ABC Christmas I for Ice and Indigo Challenge

Good Morning all ,, well the last 2 weeks have flown by and its time for a new theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge :-) This time it’s our Boss Samantha’s turn to host the challenge and she chose ,..

I for ICE, INDIGO and INSPIRATION

We are sponsored by Stamping with Brenda who is an independant Stamping Up demonstrator and one lucky entrant will win a months membership to the Paper Society :-) Click on the link for details.

We are joined this week by Shelly who has agreed to be in our 1st ever Designer Spotlight, welcome aboard Shelly :-)




For my card I used a Hero Arts Snowy Night cling stamp. I inked the image with 3 different blue distress inks then sprayed it with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist before stamping onto plain white card. I layered this onto plain blue card and kept the backing papers simple by using white card and a Swiss Dots embossing folder. I used a Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake and some spotty ribbon and a star brad to finish.


And this is the fab insprational piccy for you :-) Isn't it beautiful !!




Shelly and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

Gorgeous card. I love the beautiful snow scene and the embossing makes it appear like it continues beyond the image panel.
