Christmas at The Stamp Spot

One of the things I love about being on a DT is that sometimes you get to play with things you wouldn't usually have - and it's always fun to see what goodies arrive in my DT kit! This angel from Stampendous is one of those things! Marcia over at The Stamp Spot sent me a stamped image to play with and I have decided she's just gorgeous. I had seen this stamp before but had honestly only given it a passing glance! But to have the image stamped in front of me and then to see it come to life with colour - hmmmm - I think she'll be on my next order!!! It just goes to show you need to REALLY look at images sometimes and imagine them stamped up!

My daughter saw this card sitting on the coffee table and asked who had sent it - because she really liked it! She was surprised when I told her it was mine - and not finished yet, I still had to put on the bling! She thought it was soo not my style - but that again is the fun of experimenting! I actually love this card and the papers from Bo Bunny have been the perfect choice. I used both sides of the paper and was surprised how different they were - but how fabulous they looked together!

My image has been cut using my nesties - with the same size nestie being cut in 2 colours to frame her - I trim the end points off and then split them in 2 down the middle. To bling her up I added Dazzling Diamonds to the tips of her wings and the base of her dress, and some Kaiser pearls on the card.

The beautiful stamp, DPs, flowers and nesties are all available from The Stamp Spot - and don't forget to stop in at The Stamp Spot Blog to see what other fabulous inspiration the DT have for you!

Well hun, I agree with you, I love it too! This really is so very different to your style but in a really good way! Sometimes it's nice to go out of our own comfort zone and we learn new things in doing so and WOW did you learn! Your colouring is amazing as always, just ABSOLUTELY gorgeous!
Hugs, Kel

This is a super card. The angel with all the gliter on her wings is so pretty and your paper choice co ordinates so well with the colours u used to on her. l think it is sometimes great that by taking us out of our comfort zone we are able to challenge ourselves. You did real good Here GIRL! Hugs xx

Oh Deb, I love those papers too and the Angel is beautiful. Sometimes I see a card made up and I love the image, yet it is something I wouldn't have looked twice at until I saw it completed. Very very nice.

Yes Debbie, this is something a little different to your usual style but the colouring again is gorgeous and I love the way you have organised the Nestie layers - you are so clever with your ideas!
