Winter Woods Emboss Resist Christmas Card

Hello :-)
I'm here today with a card that has been heat embossed  to the max! I think the Winter Woods bundle is the set I've used most this festive period - and please be prepared for quite a few more cards with this set coming soon ;-) - it's super versatile for both traditional colours and more modern cards and I can see me using it for mens cards throughout the year too.
But back to today's make. I went with a cool navy, white and silver colour combo for this card, let's see...
 I started by stamping and heat embossing in white, two lots of the cluster of trees on white card. Then, using a sponge brayer (super fun and easy too!) I added the navy ink over the top. I then splattered the whole piece with white shimmer paint, (so happy that's back)
 After brushing the edges directly with my Versamark ink pad and heat embossing in silver, to get this frosted window effect, I added some silver thread and a plain, uninked "Festive Farmhouse Elements" sentiment.
 This card is so lovely in real life so I do hope some of that is captured in these pictures?
 So, that's all from me for today, I'm hoping to have more cards photographed and to share with you very, very soon :-D
'Till then, Happy crafting!

So Santa with a Surfboard

Hello!
 I'm back from our bi-annual trip to On Stage. This time we were in Birmingham and it was a great venue (imo) and as usual it was an awesome time! Lots of catching up with teammates and friends from all over the country (and world!), news about upcoming products, the new Spring/Summer catalogue, Sale-a-Bration (TIP: awesome goodies to watch out for this year ;-)), free stamps and stampin' up goodies and so much more! If you have ever even considered joining SU! then just getting to go to On Stage makes it worth it :-)
Anyway we are still on the Christmas catalogue right now but there is the "only while stocks last" warning been issued so if you have had your eye on something then please do get it asap.
I love this little Santa with a surfboard, which I coloured with my blends, from the So Santa stamp set - and I totally know who I'm sending it to, too...
 I went with a vibrant Melon Mambo with Navy colour combo to layer this card. I would so love to be sat on a beach somewhere this Christmas, *sigh* ah well...
 I know not a lot of people in the UK would perhaps think this is not a set for them because of this image but the others in the set include a chef Santa and Santa on a Scooter. I think they are adorable too, such cute little faces.
 So how about using this image for a friend who is going on holiday this Christmas or someone who lives abroad maybe? Who would you send this card to?
 Right, that's all from me for today, I hope you enjoyed today's card?
I'll be back tomorrow with another make, 'till then,
Happy Stampin'

So Santa on a Scooter!

Hello there and happy Saturday to you!
I have a super cute card to share with you today using the So Santa stamp set.
I coloured this Santa on a scooter image with my Blends, I really love the images in this set - they're just something a little different for Christmas, don't you think? Let's see...
 I die cut the image after colouring and added it over a crumb cake layer, corrugated using the dynamic embossing folder.
 I stamped the sentiment and trimmed around it, tearing at the right hand side for a change.
 Wrap with a little Mossy Meadow twine and layer onto Blushing Bride card base with a few rhinestones to finish!
 So, that's it from me for today, I have one more card with this set so I'll hop on and share that with you tomorrow :-)
Thanks so much for looking today!
 Have a great Saturday...

Thank you cards with the Lots of Happy Card Kit for ICC

Hello and welcome to a new challenge with Inspire. Create Challenges!
 Can you believe it's challenge #30 already?? So, this weeks challenge is to use the theme "Thankful"
Unfortunately, for some inexplicable reason blogger won't let me add the image for this challenge :-(
But, I do have the cards I made :-) So I wanted to use the very lovely "Lots of Happy" card kit for this challenge and I just loved the ease of a kit and it's perfect for this challenge. I had coloured some of the flowers while I was away this summer, using the watercolour pencils in the kit but I also had a go with my blends for some too, lets have a look at the finished cards together first shall we...
For this card I used the pencils...
Love the die cut vellum leaves which are included in the kit. The only thing I added was a few clear sequins from my stash.
This image was from this past years Sale-a-Bration (now retired) so it's good to still be able to get it in this kit!
This was also coloured with watercolour pencils, but from the watercolour pencil set available separately.
And finally for today this adorable, teeny-tiny card!
Now this image was coloured with my blends and you can see it gives a totally different vibrancy to the flowers!
So, which style of colouring are you loving right now? I think it depends on the overall effect you are trying to achieve, soft and whimsical or bold and vibrant? Or both, of course. Which is what I  choose ;-)
To see the rest of the DT's fabulous "Thankful" themed creations head over to the challenge blog HERE, I promise you'll be glad you did!
And don't forget to share your amazingly thankful creations with us too :-)
