Winter bear tag


This is a tag using Christmas scraps and featuring the winter bear digital image from Dilly Beans for their 'make a tag' challenge. I edged the tag with fired brick distress ink and added the piece of tartan ribbon. This is quite a large tag - about 5.5 inches tall. I might try and incorporate it on to a card eventually.

Birthday wishes


This is for the colours given for Color my heart 53:


The main embossed paper was created with a new Embossalicious folder run through the eBosser. I swiped this with some versamagic pink grapefruit ink. The fishtail piece of embossing was done with a little folder that was free with a magazine. I stamped directly on to the Dovecraft doily inking the Magenta stamp with stazon vibrant voilet. I then added the Craftime sentiment and the prima flower spacer.

Summer picnic ...


... complete with ants! Wasn't sure about including them at first, but they were with the miscellaneous stickers I was using, so thought I might as well add them and it was only afterwards the I realised that I'd stuck them right close to where there's an ant on the DCWV paper!

Other stickers from various sources.

Christmas silver extravaganza


This is my third card as one of the design team for Christmas cards all year round August: Christmas extravaganza - make it fussy and fancy.

This is another 8 x 8 card. The silver mirror card punched circle was cut with my mini 8 snowflakes punch and the smaller one was also cut with that using a piece of Hunkydory foiled card.

The image is Kanban spring silhouettes (but I think it can double up as snowflakes with a bit of imagination - lol!) inked with versamark and heat emhossed with detail silver powder, with the addition of some sparkly flower gems from Hobbycraft., cut out with a nestie die. Punched snowflakes were added at the corners with little pearls.

More Christmas extravaganza


This is my second card for Christmas cards all year round August: Christmas extravanganza - make it fussy and fancy. Please come and join us if you can.

This is a large 8 x 8 card with a piece of Hunkydory foiled card in the background, topped with a piece of Kaisercraft turtle dove script paper. I overlaid this with a piece of snowy acetate. The embossed strip is an offcut from using an eBosser folder. The image is a glittered one that was part of a set that I bought long ago (have loads of them left). Flowers are prima and the strips of pearls from stash.

Christmas extravaganza


It's time for the August challenge on Christmas cards all year round and today the theme is: Christmas Extravaganza - make it fussy and fancy, so this is my first card as one of the Design Team. Please go over to CCAYR and see all the fussy and fancy cards made by other members of the team and, hopefully, join in the Christmas extravaganza.

Papers are Teresa Collins 'Christmas home. The black glittered strips, little glittered reindeer and ribbon have been in my Christmas stash for some time. The foiled and glittered panel and the leaves were rescued from one of our Christmas crackers last year.

CHNC challenge extra for August


Can you believe that it's now August? Where has the year gone to so far? The months really do pass more quickly as you get older.

This means it's time to start CHNC challenge extra for August and for my first Christmas card of the month I've used three images kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, the sponsor: wise man 1, 2 and 3 and combined them into one image. Please click on the link for the challenge and join in with any Christmas cards you make.

The background paper is a freebie with a magazine from some time in the distant past. The mirror card pieces were all from my offcuts box including the one embossed with the folder that came with my eBosser. Ribbon was from Lakeland (in their after-Christmas sale).

I coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.

I followed the sketch for 2 sisters 154:
