Twinkle, twinkle...

Hi everyone and welcome. It's been a while since I last posted and I'm aware that this poor blog is in danger of collecting a few cobwebs without some love and attention (though those may be welcome for next week's spooky project... !)

Before sharing today's projects I'd like to thank you to everyone who dropped by to see me and the IndigoBlu crew at the Stamp Magic show in Doncaster last weekend. It was great to see familiar faces and some very enthusiastic stampers throughout the day. I had the pleasure of working with some of the new Christmas designs and made up some samples so you can see what they can do...

(click on each image for a closer look)

This first card was made using some Christmas Compendium Mixed Media Papers with torn vellum and some festive foliage die cuts. I love that the Laurel Leaves stencil can be used with modelling paste and StazOn Studio Glaze dots for more dimensional foliage. The new Twinkle Star A6 stamp works perfectly with ink, white embossing powder and of course Mega Flakes.


Two projects here; the little money box house was painted with black Gee-Sso Good! before being covered in Fontastic Ephemera Mixed Media Papers (which are on offer right now!) Some die cut Christmas foliage (including some cut from card covered in Chariot of Fire Mega Flakes) with added glitter, white Gee-Sso Good! 'snow' and those Studio Glaze dots again added the perfect trim.

The little gift box was cut from black card before being stamped on each side with the Christmas Icons set. Chocolate Box Mega Flakes work perfectly on a dark background and a touch of Goldfinger paint around the edges really helps to set it off.


The final two projects now; another little box was covered in a layer of Postbox Red paint before being stamped with the Twinkle Star stamp again. White gesso stamping and edging give it a slightly Scandinavian feel. This time the Christmas Icons were stamped onto the Christmas Compendium papers using StazOn ink before being cut, distressed and layered onto the sides.

And finally to the door hanger; this was also covered in the Christmas Compendium papers, embossed and layered with the Twinkle Star stamp and stencilled with the Laurel Leaves stencil and modelling paste. The lettering on the front was die cut and I used the new Silent Night Dinkie stamp on the reverse (isn't that what most parents crave on Christmas Eve?!!!)


Hope that's given you a few ideas for using some of the new IndigoBlu Christmas stamps.

For a few more festive ideas there are still a few copies of the first IndigoBlu Inspirations magazine available on the website (they all sold out on Hochanda). There are step by step projects included, free papers inside and even a free limited edition stamp!

I'm off to get spooky for Frilly and Funkie. Whatever you're up to this weekend have a good one and take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx

  25. What wonderful Christmas creations, Jenny. The card is so charming, with the tiny toy soldiers, gilded star and fab touches of greenery. Will definitely have to put the twinkle star on my wish list! The money box is great - love the kraft and black, and the papers work so well for some festive decoupage on the door hanger. A wealth of inspiration as always.
