Christmas Wishes ...

A contemporary, masculine Christmas card to share today.  White card blank and mat, Frantage background and trees cut from black, vellum, gold and patterned card stock.  3d foam mounted mat and some of the trees.  The sentiment was foiled on my Silhouette.

Bye for now, Jane x

HAPPY Birthday TO YOU ...

Just came across this die set; Sweet & Savory from Spellbinders recently.  I just loved Angela's card HERE and couldn't resist making my version.  

So multiple layers of card for the cake (incl cream and jam), colourful sprinkles and the aperture.  A vellum strip with white heat embossed powder and some gems to finish.

So effective and simple if not a little time consuming to make but well received, that is for sure.

Make sure you follow the link to Angela over at Spellbinders Paper Arts HERE

on our Anniversary ...

Today I have created an anniversary card using the Sizzix Painted Birds, something a little bit different I thought.  So I cut them out of white card stock and coloured them using Promarkers, WRMK gold foiling, Sizzix Surfacez card and the leaves are from a Doohickey box.

A couple of fun interactive Christmas cards to share today, loving the Dancin range from Spellbinders; this one is titled quite simply Dancin Penguin, super fun and very simply to construct.

Pattered paper from my stash on DL card blanks, greeting.  Some old Doohickey snowflake dies with gems.  A little white highlight and shaped bellies, plenty of skating fun for all.

So seeing as I haven't blogged much this year, naughty naughty, I thought I would post a creation a day throughout the month of December for a variety of occasions and not just Christmas, enjoy.

I am still here ha ha.  I don't craft so much in the Summer months, spending time looking after the garden instead.  Now the colder whether is on the way I will be back in my studio with plenty of creations to share with you.

Love the Anita Jeram illustrations bought to us by The Colarado Craft Company, the main image is titled Rooting for you which includes amongst other things the sentiment too.  The background stamp is titled Summer Garden.  Coloured with Promarkers, mat & layered with Sizzix Surfacez cardstock, a few gems to finish.
