I made this card last night as I needed to - I used the steam punk embossing folder from Couture that my friend Meg had sent me some time ago, thanks Meg, and used ranger embossing pad and ranger silver embossing powder to add the silver to the image - I spread it out so that it would make a spacey look and I used silver card stock for the gears which were a selection of Tim Holtz and Spellbinder gears. I used a Rivers tag with a silver coin on it and a silver key from my stash with a grey ribbon, and I used a cord tie to add the black pieces as accent. I used white card stock for the actual card and sponged red ink pad on the edges.
II made these two christmas cards a couple of days ago, I found the inspiration on one of Tim Holtz's newsletter showing some of the creations at CHA, I used silver cardstock for the Deer on the first card and in the photo the legs and head have darkened, the flower is a Hibiscus flower from MFT die-namics, and I used twine to acccent at the lower edge of the card. The green paper is a Bo Bunny paper and the back ground is from my scrap box.On the second card I have used the same sketch and made the little village in Black card stock and highlighted it with Kindy Glitz in black opal, and the numbers and letters were made in the same way.

I made these three Christmas Cards yesterday, and I thought I might not have much time for crafting in the next few days, so I made these three. I used plain white card stock for the card number 1, I used Green Bo Bunny "Believe" and Kaisercraft "December 25th"papers and Tim Holtz Mini Movers die Holly and his Reindeer Flight cutting dies and used a Nellie Snellon edge die also I used Vintage Photo ink for the edging of the reindeer with Kaiser basics flat backed stick on pearls.
For Card number 2, I used Kaiser craft "December 25th" paper for the background and used a Marianne's creatables cutting die for the Pointsettia and the lovely corner, I just love these corners, they are so pretty, I used plain red card stock for the edging and the lace across the lower part was made with a Nellie Snellon edging die and the sentiment was out of a Christmas pack. I used kindy Glitz for the sparkle on the pointsettia.

I made this card today as a Sympathy Card for my neighbour who lost her hubby of many years last week. I used plain card stock for the base and used a black and white roses paper from a paper pad from Rosie's Studio "Soiree" and white flowers with pale mauve stick on rhinstones and a black and white ribbon. I hope she likes it. I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge "No Rules"

I made this card for the "52 (Christmas) card throw down challenge", "Anything goes", I used plain white cardstock for the base and used a music score paper and some red patterned paper from Darkroom Door, a white doily and some red sparkly ribbon. I used a Marianne Cutting Die for the green pine leaves and I hand cut the small roses and shaded them with Vintage Photo ink pad from Ranger, I had sone christmas tickets sent to me my my friend Meg and three red stick on pears from Kaiser Basics, and I shaded the edges with a red ink pad.
This is a second card I made today from left over scraps, I used the white card stock for the base of the card with a left over piece of paper from Megs Garden "A Vintage Christmas" paper stack, with a red background and used a Merry Christmas cutting die from the Quick Kutz set "Jolly" for the sentiment and the holly, I used a Marianne die for the pointsettia. I shaded the edges with a red ink pad.
This is today's card, Christmas is only a few months away and I like to get the cards ready as I send out quite a lot. I used white cardstock with Darkroom Door Christmas paper for all the paper elements, the Ho Ho Ho was cut with the QuickKutz set "Jolly" Limited edition. I use this quite a lot with my Christmas cards, I cut the flower and leaves with Marianne Creatables cutting die. I quite like this one.
