Christmas Tree

Anyone would think it's less than 3 months until Christmas because I've got another festive make to share today.  It's Annabelle again with a seasonal red and green colour scheme.

Have a Bella Blue Christmas

Today's card features Bella the heffalump (and friend) in a frosty blue themed Christmas card.  The papers and dies are also Wild Rose Studio and I've layered each panel onto silver mirri card (although it looks black in the piccy).

Sweet as Sugar

Today's card is my first as a Sugar Bowl Sweetie and features lots of my favourite things.

I've used one of my favourite images 'A Little Bit of Gossip' from Funky Kits.  To be honest I love all their Fairy Glen images, but I have probably used this one more than most, so that must qualify as a favourite!

I've also used my current favourite papers from Maja Design, and a stitched circle stax die that I have become a little bit addicted to since buying!

This project supports the 'Anything Goes' challenge at The Sugar Bowl as well as our new 'favourite digi' challenge at As You Like It Challenge,  (Although for all you rubber fans, this little fairy was also produced in rubber, but is currently out of stock at Funky Kits)


Here's a little close up of my fairy which shows the sparkle on her wings a wee bit better...

Hanging Gifts

It's another festive Christmas day today with a card featuring Annabelle from Wild Rose Studio.  I've coloured the image to match the papers which are from the First Edition Nordic Christmas kit, and decorated it with a couple of die cuts in snow white card.

Giant Cake (and a smidgeon of pink)

Today's card is under direct instruction from Christine who requested I return to my roots with a pink and girlie card.  Well, as I said to Christine, I don't need asking twice in that department!

  • Pink - tick
  • Girlie papers - tick
  • Flowers - tick
  • Cute - tick
  • Pretty ribbon - tick
  • Bow - tick
  • Pearls - tick

So here's my pink and girlie card!  :0)

Frostbitten toes?

There's just over one more week to get in your entries for Squirrel's Great Penguin Challenge, so I'm here with another reminder to get you in the pingu mood.

I water-coloured Wryn from Tiddly Inks with DI reinkers, and cut her out using my stitched circle stax die, but the die seemed to move as it went through the BigShot, and clipped off Wryn's toe.  As well as giving Wryn some frostbitten tootsies, the slippage also created a bit more white space on the left than I'd originally intended, so I've used the additional space to add a large die cut sentiment in gold mirri card to match the gold on the papers.

Hopefully no one will notice her clipped toenails!

It's a man's world

It's a really quick post today as this is a card I meant to blog yesterday, but ran out of time.

I needed to make a masculine birthday card and I'm hopeless unless it's pink, glittery, and cute.

Preferably including a bear of some sort!!

That means that mens' cards pose something of a problem for me.

So, I opted to follow a simple sketch, and no image.

Nothing cute whatsoever.

Here's the result :

Snow Family

The theme this week at ABC Christmas Challenge is Something Festive (so that's effectively an 'anything goes' for a Xmas challenge!).  

I've made a 2 layer card which is totally flat (great for mailing!!!).  I stamped and coloured my image onto white card, and die cut the top with a Frostyville border before sticking it directly onto a festive red card base.  

The sentiment is a strip of text ribbon which is wrapped around the white layer and tucked under before it was stuck down.

Simples!


This is also my final challenge designing for the ABC Christmas Challenge.  I've been on this fabulous team since July 2012 but I'm in need of a change to rejuvenate my mojo.  I have had a wonderful time with a great bunch of designers.  Thanks for letting me play along for the last couple of years girls.  It's been a blast !

Geekin' It

Today's card is one of my favourites for a long time.  My favourite colours, beautiful Maja Design papers, a simple layout and I was quite pleased with my colouring (I've been practising 'blond' again!)
