Come Fly With Me

I created this card for the Sassy Studio Designs  challenge forum on Paper Craft Planet where the theme is month was "Steampunk". There were two firsts for me in making this card. First time ever attempting steampunk and first time ever using the Encrusted Jewels technique. Very hard to see all the glitter/mica from the photo but it all worked out ok I think, considering the mess I had everywhere. Next time I think I will premix all the elements before applying to the project.
I didn't have any craft cogs and sprockets so I raided dh workshop and came up with these few. The background was done using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Clockworks, then sponged with distress inks. "Amelia" was coloured with Prismacolor pencils.

Here is close-up of the Encrusted Jewels.

I am also adding this card to the The Corrosive Challenge Blog where the theme is also "Steampunk".

Candy Cane Teddy

All year I have been saying that I am going to get my Christmas Cards done early. Well, so far I have done 1, but with the new releases this week from Imagine That! my task is going to be a lot easier.
As soon as I saw "Candy Cane Teddy" I immediately thought he would look super cute on a flip card.
I used the coloured version but the outline version that you can colour yourself comes included in the set. All I then had to do was add some pretty Christmas paper, also available from the store, some peel offs and voila! my card was finished. How easy is that.
Here are some different views.

The card base was cut with the Silhouette Cameo using  "3D flip swing card scalloped" available from the Silhouette Store.
