Christmas lambs



   As usual the theme for the Crafting From the Heart challenge is anything goes. I have added to my Christmas makes.
   This Giordano Studio stamp is called Christmas lambs and after colouring it using Promarkers I added Liquid Pearls to the falling snow and matted and layered it onto paper from my stash and white card.

Autumn teddy



   The theme for the challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is fall colours and is being sponsored by Little Blue Button Stamps.
   I have used a sheet from Hunkydory's Little Book of Autumn and matted and layered it onto deep orange card and white card. I edged the sheet using copper peel off strips and then used additional sheets to decoupage the image. After adding Glossy Accents to the bear's eyes  and muzzle I added a copper peel off sentiment.

   These are Giordano Studio stamps from Joanna Sheen which I have not used for some time. The one on the left is called our family and the other is called love this Christmas.

Harvest bouquet


   This week the theme for the QKR Stampede challenge is anything goes with the twist of fall colours.
   I used the Eureka digi harvest bouquet (number 38501) and coloured it using Promarkers. I used a glitter gel pen round the edge of the ribbon, flower soft in the centre of the sunflowers and Glossy Accents on the holly leaves. I dusted the background using Distress Ink before attaching it to cream card. Finally I added a card candi to each corner of the design.
