A Last Few Christmas Cards

I love this stamp by Hannah Davies/Impression Obsession and used it to make our cards to our family this year.

 I stamped the stocking twice onto linen card stock and layered it on 3d foam pads.

 I added lots of bling to this card and coloured a little silver in on some parts using Smooch.

I tried it in different colour combos. Red on black.  And black on red.

And a bit of pink too.

Not long till the big day now!

Our Christmas Cards for this year.

Hi all, I hope you are well. Well the presents are wrapped and the food shopping has arrived so I am ready! I was really late in starting our christmas cards this year. We send a lot and I wanted to make them all so they had to be relatively quick and easy to do.

I printed the sentiment on the computer as well as the greeting on the inside of the card.

I added lots of bling and some glamour dust. The stamp is from Penny Black.

The bow is from Papermania.

They are all sent now! Hope your christmas plans are going well.

Magazine Christmas Trees

I have seen these trees over the web and thought I would have a go at making one. All you need is a magazine and a bone folder.

A tutorial can be found on good old Martha's blog here.

I added some gold spray and finished. A great way to recycle your mags.

Inspired by My Son

I hope all your christmas plans are going well! My youngest son made this wonderful Christmas card for our family at school.

I was so wowed by it that he kindly taught me how to make one so we got out our papers and had a crafty afternoon.

This was soo relaxing to make, just folding paper!

We added some glamour dust to the edges and tried different colours too.

We made ornaments, tags, cards, such fun!

But best of all was my son's creation when I let him loose on the bradlet draw!

Fantastic! Can't top that one, lots of christmas sparkle!

Have a wonderful run up to christmas.

Final Card for the Challenge, Let it Snow!

This is my final card for the Less is More challenge this week. It's a card that I have made for my son to give to a special little girl that he has a soft spot for at school. If you look closely there is a heart in the middle of the snow flake on the little mouse's nose.

The image is a digi download that I got from the Digi Stamp Boutique a few years ago, I can't find it on there now. I glamour dusted the outside of the mouse to add an extra bit of bling.

I have almost finished my christmas cards now, I started a bit late this year!

I hope you are all enjoying the run up to Christmas!

Another Card for the Less is More Challenge

The theme is Let it Snow for the Less is More challenge, I made a few of these Penguin cards for my little boy to give to the girls at school, the boys got a similar one with a penguin with a baby blue hat and scarf.

The image is from Hero Arts Christmas Critters from Two Peas In a Bucket, I have added and a few gems to the snowflakes on the little penguins hat and glamour dust to the hat and scarf.

Have a great week.

Let it Snow!

Hi all, how are your christmas plans coming along? I am just finishing off making my christmas cards and thought that I would take part in the Less is More challenge this week which is Let it Snow! The ladies have come up with such lovely inspiration again, I always look through their blog for ideas!

I have made this card using the Stamping Up Medallion Stamp as a snowflake for a card for one of my sis in laws and her other half.

Here is another slightly different version with a bit of different bling on it.

I have a couple of other cards to add to this challenge but think I need a separate link so will post again.

Have a great week!
