Party Paws

Are you impressed with me being back again SO soon - lol!!  Thought I would pop on and post another card before my laptop dies on me!! So without further ado here it is.......
This was created using one of the Party Paws rubber stamps along with some papers printed out from the Party Paws Christmas CD Rom and coloured with both Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.  The trees are a Die'sire die. All from Crafter's Companion.
Here's a different view of it so that you can see that it slots behind the small fir tree to create the 3D front. Once again I liberally sprinkled Shabby White embossing enamel (Stampendous) and used Stormy Sky distress ink to add some shadowing to the trees.
And here's the other 'side view' of the card.

Cute Christmas!!

Hi peeps!!  Well I've got to be very quick with my post as my laptop is very poorly and only lasts about 10 minutes before it shuts down for the day!!

So here goes with my card for today.

As some of you know I joined Crafter's Companion DT earlier this year and have now got into CD crafting which was totally new to me!!  I always thought that it wasn't that 'creative' but it is quite surprising just what you can do once you start adding lots of different elements from the CD Roms.

This card was created using quite a few different elements from the Christmas Moonbeam Meadows CD Rom along with the Fir Trees Die'sire die - both from Crafter's Companion.  I added some Shabby White embossing enamel to the imagery and some Stormy Sky Distress ink.

Whereas the card below (also from the Moonbeam Meadows CD) is just simply one of the images stuck to a card blank with some Stickles added to it and a couple of gems.
I honestly loved working with this CD Rom as all the images were just fab!!

I hope to be back again very soon with some more cards to show you if my laptop will allow!!  Meanwhile I have a new one on order as I can't live without one!!

A Frosty Morning

So today my computer has got to go to the 'doctors' as it's not very well!!!!  So just incase it doesn't come back I thought I'd quickly post up a card that I created last year using the fabulous Lavinia Stamps.  Just LOVE this range of stamps and I ended up doing a 'happy dance' when The Craft Barn began stocking them!!

Anyway without further ado here is the extra long card that I created which is A4 folded in half lengthways.

The background was created just by tearing bits of paper and sponged with Distress inkpads.

 As you can see when the card catches the light it really shimmers - this was down to using an Encore Silver metallic inkpad and Stardust embossing powder.

As you can see I chose to stamp the 'outer' trees with the silver inkpad too in order to make them shimmer and give the impression of 'frost'.

Here's a closer look at the middle of the card where you can see I added a touch of shadowing under the horses which was just done with a water brush.

The finishing touch was sprinkling just a little of Stampendous' Shabby White embossing enamel over the whole thing.

Hope you like it!!
