Hi Everyone

A christmas card here for you to see.  This one has a reindeer image from Di's Digistamps which I coloured with copics and added glitter to his hat and baubles.

I also added glossy accents to his red nose and glitter glue to the edges of the poinsettia, which are made from a Creative Expressions die.

The lovely christmas paper comes glittered and is from First Edition, apart from the bottom layer which is from my stash. Pearls, ribbon and some bling in the flowers were also added.  I won't be adding a sentiment until I've decided who is going to receive it. I hope you like.

Hi Everyone

I thought I'd have a play with a stamp I bought and never used.  It was one of those "see it, must have it" ones and then you don't use it.  I have a few of those!

This one is Botanical Bunch from WPlus9.  I heat embossed it in white onto watercolour card and then coloured in with watercolour pencils.

It was supposed to be in a stitched rectangle but because I wasn't paying attention it somehow didn't all get cut out properly and when I tried to put it through the machine again it wasn't lined up correctly so it's turned out smaller than originally planned.  I inked around the edges of the watercolour card and then layered up with yellow and placed onto paper from Nitwit Collections called Flowershoppe. The sentiment has been stamped in silver metallic.

Hi Everyone

I'm happy to see I have had a few new followers recently and would like to thank and also welcome them.  I hope you enjoy my makes.

When I saw the new challenge at Winter Wonderland was for "Frosty" I thought these cards might fit the bill.

They are only 4.5 inches square and I have made a few as they are flat for posting.  They are in blue and white:

and a greeny blue and silver:

The square of paper was cut out with a stitched edge die and then I die cut the snowflake in the centre and placed a piece of silver mirri behind the aperture. I die cut the snowflake again in white glitter card, glued it partly in the hole leaving some of the edges sticking up and then added a little piece of bling.  The continuous sentiment strip is stamped in silver metallic ink and the edges glittered in white. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a good weekend.  I visited Stamp Magic at Doncaster yesterday and bought a few things.  I tried to limit myself and not buy lots as I've done that before and still not used some of the things I've bought!

I have another christmas card to share with you.  This one is quite a simple layout and it's Mr. Snowman from LOTV which I have as a digi image.

I coloured him with copics and used First Edition Christmas Wishes paper.  The holly die cuts are some bought from Ebay earlier in the year.  I've added liquid pearls and diamond glitter glue to the snow and around the sentiment, which is also from LOTV.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl - Any Image

Hi Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and did plenty of things you enjoy.  I spent quite a bit of time in the craft room yesterday and managed to finish this card.

Sorry if the picture looks a bit dark.  I had a go with our little camera to try it out.  I think it shows up the details better, but it is dark.

I coloured the LOTV image with copics, which I am enjoying a bit more now.  I suppose the more you practice the easier it gets, but at the moment I do only have a limited number of them to use. The paper is also LOTV, the poinsettia dies are Sue Wilson and the die for the leaf embellishment is Sara Davies, which I glittered along with the fur on the girl's clothing.
It's quite a simple layout, but I didn't seem to have much room for anything else!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - T for two (2 flowers, 2 dp)
Inky Chicks - Animals
Crafty hazelnut CC Extra - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

I am also entering the LOTV Facebook challenge.

Thank you for visiting and I love reading your comments.

Hi Everyone

I know I said in my last post that I might make a birthday card next, but after seeing the new release of Sylvia Zet images, I decided to make a start on family christmas cards, so I purchased this cute snowman and coloured him with copics to match the Woodland Wishes paper from LOTV. This is a 7" square card as a 6" didn't seem quite big enough.

The light was a bit bright when I took the photo so hope you can see it well enough.
I've glittered nearly everything in sight but it doesn't show very well.  The snow, the lacy edge on the bottom, the snowflake border around the top (half a memory box frostyville wreath) and a few drops of glossy accents around the image were glittered. In fact I think I might have to buy more white glitter soon the way I've been getting through it!  I also added glass glitter to the flowers. Stitched square and stitched rectangle dies were also used and there's also a sweet snowflake embellishment on the ribbon bow, but it doesn't show very well.
