Creative Expressions Card

I received a fabulous set of stamps from CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS a couple of days ago, it's a new set of Christmas stamps designed by Sam Poole called Stylish Christmas 1.

This is my first DT piece with them.
I started of with a white card blank and stamped the flourishes round the edge with fired brick Distress ink then went round the edge with brushed corduroy Distress ink. I swiped some fired brick over some corrugated card then spread some stickles over it and tied some raffia round it, then attached it to the card. I stamped the robin onto some white card with brushed corduroy, then distressed the edges and coloured them with brushed corduroy then stamped NOEL with fired brick. I coloured the robin's breast with a red pencil and added some stickles. I made the poinsettia with red card and the Spellbinders layered poinsettia die. I covered them with stickles and added some gold beads.

  6. Wow Hazel, you are quick off the mark too! And what a beautiful card you've made. Those poinsettias really finish it off!!
    Do you know what the image at the top left is meant to be. I thought perhaps a tree. It will probably be so obvious when someone tells me.
