This is a card that I made for last Christmas, using all sorts of lovely things from Stamps by Chloe.
I have created the background sheet using an pine tree sprig stamp and lots of WOW embossing powder, and I used a lovely branch on acetate to create the golden embellishments.
Now on to the trees, which are another set of Chloe's stamps.As you can see I have paper pieced them, and I have raised the central tree for some perspective. Finally chunky glitter and faux snow were the perfect finish for this card.
Hope you like my card for today and thanks for visiting!

So for my card I have gone very CAS and I have used a lovely Sheena Douglas Orchid stamp, which I embossed in white embossing powder and then coloured using the water flooding technique and Spectrum Aquas.
I continued my flower theme by embossing my pearlescent backing card with flowers too, so add to the flower theme without over powering the delicate orchid.
Not my usual style but I really hope you like it!
PS - Don't forget to pop over to Fab n Funky and join in the fun.
Bye for now.

This week, we are sponsored by Little Miss Muffet, and I have chosen this gorgeous Dexter in Love image to colour up and get an early start on my Christmas cards.
A very CAS card, but hopefully bright and cheery too!
Thanks for visiting today, and keep on colouring!

Now on to the theme, which is Banners and Flags. I thought this would be the perfect opprotunity to get out on of my Tattered Lace Greetings Banners which, I thought went perfectly with this image, without over powering it.
So that's my card for today. Hoping that you like it and I look forward to seeing you over at the Cute Card Thursday challenge.
Bye for now.

I decided to spend a few minutes doing a blog post as, apart from my scheduled DT posts, I haven't actually posted anything for ages.
Here is a card that I made a while back, having watched a Sheena Douglas show where she showed how to make a background with sparkle pens. So I decided to experiment a bit myself and made about 4 backgrounds using this technique.
Here is the result of one of them which I finished iff using a variety of Lavinia and Inkylicious stamps.
This version was on water colour card, which made the spreading of the sparkle pen a bit easier, but the down side was that the fairy stamp did not come out quite as solid as I would have liked. Also, the water colour paper curled and no amount of flattening under books etc would get it perfectly flat again, so it took a bit of effort to get it stuck down on the card!
None the less, it was a very fun and creative few hours for me, and I will definitely be doing this again.
Thanks for visiting today!

Now there are many, many images I could have chosen from to fit this theme, but in the end I opted for this lovely little pair from Lili of the Valley - just because I could!
I have coloured them in with distress markers, and then challenged myself to use some older papers from my stash - I thought these ones worked out quite nicely with their little descriptive words.
Bye for now.

We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons this week, so I have added a delicate accent to my card using some 5mm silk ribbon with a lovely picot edging ( at least I think that's what you call it!)
For my image I have gone with a beautiful LOTV design which I have coloured with Distress Markers and Zig Real Colour Pens.
This was one of those cards where I was just able to relax and enjoy the process. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Bye for now.
