Wintery Wishes

 Love this combination of the hedgehog (NBUS) and big letters. Just so happy.

Added some glossy accent to the berries.

Rainbow Birthday Wishes

 I am very happy to guest designer at AAA Birthday Challenge this month.

I started with the butterfly cover plate and turned it into a stencil using rainbow colours.  So I ended up with a 2 for 1.

I used some of the white butterflies to add some interest and depth.

I die cut a frame and popped it up to add interest to the more white card.

Just love the bright rainbow colours!

Peace & Joy

 A challenge a little out of my comfort zone - Black, White & Gold - especially for a Christmas card. Using my NBUS Paper Rose Little Angel Builder die & Delicata Gold refill ink. I painted it on the wings & halo, and splattered on the black background.

The Delicata Gold gives the perfect shine.

Monochrome Ornaments

 My friend lent me her set of Pinkfresh Studio Ornaments - simply wonderful that it has the accompanying stencil and die. I decided to go with a monochrome gold/creme set. I used Platinum embossing on cream card, and stencilled in shades of cream/gold adding a little Delicata Gold here and there.

As wonderful as it would be to put them all on one card, I decided to see how many cards I could get out with one set of ornaments.  Turns out I got 5! Yippee!

For the first design, I used 3 ornaments on the card varying the shapes and sizes to get a good balance. I can't remember who gave the great tip of scoring the edges of your top card but thank you. A extra touch for a CAS card.

I also painted in parts with Delicata gold refill ink.

For the second design I used the positive and negative dies of an arch.

For the negative cut, I embossed the card with a linen embossing folder to give a little texture.

For the last lonely ornament, I was wondering how I could use it. Such a particular shape and not that big.  But then I remembered this wonderul star embossing folder! Gives it that extra impact.  And I just love these dies of tag/labels that also have a matching embossing folder to give them extra detail.

Noel Robin

When I spotted the Penny Black Immense Noel, I knew it would be perfect to put a focal image in the "O". This is my first card with it. I used the little robin from the Jolly Critters.

I made a second one and added some sparkle "snow" to the top of the Noel.

Which do you prefer?
