Christmas is coming...

...and I am getting my cards done! Here are a few:

Using the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder. I sprayed the embossed white card with pink glimmer mist and then brayered over with white ink. Trees are cut from Basic Grey Two Scoops paper.

Another cuttlebug embossed background. Stamp is from Sugar Nellie and coloured with colour pencils.

More embossing, and a bit of sponging on the leaves. :)

Stamp is from Sugar Nellie, yet more Cuttlebug embossing.

And finally, one without embossing! The background is Basic Grey papers. This time the image is done with watercolour.

Something Brown

Here is a card I made for the Stamp Something Challenge, which this week is Brown Plus Something. I coloured the stamped image with brown ink and a water brush pen using various strengths for the different shades. The card is rather country-ish I think. Something a bit different for me. Very simple layout, but I like simple. :)

Happy Birthday Mum x x

I made this card for Mum, whose birthday it is today. It went through many incarnations, and this final one is totally different to what I started out with in my head. I'm pleased with it though. I stamped the Inkadinkado bird in white on brown card, then coloured over with colour pencils. The background border is a Prima Stamp. A stitched border and a Happy Birthday rubon, and it's done. Sounds like it should be quick, but boy did it take me a long time. I just kept making mistakes with the stamped border. Got there in the end though. :)
