Igloo and Penguins

As last I’ve finished another Christmas card – which takes my total to…. two…!!                            The image is Igloo Fun from Doodle Pantry – which has now closed down.  I coloured the penguins with Promarkers, added Stickles Frosted Lace to the igloo and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels to the ground, and cut round it with a stitched circle die.  The white card was embossed with a cracked ice embossing folder and the die cut snowflakes were embossed with silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is from LOTV – and embossed.

Funtime Cupcake Mice

I hope everyone is safe and warm – as the weather in parts of the UK has been really bad this week.  We have just had rain – and lots of it …!!

I used one of Di’s digis – Funtime Cupcake Mice  – on my card, coloured it with Promarkers and cut round the image with a circle stitched die.  The papers are all distressed at the edges and the small sentiment tags, from LOTV, and the stamped Birthday one are embossed.  The ribbons are from my stash and the wooden star is “coloured” with nail polish.  The star is brighter than it appears in the photo and has a pearlised effect – but I couldn’t capture that without sunshine.

Babe Superstar

I now have cards for both a new baby boy and a new baby girl – but I’m not doing well with my Christmas card target – only one so far…!!  I was hoping to make four a month…

I used the cute digi, Babe Superstar from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, and I coloured it with Promarkers.  The big star is decoupaged and sprayed with Spray and Sparkle – as are the small punched stars.  The papers and the image card are distressed at the edges and I coloured a piece of narrow white ribbon with a Promarker.  The sentiments are all from LOTV and the tiny feet charm is from the Ribbon Girl.

Oliver Skateboarding

I made this card for my son’s birthday – as he and his brother loved playing on their skateboards when they were much younger.

The image is Oliver Skateboarding from LOTV, and I coloured it with Promarkers.  The papers are Whimsy’s Teen Boys, which are great for male cards.  The gears were die cut from silver card and the sentiment is stamped and embossed.

Baby Girl

Last year I had to rush to make several baby cards – so I thought I’d be better prepared this year and make some “just in case”.

I used the LOTV image – All our Dreams – and coloured it with Promarkers.  The sentiment was included with this stamp and is embossed with silver embossing powder – as are the leaves and the Filigree Corner Die.  The papers, from Nitwits, are distressed at the edges.  The flowers and the baby feet charm are from The Ribbon Girl and the ribbon, lace and tiny pearl are from my stash.
