Started my Christmas cards at last

I have started making a few Christmas cards using the scraps I have left over in my white card box

Covered in ink but that's normal for me, I  thought these cards would be quick but had to stamp the boots individually as even with my Tim Holtz stamp whatsit I couldn't stamp all 4 together as they made a horrible smudgy mess



For once not a promarker in sight

I used a black soot distress pad with blending brushes for the background
Cardio wellies stamp set I bought years ago & forgot I had
Various foliage stamps & sentiment
A bit of glitter for the snow
Mounted onto a 5x7 card blank

I ended up making 4 in this colourway but i'm going to change the colour of the background for the next batch

Off to make more mess
Hugs

Another arrow fold card

I've made another of the arrow fold cards using Creative crafting worlds summer gnomes using scraps I had left over, I love the colours & patterns on these papers

I've managed to get the fold lines perfect this time by using the scoring blade on my trimmer so all lines meet at the point this time




I may start making a few Christmas cards using the scraps I have left over from my Winter gnomes using this fold
Hugs

30th birthday card for my Nephew

 I was making this card for my nephew today remembering the 1st time I met him 27 years ago when he was dressed up as Batman, a little boisterous 3 year old whose 1st language was Welsh with limited English

Wow how time flies, pleased to say he now has 2 rugrats of his own 5 years &  just 2 months old who are wonderful children

This is only the 2nd time I have made this arrow fold card design so yes it is a bit wonky but more practice will help



The papers & gnome image are from Summer gnomes by Creative crafting world

The numbers are dies from my stash

A few pearls to balance the image

Happy crafting & stay safe
