let it snow

Hi everyone!
I have had a lovely weekend and hope you all have too! We met my brother at Twinlakes at Leicester which is a theme park for kids-the weather was amazing and we all had fun!
I managed to finish this card, although I am not happy with it or it's photo. It's so hard to get a good a good picture near the end of the day now. Any tops would be appreciated on photographing cards for blogs!

This is based on the sketch at case this sketch. I thought of ric rac straight away but not sure if I have got this one quite right. I wanted to add a wave of snowflake then more ric rac but my card ran out of room!

The snowflakes die cuts are memory box. I have stamped and embossed the sentiment with regular red WOW embossing powder. I used Debbie Moore irridescent embossing powder which has shown up (almost too) well in this photo.
I die cut a snowflake out of mirri card and added a button in each one. I know this isn't part of the sketch but I felt my card needed somthing else.

Wishing everyone a fab evening-I am having an early night!
Thank you for any comments you make-they are always appreciated.

christmas cats

Happy friday everyone!
Craft club tomorrow which I'm really looking forward to!
This card is based on the colours at festive friday of which there is still 5 days left to play!!
Navy, white and silver.
I bought this tsamp on my holidays-its a creative expressions one I think.
The ribbon is from Lidl and the sentiment is MME.
I have embossed the stamp in white on the navy card and added some faux stitching round the edge.
I've also used some twine.

I have stamped this sentiment inside and embossed again.

christmas skater

Another Christmas card!! I have decided to make lots over the next few weeks and then start making pressies!! It's christmas on a budget this year!! I have even resisted the Create and Craft offer of free postage this week in an attempt to save some pennies!
I've been busy since Cornwall and it's now caught up on me! Really tired now!

This card is made using a Marieanne stamp free in a magazine last year. It's so lovely to colour. I have coloured with my pro markers. The 25th stamp is a magazine freebie as are the papers. The trees are a Sizzix die cut. It's only a small card-aprrox 3 x 3".

christmas fairy

This is a card I had in my brain for a bit and when I saw a challenge for fairies and winged things I thought this is it!
The image is an acetate one-there is a solid image on the inside of the card. It is hard to see the acetate.
I firtsly coloured the background using distress inks and stamped a grey snowflake on it.
Then i stamped and embossed the sentiment.I have added some snowflakes and gems.

thank you for any comments you make.

christmas spots

Hi all!!
I had a big crafty eveing last night after being in Cornwall for a week with no craft stuff!! God I was bored at night!
This is one I made for the festive friday challenge of using navy, white and silver for a christmas card.
I used an Ellison embossing folder to make the background and a memory box die for the silver and navy snowflakes. I stamped with a navy ink and rubbed a silver ink over the embossed area.

I have used a die cut stencil and the silver ink to make a silver area inside and a MME stamp for the To and From.
I have made another card for these colours which I will blog tomorrow!
thank for any comments you make and have a fab evening!
