WOYWW Merry Christ-Moose !

Well I got to make a few Christmas things this past weekend and my desk is looking busy !

Meet Magnus the Christmoose !
I bought the kit at the NEC the last weekend and had great fun painting the pieces and making him !
I plan to add a couple of Christmasmassy trimmings - but not until I get my decorations make it down from the roof space next month !

Next were a few Christmas cards ...

These are decoupage cards in the Wellington At Christmas card making kit - I really do like this cute bear !!

And here are two cards using a technique we saw on the Inkylicious stand at the NEC - using an aperture  stencil, pearlescent white ink pad and their stamps - plus a little Stickles for glitz !

And these are using Cardio stamps ...

Here is a new stencil I am playing around with ... I thought this was a really striking image ! I have added clear sparkly Stickles but it doesn't really show on this picture ...
And don't faint but I have finally finished my Scandi Christmas Quilt Topper ! Here it is lain across my bed - it is designed to fit across the centre of the Scandi throw I have for the bed - phew so glad to be finished !
Have a great crafty week !

    Love your Christmas cards - am wondering what the Inkylicious technique is as it is very pretty, but then they all are. Your cute Moose made me smile.
