Firstly a very good friend of mine commissioned me to make her four Christmas cards for her to send to overseas friends and family. She wanted them to be "Australian" and "Fancy". I came up with these. Made using the retired Stamp Set, "Bloom Away", I watercoloured them and made them into Easel Cards. I knew there was a reason I never got rid of that stamp set. A little hard to see but I put a touch of glitter on the tips of the blossoms and Shimmer Paint here and there to make them feel a bit Christmassy. She absolutely LOVED them and was loath to post them off.
This is one of my stamp-a-stack Cards
I have been meaning to make an Advent Calendar for the Boys for a few years now and finally got to it this time round. The Cherry Cobbler Petal Cones were little table treats for my regular ladies who come to my classes. They were thrilled to see them on the table when they arrived for their last class.
A Christmas Tag
The "Christmas Decoration" from the front page of the Holiday Catalogue. I used it on top of the Teachers' Present as a Decoration Bow which then doubles as a Decoration to hand at home.
Gift Bag and Tag for my cousin's little girl. Came up a Treat.
My Mum always makes a Christmas Cake for her good friends at Christmas time. She always decorates them nicely and this was her effort for Christmas 2012.
I made these little Snowflake tags to decorate a few other presents. So easy with the Snow Flake Die and our Glitter Paper. The delicate Doily in the background finishes it off nicely I think.
And finally, two more cards from my stamp-a-stacks.
Sorry I was so slow in posting these projects. I'd like to think I could get my next lot of creations out a bit quicker next time. Sale-a-bration and the new upcoming Seasonal Catalogue to create from.
See you soon.
