I love the spotty paper in the figgy pudding collection but my pad only has one, so I got to work with my polka dot stamps from PTI and made my own version! I used distress inks and hero shadow pad to soften the edges. I was on a roll and managed to create four cards from this sketch! Well, you can never have enough christmas cards!
The robin is the new inkadinkadoo stamp I embossed, cut and put on 3d foam, finished with some Sakura sparkle and gems! Red velvet just screams christmas to me, so had to add it and this alphabet is delish!
Paper: BG - Figgy Pudding, MM cardstock - moss, white card, Die's: Nestabilities - Labels 1, sizzix - alphabet, Stamps: PTI - polka dot basics , Inkadinkadoo - Winter Birds Ink: Tim's distress inks, Hero Shadow, Sakura stardust, Other: Pretty pearls, Bling, stones, 3D foam, Velvet ribbon, clear ep.

Here's a card for the Basic Grey Challenge 11 - One for the boys...
I also used Lauren's Sketch, it's been a while since I had the chance to use one and it fitted my idea so well.
I'm so pleased how this card turned out! Mainly because I redesigned the working elements so that they work in the thickness of a foam pad!
I got to use my new long nestabilities too! (NEC buy) The hat and scarf have been stamped and embossed on patterned paper, cut then placed with 1mm foam.
These are all the cute snowman faces finished with copic markers! Dillon loved them! So he has his own mini version! Too Cute!
Stamps: PTI - Made of Snow, Merry & Bright
Other: Pretty pearl, 3D foam, Big Bite & eyelet,
Thanks for stopping by, will be catching up on all your blogs over the next week, BiG HuGs, have a good Sunday, Kim x

That's way tooooooooo loooooooong, but so much has been happening and life tends to get priority but it hasn't stopped me crafting at all (just the blogging bits)! Apologies to my blogging buddies for not having visited or left comments but my best intentions seem to keep going out of the window!
So, I could go on and tell about stopping feeding baby Maoleidigh which I just had to grieve a little (such a softy), then Dillon brings endless bugs and sickness home to share with us, so I'm still trying to recover! But paper and ink calls and I have so much to share with you all!
I hope you like them, there are a few more on their way & hopefully over the next few weeks I'll try & make some cards up with them to give you a little nosey.
In the mean time here's a little card...
Materials: Paper: BG - Figgy Pudding, acetate, white card,
Die's: Cutb'g - snowflake. Sizzix - snowflake
Stamps: Basic Grey - flourish edges, Paper Artzy - sentiment, PTI polka dots
Ink: Versafine - Black, Adirondak, Hero shadow - sand, & distress inks too
Other: Pretty jewel brad, 3D foam, Tim's distresser
So, my grand plan is to tootle off to the NEC on Friday which is my ONE day off a year and treat myself to a heap load of inspiration & maybe few new purchases of course...
