Good enough to eat !!
Here is a card I`ve made for Sir Stampalot with the Gingerbread house from the new Molly Blooms Christmas stamps. I`ve coloured with distress inks and used Snow writer, Glossy Accents, Stickles - Diamond and Glamour dust to embellish.
The snowflakes are from the Marianne Creatables dies #LR0125, papers are Bazzill embossed dot and MME Stella Rose Gertie 6x6 papers ( which I love ).
The little sign post was created by first measuring the area inside the sign post and using my graphics programme on the computer typing in the sentiment and sizing it to fit, printing it out and then using a stamp positioner, stamped the sign post stamp over the top to make sure the sentiment was central, then colour, cut out and embellish. It was a bit of a faff but I think the end result was worth it as I don`t have any greetings small enough to fit in this little sign. It was such a cute stamp though from the mini Molly Blooms collection, I couldn`t resist it !
I had a lot of fun making this card but it took several days to complete as I had to wait for the distress inks to dry thoroughly before I put the Glossy accents on to avoid the colours running, then I ran out of snow writer ! then I had to wait for the snow writer to dry which takes several hours ! I hope the end result is worth the effort. I love this card and I am going to find it hard to part with !
I have a new bunch of Molly Blooms stamps to do samples with so I`d better get started, thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xxx
