Quick and Easy Parchment Card

Here is a card I did today, It's a quick and easy parchment card, I used to do this craft before I started stamping and doing other cards. So it's kind of neat to get back into it again even if it is the quick and simple type. Anyway the elements were are pre printed on parchment so I just had to cut out, emboss them, then put them together with some dimensional glue. Thanks for looking. I've also entered it into the
Unstampabelles challenge

Center Step Card

Over at Come and Get It this week, Julie has set our challenge and asked us to make a center step card, well this, is a first for me. Not as happy with it as I could be, maybe I will try another one later this week, if I do I will post it here. Anyway this is the card that I made. I used the Beautiful Season Set for the main image, and Holiday Happiness for the sentiment. the paper is from last years Deck the Halls. I bought the set digitally as I loved it and this way I can use it when I want, just print and go.The other paper is non stamping up.The ribbon is taffeta 3/8 in in Riding Hood Red. The image was coloured using inks and blender pen with garden green, always artichoke, riding hood red, soft suede, crumb cake  Thanks for looking.

Hummel Christmas

This is a card I made this week, I've been doing some quick and easy cards, well relatively quick, anyway this is a M.J. Hummel picture done using the 3d paper tole, I love the images and they make great cards. Anyway found a new challenge which is right up my alley, as I normally don't post a lot of my none stamped cards here, as I usually post mainly challenge cards. I do over 400 a year, and I do from embroidery to 3d to stamping and also embroidery with beads, and every now and then I dabble in punch art, or in iris folding. So look forward to sharing more of these types of creations in the future. The snowflakes on this card are a die cut from the northern frost die and are put on with silver brads, and I used my mat pack and piercing tool to go around the layered edge to give it some more detail. I'll enter this into a new challenge I've just found called
Unstampabelles Challenges.

Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone this week at Come and Get it we have a Sketch Challenge for you, it is a fairly simple sketch made by Leslie. I decided that for this week instead of making a stamped card I've done something I haven't done recently, which is a 3 dimensional one. I do these occasionally, and when I do craft shows I sell quite a number of them. This week's version of it is a little Morehead Angel, she's such a cutie.  All of the card stock and designer papers are from Stamping up, the ribbon from my stash, and the sentiment is from the teeny tiny wishes set. I'll also enter this into the Just us Girls Color Challenge, of Red White and Green.
Thanks for looking.

Come and Get It Colour Challenge

Here is my card for our Colour Challenge over at Come and Get It. I used the Bells and Boughs set, along with the petals a plenty and snow burst embossing folders. The image was coloured with pencils and gamsol. The colours are Pretty in Pink, Night of Navy, and Whisper White. The image was coloured on Naturals white, and just to add a touch of bling, I used the silver glass glitter around the image. I also did another card almost Identical only changing up the colors a bit. Will post that one tomorrow.
Thanks for looking Cindy
