Having a Festive Flurry with the new Stampin' Up blendabilities

Did you see my sneak peek yesterday of the new Stampin' Up blendibilities? I'm obsessed now of course so if anything around here stays still for long enough it's getting coloured in with alcohol markers! My children and the cat are too fast for me (!) so I found a stamped image to colour instead - come and see:

Blendabilities are not just for complicated images! It only takes a few minutes to blend the colours on this large snowflake from Stampin' Up's Festive Flurry set (available only until Monday! Edited to add: Stampin' Up has just announced it will be extending availability until 27th August.) and it gives it a nice shimmery effect.

I added a bit more shine with one of the reduced large gems from the Retirement List.

I'll be linking this card up with Merry Monday, where the theme is Sparkle Shimmer or Shine, and Rudolph Day where, as usual, the idea is to make two Christmas cards for your stash - like this:

There aren't many snowflakes to be seen in balmy Buckingham at the moment but that's bound to change in the next couple of days. How do I know? Well the Glastonbury Festival is on and mud is traditional! My daughter and her friends have set off for the festival, armed with (or should that be legged with?!) wellies and raincoats. A hot bath and a mug of cocoa will be waiting on her return!

 See you tomorrow.
