BIG Snowflakes!

BIG Snowflakes!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in.
Stencils tonight!
(not chicken!)
One of the things I enjoy about our stencils is that the emboss beautifully when run through a die cutting machine. 
I do like my E-Bosser. 
It’s not the latest one, but hey! I only use it as a mangle!
Here you can see our snowflake stencil on our ultra glossy 
Chromo Card. Glossy one side. Matte the other.
Simply brush Black Archival ink across the raised snowflakes. 
The ink will accentuate them
Tear a piece of copy paper and add a horizon.
Add the Words.
One of my oldest stamps.
Still a firm favourite.

Time to go and eat.
Been a long day.
Up since 5am. So much still to do, and so little time to do it in!
But getting excited to see Grace and Mark at the weekend!
Love & Hugs,

  2. Hi Barb,
    Love this card! Like Donna said, your stencils are the best on the market. Really effective card and relatively easy to do ( I think!). Will have to remember this for next year as it would be a good batch making card. I bet you are so looking forward to the weekend. Love and hugs, Alison xx

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Sorry I've been missing the last couple of days but had a dreadful migraine and was out of it completely. Donna, pleased you had fun at the party. We used to do hot dogs at our parties – the kids wanted them- and then at the parties most of the girls wouldn't eat in front of the boys! That's teenagers for you! Hoping you are all ok and sending love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

  3. love the effect the snowflakes make done like this, I have the stamp & have used it a lot this year on my cards. Think I need to start next years cards in the New Year with all the great ideas here & on facebook. Don't wear yourself out before the weekend & not be able to enjoy Christmas & family time !! xx

  9. Hi Barbara
    What a great card, simple but very effective. I love your stencils too they emboss so well. Thank you for the club goodies, aren't they lovely. Your letter cracked me up, oh dear, did you get your coat back using the internet code I wonder! Haha, I'm glad you found a Clarity lady in amongst the suits to cheer you up.
    Love Diane xxx

  10. Fabulous design. So exciting having Mark and Grace home, for me Christmas is all about family and a few silly games. I think Guy has some planned. Hope you can wind down on the business side for a little while and enjoy the festive time. xx
