 Using a Phil Martin stamp set and some Spellbinders dies. Happy Christmas.

Classic Black and White

You might have noticed that I like making sets of cards.  On this set I've used a Sue Wilson, Creative Expressions die set that I bought at the last Alexandra Palace show and have only just got round to using. The stamps are by Verve Stamps and although the cards are relatively simple, I think they're quite elegant. I also made a little box to put them in.

Christmas Banner

Bit of a struggle to get this photographed but I hope you get the idea of it. I cut the banner and the letters on my Silhouette, the medallion is a Sizzix die, the doily is a die but I can't remember who makes it. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

More Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

These minis were inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. Snowflakes - Spellbinders, Sentiments - Verve Stamps and a fair amount of Stardust Stickles.

Quick and Easy Christmas Cards

A few simple cards in an effort to get ready for Christmas. I used some old Pink Petticoat images and coloured them with Copics. The card stock was new and seems to be coated so I couldn't get a smooth blended finish with the Copics but I quite like the watermarked look. The green embossed paper was actually created for the poinsettia card below but I couldn't make it work. TFL

Watercoloured Poinsettia

 I've been watching Jennifer McGuire on YouTube recently and particularly like her water coloured cards. They are the inspiration for this card.  I've used the Spellbinders Poinsettia along with a coordinating stamp set from Heartfelt Creations. I coloured them with distress inks and they added some sparkle with Rhinestone Stickles. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps. I'm quite pleased with how the poinsettia came out and wouldn't mind trying it again with some better quality water colour paper.

Oldies but Goodies

 I've made cards very similar to these in the past. Quick and easy Christmas cards using Pink Petticoat images and sentiments along with various embossing folders. Coloured with a mix of Spectrum Noir markers and coloured pencil. They're still cute.

80th Birthday Card

The 80th Birthday card that I made for my friend to give to her mum is my most requested card. (You can see it here.) Every time I get asked to make it I think to myself it would be nice to try it in a different colour or with a different embossing folder or just to have some kind of variation to it. So this is my effort to put another variation out there to help potential customers envisage the options.

The letters and numbers were cut on the Silhouette, everything is inked with scattered straw and spiced marmalade distress ink. The dies used to make the flowers are from Heartfelt Creations, other dies are by Spellbinders. You can also see that I've made a matching box and used a tonne of star dust stickles :)

 I'm still somewhat obsessed with inking up my embossing folders. Really happy with how this card came out, the photos don't really do it justice, it so soft and pretty IRL.

Embossing folders - Anna Griffin and Cuttlebug
Dies - fishtail, roses and sentiment strip MFT, label - Paper Wishes
Sentiment  -Technique Tuesday
Inks - worn lipstick and spun sugar Distress Ink, London Fog Momento

 I'm entering this to Simon Say's Stamp - Emboss it
