Pumpkin Fun Mice

This Halloween card is for our youngest grandson – it’s one of the cute images from Di’s Digi Designs and is called Pumpkin Fun.  I coloured it with Promarkers and cut around it with a stitched square die.  The background paper is distressed at the edges and the ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated – using Chiller font – and the web is die cut.

Waiting for Witches

I made this as a Halloween card for one of my grandsons.  I distressed the background with Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord DI inks and and then I decided I didn’t like it – so I did another one, and while waiting for that one to dry I had a little play with my stamps.  The Lavinia stamps I used are Mooch, Bats, Star Group Miniature, Slender Mushrooms and Whimsical Wisps –  and after seeing them on the first background I decided I liked it after all…!!  The grey Whimsical Wisps do actually show up in real life – just not on this photo.

4th Birthday Dreams and Wishes

I was looking for an image for our youngest granddaughter, who will be 4 at the end of this month, and I can’t believe I’d forgotten about this one – Dreams and Wishes from Sugar Nellie.  It’s such a lovely image and it’s been quite a while since I used it.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, added Stickles Star Dust to her wings and cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The flowers and pearls are from my stash and the leaves are die cut from the green backing paper and sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  The die cut butterflies have liquid pearl trails.  The stamped sentiment is embossed.

Sledging Bunnies

I have another Christmas card to share – it’s for our youngest grandson, who has just turned one.  I used the LOTV digi – Sledging Bunnies – coloured it with Promarkers, added Stickles Crystal to the snow runs and printed snowflakes, and fussy cut around the frame.  The die cut snowflake is covered with white acrylic paint, which I bought a couple of years ago, and never used.  I found it while tidying my craft room recently and thought it would make a change from glittered embellies.  The stamped sentiment is embossed and the ribbon is from my stash.

Winnie Witch on Webs

I’ve used Winnie Witch, from Polkadoodles, to make a Halloween card for one of our granddaughters.  Winnie is very cute little witch and I coloured her with Promarkers and stamped a couple of bats from a Lavinia stamp beside her.  The  turquoise web is die cut and the spider band was cut from a free paper I found on the Internet.  The sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font, and the ribbon is from my stash.
