Christmas candle

Here is a lovely glass bowl that I have decorated with blue vinyl snowflakes (cut on my cameo),  holly leaves punched from a snippet of green card, and  edged with a gold pen, and red gems for the berries. I have placed a battery operated tea light in it.

Arty reindeer!

The lovely Sara at Cardmaking Paradise (link on my sidebar) designed this cute reindeer, so I just had to make it for my grandchildren. I have cut the base  in a textured brown card, and used some DP for the top layer which I made a little smaller than the base, and sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain DI. I coloured his nose with a red copic, then added some Dimensional Magic to make it nice and shiny. A silver bow around his neck, and some Wink of Stella on his antlers are the finishing touches.

Fairy with wings

I was delighted to be asked by Mrs A to be her guest designer for the month of December.
I have chosen to make a 'fairy with wings' card.
The background is from a lovely DP pad by The Scrap Cake, called 'One Moment in Time'
I then stamped the images from the set in black and the stars in the top corner in silver. I stamped the wings again on some pink vellum, and attached them so they stood off the card a little. I finished off with some pink "KindyGlitz" as though she is scattering fairy dust over the flowers. I rounded the corners and layered onto a black card.
