Another Christmas card and a birthday card

This card uses stamps from the Crafters Companion Adorables stamp plate playing. The main characters were stamped first in black soot distress ink and then masked whilst the trees were stamped using Brushed Corduroy distress ink. The characters have been coloured in with ProMarkers and glitter added to the trees and ground. The backing paper was made using a snowflake brayer, waterfall big n juicy ink and cosmic shimmer mists.

The second card in this posting is a birthday card using forever friends decoupage and backing paper. The cupcake and the number 7 are from the cute comapnions birthday stamp plate and have been coloured with ProMarkers.

Nearly finished the christmas cards now...this card uses a snowman, dog and cute mouse stamp from the same Joanna Sheen stamp plate and backing papers from my stash. The images have been stamped with black soot Distress Ink and coloured with ProMarkers. The dog and mouse were stamped first and then masked before stamping the snowmen.

This card is inspired by the current challenges over at Sunday sketch and stamp, which has a sketch to follow this fortnight, (couldn't believe it but I actually won the previous fortnights challenge) and Creative Inspirations, which is 'Pink Christmas'.

Christmas card - sketch and doodles

I made this card following the sketch for the current challenge at Crafts 4 eternity and you also have to add some doodling so I edged the papers with faux affect stitching using a black pen. The papers are from the Crafter's Companion Adorables cd and the image and boarders are from my Christmas stash.

I'm also entering this card into the challenge at Pollycraft , where the theme is doodling.

Quick and Easy Christmas card

This is the theme for the current challenge at Polka doodle .
This card uses the tree stamp for the Crafter's Companion Adorables stamp plate - Playing. I stamped the image twice using distress ink - Pine Needles and blended the colour out a little with a damp brush. I then added some glitter to the trees and layered the image onto some green card and then onto silver mirror board. A sentiment strip was also mounted onto silver mirri and added to the bottom of this A6 card.

A different Christmas card

Been having a play with the new embossing powders from Sheena Douglass. I've used a stag and branch stamp from a Creative Expressions stamp plate.
The stag has been stamped with versamark onto black cardstock and embossed using the holographic powder, this gives a purple effect on black card. I then stamped the branch several times with Versamark and embossed with the fine white powder. The image has then been mattered onto white card and then blue mirror board. To finish the card I added a blue mirror board strip, punched snowflakes and greeting emboseed agani using the fine white powder.

Challenges entered:
One stop craft challenge - embossing
The Stampman  - Christmas


The current challenge at both I love promarkers and Crafty calendar challenge is 'Snowflakes' and I made this card with that theme in mind. This card uses snowflake backing paper from Crafters Companion Adorables CD and the main image uses a snowman stamp from Joanna Sheen. The image was stamped onto Neenah card and coloured with ProMarkers, then mattered onto green and purple cardstock. Striped green paper was cut into triangles for the corners and I used a snowflake punch to create the snowflakes in the corners.

I'm also entering this card into the challenge at Pollycraft , which the theme is 'It's chill time'.

Lothian Crafts Monthly Challenge

As it's the first of the month there's a new monthly challenge over at Lothian Crafts - this is my DT card. There's a sketch to follow for the theme and great candy to be won.

For my card I used one of Joanna Sheen's frame stamps, which I've embossed with Sheena Douglass 'wow' embossing powders in black. The flower is also a JS stamp coloured with ProMarkers. I've used a DCWV paper for the background and the flowers have been cut out of some pattern paper I had in my stash and Stickles added t the centre.
