Another Balcombe Belles Great Day

I had another great day with the BB girls today - we do have a giggle! I felt really "in the mood" for crafting today and I just love the Christmas Tree designed by Jane Gill available from Woodware (don't you just lurve the brown one??), the poinsetta from Magenta and the guardian angel that I've been waiting for from Stampendous. I only picked up the guadian angel yesterday from CUL and I need to mull over ideas, but I hope you like what I've put together so far.

I stamped the guardian angel and coloured with gold sparkly paints (£2.99 The Works!) and then the same image on acetate so that they overlap. The burgundy poinsetta card was with the Bazzil polka dot/spotty/swiss dots (whatever its called!) card available from CUL and the layout of the base card from Kim Fee, however, the rest was moi! On the purple card I used my new scallop edge punch from Stampin Up!

Can anyone help? The poinsetta stamp has no manufacturer's name on it or any details at all - it's a beautiful stamp and we wondered where it came from. The stamp belonged originally to one of the BB girls - our lovely Maggie who was tragically taken from us earlier this year - we miss you Mags and we all know you're with us each Balcombe Belles!

I've had a lovely day today, lots of good laughs, lots of creativity and I'm back really enjoying my crafting - hope you enjoy it too. Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment, its great to see that you all enjoy them as much as I enjoy looking at your work.

One last question. I had to use black stazon to stamp the angel on acetate but not entirely happy with the finished result - can anyone suggest anything better? Thank youx

That poinsetta is Stampin' Up! I used this one once at a stamp camp. We stamped it on red card stock twice and then once on green card stock and then offset stacked them and attached them to a fridge magnet.
Your cards are very cute!
Thank you for sharing x

sorry, on a closer look, that isn't the one we used at Stampin' Up. I apologize. Hopefully you catch it before it gets posted.
