Christmas Cards #8 x 5 More Cards

This violet coloured tag made using Distress Oxides. Buildings done
with Copics and cut with Scan n Cut, Sentiment from Stamplorations.

Somes pieces flush with the tag others I used dimensional
tape on to lift slightly.

Fabulous little bear, mouse and cupcake  from Stamping Bella, 
coloured with Copics. Sparkle and gems added.

I used a die frame to cut layers of rainbow pattern paper. Added
funfoam for height.

Added a little Washi Tape around the edges as it still needed something
and finished off with a couple of snowflake sequins.

Distress Oxide blended on tag. Sentiment from Stamplorations.

Bear Skating by from MFT and trees and little peeking
gnome from I'm not sure.

blending with Distress Oxides. Colouring in Copics.
Scan and cut for images.

Puppy and the sentiment are MFT.

Santa and sentiment MFT. Colouring Copics.

Die cut frame from Pretty Pink Posh.

Shortest post for so many cards I have ever done. All my cards have gone
out and still haven't posted all but I think its time to stop worrying about
cards made for Christmas.

Being away visiting my aunt saying goodbye means I missed the last challenge.
Back home now and things will be back on track.

Hopefully there are still people reading my posts and checking out the cards.

All the best for Christmas and I hope you
come back again soon.

Christmas Cards x 5

Just when I thought I had made enough cards I needed to 
jump in and make another dozen or so. Not that I had
to do much, just mix and match and glue together. 

These sweet little mice are from a couple of different sets and look as cute as on blue distress oxide background.
The background was cut with a Pretty Pink Posh die. The die cut sentiment is from MFT

Images coloured with copics and cut with the Scan n Cut.

Distress Oxide background oranges and yellow. Penguins from MFT
coloured with copics and bits of shimmer added to their hats.

White die cut sentiment also from MFT

This next card I have only one photo of, I must have forgotten to save
a filewhen editing the photos.
This one is done in pinks and yellow Distress Oxides. Same little penguins
from MFT and die cut sentiment except this time in gold mirror card.

This background I did with yellow, orange, pink and deep pink and ended up
with a skyline sort of look. So I decided to add the Australian Santa and accessories.

Reckon it looks perfect for an Aussie Christmas Eve.
The die cut sentiment is Stamplorations.

This next card I had cut out all these cute opening squares and circles from
Pretty Pink Posh and done in a number of different colours but hadn't
thought much about what I was going to use them for and found 
myself deciding to hide little critters behind the hinged door.

Perfect for these ones the little mice above. The sentiment from
Stamplorations. Sadly I didn't wait long enough to add the glitter on the 
boot and the red bleed into it.

I hope you enjoy this bunch and see you again in a few days.

Then it will definitely be my last Christmas and back to floral.

Christmas Cards #6 x 4

I have decided I have enough Christmas Cards for now so might not show any after
today. Will continue making cards I think but save for next year.

I have used die cut sentiments from Stamplorations on all of these.
Again I coloured all images with Copics during Colouring Challenges last year and this year.

I also die cut and colour blended all the panels with Distress Oxide previously
so it is just a matter of putting things together that work for me.

The little sweetie here is a MFT (My Favourite Things stamp).

I added the die cut tag with fun foam behind it
to lift the layer.

I added glitter to the hat and sleeve edge, I just noticed I forgot the
bell, better colour that before I post off.

With this blended circle I only did half so it gives the illusion of
snow and sky. 

I had all these itty bitty images that I coloured up from
a Hero Art Kit from last year so I decided to make a scene.

I then added some white dots and little stars to finish it off.

This card is one of my favourites. I love these images from Mo's Digital Pencil
and you can also get them as rubber stamps from Penny Black.

Couldn't fit all the little fairies on the tag so just used the one
being watched by the snowman.

Any images that are cut out I used my Scan n Cut which saves lots of time.
I cut then colour as I hate the idea of an image not cutting properly and
loosing all that work.

My last card is another image from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I decided to add a layered frame around the coloured image and cut from
tropical paper as I felt that fit the colouring then a gold frame within.

Thank you so much for dropping by.

Hope you will drop by again soon
