Pass the Parcel

It’s been so wet and miserable this past week, so I’ve managed to make another Christmas card, and this time I’ve used one of Di’s Digi stamps – Pass the Parcel Mice.  I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and cut around the image with a Holly Ring die from Yvonne Creations, the edge of which I sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  The edges of the papers are distressed and the die cuts are glittered with Imagination Crafts Detail Sparkle.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment tags are from LOTV.

Gifts on the Tree

In January I decided I would make 3 Christmas cards each month, to avoid a last minute rush this Christmas.  Well you know what they say about the “best laid plans…”  and until now I only had 8 cards in my Christmas pile – this one makes 9…. so I’ve a long way to go.

I used a digi image – Gifts on the Tree – from LOTV, coloured it with Promarkers and Copics, and added liquid pearls and Glamour Dust.  I sprayed Spray and Sparkle onto the blue paper and distressed the edges of the DPs and the image square.  The die cut snowflakes are from Toga (I think) and the Snowflake Corner is from Memory Box – all glittered with Glamour Dust.

Grown with Love

I haven’t made a card for about 5 weeks now, as we’ve been on holiday in our caravan in the south of France.  We went for 3 weeks initially – but the weather was so good and we met up with several of our old friends – so we stayed a bit longer.  We first went to that camp site 28 years ago so it’s like our second home.  I’m now wading thru the washing – not helped by the iffy weather we’re having here in the centre of France.

This is one of several cards I now need to make in a hurry.  I used Grown with Love, from Di’s Digi stamps, coloured it with Promarkers and Copics, and cut around the image with a stitched square die.  I distressed the edges of the papers, from Polkadoodles, and cut a stitched square frame.  The butterflies are First Edition dies, distressed with inks, and the trails are Liquid Pearls.  The sentiment is from LOTV, the flowers are from the Ribbon Girl and the lace and pearls are from my stash.

Spells for Beginners

 I hope my post for this has scheduled – as we will be driving to the south of France when the Fab’n Funky challenge goes live.  Our lovely leader, Judith, has chosen the theme – Marvellous Men !! for this week’s challenge.

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Dr Digi with a prize of 2 digis for the lucky winner.

Dr Digi gave the Design Team their choice of images to play with but I chose to use Spells for Beginners – available here – which I won a little while ago.

Spells for Beginners

I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers and die cut it with a Spellbinders Curved Rectangular Frame.  The papers are from Whimsy’s Teen Boys Papers, the sentiment is from LOTV and the stars are die cut.

Red Car

I hope everyone enjoys lovely weather over the Bank Holiday weekend.  It’s been very hot here in France,  but next week it’s supposed to rain – hope the forecast is wrong as our son and his little daughter arrive tomorrow.

I made this card for my son in law’s birthday, using Toot Toot from LOTV, which I coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are from Whimsy and the sentiment is a stamp which I embossed.  I embossed the cloud images, fussy cut around them and distressed the edges with blue and grey ink.  The cogs were die cut with an All Occasions die.
