A few shapes cut out with my Cameo and covered with Diamond Dust (much more sparkly IRL) to put on the tree as decorations.

I'm going to enter these into the charismacardz challenge which has a theme of NO CARDS this week.

Oh, how I love my Cameo

You know how much I loved my Silhouette, but my new love -  my incredible new Cameo is even more fabulous. And to think I was dithering about whether or not to change my Silhouette and wait until it went kaput to get the new Cameo because I didn't think it would be that much better - how wrong was I.

Here's a couple of cards I made yesterday - very CAS:

This one I used the Print and Cut feature for the sleigh so now colouring required.  I just added a couple of liquid pearls for the holly berries and mounted onto linen card.  The fabulous sentiment is from Pink Petticoat which was printed directly onto the card and finally a punched snowflake.

The next card is a regular cut and I used DCWV textured card to cut the bauble out and added some crystals and some Do-craft ribbon.  Again, I used PP sentiment.

Sorry about the photo, it's a bit blurry - I just couldn't get a decent shot.

I'm off to play some more

Tis the Season

Hi all.  Hope you're enjoying your weekend. Can you believe it's only 3 weeks till Christmas Day?  I'm still trying to plough through my cards so I'm just posting this and then I'm going to turn off the computer and get on with it.

I haven't done many cutie cards recently, but I have this lovely little digistampboutique image which I won in the Charisma Card challenge that I just had to use.

Here's the recipe:

Digistamp Boutique image
Stable and Star - Print and Cut image done with my Cameo
Pale blue card for the circle
Stormy Sky Distress Ink for shading 
Kraft card
HOTP faux stitch stamp and sentiment

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, whatever you're doing.

More Tatty

Another Tatty card - the images are all so cute I'm struggling to choose between them.  I've got another 5 ready to be mounted onto card, so be prepared to be Tatty'ed out!

I used a Cuttlebug folder for the background and stitched around it - not very well I might add, so don't look too

I was intending to go white on white but because the image is quite pale I thought it might get a bit lost so I just added a bit of silver mirri card.  I also used the dotting of Promarkers around the image which makes them stand out a bit more.

Finally, I added lots of Glamour Dust for a lovely frosty look to these lovely little characters.
