Lili of the Valley- James Pile Of Presents

Hello all!

How you all doing, my sweet crafting friends?
Today I have a CAS Christmas card featuring LOTV's James Bear Pile of Presents....

I coloured James with copics on piece of copic paper and adhered it to a card blank. I then simply added a strip of Taylored Expressions paper to the bottom of the card and a die-cut star. Job done!

Your close up!

All Dressed Up- Little Skater!

Hey everyone!

Happy Friday! Today I thought I'd share another All Dressed Up stamp with you for another Christmas card- this one is Little Skater...

I coloured Little Skater with copics and cut out with a circular die. Papers are beautifully soft by Kaisercraft. I added some MFT snowflakes and a retired MFT sentiment stamp that I thought was super appropriate. I added copious amounts of Stickles and some sparkly gems plus some snow using a white gel pen.

How cute is she?! I loved colouring her hair and face- so cool to be able to get stuck into a large image!

Thought I'd enter this into the All Dressed Up Facebook challenge- theme is pink or pearls.

Reverse Confetti- S'More Love!

Hey everyone! Hope you're all good!

Today I thought I'd share another Christmasy CAS card featuring S'More Love by Reverse Confetti....

I recently treated myself to a new stash of Reverse Confetti goodies so watch this space as I'll be sharing some more with you soon. I used one of the penguins from S'More Love and coloured with copics. I then paper pieced the hat using papers from the Reverse Confetti Warm Heart pad. The snowflakes and sentiment are both part of the stamp set. I added Stickles to the snowflakes and cut out all the images using the matching dies. I used an MFT die to cut the sentiment. The other papers are also from the same paper pad.

Stamping Bella New Release- Tiny Townie Annie The Angel!


So excited today to bring you a card I made for the new Stamping Bella Winter/Christmas release!
Em asked me if I wanted to make a card for the release- who am I to say no?!!

She sent me THE most cutest, gorgeous, beautiful angel to colour. It's Tiny Townie Annie The Angel!!!! L-O-V-E her!

OMG! She was so amazing to colour and image that gorgeous dress paper pieced! Drool! I coloured Annie with copics and added some Stickles to her wings and then fussy cut.  I decided to make a shaker card using MFT Stitched Stars dies which proved quite tricky cutting all the little bits of foam tape but worth it I think! Paper I used is MME. The paper I used for the background of the stars is a gorgeous foiled rose gold- it looks beautiful in real life. 

Here's your close up! What a cutie!
Did I tell you I LOVE her?! Check out the rest of the release all week over on the blog. There are 42, yes, 42 new stamps coming!!! Yippeeeee!!!

Lili of the Valley-Milk and Biscuits!

Hey guys!

Hope you're all good. I made this birthday card ages ago for a friend of my little boy who, coincidentally, is also called Zachary!! Thought I'd show it today to break up my run of Christmas cards! I don't know about you but I like to be prepared with my Christmas cards-  I do NOT want to be making them in December so I'll really be trying to finish them off by the end of November if poss.

I coloured Milk And Biscuits digi image with copics with quite a rough, loose feel. The papers are by MME. I stamped out the letters of the name using PTI's Type Strip alphabets. The stars are Nesties, the star banner by MFT. I *think* the sentiment is a SSS one but memory is failing me right now! 

Such a cute image!

Be back next week with some more Christmas cards!! xxx

All Dressed Up- Warm Heart...

Hey everyone! Don't groan but it's another Christmas card from me today!

This one is by All Dressed Up and is called Warm Heart, Warm Hands...

This is such a fab design to colour as all the hard work has been done for you in the illustration! The hat just looks so realistic before you've even coloured it! Anyhoo, I coloured with copics- I made the image quite large so I worked hard with my blending. I kept it as a simple card design by cutting an aperture in some patterned paper and layering the image beneath. I raided my Project Life/scrapbooking stash for the blue tag and then made another tag myself using some paper from the same paper pad as the blue plaid. Tied together with some twine. 

Thought I'd enter this into this month's All Dressed Up Challenge blog.

Just love the hat on this! 

See you soon-may try and post a non-Christmas card!! x

Mama Elephant- Polar Pals!

Hi all!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. Today I have a Mama Elephant Christmas card to share with you featuring Polar Pals....

I've had this set ages- didn't get a chance to use it last year so at long last I've been able to colour it up! I coloured with copics and die cut using the matching dies. I die cut an aperture in a kraft card blank and stamped the SSS circular holiday sentiment around it. The snowy paper is by LOTV, gingham paper by SEI. I also paper pieced the male penguin's scarf with it! I added one of the accompanying sentiments at the top- it went a bit smudgy afterwards, I'm not sure why!

How's your Christmas card total going? I've made about half of mine plus I've coloured up some images to use so not tooooo bad!! x
