Christmas Card


I have decided to start my Christmas cards early this year so I am not so rushed.
Although it is hard to believe that I started this card a week ago!
I thought that this pattern was perfect to go with the cute image.
The pattern is a636 and is available from Ann's Paper Art Webshop
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 821, 3641, 376, 5643.
The cute image is from Lili of the Valley  which I bought already coloured.
I have diecut around the image with Couture Creations Nesting dies and then added some "Waterfall" stickles around the edge.
The little snowman has been lightly dusted with 
"Crystal" Glamour Dust to add a bit of sparkle.
"Happy Christmas" stamp is also from Lili of the Valley which I diecut  with Nellie Snellen MFD055,  then slightly inked around the edge with Distress ink.
In the top corners I have used Starform Christmas stickers.
Spellbinders Boardabilities S5-182 has made the perfect edge along the bottom of the card.
It was fun creating my first Christmas card for 2013.

I would like to enter this card in the LOVT's Ideas to Inspire
 August Challenge "Make it Festive"

Thank-you for coming by and looking.

Card for Lucy


This month at Ann's Paper Art I made my exchange card for Lucy.
Once I started stitching this card I could not put it down until it was complete.
This is a new pattern a676 and is available from 
The Threads are Mettler Polysheen, 1755, 6043.  Scansilk 1840.
Rice beads and small glass beads have also been stitched in the pattern.
Before pricking out the pattern I die cut the circle with AND004 which is in the set of the new Stitching Stencils which are also available from the webshop.
The Spellbinder, Delicate Asters HCD726  looks fantastic in the centre, although I have not used all of the elements.
Leane Creatif corners have been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress inks.
Nellie Snellen metal floral spaces with a small brad have been added to the centre of the flower.
The cardstock is something that I picked up locally.
Gems have also been added.
I enjoyed making this card so very much and I hope that you also like it.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
