Autumnal birthday card

Morning folks - jumping on here quickly before starting on the garden today!    This is my latest Marianne card for this month on the Marianne Inspiration blog here.  I've used their new and very fabulous tree stencil which comes with two different types of tree outline - I used the fir tree version on a previous make for a Christmas background.  

I've then stamped, die-cut and coloured the toadstools, leaves and acorns for the detail at the bottom of the card.  Full list of  Marianne products below.

Happy Birthday!

I was totally smitten by a CAS card made by Chris Stokes who creates this style of card perfectly.  It was also a perfect card for my daughter's partner who is a bee keeper.  You can see Chris's version  in the Clean and Simple card making group on Face Book and lots more of Chris's stunning cards here on her blog.

I've used a Lavinia stamp for the bees and a hexagonal stencil that I found in my stash!  The birthday die is a PTI one that I've cut out several times for depth and stamped with the matching stamp from the set.

Hugs, Juliex

Christmas in August

Morning folks - well we have a Christmas in August theme on our new challenge starting today over at Passion for Markers.

I've used one of Mo's Digital Pencil's Christmas Gnomes - this is from the Father Christmas Gnome set - I'm still loving these guys!  I've also used a brand new mask stencil from Marianne Designs for the background.  So simple to create but so effective I think. And you get two types of tree backgrounds on the stencil - these Fir tree outlines and also an oak tree style option.

 I've also added a new lamp  post die and the sentiment from Marianne, details below.

Marianne Products Used

Hope you will come and play along and get one your Christmas cards on the go!

Hugs,  Juliexx
