Unfortunately I arrived back from my weekend away with a nasty cold, so I have been stuck indoors for a few days. I have a sore throat and cough, but it hasn't stopped me making a few more Christmas cards.This first one uses again my new lucky find Snowflake corner die, which I have cut in glitter cardstock. I have just paired it with some snowflakes from Simon Says.
Again for this one I have just added some Simon Says snowflakes and a pearl, the sentiment is hot foiled. A card for the Simon Says Flickr group challenge.
Have a great weekend, I am going to stay home in the warm and hopefully my cold will feel better soon.

I have been busy making more Christmas cards, whilst visiting my daughter I found some craft items in a charity shop and this snowflake frame die was one of them, I am not sure who it's made by but I am really pleased with it.
For this card I die cut it in glittery card stock layering it up for texture.

I shall also add this card to the "Merry and Bright" challenge over at the Simon Says Flickr Group.

This was a simple card to make using the Facetted Snowflake embossing folder from Simon Says embossed in white card spread with some Stickles. I then added the silver glitter die cut Simon Says snowflakes.
The Sentiment is Hot Foiled and I just added some pearls and silver wire, resulting in a very sparkly card.
Also the Die Cut Divas challenge blog, which this month is "Anything Goes"
This was such an easy card to make that I will be making more to add to my card stash as I know it maybe raided very soon by my daughter!
Have a great weekend, its raining and windy here so I hope you are having brighter weather.

The theme this month at the Christmas Kickstart challenge is "Trees, Trees, Trees" so I made this card using the Chunky Tree die cut from Simon Says. I created the background using a gel press some Oxide inks and some snowflake dies, quite hard to see in the photo but very pretty. The sentiment is Hot foiled.
I shall also add this card to the SSS Flickr group challenge "Merry and Bright".
Have a great weekend

This card folds flat for putting in the envelope but pops up nicely when you stand it . The video was so easy to follow and I am really pleased with the results, I am sure I will be making more like this.
I am off to my daughters for a few days for a visit , I am really looking to playing with my little granddaughter Eva. Enjoy the rest of your week.

I love the platform pop up card die from Lawn Fawn, its perfect for children's cards and so easy to assemble. For this card I used various animal stamps and dies from Heffy Doodle, stamped and coloured with alcohol markers. I had fun with this one adding the balloons to signify a 5th Birthday.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, it's been very wet and windy here so I am hoping to get more Christmas cards made.

My daughter asked me to make a dinosaur birthday card for a little boy turning 3, I have not long had this Lawn Fawn platform die and I have been using it a lot lately, it seemed perfect to use it for this card too. I don't have any dinosaur stamps so went onto google images and found some free colouring pages that were perfect.
I printed and fussy cut three dinos and also the tree and volcano in the background. I then coloured these with alcohol markers.
This die is so easy to use and makes a fabulous little card for a child. My daughter was thrilled with it and the little boy loved it.
Have a great weekend

Gradually filling my Christmas box but still have a way to go yet.

I need to start building up my Christmas card stash and I already had this background made in my scrap box. It was made using my Gel plate, oxide inks and the Simon Says Tap Dance stencil, I also ran it through the Simon Says Crystal Distortion embossing folder.
I then added the die cut word and tree also Simon Says. The little penguins are from Heffy Doodles and have been stamped and coloured with Zig brush markers.
I am adding this card to the Simon Says Flickr group challenge "For the Love of Stamping"
Have a great weekend

I stampede and die cut all the animals and then coloured with alcohol markers. The card itself was really easy to make with the dies provided, I just used some patterned card I had in my stash.

I have recently got a Jelly plate and have made a few backgrounds with Oxide inks and various dies, this one uses a couple of Simon Says Snowflake dies pushed into the ink. I then added this older Memory Box die cut in glittery green cardstock. My sentiment is made with a foiling machine.
