A Christmas First


I have made my first Christmas card, well it is August so we are more than half way through the year. It is quite a simple card, but it takes a while to get my christmas ideas going.

The base card is Kraft card which I have embossed with a folder. Then I have added some layers of patterned papers matted with red. A cute Santa topper is the main image. Finished off with a die cut greeting and lots of die cut Holly and Ivy leaves in copper and gold mirror card.

Stampin' Up



I have been a very bad blogger recently and not been on here for a while. Well I'm feeling a bit more with it for now so I'll try and do more.

I have been playing with some new stuff recently and this card has been made with Stampin' Up products. There range with al-sorts of stuff and it is all colour co-ordinating, which can make it a bit easier but it is a very new sort of card making style for me.


I've used By the Sea stamps and inks and papers from the new in colours.

Little White Kitty


This is my inspiration for this months challenge at The Crafting Cafe.
Our sponsor this month is Inky Impressions and this is one of their images.

I think is is easy to guess that the theme this month is
 Black and White


I have to admit that I found the idea for this card on Pinterest, sorry I don't know who the original maker was but I liked it so much I decided to make my version of it. I have kept it very simply layers of black and white patterned papers all cut using Spellbinders dies.


I have also left the image uncoloured, just decoupaged it. Then finally added some ribbon and gems,

Hummingbird


This is my card for this months challenge at the Crafting Cafe. 
Our Sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and this is one of their images.

I have die cut several layers using Spellbinders Grande Nestabilities square frames. Used ribbon and large flower in black and white too.


I then thought I would colour the image using a Wink of Stella glitter pens so that it really stood out from the black and white. I have also decoupaged it to help it stand out too.

I hope you like it and pop back soon to see what else is going on.

Cat in a Hat


This will be my last card for the Graph'It Markers challenge blog. I need to give things a bit of a rest, to much going on and I can't keep up.

This image is called Flower Hat and is from our sponsor SamiStamps.


Our theme is Ribbons and Lace and I have added a fare bit of both, I have even cut up the lace and used it like leaves.


The cat has of cause been coloured with Graph'It Markers. Just some pearls and a nice round sentiment to finish it off.
