Having layered my base card with a couple of design papers I then attached my image with foam pads. My image has been coloured with promarkers and I have added an icing bag and chef's hat. I then added the wooden spoons all of which have been stamped, coloured and fussy cut. A stamped sentiment and die cut gingerbread men finish the card.
My cute little snowman from LOTV has been coloured with promarkers and distress ink then layered onto grey cardstock. I turned the sketch and added distress ink to my base card before attaching the image with foam pads. I kept it simple with a peel-off sentiment and snowflake stickers.
Starting with a white base card I matted and layered it with dark green card, some holly design paper and gold mirri card which I embossed. I then added a strip of the green card and added some gold sparkly ribbon. I die cut the sentiment and placed it on a die cut mat adding some gems. Finally some die cut holly leaves and gems finishes the card.
Here we have Santa peeking through the window coloured with promarkers and a bit of glitter glue. The sentiment is stamped with green ink. Following the sketch I layered several papers and adding red washi tape across the middle. I then attached the image with foam pads. With the base card there is 7 layers to this card...
As you can see I turned the sketch upside down for my card. I matted and layered a navy card blank with white card and navy, starry paper. I then added a navy strip topped with silver glitter washi tape for a bit of sparkle. I then added a die cut dove and sentiment.
Recently I bought some Kraft card that was on offer and had a little play with it as I have never stamped on it before. I must admit that I am rather pleased with how it turned out so you might see more in the future.
Having matted and layered my base card I stamped and heat embossed in white. I then added a slightly gold glitter glue to the snowflakes and the holly berries.
Here's Santa checking his list. I have stamped him and added some sparkly glitter glue. I have placed a stamped sentiment onto a strip of ribbon. A few sparkly gems finish the card. Everything is from Stampin Up.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
I love anything to do with ice skating as it was love at first sight when I met the love of my life one Christmas at the local ice rink (now sadly gone).
I have added glitter glue to this pre-coloured digi from the Paper Shelter and attached her to a die cut mat and frame of glitter paper (more like fabric). The sentiment is from Hunkydory and the peel-off snowflakes are from my stash.
