Oooh I just love this funky snowflake by Simon Says Stamp !  I also love the Twinklets I covered it with, you should see the sparkle in real life !

I treated myself to the gold and silver embossing pastes from Simon Says Stamp and I used the gold one on this card together with the falling snow stencil.  The paste doesn't look anything special when its in the jar but as it dries, it works it magic and dries to a beautiful metallic gold colour (how you would expect it to look !!).  It just adds so much texture and interest and as you can see, you don't have to use it on plain card.

You can see a list of everything else I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !


Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !

Merry and Bright

Good morning ! I'm here today to share a card I made a few days ago. 

 I have seen a lot of wreath cards being made and remembered a die set I bought last year and used bits a pieces of but never actually made a wreath from it !

I die cut a big circle first and placed the leaves around it so I got a good circle shape.  I think I managed to achieve it quite well seeing as I'm not usually too good at doing things like this !



I just love this Authentique paper "Seasons : Winter".  It's full of blues, greys and lilac/purples.  I used lots of Picket Fence Stickles on it for the snowy effect.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed a piece of heat resistant acetate and then cut around it and placed it on the snowflake with a glue dot.

That's me for today.  I'm hoping to get some crafty time in later unless the call of a good film, roaring fire and snuggling on the sofa calls louder !!

I am entering CAS-ual Fridays and Curtain Call again with my card.



Have a great Sunday !
