Contemporary Christmas Cards

Still in the same mode! Here are a couple of cards that were inspired from a Stampin Up catalogue. I wouldn't normally combine pale blue and green but  love the result. By the way, don't forget to check out  Paper Frills online shop when you have a chance. I have listed most of the cards already but if don't see a card you're interested in, please let me know. Some of the one-off cards are not listed but it may be possible to remake using slightly different materials. Anyways, here are the cards I wish to share today.
 Materials used: Stamping Bella stamp, Anna Griffin greeting stamp, Hero Arts snowflake stamp, cuttlebug, circle punch, Prisma colour pencils,  lime green gingham ribbon

Materials used: Freebie stamp, floral flourish stamp for background, Versamark ink, Distress Inks, Stickles glitter glue, narrow white grosgrain ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!

Some more Christmas cards

I'm really enjoying making Christmas cards now that I'm on a roll! I think I'll be sad when the holiday season is over and having to wait another year. At the moment I've got all my Christmas embellishments, papers etc out and its easy to see what's available in my stash. Then I spend some time putting it together to get some ideas. This way I find its easier to come up with designs. Here are some of the cards I made recently but have not had time to post.

Hope you like this selection. Thanks for stopping by!

Little Cards

I have been trying out different designs for my Xmas orders. Here are a few that I enjoyed making. Someone out there in the blogging world once showcased a little card made with a die cut shape and that was my inspiration. The finished card is only about 10cm by 9.5cm and very cute! As I made about 6 in a row, it was quite easy working out an assembly line and was so much quicker than completing one at a time. My inspiration for the red quilled card came from As at Simplerhyme and Miyyah.
They are two fab quillers who have shared some wonderful quilling.

Thanks for visiting!xx
