Fairy Wishes SC199

Finally, I've finished a couple cards! I picked up this Fairy set from Michaels by Inkadinkadoo a couple of weeks ago. I've been so bored with my stamps! I thought I would do her in my fav. xmas colours of Vintage Violet and Baja Breeze. I painted platinum and turquoise stickles on the wings and used my new love.. Shimmerz - Angel Wingz all over the watercolour paper. It gives it such a nice depth and shimmer. I really need to learn how to watercolour. It didn't turn out so well. I stamped the snowburst snowflakes and added platinum and the turquoise stickles in dots onto them. I used this weeks SC over at scs for the layout.

Oh to look like this in a little dress!

Christmas Bouquet - Well Sorta

The main image started in my mind as becoming a Christmas flower arrangement. hee hee. I'd say it didn't quite come to fruition as to what I had in mind. I am so in need of new holiday stamps, that I was trying to find something to use with this great pp I picked up at a LSS on the weekend and had nothing, therefore the making of this country looking card. Do you think it looks country? Speaking of which, tomorrow I have to travel up to the sister inlaws up in the boonies or so it seems to a city slicker like me, so I best get back to packing! Thanks for following my dungeon creations.

Oh, more blah blaha... I had challenged myself NOT to use bling on this card. Hard to do, but I didn't add any stickles, gem brads, iridiscent ice etc... Once I put the 3 coloured scalloped nestie circles together, I thought of making it into a ornament. I just bought a cuttlebug folder/ dye cut that had a little ornament top piece to it. Perfect fit to give it that look!

Papers - Vanilla, Dark spring green, medium belguim blue by Worldwin, Kaisercraft - Cheer Christmas Wish and textured red.

100% True Friends

This colour combo came to me when I went into my dungeon last night to make my Christmas cards. I didn't realize at the time, but it's close to the colour combo on scs the other week, but I added soft sky to it. The layout came as I made the pieces. I'm actually happy with a card I made! Yippee! I pulled out a set I haven't used in a long long time that Marvelous Mel gave to me. I also, used some other sets I haven't barely used. I need new stamps, but I'm having a hard time finding stuff I like out there. Saves $$ though! :o)

Papers - Kiwi kiss, Baja breeze, Vanilla, Soft sky
Inks - Baja breeze, soft sky, kiwi kiss, blk stazon

I guess I better start working on those darn cards! I bet I will get distracted once again! lol

Poinsettia Card

I used my first chipboards this week. I sponged them with real red reinker, versamarked all over the little one and added irid. ice, but it wouldn't dry on, so I wiped it off and it left a small amount of glitter. I outlined the bigger one with a versamark pen and added irid. ice. I don't know what I was thinking, but I messed up this card with the river rock corner piece. I wanted it right in the corner, but for some strange reason put it where I did and it was adhered too well. All the time making it to finish it with that blunder. Oh well, it's still one less card to make for this years xmas card list. I love this Anna Griffin PP. It's got such great colours in it that are traditional and elegant.

Traditional Christmas

I thought I'd give a traditonal coloured xmas card a try! I didn't start out with it becoming a present looking card, but that is where I ended up. I added the gold bow to help make it have the present look. I think it worked!! I made another traditional card last night, but I messed up a corner piece by placing it in the wrong place. Ooops!!


Stamps: Tags For All. Papers: Real red, Garden green, Vanilla and Anna Griffin PP. Ink: Real red, garden green and yellow SU markers. Accessories: Gold bow, ribbon and brads.

I better get back to making my simple Christmas cards, or I'll be scrambling at the last minute. :o)

Are you working on yours?
