Show me the way to Amaryllis


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Beccy’s Place as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here I’ve taken the chance to make a Christmas card featuring a Bildmalarna stamp.Sadly these cute little beauties are no longer available but I’ve managed to seek a few out here and there 🙂 This is Mimosa – Amaryllis and she’s been coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils after being stamped onto Neenah Desert Storm card.Some Frantage has been scattered around the edges.She’s been layered up onto some Forever Friends Christmas Kraft Notes papers.The die cut chevron pieces have actually been snipped in half to make them stretch across the width of the card and as the gap is behind the image nobody will ever know…except I’ve just told you 😉 A stamped sentiment has been added along with a die cut poinsettia…well I don’t have an amaryllis but it’s in keeping with the flower theme!

Dies to Die For still have some of these stamps left in their Retirement Sale.Unfortunately not his one – I think I snapped the last one up!No connection to the company,just a happy customer 🙂
