Festive Fairy

I made this card at a Craft get together I went to a couple of weeks ago, we followed a sketch provided by Banshee on the Docrafts forum. I used a stamp set that was a free cover gift from a magazine. Lots of Stickles to cover up my rubbish colouring. I found it very tricky!

The gingham ribbon is one of my favourites and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. I added to red gems to the leaves to look like winter berries.

I am entering this on the Cupcake Challenge Blog, theme Fairytales and Panto.

For the man in your life

A Christmas card ! The scribble snowman would be easy to colour with his team's favourite colours, this one would work for Liverpool or Man United. I am loving Kraft cardstock at the moment and teaming it with red and white gives a Scandinavian feel.

I stamped the background with Stampin Up's serene snowflakes stamp set and spot lighted one of the snowflakes to make an embellishment and the edges have been sponged with white craft ink. A bit of faux stitching with a white gel pen to finish it off.

I am entering this for this week's challenge on Papertake Challenge blog, cards for men.

This sweetie is a stamp from Lili of The Valley, Rosie Posie. I have coloured in with promarkers and used some flowers from my local 99p shop, what a bargain!
