Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hi Ladies. This will be my last design blog posting before Christmas, so here's my card to you. Using the Personal Impressions Stamp set "Tis the Season", designed by our own lovely Marion Emberson, I stamped the trees on a scrap of bazzill using pearlescent ivy ink, the phrase on another scrap - this time using swiss dot bazzill and versa fine ink which I edged in glamour dust. I covered the background with a white stamped snowflake. All of these stamps are in the pack, it's such a handy one to have.

Adding a bit more glamour dust to the trees and a shiny bling star to the top of the largest completes the look. I used foam pads to create more layers and finished it off with a length of sparkly silver ribbon.

I hope you like it, and I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very sparkly New Year. My next posting, on the 27th, will be coming to you from the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado. I am planning to share a snowy layout with you - weather permitting!

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
