With Christmas fast approaching, I thought I’d share with you some of the cards I’ve made in the past. I love using kraft card as a base and I’m thinking of creating this year’s cards with kraft card too.
These three square cards were made using papers and elements from “Christmas Gift” by Digital Anemona; I made the Santa card topper on the central card from a kit “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” by Let Me Scrapbook
The card above (which I made for my parents) was made using “A Homespun Christmas” by Starynight Graphics.
The xmas tree topper was made using a digital stamp by Pink Petticoat called “Flirty Christmas Tree”
The robin Christmas card is made using a digital paper called “Berries” from the “Tis The Season” collection by Pink Petticoat but I’m not sure if it has been retired or not as I can’t see it on their website anymore. The robin topper was made using a digital stamp by Pink Petticoat from the “Bobbing Along” collection, which was adhered to a rectangle of “A Homespun Christmas” by Starynight Graphics.
All the scalloped tags/toppers were made using my Nestabilities dies and my trusty Cuttlebug.
The red twill/ribbon was something I salvaged from a purchase of tea towels which were tied together with this… I’m always on the lookout for “freebies” or think laterally as to how things can be used in my crafting! 🙂
As always, I look forward to your comments and am only too pleased to answer any questions you may have.
Have just made this birthday card for a friend’s daughter, who happens to be like my daughters in the fact that they just don’t like pink! The funny thing is, they’re all “scientists”! My eldest daughter, in particular, went through a stage of she would wear anything so long as it was black! She got past 18 and then began to appreciate pretty things. Anyway, here’s the card:
I just had to add the purple gems to add some sparkle!
- Pink Petticoat’s “Pretty Doodles” pattern (unfortunately no longer available – so glad I managed to get this – it’s so pretty)
- Anita’s gems (Gem Wheels)
- Textured pearlescent purple card
- White 300gsm glossy card
- Tiny flower brads (purple)
- Sakura Ball Sign Tiara Glitter pen – purple
- Font: Janda Quirky Girl (18 today!)
- Printed on my Epson R1900 printer

Well, it’s something to be celebrated… 56 years of marriage! Some would say “I’d have been released from serving a life sentence in jail before now!” 🙂 . Of course, I had to make a card. Happy Wedding Anniversary Mummy and Pop, the most wonderful parents & grandparents xxxxxx!

We had some lovely news on Saturday; my cousin’s son and daughter-in-law‘s son had arrived. It was a real surprise to us as we didn’t even know she was pregnant! The creative juices started flowing and again using Pink Petticoat‘s designs, I made this card…
- 300gsm white card
- Daisy Bouquet paper (white background “Ocean” flowers) by Pink Petticoat
- Matching “Ocean” coloured paper
- Digital stamp “Baby Buggy” by Pink Petticoat
- Blue vellum
- Baby boy face digital stamp on front of insert (sorry to designer – I have no record of name)
If you would like to know how I coloured the baby buggy on the digital stamp, please contact me.
