Challenge #Sketch  Friday Sketchers
Challenge #Winter Warmers  Simpledoodles
Challenge #Something you've had a while  Forfunchallenges

For this project I used one of the stamps from the Adorables Collection designed by Jayne Nestorenko for Crafters Companion.  There are six stamp plates in this collection and this particular one is called Waiting.  I've had these since they were a pick of the week on Create and Craft and haven't used yet!

I used copics to colour the image and a fine liner for the decorative edges.  The backing papers were all from CD Roms I have and the silver cardstock was from Create and Craft.

I used a cuttlebug die to cut the corners and used the waste to create the embellishment of the image corners.  The snowflakes were cut with Marianne dies and embellished with gems.

I used the sketch from Friday sketchers and added a ribbon and bow.

For this project I used one of my new digi stamps (NSR) images from My Craft Studios box set.  This one is called Wednesday child from the Nursery Rhymes Vol 1 disc.  There were 10 discs in this set and I haven't as yet looked at all of them yet.  I had seen this image and another one in the preview which had compelled me to buy this set.
I coloured with copics and used one of the decorative papers from the design set for this image.  I used the sketch from Paper play and a die to cut the diamond shaped border.

To complete this project I embellished with some small and large gems.


For this project I used a digi stamp from Eiglas called "Uriel - Angel of Fire" for those of you like me who don't know who he is, you can find a brief synopsis at the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.

I coloured with copics and used a glitter pen to highlight his gown.  For the wings I used a glue pen to trace the wings and then applied glitter to create an angel like glow.

I used a corner punch to cut the corners of the main image and an EK punch for the decorative borders.  The backing papers were all from Crafters Companion.

This is my card using Rick St Dennis  digi stamp.  I used copics, spica and glitter pens to colour this image.

The backing papers are from Crafters Companion and Create and Craft.  I used two dies which from memory I think are both from the Marianne Collection of dies.

This is quite a simple card and has been embellished with a few flat back pearls.
