Chill


Its nice to have a break from assembly line Christmas Cards and use some of my favourite Mo Manning images. This little cutie is called Chill and I used my favourite make of papers Doodlebug.

The scallop border is Lawn Fawn and the frame round my image is MFT. The snowflakes are Simon Says Stamp along with teeny tiny ones from Lawn Fawn.

To finish a bit of ribbon and I can fit into normal post bow. The fluffy edges on her hat and coat is a mixture of flower soft and fun flock. Her icy breath is some glossy accents and a lot of glitter.

I'm working a few weeks in advance in order to free up some time for assembly Christmas Cards so apologise for any sold outs on Simon Says Stamp.

So to start my cute furry friend is obviously Ornamental Newton Stamp and I also have the die which I have used but to be honest I could have easily just stamped on the white. But it will be useful if I decide to use him again and put him on patterned paper.

Now I love non traditional colours and this pattern paper pad from Pink and Main called Frosty was crying out my name. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Oval to cut out the centre but you easily used any shape.

I think I brought the Believe die and Stamp set early this year too late for my Christmas cards, so I'm loving using it on everything! The sentiments are brilliant used it on a Scrapbook layout as well this year.

The Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips are MFT, I actually cut this out first then stamped the sentiment using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I do have a Misti but I only have a tiny workspace that I have to clear to open the side/top but the stamp platform the front comes off and I can stamp using the space I actually work on no clearing up the mess I make. To be honest what sold it to me was a Scrapbooking telling me I can use it on 12 or 8 inch cardstock!

Right back to the card my Bauble is another Simon Says Stamp die called Lulu and I used their Pine Needles die well I had some already cut from my Christmas Card assembly line.

Believe


Here's the card inspired by my Rejoice one for Snow White Simon Says Stamp Wedneday Challenge and I had a assembly line going to make another six cards.

This time I decided on only having two poinsettias one I think it works. The only difference is I used the Believe die and stamp set.

Need a lot more Christmas card to be made, I think I may have to buy some!!!!

Water Play


Ok they are pretty awful photos but the story and the my nephew's cheeky face is worth Scrapping. I hope it shows up better if you click on it.

I have a bag odd's and sods left from 3 packets of Echo Park boy papers and stickers which I have used. The paper that looks like wood and the green are other odds that worked with them.
I wanted a big letters so I cut them on the Cricut.

While doing this from a sketch I found on Pinterest I realised I made something similar. I had a real job to find it and in the end I copied it from my Scrapbooking on Pinterest because I couldn't find it on my Scrapbooking Blog All in One Place.


Inspired from MJ layout

Sizzix Robin


Sorry for the yellowy white card having real problems photo white cards which is a pain since I love white cards a lot.

While I was smooching on Amazon I saw this robin and decided he could be useful well 6 cards useful. He was a bit fiddly to assembly especially as I decided to ink round the die cuts to make him more life like.

The Holly and Mistletoe swirl is Cheery Lynn, I think and my sentiment is a clear LOTV. I dotted his eye with a white pen and I played with my corner punch to make a bit more interest in what is a plain card.

Ragged Winnie


I sorted out my Christmas box of papers and I found some really old ones, this one is Basic Grey out of 6inch pad but was too gorgeous to cut and use so it never was till now. still couldn't cut it.

So my gorgeous image is from Mo Manning called Raggedy Winnie, I actually printed on the patterned card for my base image and then coloured and fussy cut as normal. There were a lot of bits to cut and I could even do more with her skirt, I might do next time.

Christmas Cards means that my favourite dies are on my desk, so thats Simon Says Stamp Maryann snowflake and their Poinsettia Parade dies, along with their new Pine Needles Trio.

I did cut another strip of patterned paper but I needed of bothered its barely noticable, ribbon and a bow to finish.

I should of been making DT cards yesterday but instead I made another 9 supposedly quick cards.

I've just been to Mo's shop to get a link for my image and found out that there is a Coloured Version not sure I would like to print off several to make my layer image but could be handy if you want to make quick cards.

I saw the Snow White Challenge so I took it literally meaning a white card with a touch of red for Snow White's lips are red as the rose. It also meant I could use Simon Says Stamp Rejoice die.

You could be asking where's the Reverse Confetti product well its the amazing Pierced Round Top die. To start with I planned to used a small one and add a white bouquet, but I was looking at it and wondered if I could use the large one to make the actual card.

It was so easy to do, I just lined up the fold at the edge and run it through the big shot, you just have to make sure you cutting the right side. I did manage to make one opening the wrong way. I was so please how it looked and another 6 was made for my Christmas cards. Oh I using some Linen Card I think it makes my cards look more expensive!

I was pleased that the Simon Says Stamp Pine Needle Trio arrived in my craft room, they made a base for my Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade still my favourite poinsettia die. I found some small red pearls in my stash but I've recently brought Nuvo Red Berry drop the plan is not to buy as many gems in the future.



Here's a clue what I used for the same card but using the Simon Says Stamp Believe Stamp and Die set.
