The most wonderful time of the year.

Hi there, I'm back again today with some stamped cards with a lot of sparkle!

I love watching Chloe Endean on the TV and I have some of her stamps so I thought it was time to get them out and have a little play. I has been a long time since I did any heat embossing, but seeing Chloe work her magic with the fabulous WOW powders had me digging in my cupboard for my heat gun and acetate.

I made a couple of cards which are almost identical, but just switched the colour of the berries to give a slightly different look.

I stamped the backing card with a beautiful pine branch and embossed with WOW powder in St Tropez Sands. I then stamped my snow flake wreath once on to my centre card and once on to acetate, which I cut out and mound  on to the main card, slightly offset to make the wealth look fuller.

The sentiment is also a Chloe stamp and I was surprised that you can emboss it and still read it, which is always a bonus!

Finally, I created my berries with Nuvo pearl drops which give a lovely pearl shape to create the perfect berry.

I was so pleased with how these cam e out and I am loving the sparkle. I will definitely be making a few more cards like this.

Before I go, of course I must enter some challenges:

Thanks for visiting today.
