It's going to be a White Christmas from Stampin' Up

The moment I saw the adorable White Christmas stamp set in the autumn/winter Stampin' Up catalogue, I started thinking of all the wonderful things I could do with it. So many different creatures and other elements to add to a snowy scene...! Here's the first of many, many makes:

Naturals White card stock is perfect for any sponged scene because it's soft speckled surface gives a nice feeling of movement. I heat embossed the trees in white before masking off the ground and sponging the sky. Hmm, red sky in the morning... Get all those sheep in the barns you shepherds!

Can you see the speckled card stock really adds to that frosty feel? I used a mix of the Frosted Sequins and Basic Rhinestones to get the sparkle in my trees and I love how glittery they are!

The sentiment was stamped on a banner, heat embossed in silver and stapled onto the scene with my new favourite toy the Handheld Stapler - I love the size of the staples and have been using them on everything!

It was the 25th of the month yesterday and so I'll be joining Sarn at her Rudolph Day challenge with not one but two of my shiny cards as per the rules!

You know the saying Red sky at night, shepherds' delight? We have a different version in our house: Red sky at night, Turkish delight! And frankly we're not really fussy about the time of day or what colour the sky is!

I'll have something quite different to show you on Monday using the White Christmas set I used today. Until then, have a great weekend and remember that crafting is really good for your health!
