WHEE......1st Christmas Card

Well.... I can't procrastinate any longer, with four weeks to Christmas I think it's about time to think about making my Christmas cards, so I started with the Skater Girl - 4311 and Whee Wish You - 4718 both of these rubber stamps are from the fabulous Hambo Stamps  and can be found here on their website. I made a concertina style card base, stamped and colored the cute skater girl with promarkers then cut her out, then added fine glitter to her dress. The diecut snowflake border is the frostyville border by Memory Box and I added a few layered up Martha Stewart snowflakes, I wanted to give the illusion that the skater girl  is doing a jump so I placed her higher up on the card. I love it and in real life it is so much more bling.

I have to admit that I got the idea of using this lil inkers bow as a dickie bow tie from a card I saw made by the fabulous Debby Hughes of Limedoodle, and I thought it would be so fitting for the gorgeously cute Cool Pig - 1909 rubber stamp image and Sty-lish - 1922 sentiment, both from Hambo Stamps, which can be found here. I added some gems for buttons and Voila!  Isn't that pig just adorable!!

TLC403 Folded Tree

This week at SCS the Mondays Try A New Technique Challenge is all about making a folded tree out of a half circle of paper, if you use double sided paper you get to see both sides, so easy and yet very effective. the Skater Girl and the "Whee...wish you" sentiment are both  Hambo Stamps rubber images and can be found here.

MOM you rock my world

Well... I have still been playing around with Hambo Stamps rubber image called Globe - 2917 which can be found here. I cut out the world globe and positioned it between two Dienamics die cut M by the letters die cuts. I finished it off with the Rock My World - 2910 sentiment which can be found here.

Happy Birthday Tim

This week the design team at Hambo Stamps have secretly been making cards for Tim, the owner, even his wife Monica was kept out of the loop, so it will be a surprise for her too. As I am on the rubber team for the first two months I haven't used the assigned digi image for this week but instead have used the rubber stamp Cool Pig - 1909  and the Stay Cool - 1516  sentiment. I know it looks like the pig is standing on a tin of paint but it is suppopsed to be an ice cube, hee hee!!. so Tim, I hope you have a very happy birthday, lots of hogs and kisses from me.

I am also entering this card in:
