2 Blue Christmas Cards





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.

Seeing Orange



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..........

Watering Can


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.

Penny Black ATC


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!

Will be my first year as a forum member and will be so nice to be able to send a cards to them. These are just 2 I have recently made using papers and peel offs. Stocked up on stamps yesterday so hoping to start sending some out this week.
