STAMPlorations Challenge #26

Good afternoon peeps.
Welcome to a post to say that there it's time for a new monthly challenge over at STAMPlorations.
This month you can use the theme or the sketch or combine the two as I did here with my DT card.

Here is the sketch I used
and this is the theme

I've used another of my soft inky backgrounds here, this time in blue. I used three DI's for this, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Faded Jeans. I'm afraid the photo doesn't show the subtleties of the inking, it was a compromise between the holographic and mirror card dazzling the camera or a better colour rendition!
To start with I stamped the snowflakes from the Christmas Block stamp in clear EF on a white card panel, next I added the inky goodness and finally three die cut snowflakes with Stickles glitter in the centre. I added the sentiment from Christmas Candles in silver embossing and a strip of silver holographic card down the left hand side to complete.

OK, that's about from me. Please check out the rest of the fab  DT and our GD the wonderful Darnell.

I'd like to join in over at -

I took inspiration from the Christmas theme and silver and the turquoise blue (think the photo doesn't really show the different blues in the inking!)

I went across the diagonal snowflake/sparkle/die cut

Only a little glitter in the middle of the snowflakes


  1. Love this snowy gorgeousness Julie what a fab design. I would like to take you up on your kind offer, but being technically challenged I couldn't find an email address on your blog and Facebook is a mystery so I gave up on email addresses is xx
