Another Christmas Card for Sundays with Santa Facebook Page

I know, I know Im really bad at keeping up my posts here on my No.2 Blog in fact I havent done much better on my No.1 blog especially since I have been recovering from my cataract operation and I have also been keeping a eye on one of my elderly neighbours who hasnt been at all well for over a month and it looks rather bad for the future to, anyway we wont jump the gun until its been confirmed.
Todays card is a card created with the Colour Cloud inks and Phil Martins Snowflakes stamps and also his colours Frosty Sky Blue for the embossing powder and pva glue which was used on the die cuts.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card the white mount has been cut with the pin pricked die from Sue Wilson and then I used several snowflake stamps over the card then I cut a smaller frame that was then inked through the dies to create the frame in which I dropped the sentiment which I had cut from the middle of the frame and a sentiment is also from Phil Martin and stuck in the center.
To finish of I have used two holly diecuts cut with the Sue Wilson die and then embossed with frost sky embossing powder and when placed as you see at the bottom were then topped with the pva glue on the berries, this card is following the "Non Traditional Colours" theme.

First Xmas Card for Sundays with Santa on Facebook

Good Morning Crafters, I was given a card at Christmas very similar to this design and it intrigued so much that I thought I would try the layout myself. The first hurdle was track down the stamps and they turned out to be Hobby Art Stamps and Caio stamps.
I firstly punched out a circle out of card to create the background and with the tree stamp I stamped it across the bottom of it, afterwards I placed the man and his dog at the bottom on the right.
I then drew a faint circle in pencil and with a bare tree stamp also from Caio I stamped it and secondary stamped it around the circle to create a aperture.
To finish of I stamped a sentiment in the bottom left hand corner. I also used a glue pen and glitter to create snow and a bit of sparkle to create a illusion of snow.

A card using a ArtbyMiran image

Good Morning Crafters, its a week since I posted a card here, and this was one I made last week using a image that I coloured before having my cataract operation, as Im having to limit my card creating at the moment, I will so glad to get back to normal in a couple of weeks its so limiting.
Anyway this image is titled "A Gift of Love! and Ive coloured her with my copic pens before cutting her out with a Spellbinders Nestabilite set of dies, and I used a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card the papers are also from ArtbyMiran called "Love" and I have used four of them for the layers on this card and theyve been cut with a Martha Stewart corner and border set of Heart design.
I then cut out the heart border from Marianne dies and the large die was also cut with a Marianne die. The card was then layered up as shown and to finish of I have used a sentiment from the same image set and tied a triple bow and stuck this about it.
To finish of I have used some heart gems in three of the corners.

Crazyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenges - Anything Goes

Good Morning and Happy New Year to you all, and here is the first card for the Crazyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge
And for my Card I have used a image I found on the internet

And I love it, its by "Cute as a Button" and I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used the Sue Wilson dies to cut it out and a larger one for the mount out of blue card. I did stamp Happy New Year on the cup as shown.
The base card is a 6,50"x 6,50" white card and for the papers I have used Sweetshoppe Digi Papers and this set is called "Celebrate" and I picked three papers to go with this time of the year. The first is a red background on a red mount, and the second and third are yellow and orange and these were placed on some blue card that was left and placed at angles as shown and the mounted image to.
To finish of I have used two rolled flowers made from felt and two other flowers which were stuck on with glue on top of punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pay a visit to the Crazyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you will also want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge.
