Oh Christmas Tree ...

Morning all. As per usual I'm meeting myself coming back so am keeping my Christmas cards relatively CAS. Here's my DT make for The Pencil Case This card is made using the lovely Christmas tree digi on Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun. It really is a blank canvas for you to put your own take on. I used my Lyra pencils and the flicking technique to achieve the texture. For those interested the colours used are...
Tree: 080, 076, 075, 070, 067, 065
Star: 006, 007
Gifts: 021, 024, 026 + white gel pen for polkadots

The polkadot backing paper is also from the collection I matted that onto some contrasting card stock and stuck my coloured digi on flat. I then glittered up a piece of card to make the tree 'bucket' and adhered that, the star and the gifts using foam pads. I then decorated my tree using red, green and gold gemstones.

Fresh Outta the Pan....

....Sweet Gingerbread Man (and woman). I came up with this little gift idea instead of a card. It just involved working within my graphics programme, Resizing, cropping, layering. I then printed them off, folded them in half and added a bit of ribbon from my crafty stash. I bought the mini gingerbread men in the supermarket and transferred them into some 4"x 4" cello bags then stapled the little card toppers on. I just added some gemstones and tied the mini tags on with bakers twine.


A great little idea for school Christmas Fayres!

PPPPPICK up a Penguin

For my Inky Pinky creation today I combined the cute, little penguin digi and one of the tags from Winnie in Winterland. I coloured it up using my Graph'it Markers (9500, 9501, 9502, 9503, 9504, 9505, 9506, 4145, 4101, 1210, 1230, 1250) I also printed off a piece of holly from the same collection (8270, 8280, 8290, 3250, 3290, 5210, 5220) I glazed the berries with glossy accents. The decorative dies used are Grand Decorative Ovals One by Spellbinders.
This was all matted & layered onto an embossed A5 card. I finished off by adding some cream ribbon, a bow & some bling.

Winnie Winterland Fairy

Morning all today I have a pretty Christmas card to share with you using Winnie Winterland Fairy. The backing paper and sentiment are from Winnie Winterland Big Kahuna Bundle.



I printed her out to the size I required and then used my Detailed Scallop to cut her out. She's coloured up using nuvo markers. If you love your colouring too why not pop over and join our Inky Pinkies group on Facebook?

Woven Notebook

I thought long and hard about how I could incorporate paper weaving into my inspiration make this week. I eventually decided I needed to be more organised so made a book for my Christmas card lists. I used the Baked with Love collection and opted for the pre coloured images. I printed the image out 5 times to create my own decoupage, a greeting and two sheets of backing paper which I cut into strips.



I started by placing the green strips down vertically. taking care to just apply glue to the inside of the front cover of the notebook.



Once I'd finished with the green strips. I then weaved the red paper strips horizontally. Gluin at the ends.


Ending up with w woven background.

I then added the sentiment which I had glittered and my layered decoupage to which I had added some gems & sparkle.

I hope you like my project? Please feel free to leave me a comment. I do love to read them.
