Papermill Direct have some lovely platinum pearlised card on offer this week. It’s a lovely dark grey colour so you can use it all year round.
I’ve made some Christmas tags with it though and as usual the Papermill card went through my Silhouette like a dream
I used some Papermill white card which I embossed with my favourite embossing folder – swiss dots by Cuttlebug. I then added some red polka dot washi tape around the tag and die heat embossed on the platinum card with a Hero Arts stamp set called Naughty or Nice and some Stampendous detail white embossing powder which is my go to white embossing powder.
I also used some Lawn Fawn Hemp cord, a jingle bell from Dovecraft and Basic Grey buttons
You can get 75 sheets of this wonderful, 300gsm cardstock for only £7.50. Total bargain in my opinion!
There is also free shipping on orders over £25 until 9am on Monday 16 December 2013

New challenge day over at Charisma Cardz and the challenge theme is favourite word.
I’ve chosen “happy” as mine – because more often than not, I am
I’ve used a digi by Dr. Digis, one of this weeks sponsors.
December is always a crazy busy month so I hope you’ll forgive me for missing a week on my Countdown to Christmas series last week – although I guess technically, it was still November when I missed it!
Anyway, 17 days til the big day! Woohoo!! I cannot wait to sink my teeth into some turkey! Oh and the brussel sprouts – LOVE brussel sprouts!
I have a paper stocking to share this week. It is now living on my Chrisrmas tree and each day from 12th December to Christmas day there will be a different little note left in it for hubby. I know, I’m a hopeless romantic!
I made it from the Stocking Lace Up cut file by Amy Robinson on the Silhouette Store. It is made from White linen and white hammered cardstock from Papermill Direct although I inked up the edges of the papers with Wheat Versa Magic chalk ink (my favourite chalk ink in the world) for a vintage/shabby chic look.
I used a kabillion eyelets and then laced the stocking closed with some gold metallic hemp cord from Lawn Fawn – I never really use a lot of eyelets so it’s a good way to use them up for me. Before that though, I embossed the stocking with a wood grain embossing folder. I had to emboss it in stages since the stocking was too large for the embossing folders but you can’t really see the join lines (don’t look too closely!) hehe.
For embellishments, I used my Silhouette to cut out a heart from the hammered white cardstock and the starburst snow flake from the white linen card. You can totally seen the wonderful texture in the photo above. I also used more of the hemp cord, a Maya Road Christmas tree paper clip, some wood veneers from Studio Calico and some Teresa Collins sequins.
