Special Friend

I bought the set of Anna Marie Designs Blissful paper pads from Create & Craft weeks ago, and they’ve been sat there since.  Why I’m still buying stash I have no idea, my craft room is busrting at the seams!  But I really couldn’t resist this set, the designs and colours are sublime and perfect for shabby chic cards.  I {{{heart}}} these pads so much.

Whimsy Stamps have some amazing sentiment stamp sets, they really do and I fell in love with the bold font of the Painted Sayings set.  Love that the sentiments are all mix and match too.   I popped the sentiment behind a chipboard frame to make it the focal point.

Penguin with present and candy winner

Christmas cards are my favourite cards to make, I can go crazy with glitter and embellishments and we all know how much I love those!

I coloured the cute little penguin with copic markers:
Penguin C9, 7, 5; C1, 0, 00; YR24, 21, 31
Hat & Scark: B95, 93, 91
Present: C1, 0, 00, B93; E44, 42, 40

The colour scheme is simple, I stuck to the colours in the Pion North Pole papers that I’ve used and just built on that with the embellishments and layers.

I finished off the inside to match the front.

Flowers and Lace challenge at Noor Design

It’s a brand new month so a brand new challenge at Noor Design, and this month we’re doing Flowers and Lace …. perfect.
I’m always in a rush to get Christmas cards made quickly so having images already coloured and ready to go makes life so much easier.  So, I paired the Pion North Pole papers with an image from their Images from the Past sheet and job done.

I realised I didn’t “quite” follow the lace part … but ruffle trim is pretty darn close – yes?  I’m going with that Open-mouthed smile

I made the poinsettias using my favourite Christmas die – Christmas Set with Deer.  I unearthed an odd looking punch the other day which works perfect for the flower centre underneath the pearl.  I coloured the cosmos flowers with some Lindys sprays to match the picture, else the card would have looked a bit odd with the only red being in his hat lol.

Love the depth and dimension this ruffle trim gives, it’s gorgeous!
