Thanks a million snowmen!!

Evening, two posts in one day eh??? 



I love this card, it didn't quite turn out how I planned- in fact it started out as a one layer card but I didn't like it which is why I cut it down.The card is based on the sketch from the latest Papersmooches sketch but when I set off making it I went with it being in a portrait orientation and then I decided to turn it from so it was landscape......it's funny how things can turn out isn't it?? The snowmen are from the Freezy Fellas set and the sentiment is from the Blissful Banners set (bot of which are on offer at the moment).



I also added the Doodlebug paper and hoped the panel up on the side. I also popped the sentiment banner up on 3D foam. I think what I like the most is how the colours just pop!!! It's also quite cool how the snowman look pretty 3D!!!


Thanks for stopping by today,

From both of us

Morning, I hope you're okay. Today for my Craft Mojo post I'm sharing a card that my Mum asked me to make for her and my Dad to give to the nurses at the hospital that she's goes to every few weeks for her arthritis treatment. I decided to use the cute Polar Bears from the MFT Cool Day stamp set, which are stamped on the matching die cuts


I coloured the bears to look like a couple (the big one's my Dad and the shorter one in purple is meant to be my Mum). I have them sitting on an iceberg, also from the set which is floating just of the shore of the North Pole. The snowy landscape was cut using the MFT Snow Difts die and covered in lashings of Wink of stella.  I also add some Stickles glitter glue to the snow on the North Pole Sign....

The background for the card was made by stamping the MFT Swiss Dots background stamp in Memento Summer sky ink. And to finish the sentiment is a die cut made using the Papersmoochs Christmas Word dies and surrounded by a few Doodlebug sequins (of course). 

Mum and Dad were both really pleased with the card!

Christmas Birthday Penguin

Evening, so today I have a Christmas/Birthday card..... I wanted to use a Christmas image for a non-Christmas card. The image from LOTV and is all done on one layer. 


I've coloured the little penguin with Crafters Companion pencils.


The sentiment is from Wplus9 and the stars around the edge are from an old Personal Impressions set.

To finish, I've added glitter to the snow and some tiny star sequins around the border.

How are you doing with Christmas cards, I'm quite please with how many I've done already. Perhaps I'll manage to get enough done in time to post them this year.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments, I read them all and try to visit everyone in return!!

Make a Wish

Hi, today I have a little note card made with a Clearly Besotted stamp set...... I've kept it very simple, one colour and a few glitter highlights.




The stamp set is called Dandelion Dreams, with the flower/seed head image stamped on the pearlescent panel I think it looks so pretty. 

Sorry it's a flying visit.....

This calls for a toast!

Morning, happy Craft Mojo Monday! Today's card is completely NOT Christmas thememed- is uses a gorgeous and cute Papersmooches stamp set called "Wake up" along with some bright a beautiful Doodlebug patterned papers. 




I stamped the images on to Neenah Solar white card using my trusted Black Memento ink pad, coloured them with Promarkers and then fussy cut them out. 




The little background patterned panel was cut using the largest square from the MFT Die-namics Pierced Square STAX. 

Hope this bright and cheery little card has brightened up your Monday!

Winter landscape

Good afternoon, I hope you're well, today I have another Christmas card to share with you. 



I used some curve edge die to cut the "snowdrifts" from some Doodlebug 6x6 paper, I also cut the tree landscape using a Clearly Besotted die. I cut the trees again from some green paper and stuck these on top. The sentiment, which is also from Clearly Besotted, was curved slightly to match the shape of the layer it was stamped on. 



Next I layered these up using very think foam and added them to the base card- the background was created using a Memory box die called Silent Snowfall. Finally, I added silver glitter paste to the edge of each layer and quite a few little clear gems.

I really like how peaceful this card turned out.
