Sooo Cute!

Hi Crafters,

I had a naughty :o) purchase before Christmas and treated myself to this Crafters Companion stamp and die set. This is the first chance I've had to play with them and here is my sweet card.


Recipe
Gemini Peek-a-Boo-bunny Stamp and Die Set - Crafters Companion
Bunny coloured with Promarkers

On second thoughts I should have taken a photo of the inside of the card, you can see the back view of the bunny peeking over the aperture in the card and it's just as cute as the outside but I didn't think of that until it was too late.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend.
See you soon,

Christmas Card Club Challenge #2 - Holly and or Ivy

Hi Crafters,

We are continuing to create Christmas cards every fortnight in our friendly group and today it was Elizabeth's choice of theme.

HOLLY and/or IVY




As you can see I went with the HOLLY theme :0)

The Sheena Douglas Holly stamp and die that I used on all these cards creates a large holly branch which makes a great embellishment or focal point on your cards or projects. I cut out the holly from cardstock that had previously been inked with distress inks and then used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen in Emerald Green to give them some shimmer.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #555 More Than a Single Word Sentiment
CHNC Every Saturday - #473 ATG/Christmas/Use A Sentiment
Christmas Crafts All Year Round - ATG Christmas/Holiday Related
Sweet Stampin' Christmas - ATG/Add Some Sparkle

Thanks for stopping by today, take a peek at the other makes that my teamies have created by clicking the links found in the CCC tab on my sidebar.

See you again soon,

Well that's the first of many Christmas cards that I intend making this year. I had a little panic on towards the end of November last year despite making cards for the challenge all year, so I have decided to try and make at least one Christmas card a week. Let's see if I can keep it up.
Thanks for popping by today.
