Some more Christmas for you :)

Good Evening all I hope you are all well. Just when I thought I was getting better my cold has come back with full force am feeling awful today. I thought I would cheer myself up and post a card I have made for Christmas, Christmas is one of my favourite times of year :) 

This is a completely different type of card to the ones I usually make, the first thing you will probably notice is that I have NO COLOURING !! I know I never thought I would enjoy making this sort of card but I really did enjoy it and have made a few more which I will post over the next few weeks. I bought the card and die cuts for this at a stamp show at Alexandra Palace a while back. I am very impressed at the quality of the card and how far it has gone actually and will be buying more once I have been paid. You can find it Here.

A doggy Christmas

Good Evening ladies I hope you are all well. I have been poorly since Thursday last week and am only just now starting to feel a bit better :( I have been coughing so much the last few days my ribs are bruised - on the bright side I won't have to do any stomach exercises for the next few days haha.
I wanted to show you a card tonight that I made for my Christmas stash. It is using one of the Christmas stamps from the Lili of the valley Christmas stamp sheet. 

I have coloured this little guy using my copic markers. The papers are from the Papermania classic Christmas collection. I have mounted three strips in silver miri card and red card. The ribbon is from my local craft store. I added some stickles on to the image to make the snow glittery :) I know snow isn't really glittery but what is a Christmas card without glitter. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges;

Creative inspirations - Anything Christmassy / Winter
Crafty calendar challenge - Winter with the optional extra of snowflakes

I will be back soon to post more cards promise x

A glittery Christmas

Evening all, I have been busy making christmas cards for a craft sale that I am doing this month. I really need to get more made. I particularly like this one. I made it using some glitter embossing powder that I saw being demonstrated at my local garden centres craft section. I plan on using it on a lot more cards as it is effective but also quick. Lets not mention the mess though :) 

I love the glitter you cant see just how glittery it is in this picture I will have to see if I can get a few more made to show you x 

night all xx

An 18th Birthday card and some BRILLIANT news

Hello everyone (if your still there) it's been a while but I have some excellent news I have been asked to join the 2cute design team so excited to start working with these images pop along here to see what the current DT are up to.

I have been making cards behind the scene and promise to be better at uploading them now :) Here is a card I made for a colleagues daughter for her 18th Birthday - he had looked around all of the shops and didn't like any of the ones he had seen. I have used an image from Sweet N Sassy stamps I think this image is perfect for the more grown up / teenager card
The paper is actually from a christmas paper pack but i thought it would go well with this card. I am not sure if you can see it in the picture but it is glittery too which I love. The ribbon was brought from my local craft shop and the sentiment computer generated. 

Below is a close up of the image 

This image has been coloured using copic markers as always. I am still trying to learn how to colour the folds in clothes with these but am gradually getting better. I have inked the edge of the image using distress inks and mounted it on to two tones of blue card. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges
