And there's more...

Here is another card I made with the Inkylicious Christmas tree flourish, this time in black and cream with red highlights.
I also used the Inkylicious damask background on the base card. The red glitter is applied over red tulip paint, so is 3d. The poinsettia on the corner is a Marianne Die and is just the right size to disguise an inky fingerprint! I am entering this into this week's Allsorts challenge where the theme is 'Oh Christmas tree' and this months Joanna Sheen challenge where the theme is With love at Christmas.
I also made a card for a dear friend who is leaving her job very soon.
  For this card I took my inspiration from the very talented Cath Wilson who made this card a few weeks back. I fell in love with it and had to have a go. The stamps are from Inkylicious set called Moonlight foliage, and the Music Background behind the plants is also an Inkylicious stamp, stamped in versamark before creating the background with adirondack inks and ink dusters. I managed to mount it on two Fleur de Lys squares which I cropped to make fit together as a rectangle. the embossed panel is made with a cuttlebug folder. Thanks so much for looking and for the lovely comments you leave. Only two more days before we break up - woohoo!

  5. Weird! Well, I did tell you I love trees too lol! I'm guessing red white and black could be big next season :-))). Fab card, that is a gorgeous stamp. Love it all, maddy x

  6. Ooh gorgeous cards Sally, love that tree with the matching background and why didn't I think of extending my die to create a rectangle! The shadow stamping is brilliant:) Enjoy your Christmas break, well deserved, I hope you have a good one

  7. Love that tree, it is so elegant in black with the red. The poinsettia is the perfect embellishment, inky fingerprint or not!

    The second card is simply gorgeous too. Great shadow effect on the foliage - must try that! Very clever how you've made the rectangle from the square die. Will have to pinch that idea too! x

  8. I love the red highlights in your Christmas card. I'm usually not so fond of black and white, but this one definitely is very special.

  12. Your tree card with the red glitter looks very elegant. I think I have heard of tulip paint. Is it the stuff you can heat and it puffs up? Hugs Mrs A.
