Nativity 2

I'm trying to do as many cards as possible by Monday so that I can have a few sewing days next week.  This is another card that needs a sentiment panel which will be added once I decide who I'm sending it to

I've made this card using a digi kit from Cuddly Buddly which includes the decoupage, background paper and a printed insert using the pattern as on the background paper.  I'm really impressed with the quality of this design.  All I had to add was 3D foam pads and a bit of dsst on the inside for the insert

Party Paws

The space at the bottom of the card will be filled with a sentiment panel when I've decided which family member I'll be sending it to.  I always leave this to the last minute just in case I need to send it elsewhere and I don't have enough time to make one before it's needed.  I'm entering it into the following challenges

I used the sampler cd that was in the Crafter's Inspiration #5 Christmas kit for this card.  Considering buying the full Party Paws cd as everything is so nice and prints really well.  I printed the panda a few times and decoupaged it with 3D foam pads.  It doesn't matter about this one having lots of layers as I shall not be posting it out


With Best Wishes

I've wanted a large sentiment stamp like this one for ages and finally bought this at Port Sunlight at the beginning of the month.  I'm entering this card into the challenges at

I have made this as a one layer card as I didn't think it would work having the birds and flowers on panels across the card.  The stamps are from a set from Crafter's Companion, Clearly Hand Stamped.  I coloured them with my ProMarkers and fine nibs.  I find that using the fine tips the ink hardly, if at all, bleeds through the card.  The best wishes stamp is by Woodware

Baubles and Bows

This is the first card of my huge Christmas order, well maybe not that huge there only being five of them!!  I used to make tons of cards for various people and events but year by year it's got less and less.  Hubby used to get a lot of orders for me from his workplace but he was made redundant when the firm closed down and I was selling less each time I did a craft/Christmas fair as more and more people started making and selling them.

Anyway here is my card, I'm entering it into the challenges at

I made a card last week which was a 6x6 card using a Crafter's Companion embossing folder and gold vellum.  I really liked the effect and decided to use it again but this time as an A5 card.  I used a second piece of vellum to emboss the dotty panel again so I would have the design at the top and bottom of the card.  For stability I adhered it to a piece of white card, this also made the gold brighter. I wrapped black ribbon around to conceal the gap in the pattern and used gold peel-offs to decorate it.  The baubles, Spellbinder's stamps, were stamped onto gold card and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The name, May, was stamped in the same manner using alphabet stamps from the Clearly Hand Stamped collection from Crafter's Companion.  The brads are quite big and totally the wrong colour being plum but my trusty ProMarkers came to the rescue and I re-coloured them with black marker. I had put a mat of black card directly on to the the base card and then mounted the panel using 3D foam pads.  I also used them to fix the baubles in place and then finished off with black bows on the top of the baubles

The image and papers are from a magazine Forever Friends freebie of last year.  The image is decoupaged but I haven't used 3D foam pads as it would be in the large letter price band for postage. Instead I used Letratac which is a dry adhesive and, unfortunately, it is no longer in production. I did use the 3D foam pads for the sentiment panel as it was just one layer.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Crafter's Companion Christmas kit.  All the edges or the paper and card were inked with a Memento ink pad

This is the third card that I've made using this stamp from Woodware and every one has a different look.  So pleased that I bought it :o).  It was stamped with Versafine ink and coloured with ProMarkers.  The background was made up from scraps of paper which I had stuck onto a piece of white paper.  A great way to use up those pieces which are not really big enough to keep but you don't want to throw away.  If you add the scraps as you get them you quickly get a sheet of designer paper no-one else will have.  I inked the edges of the focal image and mounted it on 3D foam pads at a jaunty angle.

Nativity

Earlier in the week As You Like It posed the question as to your favourite style of card and why.  For me it's a very difficult choice as they're the styles I usually opt for, depending on the occasion and recipient.  I have already entered an elegant card so this time it's a cute one.  You can't get much cuter than children doing the Nativity.  I'm also entering it into the challenges at

The stamped image that I have used was given to me by a friend in a stamp swap, I think it's a Little Claire stamp but I'm not 100% sure.  It was stamped with Memento ink and coloured using ProMarkers and a white gel pen. I triple mounted it onto card in the rose and sage green colours and then onto a contemporary Papermania sheet in pink and grey.  I finished the design with a peeloff from Craft Creations

I embossed the gold vellum with an embossing folder by Crafter's Companion, Christmas Elegance.  I like this folder as it has both designs with a plain band across, perfect for placing ribbon. I matted it onto white card, for stability, with black brads from my stash.  I had previously trimmed the panel down to be smaller than the base card.  Black ribbon was wrapped around and secured with strong dsst.  I stamped a bauble by Spellbinder's with Versafine ink and cut it out leaving a small border and attached it to the panel with a brad.  The panel was then mounted onto the base card with 3D foam pads.  I finished it off by adding a gold ribbon bow.

Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge  to use circles


To create the circles needed for the Outlawz challenge I used my Cuttlebug and Cuttlebug embossing folder on the two layers behind the image and the sentiment.  I also rounded all the corners of card and paper paper used using my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.  The background paper is from Papermania and the sentiment was a freebie with a magazine stamped with Memento ink.  The ink was also used on the edges of card and paper.  The main image is a digi stamp from Squigglefly coloured with ProMarkers.  The image and sentiments were added to the card with 3D foam pads


Candles 2

The challenge at As You Like It this time is what is your favourite style, cute or elegant, and to say why.  This is a very difficult choice for me as I love both styles equally.  It just depends on the reason for the card and who the recipient is.  So this time I have chosen elegant as my favourite style.  I am also entering it into the challenges at

I used my Grand Calibur and Memory Box candle die and the largest Spellbinder's Floral Ovals die to create this card.  I removed the centre of the ovals die cut to create a frame for the candles.  The tips of the candle foliage just overlap the edge of the frame which adds to the dimension.  The frame and the candles were adhered to the card with pva.  I added gems, using Glossy Accents, to the corners to finish the design

There are some cards which have to be landscape in style.  I always have difficulty keeping them from sagging down in the middle to become flat cards!  To get over this I cut my card in two and then rejoin them along the short edge.  On the front panel, before putting the card together, I score a line about 1" from the left hand edge and punched holes in the small panel. For this card I used my Crop-a-Dile and then set eyelets into the holes.  I then tied paper raffia, from The Paper Cellar, through the eyelets and trimmed them to fit the panel.  Using strong dsst I joined the front and back panels together.  I used my Grand Calibur with the candle die from Memory Box and the largest of the Spellbinder's Decorative Labels 8.  To give a more pronounced dimension to the card I cut the centre from the Spellbinder's die cut to create a frame for the candles. The candles and frame were adhered to the card using pva. To round the corners of the white and green backing card (the green is a holly embossed card from Papermania) I used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.  The green card is flat onto the base card and the white is mounted using 3D foam pads

I'm so happy! Edited *

I was looking through all my digi images to find something that wasn't flowery, girly or something that I'd used before and came across this cute image. *It was only when I was scrolling down the challenge post at 613 Avenue Create that I saw that the sponsor was the Doodle Pantry and the green, yes green, bird was in their logo! It must have been in my subconscious lol*

The stamp I've used is from Molly Bloom's Christmas Carnival and I coloured it with ProMarkers.  The papers are from various designers, the green Hohoho paper is from Nitwits, the green spotty paper is from Forever Friends.  The red one is from my old and ancient stash.  I cut George out and placed him on the card so it looked as though he was sitting on a windowsill using foam pads.  I stamped the sweets and, again, used my ProMarkers.  I covered them with a Versamark pad and used UTEE to make them really glossy as though they were wrapped in cellophane, cut them out and added them to the card on foam pads.  I added Glamour Dust to the white area and the spots on the paper after using a Quickie Glue Pen.  To finish it off I used a peel-off sentiment


The Snowman

This is my second offering from the Crafter's Inspiration Christmas edition kit from Crafter's Companion.  I'm entering it into the following challenges

Christmas isn't Christmas without the Snowman, and now with the Snowdog.  This is one of the other collections in the kit and, as with the Bebunni card, I used the pre-printed sheets and will use the cd-rom if I want to do it again.  I layered the image onto white card before attaching it to the card using foam pads.  I put a border of Merry Christmas peel-offs around the background paper to be the sentiment element of the card.  I added lots of Glamour dust after using my Quickie Glue Pen to give give plenty of sparkle to the night sky and the Snowman




Just for you

I don't usually buy kits as I think they can be repetitive in the design.  I thought I'd give the new Crafter's Companion Christmas kit as there seemed to be a variety of designs and quite a few free gifts.  I'm glad to say that I made a right choice.  This is the first card of what I imagine will be quite a few.  I'm entering it into the following challenges

