Christmas Joy

Hello friends and welcome to my blog 

It is a really beautiful day here is Sydney ... clear blue skies with little cool breeze just perfect spring weather .... as we all know that Christmas is just around the corner I started working on my Christmas cards ... ! 

I was lucky .... that I won 3 digital stamps from Some Odd Girl Stamps  through a colour challenge with Kit and Clowder . 
So I have coloured them in.... was ready to make couple of card when, 
I saw that Some Odd Girl have a DT call out ... so thought why not....worth a try.

So here I am with my Cards ... wish me luck guys !

Here is my first card... its a Christmas Shaker card .. using the digital image 
Image is printed on X-Press It Blending paper and colored in with Copic Markers ....die cuts the background trees stems and placed inside .. gave a slight colour in the background ... with a sentiment & the image is mounted on 3D pop dots ... die cuts by Paper Roses. 


 My second card for the day is using image 
 once again ... printed and colored the image 
created a card base - 6"x 6" 
using snowflakes and some glitter ... 
the image is been mounted on 3D pop dots 
Edges are inked with distress oxide by T/H 
and place nuvo crystal drops ... and pop the eyes with glossy accent. 

It's also fun to play with Some Odd Girl's images ... perfect for all occasion and season .. love them .

Thank you so much for stopping and taking a peek . 
Have a happy crafty day ...
