Red and gold Christmas

Meljen 81 challenge is asking for 'red and gold', so I've used a red 7 x 5 card blank, matted with Anna Griffin papers - one with gold glitter and the other with red flocking. The sentiment and gold bow are AG and the 3D sticker is Forever Friends, which is for this week's Forever Friends 'anything goes'challenge. Heart buttons are from stash.

Everything for this card is more than a year old, so it is just right for ABC Christmas 'U for unused stash' - and, sadly, once again I forgot to take a photo of the supplies before making the card - d'oh!

Black and gold glitter

For challenge 21 Quirky crafts are asking for a recipe of black, gold and glitter (or there is the option of 'something spooky', but, as I don't do halloween, I opted for the recipe).

So this is another Christmas card using a 7 x 5 black card blank, layered with a piece of Anna Griffin glittered paper, topped with a gold bow and the Rubber stampede 'angel collage' stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold powder, held in place by four golden brads.

Seeing spots at Christmas

This week's Christmas stampin' all year challenge is 'seeing spots'. I've used Cosmo cricket deck the hollies mitten weather double sided paper for these five cards. The snow scene was stamped with versamark on to stardream card and heat embossed with detail black powder (the stamp was one that I borrowed from a dear crafting friend at the beginning of the year).
