When I saw the smaller sized Action Wobbles I just knew I ‘had to have‘ them, and now my world is complete lol. They are seriously the perfect size… and for a person who makes very few ‘interactive’ cards, I’m hooked! I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.
I’m so excited to be back this year with my Same but Different Christmas Card Series. If you were here last year then you know that this series can contain many different ideas / themes / styles… well, almost as long as it is the ‘Same but Different’ .
Today I thought I would kick things off with a theme, so lots of different products and every card unique but all with a similar theme and colour palette, all to make creating so much quicker and easier.
Have you just hopped here from JULIA’s incredible blog, if you did then you are in exactly the right spot, if not, you can start right HERE at the very beginning so you don’t miss out on anything!

One of the most beautiful ‘flowers’ ever and so perfect on a Christmas card, especially in ‘gold’. Our Poinsettias have just finished flowering as we are now heading into Spring / Summer here, but they do add such a brightness to the garden, actually I have a memory that they are not flowers but that they are coloured leaves? Do you know, or did I dream that? Oh, and I also decided to film as I coloured.
This time the call was for Diamonds / Jewels for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine and I realised that I had not one….. sadly. But I got creative and this is what I came up with, it’s hard to see in this below average photo but each section of the diamond is a shaker… so cool!
Loving the sentiment too which is a wood veneer from Freckled Fawn, they have such fun embellies. Have a great day,
Happy Birthday to my sister and Happy New Year to you all!
My sister has an owl fixation and this year for her birthday her card had to include an owl, of course. So out came this little cutie from Mama Elephant and I just love how he stamped out in orange. I filmed as I created so you can watch the process.
Hope you’ve had fun this New Years and that you’re head is not too sore… I would just like to take a moment to thank every one of you for your visits and supportive comments , it really does mean so much to me. I would also like to wish you an absolutely wonderful 2016, may there be lots of smiles and laughter! Big New Years Hugs to you,
Thought I would sneak in some challenge inspiration and as usual Michele never fails to deliver at this week’s MUSE and here it is in all it’s fabulousness!
I kept the basic sketch very similar although changed the orientation of the card and was wondering if would you could call a pig cute? Well I think that this one is! I also added a ‘slightly’ bold sentiment….
This card also fits the bill over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for Diecember, where it’s time to go ‘Die Crazy’, and as you know I loves my dies! A word of warning though, I’m back tonight with a video for Altenew so I’ll see you again real soon!
Other Supplies: Shape N Tape – Silver. Stamps – Close To my Heart – Animal Greetings Operation Smile. Prismacolor Pencils – Warm Grey 10%, Cool Grey 50%, Deco Pink. Pink Rhinestones. Cardstock – Taffy.
I know it’s meant to be a goose, but I wanted a duck and cause it’s yellow it’s a duck… now. I had so much fun creating my little ‘old school’ storybook scene and when you want a little simple shading then Prisma’s are my go to choice. You can find this card over at The Alley Way Stamps Blog. And while I’m here you may have already heard that TAWS is sadly closing it’s doors, but that means that you can buy their fun stamps at an incredible 40% discount, so head on over!
My apologies in advance, today’s post is a bit of a marathon. I just want to share some cards that I had published with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for Christmas this year.
These first two cards were a stamper’s challenge using a sweet set from Clearly Besotted called ‘Set the Scene’.
And for the coordinating feature I used an October Afternoon set called Silent Night – Donnie & Blitz.
With only just over a week to go til the big day…… are you ready?
