Christmas Angel

Christmas ... only 24 days away and this is the first card I have made. So I am behind as always then, nice to know nothing changes!! Haha!

I have made this card using the very cute CC Designs Christmas Angel, I have coloured her in using Copics, adding glitter to her wings with my Spica pen. I have then cut her out and added to the base with 3D foam pads. The base is made by running a piece of Bazzill Tropical CS through my Cuttlebug using the Snowflakes Embossing Folder. I have then added a strip of Bo Bunny Winter Joy paper accross the bottom and and wrapped around with organza ribbon and Scrappers Floss; this has all been added to a Craftwork Cards card blank. Greeting stamped from the CC Designs Amy R Merry & Bright set and punched out using a Stampin' Up oval punch (from the lovely Jules) and pearls added to the panel. A MFT Die-namic snowflake has been cut using Bazzill Bling CS and added with a MME button.

STAMPS: CC Designs. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics, Bazzill Bling, Bo Bunny. ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder, My Favourite Things Die-namics Let It Snowflake, Stampin' Up! oval punch, My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow button, Organza ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Karen Foster Scrappers Floss, The Hobby House pearls, Copic At You Spica Pen, Copic Markers.

I hope you are all well and keeping warm where you are, we have no snow down here yet but I am sure it is on it's way!

Cupcake Belle

This week I have been inspired by the great work of Alice's {Little} Wonderland and after I saw this card I had to CASE it! So I have used the really cute CC Designs Cupcake Belle from the Fairytales Collection and coloured with Copics. I have cut her out and added her to a Nestabilities Label Fourteen layer. This has been airbrushed using the Copic Airbrush system and layered with Bazzill Hershey cardstock and added to the base with 3d foam pads. The base is more Hershey CS layered on to a white card balnk followed by layers of MME Lost & Found Tapestry paper and then a layer from the KaiserCraft Lilac Avenue Collection. I have then made another layer with the Nestabilities die and added the greeting from the Wild Rose Studio Cute Greetings set. I have then made little flowers using the MFT Die-Namics Rolled Flower die (I have to say this is fab! so easy to use) and cut out leaves using the Martha Stewart Frond Branch punch and added pearls and a little ribbon to finish!

Stamps: CC Designs, Wild Rose Studio. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Anita's, Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics, My Minds Eye, KaiserCraft. ACCESSORIES: Nestabililties Dies, My Favourite Things Die-Namics, Martha Stewart punch, The Hobby House pearls, organza ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Copic Markers & Airbrush System.
