Fluffy Snowflakes


 I got some White Puff Twinkle WOW embossing powder but I'm not sure about it. Yes my Snowflakes using the Honey Bee background stamp (I think its Honey Bee) puffed up fluffly like but I'm not sure I like the fluffy finish. 

Wasn't going to waste the card though so I used the Merry die from MFT from last year that I never used then had to hunt for a Christmas sentiment on it own. To be honest it didn't really need much else.

I not sure about using my phone to take card photos, they seemed to be more crooked, weird colours than the camera. Will have to investigate more whether I need to change modes on the actual phone camera rathen then point and hope for the best!

Christmas Words


 Mmmm still not sure about using my phone for photos lost some detail on my poinsettias. Any way what’s done is done. 

I had this bit of MFT Christmas word background left over that needs to be used which is why I added the spray of poinsettias. Looking at it now I could do with adding a few more Pine needles. Didn’t bother with a sentiment there are loads already there.

I’ve been for my booster, now have a dodgy arm so not sure if I will get any cards done but we will see.

To Mat or Not


 I couldn’t decide to mat or not, the first card as a white mat underneath all the layers and second does not.

The background is Honeybee’s snowflake background stamp reason I wanted it was the snowflakes were on the smaller size. The houses, trees, sweet lamp post and sentiment is all Concord and 9th.

While writing this post I’ve made a decision I think I prefer the white mat so off to do the rest, made a total of five cards using the cute houses.

All in White


 I’m trying a new way to photo my card instead of using a camera I’m using my phone but not sure I like the way it photos white on white cards.

The snowflake background is two layers to help it stand out, the die is Taylored Expression from a few years back. The pine needles, holly leaves and poinsettias are Simon says Stamp all a  few years old now. Along with Tiny Words Christmas stamp set.

Slimline Home for the Holidays


 I loved the houses from Concord and 9th so I had to stalk the craft shops because I was sure these would rush out their stores.

I was intimidated with the amount of dies but found a You Tube explaining how they worked and away I went. The first card made is this Slimline card. Made the background sky with a scrap of blue and used the slope die that came with the set for the snow drifts.

Don’t you love the lamp post, bit fiddly to add a bit of yellow for the light but so worth it. The actual slimline dies are Newton Nook.

Happy Snowman with Blue Trees


 Same card but in turquoise blue and I added pearls for berries in the holly. No dirty marks so no snowflakes.

Happy Snowman with Green Trees


 I think almost £30 for a die is a bit steep for my budget which why I put him on my Birthday list. He is a nice looking snowman. Quite large so really doesn’t need much on the card.

The snowman is a Sizzix die and the 3d embossing folder again from Sizzix with a touch of pattern paper round the edge. The sentiment is MFT, I’m pretty sure I added the tiny snowflakes because there is a dirty mark on the snowman and added a few more so it wasn’t alone.

Fabulous Fifty


 Christmas cards stopped while I made this card. Mo’s Party image cut out and paper pieced her dress.

The numbers and sentiment are stamps with matching dies from Stampin Up. A stitched rectangle to mat and layer.

I’ve had a number of special birthdays this year with this being the last one.
