As November speeds along it's time to get those Christmas cards made and sent, we wouldn't have you resorting to buying them, now would we?
So over at Fantasy Stampers there's your chance to make a card for your stash by entering our latest challenge of -
OK, may not be your thing, a bit like me, but I did a bit of googling for inspiration and came up with this.
As we are a traditional stamping challenge I was struggling to find vintage style stamps in my stash but I saw these MB candles in a 'vintage' style card and thought I could do something with my Stampendous Christmas background stamp. The colours over at Merry Monday suggested a vintage theme also, more 50's than Victorian but hey, 50's is vintage!
After stamping my panel with the background stamp I distressed the edges and inked it with Hickory Smoke DI then glued it flat to a white base card. I cut an oval of the same card and distressed the edges then inked it with a mixture of Barn Door and festive Berries DI and a spritz of water for more dimension, a bit of distressed muslin was added to the back of the panel before the die cut candles complete with added bling was glued on top.
OK, that's it from me but for more inspiration please check out the rest of the team here.
I'd like to join in over at -
