Create & Craft sneak peek & Cupcake challenge

As I'm not very productive on the cardmaking side of things at the mo, thought I would share a couple of DT samples for next weeks new Stamp Addicts Christmas Programme ........ 30th July, don't forget to put your TV on to record. As this is the first airing of these cards I am using the lilac and acetate card at the top of this post for this weeks Cupcake Challenge where the theme is Christmas Cards.

All stamps used are Judikins and will be available from Create and Craft and of course Stamp Addicts........ hopefully I won't get shot for saying this, but I believe they may even be available from them direct now.
Have to be honest here and say I made these cards 2/3 weeks ago and shipped them off to them so having trouble remembering from my photos exactly what I did, but these are pretty straightforward so hopefully no misinformation. On the first one I stamped 3073 onto heat resistant acetate with versamark and embossed with detail silver. The snowman is 3084H stamped onto nesties cut on the bug, coloured with Marvy pens and placed on the inside of the card so he shows through the snowflakes.

The second card uses the same happy snowman, this time stamped simply with black versafine and embossed with detail clear, coloured with Marvy pens (was still waiting for my Promarkers then) and glittered with JudiKins snow white glitter - this really is brilliant for snowy scenes, it's larger granules than regular glitter and really does do a great 'snow' job. DP is from stash and the edges were done with Firkars threading water.

Hello Brenda

Oh my what fabulous Christmas cards, I just love the snowman, and the glitter on the second one finishes him off perfectly.

Will have a look at the SA site for those fabulous stamps.

Hope you are feeling better today.
