Two cards today

Guess who's been playing all weekend lol, managed to get five cards made this weekend (a miracle for me as I can usually only get one card made in a day).
pink-gem-snowman-1
The first card is for Friday Sketchers, I have used one of my new DT stamps from Pink Gem Designs. I also wanted to use some of the DCWV papers I got in my last DT kit from Create4Fun - it's the Old World stack - I think it's great for Crimbo cards too. Love this turquoise.  I used some tiny flat-backed crystals for the flower centres on her hat and scarf.
ping-gem-snowman-2
I used a MSE stamp for the sentiment on the inside, it's a bit big for the square but it's stopping there now.
pink-gem-snowman-3
A close up of the acetate snowflake that I have applied Twinklets (diamond dust) to. Love this stuff!!
pink-gem-snowman-4
Recipe:
Stamps: Funky Snowgirl from Pink Gem, sentiment is MSE from Horseshoe Crafts (I think)
Paper: DCWV Old World stack from Create4Fun
Tools: Nestibilities, Cuttlebug snowflake die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Twinklets, various MS snowflake punches, Punch Bunch small snowflake punch
Embellies: Brads, spacers, chain, jump rings and charm from The Hobby House, ribbon and bling from stash

motivet-baseball-top
My second card I made following a sketch and can I remember which sketch?? Can I heck as like *rolls eyes*!! I tell you I am losing the plot big time - if I don't write everything down, I've had it - this old worn out brain cannot cope lol. So, whilst hunting for the link to the sketch I used I realised the card would fit Creative Card Crew's challenge which is ribbons.
motivet--baseball-1
I've used another new DT stamp, little Baseball Dexter from Motivet, I have popped the baseball up on foam to lift it off the card.

The inside is pretty plain, I used one of Motivet's fab sentiments.
motivet-baseball-3
How CUTE is this baseball cap - love it!!  Sorry about the blurred pic, divvie here focussed on the ribbon instead of the charm *rolls eyes* again!!
motivet-baseball-2

Recipe:
Stamps: Baseball Dexter and sentiment from Motivet
Papers: Basic Grey
Tools: Nestibilities and Martha Stewart Double Dot border punch from The Hobby House
Embellies: Buttons (from a huge grab bag from The Hobby House), Baseball cap charm, chain and jump rings from The Hobby House

  3. Beautiful cards Bev. I love the christmas card. The colours and image are fab as is your snowflake. I loved seing your demo of this in Doncaster and me & my mum both bought pots of the twinklets. I just need to get a snowflake die now as i have discovered punches will not go through acetate! Have a great week!

  12. Both cards are adorable Bev, but I really love the snowman one! I like how you use the border punches around the card and on the insides. Just when I think I have all the border punches I could want, you use another one I don't have! You are such an enabler:)) Martha Stewart should be paying you a commission!!! Truly though, thank you so much for always posting the insides of your cards. I get so much inspiration from seeing them and it's helped me be much more creative with my own cards.
