Christmas Caroling Critters

Hi everyone – come and join in the new challenge at Di’s Digis where the theme is

FOR A CHILD

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

                                                               

I made my card using this adorable new  CandiBean image from Di’s Digis – Christmas Caroling Critters – available here.                                                                                                  

 I coloured the image with Promarkers, added Stickles Diamond to the lantern and also added Alenes Glitter Snow and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.  The die cut snowflake is glittered with Glamour Dust and the music notes are embossed with silver embossing powder.  The sentiment and gems 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.

Christmouse Decorations

I had great fun with this card which I made using the LOTV digi – Christmouse Decorations.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, glittered the star with Stickles Daiamond and added Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.  The die cut snowflake banner, from The Works, is glittered with Glamour Dust and the sentiment is embossed.

As you Like It Challenge – Rubber or Digis..?      I prefer digi stamps – there’s no waiting for the post to deliver – and that can take a long time in France..!!  Digis can be resized and they don’t need drawer space.  But I do like to use a rubber stamp for a sentiment – so I can emboss it.                                                                                                                                                           http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/11/do-you-prefer-rubber-or-digis.html

Penguin Pals

A week ago it was 18 degrees but for the past dew days we’ve had a frosty start and very low temps – down to minus 2 –  quite bizarre really..!!      So I’ve been staying in the warmth and making more Christmas cards.                                                                                                                    My latest card uses this adorable image – Penguin Pals – from Sheepski Designs, which I was lucky enough to win a few weeks ago.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and encased it with an embossing folder.  I ran my glue pen over the embossing and sprinkled it with Glamour Dust.  The flower, fir branches and stars are all die cut, sprayed with Spray and Sparkle and then distressed with grey ink.  The ribbon and gem are from my stash and the small sentiment tags from LOTV are embossed.

Festive Bears

James Bear has always been one of my favourites, and when I saw these new cute little bears from LOTV I had to add them to my collection.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, added Alleene’s Glitter Snow to their hats, Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels for the snow and liquid pearls for drops of snow.  The die cut snowflakes are glittered with Glamour Dust and the sentiment, from LOTV, is embossed.

Winter Christmas Deer

I have another Christmas card to share this afternoon – this one uses Christmas Deer from All Dressed Up.  I coloured the deer with Promarkers and fussy cut around it.  I cut a circle out of the background paper and placed white card, embossed with small dots, behind it.  The trees, stars, star semi circle, poinsettia, foliage and Winter word are all die cut and glittered, or sprayed with Spray and sparkle.  The twine is from my stash and the small sentiment tags, from LOTV, are embossed with silver embossing powder.
