Winter Wonderland

Well, this is a first for me today…I've always admired the "cluttered" type of cards but never managed to pluck up the courage to have a go, that is, until today.

I've had a Magnolia stamp for a couple of years now which I always thought was cute so decided to put Edwin to the test!



I coloured him with Promarkers and no, he isn't that suntanned in real life!  Used some flowersoft for his hat and then die cut him with a Spellbinders die and inked the edges.  Covered the shaped card (another first for me!) with Magnolia paper and added a couple more bits which had been distressed around the edges.  Then added all the bits - webbing, bobble ribbon, snowflake dies and Christmas tree dies, all covered in glitter and stickles!  Finally, used an old sentiment from Studio G and again added a bit of ink and glitter around the edges.  Must admit, was quite pleased with the result.

I'm entering this card in the CCT challenge "Dies and Punches" and also the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Oh How Cute".

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.







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.
