Something for my bloggies!

Hi guys!

I don’t really have time to be here … but didn’t want you to get withdrawals GRIN 😉 … so here is a NEW Christmas card …

I based this on the latest Stamping 411 sketch challenge! (Brain is a bit on overload at the moment). Can you see the pretty Red Glimmer Paper I used for the “ribbon” effect! I am loving this gorgeous new bling!!! The sponged balls were created using a punched circle mask.

So … why don’t you pop over to the Stamping 411 site … and check out all the gorgeous entries for this fab sketch! A great CAS … handy for those bulk Christmas Cards. (Still have over 20 to make!) I have gotta fly! Hugs xx

PS: Will pop back to reply to all your lovely comments asap! xx


  1. Your baubles are GORGEOUS Andrea – the use of that vine to decorate them was inspired!
    – Hi Debbie! So nice of you to pop by … and leave some blog love! Hugs xx

    This is gorgeous. Such a great idea if you don’t have a bauble stamp set like me!
    – Hi sis! Hope you see my feature post … of your cards for Gav! Hugs xx

    wow oh wow, what more can i say, wow i love this card, it might have to CASE it, oh if that is alright by you.

    Again i have been popping in, but haven’t had too much time to stop for long, i have been busy with Christmas requests and birthdays, so many to which i haven’t even been able to find time to blog what i have been doing, but i am hoping to fix that very soon.

    But all of your creations lately have been brilliant as per usual

    Take care
    – Hi Sharna! I so get where you are coming from! I honestly haven’t had a free minute to blog hop for several days. I feel really slack … but … it has just not happened! But … it is not because of a lack of interest! I just can’t wait for a day I can stop long enough with a cup of coffee to check all my fav’s out! Hugs xx PS: Feel free to CASE … I am always flattered when someone copies a creation!


  4. Great sponging, the baubles look great. Fab take on the sketch! Fi x
    – Thanks Fi! Hope you enjoyed your time in Hawaii!? Hugs xx


  5. Oooh! Fancy with the glitter paper ribbon Andrea. I like the effect. I wouldn’t have thought to use it that way. Love the sponged baubles too!

    I hope your week has gone ok!

    See you soon,

    Love Jenny xx
    – I am just taking one day at a time at the moment! I am hanging out for 2012! I have had enough of 2011 … it hasn’t stopped all year … one crisis to the next … and now I feel like I am still chasing my tail! Surely next year WILL BE quieter??? Pretty Please! Hugs xx

    I am loving this!!! The dimension on each ornament is perfect and such an inspired idea to use Vintage Vogue.
    – Thanks Kim! VV did work really well on those baubles … didn’t it! Thanks for popping by! Hugs xx

    Loving the reverse sponging Andrea and echo the sentiments of those before me in lauding the use of the VV stamp set on the baubles. There is that colour Garden Green again….hmmmmmm. Love the way you have used the glimmer paper too….the bow is AWESOME!!!
    I still have MANY Chrissy cards to do as well and now have resigned myself to the fact that this year they may not get done. I hope you achieve your goals darl. ooxx
    – I managed 5 more last night … but still have another 25 or so to do!!!!!!! I am beginning to think … like you … they are not going to happen this year! But … then … what would I do with the 30 that I have made??? Hugs xx


  9. Gabbi says:

    LOVE the baubles – so pretty!
    This card is really an inspiration!
    Thanks for sharing!
    – It was a Q&E one … and so effective! The glimmer paper adds a lovely pizzazz! Thanks Gabbi! Hugs xx


  10. Melissa says:

    love this card, those baubles are fantastic, love the two tone colouring of them too, very special!!! Love it xx
    – I was having stamping withdrawals …. so it was nice to pick up stamps & ink and play for a short time! 🙂 Hugs xx

    Gorgeous Andrea! Love the masked baubles – they look so real. That vine stamp from VV is one of my faves – it’s a great go to stamp for so many designs. The red glimmer paper ribbons look fabulous too. Hugs 🙂
    – Yes … I always love using my VV stamp set! It is soooooooo versatile! Hugs xx
