Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to my blog visitors.

This is a fun A4 card made with a Honey & Hugs Christmas die-cut decoupage kit to finish the Christmas postings.

Off to wrap presents now.
Have a great Christmas!!

Well, last night I finally finished the last of the cards I had promised people for Christmas which spookily was my 400th sale of the year!

After the iris folded booties the other week I had a request for a Robin. I downloaded this craft from craftsuprint, not sure I will be mass-producing them though.

It was the most realistic robin I found but also the most complicated. It involved some double and corner folds and I'm afraid it was rather experimental but it looks like a robin so we'll stick with it.

It is mounted on red and gold card to make it stand out, some peel off embellishments and a greeting and the card is A4.

Just a few family cards to do now before my rest!

Christmas Cards

So busy making cards this week in between working and a spot of attending Christmas - Do's that I haven't had enough time to stop and post!

This is one made using a clear Pepper & Friends Christmas stamp. Simply coloured with polychromos. A touch of fluffy stuff added for snow and some white peel off snowflakes.

The card is a lovely aperture one from Craft Creations.
Slowly catching up - have made 36 wedding invitations as well since I last posted so looking forward to a day or two resting over the festive period I think before I get in to playing with all the bits I have spent the year accumulating again!!

Xmas Tree

Today's offering is a bit different for Christmas.

The stamp is from a Penny Black transparent set called Winter Whites and Greens - quite impressed I managed to buy at least one set that didn't have hedgehogs in!

I stamped the tree in a lovely deep purple and embossed then dotted with Anitas gems, simply layered on some matching card and added a Merry Christmas greeting from the same stamp set.

I might now try this in some other colours - see how it looks in more traditional hues as not everyone likes lilac and purple as much as me!

A nice girly card today for my niece Maisie who was 6 this week.

The princess is a decoupage Paper Nation sheet, layered on white and pink card to match.

The card I covered with a sheet of pink flowery paper from the stash, then added some little punched flowers which I added a name and age to.

Even found a suitably pink and glittery Happy Birthday peel off in the pile to finish off!

Must crack on, soooo behind with everything!
