Festive Sparkle

Its certainly a lot chillier in the south today - but at least its dry! I hope the rain has subsided for you too!

This month's challenge at Crafty Individuals is Festive Sparkle so I created this card with this in mind. I used the deer stamp on acetate and embossed it with White Twinkle WOW Embossing Powder. I created the background card using Cosmic Shimmer Sprays and then stamped snowflakes and embossed them with WOW White Puff Twinkle. The card was then finished off with ribbon and a wooden snowflake.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Wow Embossing Powder  - Christmas
Try It on Tuesday - Christmas Sparkle
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Non Traditional Colours
Fashionista Challenge - Blue Christmas

Happy ThanksGiving and a Simple Card

Firstly I would like to say a Happy Thanksgiving to all my followers in the US who will be celebrating today. I do hope you have a great time with your family.

Here in the UK we are slowly gearing up for the festive season and I'm snowed under with card orders! I treated myself to an early Christmas present this week - a mini Cricut - so I can't wait for it to arrive!

I couldn't sleep last night so used a set of Personal Impressions stamps which I bought in the sale last Christmas to make this simple card. I am really pleased with the result.

Studio 12 Christmas Card Make

So are we all crafting for Christmas?!  I seem to have been for a very long time!

This is one of my new cards I've made  for my forthcoming craft fairs for Christmas. I love the images that Studio 12 put in their CD collections. This is a card I have made. I created the scene using the backing papers and images. I decoupaged the house and added glitter accents to the house and trees. The final decoration was the heart with the bakers twine.

I have lots more new cards to share its just getting time to upload them all!!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

A New Arrival

Well half term is almost over so looking forward to more time for crafting! This week also saw a new arrival to our family when my cousin gave birth to a baby boy on Wednesday (yes, Halloween!). So I have been asked to make a few new baby boy cards this week!

I though I would share this one with you. I purchased this great frame stamp from Zoe  who creates some fabulous work and often sells some great bargains! It was second hand but in great condition. The pram was a stamp from Hobbycraft which I stamped and coloured with Promarkers. Finally the greeting was stamped with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

One of my favourite companies Little Claire has a challenge which is themed New Arrivals so I am entering this card into the challenge.
