Santa and Rudolph

I’m sharing another Christmas card today, this time using the cute digi image – Are You Ready My Friend – from The Paper Shelter.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Aleene’s Glitter Snow for the fur on Santa’s hat and jacket, Cosmic Shimmer Detail Sparkle to his beard and Glossy Accents to Rudolph’s nose.  I fussy cut around the image and stuck it on a snowflake embossed piece of card. The stamped sentiment is embossed and the stars and fir branches are die cut and glittered with Detail Sparkle.  The gems are from my stash.

Pretty in Plaits

I printed this paper out to make a New Home card – but then thought I would use it to make an Autumn card and I distressed it with Tea Dye DI.    The image is Pretty in Plaits – from All Dressed Up.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut around it with a scalloped oval die.  The sentiment is computer generated, the leaves are punched and the gems are from my stash.

Halloween Silhouette

This card is for our eldest grandson – who also has his birthday on Halloween.  I’m not sure if he’s too old for a Halloween card – but I didn’t want to leave him out when his brother and sister will be getting one.  I printed the Bugaboo digi – Halloween Silhouette – onto yellow paper and distressed around the image.  The web is die cut and the bats are from Lavinia stamps.  The sentiment is computer generated – using Chiller font – and the small green gems are from my stash.

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.
