Warm Wishes

I haven't quite finished the number of Christmas cards for this year, so I'm trying to come up with some fun but quick makes, using elements from my UFO box.

I figured my previously stamped card base was the perfect background for a festive food/beverage type of design. For my topper, I heat embossed my NBUS stamp by Neat and Tangled in liquid platinum embossing powder and then used some acetate to do some ink smooshing (Coral Cabana and It's a boy, CP inks). I intended to do this in a controlled manner, but then one of our cats decided to give me a helping hand by jumping onto my craft table, so I just went with it.

I'm playing at:

Jingle Belles - Festive food/drink

Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards - W ... Warm Wishes

ABC Christmas - W for Wishes

CHNC - Anything Christmas goes

SSS Wednesday - Anything goes

SSS Work it Wednesday - Holiday crafting


  1. I think your card turned out beautifully Marianne, what a great design! Your cat really is quite talented. Love the mix of pink and blue ink, and I like the way you and your cat added the stamp over the top. Fabulous candy cane striped border too.

  2. What a fun background ... love the liquid platinum embossing ... so glad you shared your holiday goodies with us at jingle belles.

  3. Haha, samen hobbyen, creatieve viervoeter...Geef hem een knuffel van mij, want je kaart is erg frivool geworden. Mooi die kleine spettertjes.
