Purple Trimmings

I love this stamp set. I normally use traditional colours for my Christmas cards, but I decided to try out Lilacs and Purples for a change. The photo below shows the top of the card all sparkly with glitter. I used the Polka Dot Background stamp inked with Versamark and stamped onto Elegant Eggplant card. Then sprinkled with Heat and Stick powder and blasted with heat gun, then sprinkled with Silver Glitter from the Fine Galaxy range of the Stampin' Glitter. Here is a close up. Not a great photo I am afraid because the weather has been so dull and dreary the last few days.
The ornaments have been stamped in versamark first, before the colour ink, then clear embossed to give that shiny affect, that Christmas baubles have.
Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Polka Dot BG, Occasional Greetings
Card: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace, Versamark
Accessories: Silver Stampin' Glitter, Eyelet Border Punch, Heat Gun,
