I made this card for some special friends. I have been watching some Youtube tutorials of Card-io stamps and looking at ideas on Pinterest. I decided to buy Chipped Sapphire distress oxide to try. I love it as I achieved just the look I wanted on this card. I used it for the sky and the snowdrifts. I also discovered that using torn paper is better than using a mask as it is easier to stamp right to the snow line. I have now bought some blending brushes and another colour distress oxide to try some blending,
I am so pleased with the way this turned out. Sometimes I have a design in mind and the card ends up nothing like I envisaged but this turned out just as I imagined. All the stamps are Card-io and I used liquid pearls for the berries, a white gel pen and glitter.

Well not much happening on my blog this week, I have been doing some crafting but nothing I can share at the moment. After the two craft fairs I had a big sort out of all my stock. I had just 4 Santa keys left from a couple of years ago so advertised them on Facebook groups and sold them all. It’s such a busy time of year for everyone so I do appreciate those who take time to visit and especially comment.
We got the decorations out yesterday. We bought a smaller tree last year which I love and a lot of the decorations we used are handmade, mostly by me. The latest addition I bought at a craft fair. It is on the right, a needle felted robin with a knitted hat.
I will be back blogging again soon.
