Hello Crafters
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and you are looking forward to the new year about to come in.
Here are two birthday cards for a couple of January birthdays I have coming up, although they were made before Christmas I thought they would be better left until after :-)
Thank you for looking at my blog :-)

Last Two Christmas Cards for 2013


Hello Crafters
Last two Christmas cards for this year.
Although every one we make in card class next year, I will also be doing the same designed but for Christmas cards (trying to get ahead of the game, lets see if it works!).
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Festive Flurry Cards


Hello Crafters
Needed some quick and easy Christmas cards and the first three fitted the bill nicely.  Made 5 of each of them as they were so quick to do.
The fourth card was a little more time consuming as the sponging takes the time, but the effect was well worth it don't you think?
And as usual, a few sparkles here and there completes the look :-)

Festive Flurry Left Overs

Hello Crafters
These three cards were made with a few scraps of card that I had stamped on for Christmas tags for work and not wanting to waste anything, made these out of the left overs :-)
Added a few sparkles and a greeting and three cards were made.

Post Card Stsmp


Hello Crafters
Wanted so much to use the Post Card stamp after seeing so many pretty Christmas cards out in blog land.
I did all my embossing first with clear embossing powder, then got sponging with the inks to colour the white card.
Don't forget to wipe over the embossing after you have finished sponging to make the white "POP".

Petal's A Plenty

Hello Crafters
Another card from card class, and this was inspired by so many out in blog land but Sandi MacIver's white version stood out for me, so I thought I would have a go.
The red glitters dot is a glue dot with red glitter all over it, but be careful, the glitter does go everywhere!

Glittered Ornament Keepsakes Cards


Hello Crafters
Made these Christmas Cards at my last card class.  You can't really see but on the top and bottom photo, the baubles have glitter on them, and they sparkle so nicely :-)
The glitter is held in place by using Heat and Stick Powder, an amazing product.  If you have never used Heat and Stick, it is so easy to use.
You need to ink up the stamp with Versamark ink (if you are using a coloured ink then ink it up after using the versamark).
Stamp your image and apply Heat and Stick powder.
Heat with a heat gun to set the powder.
Add glitter and heat again to set.
Or if you are like me, forget to reheat it, and hope for the best (but the glitter has stopped on, so far!!!!!) :-)

Convention Swops

Hello Crafters
Sorry life seems to be getting in my way.
Been to Iceland on holiday, then returned to get ready for Stampin Up Convention.
Above are the 85 swops I made, and got 85 lovely swops in return, I will try and find a few minutes to photograph some and show you.
The convention was brilliant and there were 85 Pinkies and we were probably the loudest group.  Some of them can be seen below (they were a noisy bunch) :-)
Had a brilliant time with lovely people who could ask for more :-)
And thank you to my room mate Lynney, having to put up with me for 4 days.
