Wish Upon A Star

Happy Greetings to you!

Yep, another one ...


Dies: 'Reindeer Flight', 'Birch Trees', 'Vintage Tidings' and 'Mini Reindeer' - all by Sizzix / Tim Holtz. Also used woodware mini snowflake punch.

Embossing: Tim Holtz 'Birch' Texture fade.

Stamp: Stampers Anonymous / Tim Holtz 'Stripes and Holiday'. Using Sizzix Stamp Platform I 'turned' stripes into plaid.

Embellishments: Tim Holtz Idea-ology 'Christmas Adornments' and 'Christmas Story Sticks', Ribbon, string and pearls from stash.

Media: Ranger Distess Ink in 'Candied Apple' and Cracked Pistachio'. Snow-Tex. Glossy Accents. Ranger Distress Glitter Dust 'Vintage Platinum'. Ranger Stickles 'Mercury Glass'. (Last is same shade as glitter dust so if fine glitter dust rubs off one can cover any blips with stickles). Distress Crayon 'Picket Fence'.

I'm glad to say I'm in for the rest of the day to stay warm as a storm brews up outside.
Wishing you a cosy evening too,
Nicola x
