Joy to the World

My inspiration this week came from the post by Wanda Hentges on the Paper Artsy blog.
I have used a credit card to scrape the 3 shades of paint onto my paper, and used the edge to add some lines.
The holly flourish is stamped and embossed, as is the message, and the 2 lines. I have added some kindy glitz to the lines, and popped in some berries with a red copic. I would like to enter this at the September challenge at Paper Artsy, and also at ABC Christmas challenge for 'something festive'

Wedding Season!

This is a lovely stamp from LOTV, which I have stamped 3 times so that I could layer the dress and then the flowers.  I used a die to make a frame around the image and then layered onto spotty paper, rounded the corners and adhered to a plain white card.
Pan Pastels - frame it
Sweet Stamps - wedding
Divas by design - anything goes
Pixie's Playground - I used snippets to stamp on

      Have a great weekend, and thanks for looking.

Another one for Christmas

Yeah!! So pleased to see Cuttlebugmania is back with their challenges.
I have used a Christmas folder, and a pretty blue Basil card (it shows up on here as purple though!). I have sanded it back a little to show the design, and coloured in the two doves, and also used "Wink of Stella" clear on them. I edged the piece lightly with silver ink and then layered onto white card after wrapping with silver thread.
Cuttlebugmania - embossing
Southern Girls - winter blues
Lets Craft & Create - anything goes

This week's card is made with a beautiful image from Chocolate Baroque. Their challenge was to use the colours tan, brown, blue, and white.
I stamped the image on a snippet of white and tore around it and edged with walnut stain DI. The blue background was painted with Fresco paints and the word stamped and embossed with detail white ep. The flowers were coloured with copics and promarkers
