Weekend makes..

Good afternoon and happy Monday :) Today I have a few cards to show. Another long post filled with pictures so I'll keep the descriptions short :)

Firstly I want to show you two cards that I made with two of the new stamps released today by Pez-A-Doodle Designs. Along with these there are 2 more nestie frames with a Christmas/Winter theme.

This one I made using Christmas Portico. I stamped the image with Aged Mahogany distress ink and shaded the background with Old Paper. I then edged the image with Vintage Photo. I thought this Studio G sentiment stamp was just perfect with the image.

For second card I used Christmas Fireplace. I used the same inks on both cards and again, the sentiment on this one is a Studio G.

The very lovely Cheryl has also been working the new release stamps so do pop over to her blog to see what she's been up to.

This card is my DT project for Crafty Angels which was a fabby sketch by Caz, and also my entry for some challenges....
  • Magnolia Down Under ask for a Christmas Decoration or Card. 
  • Allsorts Challenge  want your project based on a Christmas carol or a song title....! (mine is Deck the Halls ['tis the season to be jolly] )
  • Crafty Creations want to see metal finishes (my metal snowflake)

I used Magnolia's Santas Little Helper Tilda and coloured her with copic markers. I then added Polar White flowersoft to the trim of her hat. My sentiment is, again, a Studio G and the Papers are MME.


Finally, this card is one I made for Friday Sketchers, Cute Card Thursday (Teen Terrors) and Anyone For Anya (Make a Fake)... I added fake stitching around the image.

The image I used is from the My Guy Ian Collection from The Greeting Farm and coloured it using copic markers. The papers are from GCD Studio's Planes & Trains. I used the MS Checkerboard punch on my border and the buttons & twine are from my stash.


Apologies for such a long post.... ;)

Have a great day!

Wow, all three cards are gorgeous, but must admit the Tilda one is my favorite--being a Tilda addict and all..LOL. Love that you've done the card in one of my favorite colour combo of blue and brown. Fabulously coloured. Love it.
Thanks for playing and joining us at MDUC.

Hi Sandie - you've had a productive weekend - fab cards, love the sentiment on the first one - perfect. The colours, papers and your colouring of Tilda is fantastic and your details stunning. Ian makes a fantastic 'boy' card with those fab papers and great details.
