Love At Xmas

Here is another card using the image from   From The Heart Free Stamp Of The Month February have had so much fun colouring in these lovely stamps. This time I used my favourite colour again purple. Coloured with promarkers, Violet & Bluebell on hat, gloves and scarf. Ginger for his nose and on the edge of snowman Cloud Blue.The backing paper is from one of my very first paper packs I ever bought and thats about ten years ago, was not a lover of it but it has come in very handy. Martha Stewart punch for the snowflake and Memory Box Dies for the hearts, (oh just noticed gem has dropped off one of the hearts but I will not see natural daylight till Thursday now, ohh thats going to bug me).

Lets Get Together

Good Afternoon, created this easel card/gift box using From The Heart Free Stamp Of The Month Challange, which is a monthly progressive challenge every time you enter, you get next months free stamp. Had fun colouring with my promarkers used Holly Red for the scarf and Metallic Gold for the hat. Gently went round the edge of the snowman with Cloud Blue, then applied stickles to rest of snowman and his hat, so they stood out. Found how to make these on you tube last year for xmas cards to friends and filled with a few chocolates.Covered the box and drawer, inside and out with backing paper and used a brad for the drawer to open. The sentiment also comes included in the monthly challenge. I love making easel cards, such a simple fold but with a great effect.

Spring Rain

Good afternoon, still super excited about becoming a DT member for Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge. If you pop across and have a look at  Challenge 265 - Anything Goes not only will you see some lovely makes from the rest of the DT, but my ugly mug too. My card was made using Rory Spring Rain from Lacy Sunshine one of our sponsors for the week. I made a stepper card for this image, they are not as easy as they look to make. Coloured my image with promarkers and layered with yellow and green papers to match the image. The sentiment is a stamp free with magazine and the umbrella and saying on the last stepper are stickers. Just sums everything up after some spring rain, we hope for sunshine.

Sitting pretty

An A5 card made using a download from The Paper Shelter Spring Attitude. Coloured with promarkers, just such a sweet image. Matted and layered on plain lilac card stock and using backing papers from a very old paper pad, The Big One, Claire Curds Signature Range, this is a pad I have had for ages but never seems to run out. The backing paper with flowers on is just black and white, so coloured flowers with promarkers to match the card stock. Sentiment is just using computer and flowers using a punch, I also glittered them you can just make it out.

Just the two of us.

Here is another card I used from stash I had hidden from a while ago. I think it is a range from Do Crafts. many years ago that was the only company I knew who supplied craft items. Now it is like an explosion of goodies and I love it. The only new thing on here is the die I recently purchased from Crafters Companion, Floral Flourish. Again this is layered onto the grey card stock to act as a shadow effect. I just love layers they add such dimension for me  i found a little peg that had a ladybird on, as there is little ones on the log you can just make out.

Forgotten Stash

Not the best of pics, but I have been having a tidy out of my craft room and found this image and papers. Its from years ago sure its from Do Crafts Daisy&Dandelion. Loving the papers, layered them onto a lilac card. Not so sure of the dies I used, which I had made an itenerary of the crafts supplies I have. I also love using layers many of my cards, or should I say all of my cards are layered just think it gives them some dimension.
