Snowy Owl Card

I love this cute little owl stamp from Impression Obsession stamps: I created this icy card by stamping the Cover a Card Crackle stamp on the background, embossing with white embossing powder. This created a resist for the blue Distress  Inks blended over it. I…

Christmas Fairy

Although I made this card a while ago, I couldn’t spoil the surprise by sharing it before it was opened by the recipient! This winter fairy stamp is one of my favourite stamps ever and I have coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens in…
