Wishes Of The Season

Hello Everyone
A wee while ago one of the stamps released by Crafty Individuals was CI-408 Ornamental Wishes
The cards I am sharing in this post were all essentially made in the same way, with the Wishes stamp as the focal on each card. wishestwoI might have dabbled with quite a bit of red paint recently but I was happy to return to soothing neutrals!wishesoneA little variation in the form of a charm. wishesthreeOne of my favourite products for Christmas cards (and beyond) this year, has been Maimeri Iridescent Paste (available from That’s Crafty).  A gorgeous product to use because it gives a beautiful shimmer, look at the photograph below which I angled to allow daylight to catch the snowflakes stencilled onto the background.detailI have been using it with this lovely snowflake stencil. I have even used it on fabric although I wouldn’t recommend using it on fabric which will be washed, what I used it for is purely ornamental.one.1There is no reason this stamp couldn’t be used to send Birthday Wishes or Good Luck Wishes, I just happened to like it as a message for Wishes of the Season and many of you will know that Wishes is the word I use whenever I send an e-mail, card or when commenting during a blog visit.
As always, thank you for taking the time to visit here.

    Love this trio of cards, Lynne!! Oh, I just love the textured, snowflake backgrounds!! (I think that Maimeri Iridescent paste is going on the wish list!) The neutral/natural color palette of white on kraft is so pretty and gentle–just like you 🙂 Gorgeous creations, Lynne!! Merry Christmas to you and your family!! XOXO-Shari
