Feminine Christmas card

I made this card with a Hunkydory topper which came free with a magazine a while back.
The topper being quite large I just added a die cut frame of red glitter card stock, using a Lawn Fawn die.
I also I added a heat embossed greeting on vellum, three die cut snowflakes with a pearl on each. This was a really quick make.

This card is for:
Allsorts - #491 Pearls and/or Gems
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - #409 Anything Christmas Goes - optional theme: For Someone Special
Daring Cardmakers - GO GLITTER
Fab 'n' Funky - #413 Christmas

Autumn Fox

I have made this card for this week's color challenge over at Catch the Bug - I loved the colors in the photo.

I used the image For Fox Sake,  colored with Promarkers. The DP is Kaisercaft, wooden printed, and I had a left over piece of orange corrugated paper in my stash and raffia. The leaves are Lawn Fawn die cuts and I dipped them in a DI and water mix.

Thursday is "Oldie bt Goodie" day over at Catch the Bug, and this is my DT card featuring one of the sweet dogs from the Chihuahua Puppy set. It's colored with Promarkers and fussy cut.

The papers are from Kaisercaft, so even the tag with the birthday greeting. I used stitched dies for the papers and I added white ribbon and gold string and a attached a gold heart charm.

Inkspirational, use vellum

We have a new challenge for you over at Inkspirational and this time the challenge is to use vellum.

There are lots of ways to use vellum. I usually use vellum for adding sentiments, but this time I went with a shaker design. To avoid any spots of glue showing I chose to stitch my vellum in place after having added sequins for snow. 
The reindeer are stamped and I used a half circle snowflake border die and a stitched die to frame in the scene.

The weeks pass so quickly, it's already time for another sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and this is my take on it.

Chrismas card with golden reindeer

Seeing the sketch over at 52CCT this design idea came to mind.
I bought this reindeer die from Marianne last weekend, so I die cut one in gold paper and popped it onto a circle and added sequins to mimic the sketch.
The DPs are from a  Kaiserkraft pad with lovely blue and gold papers.
The merry die is from Tim Holtz and I used my Dymo again.
Since there's no staping and coloring involved and I knew what to make this was a ver quick card indeed.

This card is for:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Sketch
ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Upon/V for Very Quick

    Spotlight techniqe and Freebie Friday

    Happy Friday! I'm here to show you my card featuring the Freebie Friday -  you can pick it up at no cost in the Bugaboo store.
    I printed the image in large size and hadn't really pre-planned what to do with it. Then came the idea to try the technique spotlight stamping, I’ve never tried it before although it’s not a new one for many of you.
    I just added a sentiment and drew lines around the borders. It was a really quick and easy card and I do like the spotlight effect - I will use this technique again.

    This card is also for:
    Pile It On - Think Big and/or One-Layer Card

    GDT at Fussy&Fancy - Fall Bingo card

    I won a guest designer spot over at Fussy and Fancy Challenge, and this is my card. The challenge is a fall bingo board and I chose the row of  bow cheesecloth, red, string and kraft.

    I started adding lots of layers of red, kraft and brown DP,  a combo of panels and die cut frames. Then I added the image from a DP and tucked cheesecloth and die cut leaves underneath it. I used string to attach the tag with the stamped birthday greeting.
