A fishy card!

Yippeee I've finally managed to totally use up a paper stack, these are the very last remnants!  I'd already decided to use this sweet stamp from Eat Cake Graphics, so how pleased was I when I flipped one of the snippets over and there was some little fishies!  :)

This image couldn't be any easier to colour ... I used my watercolour pencils and then added some Wink of Stella to the little fish.

Stamp used:
2049-G Kitty on Rocks

This card is also posted over at A Sprinkling of Samples and Techniques blog, where you'll find lots more loveliness from Eat Cake Graphics

Up, up and away

I need a few male birthday cards for my stash, so I've used this oldie but the maker's name escapes me just at the minute.
Coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  Wink of Stella added to the green band.  I had a little snippet of this green card on my desk so used my Martha Stewart grass punch.  Lawn Fawn cloud die.

Snowy Snowman

Yip, it's my snowman of the season from Eat Cake Graphics ..
1193-J Snowman (assembled)
8234-F All is calm  (text)

I'm slowly getting there with my Christmas cards, and managed to get most of my shopping done on Black Friday (don't think our shops were as crazy as they be in the US).  Maybe this will be the first year ever I'm organised and no pre-Christmas panic!!!!!!

Image coloured with watercolour pencils.  Wink of Stella added to his scarf and the big snowflake.  Clear gloss added to the band on his hat and buttons.  White enamel dots added to the snowflakes on my DP.

Card for Will

I've been making cards for Will for quite a few years now, I reckon he must be maybe 7 or 8 by now - my friend who runs a doggy charity requests one for him every year, so it's always a challenge to remember which doggy stamps I've used before LOL!

This one is from Eat Cake Graphics ...
3003-G Rowley jumps yippee

Coloured with watercolour pencils and red stickles added to his collar.  I also chalked in some clouds but it doesn't really show up well in the pic.
I came across this old paw print punch in my stash, so added the red circular accents so that I could use it ;)
Sentiment / alpha set from Paper Smooches.

Purple sympathy card

I've dipped into my unloved stash of DP for this card ... so it was never going to end well ;)
I think it looks a wee bit drab, though it looks a bit better in real life as I added some Wink of Stella on the flowers and some clear gems for a bit of sparkle.
I've used my sympathy-go-to-stamp from Whipper Snapper - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to the flower centres.

Peekaboo Bunny

Just a wee quick card from me tonight, using one of the new Stamping Bella images Peekaboo Bunny that I won in their recent hop :)
I've coloured it with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  Wink of Stella added to the ribbon and dots of Stickles to the box, so it's lovely and sparkly.  Couple of sequins to finish.  Super old much unloved DP from stash.

Golf Captain's card

This is another special request card for a new Lady Captain of a local golf club.
I hadn't quite intended for it to be so bright, but I found some DP from a nearly-used-up stack and wanted rid of it ... so I don't feel so guilty buying more in the January sales Heeee  ;)

My image is from High Hopes - coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals. Clear gloss added to her golf club and buttons.
