Snowflakes are a-falling

Christmas is in the air today over here with 2 cards that I made using different techniques. One is stamped and coloured with distress inks (oooh, my first real try at that and I loved colouring with distress ink), and the other is a simple embossed card.

Today is Creative Card Crew Challenge and our very talented Claire chose the theme of using


somewhere on your creations. Well, the possibilities are endless and there is some wonderful inspiration over at the challenge blog. This first card uses the fab WOJ herb stamp. I think it is a fantastic Christmas stamp. I just had to add a bit of bling snow with some diamond ice stickles, although they have turned a bit blue in the photo. I've used Dovecraft paper with snowflakes. Hmmm, makes a change for me to use traditional Christmas colours, doesn't it?

The second card uses the cuttlebug folder of a Christmas tree. I made this one out of very few items: white card, X-cut snowflake punch, Cuttlebug folder, pale blue promarker pen, a few gems and some glamour dust. This is my Christmas on a budget card!
Come on over and join in with us this week. There is a fab credit voucher from Simon Says Stamp! for one lucky winner.

Thanks for looking
