Sparkle at Christmas...


Last time I was home JT had these big square cards and I loved them. 

So my Ma kindly came up with these scalloped ones. 

Perfect for a full 6x6 stencil... 

I used my new fave stencil.. My Favorite Things.. I love their stencils. 

I obeyed Jenn and Cheiron and started with the light and worked my way out with the darker colours. 

I used a fingertip ink dauber and Distress Inks in Mustard Seed,  Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick. 

I used a Stampers Anonymous stamp for the sentiment,  which then sparked an idea. 

So I broke out the mini Versamark embossing ink pad and put the stencil back down and dabbed the ink in randomly. Then I added some Judikins sparkle powder, heated it up and voila! sparkle just like the sentiment says. 

Here's a close-up... 

Awesome right? 

I love it and it is a special Christmas card for a special person. 

I make special cards for my family. Do you do that too? 

Tonight I am going to dinner with one of my girl tribe and I can't wait to see her. 


p.s On Sunday JT gave me my very own pack of large square cards - yay!


  1. Oh Wowzer!! this is awesome Claire… love how you added that extra special sparkle… and the colours are so pretty… it's a fab design for Christmas card! :-)
    yes I make special cards for my Mum, Daughter and her partner... I enjoy making them as I won't be posting them and so don't have to worry about keeping them flat, can go mad with the embellies... so I'm doing 8 inch cards and lots of decoration!
    Hope you have a good day!
    Big hugs, Sue B xx
