Christmas Bauble

Good morning everyone
As it's only 14 weeks to Christmas it's time to start thinking about
making our cards. So, for today's card I have used beautiful papers 
from Lemoncraft's ' Christmas Greetings' paper set. Each sheet is just
so gorgeous and you really are spoilt for choice.
I've cut two of the baubles that are in the same paper set.
I've made the Poinsettia's from red Foamiran and used  chipboard
holly leaves to add more texture.
I've added faux snow to the wooden sentiment.

Products used:-
Lemoncraft Christmas Greeting 12x12 Paper Set
Holly  3 pcs - 0104
Foamiran Red 0012

Christmas Tree

Hi everyone
For todays card I have used papers from First Edition 'Christmas Promise' pad.
I've made the Christmas tree by firstly cutting a triangle shape from 300gsm card
then layering small pieces of hessian on it that I've soaked in Anna Marie Designs 'Structuriser'.
When it's dry it will be hard so it acts like a starch.
I've covered the tree in voile, and added pearls that I've cut from a
pearl garland. The wooden star I've covered in Inka Gold 'Silver' and
then Sparkle Medium 'Silver' for a bit of glitter.
 I've made the base from corrugated card and also added 
ribbon and lace. The MDF sentiment is also from Anna Marie
Designs and I've covered the tops with Snow-Tex.


Hope you like and thanks for stopping by...

Christmas Wreath

Good morning everyone
I'm getting stuck into my Christmas cards so if this offends you 
as it's early I'll  apologise in advance.
For today's card I have used Kraft card and papers from
Lemoncraft's 'Christmas Carols' pad that I've distressed at the edges.
For the focal centre piece I have used a wooden wreath and added frosted 
berries and Snow-Tex ( I love this stuff).
I've made the Poinsettia from maroon Foamiran.

Winter Fairy

Good afternoon peeps
I'm back today after a 5 day holiday in the Emerald Isle.
Visited Dungarvan, Kilkenny, Cobh and Cork and it was such fun
and amazing.
For today's card I have used Wee stamp by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy.
I love all her stamps they are all so pretty.
I've coloured her with Promarker's. and added liquid pearls for the snow.
I've die cut some Christmas trees and covered them using PVA and glitter. 
I don't use Pinflair glue  anymore as it discolours and goes yellow with age
and doesn't look pretty.
I've used Memory Box Poinsettia dies and cut them using a beauatiful
mint coloured card. The sentiment is by Creative Expressions.

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by....

Skaters

Hi everyone
Really suffering at the moment, I just can't seem to shake
this chest cold off. I've had it for weeks now and it's driving me bonkers.
For today's card I have used a gorgeous image by Lili of the Valley.
The papers were in my stash so I've no idea what or where they from.
I've made the Poinsettia's from white Foamiran and coloured them with
'Faded Jeans' distress ink.
The sentiment is a die by Creative Expressions and is my favourite
sentiment die. I've added glitter to the Christmas trees and liquid pearls
for the snow. 
Hope you like and thanks for stopping by...
