Merry Christmas!

I am back from an absolutely fabulous trip to India ;-) India has been on my bucket list for years and I can't tell you how amazing it was! We visited lots of places and loved every minute of it :-)

Anyhoos, I had better get onto the real reason for this post ;-)

I made a set of cards using a new STAMPtember®  'Merry Christmas Clear Stamp' 

I used a Simon's Exclusive Lots Of Snowflakes stamp set and a Soft Navy ink pad to create the background and for the Merry Christmas text I silver heat embossed to give a lovely shimmery glimmer. I finished with a few crystal gems for extra sparkle ;-)

I finished the insides to make them a little bit extra special

Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a lovely evening and a great weekend! :-)

Simon Says: Anything Goes

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Anything Goes 

This week we are showcasing Spellbinders Products.  You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used a Seth Apter  Robo Rings Die Set and Gridiron Embossing Folder

I started by embossing a piece of watercolor paper with the Gridiron Folder and then splattered with Black Marble, Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest Dylusions Inks before blending Hickory Smoke ink over the top. I layered the Robo Rings, cut out of black cardstock and then popped on a lovely butterfly to finish :-) I wanted the butterfly to have some feelers and as they didn't come with the butterfly dies I cut those on a Silhouette Cameo,  a very handy tool to have let me tell you ;-)

I am on my way home from my trip to India so I will catch up with you all soon ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
