One of Many

Hello everyone and thanks for dropping by!
I thought it was about time I showed you one of the many Christmas cards I have been making:
This one uses many of my favourite things, inking, stamping, using an embossing folder and die cuts, oh and some stenciling as well. The stamp is from La Blanche, the embossing folder is a Tim Holtz one and the colours are chipped Sapphire , Vintage Photo and Brushed Corduroy. I highlighted the embossed bits with some Treasure Gold, one of my all time fav products at the moment...

Simply gorgeous: rich, vintage colours, and so much wonderful texture and depth from the stencilling and inking. The pale roses and branches are the perfect accents for your atmospheric Christmas work of art (the word "card" just doesn't do it justice!)...

This is absolutely exquisite; I agree with Alison, it is a work of art. Can you tell me please, what die is the frame? I would like to get one like this. Thank you,

It is simply stunning, dear Astrid, what a beautiful card, there are so many elements to admire, and all the 3-d is fantastic. Love the sprig you added.

Eine wunderbare Karte, Astrid, das LB-Motiv im ovalen Rahmen passt sehr gut zu den schönen Papieren und die Gestaltung mit der Weihnachtskugel, den Blumen und Zweigen sowie den Krystal-Swirls ist so elegant, großartig!

Oooohhhh... another gorgeous card, Astrid!
How do you achieve this gorgeous metallic effect on your die cut? Is it a special ink or did you brush over it with something special or what is the secret of this wonderful effect? *an inquiring mind would love to know* ;)

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
