Here is the second part of my banner. I've only used one stamp here - a holly flourish by Hero Arts. I used it to stamp onto the red background (using Perfect Pearls), then again for the Cut n' Dry technique which I have stamped in red on gold paper for the border, and in green on kraft paper for the tree.

Texture is the challenge theme this week on the Inchybyinch blog. I'm still in Christmas mode, as you can see, and I have used fusible fibres on these inchies. Because the fibres are so sparkly, the stamped images don't show up too well in the scan.

The latest challenge on Ready-Steady-STAMP! is going to cover 4 challenges - to make one or more triangles each time and finally to use them to make a Christmas banner. We are allowed to chose our own colour scheme and as you can see, I have gone for a traditional red, green and gold. I have used some gorgeous background paper by Crafty Individuals and then embossed the edges of my triangle with glittery gold embossing powder. The poinsettias were stamped three times, cut out and then layered with foam pads. The little stars were punched from gold paper that I had first stamped and embossed with the gold ep.
Here are some inchies I made for the Inchybyinch challenge a couple of weeks ago - the theme was Halloween. The other one is for this week's challenge - White Winter. The only problem is that being mostly white, it does not show up very well in the scan!

Hi everyone, sorry I have not posted anything recently but I was stricken down with tonsilitis! I haven't had that since I was at school! I had made this card for the RSS Challenge 8 so even though it is late I thought I may as well post it anyway! I am feeling much better now so hopefully there will be more things to see soon.
