Frosty the Snowman

It's time for another mid-week trip to Dies to Die For with a cute little Stamping Bella snowman. The snowman's meant to have a chick on his hat, but this chick is in disguise as a robin today. He thinks it's more festive and I've indulged him in this instance.

'Tis the Season to be Jolly

I used this image for a card last week and it reminded me how much I love these stuffies. I've used them again today for a more simple card, and sneaked in a sentiment from another Stamping Bella set.

Christmas Trio

It may be more wet than white outside at the moment, but at As You Like It Challenge this week we're asking your favourite way to add snow to your projects.  I love adding glossy accents as my 'ground' before sprinkling on some sparkly Glamour Dust. I also like to add some speckles of snowflakes fluttering around my critters using a white Vivo Pearl Pen. I like the contrast of the glitter and pearls.

Reindeer Duo

I've coloured a couple of Bella Bundle Girl with Reindeer, attempting a lighter touch and more subtle shading.  I really like the final result, but it was much harder than I thought it was going to be to be less heavy-handed with the inks!

A beary sweet card swap

I joined in with the card swap at LOTV and this was the card I made.  My favourite Lili images are bunnies so of course it had to be a bunny image.  I've made a matching stand for him to perch on. The sentiment is typed and I've added some festive coloured flowers.

Harry has Happy Mail

One of my favourite bears, Harry the Stuffie, is playing on my blog today with this sweet little 'Happy Mail' card.  I managed to mess up a stamped sentiment on the top panel so had to cover it over with a die cut flower!  Shhh, no-one will ever know!

Lilac Heffalump and Pingu

At As You Like It Challenge this week we want to know if you prefer cute or traditional Christmas themes.

Bride & Groom

At As You Like It Challenge this week we want you to show us your favourite papers.  I've recently moved onto plaids (which I've previously hated) but the papers I've chosen for today's card are from the beautiful Maja Design Vintage Romance pad. There are so many gorgeous papers in this set, mainly in my favourite pink and blue colour schemes. My only complaint is that they're double sided, and I often feel frustrated in having to stick one side down and hide it. There are definitely some I cannot bear to use because they're so pretty!

Running Mice

I wanted to try something a little different today, and make an animated 'flip' page notebook. I used one of the mice from the MFT Harvest Mouse set and stamped him on each page of the notebook gradually moving forwards each time. I also drew in a little cherry from the basket he's carrying to try to make it look like it was falling to the ground.  I've included a video below the main photo and I hope it works to show you what I've done!

Best Gifts

We're talking stitching at As You Like It Challenge this time, and although I really love real stitching on cards, it's so much simpler and neater to use stitched dies to apply a bit of texture and interest. I've opted for a curved and straight stitched die edging for my image panel although looking through my dies, a large proportion of them are stitched to some degree!  This card was made for my "bestest buddy", but she's received it now so it's safe to share.

Sunday Papers

I've had a lovely relaxing weekend including colouring up some soon-to-be-released new Vintage Boy images from Lili of the Valley.  I'll share a few with you over the next few days, starting with today's, which is called Sunday Papers.  I find masculine cards much harder to get excited about, but these cute little laddies make it much easier to get motivated to have an inky session!  I've created a little set which I'll share over the next few days to build up a stock of cards I can give to the men in my life!
