Philip's Christmas Card 2008

Here is the card that my son Philip designed at school. The children all design cards then they send the designs off and have the cards made up for the parents to buy. I think he has done really well this year 3D Magical Snowman

Sketch Snowman

I stamped the scribble snowman with black stazon then watercoloured him in. Stickles were added to his scarf and hat to make him look snowy. I then added glossy accents to his eyes and buttons. I used a cuttlebug folder for the strip behind the snowman. Then othe papers were a freebie from a craft magazine. It was all finished off with a blue snowflake held in place with a blue brad.

Quick Cards

Not much crafting time lately Perplexed But I have managed a couple of quick cards - that must be why I called it quick cards!! Here they are - the first one is stamped with one of Linda Luckin's horse stamps - cute isn't he? The swirl down the side is also one of Linda's stamps and I have added some dazzling diamonds to make it sparkle! It is finished with a fabric flower that I have stamped spots onto and some diamonds down the edge!

The second card is even more simple - this time finished of with some brown paper dry embossed with the good old cuttlebug folder. This one has ribbon for a finishing touch and dazzling diamonds yet again.

Quick Note

A very yellow sunny card for a cold day! I embossed the background cards with two different cuttlebug folders and went around the edges with my gold Krylon pen. Then the tree and words were stamped with black versafine and the edges were again guilded with my gold Krylon. Two very bright blooms were then added and some diamonds. Then the whole card had gold Krylon added to the edges.

Page 5

Page 5 of my little book today! Nearly finished - well I did say it was a "little" book! This time my acetate butterflies make a welcome return they have had the edges of their wings made silver with my Krylon pen. I also used the Krylon pen on the edges of the page and the quote. The page is finished off with a few bindis for the bodies and a decoration on the quote.


I've managed two scrapbook pages today. One is 2006 and one 2007. I made them for the Funky Fairy Challenge. This week challenge there are two challenges to chose from I decided to do the Christmas one using ribbon and buttons.

Both pages have Funky Fairy backing paper from the Valentine range - very lovely papers - I might need some new ink cartridges soon!!!


I made a background out of rainbow paper then embossed some white card with a dotty cuttlebug folder because I thought it looked a bit like rain. I covered a slide mount with rainbowy paper and stamped some acetate with with black stazon. The raindrops are acrylic stickers. A piece of white ribbon with a tag was used to finish it off .

I've decided to raid a chipboard box I bought ages ago from QVC - lots of fab chipboard bits and pieces. So here is the front cover of the book that is resulting from the raid. I covered the background in green and silver dabbers then edged it with silver leafing krylon pen. The slid mount was then coloured silver and little flowers and dots added.I then coloured the grungeboard swirl with silver krylon pen and added some chipboard flowers. Just got the other pages to do now!

Dazzling Snowman

I stamped Linda Luckin's scenery stamp in dark walnut Marvey heritage ink. Then on some acetate I stamped Linda's snowman with black stazon - he was then coloured in with dazzling diamond glitter and turquoise glitter. I then stamped the snowman onto the card with the brown pad and cut and stuck the glittered snowman. Dazzling diamonds were then added as snow to the background!

Snowy Atc's

I've managed to make two atc's today! More crafting than I have in ages. Anyway The tree and snowman were stamped onto acetate then glittered and then cut out and stuck down with silicone glue. I edged them both with Krylon silver leafing pen.

Gingerbread House!

Why do I do these things? We bought this
gingerbread house kit from Ikea (I've tried to do this before and had a real disaster) So Adda my son nagged me to help make it ! This attempt is very good I can tell you! At least it is staying in one piece Lol I stuck it together then we had a fight to get icing to the right consistancy thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Gingerbread Anyway I did the snowy roof and Adda did the windows and decorations.

Strangly enough it looks nothing like the photo on the box Shocked

While we were playing Dominic cleaned the school shoes! Smile

I found these double sided sticky dragonflies when I was sorting out a small corner of my craft room Shocked well actually I was looking for the printer which was gradually disappearing under a mountain! So when I found them I stopped tidying and started crafting! I used the dragonflies covered in dazzling diamonds on the background. Then stamped some flowers in green. I finished it off with a bloom, acrylic sparkly blobby thingies and a bit of ribbon!

Merry Christmas

Last christmas card for my mum's batch of cards - for now anyway! Simply made - I put glittery rub ons onto the background paper. I kept the colours cold and snowy using only blue and white. I hope she likes it!

Good Luck

Ginger has been dusted down again today. This time a card for a friend starting a new job! I have done Ginger the same ways as others starring her. I finished this one off with paper flowers and the words cut on a quickuts revolution.

Anyway here it is I don't often use peel offs but I do find the small letters and words very useful when I'm in a hurry.

All are made using Linda Luckin Design stamps - which can be bought from Linda's fab website - If you click on the sunflower you will be transported to her site.

Christmas Moo's

I'm on roll today! These moo's are for the Craftswap monthly moo swap! All images are stamped with timber brown stazon then watercoloured in. Dazzling diamonds were then added along with a few other embellishments.

Christmas Decoration

Here is a Christmas decoration I have been asked to make - it matches one I made a couple of years ago. I had fun making it!

I started by covering a piece of mountboard with christmas paper. Then I covered some slide mounts with matching papers. The words were printed on the computer onto acetate then this was made into a shaker box with some snowy white glitter. Two star charms were added to the frames and ribbons for hanging and decoration.
