Winter Fairy

Hi all, just wanted to share the christmas cards I,ve made for my beautiful little nieces, they love fairies & anything sparkly, so this digi stamp 'the winter fairy' from whimsy is perfect for them, although I think I may have gone a little OTT with the glitter & sparkle, lol.  Once again, apologies for the pic, I'm still struggling with the camera & editing, even after all the advice my lovely fellow crafters have given me :(

I've coloured the gorgeous fairy with docrafts pearlescent paints, promarkers & distress inks, backing papers are from my stash & flourishes are marianne dies, it doesn't show very well but the fairies & the snowflakes have been covered with stickles & twinklets (glass glitter).  Thanks so much for looking today & any comments you leave.

Silver fairy

Morning all, its still bitterly cold here, but at least its dry.  This card is for my sons girlfriends birthday, but I suppose it could be a christmas card because of the image.  I,ve used the beautiful siver fairy from whimsy.

Apologies for my photo (I'm still no better with the camera) the flowers look yellowy cream, but are in fact, white & lilac. 
The backing papers are from a free xmas cd rom I found (and never used).  I,ve used a crafters companion embossing board to create the frame around the fairy & a martha stewart punch to create the layers behind.  Ribbon & gems from stash & flowers from wild orchid crafts.  The corners & flourishes are all marianne dies & I,ve used loads of stickles, snowtex & glamour dust, don't think it shows very well tho :)
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges :-

Papersundaes  -  Winter wonderland
Digi Doodle Shop  -  Lots of Sparkle
Mariannes Design Divas  -  Sparkle & Shine

Thanks for taking the time to look & any comments you may make.

Contemporary Christmas

Hi all, hope eveyones ok and keeping warm, its absolutely freezing here in Wales.  Because of the cold, lol (as if I need an excuse) I intend to have a marathon crafting session:)  So may well have a few cards to show today.
My first card was inspried by the creative inspirations challenge (contemporary colours) using only purple, turquiose &white.  Very different to cards I usually make, but I think I like it :)

The trees are a digi stamp from MCS, I found the stars in an old mag & coloured them to match, snowflakes are from a stencil I,ve had for years & the sentiment was also from a magazine.

Id like to enter this card in the following challenges:-

Creative Inspirations Challenge  -  Contemporary Colours
Totally Papercrafts  -  Let It Snow
