Oh my gosh I am so loving the new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley – it’s taking me longer to decide which image to use than it is to make up the card lol.
Today I have “Skating Along” aka Amy and Madison (my granddaughter and my Tricolour cavalier).
I can’t believe just how much that little doggie looks so much like my Maddi – that’s just how she walks, head and tail held high and proud lol. I distressed the Magnolia papers with a Tim Holtz distressing tool, then edged with Walnut Stain distress ink, then curled up sections of the paper then edged with Stickles (this really helps to set the curl lol). Then I added some Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint to the edges. I think you can see this clearer in the pic below.
I added Twinklets (from Simon Says Stamp) to the snow and glamour dust to Amy’s fur. I also went mad with the Twinklets on the new poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts. First I pulled the flowers to bits (as you do lol) then applied the Twinklets with Glossy Accents to each layer then put them back together again with pearl brads and gold spacers (that I got off Ebay probably about 2 years ago.)
A close up of the image – told you I went mad with the glitter lol, I even dotted some round the image and drew a few snowflake type thingys with a glue pen then poured glitter over this. A glittery snow explosion for sure lol.
I just love love love these new stamps, and can’t wait to share the rest with you – I just wish I had another 50 hours in the day to get more made lol. (Either that or win the lottery so I don’t have to go out to work – yeah right and that’s going to happen – NOT!!)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
