Christmas week four at H2H

Hi again, this week and for the rest of the month at H2H they are looking for our Christmas projects.  I am sharing one of the cards that I have been sending out this year.

I used the Close to my Heart 'Glory to God' stamp set in outdoor denim, with dazzling diamonds glitter from Stampin'Up on the halo.  The sentiment, from Verve stamps - Peace on Earth; is stamped on outdoor denim cardstock with versamark and Close to my Heart silver embossing powder, which I also used on the stars.  I keep returning to the 'Glory to God' stamp set from Close to my Heart for my card creations for special people.

Time for another sketch challenge at H2H

Hi all, after a month of technical and health issues I think I am back, learning a new operating system on top of it all:)  This weeks challenge at the heart 2 heart challenges blog was to use this sketch: 

Needing a few birthday cards in the midst of all the Christmas cards it is nice to have some inspiration, this is what I created tonight.

I used some of our new colours of cardstock and ink colours to create this card.  Cashmere and ruby are my main colours, I like diamond better than squares.  

This card gave me the opportunity to play with a number of different stamp sets.  The images on the diamonds are from a retired set 'Jubilation' D1457, stamped in ruby and highlighted with our metallic markers 'For Every Occasion' D1187.  I stamped the ruby cardstock pieces with the floral from the 'Diverse BackgroundsD1508 set in cashmere, to give it some depth.  Added a strip of our silver shimmer trim Z1799 and three red bling.
