Sparkly Reindeer

I have a couple of simple embossed Christmas cards to share today...featuring a new (to me) set of Chocolate Baroque stamps that I won on the We Love Chocolate Baroque Challenge last month, and which arrived in the post this morning. The set is called 'Filigree Reindeer'...and I couldn't resist mounting them and inking them up after I'd finished work for the day. On the first card, I heat embossed one of the reindeer using WOW 'Metallic Platinum Sparkle' embossing glitter on a teal card blank along with one of the sentiments from the set. I couldn't resist adding a little red pearl for his nose.

On the second card, I used the largest stamp from the set...a beautiful snowy night time scene...heat embossing it using WOW 'Midnight Dream' embossing powder...a gorgeous blue, but with specks of of other colours in the blend. 

These embossing powders are so pretty, but a nightmare to get a decent photo of becasue they're so sparkly! This angle shows a few of the other colours:

Me again Helen, I started commenting too early today as I saw you had used your Chocolate Baroque prize and made that beautiful card and then totally forgot to thank you for entering it into this month challenge.
