Hip To Be Square

This months theme at the One - Layer Simplicity Challenge is Hip To Be Square and I've made my first Christmas card of the year for the challenge.

I stamped the squares and then masked them before stamping the poinsettia and colouring it with watercolour pencils.
The stamps I used are
Rubbadubbado for the squares.
Joanna Sheen for the poinsettia.
Inkadinkado for the sentiment.

This is another CAS card that I've made. I'm not very keen on this card as I stamped the image onto pearl card and I don't like pearl card very much, the image didn't stamp very clearly.

The stamp is an Elusive Images/Chocolate Baroque one and I stamped it with black soot distress ink and embossed it with clear powder. I watercoloured it with distress inks.


  1. Beautiful cards, love the square one especially. Valerie

  2. How fun - I love the idea of looking through the window and the poinsettia. I'm sure that the poppy card is very shimmery in real life - it's always interesting to see how different supplies behave differently - shimmery cardstock definitely softens the impression and may not be what you want if you prefer a crisp image. It's a lovely image and I don't think it's in any way lessened for the softness. So glad you joined us at OLS!

  3. They both look great Hazel!
    Thanks for a lovely day yesterday :)
