Sweet Penguins

I really felt like making something Christmasy this week so I grabbed one of my all-time favourite sets by CC Designs. I just love these sweet penguins SO much and I had lots of fun colouring them.

I found a background piece I had made ages ago using the Bokeh technique and decided to use it with the cute penguins.  It was very bright through, so I placed a piece of vellum paper over the top of it which also added some extra dimension and looks great.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Sweet Penguins, My cupcake twila
Card : x-press it, snowy day (CC Designs), vellum paper, shimmery white
Ink : memento black, versamark, white craft ink, turquoise
Other : Circle die, layering tags die, silver ep, Copics

So this is my first Christmas card for the year.  I LOVE making them, so hopefully there will be lots more to come :)

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :

ABC Christmas Challenge - S for Sew What
Anna's Craft Cupboard - colour challenge
Work it Wednesday Simon Says Stamp - Stamp

Forest Pixie

I have a really cute card to share today, using the new CC Designs set called Forest Pixie.
You might be wondering where the pixie is?!  Well she is gorgeous, but I decided to make this all about the adorable forest creatures instead :)
All of the stamps are from this set and I used the matching outline die too. It comes in very handy for cutting out this many little elements.

I decided to use a sentiment from the new 4 seasons sentiments set.  I thought it went well with the scene and I will be able to use it for lots of different occasions.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Forest Pixie, 4 Seasons Sentiments
Card : x-press it, crumb cake, naturals ivory, espresso, celery, gumball
Ink : memento black, espresso, pool party, celery
Other : Forest Pixie Outline Die, Make a card #14 die, Make a card #11 die, autumn enamel dots, copics

Clove with Coffee

I have another card for CC Designs today using one of the new stamps from the Rustic Sugar range.
This one is Clove with Coffee.

I decided to leave it without sentiment so that I can use it whenever there's an occasion that I need a guy card.  I think it would work for just about anything :)

I coloured him with blue and grey copics to match this gorgeous paper by Maja Designs and used distress inks around the edges of all papers.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Clove with coffee
Card : x-press it, crumb cake, espresso, Vintage Autumn (Maja Designs)
Ink : memento black, distress ink (walnut and linen)
Other : rectangle die, copics

Meow-lloween Kitties

I have another card to share from the wonderful new CC Designs August release.
This time I've used the cute mummy cat from the Meow-lloween Kitties set.

There are heaps of cute cats in this set but when I saw this one I had the idea to write "Curses"  on the front and I'll probably add "I forgot your birthday" on the inside (knowing me).

I don't think I've raided the medicine cabinet when crafting before but I did for this card.  I decided to use a little piece of real bandaging and left it dangling down on the side.  It looks great in real life :)

I used the new Half Rectangles Die to cut the background papers out and I used the new Dotted Rectangle Die for the base the cats are on.

I made the word using some rub on letters I've had lying around for years.

Ingredients ;
Stamps : Meow-lloween Kitties
Card : x-press it, Delight (authentique)
Ink : memento black
Other : half rectangles die, dotted rectangles die, meow-lloween kitties outline die, rub ons (MM), copics

Copics used :
YR 14, 16, 18
Y 11, 13, 15, 26
YG 0000, 01, 03
R 00, 20
W 1
