Christmas Tilda

I only managed to make one card today and it is another Christmas card.

This card is for the Tilda & Co weekly challenge and this weeks challenge is "As cold as ice" and you have to make something using only blue and white and of course your project must include a Magnolia stamp.
I coloured my Tilda using prismacolour pencils, blended using sansador. I used a little glamour dust (very fine glitter) for her wings, but it doesn't show up too well in the photo. I used my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and embossed some pearlescent blue card and also some white glittery card. I cut both of these to the same size and matted them onto some navy blue bazzil card. The Winter Wonderland is a clear stamp (sorry don't know who by), I stamped onto white card using blue versafine ink pad and then chalked over it with pearlescent blue chalk and then I matted this onto navy bazzil card. The two embellishments I added are from Papermania.

A Very Crafty Day - 3 different Challenges

Well today I have made three cards, which I must say is really good for me!

This first card I made using a great sketch which Claudia put on her blog - Pretty Pressings. If you haven't visited Claudia's blog, you really must as her cards are so beautiful.

For this card I used brown bazzil cardstock for my base card and made a 6" square card. The papers I have used are from K & Co and the lovely cowboy/girl stamp is from Alota Rubber Stamps. I only have this one Alota stamp, but I love it so much I've ordered the Western set and a few others from Helene at Alota stamps. I used my cuttlebug swirls embossing folder on the pink cardstock. The button flower, ribbon and ribbon slider are from my stash.

This second card I made using this weeks sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog.

This weeks challenge over on One Powerful Hour Challenge Blog is feathery friends.

The stamp I used is from Artistic Stamper and I stamped it onto white card using black archival ink and coloured using my prismacolour pencils. The papers and button flower were from my stash.

This final card for today I made for the Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog - this weeks great sketch was set by Mumur.

I decided it was about time I made a start on Christmas cards and this sketch was the ideal opportunity to do so. The papers I used are by Hot Off The Press, the stamped image is Scribble by Funstamps. The brads, snowflake stickers, white fibres and little joy tag are from my stash.
