and they're back...

Good morning my friends. If you read my last post these guys may look a trifle familiar :)) Here they are dressed in fetching shades of blue, don't they look cool?!
This card is for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', a great theme this week...we want you to use your favourite that IS a challenge! How can anyone pick a favourite when there are so many to choose from??? It is rumoured that some members of the DT cheated, but not me, oh no I never cheat...this is my new favourite Christmas stamp so perfectly acceptable! ;)
A simple matted design with glitter added to borders, the ribbon wrapped layer is stamped and heat embossed with a glittery embossing powder, looks very pretty IRL (not that you can see much of it!) and the tag is a chipboard one that I've had for years...still got gazillions of them left... I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto it and attached it with an equally ancient snowflake tag which I glittered up.
Why not come along and play with us this week, rack your brains deciding which is your favourite stamp then ink it up and join the fun! Just click here to enjoy the fabulous creations from my lovely teamies and then add your own beautiful work.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

  7. Yes, I can see why you love this image and also love the lovely shades of blue, this stamp will look great in any colour and that makes it so versatile and means you probably will never tire of it.

  8. Brilliant Chris! Loved them in brown and now in blue! A super fun stamp for Christmas and I'm sure will get lots more use. Very clever embossing the ribbon with glitter powder. Never would have thought to do that! Love that chipboard tag. I too have a bunch similar to these I must get through! Funny how crazes change and we end up with stash we reach for less and less. I really do want to be better at using my older (still fabulous) lesser used stash. Gorgeous job on this challenge hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
