This is 2 more cards selected that I have made over the last week or so. If I posted on my blog every card I have made would bore you to tears (LOL). I'm off on my hols this weekend and tomorrow will be my last day of crafting before its all packed up. Mauritius here I come.........Have loads more to add, but think it will have to wait till I get back as have a ton of ironing to do before we go. Hope everyone is in the festive spirit.

Been to the dentist today and had to have 2 large fillings, hence another day of not crafting but I have made a Birthday Card this evening. On a few birthday lists and everyone seems to have been born at the end of the year. This is for a friend on a list, hope she likes it. Made with K&Co Backing Paper, Graphicus stamp that was used on previous card, and again coloured with pencils and sansador. Matted onto Mirra card and a little bow to finish off. 10 days and I'm off to Sunny Mauritius for the christmas period, need to get all my christmas crafting finished and packed up in the next couple of days, got a mammouth task ahead of me if I'm to get done as much as I need to, only time will tell..........

Had to try something different last night. Only so many christmas cards you can make (LOL). Wanted a challenge so went through my templates (most unused I may add) and thought I try the watering can, mainly because it was pretty straightforward to cut out. Edges with peel off, and used a dotty stamp and a Dauber in Petal Pink for background,(although the camera hasn't picked this up very well) then stamped flower from Graphicus and coloured using Sansador (or Gamasol otherwise known). Cut out and mounted onto 3d foam onto the card. Made a bow from some spare ribbon and hey presto! Really pleased with my first attempt and doesn't take much longer than a normal card.

This is an ATC I made for a friend at CSF using the "You Make Me Blush" stamp. I love the little hedgehog and watercoloured him using Marvy Le plumes. I added some red stickles to the berries on the mistletoe and have gone around the edge using a red pigment pad. To finish off, I used the Tattered Angel Mist Spray in Silver over the whole ATC to give a bit of christmas shimmer. I think the mists are fantastic and think I'll have to invest in a few more colours. Thanks for looking!

Stocked up on stamps yesterday so hoping to start sending some out this week.

Been away from my blog for a few days and can see my rating has dwindled. Hoping to get back to my crafting this week as not long to my holiday now and need to get everything sent before I go. Heres another addition I made using the Stack Its, 12x12 scrapbook page and a border punch. I finished with peels offs and a greeting. Hoping to get back into the habit of blogging on a more regular basis.

This is an A5 card that I used with my new Pyramage disc and Joanna Sheens backing papers. I do have quite alot of her papers and dont use them half as much as I should. I think the contrast of colours looks good and like the modern image with old fashioned papers. Made quite a few pyramage cards lately and seem to be buying any disc that has images on.

Sorry, but I love this card. I was trying out my new Garden gate set of stamps from QVC. I just stamped 1 image onto white card with a Tim Holtz Distress ink pad just to see what it looked like. Then decided to cut it out. I can be quite an impulse crafter, when I sit to craft the idea's dont always come but in this instance I wasn't intending on making a card, it sort of just happened.
I used an A5 Grid card and rubbed the distressed ink pad over the card and the image. I cut a fence with my cricut. Stamped some floral detail onto card and onto the gate. Glued the fence to card, used foam pads for the gate. Added some stickles to the flower buds on the gate and added lots of Prima flowers. Distressed a piece of card and stamped "Happy Birthday" and added a bow to finish! The photo is a bit dull and looks so much nicer for real.

This is my first Diamond Pop Up Card. I got the Ultimate board and DVD the other week and decided to give one of the projects a go as all I usually use the board for is folding cardstock. Very easy to make and nice to try something different. I embellished with Crafters companion Floral Disc, used pale lilac vellum for backing and added a lilac bow and large peel offs at the bottom.The flower has been decoupaged.

These are 2 tags I have made for tag swap on one of the forums I belong to. It has to be Christmas themed and Rubber Stamping had to be included. I used a 6 x 3 tag and used 3 sheets of The English Paper Co "Winter Wonderland" papers. on each tag. Stamped "Warm Winter Wishes" and other images from my Indakinkado stamp set. Added some fibres and covered the back of tag with matching papers.

