The stamps are more magazine freebies.
Stamping is with jet black archival ink heat-embossed using Stampendous holographic embossing powder for some Christmas sparkle. Glossy accents is used to highlight aspects of the design, such as the star and baubles on the tree.
A lovely lady on Docrafts sent me a few of these star charms in a swap and I have put them to good use by attaching to these little bird charms and hanging from a brad via a triangular jump ring. I couldn't resist adding a touch of red to the bird's breast to turn him into a Christmas robin. You'll see some more of these in cards later in the month.
Where I grew up, some little sod would come up to you on the first of the month, pinch your arm and say "a pinch and a punch it's the first of the month". If he wasn't fast he got "a pinch and a kick for being so quick" :-) Happy November. Maddy x
