second christmas card

Oh dear I think I am addicted to making Christmas cards . Lol. I made this one by cutting out bunting to look like icicles and used my copic markers to edge it in blue . I then put white fine glitter on and stamped the letters on each flag. I used a lovely blue paper that I got in a swap over on our face book group The friendly crafters, and I stamped some snow on added glitter to the snow and this is the finished card 

Thank you for stopping by i always love to read your comments, lots of love and hugs.

first Chrissy card of the year

Well i know its early still but i need to start early as i have gained a huge amount of wonderful friends since i started crafting and have a lot of Christmas cards to send out . So here is my first one . 

Now how did I make this? 
Well the first thing I did was to use my Grand nestabilities dies
and my big shot . I also used one of my sizzlets for the holly leaves . I love this sizzlet it cuts out a really nice holly leaf. 
I then drew around my die cut and also used the edge to cut this lovely burgundy edge.
Once I had all the cutting out done I used my lovely stamped image of a snowy white tree .
Once I put the card together I used my smoochy glitter that I won in a magazine about a year ago for the tree and the edge of the card  
I then added a bow made with my bowdabra . I hope you like it.

My red card

Yesterday I was feeling very ill . I had no energy so I went to my craft room to try and fight it and this is what I made.

I used one of my new grand dies that a very good friend sold to me (really cheaply I might add) and then layered it with card stock from my stash cut out some more layers from another set of dies , embossed one of them ,used some jean flowers from my stash. Stamped a sentiment and added a stamp of a lady bird, which i coloured using my copics and walla here is the result . I hope you like it . Thanks for stopping by  . 
Much love and hugs

Book tag

Well this is my first blog on here (apart from my competition of course ) and I made a book mark that I did for a fabulous face book group called Mad crafty giggles and they have a fun daily one word challenge and guess what the word was: book mark . Any way this is how I made it .
As you can see I cut out two strips of card and then a lovely piece of mulberry paper in a contrasting colour . I then cut out a book shape free hand . I put the book on with my glue gun so it doesn't get squooshed  added a rose and some tassel. Then i turned it over and added 
 a corner piece so it will fit on the corner of pages . I hope you like it it is very simple and easy to make .  let me know what you think . i always love to here your comments .
