Bah Humbug Challenge 33

My don't the weeks go by quickly??  It is time again for the Bah Humbug challenge and this time the theme is 'charms'.  I searched through all my stash and couldn't find any Christmas charms so resorted to stamping a tree onto black shrink plastic with moonlight white Brilliance ink and making a charm.  I stamped the same tree onto black card and embossed with sparkle embossing powder and mounted this onto layers cut with Nestabilities.  Background paper is from a Papermania pad which I've had for a while (maybe last Christmas or even the one before that) with the addition of some Cuttlebug snowflake embossed silver card and a sentiment from a current set of Papermania Christmas greeting stamps. It was finished off with some ribbon and pearls from my stash. The stamp is an old one by Inca Stamps.


  1. Morning Val, seems like you've done it again.. another lovely Christmas card xx

  2. It's a good job we can'think out of the box' isn't it? Lovely card Val I dont think your photo does your card justice.


  3. Great card Val - like you I couldn't find any Christmas charms so have resorted to shrink plastic!

  4. Hello Val

    Oh I do love your card, - love the black and silver together. That Papermaina backing paper is fabulous Wht a fantastic idea to match the stamped image and charm. I love the sentiment - you now have me singing, Oh dear I am now giving my age away !!!!

  5. Just got back from holiday so this is the first chance I've had to pop and see your card. Wow this is just so effective. Love the way you have created the matching charm - a really great idea.
