Welcome to another blog post featuring some of the amazing Christmas themed goodies available now. I love the Mini Stamps from the Naughty or Nice Collection – simple to use and easy to make a statement with on your next project. This stamp is the one I might just chose to use for all my Christmas Cards this year – gorgeous and elegant.
One of my favourite techniques is simply plain inking a background, and admittedly with all the amazing products and must-haves on the market it is one of the things we do less and less. It was time to dust off the amazing little inks and make some magic with blending backgrounds.

This week on the Kaisercraft blog we are using Decorative Dies on projects – I love these textured dies for various reasons. But I think their simplicity is the best thing about them.
You can dress them up or keep things simple like I did this time.
I had a piece of white cardstock with some ink stains on it and used that to cut the Textured Brickwork die out of the inked parts.
This created an interesting effect, that is instant and beautiful.
The butterfly stamped on acetate was folded in half and attached using a brad.
The background has some gorgeous blue pattern on it created using Infusions. Such a beautiful and unexpected effect that I love with this pink and green paper combo.
Coloured paint splats in shades of pink, green, blue and black pull everything together.
And of late I am really loving this simplistic style of scrapping – Perfect for creativity and using up my odd stash of embellishments.
