Sweet Stamps- Simple Christmas

  We're creating 'Simple Christmas- this week at Sweet Stamps .



 I stamped and embossed the image in Gold, and painted in Inka Golds. Just dab a touch of the Inka Gold on your craft mat and dip a paintbrush in it and viola- sparkly paint!  It is really quick and easy- hardest part is taking a picture : )
 The cardstock I used is shimmery- both the blue and the white (Cryogen White) are from Paper Temptress.
 If I had to pick my top 10 favorite items from Sweet Stamps- this beautiful image of the baby Jesus and Mary would certainly make the list, and the Queen's Gold Embossing Powder too!

 Here are the SweetStamps supplies I used for this card:
