I would like to thank Dot Leathbridge from Ink Art Designs for her past contributions as one of our designers. She has taken on a new venture and can no longer participate. Our new design team member is Tracy Moloney from Victoria. Tracy is a past blog hop competition winner and she assures me she is thrilled to be asked to join us. Well we are thrilled that she said 'yes'. Just click on a designers name and you will be taken to that persons blog. Good luck to all.

Here are my cards using the lovely stamp CRP306 Pine Ornaments that is the focus for this months Blog Hop Competition.

 I used silver Tinsel glitter embossing powder for the design and white detail embossing powder for the sentiment which is CRM326 Christmas Love

I used Chameleon markers, Palette Hybrid ink and macro glitter for this card. You can't see the dimension on the two glitter baubles but thay are quite raised as I added the glitter over Dimensional magic.

I borrowed this idea from the Stampendous catalogue. I have pressed the stamp into molten Chunky Gold Embossing Enamel. I rubbed some black wax into the grooves to deepen the image but I could have inked up my stamp with black in had I thought of it.

This idea was given to me by a customer. It is resist with Pixie Powders over the top.Thanks Barbara.
