Another CAS Christmas Card

Back today with another CAS card for the challenge over on CAS Colours & Sketches. This week there is a sketch - take a look

This is such a gorgeous sketch don't you think? Anyway here is my card

I used some free stamps from the new copy of Creative Stamping Magazine and an old piece of bakers twine I found in my stash.

Actually I'm lucky to be able to find anything in my craft garage at the moment. I recently moved everything into storage again in order to paint the walls. It's been done for a couple of weeks now but I'm still waiting on my new shelves and work top - it's all measured and ordered but not here yet! It's so frustrating trying to locate everything just to make a little card!

You may remember last weeks card HERE - I won a weekly winner award - thank you ladies of the CAS Colours & Sketches DT.

Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your lovely comments - see you son xx

Endless Wishes

So if you read my blog yesterday you would have seen a lone Christmas card created with the Endless Wishes snowflake set. I did make quite a few more but the weather was lousy and it was impossible to take any decent piccies. Well today is no better really but I took more photos for you - come and take a look

The last pic shows two spare panels - I usually go wrong and make a mess of things so I had a back up plan. I actually didn't need them this time so I will have two extra cards!

These cards are available to buy along with many more that you will be seeing here. If there are any that you like the look of email me and I will send details.
I also make personal cards and cards for special occasions, again just drop me an email and I will send details.

Today's cards will be sold as a pack of 8 and will cost £5.

Thanks for looking - see you soon xx

CAS Christmas Style

A quick post today - I have a Christmas card created cleanly and simply for this week's challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches
Here are the colours I am working with

And here is my card

I randomly stamped a panel of Whisper White card stock with the snowflakes from Endless Wishes - some were embossed with gold embossing powder along with part of the sentiment.
The card stock panel was then attached to a white card base.
I did make a few more of these but the weather is so dull today I will try photographing them again tomorrow. Today's were so bad I think I'll quit while I'm ahead!

Thank s for looking - bye for now xx

Anniversary Swans

I bought a craft magazine recently and it had some free stamps with it - who doesn't like free stamps eh?
They were all bird themed and in amongst them were these lovely swans. I fell in love with them instantly and had to use them straight away on an Anniversary card for my cousin and her husband - here's my card

The base card is some textured Coastal Cabana card stock and my scene is sponged on to a piece of die cut card. The dies are from the Apothecary Accents set along with the two one I used to place each side of the scene.
The swans were stamped and cut out before attaching to the card with 3D foam pads.

Hope you like today's effort - more Christmas cards to come in the next couple of days - hope you can join me xx

Another Christmas Card

Yes I'm starting to think seriously about Christmas now so you will be seeing a lot more Christmassy stuff from now on!
Here is a clean and simple card made with a gorgeous poinsettia stamp

This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps - Joyful Christmas, and I've just stamped half of it on to the card base and coloured it with markers. I hand drew the border and added the sentiment in black.
Quite easy to mass produce too I would think or make several very similar to create a set.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look today - see you soon xx
