Crafty Individuals......

Morning to all you crafty bloggers, hope you are well and have enjoyed these past few warm days. Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Individuals, there are two themes for you to choose from this month, ‘Halloween Madness or Christmas Frenzy', I have used one of the new Christmas stamps that has just been launched, I love this postage style stamp  CI 420 featuring lots of previous Christmas stamps, the detail is amazing for something so small, perfect to cut up or use as a whole image which is what I have done. I coloured the stamped background using Victorian Velvet, Tea Dye, Old Paper and Broken China, I then spritzed with iridescent gold glimmer mist.

I edged the image with lace and then threaded seam binding through the lace.

The snow flake die is from Joy Crafts which I embossed with a blue, gold and white frantage powder and then added iced shaving for more iridescent bling.
The background I coloured with a Pan Pastel pale blue and then embossed the snowflake stamp CI 241 with silver tinsel embossing powder. 

Don't forget to join in the challenge you need to use at least one Craft Individuals item, and every entrant gets a discount code for a whopping 25% off their next purchase

Hugs n smiles
