Mistletoe Mwah!

Hi there!

Well as you may have seen I have added more things onto the page, there is now a follower option or follow by email. I have also managed to add my blinkie saying I am an accredited Spectrum Noir colourist. Trust me, that took far longer to add that blinkie than I think was absolutely necessary, but gadgets and technology is just not my thing.

I have also managed to add my link to my Facebook page which has a more complete gallery of my cards (still not sure how I managed it but I did!). I am in the process of preparing cards for a stall I am having in November so these will be added when I get the chance to photograph them all and post them.

Right, enough babbling, on to today's post. I am in love with the Strawberry Kisses Christmas range stamps - so today's post is another card using this range.

This is just another simple card using an A5 card blank, with a gold mirri base, I mat and layered some ivory centura card stock and another layer of mirri card.  I then used a piece of Christmas paper, which is vintage gold with glittered trees as the main background.

I stamped my image with memento tuxedo black, onto Neenah cardstock and coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I used one of the Romantic Rectangle dies from Spellbinders. Whilst still in the die, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen.  I then mounted it onto my card layers, added a sentiment (I think i found this one in one of my Kanban kits) and some pearl embellishments.

I know it is simple but I wanted the main focus to be the image and preferred the simple matting and layering behind to compliment it. If anyone wants me to list the spectrum noir colours used, I am happy to do so.

Well, that's it for today and I shall be back soon with another card to share with you. I hope you like today's post!




  1. I love this card Yvonne! Haven't yet tried that stamp (slap wrists) but have sooo many and another range comes out before I get chance to use! If you know what I mean!!! I know what your saying about putting the flashing blinkie up, took me an age too but got there in the end, wasn't giving up!!!

    1. Debbie, thank you for your comments. I went onto your blog to join it but nothing happened! I clicked many times, so either I've joined you multiple times, or I have done something wrong.......I'll try again later :)
