Winnie – Surprise Gift

I made this card for a friend and I can blog it, as she will have opened it now.  The image is Winnie – Surprise Gift, from Polkadoodles – and the paper is also from Polkadoodles.  The die cut butterflies are from First Edition Dies, the tiny gems and ribbon are from my stash and the sentiment tag is from LOTV.

Not a Mouse was Stirring

My card making slowed down last week as the weather was great and I worked in the garden and did some painting outside – the wood sort, not the artistic kind..!!

However I’ve made another Christmas card – using this cute image from Di’s Digi Stamps Not a Mouse was Stirring.  He looks so comfortable snuggled up on that mushroom.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut round it with a stitched circle die.  I added white Frantage for the snow and the holly berries have Glossy Accents on them.  The snowflake and stars are glittered, the sentiment tags are from LOTV, the ribbon and gems are from my stash and the tiny pom pom trim is from Ribbon Girl.

Hedgehogs Butterfly Play

There is a new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Challenge and the theme is

INCLUDE AN ANIMAL

The fabulous prize for one Random winner is one digi of choice from Di’s Digi Stamps.

I used Hedgehogs Butterfly Play – available here – for my card.

Hedgehogs Butterfly Play

I always love colouring Di’s cute little hedgehogs – with Promarkers and Copics this time – and I added Stickles Star Dust to their butterfly and its trail.  The papers are distressed at the edges and I added several die cuts and some tiny punched butterflies.  The pearls are from my stash.

We hope you will join in our challenge and if you use an image from Di’s Digi Stamps, or any CandiBean image, you have the chance to win 2 images from Di’s Digi Stamps, in addition to the Random winner prize.

Butterfly Bunny

I was lucky enough to win this adorable All Dressed Up image recently and I couldn’t wait to play with it.  It’s called Butterfly Bunny and I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics.  I love pink and grey together on a card and this one is definitely pink..!!  I added several dies – the flowers from La Cabina have become one of my favourites since I got them recently – and I sprayed them and the leaves with Spray and Sparkle.  The pearls are from my stash.

Snowman’s Hat

The weather improved and I managed to work in the garden for a couple of days.  We had our first bbq of the year and were looking forward to many more – and today…..it feels like winter again..!!

I’m sharing another Christmas card today – it’s Christmas Snowman from LOTV.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut around it with a Scalloped Pearl Rectangle.  I cut two pieces of card with the same die and placed them on a LOTV paper.  The La Cabina flower, and leaves from Leanne Creatif, were die cut from very pale green card and glittered.  The pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is embossed.
