Northern Lights Christmas Card

I have finally managed to finish my Northern Lights Christmas card that I started at the beginning of the week.

I wanted to try the emboss-resist technique so I cut a sheet of Whisper White cardstock in half and heat embossed the tree images on both pieces.  I sponged the northern lights on one of them but when I was finished 2 of the trees looked pink so I threw it away and sponged the northern lights on the other piece.  Again I had pink trees so I posted a photo of it on Pootles Craft Forum because there are so many talented artists on there and I knew they would give me some advice.  

Tracy Elsom commented advising me that Melon Mambo and the retired Blackberry Bliss inks cause this because they have a really strong pigment.  Guess who used both of these colours : )  I thought I was going to have to throw it away and start again but thanks to Tracy's advice I could continue making the card.  YAY!

Enjoy the Ride Card

In April Hubby and I went to Telford for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Live event.  Demonstrators who attended were given a copy of the new Stampin' Up! 2016/17 Annual Catalogue, they got to try the new products and were able to pre-order some of the products too.

As soon as I saw the One Wild Ride Stamp Set it went at the top of my 'Wish List'.
