Opening Presents

Hi everyone, goodness has it really been a week since l last blogged, this must be put onto my New Year resolution, " l must blog more often" 
This is, yes, you have guessed, an A5 landscape blue base card, the main matt l made myself by stamping loads of snowflakes and embossed with a silver sparkle embossing powder, and then inked
the edges, the stamped image is one of Sheena Douglass's  and coloured with both Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers. I then cut out with one of my nesties and also a blue matt too, inking the edges once more. Stamped the greeting and attached, added a couple of gems, and hey presto it was complete.
 Hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, and any comments would be welcome...Thank You

Christmas is coming

Good morning everyone, hey l am doing well keeping up with my posting, l have a little more time at the mo as my next booking isn't til 18th December for my stall.
Right, this is an A5 landscape card, and l chose a pale blue pearlescent one as the base, l then chose a toning shade for the matt and embossed the corners with my Cuttlebug master collection. The stamped image is one of Sheena's, A Little Bit Festive, and l used watercolour card and my Whisper pens, it was a nice change, using my nestie l cut leaving the edge of the tree out of the box so to speak.  I hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog, any comments are welcome. Thank You

Good Morning everyone, l am making an early start today, as, like everyone else l am very busy,
Christmas coming and all that.
This card was made for my grandson's girlfriend, Bethan, whose birthday is today, l am sure she won't mind me posting it here.  I started with an A5 white card, landscape, then used one of my embossing folders for the main matt and inked the edges with Milled Lavender distressed ink, then punched a ribbon out of the same card and matted onto black. The stamped image was from one of my magazines, sorry can't recollect which, coloured with my Spectrum Noirs, cut with a nestie, and also cut a matt in black too. Cut three different circles, also matted onto black after following thro the tinting on the edges, finished off using my Cricut to cut her name out.   I was quite pleased with the finished card and hope that you agree.   Many thanks for taking a look at my blog, any comments are welcome.

Carol singers (Sepia)

Hi, hope everyone is o.k. today,
This card is an A5 portrait card, and l used backing paper from one of Thomas Kinkade C.D.'s
l then stamped out the Pilkington Lane carol singers, l know, l used it on my last one but love it as it
is a lovely scene, used a sepia coloured ink pad and just slightly dragged a hint of colour, and used
some crystal glitter to highlight snow.  Using one of my nesties, cut it out and also matt it onto some
gold mirror card, embellished with my mistletoe and greetings dies in gold again.
Many thanks for taking a look at my blog, any comments welcome.
