Cookie Cutter Christmas - Make & Take Card

This is the card I used as my Make & Take for most of my Parties this month. The layout is based on This card.

I had to change it a little to make it more 'Party' friendly - there was no room for a Big Shot so I couldn't use the Layering Circle framelits - instead we used punches :o)

The paper is of course, Candy Cane Lane.

The background was stamped using one of the Snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes.

I used the Aqua Painter and ink pads to colour - although some of the ladies used Blender Pens or the Stampin' Markers, depending on their experience :o)

The Mica Flakes were a big hit .... so easy to use!

Peaceful Pines - Silver Embossed

I am sharing another Peaceful Pines card with you today .... but this one is completely different to the ones I have already shown you :o)

What do you think to the beautiful embossed frame? Isn't it lovely? It's a new one called Pretty Paisleys and you will find it in the Autumn / Winter catalogue - on page 47.

It coordinates with the Petals and Paisleys suite of products, but I think you could use it with anything :o)

I first stamped the Tree in Island Indigo ink .... then stamped the 'Dotty' Tree on top using Versamark - before embossing with Silver Powder.

I also embossed the Tub and Star. I decided not to use a sentiment, and left the card very 'Clean and Simple'.

No Bones About It - Pop Up Panel Card

I have another Pop Up Panel card to share with you today! These lovely 'wow' cards are all over the internet still.

They look more complex than they are to make, but people are simplifying the method all the time :o) 

This one is based on a video tutorial by Collette Mitrege, although I used our standard European card as the base (half a sheet of A4).

If this is the first time you have seen one of these cards, you can see my others HERE and HERE.

I finally inked up my No Bones About It stamp set! I think this is in its second year already! It's one I purchased as soon as it came out ...... but I've just never got around to playing with it until now :o) 

This is a perfect set for all those who love Dinosaurs! My eldest son was absolutely mad about them when he was little and I always feel a little nostalgic when I see them .... which is one reason I bought the set in the first place :o)

Anyway, I managed to incorporate most of the main stamps into this card. I mostly stayed with colours from the Regals collection, but added a couple of the neutrals too.
