It's snowing cats and dogs!

Well, I hope it isn't actually yet snowing!  But I made these two cards from Christmas cats and dogs images from DigiStamp Boutique.  Cute aren't they?

More Christmas Angels

I'm sure you could use the images from this DigiStamp Boutique set to make all year round cards, but it is the festive season and so I have gone for 'Christmas' angels.
 The 'Christmas' bit is fairly subtle- snowflakes/ornaments on the papers if you look hard!

Angel Stepper card

It's been ages since I have made a card which is a bit different to the norm (ie not just one sheet with one crease in the centre).  Thought I would try a stepper card with this cute DigiStamp boutique angel image.  Even made a tea-bag folded Christmas tree to go along side- how long is it since I have done that???  Must be over 10 years since I did tea bag folding!

Yappy Christmas!

It's been a while... my card making seems sporadic these days.  I do enjoy it though, especially when I have a pile of images that I want to use.  This one is from a new(ish) release from DigiStamp Boutique- Annie set.

CAS Christmas word art

I'm not too good at making Clean and Simple cards but thought the word art set from DigiStamp Boutique which popped into my basket (lol) at some point made an excellent chance to have a practice at them.

Autumn wishes

Sooo many new images from DigiStamp Boutique in the last few weeks I am spoilt for choice (and short on time).  I printed these nutty the squirrel ones out a while ago and thought they really had to be coloured before autumn turns to winter (yuk!)

Completely Loved

I went for something a bit different on this card, using die-cuts given to me by a friend.  Did it work?

Monster Batch of Christmas Cards!

I bought a pack of Papermania Christmas papers from the Works in July thinking they were only papers.  When I got them home it was a set of papers, diecuts and decoupage sheets. I don't really 'do' decoupage any more (used to 10 years or more ago).  It was a toss up between giving the pack away, letting it sit unused or making up the cards....
I started making up the cards, thinking they would be good quick simple cards that I could sell at Bentley Heath Country Market nearer December.  But knowing me, a card is never simple and I ended up adding little bits and bobs....






After making 16 cards I thought it was time to have a break (it took a few days to make this lot).  The other die cuts in the pack are still sat in a drawer.  Might make some present tags with them.... (maybe next year if not this year!)
