Just sharing a couple of simple card designs since my mojo is still on vacation.

I love this big poinsettia stamp from Penny Black called Christmas Pride. I embossed it in white, coloured it with Distress Inks and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. The background was colored with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Broken China and sprayed with Perfect Pearls. Yup, everything is a-shimmering! Finally I added the sentiment on a piece of vellum.

Same look, just different colours. The background was coloured with the seasonal Distress Ink Evergreen Bough. I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain to colour this flower (inspired by Jill Foster's flower colouring found here) and I covered it with Rock Candy Stickles.

Wishing everyone an inky weekend!


  1. I SO disagree about your mojo, Sue, these are lovely, I imagine even more so if we could see the shimmer more.....I ADORE your white poinsettia against the beautiful aqua!

  2. I sure wish I could make cards like this when I have no mojo! They are both so beautiful, Sue! Love the gorgeous colors and shimmer!

  3. Sue, these are simple and stunning! Looking at these, I highly doubt that your mojo is on vacation.

  4. I would love to make cards like this on a good day, Sue! They are both gorgeous and I love the colors of the 2nd one.

  5. These are both perfectly gorgeous cards, Sue!!
