First Christmas cards of the year!

Did a bit of playing around with Christmas papers last week and came up with these basic cards (4x4). The paper is Docraft's Christmas Back to Basics Modern and the button is from the coordinating pack. I used some vellum too to give a bit of depth. The ink is SU Real Red and River Rock, and the stamps are Hero Arts and SU.

Let me know what you think!

Hodgepodge card

This is a card I made for my cousin's birthday using some Dear Lizzy stickers and rotary stamp, as well as various other bits and pieces I had in my stash. It's not my usual style but I really like it, and want to try and challenge myself to make more of this kind of "collage"-type card. I need practice layering up lots of embellishments!

My fave bit is the old-fashioned camera which I cut out from some cool designer paper :)

Another card

Here's a card I made for my godson who is turning 15 on Monday. I wanted it to be something a teenage boy would be ok with so I made it very simple.

I used some old SU designer paper and a Hero Arts sentiment. The denim ribbon is also SU - I love it so much!

Of late I've been getting back into card making, and have been buying lots of stamp sets on Ebay. Living in the UK has made it easier to get hold of crafty stuff at a more reasonable price than when I was in Finland. Luckily, this means I can also evilly enable my Finnish buddy tittakv by being her craft goodie pimp :) Royal Mail aren't complaining, either...

Ok, so to get my Browncoats Unite membership up and running, here's a card I made on Monday (which was a public holiday here in the UK; awesome!) using SU cardstock, SU stamps and some freebie patterned papers from a cardmaking magazine:

Comments welcome!

tigh me up

(no subject)

It's when I'm weary of considerations,
And life is too much like a pathless wood
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping
From a twig's having lashed across it open.
I'd like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.

Excerpt - Birches by Robert Frost
