And yet more Christmas.....

As promised I am going to bore you with some of my favourite Christmas cards.

This is such a simple card but I love the effect of the gold embossing powder on the mink pearl card. Both the flourish and the greeting are from the Flourish Snowman Inkadinkado set.

Even simpler still......I repeat stamped this tree using a Whispers brush pen (not sure what the colour is meant to be) and used the same pen for the message. I then scribbled over the trees with a Quickie Glue pen and glittered. Such a pretty display.

Last one for tonight. I stamped, coloured and cut a lot of the wee meeces and friends from the Winter Tales collection over several nights. I love this card......clean and crisp.

Happy Birthday Maria

I've not been on for a while due to Christmas crafting. I'll try and upload a few of the cards I have made shortly. I am glad that most of my Christmas crafting is over and I can start crafting for pleasure.

It's my online Pal, Maria's birthday tomorrow and I made this card for her using one of the Lilac Lemon Designs Art Deco ladies and the new Sophistication board from The Glitter Girls. Not sure if I like the peel off effect, but am pleased with the card in general.

More Christmas Cards

I'm really starting to get into this blogging lark, lol.

Anyway, more Christmas cards. Two are coloured with Promarker pens and thanks to my trip to the NEC I got some Nesties at a steal. Unfortunately 3 sets are being put away for Christmas so you will see loads of cards before then using the same Labels set........sorry!

The first card was a free Daisy and Dandelion stamp with a DoCrafts mag a couple of months ago. I used a backing paper from one of the MCS CDs. The greeting is from a Cute Companions stamp set.

This card is an Elzybells stamp and greeting, the backing paper is from a CD but one I had left over from last year so I have no idea which one.

The final card is my first attempt with Distress Ink pads. I used Faded Jeans and blended it round the edge using Cut n Dry. I then stamped around the edge with an Inkadinkado stamp from the Filigree Snowman set using a Versamark ink pad and dusted the image with Perfect Pearls. I overstamped the corners and the the Filigree Snoman in the middle with Faded Jeans. Not sure if I like this. Comments please..............

Well, I'm not going to have anything to upload for a couple of days as I will be at the NEC on Thursday so no crafting to be done then while the little one is asleep. Maybe if I get some done tomorrow afternoon when I get back from work.

So, these are 2 of the ATCs that I made for a Bling swap. I have used one of the stamps from my new release and glittered the feathers with Art Institute ultra fine glitter. I added a few gems for added bling. They are both coloured with my Promarker pens.

Elzybells Christmas

The following 2 cards have been made using Elzybells stamps. I bought, stamped, and coloured them using Promarker pens a couple of months ago but have only just got round to mounting them up. I have a few more stamped and coloured and will be getting them onto cards soon.

This image is matted onto some purple holographic card and I used the same holographic as the base matt on the card itself. The snowflakes are printed from the Winter Tales CD. The finishing greeting is from Elzybells.

This card is stamped with some Cute Companions snowflakes using white Stazon. I dotted some crystal glitter glue in the centres for some added bling. The red card itself has a small silver fleck in it which inspired me to get my Moonshadow Misters from Lindy's Stamp Gang out to add a little something. As I have said before I don't have any Nesties so I used my premade template to create the shaped layers. I am into sqaure cards at the moment and just love this shape. The greeting is also from Elzybells.

Cute Companion Christmas

I have made this card for my youngest son for Christmas. I know Santa has 8 Reindeer but I couldn't fit 8 on, although I had stamped, coloured and cut 8 out! I used the Cute Companions Winter Tales CD for the village and just repeated the scene across the sheet until it was full. I am soooooo proud of this card, just need to figure out where to put the greeting.......................
