CHRISTMAS DUOS

Whoopie it's Saturday!
Don't you just love the weekends?

So are we all 'Autumned' out after last week's 
You certainly created some super-duper creations and I do love the colours
I've had terrible trouble with blogger commenting this week so
if I didn't get to you... apologies ... it certainly wasn't through lack of trying
but a techi issue that hopefully gets sorted quickly.

So onto this week's Less is More Challenge and it's a
One Layer Card - showing 2 of something

I've gone into a Christmas frenzie BUT
(I seriously need to get some Christmas cards in the bag)
and especially as I received some new goodies from the Clearly Besotted release 
that I simply couldn't wait to ink up ... so here goes 



Cute as a button (don't you think) the Rockin' Robin set from CBS 
which consists of mini building stamps to create different looks.
The images are inked with Memento Inks with some extra inking for shadow
The spotty red tummies are 'winked' with Stella and I've added
fluffy stuff and glamour dust to the branch to give it that snowy effect.

I'm also linking this card up to the latest Clearly Besotted Challenge,
where the theme is Christmas...I mean with all these gorgeous CBS products
used in this post it would be rude not to!




For this one I've used a technique by Jennifer McGuire seen here called
Partial Stencilling using a 'wave' stencil from Memory Box and 
a Sizzix Framelit Triangle die; inked with TH Mowed Lawn.
 To make the snow mounds I've used Mama Elephant: Landscape Trio dies 
to create a mask and inked with TH Salty Ocean.
 The Sentiment is Clearly Besotted: Sweet Little Sentiments
and to finish some glamour dust and gems from my stash. 



Next up is another Clearly Besotted creation using the
Signature Christmas stamp set and sentiment from Christmas Sparkle.
The baubles are embossed in metallic silver sparkle EP from Ranger,
hand-drawn strings and a few gems for added sparkle.


Ok lovely crafty people it's your turn now and I can't wait to drop in 
on your blogs to check out your creations.

Have a fun and crafty weekend and thanks for stopping by.
