Maggie's Christmas

Hi Everyone
I hope you all are keeping well.
Not long to Christmas now so I thought I would post another Christmas Card this week.

I used Sue Wilson Maggie die for my focal element and added SB layered poinsettias which I embossed with CS ruby red slippers brilliant embossing powder, It is such a rich colour I love it and completed them with black gems. I seated the larger one on to black ribbon, and added a few leaves to both Poinsettias.
I embossed a piece of white card with an embossing folder (a freebie)  and then matted and layered on to red then black card using SW double pierced squares.

Where do the weeks go, have you started buying your presents yet?
I have bought a few and I have my youngest daughter birthday just before Christmas too.
Many thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Purple Snowflakes!!

Hi Everyone
Well what terrible weather we have been having we have a wonderful puddle (more like a lake)  outside our house that nearly goes right across the whole road. I hope everyone is ok out there and has not been affective too much by the rain.
Anyway on to todays card
 A combination of old and new on this card.
I have used one of Phil Martin Scribbled Snowflake verses for the focal element of this card. His sentiments are wonderful (note to self to add more of Phil's stamps to my wish list ) lol.
I still love the Elegant Labels four die from SB.
The snowflakes are from SW Bold Snowflake which are heat embossed with CS Brilliant Sparkles Frosty Dawn and Vivid Violet powders, with a pearl in each centre.
I think the colours are wonderful. I hope you can see the sparkle in the photos!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Snow Globe Penguins

Hi Crafty Friends 

Here is today's card, the penguins from Hobby Art -Poles apart stamp set.. a wonderful set.

 Aren't these penguins so cute...
I started by stamping the image in Watering can Archival ink which I embossed with clear embossing powder. I coloured the image with my promarkers. I have a snow globe mask which I placed over my image and embossed. I then hand cut the snow globe out.I masked off the penguins and created a snowy scene by using two different sizes of polkda dot masks. I inked through them with tumbled glass disagree ink.
For the sentiment I used one of Phil Martins stamps and curved it to fit into the bottom of the snow globe. I heat embossed in clear then coloured over with ink which makes it pop.
For the background I embossed a piece of white card with a snowflake mask then added versamark to the embossed snowflakes which I covered with clear embossing powder. I think you can see the shine in the photos.
I then created a frame from dark blue card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Winters Deer

Hi Everyone
How are you all.
The weather has turned really chilly and blustery today but it looked beautiful outside with the sun shining.

 I just love the way this card turned out. A very CAS card.
The image is from Polkadoodle (the deer family) which I coloured in with my promarkers.
I added CS Glacier Ice at the bottom of the Deer's feet to give a winters feel to the card.
I framed the image with SW double pierced dies.
The card stock used is Milk and Taupe from CE teamed with brown from Limetree Crafts.
A great card that could be used for a winter birthday or a Christmas card.
Many thanks for taking the time to stop by.
