Inky fingers

I have an aching neck from sitting at the sewing machine making bunting so I decided to take a break and get Inky and make a couple of Christmas cards. I am loving the Dasher stamp from the mini catalogue & I really hope that he will stay with us in the New Stampin' Up catalogue.
The cardstock is Kraft that is soon to be renamed Crumb cake & Garden Green. The inks are Versamark Garden Green & Creamy caramel. The stamp sets are Wondrous gift, Dasher & En Francais. The backing papers are from the great value scrappin kit called Christmas Jingle. The images are hi-lighted using the shimmer mists that are in the current mini catalogue, I have a sneaking suspicion that they may appear in the new catalogue as the are beautiful & very versatile.

The cardstock used in this card is Kraft & Ruby red. The inks are Versamark, Creamy caramel & Old olive, I love old olive it just keeps sneaking onto my cards I am so glad that it isn't one of the retiring colours at the end of September. The stamps used are Large medallion, Spotlight on Christmas & Dasher.The backing papers are from the scrappin kit Christmas Jingle. Dasher is stamped in Versamark & covered with the Heat & stick powder, heated with the heat tool & then covered in the dazzling diamonds glitter & reheated briefly. Very vanilla Taffeta ribbon is tied around the backing paper with a fake bow. The sentiment joy is from the spotlight on Christmas set & stamped in Old olive onto craft card & punched out using the 1 1/4" punch & mounted on a 1 3/8" circle of Ruby red card, I used a blender pen & the shimmer mist in Champagne to hi-light the sentiment.
