The holly bears a berry as white as the milk


'The holly bears a berry ...'  (Sans Day Carol) is a beautiful Christmas carol that isn't sung very often. For this card I've used offcuts of the stitched paper with stars (originally wrapping paper), some Papermania red and white paper and a small piece of card rescued from a cracker two or three years ago (not much of this left now). The holy was upcycled from a card received. Spotty grosgrain ribbon from stash.

Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 71: let's stencil continued


Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 71: let's stencil continues today with some more inspiration from the team. To enter the challenge and see the inspiration from last week please click here. We would love to see the creations you make using a stencil or mask. The challenge is being sponsored by Stencilgirl products.

So this is my design team card for Let's stencil. Background created by first dabbing scrunched paper on to acrylic paint on a gelli plate creating a mottled effect, then using two Clarity Stamp stencils to finish the background with different colours of acrylic. Stamps were inked with stazon black - the collage at the bottom is a Paper Artsy stamp, other stamps are My Mind's Eye.

Colours are for Party time Tuesday 142:
