Woodware Baubles

I loved this stamp from Woodware,not least because it isn't just a Christmas stamp - if you turn it upside down it can be a birthday card with balloons!!  Anyway, I made a few in different colours for Christmas - my colouring wasn't great really but I liked the finished cards- the sentiment comes with too.

Have a great weekend

Owl Moon

I thought this image would be just perfect for a couple who are celebrating their first Christmas in wedded bliss!  It is of course a gorgeous Mo Manning image - Owl Moon,

I coloured it with my Promarkers but kept it quite simple as the image is so the focal point.  Just a little Marianne cobweb circular die to frame it - LR0430.

Off now to do some last minute shopping then it's all about the wrapping this afternoon!

Winter Present

Today's card that I'm sharing is made with another new Christmas image from Mo's Digital Pencil - Winter Present.
I love the soft grey/and deep browny pinks here and had a piece of gingham ribbon that matched perfectly.

The frame is cut with a favourite Marianne Die - Anja's Oval Die, LR0376 -  and framed with Crystal Arch die cuts - CR1345.

All I have to do now is write them!

Lavinias with Oxides

I had a play with my Distress Oxides recently - they are just perfect to use with Lavinia Stamps.

These cards are quite simple but that's good sometimes, right?

Thanks for popping by.

Got the Wreath

So love the new Christmas images from Mo - this one is called Got The Wreath and the bonus is that it can be coloured as either a boy or a girl!

I love this Snowflake corner embellishment die  from Marianne Designs (catalogue number LR0497) too - the card just didn't need an awful lot else. just this fab sentiment which was part of a freebie set recently from Making Cards Magazine.

Passion for Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge

This little chap is flying in to mark the start of our Mega Christmas Challenge at Passion for Promarkers. The challenge lasts for a whole month with an amazing list of prizes from all of our sponsors.  The theme is easy peasy - just Add a Sentiment - and it doesn't have to be a Christmas card - the challenge runs until after Christmas, so as long as you use any sort of sentiment (and use your Promarkers/Trias/Flex/Aqua Markers ) then do come along and play with us.  My sentiment is the little wooden painted cloud from a set of wooden embellishments that I had in my stash.

My image is one of the fab 2 Dollar Digis from Mo's Digital Pencil - Cardinal (as if you really needed telling!).  I love him sitting all red and proud on his branch.
Apart from the image my flowers cut with the Marianne dies below are the only real embellishment that I felt this needed - and I've not covered up the pretty papers either!!

Poinsettia Dies - LR0435
Papers - Eline's Winter Bloc PB7037

My card on the Marianne Inspiration Blog

It was my turn to share a card on the Marianne Inspiration blog recently and here it is.  I love the large Christmas stamp and Die set with loads of different sentiments too but I think the word makes such a focal point on it's own too.

You can see the details of how I made the card here and a full list of Marianne products  used are below.

Christmas Song Stamp and Die set - KJ1719
Bells- CR1343
Holly Frame Die Set - LR0488
Basket Die - LR0436
Poinsettia Dies - LR0121
Papers- Berry Christmas PB7053

I made the flowers out of Foamarin - not sure if it was necessary with such a 'flat' flower but they add a nice touch of texture.

Also, I love the Holly frame die set!

That's it for now - off to do a bit of felting!

Hugs, Juliexx

Marianne Winter Dream Precoloured images

I thought I'd share some quick cards made using Marianne precoloured images - so need to do this sometimes, although I love colouring.  I really love these images and the soft pink and grey tones.  I teamed them up with one of new favouite dies from Marianne and their cute little feather dies. Full list below.

I do love the expression on the owl below!

Marianne Products Used

Frame Die - Anja's Marque Die Set - LR0483
Feathers Die - CR1412
Precoloured images - Winter Dream Decoupage sheet

Off to finish decking the halls now!!

Mo Ugly Sweater

Everyone loves a nice tacky Christmas jumper right?  So what better way to start December off than a card made with one!! This is from Corgi and Bess (Ugly Sweater separated version) at Mo's Digital Pencil. You get separated images without the 'ugly sweaters', with another jumper, without the lead so you can have loads of combinations with this set - fantastic value.
I teamed mine up with the Knitting die and embossing folder from Marianne Designs, along with the tag and sentiment- full details below.

Knitting Die and Embossing Folder set - DF3418
Lace Tag Die - LR0154
Eline's Handletterering Xmas Sentiment Stamp set - EC0156

It's blumming cold enough to wear this jumper up here, although we haven't had the snow that our Yorkshire neighbours have at the moment - stay warm peeps!

Warm Hugs, Juliexx

Felted Hare

Thought I'd share this little guy that I made a couple of months ago - I got a kit from a lovely lady on Facebook.  I do enjoy needle felting and when trying something new I like a little tutorial/instruction sheet to make sure I'm doing something correctly!   This kit was just great with some wool to spare and I think I will now make a few more.  

I've also just made a little robin who isn't quite right yet and doesn't have any eyes so will share him at a later date.

Happy Tuesday

Hugs, Juliexx
