Merry Christmas

Hi crafty friends hope things are going fine for you all. This week is our big shopping week - hate it cos its food and not stash, lol. So while I have some time I'll do another blog.

I have used -
an A5 White card
Which I have matted with red card from Millers DieCut and
White card from The Range.
I have used an inverted corner punch on all corners.
Gems from stash.
Merry Christmas stamp from stash.
The image is a Mo Manning digi stamp called "Ragged Santa" 
Which I have coloured in with FM's.
Cut out with Xcut Fancy Rectangles and matted onto red card cut with larger die.
 I have tried to colour them in in the same colours that are used on Mo's website
as I fell in love with the whole package = the images and the way they were coloured. This applies to 
all the Christmas digi stamps I have bought from Mo's website.
Doing this has helped me with my colouring I find with the shading and blending.
I hope you will still like what I have done.
Thank you so much for visiting and thank you too if you have left a comment'

Hello crafty friends what a miserable day we are having. I prefer the cooler weather as long as it isn't raining. I know a lot of you prefer the warmer weather so roll on the weekend when it goes up a degree or two! Today's card is for a special friend whose favourite colour is green. She has items dotted around her lounge in this particular green that I've used.

The card is mainly done with the green from Papermill Direct. 
The cream card is from Millers Diecut. 
The topper is a Saturated Canary digi stamp coloured with FM's and cut out with X-Cut Fancy Rectangle. (Mistakenly named as Spellbinders Label 29 on other cards....oooops!). 
The topper is fixed onto a larger cut of the same die then fixed with foam pads onto the easel top. This easel top has been embossed and cut out from a Glitter Girl's Keepsake board. 
The Special Friend stamp is from an Art Deco set free with a magazine and cut out with a Spellbinders tag die.
The butterfly is a Marianne design die.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid.
The pearls are from Chloe Design.
Peel offs from stash.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving  a comment. 
I love reading them all and replying to each one.
Take care.
