Wintery Scenes

Oh no!!!!  It is almost Christmas and I had such good intentions of regularly posting all the Christmas card designs that I've made.  Where did the time go??????

Anyway below are two cards that I made a few months ago now  - both using the Penny Black cling stamp Dashing Through The Snow, the wooden stamp Winter Berries and the clear stamp set A Bright Tomorrow.

On this card I used Distress inkpads for the background along with Memory Box dies - Swirly Tree, Frosty Border and Puffy Clouds. I'd like to enter this card into the Penny Black & More at Allsorts Challenge blog for the It's Your Choice  challenge.

The main card was made from Grand Labels One. I sponged Metallic Silver paint around the edge of the card to give a 'frosty' feel to it.

The girl and sleigh were coloured using Copic markers and Spicas.

With this card I chose to make the main card using a PATP Martha Stewart Snowfall punch set, combined with the Memory Box Winterland Tree die and a Craftwork Cards sentiment. I'd like to enter this card into the Penny Black & More at Allsorts for the It's Your Choice challenge and also the Allsorts Week 185 Oh Christmas Tree.

Again I used a Metallic Silver acrylic paint around the edges of the card.

And of course coloured the girl using Copic markers along with Spicas.

All products used on these cards came from The Glitter Pot.

Just incase I don't get around to blogging again before the big day HAPPY CHRISTMAS  to everyone and a MASSIVE  big thank you for visiting me this year.

A Sweet Little Christmas

Oh dear!!!  That 'time' thing is still happening and I can hardly believe that it is less than 20 days until Christmas!!  Eeeeeeekkkkkk!!  Still haven't finished my Christmas Cards yet!!

Anyway today I have a few cards to show you that I made when I demoed at The Glitter Pot in October.  These cards all use the Forever Friends Christmas teddies along with Doodlebug Sugar Coated Cardstock and the Memory Box Swirly Tree die.

Here's a closer look at the top left card. The Forever Friends Bear is called Santa.

The bear was coloured using Copics.

Here's the top right card. The Forever Friends Bear is called Christmas Gift.

Coloured with Copics.

Here's the bottom left card with the Forever Friends Cup Of Cocoa bear. The card was made using the Grand Labels One Nesties die.

And of course the bear was coloured with Copics!!

And lastly here's the bottom right card using the Pressies For You Forever Friends bear and that Grand Labels One Nesties die again.

Bet you can't guess what I used to colour him with???? LOL!!!

All materials used on the cards came from The Glitter Pot including the Craftwork Cards sentiments. And all of these bears that I used are still half price!!

Now I know that you won't believe me but I hope to post again very soon!!!
