I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge - November Challenge


This is my card for this month's challenge on CRAFTERS COMPANION MONTHLY CHALLENGE which this month has a theme of:-

FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO

I chose blue and silver.  I used Humphrey's Corner Mistletoe kisses stamp for the image and sentiment coloured with Spectrum Noirs.  The vellum background is made using the mistletoe stamp on the same stamp sheet stamped with versamark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  The flower in the corner is a large pointsetta and medium 8 petal flower stamps from Stamps By Chloe stamped onto vellum and embossed also with silver embossing powder.  I then coloured the back of the vellum with DG3 Spectrum Noir pen to make leaves.

Such a stunning card, love the way you've used the vellum, I'm now trying to think what poinsettia stamps I have so that I can have a go at something similar - thank you so much for the inspiration!
