These two cards are using the Craftwork cards cardstock and the red papers from the Mulberry Wood and the glittery ribbon is from Papermania. Both images are coloured using my Spectrum Noir pens and the holly and berries embellishment is a die from the Marianne collection.
This is one my favourite of the cards I have made recently and the first time I have made a card without a character as the focal point.
This card is made using Spellbinders dies for the snowflakes and circles, the greeting is from Lili of the Valley and the ribbon bow is from the Papermania Capsule collection and the jewels are also from Papermania.
This is one of my favourite of the Lili of the Valley winter stamps. I coloured the penguin using of course, Spectrum Noirs.
I made this card using the glitter cardstock from the Core'dinations pad and the papers are also free papers that I just love. The papers can also be obtained from the Craftwork Cards range.
The snowflakes are from Spellbinders and swirls are cut from the Riviera corner die from Memory Box. I have also added some sparkle jewels that I changed from a silver colour using my Spectrum Noir pens.
I coloured it using my Spectrum Noir pens with added Stickles glitter glue. The papers are also from a free pack I received which is also one of the Mulberry Wood papers. The glitter cardstock is from a Core'dinations stack and the sparkly silver blue card is from Craftwork cards.
The die cut snowflakes are from Spellbinders and the swirls are from Memory Box called 'Riveria Corner'.
The little stars are the waste from a Martha Stewart border punch and the stamped greeting is also from a free set I recently bought on the front of Cardmaking and Papercraft.
This card is for the following challenges:
'How does your garden grow' (Anything garden, floral etc) - Allsorts
I love this time of year because not only are there some gorgeous products out there but Christmas cards enable you to add sparkle (and as much as you like) yay!!
I have treated myself to some Lili of the Valley stamps and also I saw some Hero Arts robin on Create and Craft the other day which I just had to have. I have also indulged in some more Christmas dies and could have gone on and on with these if the budget had allowed/ Oh well my birthday is coming up in a few weeks. I have to make a short :) list.....
This card is using one of those Hero Arts Robin from the set called 'Christmas Robins'. I coloured it using my Spectrum Noir pens. The papers are from a set of free papers I got from a magazine a couple of years ago which I am try to put to good use. (To make room for more crafty stash, of course!)
The ribbon is from my local craft shop Sew Simple and for anyone in the Norwich area it is well worth a visit and the prices are reasonable. They are also a DoCrafts stockist and regularly hold events with one of my favourite designers.
The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley and I'm not sure where the card blanks came from. I also added some sparkle using Stickles Glitter Glue.
