Santa's Little Extra Helper no 5: Baubles, Bells & Bows

I've had these baubles done for a while. I punched out circles, drew designs with and embossing pen and embossing them with silver EP. I was lacking inspiration with what to do with them though. This weeks DCM Little Extra gave me the push i needed to do something with them and here's what I did.

Christmas Cards

Well I've been busy busy busy making Christmas cards. Have done about 70 so far. here are soem of the designs I've come up with. I'm going for quick and easy but still with a handmade look iykwim. Anyway. There's no greetings or sentiments or anything on any of them. It's really obvious on some, but what i'm hoping is to semi-personalise them at the craft fair. I'm going to print out loads of greeting (To a Special Friend, To a wonderful Aunt etc etc) and put them on as people buy the cards. If anyone does buy them...

The dove in this is mounted on to silver cardstock where it looks kind of black.

And here is my DCM card for this weeks challenge 'Golden Highlights'

So this week I'd like you to make a card for any season or occasion but must include gold somewhere. It could be a brad, metallic card, heat embossing, ribbon, anything at all as long as it's gold

DCM Corrugated Card Challenge

This weeks DCM challenge is ...

My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...

So here's what I did. Nothing too fancy as i'm trying to make in bulk for a Christmas fair i'm doing soon. Made about 10 of these.
As per usual pic is terrible - I had to scan it coz i don't know where my camera is. The trees and stars around the edge are sequin type thingies.

Well again it's been a bit of a while since my last post.
I've been to NY, and while I didn't get to vist Michael's i had ordered a lot of stuff from the internet and it was waiting for me when I arrived to the hotel.

So here's some pics of my new stash

Alphabets etc.


Cuttlebug dies, embossing folders and punches

Inks and embossing powders

Lots of flowers

Some more stamps, MM paints, Rub ons, Tin for altering, buttons.

Brads and eyelets


AMM Tote-Ally Cool 2

Paper packs

So i suppose i probably didn't need to go to Michael's at all.

I've been busy making Christmas cards too recently. I'm hoping to do a Christmas Fair, but TBH I'm a bit nervous about it. Anyway I'll post pics of teh cards shortly (hopefully)
