More Christmas Cards...

Here are some more of this year's festive creations...

 Firstly my attempt at Nordic/Scandinavian style...

Then a classic Christmas tree with a turquoise twist....

And finally poinsettias on a cheerful stripey background...
I am feeling suitably festive now - Happy Christmas everyone!

New stuff to play with...

I've treated myself to a little online shopping for tools and supplies, and am having a lovely time experimenting with my new goodies.

I'm a first-timer with embossing boards and am impressed with how easy they are to use. I made this tiny little engagement stepper card using the Glitter Girls 'Mini Treasures' board.

I sometimes struggle with men's cards, so I thought perhaps some suitable papers would give me a starting place. I looked at all the 'manly' paper collections I could find, and I eventually chose some from the American Crafts 'Chap' collection. I love the fantastic retro patterns.

My final purchase was a Cuttlebug 'All in One' embossing folder, with an alphabet. I really like the idea of this product, and my first attempt did not disappoint - it's dark brown so it's difficult to see but I've embossed 'Mark' across the bottom of this card.

So, happily I feel that my shopping spree has been a total success...(until the credit card bill arrives, that is!)

Colourful Cards

I like bright colours in the summer, and the cards I am making at the moment are full of lovely vibrant colour combinations and patterns.  Got your sunglasses ready?..
