About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Crafting with Dragonflies challenge 70 - white on white

Challenge 70 this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies is white on white

I have embossed white card with Santa's sleigh embossing folder.
Stamped Christmas Wishes .

The above card doesn't show very well so I tried making another card.  This card didn't scan too well either so I tried darkening it.  That has given it a blue tinge but the card and the velum and the lace are all white.

Embossed white card with star border.  Stamped angel and sentiment with versamark onto velum.  Heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Attached velum to card with white star brads.  Added white lace.  

I hope you will go over to Crafting with Dragonflies and see the lovely work by the design team and join in the challenge.

I would like to add these cards to the following:

Craft Rocket challenges 28 - white on white

Christmas cards all year round - Santa and/or elf (card 1)

Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything Christmas

White on white is soooo difficult to photograph so I leave them to my hubby and blame him when you can't see them - lol!! I've seen this folder so I definitely know what it is!! Lovely card!! Thank you so much for entering the Christmas Cards All Year Round (Use a Santa and/or elf) Challenge this month, lots of luck and I hope we see you again very soon. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT

White on white can be so hard to do, but both of these turned out beautifully! The texture on both is what really finishes them off. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
