Things With Wings

The challenge on CCT this week is "Things With Wings".....
".....Anything with wings which is cute is fine for the challenge..."
For some reason, don't ask me why, I didn't want to use a Magnolia stamp so went for this little fella from Stampin Up.



It was a very quick and simple card to make. I coloured the owl with Prismas and Sansodor and added some Glamour Dust to his chest. I then layered him onto Bazzill c.s. with my Woodware punches. The background paper is from the chocolate blox from Craftwork Cards as are the chocolate drop embellishments. The dark brown paper (which has a shimmer to it) has been run through the Cuttlebug with the Spots & Dots Embossing Folder and some ribbon from my stash was fixed across the join. Told you it was quick!!


Then decided to do another one!!


This time I used an image from the Little Penguins set from C.C. Designs which has been sat in my box unused since buying them a few months back! Coloured him with Brushables (yeh, I know penguins are black, but wanted something a bit softer!). Mounted him in the same way onto Bazzill c.s. using my Woodware punches and added some faux stitching and Papermania sticky gems. Covered the card in matching Bazzill c.s. and some paper from my stash, ribbon from Dovecraft, more sticky gems and the sentiment from the same stamp set, layered onto c.s. Another quick one!

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.
