Reminder card for the Paradise of Stamps

Good morning everyone,

Yay it's Friday, where did that week go? I hope you have all had a wonderful week.

I'm just popping in quickly to share my reminder card for the current challenge at the Paradise of Stamps. Our theme is 'Use your Favourite Things'.

This time I have chosen Christmas as they are my favourite cards to make and I have coloured up another Maggie, my favourite stamps.

This little cutie is called 'Berry Tilda'. I have coloured her with distress reinkers.

The snowflake die is a Sizzix on the edge die which I have cut twice and layered up. I have rubbed in some silver Pebeo silver gilding wax on the top layer.

My new favourite thing is to emboss card and use gilding wax, so each of the three layers have been embossed with a Crafters Companion 3D snowflake die and had gilding wax applied to them. I have also painted the edges of the layers with white gesso.

Tucked underneath the image are two Joy Crafts 8 point dies and the icicle is also cut from a Joy Crafts die and I've sprinkled some twinklets over the top which give it a lovely icy look. The sprawling ferns are a Magnolia Doohickey die.

The square pearl trim, pearl string and lace are from the Ribbon Girl and the flowers are from my stash. I have also sprinkled some twinklets over the roses.

Her wings have been sprinkled with glamour Dust.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Aged Mahogany
Berries: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany

Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
