Vellum and gems for a Christmas angel

This is the fifth card I made last night for the 25th club on BF forum, with the subject of 'angels'.

The card base is a matt gold one - the greetings paper is vellum and once again I've used a favourite Christmas 'Hark the herald angels sing' stamp, partly coloured with copics, with glossy accents on the halo. The pearl gems are Prima.


This is also for these challenges:

Sparkle Creations Christmas week 30: 'favourite Christmas song'
Incy wincy 48: 'things with wings'
Fussy & fancy 13: 'monochromatic and wings'

Simply angels

My fourth card this month for the 25th club on BF forum (subject: angels).

Once more I've used the free downloaded sheet music for Hark the herald angels sing. I stamped the Anita's angel stamp and then stamped again so that the second one was faded. Just a hint of colouring with copics. You can't see it here because the white card covers it, but the base card is a matt gold one.


This is also for these challenges:

Sparkle Creations Christmas week 30: 'favourite Christmas song'
Susie & Vikki's Christmas club 22: 'all white Christmas'
Incy wincy 48: 'things with wings'
Stampin' royalty 26: 'seeing doubles'
Andrea's stampin' moments: 'simply Saturday simply repeated'
Fussy & fancy 13: 'monochromatic and wings'

Simply ribbon and angels

A third card for this month's 25th club on BF forum.

This time I've stamped the Anita's stamp angel twice, using the masking technique, coloured with copics. The background card is a gold embossed foil card. The ribbon is tied in a 'faux' bow - a piece of ribbon at right angles under the main strip, which is then tied to make the knot.

Another angel card

Another Christmas card for the 25th club on BF forum.

Once again I've used the free downloa sheet music of 'Hark the herald angels sing' for the background. The stamp is Anita's, coloured with copics and glossy accents on the halo and parts of the wings - the image has then be mounted on gold mirror card.

Cracking on with Christmas cards

For the 25th club on BF forum, Janice has chosen the subject of 'angels', which is a good opportunity to use one of my favourite Christmas stamps.

Last night I made five cards for this theme - I pledged that I woul make ten cards each month for the Christmas 25th club and so far I've been able to meet that target - and, gosh, half the year has already gone.

I downloaded free sheet music for Hark the herald angels sing, coloured parts of the stamped image (Rubber Stampede 'angel collage') with copics and added glossy accents to the halo. The image was then mounted on gold mirror card.

CBC June ATC swaps

These are the lovely shaker ATCs I've received from the June swap on Crafts by Carolyn:

Thank you to Jackie and Andrea for these amazing ATCs.

WOYWW 56 - late again!

Where did Wednesday go to? In fact, where has the week so far gone to? We've had two hospital visits, a visit to the GP's nurse, a visit to the doctor ... and another trip up to Guy's tomorrow - so I suppose that explains what's happened to some of the time.

So I missed WOYWW yesterday, but here is how my space was left from last night.

I had nothing to show yesterday, but last night I made some Christmas cards, so my workspace did get a bit messed up:

I haven't blogged the cards yet - I had to let a bit of glossy accents dry overnight, but you can get a peep here:


This is how the right hand side looks:


And I thought I'd show that when I swing my chair round this is the view I get out into the garden - and so nice to have a door so that a bit of a breeze can come in (although for a couple of weeks it was kept shut because the hayfever was bad, but now seems more under control with the daily tablet):
