Little Angels

I haven't made any cards today, I've been looking after my gorgeous Grandson, I did try and get him making Christmas cards with me but, he has his own ideas and he made dinosaur cards instead!

This is a quick card I made last week

Sorry about the photo, I took it in the evening and the light is bad!
The main image is a Humphries Christmas Stamp, I stamped it onto neenah card, and backed it onto silver mirri.  I did the same with the sentiment, backed with one of the backing papers from one of the Humphries Christmas CD's (sorry not sure which one). The flowers and card candy is from my stash.

Thanks for looking

A Christmas Card

This image is not something I would normally use to colour, but I'm happy with how this turned out!

The stamp was a freebie from one of my card making magazines from last year,  I coloured him in using spectrum noirs, I thought the image looked a bit stark so I used some distress ink to soften it, and matted him onto mat gold card.  I backed the rest with one of my favourite  papers from one of the Humphrey's Christmas Cd's, I've used in on a few of my Christmas Cards in various colours. Just to finish it off I used a stamped greeting and a couple of pieces of Card Candy in green and gold.
 Thanks for looking

Purple Christmas Card

Just thought I'd show you my latest Christmas Card.  I decided I'd go for something a bit less traditional this time.

The stamp is a digi stamp, and I coloured him with spectrum noirs.  The backing paper is from one of the Humphrey Christmas Cd's.  I love all the papers from both Cd's and I've used them with most of the cards I've made so far. The card is finished of with a snowflake die cut.

Thanks for looking.

Flower Fairy Tea Light Card

I've had a little play!  I had made the smaller tea light cards, but I thought I'd have a go at the larger ones.
I made this for a friends birthday, and although you can't really see from the photo I've used the large tea lights and printed 4 Flower Fairy greeting circles onto tissue paper and used a heat gun to attach them to the candles.
The card is made from 3 sheets of Centura Pearl card and backed with lilac and green papers from one of my cd's (can't remember which sorry!). The fairy is from the Fairyopolis Spring and Summer cd.

Thanks for looking
