Lil Christmas Lolita

I have seen a lot of Christmas cards being made in Blog land and having just taken delivery of this stamp from Tickled Pink Stamps I thought I would make my first of the year

Great Stamp isn't it? she is called Lil Christmas Lolita Lilith

I coloured her with Promarkers and added Stickles to the fur trim and as falling snow
The flowers are are from my stash with added Stickles and gems for bling
I cut the leaves from white paper and coloured them with promarkers then cut and shaped them 
I have had the little metal photo corner for ages 
I think the sentiment stamp is Penny Black 
The papers are .... hmm forgot will add this in later 

Anyway I would like to add this card to the Sketch and Stash challenge 

The new stash is the stamp 
and my forgotten stash is the metal photo corner


Scalloped Circle Easle Card and Tilda too!

I am really happy to have made top 3 for this card @ Crafty Emma's Challenge Blog 

I have been playing with my Silhouette again and it is playing along nicely for a change and cutting like the good little cutter should!
I cut the scalloped easle card and the nesting circles on the Silhoutte
I cut the bunting by hand
The sentiment is computer generated in PSP
the flowers in her basket are from a Cuttlebug die and punched flowers/ leaves as are the flowers& butterfly 
elsewhere on the card
I coloured Tilda with Promarkers, cut her out and raised her a little with foam pads for dimension.
The papers are My Minds Eye - All Girl

I would like to enter this card into :

  Just Magnolia/Hangler challenge which is Sentiments

Not a stamped image in sight!!

Shock horror I have created a card without using a stamped image!
 I thought I would have a go at creating with Die Cuts and use up some of my other stash creatively. I made this card for an order, with a box to match.
The bird and bird cage are Tim Holtz dies
I distressed them with distress inks and cosmic shimmer pearly spritz spray 
I made some of the flowers from punchies and some are from my stash that I added the pearl shimmer and some stickles to I made the pearl embelishments myself . I also added gems and pearls to the flowers
The DP is  My Minds Eye Totally Girl I just love this paper pack 
I made the hanging charms from my Jewellery findings stash
I added some lace and computer printed sentiment then decorated the inside and the box to match
The Inside 
and the box

New challenge @ The Paper Shelter is a recipe 1-2-3 3 - papers, 2 images, 1 embellishment

Challenge#27  At The Paper Shelter is a  Recipe 3-2-1
 3 papers, 2 images, 1 embellishment

The two images I have used are 
Let's Make a Picnic and Quiet Moment
I have coloured them with my Promarkers
The papers are from the Lets Make a Picnic set and they print out lovely

I have used my Silhouette to cut out the scalloped edge on the paper before mounting onto my card
and also to cut the nesting square in the coordinating checked paper
my third paper is the gorgeous rose printed paper that I have punched with my Fiskars threading water punch to scallop the edge
My embellishment is the Anita's dimensions butterfly with its diamante flight trail.
