I'm definitely getting into the swing now with some Christmas card makes, and last night I made a couple more to add to my slowly growing pile. Again I started by colouring a few of the same image - I actually coloured three of this adorable little mouse, but only managed to get two cards made up in the end .. but at least I've got a head start on another card!
For my first card, I followed the sketch over at Cupcake Crafts Challenge #63
I flipped the sketch and substituted snowflakes for flowers, so I would also like to enter this card for Creative Card Crew Challenge #34 - snowflakes.
Main image: Penny Black "Thinking of You" (1517E) watercoloured, and decorated with polar white Flowersoft and glamour dust on the Santa hat;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards "Oh! My Words";
Paper: Kaisercraft (from The Hobby House);
Supplies: sparkly brads by Doodlebug; ribbon from Hobbycraft; pearl gems from my stash;
Tools: Martha Stewart "embossed snowflakes" edge punch and Arctic Snowflake punch (from The Hobby House).
For my second card I used the sketch at Sketch and Stash Challenge #22
I don't actually have any new stash on this card (pretty unusual for me lol!!) but I do have a a few neglected items .... the gold star is from a Prima red Christmas bubble - I often use the flowers but the stars seem to just sit there!! My matt gold mirri card is also somewhat neglected as i don't normally go much for gold on cards throughout the year, but I do seem to bring it out a bit more at Chirstmas. Finally, at the last minute I spotted a neglected piece of gold ribbon with stars in my box, which I thought complimented the other star reasonably well.
I would also like to enter this card for Simon Says Challenge - All that Sparkles - it's by no means the most sparkly card I have created, but I hope it qualifies with the sparkly star and the sparkly fluffy effect on the hat!
Main image and sentiment as before;
Paper: BasicGrey "Wassail";
Supplies: gold star from Prima red "Christmas bubble"; gold star ribbon from my stash.
Hope I can keep up this productive streak! :-)