Papertake Weekly  things with wings

Christmas Card Challenges  colour challenge


I've made this card from the pre-printed papers that were in the pack but they are also on the cd-rom meaning I can print them off whenever I want them.  I chose the Bebunni background and three circles of the same design which have the same picture but are different sizes.  this gives a different effect to pyramage where the size of the design is the same and the layers are cut smaller.  I layered up the topper using 3D foam pads and attached the tag sentiment with a star brad

Freebie embossing folders

As the title says the main elements of the card are two embossing folders that were free with magazines. At least I'll use these more than once, not like all the free paper pads and small stamps that were just about the only freebies they used to give away.  I'm sharing this card with the following challenges

Once again I've used the Zendoodle angel stamp by Lindsay Mason.  I've coloured it with Promarkers, all pastel shades.  I've used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper on opposite corners of all the paper and card layers, including the base card.  I've mounted the image and the pastel rainbow paper onto pink card before attaching them to the card using my Perfect  Layers rulers to make sure the pink border was uniform.  The sentiment is one of my new stamps from Woodware and I inked it up with a Memento ink pad.  Once the card was altogether I used a Quickie Glue Pen to make dots on the white background, the angels wings and her dress, the star and the sentiment .  When it had reached the tacky stage I used Glamour Dust to add some sparkle.  A pity it doesn't show up to well on here as it is quite sparkly

I over stamped the background paper with a dragonfly stamp from Laxmi Designs using Memento ink pad. I then stamped the square faux post outline using the post cube from Just For Fun Stamps onto some scrap white card.  After that I used the template stencil over the stamps.  I used a couple of green Memento inks to create the background on the stamps.  With the stencil still in place I stamped the dragonfly in a darker green on two of them and on the third I used a sentiment stamp from Sweet Stamps.  I used my deckle edge scissors to cut the stamps out and then mounted them on the card with 3D foam pads.  To finish the card I used Stickles glitter glue on the wings of the dragonflies and the whole of the sentiment.  I did this by applying it with a paint brush

This is another card using this lovely Woodware stamp.  This time I decided to colour it with just 3 ProMarkers.  The first things I coloured were the holly leaves, this was so they would be really dry by the time I came to colour one half again and it would sit on top of the first layer.  The background papers are from HOTP and I covered the join with a border peeloff.  I adhered the Christmas panel to the card using 3D foam pads.  A completely different look to the card compared to the multi coloured version but just as nice

I think I will have to have some practice with this stamp to get it anywhere near how nice it was seeing the card made by the designer, Lindsay Mason.  I stamped the angel onto pearlescent paper and coloured it using ProMarkers in shades of purple and pink.  I then stamped the image onto plain white card and cut the pearlescent angel out and adhered it to the other image.  I used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners of all the papers and card.  The image was mounted onto a purple paper from Papermania, using 3D foam, and then onto the background paper from a Popcorn sampler cd.  I used the sentiment that I had trimmed from the purple paper across the bottom of the card

I've fallen in love with this Woodware stamp, it gives such a clear, chunky impression making it ideal for A5 cards.  As usual I inked it up with Memento ink. I decided to give it a lively look and used lots of bright ProMarkers and I'm really pleased with the way it looks.  I inked the edges and mounted it onto red card before mounting it onto the Crafter's Companion paper on the card

This is the first card I've made using my new Spellbinder's curved border dies.  I'm very impressed with them :o)  I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies plain and scalloped ovals.  To tie the scalloped oval to the white border I used a pokey tool to create holes to match I love white on kraft card so it wasn't difficult for me not to use any patterned papers.  The stamped image is from Circa Design inked up with Versamark and embossed using Stampendous embossing powder as was the sentiment. I cut the flower out and mounted it onto the ovals with 3D foam. The sentiment stamp is from Sweet Stamps.

I mounted the image onto the same cardstock and then onto gold to give it more definition.  I used gold happy birthday peeloffs on the cardstock and borders along the sides.  I used the computer to print the outline of 60 onto the Crafty Individuals paper.  I cut them out and mounted them onto burgundy cardstock before placing them on the gold cardstock, slightly overlapping the numbers.  I then cut them out and mounted them on 3D foam on the card.  I finished the card by stamping Happy Birthday with Adirondack ink pad and my favourite no name sentiment stamp

The paper that I used is a Crafter's Companion one from a sampler disc.  I arranged the folded papers on a pearlescent card which is embossed with Merry Christmas.  I then layered it onto the silver version of the same card.  What I should have done is adhered the pearlescent on the silver so that the wording matched up.  At least I know for next time I use these cards.The layers were then added to a plain white base card.  To finish the I added a peeloff silver star to the tip of the tree and put glitter glue on the edges of the tree
