At last some new cards

This is the card I made for my cousin's little boy, I cut the number one and the word today with my craft robo, cut Zak and the word is with my new Vintage Market alphabet die from Tim Holtz, love the size of these letters and that they are a little fancy but not too over the top. The little dragon is from Dustin Pike which I coloured with promarkers. I added a little spot of glitter to his pom pom after all it is a party!

This is tweet from Whiff of Joy I stamped him then put the card through the printer to add the sentiment as I didn't have a stamp with a font I wanted to use. I cut the circles with my nestabilities, used some paper and card I had been keeping. I saw a comment the other day that said she had stopped keeping new papers as there will always be new papers and I thought yes you are right so everything is fair game now in the stash. I coloured tweet with promarkers the papers are so old I don't know who they belong to and I added some glamour dust and glitter glue for some sparkle.
This is a free stamp I got with a magazine, in fact I only bought the magazine for the stamps how bad is that! I stamped him on some Lili of the Valley cardstock oh its lovely to colour on with markers or water and ink which s what I did with this little chap. I added some extra balloons and painted them too. The paper is from a forever friends pack and the ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment came in the stamp set and I punched it with my new tag punch.

This is a little bug from Tiddly Inks I love to read and my lovely husband has got used to the idea that reading a book while watching TV is possible! I coloured her with my promarkers, added some glamour dust to her wings this stuff is so sparkly in real life the pictures (my poor photography skills I think!) don't do it justice. The papers are from the Nitwit from the heart collection, these papers are lovely, the little border is printed on and the heart covered in hugs and kisses is from the collection as well.

Beautiful card, I love the colour combo you used and excellent idea of using "X" as the kiss.....inspired. Thanks for joining this weeks TI Challenge.

Max said...

WOW Fabulous cards.
Whilst I agree that ALL stash should be fair game or it's just a total waste of money, I still have a problem cutting into some of my favourite papers, especially if I know there's no more available lol! Hopefully I'll get over that issue one day. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Great selection of cards, yup I have to say I did do the keep and use pile of papers but I have to say that I don't do that any more thehehee! due to the fact that there is a limit of how much UN used paper you can have and also it does go out of fashion so to speak...
anyway tehhheee thanks for playing along with us at ABC Christmas challenge this time hugs Samantha :0)
