Completely Christmas - Sketch + Glitter
http://suzysmarty1.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/completely-christmas-challenge-42-mid.html

I have used a paper from a Christmas paper pad.  I added three strips of white ribbon from American Crafts.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and has been coloured with copic markers and Stickles.  I matted with glitter cardstock from DCWV.  I coloured some white pearls with copic marker B29 and added one to each strip of white grosgrain ribbon.

Thoughts of Winter

A wintry card - but not necessarily for Christmas.

I have used a patterned paper from Rosie's Studio for this card.  I matted with glitter cardstock from DCWV.  The image is Winter 10 from Fitztown.  I coloured the image with copic markers B29, B24, E00, E18, E15, Y06 then added some Stickles to the hat and sleeve trims.  I also coloured some glitter domes from Sullivans with copic marker B29 and added these to the card.

A Present For Someone


I was sure I had some tartan ribbon at home but couldn't find it.  Went to the Dollar Store with my daughter to see if they had any - no luck.  Then my daughter told me she had found some tartan fabric at home when she was tidying so I have used a strip of that!

Victorian Christmas Dress

My teenage daughter has just been accepted into a costume design and construction degree.  She is thrilled and looking forward to it.  It does mean moving out from home so big changes ahead for her.  She has a particular love of the Victorian era so I'm sure she is going to love this image!

I have used a paper from a Christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft for the background.  The image is Mrs Claus from Sassy Studio Designs.  I printed her quite large to make her the feature of the card and then coloured her with a combination of copic markers and Stickles.  I added two pearls as earrings (which I coloured with a copic marker).  I wrapped some baker's twine around the Spellbinders die-cut to frame the image.
