Back again!

Oooooh where to begin??

Firstly, it has to be said.. I'm hating the new style Blogger - what's with changing things when the old stuff works so perfectly in the first place??!!

Oh well... today, I just wanted to share a little card that I've made for my demo's this last month. I'm really loving the Tulip Christmas range, it's so fresh and young looking - but suitable for that contemporary and traditional look too - see... it's red.. and green.. but has the pale blues and violets too!


For this card, I opted to use the decoupage pack - fantastic value for money too! Isn't she the cutest.. but guess what I like the bestest? Yep, you guessed it - the little doggy. He soooooo reminds me of my Mr Scoobs too.


The spotty paper that was in the pack is what I've used for the chopped up ovals at the sides, but I've taken a white gel pen and drawn across the spots with a ruler to create a little grid. I then added glitter glue to each dot (time consuming but soooo worth it!)  and finihsed it off with a few diamante papermania stars around the scallop edge. I love these gems - so different to the plain ol' round ones too!

Here's the gridwork in slightly more detail.


I'm also going to pop on another quick card, as I was asked to show it ... so here you are Jill - just for you. One of the acetate cards I did at the demo on Saturday.


The background on this one was created using the new fabby Artiste dye based inks - they mix beautifully to create a multicolour background. I used the same colours to stamp the baubles, then used clear embossing powder over the top to give them a little depth.

The stamps for this card are from the Home for Christmas range from Docrafts - it's lovely!! Loving the fonts on the background and the Nordic designs of the baubles. The holly stamp is awesome! One of my favourites me thinks for this past month - such a chunk of a stamp, but it stamps beautifully and fine!

Hope you like the cards for today - I will be back tomorrow with more ... they are finally edited, cropped and brightened, so ready to plonk on my page.

Ok.. now off to see how this posts....! I think I'll wish me good luck..........
