Christmas is family time ...

Here is my 2nd post sharing another of my projects for the new Polka Doodles stamp soup release  and this time I have mixed some of the elements from the CD with stamping. When I saw the tags, I just had to use them ...

I printed off the sentiment tags making sure they were different sizes so that I could make a zig zag card ... but with tags! I inked around the edge to age them a little. Once the tags were in place, I began decorating them.

Front page: I have used the poinsettia petals to create my flower with the small embellie stamp to create the centre flower. The floral tendrils are another stamp from the set coloured with distress ink and then cut out.

For the middle panel, I printed out the stocking and decorated it with stamped flowers and leaves. Again I have tried to give the sentiment "centre stage".

The last panel has been kept very simple as this is where you would write your message, with another stamped flower. The red dots you see on each panel, are made using glue plus ultra fine red glitter. The card came together quite quickly and for once I didn't faff whilst decorating it!

Nikky is on twice today, 2pm and 7pm, so do make sure you tune in to C&C. However if you can't, you can watch the shows on line on the C&C site for up to 7 days.
