Welcome To My Blog

Hi everyone!!

My name is Jan and I live near Cardiff with my husband, dog and my 3 gorgeous Birman cats. Everyone who knows me, knows that I am mad about cats. I gave up breeding thema couple of years ago and can't wait to start again. In the meantime, crafting has become my new obsession.

I have been card making for about 6 years now but it is only recently that I have discovered a real love of stamping and hope to share that with you in the future.

Shopping List:
6x6 card
black card, Bashful Blue card
linen effect card
pan pastels: ultramarine blue, ultramarine blue tint and violet tint
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Mixed Medley, Baroque Motifs and Contempo Christmas
Framelits Holiday Ornaments
1 1/4" scallop punch
scallop trim border punch
black glitter embossing powder
memento black in and black gems

I matted black card onto the 6x6 card. I then coloured my linen card with pan pastels and stamped the swirl and sentiment with memento ink. The bottom edge to the linen card was done using the scallop trim border punch. I stamped the ornament on the Bashful Blue card, embossed with the black glitter powder and die cut it with the matching ornament die. Dmensionals were used to stick the ornament to the linen card. The centre of the ornament I created using the Mixed Medley snowflake stamp and the sentiment for that set. To finish, black gems were applied. Again, a quick card but effective I think. Hope you like.
