Easily Distracted!

I was searching for something else, when I came across these gold and silver pots of Starlight paints from Imagination Crafts which I bought back in Summer 2016! I was going to do some embossing but ended up painting instead.

They have only been used a couple of times, so it seemed a good idea to paint some wooden shapes. The heart and cats will end up on the Christmas tree, the sparkly reindeer in cards and I'm not sure what to do with the golden  sheep shape!

Great Value for Money

I picked up this book of Winter Feelings die cut elements from The Works - as you can see it only costs £3 for 12 A4 pages 

Packed full of different stars, trees, snowflakes, deer, foliage, garlands etc

They illustrate 12 different cards, but I have have mixed and matched with some other stamps and elements from my stash and made around 30 different Christmas cards with some bits left over!

Some Cute Christmas Cards

Whilst I prefer stags, reindeer and snowy scenes on my Christmas cards,  you have to make some in lots of different styles to suit different tastes

So here are some cute cards!

Silver Swirl

Used my lovely Honey Doo Bauble swirl stamp again, this time embossed in silver and layered with silver holographic card - looks quite striking and different from when I stamped it in gold last month

More Christmas cards .....

All made with bits from my marathon die cutting session at the weekend

And like so many of my cards they might feature reindeer!

Busy, Busy .....

I've been busy with my Big Shot cutting out loads of shapes for my Christmas cards - baubles, reindeer, tags and sentiments

I've tried to use up some of the small scraps of card that I've been hording for ages as well!

And here are a few of the end results!

Cats & Dogs wearing hats

These cute foam cats & dogs wearing Christmas hats were part of my haul when I went shopping in the USA last month. 

I also cut out lots of  black cats & pumpkins using the dies I bought there, to put in the Halloween sweetie bags that I handed out last night
