White with silver sparkle

Having made and shone some notebooks and two or three birthday cards, I'm back to Christmas again now, with another card made with Anna Griffin components, this time mainly white, with some sparkly silver and just a hint of red on the banner on the holly wreath.

This is for:

Paper cutz 68: Christmas using lots of bling
Alota 47: Christmas - let's celebrate
2 sisters 13: Christmas
ABC: H is for holidays
Scrappy frogs: merry Christmas
Flourish timeless 93: just do it - get those Christmas cards done
Creative inspirations 47: anything Christmassy
Pollycraft 70: a glittery Christmas
Die cut dreams Christmas 44: anything goes
Crafts and me 17: glitter
Simon says: sparkle
Meljen 34: sparkle & shine
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 55: tickle me with tinsel - glitter
Treehouse 76: go glitter
Stampin' sisters in Christ 65: clean and simple
Pals paper arts 69: clean & simple
ABC Christmas: X for Xmas
Our daily bread: holiday
Crazy4challenges 64: circles (the holly wreath)
Speedy the cat (Mark's finest papers) 30: have a circle on your card

Simple daises and buttons

This card is for the sketch on Cutie Sunday 118:

Once again I've used Bo Bunny beau jardin clover paper - I thought I would use it up rather than putting this piece in my offcuts box. The stamp is Anita's - a very simple design that only needs touches of copic colouring. The Happy Birthday was printed on my dymo letratag and little pink floral buttons are from stash.

As the patterned paper is once again a prominent part of the card, I'm linking for Stampin' royalty 46.

The colours are again for this week's Dollies challenge: grass green, baby pink and white. - and it's just right for Wee memories 32: put a little pink.

Top tip Tuesday 10
: buttons galore
CCEE 1046: buttons
Simple doodles 31: cute as a button! - let's see those buttons
Paper romance 25: some of your favourite things - patterned paper, stamping, buttons
Lots to do: what's your favourite technique - I think it has to be stamping and colouring with copics
Freshly brewed: show off your style - I'm not sure that I have a 'style' - I like to have a go at most things and use different products and techniques, but I do love using patterned papers and stamping, so I guess that this card is fairly typical of my 'style'

Beau Jardin Clover

This is another card that uses a piece of Bo Bunny beau jardin clover paper - I love this. I used some of the rest of the paper to cut the three layers of flowers with nesti poinsettias and edged these with green copic - making it right for Little paper shop 94: all about the die cuts.

I added pink to the flowers and to some on the background paper. As the patterned paper is the focal point, both for the background and the flower, I'm linking for Stampin' royalty 46.

The colours are for this week's Dollies challenge: grass green, baby pink and white. - and it's just right for Wee memories 32: put a little pink.

The addition of the pink shiny butterflies (apologies that the photo makes them look different pink to the colouring because of the shine with the flash) is good for:

Simon says: sparkle
Meljen 34: sparkle & shine
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 55: tickle me with tinsel - make it shine
Flutter by Wednesday 131: open - including a butterfly
Oh Alice chapter 40: hooka are you? - use a butterfly

Drunken stampers 43: no stamps for you

White lace

For this card I've used the sketch for Corrosive 90:

This card is for Anyone for Anya: vintage white, using my Greeting Farm wild sprouts 'sassy Suzi' stamp, coloured with copics. The fur on her coat has been stickled with crystal ice. The scalloped oval was cut with a nestie. The background paper is Bo Bunny beau jardin clover, lace and pearls from stash. This is also for Farm fresh Friday (Splendid stamping) which also calls for a Greeting Farm stamp to be used, with the theme 'sparkly birthday'.

That's another birthday card done - I've been concentrating so much on Christmas that birthday cards have been neglected and I do need to make more.

Time to reflect with Homer

My BIA has been working overtime - another handmade notebook, this time featuring Homer reflecting on life!

It's another notebook that uses the colours from the photo inspiration on Creative Prompts 42: oil ... oil everywhere and also the stripes:

On a roll with the BIA!

I do love using my BIA to make notebooks - I use thick card for the back (I save all the pieces that are used in packaging when I get card/paper delivered) and for the front, which is then covered with patterned paper - and the inside is also covered.

Once again, I've used colours from the photo inspiration on Creative Prompts 42: oil ... oil everywhere and also the stripes:

Same background paper as last time, with a bit of striped paper at the top:

Another BIA notebook

This is another notebook made using my BIA.

I've used colours from the photo inspiration on Creative Prompts 42: oil ... oil everywhere and also the stripes:

I can't remember what the background paper is - I wish I could remember, because I like it so much I would like to get some more - if anyone recognises it please let me know - it's perfect for notebooks.
