CHNC challenge 239: Ho! Ho! Ho!

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 239: Ho! Ho! Ho! Please click on the link to see what this is about and join in the Christmas fun with your entries.

For my one layer CAS card I've used one of my favourite Santa stamps bt Hero Arts inked with memento tuxedo black and filled in with a poppy red embossing pen for Santa's hat, heat embossed with WOW! detail clear gloss powder, then using a clear embossing pen to 'colour' in the fur on Santa's hat and his beard and embossed with WOW! metallic medley powder. The Ho Ho Ho stamp was from Hobbycraft. I dotted in places with quickie glue and then sprinkled with Chloe's sparkelicious glitter.

However much I tried I couldn't get a photo that showed the card as it actually is - this is the best I could do and below you can see a close up showing the embossing and glitter a bit better:

Ice cream shades

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 90: anything goes with a twist ... use some ice cream shades - I'm thinking pistachio, mint, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry ... yes, I know that's a lot of flavours, but I love a lot of them! Please click on the link to see the delicious crafting of the rest of the team and we hope you will take part in our challenge.

I used the lovely ballet image supplied by Dazzling Ace Designs as sponsor of the challenge, digitally layering on to the lovely ballet shoes background, making the edges of the ballerina image soft to blend in. I then added the quote.
