Now for my creation for this week.

P1050267

I’m using Jingle Bells Rudolph from the Winter Wonderland Collection by Magnolia for my Christmas card today. I had this little fella last year and didn’t get around to using him (shameful I know) so I wanted to make sure he was coloured and shown some love this Christmas. I’ve used some Doohickeys dies on this card too. I’m using ‘Spruce’, ‘Cozy Fern & Snowflake’ and ‘So Wrapped Snowflake’.

Here’s the card with the ‘So Wrapped Snowflake’ tag out.

And here’s a close up of the image.

P1050269

My image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers. I’ve then cut the image out using a Small Classic Circle Nestabilities and layered him onto a Large Classic Nestabilites. This has then been layered onto a Stately Circle Die. All of these are from Spellbinders. I’ve then Frantaged around the image and also on all the die cuts using Shabby White Frantage.

I hope you like my Christmas card I have made to inspire you today.

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘A Card for a Child.

When I saw the theme for this challenge I knew exactly which image I wanted to use. This image makes me think of my youngest daughter who is 13 years old. Those that know her will understand. The image is called A Little Bit Grumpy.

I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers. I’ve then cut the image out using Spellbinder Nestabilities Label Twenty-Two. The pretty papers I’ve used are from My Mind’s Eye and are from their 6’ x 6’ Designer Paper Pad - Collectable ‘Memorable’. The colours are so pretty. I’ve edged my main card using the Flourish Lace ‘Around the Page’ Punch from Marthat Stewart. The Butterfly Punch is also from Martha Stewart and is the Monarch Butterfly.

My sentiments are both computer generated and then punched out using the Curvy Label Punch and Decorative Label Punch from Stampin’ Up.

Here’s a close up of the image.
