A new challenge!

Over at the Hero Arts group Jacqueline has set a little challenge to get our card making kick started after the Christmas break.  The challenge is to case a card that you have been wanting to case and never got round to it!!  This is my card and its a CASE of this stunner by Iwona! I decided to go with blues as I have some new blue inks that I wanted to try, not really a summer colour as I would normally go with warm colours such as red, pink or orange. I am pleased with the finished effect though.

A Couple More Cards..

I have had time to make a couple more cards before I put away my Christmas stamps and Dies for another year!!  In my local Lidl I found some modelling paste and decided to try it on my cards with a brass stencil that I had.  I am really pleased with the results and quick to make too, you just need to let the paste dry for a couplke of hours.  I then added some stickles for shimmer.

This picture shoes the dimension created by the paste.

Mysecond card just uses the snowflake Memory Box die and some glitter card and pink vellum!!

Over at the Hero Arts flickr group Heather and Linda organised a Secret Santa which was great fun, I posted my gift to Barb in the USA and got this fabulous gift back from Deb also from the US.   Love her cute card and ATC and I have already put the snowflake die to use!!

This will be my last post for a week due to the busy holiday season so I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my followers a very Happy Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!

CAS Snowflake

I love this Memory Box Snowflake die, such a pretty shape and so delicate looking.  This is a very simple card made to look like a parcel, also as its quite flat it should be cheap to post!! I am adding this to the challenge over at "Addicted to Cas" which this week is "Snowflakes".
also I am adding it to the CASology challenge "Ribbon"
Thanks Judy for the heads up!!

I still have a few cards to make and the time is running out!!  I must get a move on!!

Lots of Cards!!

I have been busy this week with more Christmas cards, but have only been able to upload them today as We have been having serious computer issues!!! :0(  They are still not fully sorted and the computer is going back to be looked at again tomorrow.  That means I have also been unable to comment at the blogs I love to visit (Sorry Ladies)!! 

This first card is another for the current Hero Arts challenge, the deadline is today so have just managed to sneak it in!  This is for the category "A few of my favourite things" as again I have got inky with my Distress Inks!  

I bought a couple of new dies this week and couldn't wait to try them out.  The first was the Memory Box Christmas Bauble Die and I have used it to create a card for a work friend.  She wanted a card for her hubby with hearts and baubles. The background card is embossed with the hearts folder from cuttlebug. You can just about see it here!.   I am adding this one to the Die Cut Divas Challenge!

Another card using the same die, not a great photo as the card is red but looks pink here!!

The next two cards are using my new snowflake die, they are both based on a card Debby Hughes created for the Online card class that I have just done.

This one is a CASE from this stunner that Lizzy made.

I must crack on as I still have lots of cards to make and its now December!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend, and I am sorry for the long post!
