More Christmas Cards!!!

I still have quite a few Christmas cards to share.  These were made with a Woodware stamp that I bought last year just before Christmas so didn't get time to use it.

The first and third card use papers from Craft Creations, the other two cards use papers which were magazine freebies.

Mini snowflake cards

I got some lovely digi-stamps from Pink Petticoat featuring some lovely snowy sentiments.  They made some quick and easy cards by cutting them out with square and deckle edged nestabilities, overstamping with snowflakes, a little sprinkle of Stardust Stickles and some sequins.

Here are some more Christmas cards made with some lovely Penny Black cat and dog stamps.  All the papers used are magazine freebies and the sentiments are a mixture of Penny Black, Lili of the Valley and Pink Petticoat.

There is still time to join in with the challenge as it doesn't close until the end of the year, what were your five favourite Christmas creations?

Cute Christmas Teddies

I got a new Christmas stamp from Penny Black and just couldn't resist using him on some last minute card makes.

All the backing papers are from Craft Creations, except the last one which is unbranded.  

I coloured the sweet ted using Promarkers -

I am entering these cards into the Christmas challenge over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog.

More Special Christmas cards

Here are a couple of the other special Christmas cards that I made -

This one is for my Mum who likes what she calls a proper traditional card, no cute stuff for her and she seemed to like it.  The stamp is by Kanban and the holly is a Cheery Lynn die embellished with red pearls.  The sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio and the background paper is from Craft Creations.

 And this one for my sister who has two adorable doggies so I do try to make her a cute card with a dog on.  The stamp is by Lili of the Valley and the sentiment was cut using Memory Box dies.  The papers are by Craft Creations.  The mats were cut with Stampin Up label dies.

I coloured the images with Promarkers.

I am entering both cards into the following challenges -

Christmas Day

Gosh it doesn't seem possible that this time last year we were on a cruise ship and on our way down to Lanzarote having visited Tangiers on Christmas Eve.  It was a lovely day spent at sea, we kicked off the day with a lovely Church service and then spent the day playing games and doing quizzes, we even watched the Queen's Speech.  Then in the evening we had the Captain's Christmas Day Cocktail Party and Gala Dinner and a chance for some photographs of us in our posh clobber.

The layout is a class taught by Anita aka The Inky Blossom using Basic Grey 'Lucille'.  I used Sizzlet alphabet die 'Santa's Workshop' to do the title.

Thank you Anita for another lovely class x

Happy Christmas Mr P xxxxxx

The sweet teddy bear is a Lily of the Valley stamp and the two stamped sentiments are Crafty Impressions.  The die cut hearts are all made with a Cheery Lynn set of dies and the paper is by Craft Creations.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and lightly glittered with Stardust and Fruit Punch Stickles.

DigiStamp Boutique Reindeer Cards

Last year I used a lot of these pre-coloured Reindeer digistamps from Digistamp Boutique to make last minute cards.  They were so easy to glam up with a bit of glossy accents on the nose and Icicle and Stardust Stickles to give them some sparkle.  This year when I looked through my box of Christmas stuff I found that I had some leftover from last year so rustled up these cards with them.

Warning this post is a bit photo heavy!!!
