Guest designer at Addicted to Stamps & More


Hi, this week the team at Addicted to Stamps & More have invited me to be a guest designer.
I am really delighted to be joining them.


The theme this week is HOLIDAYS. I chose to do a christmas card as it's never too soon to start those!

I stamped this Memory Box poinsettia onto vellum and embossed in gold. The image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils and I used the gamsol technique to blend them. It's a good thing that vellum is stronger than it looks, it stood up to fussy cutting pretty well! 

For more info please visit Addicted to Stamps & More, the design team have lots of wonderful projects to inspire you.

Materials used: Memory Box stamp; Prismacolor pencils; vellum; Stately embossing folder; bling & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
