Christmas card wishes



Hi there!

Wow.

The month has flown past  and we have made it through  another Christmas once again.
I hope you had an amazing time with family and loved ones.


Today I would like to share with you a Christmas card that I made for an arty friend.



I have used Copic markers to colour the stamped image. 

The die cut background has been foiled using my GoPress and foil. Very simple layers but the gold foil really gives this card some sparkle.


Supplies Used:
Taylered Expressions: Loop-de-Loo cutting plate.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look at my card. 


Until next time

Christmas Already

Hello Fellow Crafters

Christmas is fast approaching.
A friends daughter wanted me to make her a few cards 
that weren't religious so I thought I'd use 
Tim Holtz little Gems.


If you don't already have any of these stamps they are worth
 consideration before next Christmas.

Yu can't see it in these photos but some backgrounds have 
snow flakes embossed with Bridal Tinsel. 
 I have also glittered them up in a few places.





My project in January is to find a better way to photograph my cards.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas.
Remembering that "Jesus is the reason for the season".

Blessings to all,
Crafty Hugs,
Carol x

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

I thought maybe it was time to do a Christmas card 
so I thought I'd do a fun one for a change.
The clear stand is covering up the letter "a" in the sentiment
which came from a set of Christmas stamps in a crafter's magazine a few years ago.




Items Used:

I thought I'd make it look a bit like a room with wall paper.

Window is from First Edition Craft Dies - Windows  (There are four windows)
Christmas Tree from Frantic Stamper - Oregon Fir
Clouds are Memory Box - Fluffy Clouds

My favourite Stamps though are the 
Tim Holtz  Stamps - Mini Bird Crazy and Things.
It has everything you could want to 
place these birds in any situation.
They are so versatile and well worth the outlay.
I also used the Tim Holtz Dies - Mini Crazy Birds and Things
Often I manage to get colour in their eyes and the dies can cut out 
fresh ones so they are nice and white.

Great time to buy them with Bizzy Bec having 25% off store wide.

Don't forget to get a card made and added to our challengers.
You never know - you might win!

Keep enjoying your craft.

Crafty Hugs,

the unfolding


I used the technique "misting with markers"
This was actually a 'tester' which turned out rather nice although
it was not on water colour paper, but have decided I like it as my
design team inspiration hopefully  for you.


Our challenge is on at Bizzy Bec's
I hope this inspires you to join and and have fun
and perhaps be a winner.

Goods used:
Penny Black stamp called 'the unfolding'
