Xmas card #3

I'm determined to crack on with my Christmas cards this year, so if I can keep this pace up I'll be doing well :)

This card is based on Tracy's card, this week's featured stamper at Splitcoast.  I used stamps from the same MFT set and used my Simon Says Stamp Christmas snow stencil on my red base.  Images coloured with watercolour pencils and my Santa popped up on dimensionals.  Chalked sky just behind Santa.


Oh, and here's a wee pic of my nephew with the card he made for his wee sister.  The only help I gave him was sticking it down on the card base and showing him how to chalk the sky ... is't his card fab!

Leaving card for Will

This card is for one of our European volunteers in work who's placement time is up.   He's a very tall lad, thus the giraffe!  And if you haven't guessed from the colour theme, he's also Spanish!

Giraffe from Whipper Snapper - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Silver peel off letters and sparkly border strips from stash

Dotty Friend

This is just a wee quick CAS card for a friend of my Mum.
Image from Tiddly Inks - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to the balloons.





Christmas Card #2

Brrrr it's been such a cold day today, so glad of my cosy boots and now my super cosy onesie!
Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to wear them to work ... not the prettiest nor most flattering things in the world though!! ;)

This card uses some stamps from SugarPea Designs - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss and glitter added to his scarf.

Pretty in pink

I came across this wee stamp when I was looking for another, as yet unfound, stamp ... obviously my filing/sorting system still needs a bit of attention!

Image from Lili of the Valley - coloured with watercolour pencils.  Paper Smooches heart die, Taylored Expressions notebook edge die.

DPs are oldies from my stash ... some of the 'too nice to use' pile!  Pink gems also from stash.
