Dove cards

Here's another round of Christmas cards, I created these by cutting a square of patterned paper, black circles, all with my nesties.  I then used a dove punch and after sticking them all together I hand wrote the sentiments around the edge.

These were made with the Splitcoaststampers Christmas challenge in mind.

Crafty Sentiments - Christmas

This week is my choice of challenge and I've chosen quite a predictable Christmas theme.  Despite trying to be organised and do Christmas cards early I still don't have enough done so ...

I've used the gorgeous Winter Amy from Crafty Sentiments.  I teamed her with a lot of pink snowflakes and used the latest release from Crafty Sentiments - Christmas Circles.

Don't forget to pop on over to the Crafty Sentiments challenge blog and see what the rest of my amazingly creative team mates have created this week.

Wild Rose Studio blog hop

This card was created by using this Wild Rose Studio blog hop sketch.  It's a gorgeous sketch and I just knew this cute Elzybells Wise men stamp would work perfectly.  I adore the Wild Rose Studio images, I'm hoping one will pop up in my stocking this Christmas! *Hint Hint* (I think hubby reads my blog!!!) My favs are Ella with wand and All dressed up.  

Anyway, hope you like it!

Christmas tree

And my final reveal, my Christmas Tree set.  
You can buy it here from my digistamp shop DigiSparkle.

This card is quite CAS.  I've coloured the tree and then added gemstones that I've coloured with my copics.  I was just going to put a green outline but I was knocked (by an enthusiastic child) and so I created a swirly pattern round the edge with a glitter gel pen.  I finished it off with an Elzybells sentiment.

Better late than never ...

for my Crafty Sentiments card. Don't know why I thought I'd blogged this when I hadn't, anyway ...

I used the free digi friom DigiSparkle to create the background and I sat the cute Christmas Amy on it.  As per usual I coloured her with my copics, and used my nesties to create the square and scalloped square.  Also, if you look closely you might be able to spot the flock that I've used on her collar and cuffs, very touchy feely!

Gingerbread Man

Another Christmas release.  This is the Christmas Characters digistamp set. 

I've created a card using the gingerbread man from the set.  
He's coloured with copics and I added some liquid pearls for his eyes.  I masked the background and stamped an Elzybells in Memento desert sand ink and finished it off with an Elzybells sentiment.
