Last minute

Hello, here are some emergency neighbour Christmas cards. Thankfully I purchased the Christmas Sparkle stamp set and matching triangle die from Clearly Besotted which made making these cards really speedy!!!

Not much technique here....... I've included a photo of the mess on my desk and the coffee that is keeping me awake.

Thanks for stopping by (it's nearly the Christmas hold of me..... pheeeeeweeee)

CASology- snow (the tree is made of snowflakes)

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- winter inspiration 
Sweet Stamping Challenge- oh Christmas Tree
Just flying by to share some cards I made for my colleagues at school. These are very simple, I've used the Christmas tree die from Clearly Besotted and decorated it with gold sequins. The sentiment is also from one of the new CB releases. 

I'm sorry the photograph isn't up to much but it was taken in a rush just before I took them into school.

Thanks for stopping by,

Thanks a millions tags

Hello, I hope you're well. I'm back with some little festive tags made with goodies from Craft Mojo.

The tag has been cut using the Papersmooches stitched tag die and stamped with the MFT Swiss Dots Background stamp.

The snowflakes and banner were cut from Doodleug papers, the snowflakes were die cut using MFT Let it Snowflake dies and have Doodlebug sequins embellishing them. The banner message is from the Papersmooches Blissful Banners stamp set.

I'm going to use these tags on gifts for some colleagues at school.

Shopping our stash- favourite technique (die-cutting)

Snowman- Warm Thoughts

Good afternoon, I think think I've just about made all my Christmas cards for this year- although I'll still need to knock up a few tags for presents and make some post-Christmas thank you cards. So today's card is probably one of the last Christmas cards I'll be sharing.

It's a one layer card- I started by putting the stitches along the bottom using a Papersmooches stitches die. Then I added the Snowman from the Papersmooches Frezzy Friends stamp set. 

Next I masked off the snowdrift and the snowman and then added the falling snow to the background by using a large MFT dotty background stamp and silver Brilliance ink. 

Finally, I added colour to the snowman using watercolours and then loads of Wink of Stella to give a frosty look. 

Thanks for stopping by today,

Challenge Inspiration:
I pulled together a few challenges to get inspired to make this card, I've sone with the theme from Less is more (one layer, snow), the photo inspiration from Papersmooches Sparks challenge (the layered pebbles look like the snowman's body piled up) and finally all the silver is from the Cue word at CASology (which is silver).

Hello Birthday Girl

Morning, I'm here today to share a birthday card with you. 

The hello birthday girl sentiment is from the Wplus9 "hand lettered hello" stamp set, and after stamping it I masked it and the added the leaves and flowers around it to make a frame. 

The background paper is from a Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper pad.

Thanks for stopping by, TFI Friday!!!!

Sending you Christmas Sparkle

Evening, it's another late post for me again. There may only be a few weeks left before I break up for Christmas (6 and a half days) but I'm still as busy as ever- if not more so! However, I've managed to squeeze in a little tiny bit of crafting time.

This is a one layer card that teams together lots of different stamp sets- complicated simplicity!

The main "sparkle" word is from a MFT set "you were meant to sparkle". The other words are from two different Clearly Besotted sets "a little sentimental" and "Happy Days". Finally, the little sparkles are from a Lawn Fawn set called "Deck the halls".

To finish this sparkly card I added a few silver gems to some of the sparkles. Ohhh and I forgot to say I used black ink for the little words but everything else is stamped using "Starlite Silver" Brilliance ink.

This card has been made for the latest CASology challenge where the theme is silver, I'm also thinking about applying for their latest DT call (eeeeke, such an amazing opportunity!!!). It also ties in with the "Bling it on" theme over a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Black tie Christmas theme from Paper Players.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Obi Wan I wanna kiss

Evening, popping in to share this Christmas card that I made for my husband. 

I used the fabby Obi Wan digital image from  Whimsie Doodles. Now I'm sure you know I don't usually use digital images but being married to a huge Star Wars fan I just had to use this image as soon as I saw it.

I've coloured the image and layered it up on a stitched die-cut mat. The background is a piece of Lawn Fawn paper covered with die cut snowflakes. I've also added a generous sprinkle of Doodlebug sequins.

Thankfully hubby loves the card so success all round!
