Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest Sarah and the DT have made :-)

I made a couple of cards to share today, first up is this Christmas shaker card made using a STAMPtember® Center Cut Holiday Icons Cling Stamp



I used Simon's Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Circles Dies to cut the front panel from Watercolor Paper and blended with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I then stamped the Holiday Icons design over the top.
 I didn't notice until I came to photograph this but I must have dropped the stamp when I was lifting it off as it has double stamped in areas. I actually quite like the look of this, it makes it look a little distressed and grungy, I will be doing this deliberately, occasionally, from now on!! ;-) 

I used the same ink and blended a second piece of paper and then used White Embossing Paste and a Simon's Falling Snow Stencil for the inside of the shaker. I love that this cute little Retro Deer is looking up at the  Alexis Snowflake ;-) 


and I finished the inside 


and made a coordinating envelope!


For my 2nd card I used a new STAMPtember® Spiritual Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and a  Harvest Stencil along with lots of sparkle!


I started by blending Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink over some watercolor paper and then applied the stencil over the top. I then blended some gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink before applying a thick layer of embossing paste. While it was still wet I sprinkled with Vintage Platinum Distress Glitter Dust, so super sparkly IRL.  For the edge I used double sided sticky tape and sprinkled the same glitter over the top. 








So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
