamped the image with VersaFine and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  I used Tombo marker to color in the image and added stickles and glitter to give it some shimmer.  Here’s a look at the whole card….

I made the flower using plain white card stock and my ek Dimensional Dahlia Punch, adding a gem to the center.    Here’s another closer look…

Thanks so much Deborah for the wonderful inspiration!

As always, I love hearing from you and truly appreciate your comments 🙂

Have a fantastic Day!

Lisa 🙂
