Teenager card and full front shaker!!

I needed to make some family birthday cards recently , this first one for a sweet 4 year old.  I really wanted to make a full front shaker and as this little boy loves monsters I went with this patterned paper I had in my stash. I die cut it to shape and used lots of sparkly sequins.

Such a fun easy card to make and Harrison loved it.  I am adding this card to the "Anything goes" challenge over at the Simon Says Wednesday challenge. 

This second card is for a youngster just becoming a teenager, again this was simple to make, I found the image on the internet printed, coloured and fussy cut it.  I had the background paper in my stash, added the sparkly dots and layered the skater girl up on foam tape for some dimension.

 I will also add this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Off to make some more Christmas cards now as I still need a few more.  Have a great weekend.

Green Christmas!

A quick Christmas card using the Simon Says "Outline Merry Christmas " Background stamp and a Memory Box die cut!

I stamped and embossed the background with white embossing powder and then distressed with Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean Distress Oxides.  I then water coloured in the Merry Christmas to make it stand out. 


 I then added the die cur "Country Landscapes" and lots of glittery stars.  Love this slimline design.

Another Gnome card!

Made this card for a couple of challenges, the "Lets Squash it " challenge this month is "Double Emboss"

So for the base of this card I have dry embossed using the Tim Holtz Border folder (I always think this looks like ice!) and then I brushed with my embossing pad and heat embossed with gold.

I then added the die cut gnome and snowflakes all from Simon Says.  Just love this gnome in gold and pink, so pretty!

 I am also adding this card to both the Love Flickr group challenge and the Simon Says Flickr group challenge!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Christmas Gnome

Love this cute "L'il Gnome" die from Simon Says , it makes a great santa !  Made this card using lots of glittery card stock and the Outline Merry stamp , also from Simon Says, I stamped and embossed in gold for even more shine!

Also decided to make a slimline card, such a fun shape !

 I am adding this card to the current Christmas Kickstart Challenge "Make for a loved one" and also the Simon Says Flickr Group challenge "Anything Goes"

I am still building my energy up and also finding my mojo again after the operation.  Slowly getting there!

White and Gold!

After making the green tree shaker card I decided to make this white and gold one for a more elegant design.

I die cut the tree and then ran the card through my Tim Holtz snowy edge folder, I also added some glimmer paste to the edge to give the card lots of shimmer.

I added gold sequins behind the shaker element and then added more trees using the same Chunky tree die from Simon Says.  The sentiment is computer generated.

 Really pleased with this card , I will definitely make this again in other colours. I am adding this card to both the Die Cut Divas challenge of "Anything Goes" and the SSS Flickr group challenge "Emboss it"

Hope you are enjoying your week, I am getting stronger by the day and managed a 3 mile walk at the weekend!
