Black and gold Christmas

For this card I've used one of my latest Stampotique Christmas stamps that I got with a voucher I won from Crazy 4 challenges a while ago. It's Christmas mosaic by Amy Wilson. I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold powder on to black cardstock, then matted on to some gold paper. I then inked up a couple of favourite Inkadinkado snowflake stamps with versamark and again heat embossed with detail gold, randomly stamped directly on to the black card blank. This is for Creative card crew 15: black card stock.

I love stamping and embossing so this is my card for facebook Sunday's with Santa for Sunday 8 July to use favourite things, which also includes those background stamps.

As I've used a newly acquired stamp that hasn't been used before this is for Christmas stampin all year long 19: no inky yet!

Simply with love

I thought I'd have a break from Christmas cards and go back to the MCS everyday essentials kit, using some of the floral elements.

I've used three colours from the choice given for The cupboard trilogy 1 colour palette:


My colours are sage green, soft coral and warm pink:

Santa delivering presents

Another simple card that I made a couple of days ago, using a large Kanban topper, matted on to a large Kanban red and gold foiled card, mounted on to an A5 white card blank. The Kanban items have been in my Christmas box for a few years now - about time I used them!
