Santa is on his way....

Hi Peeps...

A real quickie from me today because as most of you know, I've been in hospital (and maybe still am as I'm scheduling this post!) 

But I couldn't let Bellarific Friday go by without making a quick card using the fabulous Santa Sleigh Silhouette from Stamping Bella.

I masked a strip and blended some Distress Inks to give the night sky, also masking a moon.  I then stamped the sleigh in Versamark, before embossing with black glossy embossing powder.  I added lots of white gel pen dots to create the snow, after first sprinkling water over the Distress Ink background.

I'm afraid I can't remember where the sentiment is from, but I thought it was just right to finish off this quickie.

Hope you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog to see what my lovely fellow teamies have come up with, and also to the Sistahood Facebook page to join in the fun there and share your creations - we love to see them!

Season to Sparkle

Hi There Lovelies...

Today my card is celebrating the new November release at All Dressed Up.  I'm using 'Season to Sparkle' - which is perfect for any big occasion - and obviously is right up my street as it lends itself so beautifully to pink!

I went for more muted pinks this time - rather than strong pinks - as I wanted to create a delicate image (so as not to break her cocktail glass of course!).

Card Info:
Die - MFT Double Stitched Rectangle (altered to make longer)
Sentiment - Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
Paper - Anna Marie Designs
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/11/04 R20
Hair - E50/51/53/55
Pinks - RV00/91/93/95
Glass - B60

Glitter and Sparkly Gems

Hope you like my make today - and that you'll pop over to the All Dressed Up Facebook page to see what my lovely teamies have come up with to inspire.  We'd also love you to share what you make with All Dressed Up images - and of course, you can enter the current challenge too!

Fa La La...!


Hi Peeps...

I'm back today with a couple of CAS cards...  hopefully elegant in their style!

I used some Christmas Accents (mistletoe and holly) from the Digi Stamp Boutique - which has now sadly closed.  I coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them ready to add to my cards.

I then used an embossing folder for the main section, and mounted that onto gold mirri card with a border just showing.  The Fa La La word die is from Stamping Bella, and the Merry Christmas die is from Simon Says Stamp.

Two more in my ready to send pile!

I need to be prepared this year, as I have to go into hospital in a week or so to have a hysterectomy.  So, I'm a bit scared at the moment, and am trying to use my card-making as a distraction. I am told that I'll need to rest throughout December - they say 6 weeks recovery..  so I'm currently training my lovely man in the finer points of housework!

Hi Peeps...

OK.... yes it's pink!!!  Today's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella has us Babes using Edna...   she has such SASS!  Of course, she had to be pink....... and of course, she had to have lots of bling!!

I used one of the fabulous word dies from Stamping Bella too - a perfect kiss from this gorgeous girl!

I created the background using Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, sponged onto watercolour card... then sprayed with water to give the textured effect.  Then I diecut the frame, backed with the acetate, then using double sided foam tape (cut thin!), mounted it onto my background (after adding the sequins of course).
