Pudding Mice

It's time for a new challenge at Di's Digi Designs and the theme for the next fortnight is Any Winter Holiday - this is my card.


I chose to use the adorable Holly Pudding image, coloured it with ProMarkers and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the holly berries.  I cut my image out with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square die and used papers from NitWit Collections, the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.


I added some glittered die cut holly, I coloured the berries to match the image and added some more 3D Crystal Lacquer.

Party Pup

It's time for a new challenge at Winter Wonderland and the theme this week is:

Fussy and Fancy
  
I have used an adorable decoupage image and papers from the Crafter's Companion Barkley Everyday CD.


As you can see I have made a Birthday card - it is the start of the few months of the year when you don't have to make a Christmas project to enter our challenge, although you can still make a Christmas project if you wish.


To add a little interest to some plain purple paper I used my Impression Obsession Thin Stripes stamp and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to stamp some stripes.  The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs and I added a button with a twine bow.


We have four fabulous sponsors for this challenge

Happy Birthday Son

Something a little different from me today - it is my eldest son's 19th Birthday and this is the card I made for him.


I have used papers from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town CD and paper pack along with a topper from the same collection.


The striped paper is from an Ooh La La CD and the sentiment tags are LOTV.  Everything has been seriously distressed, something a little unusual for me as I don't like the mess.

White Christmas

Another CAS Christmas card from me today, a White on White one this time.

I have used the 'merry' die from the Papertrey Ink Wonderful Words Holiday Die Collection,  I cut it out four times and adhered them together, the 'Christmas' is a Clearly Besotted stamp and the Poinsettia was cut out with Sue Wilson Dies.


I apologise for the rubbish photo, I find white on white is virtually impossible to photograph and it was very dark and miserable here today.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Try It On Tuesday Challenge - Winter Whites
Card Mania Challenge 62 - Christmas
Dream Valley Challenge 97 - Christmas
Incy Wincy Designs - Christmas Anything Goes

Wishing you .....

This is a very quick card for the Less is More challenge this week. It's one layer week and the theme is Snow.

I have used a Stamps by Chloe stamp called wishing you a Merry Christmas, I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with some Platinum Sparkle embossing powder - it is really lovely and sparkly in real life but the photographs don't really show it.


I embossed an oval around the outside of my stamped image to add a little interest.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 202 - One Layer
Fantasy Stampers Challenge 25 - CAS Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge 2  - CAS Design

Football and Xbox

I have made this card for my youngest son to give his brother for his birthday.  It combines two of his pleasures in life - football and Xbox games.


I have used papers from Echo Park and a stamp from the Simon Says Stamp All Boy collection, the sentiment has been computer generated. I used an EK Success punch on the edge of the panel and wanted to add some enamel dots but Laurence thought they were 'girly' so it has been left very CAS.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Dream it Up December Challenge - Quick and/or Cute (Quick)
Moving along with the Times - December Birthdays
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday
Creative Card Crew Challenge 76 - Birthday with Sentiment

Christmas Presents

The papers are also from LOTV and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.  To embellish I die cut a large star and punched some smaller ones, I then added a coat of gold glitter glue.
