Mrs Lovebot

Having made a 'Mr Lovebot' card the other day I just had to make a 'Mrs' one too. The images are from a fab little Valentines set from DigiStamp Boutique.

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!
Been waiting for a while to show this project, but think the person who it was sent to will have opened it by now... another knitted animal hat! Been a while!
Hoping your penguin hat will keep you warm in the mornings walking the dog :-)

Bailey the reindeer

NOt sure if I have ever used this DigiStamp Boutique image before- had it for more than a year now- and so thought I'd best give it an outing.

Jolly penguin

A second card using the jolly garlands set from DigiStamp Boutique.  Going to have to print these images off again in the new year I think, when making cards for 2015...

It took a while as I kept getting distracted but I finally finished this little reindeer hat for someone special this Christmas.

Cold Noses II

I made a card a few weeks ago with this image from DigiStamp Boutique but knew I would have to use it again (and again, no doubt!).

Yuletide greetings

On a roll with a few extra Christmas cards- either for sending this year or for next years stash.  This one uses a relatively new DigiStamp Boutique image.

Monster Christmas

When to town a little making this card and pleased with the result- might have to send it to myself (lol!)  Amazing how many ways you can use the Christmas monster image from DigiStamp Boutique.

Meet Chubby

Have you met one of the newest DigiStamp Boutique characters- Chubby?  Isn't he fab?  I used the current Sketch Saturday layout to make this card.

Mr Lovebot

DigiStamp Boutique released a fab set the other day for Valentines day.  Not sending Valentines cards I thought that I could use one of the images anyway to make a thankyou card.  The card follows the current Mojo Monday layout.

Mini Thankyous

Inspired by Clare's very recent PaperArtsy project I decided to make a few little token thankyou cards.  Ok perhaps they are a little small for writing a message too, but thought I could always write that on a piece of paper along with one of these little easels.
I started off with stamping in a golden coloured acrylic using a fab little freebie that I was sent with my first PA order (thankyou :-)).  Then I went in with Clare's PaperArtsy stamps in black ink and brown acrylic paint. 
The shapes were diecut with nesties and embellished with stamps from Clare's set- the flower was stamped on card painted first with red acrylic and the leaves on card painted with green acrylic. Final touch was to assemble the easel cards and add a bead to the centre of the flower.

Seasons Tweetings

To add to my 'flat' card stash...
The image is from the cute robins chicklets set from DigiStamp Boutique.  I recently spotted that Aldi (the supermarket chain) had some 'paper tape' (otherwise known as washi tape) for Christmas...  Very good price (it was their special offer deal for the week).  Think it works quite well on this card.  Amazing what you can find in odd places :-)

warm and cosy

There is a super little freebie this month from DigiStamp Boutique which I used to make two quick(ish) cards:

Both follow the current Sketch Saturday layout.

Boughs of Jolly!

There is a new 'Jolly garlands' set from DigiStamp Boutique out which I just love!  It works so well with the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday layout too.

Sweet Mistletoes Owls

When I saw this image last month from DigiStamp Boutique I thought it would be perfect for a card for Mum and Dad.  Finally got round to making a card with it today.
The card follows the current Mojo Monday sketch.

Last Calendar...

OK my tenth calendar for 2015 and time to call it a day after this one...  phewww you all say!  I used another dog image (Duke) from DigiStamp Boutique for this one.
Have you got a favourite out of the calendars I have made this year?  Have you made a start on any?  Inspired to do so??

Sweet Christmas Owl

Who can resist a sweet Christmas owl?  I fell for this little fellow from DigiStamp Boutique the minute I saw him.
The card follows the current Stamplorations sketch.

Christmas Bert

I wanted to play with Bert again- a cute mouse character from DigiStamp Boutique.  This time I used this super sketch from RetroSketches.

Duchess and snowman

Having written most of my Christmas cards I have found that I had a distinct lack of 'flat' ones.  As a consequence the postage bill is going to be quite a lot!  Hence my 'self' challenge last weekend was to make 'flat' cards.  Out of the five cards I made in total, I only succeeded in 'flat-ness' with three- good going for me (someone who loves to add a button to most things and who is addicted to sticky-fixer/foam pads...) lol!
This is one of the 'flat' ones.  I hope it isn't too dimensionless.
The image is from the cute Duchess DigiStamp Boutique set.  I will enter the card into this weeks I love Promarkers (snowmen) and Sketch Saturday (sketch 336) challenges.
