The background is embossed with a snowflake pattern from Dovecraft and edged with Evergreen Bough distress ink. I covered the join in the embossing with some paper from Papermania's Victorian Christmas set. The white rick rack ribbon is also from Papermania - Bellissima Christmas.
The trees were stamped onto the same paper using Evergreen Bough and the shape cut out from the same Sizzix Framelits set. The sentiment is from the same stamp/die set.
The snowflakes are from the Spellbinders 2012 Snowflake pendant set and are covered with shaved ice. Assorted pearls and sequins were used for embellishments.

I used a stencil from the latest edition of Crafts Beautiful for the background using Tea Dye distress ink. I then "frantaged" the background. The snowflakes are from Spellbinders 2012 Snowflake pendant set using craft card and gold mirror card. The centre of the larger snowflake is shaded with more Tea Dye ink. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Sizzix Holiday words script. Stickle glue was used to highlight the edges of the large snowflake, the word Christmas and in the centre of the gold snowflake.

This is a card I made for Mum using papers from an Inspiration magazine from Debbie Moore. The edges are from a Martha Stewart punch. The letters are die cuts but I don't know who makes the die, possibly Docrafts? (oops). The With Love stamp is from the Crafters Companion Clearly hand stamped collection. The tag is from Spellbinders and the banners were stamps from Stamp Addicts. Baker's twine and stickles added for embellishments.

A slightly more complex but still simple card. On black card, I used a bubble template and used Cosmic Shimmer embossing paste - Icicle Blue sparkles and left to dry. I hate waiting but it has to be done. I cut out the twisted metal tag from Spellbinders in white and black using the white outline and the black insert. On the black insert I stamped the sentiment from Clarity stamps in silver and used a silver pen to add stitching. Black and white layering.

A simple card for my husband's birthday. I stamped distress ink pads - walnut stain, antique linen, tea dye and pumice stone - direct to a piece of white card and then covered with sparkling embossing powder. I left a space for the Happy Birthday stamp from Clarity and the die cut Dad from Britannia. Then I added three Spellbinder die d-lites "cattails" - two in black and one in white - swiped with the walnut stain to the front. I mounted this on black card before completing.
As a meerkat would say "Simples".
