And these are the last......

Once again I have taken inspiration from Deneen of A Path of Paper. This little man is made using circular Spellbinder Nestabilities, I used 3 in all, the edges are sponged with Tim Holtz's "broken china" ink. The arms are just drawn on, as are the eyes and mouth using ProMarkers. The nose is cut from orange card stock. The ribbon is from stock.

I made a bunch of these cards also, so simple... The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat "Fairy Lights" kit. The sentiment is cut using Spellbinders Christmas tree Shapeabilities. I added a little ribbon from my stash just to finish the bottoms. I left the inside of the cards blank.

Hope you like,

Christmas cards galore....

Here are some other cards that I made for Christmas this year. I know I am late posting but "better late than never."

This card, I cased from Deneen of A Path of Paper . The backing paper is just plain navy paper, (doesn't look navy in photo but it is, trust me lol) and I stamped a snowflake background on to it with clear embossing ink. The "snowflakes" are made with 2 Fleur De Li's Shapeabilities, lining them up at a 90 degree angle to each other. In the first card, I did not cut out the centre of the shape but cut out the smaller pendant and layer it on top of the other pendants. (Does this make Than for the second card I did cut out the centre of the larger pendant, both card are quite pretty (even if I say so myself). I decorated them with Papermania's clear adhesive stones.

This is what I did with the inside of the cards. I printed out the sentiment and then cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Tags set. I sponged some Tim Holtz "Broken China" ink while it was still in the die cut. I mounted it on to the centre of the inside of the card. I sponged the bottom corner using one of the snowflake shapeabilities as a stencil, just to give the card a little extra.

Its Christmas Time

Well it is time I show some of my Christmas cards for this year. I have not made many just a few for a shop and them some for family and friends. I just find that people will buy Charity cards, which is a good thing, and they can be bought for such a great price, at Christmas. Some of these cards are lovely and cute though I do find that people will commission a card for that someone special in their lives.

I got most (if not all) of my inspiration for this years cards from Path of Paper. Deneen is so creative and I just love her style, simple but elegant. You should hop over and just see what she can do to a sheet of 12"x12"paper. Marvelous in my opinion. (No money changed hand for this endorsement, hehe) in second thoughts wait until you finish reading this. lol

This first set is very simple, I printed out the sentiment from my computer using different fonts on top of an A6 piece of Card Stock (CS), I then embossed the lower part of the CS with some Cuttlebug embossing folders. Than I added a ribbon between the sentiment and the embossing. This was then layered onto coloured pearlscent paper and then onto the main card. I left the inside of these cards blank.

In the second photo the cards are made in the very same way as those above, except, I have printed the sentiment in Irish, which is the official language of Ireland. The sentiment says "Nollaig Shona" meaning "Happy Christmas"
The card on the right is embossed using a Papermania embossing folder.

Since I photographed these cards, I have added some sparkles but I never updated my photo's - naughty me, tut tut.
