Choosing my top Favourite five Christmas cards this year wasn't a difficult task seeing as I only made 7 different designs. I had to keep it simple as I had busy last few months and then had surgery two weeks ago, I have just managed to sit at the computer for a short time and have yet to be able to get any stamping done. Perhaps this week.
The oval gate fold I love this design and it only takes alittle more effort that a usual folded card for a stunning look.
This card was my first venture with sewing machine on my card.
My first use of the hero arts stamp and die sets works perfectly with Paper Pretties image
Gotta love those stampabilites bunnies
Certainly can't go pass Penny Black critters for a favoutie card.
I think cute cards were definitely the theme for 2011
I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas
Today's card is for my Darling Baby girl who turns 21 today, Kait put in her request a pop up card, so I had to put on my thinking cap. While I was thinking my Friend Frances posted a waving pop up on her blog and the timing was just perfect.
I thought this MFT stamp would work just great, stamped the image and paper pieced the dress using copics for the shading. Since I wasn't posting this card I wanted to add flowers and I guess I went alittle crazy it just kept growing.
As you can see the flowers on the inside is the reason for the ones on the front. It is great the way they just pop up when you open the card. This Mft stamp set was the one I was going to originally use, I was gald to be able to put it in there too. I coloured the image and cut it out and then used plaid glass finish on the wine glass.
This is another veiw of the opened card with the waving flowers.
Stamps: My Favorite things " A'la mode sets"

This card was made using two different penny black images to create a scene and the text is from paper pretties.I coloured it with copic pens, matted, sponged and destressed the edges for a shabby chic look. The snowflakes were made using a Martha stewart punch.
I have enterd this card into the Bommerang Stampers List COTM
Todays card is something different from xmas cards for a change, but I really need to get back to Christmas cards as I am so far behind. This card was requested by my daughter for a friend who has moved into a new house.
I just love these cute critters from Penny Black, they seem to suit any occasion. My sketch layout out is from splitcoast stampers SCS361. The text was computer generated and that along with the image were cut out with nestabilities, the edges were then sponged for a softer effect. Pearls and gems were added for some bling.
