Planes, Trains & Automobiles

As promised, I'm back with some cards to show you. It's a busy day for me today so this may seem a bit rushed!
The challenge on CCT this week is......
"Planes, trains and automobiles...but of course, we wouldn't restrict you to just those vehicles, absolutely any mode of transport is allowed!....."
I think I may have got a bit carried away with this challenge as I've done three cards! I probably would have done more but time caught up with me. Anyway, when I looked at the finished cards, I realised I've made them in my favourite colours - red and teal/turquoise!! It wasn't intentional....it's just funny how I'm drawn to those colours. I must admit, it was a bit weird making Christmas cards in April.....must have been the snow at the weekend getting me in the mood!!



For this card, I used Pink Petticoat designs printed onto lightweight c.s., with the plain piece embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. The image is Christmas Ride by Penny Black, coloured with Brushables with glamour dust added to Santa's beard, moustache and hat (doesn't show too well). The image was layered onto PP card and mirricard. Sentiment is computer generated, grosgrain ribbon is from Dovecraft, sticky gems are from Papermania and holly 3D sticker is also Papermania.



This card was made with Doodlebug c.s. and K & Co paper. The stamp is Snowboard Fluffles from Stampendous coloured with Sakura Souffle pen and glamour dust added to the spots on his snowboard, snowflakes and the bobble on his hat. Doodlebug rub-on stitches were used along with Doodlebug ric rac ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated and the snowflake brad is from my stash.


This card is a combination of the two colours. Wasn't sure about this one at first, but the more I look at it, the more I like it! Cardstock is Doodlebug/Bazzill with the small panel run through the Cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots embossing folder. Paper, or rather c.s. as it's quite thick, is from Sassafraslass. Image is courtesy of Jilli which I received in a PIF and I have coloured it with Sakura Souffle, Marvy and used some Sakura glaze over the red for a shine. The sentiment "Tres Chic" is from See D's. Flower is from Little Silver Hat and brads are from Michelle at The Card Grotto. (For some reason my links aren't working, sorry girls).

Must rush now as I'm due out in half an hour and nowhere near ready!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
