Christmas Shaker

A Christmas shaker card using one of the stamps which I spotted being given away free on the front of a magazine this week - I never can resist a bargain! The frame was cut using nestabilities. Poinsettia sticker is a 3-D one from Papermania last Christmas.

Build A Poppy

This is my first card using the new Build A Poppy stamp set from Papermania. The elements of the main flower have been stamped in black Versafine and clear embossed, coloured with watercolour pencils and a water brush. Background was stippled and stamped using Brilliance ink. I am aiming to try different ways of colouring and using what I am sure will turn out to be a versatile set of stamps. Apparently more flowers are to follow in the near future. The poppy has been launched to coincide with the Poppy Appeal and £1 from each sale of stamp sets will be sent to the Appeal.
