Christmas Treat & Mixed Media Inchies

Hi there. I've just had a lovely couple of days with my friend Shirley Bampton of Shirley-Bee's Stamping Stuff. She is visiting her Son and family and came to stay with me at our beach house. We managed to get in a bit of crafting as well as sightseeing.

This is Shirley at the top of the observatory Tower at Queenscliff Harbour.

Here's a closer look at the Pier

                                     This is a card for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.

What do you do when you don't have any Christmas treat stamps? You use a Snowman stamp to make a Christmas pudding:)
I've used 2 stamp sets designed by Shirley to make this card - Stamplorations 'Layered Snowman' and 'Layered Holly'. I added the custard freehand.

Here is another card using the 'Layered Snowman' which is inspired by the 'header' in the Christmas Kick-Start Challenge.

Both the above cards were coloured loosely with Copic Markers:)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

My next card is for this month's CAS Mix Up Challenge:-

I sponged Distress Inks on white card, stamped the images and white embossed. The flower images are from Atenew and the sentiment from Stamplorations.


  1. Oh, my, where to begin. I'll start with your Christmas pudding that is so creative and amazing! Love the fun snowman and I'm glad you showed what the original stamp is made for! Love, love, love those inchies with the pretty background and white embossed flowers! Three fabulous treats for us, Jenny! How fun to have a visit with Shirley! Sounds like a good time.
