Moonflower Digistamps: Lilly Skating

Good morning and Merry Christmas!  Today I am sharing a card made using the new release by Moonflower Digistamps, Lilly Ice Skating.  You can find her in the Moonflower shop here:

I printed the image on Kraft card and coloured her with Polychromos pencils.  I layered her onto red card and patterned papers from the Jingle All The Way pad by First Edition, and embellished with a baker's twine bow and some wooden snowflakes.

You can see soem great work from the other members of the Moonflower design team on the Moonflower blog or the Moonflower Facebook group.

Cardz 4 Guyz: Last Minute Chtistmas

Today's theme at Cardz 4 Guyz is Last Minute Christmas.  I have to say I have been very last minute with my DT card for this one!

I made my card using a digi stamp by Bugaboo, which I coloured with Polychromos pencils.  I layered my coloured image onto patterned papers and red and teal pearlescent card.  I added some ribbon and some die cut snowflakes, then as a final touch I glittered the snowflakes using Stickles glitter glue.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz

Cardz 4 Galz: Snowmen

Good morning.  We have more snowmen this week, this time at Cardz 4 Galz.  As this is Cardz 4 Galz, I wanted to make a more feminine snowman card this time, so I chose shades of pink and purple. 

The main image on my card is a digi stamp by Conie Fong.  I coloured it with Polychromos pencils and added the snowflakes in white gel pen.  I absolutely love the robins in this image.  They're so cute!

I made the background with patterned papers and purple card.  The papers are some Papermania ones that I have left over from my early card making days.  I've been making cards since I was pregnant with my youngest son, so about 13 years.  I would estimate these papers to be about 10 or 11 years old!  Anyway, they were perfect for this card.

I embellished my card with a bow that I made from purple spotty ribbon (it's not as dark as it looks in the photo, but I ran out of natural light), and some die cut snowflakes.  I glittered the snowflakes with glitter glue.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Galz.

Cards 4 Guys: Snowmen

Good morning.  This week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is Snowmen.  I love making snowman cards, so I really enjoyed this.

The lovely stamp I've used is by Woodward and I coloured my snowman with Polychromos pencils.  It does not show up well, but I added a bit of glitter glue to the snowflakes and "25th".  I layered my stamped and coloured image onto red card and patterned papers.  These papers were one of three lovely sets that I got from The Works for £1 each - an absolute bargain as they're nice quality too. 

Finally I added some die cut snowflakes and glittered those as well, and a "Merry Christmas" sentiment.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.
