Washi Tape Xmas card

I got this idea from Alisa Tilsner another Stampin' Up demonstrator.
I used some retired and current washi tape.
I used the Star Framelits and cut out some silver and gold card stock.
I punched a little star from the glimmer paper.
I think they look quite effective.

Deck the Halls

Another KISS card.
Using up retired DSP and a stamp from my old stash.
Love my EF how they give texture to a card.
Coloured with blendabilities and a bit of sponging.
Finished off with some cherry cobbler dazzling details.
Another quick 10 cards on the weekend.

Washi Tape card

Using the KISS principle I made 10 of these cards fairy quickly on the weekend.
I love the Filigree Frame EF. Covered a piece of cardstock with washi tape (which I seem to collect).
I then layered it on some cherry cobbler card, embellished with some ribbon and a retired greeting.
10 quick cards. Done.

Shutter screen card we made

Using the confetti star border punch for the top of the card. We stamped Lovely as a Tree and Endless Wishes snowflakes. We decorated the trees and the centre of the snowflakes with dazzling details.

Card making with friends

Once a month I get together with friends for a Cardmaking day.
We all have a turn of hosting the day and designing the cards we make.
These are 2 of the cards we made last week.
It's great to get ideas from others and to do different styles, sometimes out of your comfort zone.
It's always a lovely day.

It's all about how much you want to decorate them.

Partridge in a Pear Tree

I love this set, even though I don't own it.
At my last team meeting we all had a play with sets we hadn't bought from the Holiday catalogue.
This is a great stamp image to colour.
I've used my SU markers here, some washi tape (I seem to have a real problem with washi tape, I collect it but rarely use it, even though I love it!). I've used some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the little cherries on the tree. The large dot EF has a nice textured effect too.

So many candles

My niece turns 25 today! I think she feels she is getting old!
I thought this card still had a childish feel to it.
