Indian Lady in Pink Card

This is something a little bit different for me.

It is a Debbi Moore design from one of her craft CD's.  I love the detail in the ladies dress.

I kept this reasonably simple, just a couple of layers cut with my spellbinder frames.
Also used Marianne swirl and butterfly die for the embellishment.

Subtle and simple :D

Cute Bears Christmas Card

I got a set of free bear christmas 3D sheets with a craft mag. I used one to make this simple card

I rarely do cute and cuddly cards, as I don't really have much in my stash to cover that theme.
But I do like this design, its ever so sweet.

Will have to see if I can get to use the rest of the sheets this year.

Winter Lady Christmas Card

I used another of my Mocha artwork designs to make this card.

I love all the detail in this image, and it works well as a pyrimid 3D design

I recently got a spellbinder M - Embossing panel. The double sided ones.

I used the half moon pattern on this card, embossing both the cream layer and the rush mirror layer.

I found this embossing panel difficult to use as one side doesn't emboss very well. I did wonder how it could possibly work with two different patterns embedded into one panel.  Its a shame as I do like the patterns available in the range.

Black and White Cat Christmas Card

I used a Glynn Williams design from a Joanna Sheen craft CD
This is still one of my favourite CD's, I love the artwork.
 Very traditional looking, even if it isn't specifically christmas themed.

I love the cat, my Mam had a cat that looked a lot like this when I was little.

I used a Marrianne bauble cutting die for the bell, which swings on the hoops.

Poinsettia Christmas Lady Card

I have a selection of Mocha artwork, that I have yet to use. I am still working on a making the designs into 3D sheets.

This one I got sorted recently and was finally able to make it up into a card. I love this Art Nouvue theme.
Lovely colours and detail in this artwork too, and despite it being old, doesn't look dated.

I highlighted the red in the design with the papers and layering and bow

I used a Cheery Lynn, holly die and Marrianne  poinsettia die to make the embellishment, cutting out in vellum.

Blue Victorian Lady Christmas Cards

I think this design from the Victorian Christmas craft CD by Debbi Moore is my favourite.
Strange how the colour can made such a big difference. I've used the Red version of this, but this blue one I feel is more strike.

I used a Marriane border cutting die, a Provocraft snowflake cutting die, and Cheery Lynn holly cutting die. To make the various embellishments.

I stuck to blue and white too, with colouring , as much as possible.

This card was made with a larger topper, that had a slighly different background.

I liked the larger version, you get to see more detail in the ladies outfit.

I used a X Cut border cutting die and again stuck to cream, white and blue - as much as possible - for this card.

Stunning artwork, which I have very much enjoyed working with.

Fan Victorian Christmas Lady Card

This is another design from the Victorian Christmas Craft CD by Debbi Moore
I am so enjoying working with this stunning artwork

Just love the fan, the detail in the dress and fan is wonderfull.

I made the embellishment with the Memory Box holly cutting die and used a Provocraft snowflake die too.

Just a few colours in this card, red, green and gold. Traditional festive colours.

Black Dress Victorian Lady Christmas Card

This is a design from the Victorian Christmas craft CD by Debbi Moore

I love the detail in the dress, so elegant. I'd love to wear an outfit like this :D

I used one of my embossing panels to add detail to the gold layer.  But other than a bow, I have added little else to this card. 

Touch of class :D

Christmas Snow Rabbits Card

I was watching Autumn Watch on TV this week and loved seeing the wildlife in Scotland.
It inspired me to make this festive rabbit card.

The design is from the Festive Furry Squeeze Card craft cd. Im slowly getting through all the stunning designs on the CD

Wouldnt it just be a treat to see these in your garden at winter

11 November 2012

Christmas Horses Card

I made this card using a Thomas Kinkade design from a Joanna Sheen craft CD

A lot of the designs on the CD are very detailed, so work best as prymid 3D designs.

This is first time I have used this image. I love the house and the detail of the woods behind it. Which of course just begged for glitter.

I used the Cheery Lynn holly cutting die to make the simple embellishment.
Stayed with the blue tones thoroughout the card too, with a touch of silver

Red Victorian Lady Christmas Card

This card was made with a vintage, victorian lady design from the Victorian Christmas Craft CD by Debbi Moore

I decided to use a lot of red on this card. And quite like the contrast of the topper from the rest layering. Really made it stand out for me.

Lovely artwork, just nice detail, especially in the background behind the lady.
And of course I love using elegant lady design. I have made a few cards with the stunning designs from this CD

I'm entering this card into the My Time to Craft Challenge-196-vintage

Snowy Owl Christmas Card

My love of wildlife inspired me to make this card.
This is a design from a Debbi Moore craft CD.
I didnt get chance to use it last year, which was a shame.

I love owls, they are such pretty birds.

This design is so cool and chrisp too for a winter card.

I used my Provocraft snowflake cutting die to make the embellishments.

Elegant Christmas Fairy Cards

The fairy artwork by Debbi Moore is stunning and I just had to use more of the characters.

The lilac holly fairy is so nice, love the pose on this one.

I used a Spellbinder border cutting die on the glitter panel with a simple piece of ribbon.

There is glitter on the holly and berries. 

The shape of the topper was a problem for me as I dont have any boards or cutting frames in that shape

I love this blue rose fairy from Debbi Moore's fairy collection

It could be a festive card or a birthday card, you could get away using it for any occasion really

The roses are so detailed and begged for glitter

I used a Marriane bauble cutting dies to make the embellishment











The red rose fairy from Debbi Moore's collection is also lovely and could be used for any theme. I think this one though lends itself more to christmas

I used traditional papers with this one, and cut out the pattern with a Spellbinder border die.

The embellishment was made with a Cheery Lynn holly die and ribbon.



With these cards I tried using less colours again, so mostly sticking to the main colour in the topper design and quite like the affect.

Green Christmas Fairies

I have some stunning artwork from Debbi Moore. Her festive fairy range.

So decided to have some fun and make a few cards with characters.

This one is kinda sassy, love the detail on her dress and hair.

I used glitter card to make the embellishments, cutting them out with my Provocraft snowflake die and Holly Vine Memory Box die.
A green pearl to finish that embellishment off, love the affect

Fairies are probably my favourite fantasy character. Well apart from Dragons. I have a lovely fairy tattoo on my arm, though she isnt as pretty as this lovely design
Again another character by Debbi Moore.  I used a 3D sheet for this card.

I made the embellishment with a Holly Corner die by Cheery Lynn. I havent had it very long, so not had much chance to use the pretty die this year on my cards

I entered these two cards into the - Craftybloggersnetwork- challenge-no-5

Dreaming of Christmas Lady Card

I like to use magical, fantastical designs and this is definately one of those.

Another Joanna Sheen craft CD, design.  Love the detail in this, a lady dreaming of a traditional christmas.
The detail in this image is stunning. You see so much when you look into it.

Had fun with the embellishments too, used Marianne swirl and snowflake punch. As well as a glittery tree topper I had in my stash.  

I have always liked the traditional christmas, but this is both traditional and modern.
