Christmas cards

Two Christmas cards that I have made this afternoon First the image is from the cute christmas companions Cd, I then stamped the penny black hedgehogs and coloured using marvy pens, Love these stamped images
The second card comes from a download by Cuddly Buddly, The snow people are so cute, you will be seeing lots more from this set, I love all the pastel colours and backing papers.


A few of my favorite things...
A card that really shows off YOUR Favorite color...YOUR favorite stamps...YOUR favorite embellishments...YOUR favorite technique...YOUR favorite everything and anything.
That was the brief we had to make this card.
What to do and what to use, There are so many things that I just love to use in my crafting, i don't think there is a card big enough to show them all.
This is my finished card, If you look below I will give you all the details to this card
First I picked some pearlescent card, and the colour of this was an easy one lilac, I love all the different shades of purples.
I then got out my keepsake boards, I have a few of these and went for the romance board for this card, I love how easy it is to get great deep embossing, also how easy it is to mix patterns from the various boards, I embossed two wavy edges, also the centre oval I then finished off with peel offs.
Next papers for these I went for my crafters companion CD, so many to choose from, but this design is from one of my first ever CC CD the florals collection, I love it and seem to come back to time and time again.
I then used a Fiskas boarder Punch to do the side of the paper strip before adding to my card, I also embossed an oval for the centre.
One of my favourite stamp set is this butterfly, I inked it up and ironed some nice bright fantasy fibers onto the stamps, trimmed and stuck both layers together with silicone glue, before placing in the oval.
I also love these prima flowers so joined two together with a flower brad, and added to the bottom corner.
The sentiment came from pink petticoats, I love all of their papers and stamp images, so I had to find someway of adding them to my card.
I made a little topper using the sentiment and some left over paper.
So there you are I have managed to use quite a few of my favourite things, I hope you like the end result.
SBS24, I am so looking forward to next weeks challenge, And will be over soon to see what you all have done with this challenge.

I then printed out The Thinking of you sentiment, before matting and layering using the leftover card stock and backing papers

Diamond top card

I had a go at trying something a bit different, this card is a lot easier to do than it looks, I am sure I will be making a few more of these card I put a piece of scrap pearlescent card through my cuttlebug, then went over the top of the embossed design with chalks, I then coloured my Bella Image with water pencils, cut her out and mounted her onto the embossed mat with 3D foam pads, I then added a flower from Fred she said, the final bit was a sentiment from Pink petticoats

Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers

I have just joined one of the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers groups.
the idea is a sisterhood group, where we can be a support and a friend to fellow blogging and stamping sisters. If you're tired of hearing the fake (yet well-intentioned), "Yeah. Uh huh. That's nice," when you show your friends or DH your stamped creations, this is the place for you. These groups are for giving feedback and sharing friendship.
Here is a bit of information about myself for my blogging sisters
I have always crafted in some way or another( knitting ,cross stitching, Decoupage) for the last three years I have been paper crating, I enjoy stamping , decoupage, scrap booking,parchment craft everything to do with paper crafting.
I live in Wales and have been married for 26 years we have three grown children, and a little yorkshire terrier.
I enjoy chatting and taking part in swaps with the members of crafters companion forum, every week I do them a sketch challenge, that I post on my blogg. If any of my blogging sister would like to join in please do.
You can find all about the sister hood here
