Christmas Bears - Mistletoe - Triple Easel Card

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you safe and well.  My card for today features Lili of the Valley Christmas Bears, Mistletoe and I have again used the fabulous Little Squares.


I am a bit obsessed by this style of card at the moment and this is a variation on the theme.  Instead of mounting them one behind the other they are side by side.  I am really happy with how these have turned out.

List of materials used to make this card:
White cards stock to make 3 circle easel cards and mounts. 
3 Little Square images from Lili of the Valley, lots of glitter has been used which does not show up on the pictures.  I have also used glitter glue dots round edges of images for extra sparkle and bling.
Die cut circles from glitter papers.
Flowers, ribbon, leaves and sentiment are all from my stash.  


Image showing card closed.  This measures approx 9" x 5" and smaller images fit under larger central image.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:



Another view from above showing sentiment and floral details on the bottom of the card.  I have loads of these little images which I have purchased over the years and it is lovely for me to see them made up into cards with a difference.

I am so honoured that this card has been chosen as a favourite of the week on Splitcoast Stampers for week ending 4th November 2012;  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2280686?&cat=500&ppuser=329614

Sending hugs to you all.

Whispy a Chistmas Fairy

Hello again to everyone.   I hope this finds you well today.  This is my second posting for today. Although actually I scheduled my last post yesterday evening.  Today is freezing here and we may be facing our first snow of the season on Saturday.  This is unusual for us in the South of the UK so early in the year. 


I have really enjoyed making this card.  It features one of my all time favourite images Whispy by Krista Smith for Saturated Canary.   She is so gorgeous and a delight to colour.

List of Materials used to make this card:
Centura Pearl card cut with Spellbinder Dies to make shaped card base approx 5.5" x 5.5".
Designer papers are by First Edition and from the Stocking Fillers Pack.
Wonderful Whimsy image coloured using various shades of pink with my trusty Promarker Pens and detailed with my pencil stock.
The image is mounted on another Spellbinder die cut.
Other die cuts are wreath and seed head which are from Memory Box.
Pink crush ribbon, pearls, doily and Prima flowers are all from my stash.



I would like to enter this lovely little lady in the following Challenges:

Christmas Splendor Easel Card

Hello to all, me again I am afraid.  This is the second in the series of vintage style cards which I have been making.  This wonderful image is again found on  http://freevintagedigistamps.blogspot.co.uk/ and I have imported the image to Photobucket and done some work and voila.  The pictures here do not do the detail justice.  I have used Autumn shades of browns, creams and golds to reflect the turn of the year.


List of materials used to make this card:

Centura Pearl cardstock for card base. 
Wonderful Designer Papers from Live and Love Crafts - my favourite place for Designer Papers at the moment.   This is Stars and Sparkles and is by FabScraps.  
There is also layer in Forever Santa.
Wonderful vintage image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps.
Pearls, ribbon, feathers, gold glittered leaves, gauze, glittered gold Prima flowers and gauze are all from my stash. 
Die cut doily from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Lots of Tim Holtz Distress Ink has been used on all borders and die cut details. 


I have made this card as an easel card.  This is not only one of my favourite styles of cad but allows more of the delicious designer paper and detail to be displayed.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:



Further detail of the base of the card showing Marianne die cut tree and Memory Box die cut snowflakes with pearls from my stash.


That's it for me at the moment.  I have some more lovely images to mount on cards so watch this space if you like vintage style cards.
