A simple little card today, which I thought might be suitable for the MTTC challenge this week. I have used my lily stamp, which I have decoupaged. I have also cut the edge again with a Multi Shaper punch. The card has been finished off with peel offs and a hand written greeting.

I was trying to use some more of my stamps, but ended up back with the peacocks! Have stamped and embossed the head with cosmic shimmer embossing powder, and mounted on some lovely DCWV paper, and edged with a fancy punch and peel offs.

Having had a little bit of playtime today, when I should have been making cards, I happened upon an mdf plaque that I bought recently, so I decided to do something with it! I coloured the plaque with Adirondack acrylic dabbers , eggplant, black and gold. I then triple thick embossed it with clear UTEE, adding a sprinkling of Malachite Fire Aurora cosmic shimmer embossing powder on the third go. I then inked my peacock feather stamp with a gold encore ink pad and stamped into the still molten powder.

I've tried something a bit different for me this time........ as you can see I have been playing with my cuttlebug again, and used one of my paintings as a sort of focal point! The greeting was hand written, and the edges of the card were distressed with Ranger distress ink. Don't know if I'm very happy with the result, but hey ho!

When my friend produced some crackers for a Christmas party we had on Saturday, I couldn't get over the lovely cream and gold decoration on them, complete with stuck on gems. So after pulling the crackers I have made this ATC........unfortunately the foiling hasn't scanned very well!

These are the triangles that I have made for the CSF Christmas project. We are in teams of 4 and have each made 2 letters for the word Christmas, which we then swap. We have also all made our own S so that when we each receive all the letters we are able to make a banner decoration. I have used all my own stamps and embossed them in gold. The decoration on the letters is hand drawn, and the edges of the letters are finished with gold Krylon.........the edges of the triangles are finished with gold acrylic dabber.

I made this Christmas card for a friend who, like me favours the darker things in life............the background was embossed with a cuttlebug folder which I then stroked with a gold ink pad and embossed with black embossing powder. The greeting and Madonna are two of my own designs, and I finished off with a black ribbon.
