I'm dreaming of a white christmas

 I made this quick christmas card last night, I've used the free christmas tree embossing folder that came with this months Creativity Magazine on some white card. I turned itover to the debossed side and added some gems and a star to the image, then went over it with blue shimmery chalk to create a subtle shimmer. This is then mounted on some foam pads onto a card blank which has been embossed with the swiss dots folder, I then added some white organza ribbon between 2  embossed lines. A couple of gems in the top corner and its finished.

This week I have used Ruperts Bathtime for my Stamping Dragon project I thought this was the perfect image to use on a gift box for some bathbombs so I set about making this little box I followed the instructions here. It was so simple and quick to make, I used a sheet of A4 card printed with Pink Petticoat ribbons in duck egg blue.

I've coloured the image with promarkers adding 3d gloss to the little duckie and some picket fence distress stickles for the bubbles.

We have something exciting coming up for you at Stampin with the Dragon starting on the 1st October we are going to have our own forum and we will be looking out for Spotlight designers to be in with a chance you will need to use one of Stamping Dragons images and showcase it on your blog, enter it into challenges and if one of us spots it you will be in the running for spotlight designer.

Clean & Simple card

Not quite sure where the weekend went I certainly never got half of what I planned to do done so last night I had to make a quick card for today, this is what I came up with. I bought a fab little set of stamps from Glittermum I thought these would be perfect for quick cards, I used one on this card.

I have coloured him with promarkers and the mounted him on some green basic grey paper and then added a piece of co-ordinating paper from the Oliver stack to the card front, adding just a pice of rik rak and some card candy to it. I have stamped the happy birthday directly onto the card blank.

Stampin with the Dragon Black, White and one other colour

This time at Stampin with the Dragon we have a fantastic challenge for you, we want you to use Black & White on your card  with one other colour. We are sponsered by the fab Toucan Scraps who was kind enough to give the DT an image each to work with and who is offering a great prize for the winner of 6 digi papers of the winners choice.
I choose Wishing Well as my image, the DP is from Funky Fairies who sadly are no more.

The flower is madefrom scalloped circles which have been cut into flower shapes and finished with buttons and paper string. Ribbon is from my stash as is the sentiment.

The butterflies are punched with my embossing punch from the DP and some vellum, and I've stuck some small gems down the body and some glitter on the embossed parts.
Finally I finished the card off with glitter around the edges of the flower and the scalloped circle around the image. Don't forget to stop by and check out the other DT cards as they are all fab.

A Very Pink Christmas Card

Well I think this is the pinkest christmas card I have ever made but I like it, I bought this fab image from Heather Ellis after seeing Rainmac use some of her images. The papers are from Dovecraft Christmas Fancy all mounted on silver mirri card. I punched the border from the paper with my woodware punch and then added a tiny gem to the centre of the snowflake.

I have coloured the image using promarkers, adding glamour dust to the fur on her boots and hat. The snow is done with a snow writer. I added some 3d gloss to her buttons and the heart on her coat.

This snowflake is cut with a sizzix die and then I have used a embossing tool to draw lines onto it as it looked a bit blank. The pearl star is from the range andwas only a £1 for a sheet full of pearls in different shapes.

The sentiment is from craft work cards and is mounted on to some silver mirri card that has been embossed with my snowflake folder.

I found this fab image in my box of christmas stuff not sure who sent it to me so t
hanks to who ever it was. It's such a fab image I didn't want to colour it so have just gone over the lines with my sakura glitter pen to make it sparkle, it doesn't show up very well in the photo.

The papers are a free download from Bearly Mine Designs, I had added a glittery border again with the sakura pen. The gold card has been embossed in the cuttlebug. I've added some ribbon to the bottom, I think it may have looked better with thicker ribbon now and a small wooden reindeer that has been glittered with the sakura pen.
