Simple Christmas

This is the start of my Christmas card box - I hope to do some every month so that it is not such a rush in December.
I have stamped my 2 images with Emboss It clear, and embossed with Detail White EP.
I found a little snippet of silver foil and punched some snowflakes, then added a little turquoise Kindyglitz for a touch of colour

Time for tea!

I thought I had posted this last week, but it was still waiting!
The background is 'tied together' embossing folder, and I trimmed it to be a little smaller than the card base. The stamp is an unknown brand that I have had a number of years. I have trimmed with a couple of snippets from my ever-growing box, and a pale mauve ribbon.

With Love!

This is one of my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps. I used Memento Tuxedo black to stamp with, and stamped the hearts again in red, which I cut out and layered. I slightly tinted the edges and then added a snippet of some pretty red & black lace. The 'danglies' at the bottom are coloured with Smooches and I finished with a peel-off which I tinted to match.

Second post for me tonight!
I recently won this digi image, so thought it was quite appropriate for February!
I have coloured it with my promarkers, and sponged the edge with a red ink pad. The background is made from a piece of striped paper, and a snippet of red, which I embossed with my new 'tied together' embossing folder in my Cuttlebug. I used some narrow spotted ribbon over the join, and also added white dots around the edge of the letters.

Ribbon and Lace

Another delightful baby card using the template from Cardmaking Paradise (link on my sidebar)
I have embossed the bottom half with a scrolls folder in my Cuttlebug, and added colour by sponging with Brilliance Pearlescent Jade. The hood pieces are edged with some left-over lace, and I added a tiny Jade bow.
