Love Wings

Hello peeps!

I'm here not with another Christmas card, but a Valentine's card. My husband and I don't usually do the Valentine thing, but I thought I would do a soppy card for all you romantics out there.

I had a sort through some of my older Sizzix dies and came across the Heart Wings Bigz die and the Scallops On the Edge die.

Pebbles has a really cute Valentine collection this year called Forever My Always, so I've teamed some of the papers up with the dies.



What you need...

Dies: Tim Holtz On the Edge Scallops (656627); Tim Holtz Heart Wings Bigz (656638) - Sizzix
Patterned paper: Forever My Always 6x6 Paper Pad - Pebbles
Card stock: black, red
Gems: clear
Rub on: love
Adhesives

I'm not sure how many of the dies are now available, you may be able to find one or two on the internet. Any heart die would also work teamed up with some simple wings cut from patterned paper.

This card would also be perfect for an anniversary or just to tell someone you love them any time of the year!

I hope you like my simple little love card. Thank you for stopping by!

Christmas Houses

Hallo peeps!

I'm back with another Christmas make. I've done a lovely snowy Christmas night scene with cute houses in a row. It's a long narrow card that measures 7cm x 15cm with a side fold. 



What you need...

Stamps: Snowman Street (10001135) - Artemio; Merry Christmas sentiment
Ink pad: Tuxedo Black - Memento
Copic Markers
Baker's Twine: red

I bought this stamp set in a sale from a craft shop. On browsing the internet, there are still a few sets out there. The set not only has this adorable row of houses, but some really cute snowmen too. I'll insert a picture below.


I love doing unusual sized cards, it is the perfect excuse to make envelopes and use up some of the lovely Christmas papers I have in my stash.

Hopefully I will get time to make some more Christmas cards. I was looking through my stamps and dies the other day and there are so many ideas popping into my head!

I'm going to sign off now, thank you for popping by and I'll be back soon. TTFN! x

Loopy Christmas

Hello there lovelies!

As I stated in my last post, I want to challenge myself to try an do at least one Christmas card per week. I have done a couple, but haven't had chance to post them up. 

For the first one, I purchased an adorable set of stamps featuring animals in hats. It also has a fancy frame stamp so that you can set the animals in the frame and a sentiment in the banner.



What you need...

Stamps: Season's Greeting - Lil' Inker Designs
Ink pad: Tuxedo Black - Memento
Alcohol markers: Copic
Card: pale pink, pale blue
Dies: Christmas Trims #2 (659913) - Sizzix Thinlits

I've checked the internet, the dies and the stamps set are still available - woohoo!

I hope you like my little make, thanks for stopping by and see you soon! x

Rocking Rudolph

Hello peeps!

I know Christmas is over, but I am going to try and do a Christmas card a week (hmmm). This is card I created in the shape of Rudolph's head. It is cut so that the base allows the card to stand up, but rocks slightly. I made a lovely bright red pom-pom for his nose.



If anyone is interested to receive the template for this card, please contact me and I will send it to you. It will come as a Word document so you can download and print it off 100% scale. Then cut out the template to use to create the coloured card pieces.

It is very straightforward to assemble. You could use wobbly google eyes instead of black card ovals and maybe use a button, bell or card disc for his nose.

The highlights in his eyes were made with a white gel pen and the mouth detail is created using a black fine liner.

Hope you like my little creation. Thank you for stopping by! x

Merry & Bright (Using Cricut® Explore Air)

Hello loves! 

The big day is nearly upon us. Are you all ready for Christmas? I think I am, I have just enough time to post you a cute little reindeer Christmas card using the Cricut® Explore Air.




What you need...

Die-cutting machine: Cricut® Explore Air
Images: Reindeer (#M3E370) - Jolly Holidays Cartridge; Merry & Bright (#M39B28) - Winter Frolic Cartridge - Cricut®
Card: red, deep brown, mid brown, white, aqua, white embossed snowflakes
Pearls: red
Adhesives

If you don't have a Cricut® Explore then other digital die cutting machines will have reindeer and Christmas wording that you could use instead. Alternatively, you could use any manual dies that you have or even stamps.

I hope you like this adorable little card. I have another reindeer card that I'm hoping to share with you all tomorrow. Until then :o) x

Snowflake

My oh my! Where is the time going?

Hello lovelies, I'm back with another quick Christmas card. This one uses simple items that you will probably have in your craft stash.



What you need...

Die: large snowflake
Patterned paper: snowflakes
Card stock: white
Sentiment: snow themed
Gems: clear
Adhesives

As the negative from the die is used, you can keep the actual die cut snowflake for another project. This is a great project to use up scraps of paper and card, it's also very quick to make up. Perfect if you want to run off a batch. 

To give extra dimension, the die cut panel was attached to the blank with foam tape.

I hope you like this quick, simple little card, you can go wrong with snow themed Christmas cards. 

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I'll be back soon.
