A Birthday Card for Abbi

Have been away from cardmaking for too long, always seem to be so busy this time of year,    never get to add my Christmas cards to my blog when I should.  Hopefully I will have more time this month and get back to a more normal routine.    

Imagine having a birthday between Christmas and New Years.  Made certain Abbi got her card and gifts on the day of!  The image is Sonny Honey Cloud cards and cupcakes from Pollycraft.  Colored with copics and mounted on glittered paper cut out with a Nellie's Frames.  The blue die cut is also from Nellies frames.  The butterflies are cut from an EK Success punch.

From Christmas

This wonderful musical image as from Tickell Expressions.  I used non traditional colors for this Christmas card adding a stamped image from the Stamp Barn called Enchanted Hollow.  Using a copics I added color to the music as well as the angel.   I added fine lace and a row of pearls to the bottom of the card and mounted it to cardstock from my stash.

Still Christmas

This snowman image is from Whoopsi Daisy colored with copics.  Mounted on cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then colored with a white ink pad.  Sentiment and embellishment from my stash.

The images of the homes are  from Whoopsi Daisy sheet 292. The rest of the images are from a stamp from  Morehead stamps.  I colored the images with copics and then cut them all out and mounted them on cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and lightly sanded.  Cardstock from my stash.

More from Christmas

The next two cards I used an image from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  Used a spellbinders die to cut out the image which I had colored with copics.  Mounted it on cardstock using the front and reverse sides.  Added a silver swirl from my stash.

The same image from Digi Stamps for Joy colored a little differently.  Used two metal corners from  A punch from Fiskars down one side and a small sticker for a sentiment!

Christmas Cards 2012

These images are all from Sassy Cheryl's.     

 This image is called Lucy Plays Christmas Tree Dressup!  I thought it was so much fun, I made it in several colors.  I colored the image with copics, used a gold gel pen to add a little sparkle.
Added two stickers the sentiment I popped up and the papers were from my stash.

Think Pink - the same image colored in copics again, this time using a silver gel pen and cutting around the image with a die cut from spellbinders. Added the same die cut in patterned paper and layered it onto the same paper as the second die cut and snow flake cut outs.  Sentiment from my stash.  I used this image again, in blue and in pink - each card a little different - missed taking pictures of all.

 This picture is not as bright as it should be took pictures in the evening - not a good idea!  But I did like the end results of the card.  Used pens to color the images and the words.  Mounted it on papers from my stash.

This image called The Tree Trimmers was fun, again I used colored pens, some were glitter pens.  I added a Tim Holtz Fragments tag to the side of the card.  I colored one of the images and pasted it to the back of the tag.  I added two brads and some metallic cord to finish it off.  Christmas papers from my stash.
