Merry Christmas!

It is Christmas Eve and in Denmark that is the day that all the children have been (im)patiently waiting for since last Christmas Eve. Living in England we celebrate both days, so double the work for poor ol' mum (i.e. me LOL). What better way to celebrate than by giving away some presents to YOU!! We are already giving away every single day on the Charmed Cards & Crafts site, which will culminate in three draws at the end of the month.

Our candy here is for anyone, anywhere in the world. I am going to post the candy later today. In the meantime I want to show you a card made with one the stamps we are giving away (we are not giving away this stamp of course but a fresh copy LOL. This stamp is part of our Mo Manning stamp range.

Simply decorated inside:

I told you yesterday how I chose two designs to replicate and this was the second of those.

Products used:
Mo Manning stamp coloured in with Copic markers and trimmed with Flower Soft Polar White.
Paper is Bo Bunny and Plain Cardstock
K&Co Evergreen tags are on the front and I coloured the edges in red.
K&Co Evergreen Tape also on the front
K&Co Snowflakes
Circles were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies

So pop back later today and add your name to the candy draw.

Noel Peace....

Noel Peace - that is the name of the stamp I used for the card I am showing you today, and I will be giving away one of these in my aforementioned candy.

Once again I embellished the inside of the card. Nothing too fancy but it really makes a difference.

I was running out of time so decided to take a couple of my designs and make similar cards. This was one of them. One of the things that takes me the longest when colouring images is deciding which colours to use, when you already have them in front of you it really does make the process so much quicker.

Here are the products used on my card:
Stamp is Sarah Kaye Noel Peace, coloured with Copic markers
Paper is K&Co Evergreen and Plain Cardstock
Dress it up Buttons Garland and "Rejoyce".
Imaginisce Polar Expression Ribbon
Bo Bunny Bauble Sticker matted on plain cardstock (I've just realised this is one I have forgotten to put on site, I'll link when added).
The "December 25th" is a K&Co Evergreen Layered Tag Accent
Circle are cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies

Thanks for visiting the Charmed corner of the Web :-)

Well if your children are anything like my children then you will be hearing a lot of happy screeches and joyful laughter, as well as Christmas songs being belted out continuously :-) Tis indeed beginning to look like Christmas, which leads me nicely to my card:

Decorating the inside of my cards have become a norm now, I love the heaviness and quality of the card upon completion.

K&Co Evergreen paper, "NOEL" Epoxy alpha stickers, Fa la la la la and chipboard pine cone.
Plain cardstock
Distress Ink
Prima Lace

Nearly Christmas!!

..and it's a whole month since I last blogged! Why is it that all my good intentions last for a precious short time only?

There has been many new scrummy products added to our shop, don't forget to check out the "What's New" page. You can also subscribe to our newsletter and receive updates when new stock/ideas/offers are available.

I want to show you some of the Christmas cards I have made this year, other than the ones you have already seen on the main site. Here is one of them.

Quite a large card decorated inside and out. The gorgeous red poinsettia is Prima Marketing.

Patterned paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses "Rooftop".

I coloured the image with Copic markers and decorated the trim with Flower Soft Polar White. Reindeer on front are Dress it up Buttons. Martha Stewart Rings PATP punch used for the edges on the front. Plain cardstock. Reindeer is a K&Co Evergreen Acetate and the border inside is also K&Co Evergreen (adhesive border). The rub-on inside the card on the circles (cut with Spellbinders dies) is Imaginsce Snowy Jo. I have used red Stickles on the red layer on the front between the two green layers matting the image. You can't see it here because I can't get the light on these dark days so the pictures aren't great.

I will show some more over the next couple of days and on Christmas Eve I will show you two cards I made, and will be giving away the stamps I used in a little blog candy. So make sure you pop back for that. Not only are we giving away the two stamps but we am also giving away some of our new digi-stamp bundles. So if you want an extra Christmas present don't forget to check back :-)
