All Dressed Up

I have used the gorgeous All Dressed up for Christmas image from ADU
I coloured up the image with markers, sparkle pens & glamour dust

The  backing paper was embossed with Darice snowflake folder and pearls in colours to match the image were added to the centers. The snowflake was cut on the cameo & glittered with glamour dust.

Christmas Wreath

 Hello everyone,

It's not like me to post at a weekend but I missed the start of the new challenge that started Thursday at 
Moving Along With The Times

With everyone's favourite theme 
Anything Christmas

I stamped flowers (Dreamees) onto vellum with versa mark and heat embossed in white. I the coloured on the back before cutting out to prevent them from curling up. 2 layers were glued together, shaped and glamour dust was added to the centers. 
The leaves (Chloe stamps) were stamped onto acetate with versa mark and heat embossed in silver then cut out.
The leaves were arranged onto the card in a wreath shape and the computer generated sentiment was added . The flowers and bow were then added and there you have it!

MAWWT are looking for new DT members detail how to apply are on the main challenge blog here

The theme is:
One for the Boys
 Sponsoring the challenge this week is:

Di's Digi Designs

I was asked by a friend who was expecting a new grand child to make a card for her older Grandson to prevent him feeling left out. This is what I came up with

I sourced a picture of Fireman Sam  as the little boy who is 2 years old is a great fan

The flames were printed off  stretching them in height to fit the different sizes of the stepper card.
The sentiment was computer generated

I was quite pleased how it turned out as was Harry

Especially For You

Good Morning,

I recently brought a kit from The Hobby House, well actually 2, one for me and one for Alisha my Granddaughter. I thought we could sit and craft together but she was so thrilled she took it home.
Soooo........... I sat and had a play all by myself

I just love the image, such a cutie!
Everything except the glitter was from the kit. So easy when you need a quickie!

Good Morning,

I had a little play a while ago but never got round to posting the outcome.

The word 'hugs' was used as a mask, while in place distress inks and small stamp were used all over and around the word. Dahdah............... when the mask is removed the hugs pop. Sending was stamped above the image,  matted and layered onto black card and there you have it.
