Creative Stamping Star

This was the first design from this magazine and you can tell it wasn't the last lol. I am so shocked that I kept going with this design as normally I get bored but not this time, maybe it was because I was so disorganised lol.

Creative Stamping Stockings

Third card in the Creative Stamping series, think this version is definitely my favourite and this image is the reason I bought the magazine in the first place. Of course then I was intending colouring each stocking but there is always next year.

First Christmas

We have a new addition to the family and they always get a card for themselves on their first christmas. I bought this magazine just for this image and sentiment and I am so glad I did as there are loads of other images to enjoy too.

I originally coloured the hair blond but once she was born she had beautiful dark hair so her card was changed to match, i love that you can achieve this easily with copics.



Ingredients
Image and Sentiment: Creative Stamping
Dies: Blueprints 29 and small scalloped circles from MFT stamps and XXL stitched circles from Crealies
Card: "pink lemonade" Mft and "smoky slate" Stampin Up
Embossing Powder: "blushing bride" Stampin Up

Copics
Skin - E11, 21, 00, 000, 93
Hair - E35, 57, 59
Babygro - R22, 21, 20, 30
Ground - W2, 1, 0

Tatty Ted Christmas 2

As I already had the Tatty Ted set from Papermania on my desk I decided to make another card, I did choose a different image but the design was exactly the same.

I have had these stamps for at least six years and I am amazed I have never coloured them before.

I am hoping that I will start my christmas cards earlier in 2018 so I can at least colour some of the stamps I already possess.

Penny Black Birthday Bears Again

You might recognise this design from one I made in October, in case you were wondering yes I made them at the same time but I waited to show this one until after the recipients birthday.

It was a fairly simple card to construct and the shaker pouches are so easy and effective, I have the heart ones and now I might buy them all.

This one has more sequins, it was the second one I made and I realised you could add extra so of course I did. Nothing remains except to wish Cheryl a very happy 40th Birthday xx

Creative Stamping Bauble

Second of the Creative Stamping cards, this time its the bauble and again I think this would look awesome white heat embossed and watercoloured. 

Not much else to say except I can't believe it is the 7th already, wow this month is flying past.

Creative Stamping Tree

I made several variations of this card design, all using the same set of stamps and papers. I love the look of heat embossing on Kraft card and I was pleased with how simple yet elegant they turned out.

So today I am showing the tree version, this tree would look beautiful coloured with copics or pencils and that maybe a design I use next year.
