I have discovered a problem with making jewellery for gifts….. I want to keep them all! So I have had to make plenty to ensure a couple are spare.
Here are the latest offerings heading for family and teachers..
Oooooh which do I keep for myself?
P.S. There were a couple more but they got snapped up by my Mum….well she is worth it!
Another card featuring the very beautiful poinsettia, albeit not in its entirety but just snippets…..
A very simple card using just one ink pad, but quite effective and pretty.
Hope you like it.
I love Poinsettias; they are always so bright and jolly.
I also love this Poinsettia stamp and it always gets used every Christmas. This year I have stamped and coloured it like this…..
A little ribbon and some Holly die-cuts and the card is finished.
All for now. Much Christmas preparation still to do.
A traditional and simple Christmas Card today….
I adore this Holly sprig stamp and find it extremely versatile. However, here it is in a very simple form simply stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils. I masked the image and used a text stamp for the background.
A little embossed layer and Spellbinder Holly Motif corners and another Christmas card is finished.
See you again soon.
Hello again and here is today’s Christmas card.
I created a topper by stamping mini Christmas images around a Greeting stamp with a larger Holly design in the background.
I then added some Spellbinder Holly Motifs and flourish corner stamping.
I like the combination of lime green with the more traditional Christmas green for a fresher look.
Thanks for visiting, please come back again for another Christmas Card soon!
Here is today’s Christmas Card…
It is a large card made from a medley of mini stamps.
After stamping the greeting I masked off areas which I filled with mini Christmas images. I then masked each image and over stamped with some large images.
Pencil shading really helps the images jump out and a fine hand drawn black outline adds the final finishing touch.
Thanks for visiting, see you again soon!
I can’t believe it is December already, this year is flying by.
Anyway, here is today’s Christmas card, which uses a medley of Christmas stamps.
I started by stamping “NOEL” using a green inkpad; this one is called artichoke and is a particularly lovely shade of green. I then masked the stamping and collage stamped the remainder of the card using a plethora of christmas image stamps.
A simple layer of co-ordinating card and a spellbinders border or two and the card is finished.
I have many Christmas cards to share so please visit again soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
