Merry Christmas and thank you for visiting my blog today…hope you and your family & loved ones have a lot of  happy times this holiday season…the cards I’m sharing today are my personal favorites…the box card took a while to plan and create but it was absolutely worth the effort…and I just love the little girl on my second card…

I started by using the Lawn Fawn box card dies and watercolour cardstock to create the base of my box card as I had planned to use lots of Distress Oxide inks to create the inside background…on the outside I simply stamped snowflakes all over using blue ink….I also used Distress Oxide inks on the outside panels of my card..

I used the Lawn Fawn Winter village stamp and dies for the village scene on the inside….I have coloured in the images using Prismacolor pencils and then adhered them onto the hilly panels…these panels are from the shadow box die set but I thought they were perfect for this card…

I added a few images on the side flaps and the sentiment on the front flap as well as another on on the front of the card it’s folded….and to add a bit of shimmer to the night sky background.I added some tiny flat silver sequins near the moon image…

The little girl image I have used in my second card is from a birthday stamp set from MFT called Happy Birthday To You but I have repurposed it for a Christmas card…I first created the background on a white front panel using Distress Inks and then used a die to emboss the pattern on it..I also splattered some water for effect…

I adhered this panel to a white card base and die cut the word Merry from gold glitter cardstock as well as a small white banner to heat emboss the word Christmas using gold embossing powder…I stamped and coloured in the girl and dog images and adhered them to my card front and then added the die cut sentiment as well…

Cards For Friends

The card’s I’m sharing today have a common theme – they are for giving to friends – but the cards themselves are quite different from one another…in the first card I tried out light colours for the masked background and in the second card I have used kraft cardstock and a flower layering stamp set…


My first card is a simple one layer card and I have tried out the Masked Inking technique as shown in the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire..this is a great idea for adding depth and interest in a single layer card…

On a plain white card,I first stamped my images using black ink and coloured them in using light coloured pencils…I decided not to colour in the fairy itself so that it can stand out better and there are no colour clashes with the background….I then cut out masks for these stamped images and placed them on the card…
I then used some washi tape to mask two edges of the card and then used squeezed lemonade and salty ocean in the unmasked area taking care to slowly fade the colours near the top of the card and leave some white space as well….
Once all the masks were removed,the card was almost ready…all I had to do was add some Nuvo jewel drops to it…

For my second card I have used a kraft cardstock card base and the same for the top layer….using a brown dye ink and the base layer of a layering flower stamp,I repeat stamped to create the background..I added a few dots with white gel pen in between the flowers…
I then stamped the sentiment on wide white strip of cardstock and stamped a flower next to it…after colouring in the flower using Prismacolor pencils,I cut out the excess cardstock leaving one section still connected to the sentiment section…
I stamped,coloured in and cut out another flower and placed it behind the sentiment before adhering it to the card front…just added a few Nuvo jewel drops to embellish this card..

Wonderful Magical Birthday Wishes

Most traditional Christmas stamp sets can only be used once a year but these days there is a lot of choice and some stamp companies have such greats sets which can be used for other occasions as well…so for my card today I have re-purposed the Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairies stamp set and made a birthday card using it…

For the card base I have used a textured indigo coloured cardstock and die cut the top layer from watercolour paper using a pierced rectangle die…then using distress inks,I created a light background…I have used Shaded Lilac,Hickory Smoke and Spun Sugar Distress Inks…
I then stamped the berry branches with grey dye ink and coloured them in using Prismacolor pencils and also stamped the sentiment with Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed it using a gold embossing powder…
I stamped the fairy images on a separate piece of cardstock ,coloured them in and cut them out before placing them on the card…I have also used glossy accents on the fairy images…
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Nuts Over Bolts About You

Believe In Magic

I used Prismacolor pencils for the very first time…I loved the brightness of the canary yellow in the set..I need to practice more with these but couldn’t resist creating one card for now..
The card base is plain white and the base layer is a kind of pear green shade which I have die cut using stitched rectangle die…I have heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder at the top left of this layer and added a cute little fairy(The Greeting Farm) beside it..
The top layer is plain white and I first stamped and coloured in the images and the die cut this layer using a stitched edge die..I added craft foam under this layer before adhering it to the base layer…
Finally I added some clear star sequins to embellish this card..
Thank you for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
