Embossing at Crafty Cardmakers

Goodness me what a fortnight I've had!  Both kids got a bad cold and were off school then OH and myself were both poorly with it then when I think we're on a clear run till christmas both kids got a tummy bug 48 hours apart so spent last week nursing poorly ick kids again!  Had to laugh though as Miss Molly threw up all over her dad haha!  He was horrified and couldnt get in the shower fast enough lol!  Well to say I was tired out was an understatement so apologies if I'm way behind schedule as I've not had time or energy to go on PC.

Anyway I'm here now and got a quick christmas card to show you using my favourite starburst stains from The Stampman - These are ***ON OFFER*** at the moment so grab them whilst theyre at this price which is £12 a set so they're HALF PRICE wooo hoooo!!!  The set I have used is Holiday Wreath and they are nice and dark perfect for christmas *but* you can also add some in a pot and add extra water to get a really beautiful pink and green for spring cards too, it really is a cracking set so don't miss out!  You can win a set from The Stampman as that is the prize over at Crafty Cardmakers and you still have a whole week to enter - we'd just like to see some heat embossing!

For this challenge I used the Holiday Wreath starburst stains set which is our prize from The Stampman this fortnight.  Its a gorgeous set and you can also make lovely spring pinks and greens with it too.  I've stamped the NOEL stamp and embossed with Moonglow embossing powders (from a christmas set) over the holiday wreath starburst stains then mounted on white and more Starburst Stains with 3d pads so it really sticks out.  The swirl in the corner is also embossed and I added sticky gems (That come in 4 sizes on one sheet - fab!)

Do hope you can join in the challenge and you still have a week to enter to win a fab set of Holiday Wreath Starburst Stains!

I love the colours you have used Vix and the CAS style of the card. Hope you are all feeling better now and don't catch any more bugs until AFTER Christmas!
