I LOVE Christmas (don't we all?)

Hi and welcome to a wonderful sunny.... whoops, nope! It's pouring AGAIN!
Oh my... and off to the craft room we go....

So! I wanted to create a card for the next challenge over at 52CC Throwdown. Those girls are pushing me with their challenges at the moment and I am LOVING it!

I certainly was able to be a bit more creative than usual with this card. 

Firstly I created my own DP by stamping with a snow stamp all over a piece of Whisper White card and mounted onto Crumb Cake.

I then used my double petal punch on red cardstock and then chopped off two of the petals to create a heart. 

I have used my Penguin out of my Punch Pal set, coloured him in with Stampin' Write markers and cut him out.

He's so cute!


Then I got REALLY creative (well, for me anyway..) and used two different stamps for the sentiment. I coloured the 'i' out of the 'christmas' with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker. The 'Love' is from my Loads of Love set. Using my stamp-a-ma-jig I was able to position them where I wanted them.

I have used my Cherry Cobble baker's twine to hold a little heart gem.

Check out the challenge - you will love it!


Thanks for looking xx

  2. Hi Kylie
    I am having troubles sending e-mails so I had to hijack your comment box to say thank you for a super e-mail I got from you.
    Are you sure you were looking at my blog (LOL)? I have not been crafting that long and certainly do not consider my colouring skills to be phenomenal even at the best of times (LOL)........ You made me blush with all the compliments (seriously)(LOL).
    Hope you get to a great start with your colouring in. Your Christmas card is super cutely gorgeous.
    Again, thank you so much for such a heartwarming e-mail it made my day!
