K for Kiss

My second post for tonight is for the new ABC Christmas Challenge. Our theme for this challenge is
"K for Kiss"
Use a sentiment with "kiss" included or an image of  "kissing". 

For my card I have used this cute Deer Duo image from Bugaboo Stamps. It has been coloured using some fun bright colours to pair with these wonderful papers that were in my stash from MME.  As the image is so large I have kept the layout really simple adding only a simple Kiss sentiment as embellishment.
Be sure to stop by and show us your own "Kiss" creations. We have a fantastic sponsor for this challenge:  

The Prize is 3 Digital Images
Hope to see you there!


Clean and Simple

  I have two quick posts this evening as I am playing catch up tonight. The first is for the current challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia where the theme is Clean and Simple.

For my card I've used  Lovleypop Tilda which I have stamped and coloured directly on the card. I knew that I wanted to add a little pennant to embellish but it looked a little blah all by itself so I've diecut the Magnolia cloud and used it as a mask to add a few clouds with Distress inks. A sweet birthday sentiment matted and  mounted with pop dots finished it all off.
Be sure to join us with your own creations for a chance to win.

Stamp and Create carries a wide range of Magnolia stamps at some of the lowest prices!

Jolly Old Elf

Good morning, I am a day late with this post but I can finally get to the computer. I am here to tell you about the new ABC Christmas Challenge that started yesterday. Our theme this time is
J for Jolly Old Elf

For my card I have opted to use a favorite image from Kraftin Kimmie. I had decided that I wanted to create a card in a more clean and simple style so I turned to Alice's Little Wonderland for inspiration. I've stamped the image directly on my card and coloured with Copics before adding some washi layers and a little sentiment. I think it turned out okay and the best part is that it can go in the mail. I don't think that it will replace my usual style but I do think you will see a few more cards done like this from time to time.

Now it is your turn. We have generously been sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts
who have offered one lucky winner a £10 gift voucher.
