Lovely new stash!

Been having fun today playing with my NEC stash! Bit limited in what I could do because our boiler has broken down and am managing with basics - i.e. card, ink and stamps and not much else - as it's tooooooooo cold to work in my craft room (brrrrrrr).

One of my favourite purchases was a pack of Inkadinkado clear stamps called Ornate Christmas (I got these from the very friendly people from Crafts U Love). I've made two cards today with the stamps, with quite different looks.

On the snowman card, his scarf is coloured with my new Xmas colours Gelly Roll pens (which I also got yesterday from Stamposaurus) and his body is coloured with Broken China Distress Ink. All the stamps are from the Inkadinkado set.

On the Seasons Greeting's card I've coloured the stamped image by blending Distress Inks (Antique Linen and Fired Brick). The swirl is a Penny Black stamp. It's a lot nicer in real life - sorry for the awful photo, it got dark fast!

The paper is from the new Basic Grey Wassail collection (have I mentioned I am addicted to Basic Grey papers???).

I hope you like them :).

See you soon,
