Break in school holiday happenings to post again to my blog. I'm actually finding myself sitting up after the boys have gone to bed so am getting more creating done than usual.
This is the last of the series of Stampin' Up! Snow Swirled cards I will be doing for the moment. It's been fun focusing on this set over the last month and my regular customers have loved all the cards I have sent through to them. Only a few have made it to my blog, but there's lots more coming over the next few weeks.
I've really enjoyed playing with the non-traditional Christmas colours here. I just love Kraft and Baja Breeze together.
This tree was so easy! I just inked it up in Baja Breeze and then coloured right over the top of each of the starbursts with a Chocolate Chip Stampin Write Marker. I then gave it a huff and a Puff to re-moisten and then stamped onto Very Vanilla.
The Pewter Build a Brad has Chocolate Chip (again I used the marker) on Very Vanilla, and I have also added some brads to the centre of the starbursts. The background starburst on the kraft is stamped with Versmark, and the greeting from Snow Swirled is inked up with the Chocolate Chip marker again. I've use Ski Slope patterned paper for the bit under the image (which has been edged with the Eyelet border) but you could easily use Baja Breeze cardstock or Baja Breeze patterns Designer Series Paper for this step as well. I hope you like this card.
If you would like to purchase any of the supplies to make some of these cards yourself. Just give me a call on 03 97352946 or email me and I can get these supplies delivered to you anywhere in Australia.

A delightful stamper from South Australia, Kathryn Mangelsdorf is holding an even that I have supported along with Stampin' Up!. If you live near Kathryn in Woodside, South Australia, please consider heading along to Kathryn's event to have some stamping fun and to raise some funds for women's cancer prevention and treatment, a cause that is very close to many of us. You can read all about Kathryn's event here.
Thanks for stopping by. Please spare a thought for the people of Samoa and the tourists impacted upon by the Tsunami today. I have been watching the news tonight as I type this and the devastation is horrible.
