Shhhh - its a secret

The clocks have gone back and the nights are drawing in, all signs that Christmas is getting closer. I've been making Christmas cards and this one is for the MDUC challenge - to hide something in your creation.
This card uses glitter Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams 2011 collection. The tree is from Stained Glass Christmas by Chocolate Baroque. Colouring is done using pro-markers and Distress inks in Old Paper and Dusty Concord. Dies are by Marianne and Crealies.

Punchy Halo Tilda

There is a new challenge at MDUC to use punches and dies in your work.
I've made this card using Halo Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection, colouring her with pro-markers.

Decorations are a mix of Spellbinders and Marianne dies and floral punches. I really enjoyed making this one.

Fat Robin

Well I did manage to make a card this week and who could fail really when you have such a beautiful stamp to work with.

This is made using the gorgeous 'fat robin' themeplate from chocolate baroque. I've put crystal glitter on the leaves and holographic glitter on the snowflakes. The robin himself is decoupaged from a second stamping on centura pearl card to give him a bit of a sheen. I resisted the urge to put gems in the centre of the snowflakes but I'll probably make a second one with gems and compare them later.
