Tis the Season to Prance

I am/was so upset when Clearly Besotted decided to take a break, I am such a big fan so I knew I had to get this set as I would be kicking myself later if I couldn't make at least a few cards with it.

I wanted the deer to be jumping but I used the wrong slider discs so he not only jumps he spins as well lol. I'm hoping to get the slider discs and make a few more, I also need to remember every card needs a Rudolph.

I Hope Santa Spoils you Rotten

Last year I set myself the task of posting each and every day in December and I enjoyed it so much I'm going to try again this year.

Yet again the first Christmas cards I make are for my Florida friends, I try to get them made and sent early as I don't want them to not get them in time.

Last year one of them gave me a card with this little elf, of course I then needed the set lol.

I've made them fairly simple and almost flat as postage is quite expensive but they are worth it.

Stamping Bella Callista loves to Craft

I was colouring this image at a playday when Kelly said it was her favourite Stamping Bella image, so I decided to stop and colour it later and make it into her card.

Its a huge image and quite complicated to colour so it was done in stages. I knew the paper I was going to use so matching the colours was easy.

I have used retired card stock as it matched the colours perfectly, I kind of hope that stampin up re-release this colour as part of their main colours as its so pretty.

Blue Pram

Phew almost finished the third birthday cards, only one more to go. I coloured this one at the same time as "another Purple Pram" I wanted to use the same papers and didn't want to have to match the colours again.

I'm still liking the colour scheme, I was going to use the turquoise to mount the card instead of the grape jelly but the letters didn't show up so I stuck with the original design and colours.

You're Out of this World

This is the other version of the card I made earlier in the week, I have been enjoying making multiples of cards, I have the supplies out so why not just use them I say.

Not much else to say except I enjoyed it and I am increasing my stash of made cards nicely.

To Infinity and Beyond

I decided I wanted to try and make a galaxy background, I wasn't sure which inks I wanted to use so I made two, I will have the other card to show you in a few days. I have to say that I enjoyed making this background much more than I thought I would, I do need to invest in some white paint though as it didn't seem to matter which method I tried none were white enough.

I tried cutting a circle for the alien to stand on but it looked lost so I remembered I had bought a digi planet from Dustin Pike eons ago and for once I was right I did have it. The hardest part was getting the size right and then I coloured with my copics and all done.
