Silent Night

Well at long last i have managed to make the a Christmas card with my new SU stamp Silent night. I have seen so many lovely cards made with this stamp, all different colours have been used. I have used night of navy ink and the glittered with some glamour dust to give that lovely glistening effect. The card stock is also Night Of Navy, patterned papers are from the designer series bashful blue. I sadly don't have any Christmas greetings stamps so used one from my stash which i do believe is Stamp away. The brads and ribbon are also SU, MS doily punch for the frilly border.
I need to make some really quick Christmas cards so may just have a quick play this morning.
I hope the weather isn't to bad where you are?? Its sunshine and showers here in Cheshire, much like its been all week.
Oh i am hoping some kind blogger may be able to help me with editing my photos so that i have a plain white background :) I have PSP but just can't work it out :(

Hiya Sonia, fab card, I love SU products unfortunately I cannot afford another set of crafting goodies, I am getting cabin fever already in my craft room its so cramped and it is quite a size, for my white background I bought two cheap white canvas painting boards from the works and put one on the desk and one against the wall and hey presto, photographic studio ha ha, hope this helps Happy Crafting Sue xx

Great card sonia, loe this colour. Fab paper piercing too my fav technique at the moment lol. To achieve a white background just put white card behind your card before you take the picture. HTH.

Sonia, this is beautiful. I am just waiting for my stamp to come.
I usually trim off any background on PSP9, but it doesn't work very well, as I always seem to move the camera when I am taking the photo lol
