Woodware Bauble and a LOTV stamp with Copics and Polychromos Pencils

Hi, just a quick post to show you two Christmas cards, but first, I just want to say a massive thank you to all of you who sent me e-mails and left kind messages and comments along with your warmest wishes ...what a lovely lot you are. xxx

Jacqui and Karen your cards are beautiful and will be treasured forever!

The Woodware Bauble card was inspired by a card that Karen (my best crafty mate) received from her mum, Joyce, at Christmas. Joyce  is a very talented parchment crafter, her work is outstanding.

I have stamped and embossed the image with a Versamark pad and white embossing powder on to black card-stock and then covered it with blingy stuff !. It was a very easy card to make.

The other card today is another 'cute' card! The image is 'James with Presents' from the Lili Of The Valley range.
 Stamped using a black Memento Ink pad (the only pad I use with my Copics, as other inks can damage them) and  coloured with Copic Markers then shaded with Polychromos Pencils.

Check out this blog to see 'how to'! The Cats Whiskers brill site! This is my first attempt with these pencils and I plan to have another go later today if I get time!

Thanks for looking today

Be back soon..... Eileen xx

  4. WOW Eileen, thats all I can say having just gone over all of your blog!

    I cannot believe that you have only been blogging for 10mths, your craft is astonishing!

    I love your white space cards and the lovely strong coloured ones as much and then there are your beautiful wedding cards. Oh my, what a fantastic array of beautiful cards you have here. I am in complete awe!

    I can only cooo when I see your Dolly and Daisy as they are simply just adorable and I love following them with OTL on their own blog!

    The cards that really blew my mind are your bauble/bling xmas images as above. I think they look just stunning.

    Now Ive only seen your cards from the start of your blog and not read everything but seeing your quick '10minute card' was such an inspiration to me. Its making me want to go upstairs and get going in my craft room instead of heading into bed with my new issue of Craft Stamper!!

    Thanks so much for sharing all of your beautiful cards with us and I cant wait to see what comes next!

    Keryn :)
