Vintage Christmas

I am trying my hand at vintage christmas cards. I attended a class by Bev and CASED this card. The stamps are Crafty Secrets and the paper by Bo Bunny- Father Christmas. The letters are wooden tags that I picked up at Michaels and decorated with snowflake buttons. I have distressed the image with vintage paper Distress Ink.

Tree Fairy

This image is Tree Fairy by Kraftin Kimmie stamps. The challenge this week is a "Blast from the Past". We are challenged to use the first stamp purchased from Kraftin Kimmie. Although she may not have been my first stamp she is definately one of my favourites. The beautiful butterfly and the leaf scroll are dies cut from Cherry Lyn designs. The butterfly is actually two pieces with the dark purple wings lifted off the page. I found that the dies punch much easier once my wonderful husband brought me home a metal plate that I run through the cuttlebug with the dies. I added additional flora bling and of course highlights with stickles.

Challenges entered:

Sundays with Crissy #21-friendship - fairy and butterfly  -this card is for my friend, Lori

Book Worm

This is my second entry in the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge. It was a bit of a challenge getting the images. Apparently I am one of those that entered my blog address where my email address should be or my address has my blog in it or something like that....anyway I was pleased to get the second set of images.  I chose Jens Digi stamp to create a bookmark.
