Sweet Stampin' - Christmas Presents

Hello and good morning everyone ---

After being hit here in the UK by 'Storm Desmond' I hope you are all safe and well, and manage to avoid or at least survive the awful floods and gale force winds we've had. I feel I'm one of the lucky ones here in my part of North East England, as we only suffered from the effects of the gale force winds but thankfully no rain. With all that and all the other awful news in the headlines recently my daughter came up with a great mantra for us to live by - Be Safe. Be Vigilant. Be Strong. 

Anyhow onto happier things it's my turn to share my Sweet StampinDesign Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Christmas Presents' and remember you MUST include a stamped element on your card/project.

For my card this week I used a freebie stamp from a cardmaking magazine, I think I've had it since last Christmas time or maybe the Christmas before that. I have to say it's very cute - I coloured it with Copic, Pro & Flexmarkers.

Here's What I Did
I matted a 5" x 7" white card base with some Christmas patterned paper. Next I stamped the cute little puppy onto some colouring card stock, and coloured with Copics pens, Pro & Flexmarkers. The finished image was then die cut into a rectangle and matted onto some crimson card, this was then attached to the card base.  Glitter was used on the presents and flower, and a few glitter dots were added around the image .

To finish off I attached a die cut poinsettia and tag. I also gave the puppy a glossy nose and eyes using a clear glaze pen.
