A merry little wish

I have a card to share using my Festival of Trees stampe set and co ordinating punch.

The card base is Very Vanilla and I stamped two trees in Mossy Meadow ink onto a panel of very vanilla, and added some glamour dust for a little sparkle.  I masked off the bottom of the panel and sponged a little crumb cake ink to make some snow drift effect. ( I am not very good with sponging bit heavy handed )and again added some glamour dust.
I then punched a tree from Cherry cobbler cardstock added some gold sequins, and a little gold star that I had left over from a shaker card kit. I then made a little bow from gold twine and added to the bottom of the tree, before mounting onto the panel with foam dots.
I mounted my vanilla panel onto some cherry cobbler and then adhered to my card.

the new challenge over at the paper players is a colour challenge using all of the above colours

Tag Card

I have a card to share today that actually started out as a tag for last months mixed media challenge at Happy Little Stamper, but unfortunately I never got around to blogging and linking it up!!!!!! I decided to make it into a card.

I have used my favourite technique for the background (Paper Smooching with Brusho's) I just love messing around with these great powder paints.

I used the sleigh ride edgelets from stampin up and cut the sleigh from white card and the line of trees from glitter card. I then used a stitched tag die on my brusho card added the trees and then the sleigh with some foam pads.  The star is punched out from glitter card.
I used a sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments set, and then mounted the whole tag onto my card base with some foam pads.
I coloured my ribbon using some brusho powder mixed with water, and then let it dry.

I am adding this to Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge anything goes.
