Sweet Sketch Wednesday#86

This is my entry for Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week. There sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps who have some really cute images, so I thought it would be fitting to try and have my first go with a Digi Stamp so I downloaded their weekly freebie and had a go. I was actually surprised that my printer ink worked for this, but happy because it opens some more creative doors.

I used Fancy Pants papers and coloured the image with Copics.The border Punch is Martha Stewart.

Well the weekend is over,have a great week-Hugs Tania

Paper take weekly Clallenge Sketch #52

I really like the sketch this week over at Paper Take Weekly Challenge The DT also came up with some really inspiring ideas check it out.

For this card I wanted the Butterfly paper to be a focal point as well as the image so I layered it behind this cute little Tilda and added some glitter to it. The scallop layer is done using a Martha Stewart Border Punch and I really like the feel this little piece of lace adds. The Sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for looking Have a great weekend-Hugs Tania

Quick Reindeer Card

Another Quickie, I used a Imaganinisce Stamp for the image and unfortunately can't find any trace of the paper that I used. I did spice up the paper a little bit with glitter and the image is stamped on off white paper a first for me. The sentiment stamp is so old that the company name has worn off of it but I like the Old fashioned feel it gives the card.

Lacy Magnolia card

This has to be the laciest card I've ever made. I raided my lace stash box and found some perfect odds and ends. I also used my MS Snowflake border punch angled across the Bo Bunny Midnight Frost Paper. This magnolia was a lot of work to colour But I love the details, I added flocking to the trim on her coat. The edges have twinklets on them for a frosty effect, yes I love Twinklets!

Have a great Day, Hugs Tania

Elegant Snowflake Card

I'm entering this for this weeks Christmas card challenge #8 which is no colouring, seems appropriate as it really has no colour at all. Make sure you check out what the dt has done they have some neat ideas!

For this card I used the New Large Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch. You may have noticed that I love Snowflakes so you can imagine how happy I was to find this one at Michaels.

I wanted to make something simple yet elegant to give to people that aren't really into the cutesy cards. I think this does the trick and it was pretty quick too. I used a nesty to cut out the oval and a cuttle bug folder to emboss the paper added some twinklets and a bead cap and voila elegant Christmas card!

Simply Mimi

These next two cards used the same design so I thought that I would post them together they both use an image from PB Mimi's Christmas set and some word Stamps from SU. I did similar cards last year using different images and these cards are just great when you're in a hurry.The snowflake punch is from Martha Stewart and the paper was embossed with a Cuddle Bug folder.

Thanks for stopping by, Hugs Tania

PS am really enjoying catching up in blog land!

I'm coming out of Winter Hybernation

First off I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

Well the Christmas frenzy is long over and the frantic rush to get year end work done at work is done.So I finally have a little bit more time to concentrate on fun persuits, like blogging and crafting. I've also been trying to move my craft area so that of course takes some time, I thought I would show you over the next week the Christmas cards I missed posting before Christmas.

This was my try at a masculine Christmas card using a Saturday Sketchers design, for a special Uncle of ours. I have to admit it wasn't one of my favourite cards this season but it really wouldn't have been fitting to send him a lacey Magnolia card! I do love the flocking on the bears though and there wasn't much colouring so it was a quick card to make a bonus when your rushing to get things done.

Have a great weekend-Tania
