Auroa Wings-TTPH

Good morning lovely people.... I must apologise for my lack of blogging lately but I have been majorly busy making commission cards some of which I hope to share, and like most crafters  I'm trying to make Christmas cards and its just not happening ... One step forward, ninety five back lol and we seem to be racing towards November arggggghhhh scary or what?!?......Here endith today's mini rant .....

Now onto today's DT make for TTPH, the theme is Snowflakes/Stars. We're sponsored this week by Aurora Wings Who have some truly beautiful images to chose from.... I have used the stunning "Christmas Floral", it is so detailed and really did test my colouring skills, but it was such fun to colour....

I used my clear wink of Stella pen, (my best purchase in a long time, looks beautiful without the aftermath of the devils dust, which is the name for glitter in my house). I wanted to make this image the star of the show so to speak so I kept the design relatively simple...

I matted the holly paper onto red card stock and also made a frame for the picture out of the same card stock. I edged the frame with that wink of stella pen again and added a cream bow and snowflake to finish....

Xmas Hugs

Good morning all you lovely people.......

Firstly, I have a bit of house keeping.... I have decided to step down as a DT member from cute as a Button". Sadly there were several changes made from the original commitment I had agreed to and along with personal reasons, stepping down was the best thing.... I wish Francesca and the team luck and best wishes for the future.....

So on to today's card which is for this weeks challenge at TTPH..... This week  the challenge is  a "Shaped Card" and is sponsored by Stichy Bear's Digi Outlet...They kindly gave me an image to use and she is called Xmas Hugs....

I found and printed a Christmas tree template.... I then drew around it in pencil on to red card and cut it out, having taped inside the left side... I covered the front in paper and inked the edges with red ink. I coloured the image ad then cut her out and matted her on a green oval, edged with wink of stella clear pen..... I finished of with poinsettias  and gems from stash....
