Another xmas card and news that the full heart punch is available while stocks last

Back home and I slept so well last night. Bliss!

And I'm back to having all my crafting supplies to hand. My plan is a little light studying today just to finish up some of my notes from the last week, lots of crafting and then it's off out to the theatre tonight to see Calendar Girls.

I felt so well organised, making my xmas card for last week's Stamp With Us challenge (only another 70 or 80 to go, lol), that I couldn't resist making another one using the gorgeous Dasher stamp from the new Mini.

This is one of the new single stamps and he matches one of the images we have in the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' kit. I used him as my focal point combined with some Serene Snowflakes.

Stamp sets: Dasher, Serene Snowflakes
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Ink: Platinum Shimmer Paint
Punch: Eyelet Border

This is a very quick and easy card with just a little drying time for the shimmer paint. I daubed the shimmer paint direct to stamp using my sponge dauber and stamped the trio of snowflakes repeatedly down the sides of my card, rotating the stamp each time. This background was matted and layered onto a Not Quite Navy blank. Dasher was stamped in the same way and matted onto Very Vanilla that had been punched either side with the Eyelet Border. Super quick for stamping a stack of xmas cards.

We've just been advised today that there are still some Full Heart punches left in stock from our promotion last month and available at £12.50 (order no. 113693). This punch works great alone or teamed with stamps from I {Heart} Hearts, Simply Said and also last year's Sale-a-bration Polka Dot Punches set. I used it on the top heart on the card below.

It's available while stocks last but then you won't be able to get hold of it again until the new Idea Book and Catalogue comes out in October. Email me to order yours.

Have a great weekend.

Lovely card Sara - I was SO happy to see Dasher was coming across the Atlantic to see us!
Just realised you had dropped off my 'blogs to visit' list, so I had missed popping over recently. You are now firmly back on my list!
