The wonderful Debby of ScrapJourney has more blog candy to offer for your favourite 5 of 2010. It was difficult enough to get 5 Christmas cards for the last blog candy entry but anyway I have had a go and managed to whittle it down to these five.
Just came across Debby's fab blog -A ScrapJourney- where she is offering fab blog candy for your fave 5 Christmas cards. This is actually tomorrows post but the blog candy entries need to be in today as its the closing date.( have updated this to show todays date)
Here are my Favourites of 2010
I love the Bo Bunny papers I used on this one.
Beautiful Whiff of Joy Stamp
I think this one is my absolute favourite!
I didn't think it would be as hard to pick just 5 but I had to leave out another 5 of my faves, maybe I'll show them in the New Year.
Afraid I have nothing to show you today either. I am back at work today but I hope to get out in my craft room this afternoon to make a start on something. My fingers are itching to go now that all the festivities are over till the weekend. I had a bit of a clear up out there yesterday so hopefully if you call back tomorrow I'll have something on the go!
Well Christmas is over for another year, Hope you all had a fabulous day and got loads of nice crafty goodies. Among my presents were some Promarkers so I was very pleased about that. I am going to watch all the tuts on colouring with them and hope to improve my technique - now that I have time and haven't any more Chhristmas cards to make. I must make a mental note to START EARLIER next year as I was snowed under with orders during December this year,lol
A lovely pastel coloured card using papers from my stash and my old fav rubber stamp. I have paper pieced the flower and the pot as well as decoupaging the flower head. I added some stickles for a bit of glitz along with a gem in the centre of the flower head.
I made this card last month for a girl who absolutely loves Hollie Hobbie. The papers are from my stash and the flowers were sent to me in a swap. I added a border punched with a Martha Stewart punch and an organza ribbon. The image I found on google.
Just a quickie post today as I've not been well for the last few days and need to get caught up on the Christmas preparations today.
I have used a fab Pink Petticoat download image for this card and some free papers I found on the net. The gingham ribbon is from my stash . I made the sentiment on the computer. I also added some sparkle to the bodice of the dress with sakura stardust pens.
A Christmas Birthday card using the fab Winter Beau digistamp from Digistamp Boutique - 20% off Christmas over there at the minute- and some papers from my stash. I don't know the make of the flowery paper but the other is Bo Bunny. I added some red and black cardstock. The image is coloured using promarkers and I added some stickles glitter glue to her coat for a bit of sparkle.
A birthday card using this beautiful paper I got from the local craft shop. I love the colours in it. I have cut out a large nestie circle from the paper and other different sized ones from cardstock. I layered them up and added a couple of butterflies punched from the reverse of the paper. I gliltzed them up with some glitter glue and added some pearls.
Bit late today but had my grandson staying last night and then I had to negotiate the snow to my Parents house to deliver Christmas presents. Hope you aren't snowed in wherever you are and are keeping snug and warm.
My card today is a ribbon Christmas tree. I saw this idea on The Ribbon Girl Blogsite and I think it was Kathy of The Cubbyhole fame who made it. This is my version, I used a cocktail stick and tied various ribbons onto it. I topped with a button and some baker's twine and made a pot from some of the backing paper.
This is a card for a Teacher who always arrives at school immactulately dressed complete with full makeup, hair done, the works everyday. I have used this fab image from Digistamp boutique - Winter Beau and coloured her with promarkers. The papers are from Bo Bunny the dotty one is the reverse of the snowflakes. I added some bling with stickles glitter glue to her coat.
My daughter works in a nursery and asked me to make some cards for her friends there. I used some kraft cardstock, these fab woodware stamps, stamped and embossed in white winter wonderland embossing powder, some red cardstock and this fab baker's twine in red and white. I also added some faux stitching and snowflakes using a sakura white gel pen.
Another origami tree card this time using these glorious papers, Christmas Magic by Nancy Rowe-Janitz. I love the muted colours in this range. I have added lots of sparkle with stickles glitter glue around all the edges of the matting and the tree itself. I also added a gorgeous pale organza ribbon bow.
A sympathy card using my fav flower stamp stamped in brown ink and some papers from my scrap box. I love the soft sutble colours of these papers - I think they might have been by Melissa Frances. I added some pale turquoise cardstock, pale irganza ribbon and some lovely baker's twine in blue and white. The sentiment was made on the computer.
I am married to Stephen and we have two daughters and a little grandson. We live in the centre of Northern Ireland in a town called Portadown. I work part time and spend most of my free time between crafting and looking after my grandson Ryan who is now three.
