Spoonful of Sugar challenge 27

Fab sketch on Spoon Full of Sugar this week which gave me the excuse to ditch the housework and use a Lili Of the Valley stamp I bought a couple of months ago. Now it's made I wish I'd either mounted it all on a mat gold card or stamped a faint pattern over the base card. Oh well, what's done is done, not many more xmas cards to make :o)
Imaginisce & DCWV paper, cuttlebug diecut snoflakes from cream glitter card, oval nesties, lots of gems, stickles and glamour dust.

very quick cards

These are all using buttefly kisses stamps. With either judikins black or silver ep or versacolor violet ink withblade rubbers hologram ep. I dont normally do quick cards so this made quite a change. Cant wait to finish Chrimbo cards now and get back to having fun with some stencils.

sketch saturday

This is for the sketch saturday challenge. I've used imaginisce paper with Sugar Nellies christmas honey stamp. It's hard to see on the photo but there's 2 holly sprigs and 3 red pearls at the top. A very quick and simple card but with there only being a week or 2 before I have to start sending out xmas cards I havent got as much time as I'd like.

On a roll

It's been lovely having the time to play again this week. This is one of the xmas Tildas. I've used last weeks sketch saturday sketch as it's one of my favourites. Paper is a Pebbles one which I bought months ago from Glitterpot. The pale aqua paper is from a flourish stamp I bought at the NEC.

This is another purchase from the NEC, the stamps are from Butterfly Kisses and perfect for making dangly cards. Again DCWV papers and that flourish stamp around the border of the frame. This is repeated inside but thought it looked better to photo it this way.

While I had the embossing powder & DCWV papers out I made this one. I feel as tho it's missing something but cant think what.
I'm useless at remembering the names of sets of stamps but this one is part of a clear set that comes with several snowflakes. If anyone recognises it please let me know so I can credit it.

Magnolia vs stampavie challenge

I seem to be in a purple mood at the mo and this is one made with a sketch on the magnolia v stampavie challenge blog. Paper is from DCWV stack, scallop cut on the cricut and I've stamped around Tilda with an unknown flourish stamp bought at the NEC.
Black ribbon is from Ribbon Box.

sketch saturday

My winter club kit from Magnolia arrived a few days ago and this has to be my favourite of the stamps included.

I've used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday with dcwv papers, brads from Trimcraft, cuttlebug folder and my favourite f&c pencils. Tildas coat ultramarine, leggings violet, legwarmers carmine rose and skates are light magenta. Edwins coat is mauve, trousers, hat & gloves indianthrene blue and skates are warm grey with a touch of ultramarine. With silver sakura for the blades and stickles for the fur trim.

friday sketchers

I've been a bad blogger this week. Havent a clue where the time has got to other than middle daughter has moved out & I've been clearing the devastation she left.

I had a lil delivery of new Tildas yesterday, woohoo. The first is using the sketch on Friday Sketchers. The striped paper is DCWV and the paper underneath is just white pearl stamped with red stayzon and a clear inkadinkado stamp. Cuttlebug snowflake folder and nesties. The snowflake in the corner was cut with SCAL & my cricut using iceflake font that I'd fiddled with a bit in PSP.

This is a 5*7 card. As you can see the tree is a bit bigger than you might expect from Magnolia. I stamped tilda first then masked her before stamping over with green versafine. Lavinia holly stamp in green versafine cutout and mounted in the corner and ribbon from the Ribbon Box. Very simple as I think this stamp could make cards look too busy if I'm not careful.
