LIM 1000 No 4

Another card to help Chrissie and Mandi reach 1000!  I'm getting some christmas cards done this way.... perhaps C& M you can do it again !! I'll have loads of Christmas cards done without the last minute stress! lol
The sentiment is from the EI Christmas Follage set, the snowflakeis made with a Provo Craft die.
I was playing around the other day with inks and things trying to make some Christmas backing paper. I didn't like it much and it ended up in the bits long as I don't use too much at once it looks ok?!
Actually the bit above is all  I have left lol. .. wasted quite a bit when the die  had a wobble :-)

I'm disappointed with the white ink... I never have much success with white ink! I used Adirondack Snow Cap...  do you have any tips to help me achieve crisp white stamping?

I think your backing paper looks great against the red card Suzi, I've only ever used white stazon and I hate it! I just use versamark and white EP now:) I also don't use my cuttlebug enough, only really for embossing but this Silhouette is so easy and I'm hooked:)

Another lovely card to help LIM with their target. White is a difficult one for stamping but I think the Adirondack pad has to be about the best and the Stampin Up one is pretty good as well. Never had much success with the Stazon one (binned it in disgust). I think the card or paper you stamp on has an effect and I just experiment (with mixed results).

Lovely Christmas card Suzi. I too have not had much success with white ink - I tend to use Versamark and white embossing powder. - Jacqueline xx

Hi Sue, I agree with the other comments re the white inkpads but like Aquarius I think my Adirondack is about the best. My Stazon went in the bin too! I mostly use Versamark and white EP now.

Love the card Sue and I think you bp looks great. Love that sentiment.
