Something New!

Hi all!

It's my challenge over at Crazy Card Party and it's an easy one, just use something new!

New paper, new embellishments, new stamps, new dies, anything new.

I recently purchased a new Papertrey Ink stamp set with a gorgeous fern image that I just love and used to create this card:

Celebrate!

Happy New Year!

This week at Crazy Card Party Regan wants to see those celebration cards.

I decided to feature a few cards I made to celebrate the season.

All these cards use a stamp set designed by Simon Says and Clearly Besotted.


This stamp set can be used to create lots of different card designs just by changing colours, the number of branches and the orientation of the branches.


This card also uses a falling snow stencil, my new favourite stencil.


And finally a very simple but effective card.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the first day of the new year!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

This week at Crazy Card  Party Deanna is taking it easy on us, we can link up anything.

I'm posting some of the Christmas cards I made this year.

Several use items I have had for several years combined with relatively new embellishments or papers.

On these cards, the paper and bows are new while the tabs are very old.


For these the bingo cards are older while the doilies and papers are new.


These cards feature a new Memory Box die.


These cards feature new papers and stamps.


These cards also feature a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink and I don't think you can tell in the photo but each card has a different colour of embossed gold. I was experimenting to see which one I liked best. The Ranger brand  embossed with the most detail followed by the Filigree I borrowed from Patricia.


More featuring relatively new papers.


The next two I 'cardlifted' from Sharon and feature a new Papertrey ink stamp set and die.



And the last feature stamped images I made last year using a stamp borrowed from Regan.


I hope you enjoyed this peak at my Christmas cards most made with a little help from my friends.

Christmas Tags

This week at Crazy Card Party Patricia wants to see those Christmas tags.

I'm featuring a couple of tags, the first I made for my tag swap a couple of weeks ago:


It features three Memory Box dies, American Crafts glitter paper and Stampin' Up gold foil paper on a rustic cream tag base.

The second I created at a scrapbook event in early November.


I borrowed the tag die(Mama Elephant) from Patricia and the ornament die(Memory Box I think) from LeeAnne, thanks ladies! It features Stampin' Up silver glitter paper combined with Papertrey Ink kraft cardstock.

Pop over to Crazy Card Party to see what tags everyone else came up with.

Thanks for stopping by!
