Magical Christmas




It's a bit difficult to see in the photo but I have used green mirri card to layer my starry cardstock onto.  The starry card is recycled from packaging and I have added glitter glue.  The sentiment stamp is yet another magazine freebie.

The colours used on this card were a bit of a challenge to me as I don't normally use any of them a great deal.  I think it turned out ok though although I have just noticed I stamped the sentiment in the wrong place on the sketch (artistic license???).  I have coloured my Magnolia fairy with promarkers and added glitter glue to her wings.  I also fussy cut her so she looks as if she is sat on the orange ribbon.

Another Thank You Card...



Here is another little thank you card made with bits lying around on my workspace.

The sentiment stamp is a magazine freebie and the leaves are punched.  I layered the paper flowers and added a gem.

Something A Bit Different






I do like to recycle and upcycle things when I can and on this occasion I have recycled some old fabric poinsettias from a Christmas decoration.

Having separated all the layers of the flowers I coloured them with my promarkers before re-assembling them again.  I added a hairclip to the back of each flower so that I could easily change them on the hat if required.  Two of them have silver coloured filigrees on them whilst the one I needed has a very old large crystal button, nice and sparkly.

I now had a hat that coordinated with the colour theme of the wedding.

Here is a card that can be used for many occasions when it is needed.  The stamped image has been heat embossed in silver to match the mirri card used.  The white panels have been dry embossed with a folder.

A Note Of Thanks




A little thank you card today.  I stamped a sentiment directly onto some design paper before sticking to my base card.  I then stamped and die cut the circles and banner, edging them with ink.  I have raised the banner with foam pads.

Quilted Stocking



Here is a quick card featuring a lovely quilted stocking which I have coloured with promarkers.  The design paper looks like a patchwork quilt and I have added some gold metallic ribbon.  The sentiment is from Hunkydory.

It's that Penny Black snowman again.  I have coloured him with promarkers and added flowersoft and glitter glue. The paper is a freebie as is the sentiment.  A bit of glitter washi tape and another card goes into the pile.

Pine Wreath



Here is a quick card using stamps that were free with magazines.  I stamped in green then coloured the cones with ink.  That needs practice I think.

Birthday Wishes



I came across this little cutie already coloured with promarkers and realised I must have coloured her over 3yrs ago, looking good for her age... 

I then had a good rummage and found some old magazine freebie papers that matched rather well.  The sentiment stamp was also a freebie.  A bit of washi tape and she is ready to be personalized when I know who is getting her.
