Three from me today

It's all or nothing with me lately - I'm sure everyone is in the same boat with the Xmas rush. I've not bought a single present yet, best get me skates on!!

I've two cards and a gift tag today. The first card is for two challenges - Mojo Monday (adore Julee's sketches) and Basic Grey which is "Charming".


I've coloured Melinda Christmas Angel from Whiff of Joy with distress inks and H2O's. Melinda is on special offer in the shop just now. I've used Stickles on her fur and wings.

The snowflake is a Cuttlebug cut and emboss die which I have coated with the gorgeous Diamond Dust that the sweet Rach shared with me - I love this stuff so much both cards today have it on lol. The snowflake finding is from Eggstravaganza (link in my sidebar) and the charms are from my stash. Not a very good pic of the charms, the heart has got tangled in the snowflake - serves me right for not checking before photographing!!

The paper is Basic Grey Figgy Pudding which I got from Jill at The Hobby House
The border punch is Martha Stewart Lace Doiley
The flourish dies are Quickutz.


My next offering is for this weeks Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge, which is to make a gift tag (or more - but with time running away from me everyone is getting bought tags, so only one from me for this challenge). I've done it to look like a bauble using a Stampin Up tab punch.

I cut 2 scalloped circles with the largest Nestie cutter in red, cut one large circle out of DCWV Christmas paper, a small oval out of white card which I stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry snowflakes and added Glamour Dust to the snowflakes and a larger red scalloped oval. I coloured Tilda with Prismacolors (which, compared to Distress Inks is pants I think.)

My last card is for Our Creative Corner which is a sketch and Dutch Dare which is to use scallops on the card.
I've coloured Willow with Lantern from Whiff of Joy with Prismacolors (still not happy with the shading). Willow is also on special offer in the shop.
The papers are Daisy D's
The Noel is a Sizzlits die
The snowflake is as before, Cuttlebug coated with Diamond Dust from Rach, the gold finding is from Eggstravaganza.

Thanks for looking,

  24. Your work is so beautiful! I didn't know that you could use distress inks to colour with, although I guess it makes sense. it creates a winderful effect. Now there's food for thought! LOL! Love that Tilda, she is darling!
