A silver Christmas

I'm pretty pleased with this one, it just seemed to flow from start to finish :) Self explanitory really, all silver, and I couldn't tell you where the papers come from because they were either given to me or I bought them so long ago I don't know where they're from!

Thanks for looking!

It's been too long but I was trying something new...

This is my very, very first Magnolia card.

What I used
paper - no idea, it was given to me by a friend
Edwin - pro markers, Sakura pigma paint pens
embellishments - from my stash

This is the 2nd one I've ever made. Not as good as any of the ones I've seen on blogs around, but I am missing some of the most important stash ellements! Prima flowers being the most important :)

What I used

Same as above!

I really am trying with my limited resources :) Same as above for how I made it

Now, the one below doesn't match entirely but it's got my first bow on it! and I'm trying out adding buttons. And I stitched around the stamp with some varigated thread. What I used is the same as before :)

If anyone can help me out on the next question please leave a comment and the answer :) The white highlights I see on some Magnolia cards, how are they made? You know the ones on shoes or hair?

I've really enjoyed making these and am hoping for some lovely co-ordinating papers and Prima flowers in the next couple of weeks as I have a birthday coming up :)

Thanks for looking :)

Some Christmas cards

I'm getting into stamping, but don't have that many stamps or inks so I'm learning bit by bit. I had a go at embossing onto a card, but didn't know what to do about a backer so I did it straight onto the card, hmmmm, not sure, I like the over all effect though. It's holly embossed in red and gold with a merry christmas ribbon down the side and gold christmas trees .

Then I tried something I've been thinking of for a while. I've had one of those 10m ribbons used for wrapping presents. I love the colour of it, being made of a dull paper. I stuck this all over the card, then embossed gold holly onto green card before finishing with a topper. I added Merry Christmas on the same green card and attached with stars.

September's ATC

It has the title of 'In the garden' The backing paper has flowers and a leaf design. I stamped and embossed a 'rose' in red and smaller 'roses' in silver which ended up looking like shimmering rain. I added a leaf and rain drop gems. I quite like it, but I'm not sure about it....
