Phew, I Think I'm Done!

Hi guys

*Warning* - picture-heavy post - a nice cuppa may be required to accompany this one!

Well, it may have been quiet here for quite a few days but behind the scenes it certainly hasn't!

After a few more evenings of printing digis, colouring, accenting, die-cutting and adhering I think I've finally finished this year's Christmas cards.  And I even managed to fit in a visit to our local theatre for Panto last night!

So, here goes...

All of these cards were created using digi images from Pink Petticoat.  I printed them off on A4 sheets, coloured them in, added some accents and used some dies to cut out the images.

These first two batches I quickly shared in my last post but I thought I'd include them again, together with some detail too...

Pink Petticoat - 'Frosty Friends'

Phew, well if you're still with me, thanks so much for taking the time to look.  These digis have been absolute lifesavers for me this year, I had no idea how far behind I was until I added up how many cards I had last weekend.  

Here is the short list of materials used:
  • Digi Images: Pink Petticoat
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers
  • Accented with Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Square Stax and Stitched Rounded Rectangles Stax
  • Card bases and card for printing: Anna Marie Designs
  • 3D foam

I realise these may be too simple for some peoples' tastes but I love how CAS they are.  The detailed die cuts and the shimmer and shine accents add interest and there's tonnes of yummy white space, just how I like them.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Hopefully, once I've got these written and mailed I can get back to creating for challenges, I'm sad to have missed so many over the last couple of weeks.

Hope to see you again soon.

  2. You are too clever Anita. These are fantastic.

  3. Love this collection of cards. Thank you so much Anita, I have just purchased the stamps/digis to do the same for next year. They look brilliant. Cant understand peoples versions to digital stamps, still have to put in the work for the end result.

  4. These are wonderfully CAS and super sweet! And what a lot of work that must have been putting them all together!

  5. holy guacamole, Anita!! You have been so busy! All your cards are simply amazing! I can't believe all the digi printing you did. They are all gorgeous images and you have coloured and blinged them up so well! LOVE all these cards xx

  6. You have been one busy lady with your mission accomplished. Maybe 2015 will be the year I attempt digis we have a new printer so maybe it will work for me. CAS work for me and I love the images and of course the die cut stictched shapes. Happy Holidays

  7. Dear Anita, I can't believe you did all of them - looks like you entered a Chinese sweatshop! My goodness, what an amount of work!!! And I was the happy receiver of one of them!!!!! I did not realize that was a digi stamp - so well done - My mantle looks really pretty now! Those stitched dies look really neat - I may have to make an investment here....That was sooooo sweet of you to send me a card! I still have a big smile on my face! Thank you, you are such a sweet heart! Hugs, Cornelia
