Basic Grey Week #8 - Glitz & Bling


Hi girls. Thanks for popping over to my blog. The rain has returned after a few hours respite this morning. Long enough for me to attend a class taken by Siobhan at the brilliant Stampaholics in Perth without getting a soaking. I made this card for the Basic Grey challenge. I used a stamp of a church from a Stampin Up set and masked the Penny Black stamp "Caroling Trio" from the new Slapsick range to stamp in on top. I am quite pleased with the result. The paper is the reverse side of Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses - reindeer games" and all the embellishments and ribbon are from my stash. The flowers are handmade and cut from gold mirra card. The whole image was treated with glitter to give the glitz and bling.
I hope you like this card and have enough time to spare to leave me a comment. I love reading your opinions and really appreciate you taking the trouble to leave them.
Do have a nice day, keep safe and enjoy your crafting.
Hugs,
Fiona x

  3. HI Fiona, Your latest card is amazing.My Mum would love what you have done with the masking.She hasn't quite grasped the being able to even do that yet.She is just getting addicted to stamps in a big way...hehe.
    You have been so creative recently.It has been nice to take a visit in your blog and check them all out.
    Hope you are well and having fun getting into the Christmas mood.It is getting so hot over here right now, and I imagine it is getting colder for you guys in the UK.
    Take care and I will visit soon.
