First card for the Indigoblu challange

Hi everyone I'm super excited to be showing you today's make and my first make for the indigoblublogchallenge

The theme for this challange is your favourite stamp of the year! When i was told the theme I really could not pick! I pulled all the stamps I bought this year out and I just love them all so much it was so hard to pick one but I the one Iv picked I seem to use all the time so I think Iv picked my true faviorite! 

The amazing 'large snowflake' I use this stamp all the time and have used it throughout the year not just in my Christmas crafts but in all occasions as it makes a great background and flowers! 

Seeing as it is the last challange of the year and it's Christmas next week Iv used it to make a Christmas card, here's my card for inspiration for the challange 

Iv used the large snowflake with chariot of fire mega flakes on my card stock for the background and on vellum layered up as the main focus flake

Also as it's the last challange indigoblu are being super, super genouras with this months prize, here it is 

I now wow!!! Super prize up for grabs can't wait to see your entry's!!!

Indigoblu Christmas flowers

Morning everyone, another blog post from me, this time I'd like to share a Christmas card iv made using indigoblu stamps. For this card iv used the poinsettia, Christmas greeting stamp and gold mega flakes. 
I used the flitter glu to stamp a few of the flowers on to red card stock and used the gold flakes, cut those out and layered them up, Love how the poinsettia stamp layers up so nicely. I then used the same stamp to make the background and finally heat embossed the greeting, thanks for stoping by Laura x
