Creative Share… at long last…. Joyful Christmas

Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, Leeds Creative Tour, Joyful Christmas CAS Card , 2013_09

Last week saw the Stampin’ Up! UK Creative Tour come to Leeds… so I was there like a flash…. great opportunity to meet up with fellow demo friends and do some sharing…. (more on that another day!!)

So (and don’t faint Nicola!!!!) a quick post today to share the very simple Swap card I made…. though I have to add that …although it has been the simplest Christmas card sample in my craft room… it is the one that has caught most people eyes & produced the most comments…. so I decided to make loads of them to swap with my fellow demos….

The gorgeous poinsettia image is simply stamped in the new Encore metallic inks from the Autumn Winter catalogue … which are fabulous….. no more heat embossing for bulk cards for me!!!! And then just a dot of the Dazzling Details to add some definition to the image……

Here is the alternative colour version… which was actually the most popular on the night… ( though for some reason Blogger appears to be having problems with it… so you may need to click on the gap to find the picture!!)
