I used the Frame It set from Waltzingmouse Stamps as my theme and I was trying to get a trelliswork effect for the background using the Papertrey background basics - Tin Types. It's really easy to mask off the frame with post-it notes - what did we do before repositionable pads!!
The first one up has the background stamped in Smokey Shadow ink and the flower set from PTI's Four of a Kind is stamped in Chartreuse and Raspberry Fizz.
This one is background stamped in Chai ink and the dahlias and leaves coloured with copic markers. I used my dahlia die set to cut the leaves and flower - so much easier than cutting them out by hand.
Did you have a great Christmas? We had a very relaxing one and I intend to spend the next few days playing with some new stamps that my friend Betty bought over from the US for me - I have a whole two weeks off work - bliss!
I am shockingly late in showing my last calendar page. Possibly my favourite one of the lot - I have a beautiful amaryllis blooming right now in a pot here at home - all four trumpets are out and it is stunning.
I went with deep red colours - well it is December!

I used lots of bits and bobs on this card - Pretty Pastels paper, aqua and chocolate card, aqua ribbon along with pearls and die cuts. I also stamped the woodgrain background stamp onto the mat stack die but it's hard to see in the picture.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the card edge and made it into a tri-fold card.
As there are a few pearls on this creation I'm putting it in for the lastest challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey which this fortnight is to use pretty pearls!
