Christmas market photo

Here I am ready and waiting at the Christmas in Europe market last night. I met some lovely people. Guests could sit awhile and make a small card with me. Thanks to everyone who visited. Merry Christmas.

Small Gift Tags

The day of the Christmas market and my table at this market has arrived, it is a twilight event and is called a European Christmas. I have made cards (birthday, thank you, friendship and of course Christmas), 2012 mini calendars, and gift tags and cards. Here are some of the small gift tags I made - I used Spellbinders Scalloped Tag die (the largest die, you get 3 in the pack) and used many fun techniques to create the tags. Thank you for looking. Enjoy your day.

Cards for kids

I don't normally do kids cards, my nephews and niece are well past the kid age, so as I was making cards for a Christmas table I will be having shortly, I decided to make some non-Christmas cards and I have made some cards suitable for kid's birthday.
Over a year ago, I purchased these adorable rub-ons from Kaszazz. I little hint - I rubbed the images onto a sheet of plastic (you know like those we used in the 'old days' for presentations on the overhead projector) and then cut around the images. Thank you Danielle for this hint. Look at the little monkey, you will see that I was able to put him hanging from the ribbon. For the faux grass I stamped images onto green card and then snipped away very close.

Candle Wrap

I have been asked to create some candle wraps for soy candles that come in a glass container. This is my first effort - what do you think? There are 3 of the birds around the wrap. I have created the flower stamping on vellum, using scallop punch, distressing around the edges, scrunching and finally putting a brad in centre. I like it.

Thinking Paris

I am thinking all things Europe at present - why? A couple of reasons, but the first one is that I am having a table at a Christmas market in the next few weeks. It has a European Christmas theme. Okay, so this is not a Christmas card, it is a Thank You card as I have made some non-Christmas cards so that I have a range of cards for sale. I have been in a distressing (as in ink/paper distressing) mode recently and this card uses Ranger Distress Ink. I love this Stampin' Up! (r) stamp set that is now retired I believe. Some lace and ribbon from my stash add to the vintage feel that I was wanting. Off now to make some similar birthday cards. Have a great day everyone.
