A Circle Shaped Card at Incy Wincy

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is to create a circle shaped cardand we have a great sponsor for you this week who are offering a great prize of  $16.00 to spend in their shop.
I have used this fab image from them called Elves at Work coloured with promarkers and cut with my nesties. The papers I think are MME and I created the scallopped edge with a marianne doily which I chopped up and stuck around the edge of my circle.

Here's some bag charms that I made for Shannon's friends for Christmas hopefully they will have recieved them by the time this post goes live and like them. I've used some beads and charms from my stash added some chain and the charm pins. I'm really pleased with the way they turned out as I hadn't really tried anything like this before.

Another couple of cards using this cute image Eggbert from Bugaboo stamps. I have coloured him with promarkers and used glamour dust for the snow.
The green papers on the first card are from Dovecrafts Let It Snow pad and the papers on the second card are from a Kars pad.
Both cards are the same layout, the white fram is a marinne die cut, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.

5 Cards The Same But Different!

Ok before we start let me say sorry this post is rather picture heavy, 5 cards all using the same layout, so I will keep this bit short and just give you the basic details.
The penguin with a christmas tree image is from Di's Digi's, the second penguin and eggbert are from Bugaboo, all have been coloured with promarkers. All the glitter bits are glamour dust. I have used my swiss dots and snowflake embossing folders for the backgrounds. The snowflake border is punched with a woodware border punch. The large snowflake is a sissix die and the smaller one is a woodware punch and all are held together with a brad from my stash. The sentiments are from Craftwork Cards. I have inked all the edges with either gold or silver ink just to pull each card together.

Christmas Robins

This image was a freebie over at Spyders Corner a couple of weeks ago, it did have a moon behind them but I cut that off when I cut the image out. (hope you don't mind Lynn) I have coloured the image with promarkers and used glamour dust to make it sparkle. I believe the papers might be MME but I'm not 100%. The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley one stamped direct on to some cream card with gold ink.

Christmas + Brads at Incy Wincy

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is Christmas + brads and we are sponsored by Nicecrane who have provided images for the DT to use.
I have coloured my image with promarkers and flexmarkers, I've added some sparkle with a Sakura stardust pen and used glossy accents on the clock face. I've used the name of the image as the sentiment which is held into place with 2 small brads. I tried to keep the rest of the card simple to show the image off, just some squares of green card doen the side and some gorgeous gold ribbon.

White & Silver

I decided to speed up the process of making christmas cards by making several of the same design at the same time, I'm not very good at batch making cards as I get bored very quickly so I have changed details such as the colours, or images. Here's 2 of the cards I made, both the same layout and images just that I ran out of mirror card so had to use sparkly silver film under the second one.

The image is from Fred She Said and is coloured with promarkers. I added white flock to the trims on her hat and coat. Swiss dots and a snowflake embossing folder have been used on the circles behind the image and the sentiments are from Craftwork Cards.

Non Traditional Colours at Incy Wincy

 This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is non traditional colours so no Greens,Reds or Golds.

We are sponsored by Prairie Fairy who have some great images, I have used a snowman image from them for my cards.
 I could decide which colour to do my card so I did 2 ( plus I'm so far behind I need to be making twice as many as I can and seem to spend so long deciding on colours and a layout at the moment that I never get anything done.)

 The images are coloured with pro markers and then I've added sparkle with some glamour dust. The papers are from a pack that I bought last year and are embossed and glittered not that it shows in the photo.

The snowflakes are punched out of white glitter card with a tiny snowflake punched form the DP and a gem added to the centre.

The sentiment is from Craftwork cards and the ribbon is from my local fabric shop coloured to match with pro markers.
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Pastel Christmas
Make My Monday - Glitter
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes + Glitter
