RUBBER DANCE STAMPS Challenge June 2016... & Baby News!

I'm THERE. I AM! I have made some Christmas cards. I've made a pact with
myself that any card challenge I enter MUST be to create Chrissy cards. So
I can get back on track. Last time I made any was January. EEK!

I didn't 'push' it & try to use flowers! And this was really experimental.
I wanted to use one of my Rubber Dance Stamps, & found a bg one I thought
would work for Christmas. [link to it is HERE].
First, I heat embossed it onto cardstock, then attempted to blend Gelatos in.
Really didn't work. So, I tried again, this time blending the Gelatos into
the card stock first THEN heat embossing the stamp over the top. BINGO!
This is my card:
It shimmers beautifully:
Yummy! The saying I created with my Bro [Scan'n'Cut :)]
Anyways, then I was looking at my other sheet of [crappy] embossing....& a few of the 
off cuts from this card...which I cut down further & VOILA! Another card basically
created itself!!
I was chuffed with this one, too:)
So there you have it. I've done a Darnell 'two-fer', increased my Chrissy stash to 6 &
used up my scraps!

As for the Baby News - #3 has ARRIVED!!
His name is Ashton Ross Knight, weighed in at 7lb 1oz
& is just beautiful. Here he is with Mum & Dad
& me ["Ma"] just 6 hours after he was born.
Here's the whole family together. They're going to be busy!!!

Thanks for looking ~ blessings! Lizzy ♥♥♥

  6. Can't believe you are so ahead with Christmas cards already Lizzy, I won't even start until November at the earliest! These are beautiful, I love that effect on the background, reminds me of frosty windows. YOur DIL really is amazing, she looks so beautiful and serene - I was a fat blotchy muddle at that stage! Such a happy little family, you must be very proud of them xx

  7. Hiya Lizzy :D Wow look at you making Chrissy cards... Yikes! I have only just got back into creating and I am so not putting pressure on myself at this stage to start on Christmas. I can't believe that we are already June... Where has the time gone. These are beautiful though and it is a great way to kill many birds with one stone.
    Congraulations on baby #3... that is so precious and your DIL does look amazing. I am sure I didn't look like that after either of mine :D :P Love that she already has a protective older brother. The twins love Scarlett as long as I don't go near her. Paige especially doesn't like it. Have fun with him - the time goes by so fast. <3
