I thought this stamp, Secretive Tilda, coloured in with Promarkers, was perfect for a card to pop in with a gift. I teamed her up with some of the paper from Papermania's Summer Bloom 6" x 6" pack, a doily and some organza ribbon in raspberry pink. I left the inside blank for me to write a wee note but I did decorate the back just to finish it off.
Next, a quick challenge Christmas card, using paper from Docrafts Penelope & Percy A5 Paper Pack.
In fact, I relied on the paper for the images of the two penguins skating and just added a bright turquoise patterned ribbon from SGS, a white brad and two snowflakes, again from SGS. This card got the inside treatment as well as the back.
The pattern strip and the tag came from the same Penelope & Percy pack. I decided to submit this for the A-Z Challenge on the Docrafts site. The object of this challenge is to make a card a day over 26 days starting 1st November featuring a letter of the alphabet. I submitted this one as A for Aqua.
Finally, here is the card I made today.
The image is a digital stamp, Kitty Santa, is from Pink Cat Studio - I think this character is so cute coloured with Promarkers, hat trimmed with Fluffy Stuff and glitter and a new collar complete with bell.
Bearly Mine Designs. There are some beautiful digital papers available on the site and I see that Donna has started a new challenge blog this month. I framed the card with glitter by adhering a strip of very sticky double-sided tape all round and then covering it with green glitter. I added a punched lace border in gold paper and tartan ribbon bought from local craft shops.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - red poppies, green cherry blossoms and tiny red rose buds. The oak leaves punched from the X-cut Botanical Punch.
I added the same punched border inside the card with a sentiment that I made using My Craft Studio Professional. I just love that I can turn my own sentiment into a circle and add any digi image I want - this means I can make a very individual sentiment as I have done here.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A-Z Docrafts - card with B as the theme
Docrafts Digi Challenge - Digi Cat card
Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Card in classic Christmas colours of reds, greens and golds.
That's my post for tonight - I'm off to play with my Cuttlebug. Tomorrow is WOYWW day so I'll be posting a pic of my desk whatever state it is in in the morning.
Bye for now
