Card Ideas & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Copy post from the Charmed blog, so apologies if you follow both. Just spent half the day battling other shoppers in the sale and feeling a tad fragile LOL To be honest I hardly bought a thing, but at least I had a look; I'd be wondering what I'd missed if I hadn't. It's MUCH better to shop the sales online - you wont get sick from it either, I heard too many coughs and sneezes out there. I was armed with my trusted anti bacterial gel and used it at any given opportunity I can tell ya!

So, have you all had a lovely Christmas? I hope you managed to take a little time out. It's hard work for us kitchen workers at this time of year LOL

Anyway, I wanted to show you these card I made recently, using one of the image from our latest "Whatever the Weather" collection. Because you colour them in yourself you can match the colours to your card, so one image but three different looks.
  The first card uses: Whatever The Weather Image - Prima Rosarian Paper - Green Pearls - Birthday Rub-On - Prima Roses - Corners cut with a Spellbinders Die - Basic Grey PB&J Pin.

The image ensures you don't need a lot on the front of your card, so very economical. And of course, because the image is printed, it is there for the next time you need it.

 The next card uses the same image - Prima Zephyr paper - Prima roses - Liquid Pearls - Bo Bunny Lace - Prima Chipboard (big rose in the corner) - Prima Crystal Vintage Shapes Key - Basic Grey Brads - The keyhole is Creative Imaginations; it is part of a sale bundle we currently have on offer HERE (VALUE PACK 583888 ) - Happy Birthday Rub-On - Pink Sparkle Cord.

 My last card again uses that adorable image from Whatever The Weather collection - Prima Paper - Happy Birthday Rub-Ons - Heart Crystals - The crystal corner is a Prima SONGBIRD Crystal border (53920) cut in two - present is a rub on then coloured - Prima rose (Sugar Bloom)- Prima Lace.

So, same girl, but totally different on each card.
We would love to see your creations, so if you have used this collection please do leave a link to your card in the comments and we will pop by.


We hope the new year brings you everything you could possibly wish for! See you in 2013!