Cut out the No2,tag and flower from my George Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge. Rubbed some gold ink around the No2 and pink ink around edge of card. Added some stickles fpr sparkle and threaded pink ribbon through the tag.
2 Cards I have made for forum friends at christmas. Rip and torn 2 different papers from Mic Paper Pack, added son penguin embellishments from EZ 3D Embellishment pack and finished with some peel offs. Feel free to leave a comment.

This is another card that I have made using paper scraps and a star cut from my Cricut. Decided against traditional colours for this one. Finished off with a banner embellishment and red ribbon between the 2 pieces of paper.

This card is made from another "Tanda" stamp. I stamps the wizard and watercoloured with Tombow Pens. The stars are made from my Cricut and have been painted with Ecoline Inks and spritzed with Angelmist sprays in gold (which has also been used on the whole background. I glued the stars to the card and stamped "Happy Birthday and finished with a peel off.

A very simple card made from a QVC kit. Backing Papers and Stamp both from Anna Griffin. Added some corner peel offs and used matching cardstock that I cut with a shaped blade ON MY Purple Cows Trimmer. Something different for a change, only so many christmas cards you can do. Needed a change of scenery. Hope you like it!

Really late when I made this card this evening but was feeling inspired. Used K&Co backing paper, gold mirri card and DCWV Far East Stack Paper. Stamped Geisha onto cream cardstock and watercoloured with Lyra Aquacolour's. Stamped flowers (P/Impressions) onto Far East backing paper and used foam pads to mount onto card. Hope you like it!

For this card I printed out a background paper onto gloss paper from the artylicious CD. I then stamped tree (P/Impressions) onto a piece of cardstock and used direct to paper to colour with chalk pads, I then matted on to green cardstock and added a green ribbon down the side and stickles to the tree.

I was recently reading through my latest addition of Papercraft Inspirations when come across a card that really stood out. I have interpreted them in my own way. Used Cricut to cut out the Heart Die's. 2 pieces of backing paper from various designers, Holly Leaves from Cricut, Brads,Gingham bow, Primer Flowers,S/Adhesive ribbon and word stamp from See D's set (exepect one which is a sticky word embellishment) to finish off. Love the pink and blue papers and think a heart is something different from the traditional style of card. Loved making these and hope to make many more, some of you may even receive one!!!

These are 2 cards I made using the Penny Black Hedgehog Stamp and the Personal Impressions Christmas Tree Stamp. I stamped the hedgehogs and watercoloured with Tombow marker pens then masked off the hedgehogs and stamped over the christmas tree which was coloured with fluid chalk in pads. Matt and layered and finished with a greeting and stickles. Hope you like them!

The stamps on all three cards where from a SeeD christmas set. I have watercoloured this image with Marvy Le Plume pens and added some stickles.
This card was again the SeeD stamp with added ribbon, peel offs, an embellishment and coloured with sakura pens.
Again, this has just been watercoloured with Marvy Le Plume and added some stickles for sparkle.

As it was Craft Day today, thought I'd spend the day crafting with my daughter. This is one of the cards I made and think it is very different from the traditional christmas card. I used my Cricut to cut the christmas tree and Joanna Sheens papers. I added some extra peels and a word embellishment. The photo doesn't quite do it justice and it was nice to use different papers instead of the tradional christmas ones.

For this Fat Page I fused Fantasy Film and Fiibres together,(Its the first time I had tried using them) and then stamped a Vintage Lady using Stazon. I coloured the edge of a chipboard coaster with the DTP technique and added a square of Bazill cardstock and stamped Dreaming and a Background. I then overlayed the Fantasy Film on top.
This a little book I made using ATC blanks for the pages. I used 2 different sheets of DaisyD papers and some Bazzill cardstock. I used various embellishments, stamps,fibres and peel offs to finish the book and my BIA to put together. Really enjoyed making my "Little Book" and am very pleased with the final result.
