Festive Lamppost

I'm really getting into the swing of Christmas cards at the moment so here is my offering for Stamp with Fun this week which is a lovely sketch by Tina. The stamp I used is a PSX which I have had for ages, coloured with Sakura Gelly Glaze pens and highlighted with a little Stickles. The papers are all K & Co and I added some square gems and a greeting.

Just Magnolia Challenge

Just managed to get this card done in time for this week's challenge at Just Magnolia, which is to use charms. I decided once again on a Christmas card, I used Tilda with a wreath and coloured with Sakura and Whispers pens. The papers are all Anna Griffin apart from the one with the script on which is from my stash, I cut the corners on the Cuttlebug with the Quickutz corner die and layered them together. I added a snowflake, greeting, ribbon and a wreath charm.

Say it With Flowers

At last I managed to get a tag done for Frankie's Challenge at Dragons Dream. I made the background by painting various colours of Cosmic Shimmer, and then stamping flowers from an Elusive Images set with black Versafine. I finished with some Prima flowers layered together with a spacer and pearl in the centre, I used my branch punch to add some greenery and finished with a butterfly charm and ribbon.

Have a Merry Christmas

I started this card yesterday morning before two of my granddaughters came to stay for the weekend and managed to finish it when they left today. I really need to get started on Christmas cards so was quite happy when Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week was "Christmas with a Pet". I used a Penny Black stamp coloured with Whispers and Sakura pens and edged with Brick Red distress ink pad, the papers were Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Collection. I added a Prima holly, ribbon, Father Christmas charm and greeting.

Truly Scrumptious Challenge

As the weather is a little cooler today decided to make a card for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge, which was a sketch by Sharon and to use some neglected stamps and papers. The stamp is by Hero Arts and have not used this for a few years, I stamped in black Versafine and used some distress ink pads round the edge, the papers I think are from Dovecraft, I found them in one of my paper boxes. I cut the photo corner with a new Quickutz photo corner die, the paper flowers are from my stash with pearls added.
