John's Launch, The Sequel. . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Have you got over the excitement from yesterday's news?

Its lovely to see John's own brand being so well received. Thank you also for your kind comments on yesterday's post. Don't get used to me posting everyday lol!!! Its just for a few days to show some of John's products in use.
Welcome to those new visitors who have popped by and to Trace, Sarah, Wanda, Rhanna and Hazel.F who have kindly pressed the "follow" button. Thank you all.

Now, today's card is, I think, my first Christmas card of the year (and its only July lol!!!) but its a start and I was encouraged by these delightful stamps.

White, aqua and platinum card
John Next Door Waves Duo Mask
John Next Door Winter Flowers stamp set
Memento Dew Drop Teal Zeal ink pad
Silver Sharpie pen
Teeny weeny silver bling
Teeny star bling

I used the mask to emboss the aqua card. I use masks more for embossing rather than stencilling as I don't like to get too inky lol!!! That's partly down to my then leaving inky fingerprints everywhere. CSI would have a field day lol!!!

I must also say, there isn't a mucky smudge on the card above the sentiment. It was the way the the light was coming through the window when I snapped the card (probably a mucky window lol!!!) and I've only just noticed it on screen.

Hope you like my contemporary take on Christmas.

British GP today so I shall have custody of the remote. I think I have also twisted Mr D's arm to go to Silverstone again next year but sometimes when he says "Ok" with a glazed look on his face, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's heard or taken much notice of what's been said.
How many of us gals use that to our advantage, hahaha!!!

Tune in tomorrow for another John Next Door inspired creation, same Duck time, same Duck channel.

  1. Another lovely card. Guess you've got a stack of new goodies to play with.

  2. Lovely card. The same stamp but such a different card to the one done this morning by John. Its good to have someone like you with such a different style showcasing the stamps too, as it shows how versatile they can be.

  3. This is lovely, Ang. As Helen has said, it's great to see two different styles using the same equipment. Looking forward to see what else the pair of you have come up with.

    Best wishes

  5. Lovely and love the colours great post.xx [aNNie]

  6. Love the padded look of this card Ang and the colour combo.
    Yes lovely to get such welcome news it's going to be a long wait until January to greet this much wanted little one. They have already had trouble getting scan pictures as it will not keep still. But with a Dad who is a personal trainer and Mum a dancer what can you expect.

  14. Hi Ang
    What a beautiful card and a lovely shade. Going to use my stencils more for embossing now that I've seen yours, I've got lots of stencils I bought for using on gelli plates but mostly use for normal stencilling nowadays. Thank you for the lovely inspiration.

  15. Never tried using stencils as embossing folders. Will pop this in my excellent tips folder.
    Love the colours you used for this super card.

  28. Hi Ang, Just catching up with your posts and I have to say what a fabulous card. I love the way you have used the Mask to emboss the background, it really shows off John's stamp beautifully. Have not yet started my Christmas cards so thank you for the idea.
