If you have been following my blog for 12 months you might remember my Christmas Sparkle cards from last year and looking back now I see I made that post on 14th september 2008 so its a little freaky that I’m posting this card 12 months to the day – nearly exactly! Actually its been sitting waiting its photo shoot for a few days so if I’d been a little more organised …….. lol.

I liked that design so much last year I decided on a new version using the Snow Swirled set.  When I got this set I wasnt real sure I’d like it but I’m loving using it! I made that embossed card the other week and I have an idea for a class using this set which I’ll try to get designed and up over the next week or so.

Christmas Sparkle 2009

You cant see the detail in the background of the card very well with the photo here as the top layer is done on White Glossy its very hard to get a good photo without that horrid ‘flash spot’!

You could make this on Whisper White rather than Glossy White if you wanted to but the sponging is alot nicer and softer on the gloss.

I just love this sentiment from the snow swirled set too – its how Christmas should be – full of love and peace.

Stamps: Snow Swirled
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Glossy White
Inks: Encore Silver, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: 5/8″ Brocade Blue grosgain ribbon, Oval Template, Stampin Sponges, Small Rhinestone Brad.

I am very pleased with how this card turned out and hope you like it too. Ring or Email me today to book your Stamp A Stack in so you can make some of this card for your friends and family for Christmas!

Now I must be off to finish the birthday present for my Aunt – we share our birthday so I am going over there for morning tea tomorrow.


  1. Hey Birthdy girl! Many happy returns for yesterday and I hope you had a lovely day. I haven’t visited for a while and I love all the latest things you’ve been doing. Love the simplicity of the Tree Trimming cards – I love crisp white cards and I absolutely love the sparkle card – I remember seeing it last year and great to see how versatile our stamps are that we can remake our favourites with new favourites. Thanks for your help this week too. Have a great weekend and try and stretch that birthday as long as you can! xo
