I know another post so soon I can’t believe it myself!

I know don’t die of shock, I have just finally worked out how to link all my ‘blogs’ so I am not typing 2 blogs all the time, and I have figured out how to ‘post date’ my posts so I can type this on Wednesday and you wont see it till Friday and I don’t have to do anything..Cool eh.

Anyway down to business.

Again I am using a ‘non – Christmas’ stamp set, this is Pocket Silhouettes. This has to be one of my best selling sets, might have something to do with it being the most usedSmile.


For this card I punched out a 1 3/8” out of a post it note. This is slightly sticky on the back and is used as a mask. You position this in the centre at the top of your card then just stamp you Pocket silhouettes on top. Go around in a circle, here I have used Old Olive and a little Artichoke.

Now pick up a sponge and again go around your circle very gently building up your colour until the desired amount is reached.

Now for your berries you have 2 options. Here I just grabbed my Real Red Marker and added a few berries. I have also used the other stamp in this set with berry like dots to do this as well.

Now you can remove your post it note and add a bow. Your card is now finished…..But wait there's more…if you wish you can punch out the centre, like I have done here, and add a greeting to the inside.
