CCT#392 - Things with Wings

We have some beautiful creations from our Design Team this week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog and we've got a great new sponsor My Besties with a fabby prize up for grabs.

I'm afraid it's THAT time of year when those of us who make our Christmas cards start the annual slog lol!! Admittedly, I've made a sum total of 2 so far but it's a start right?

This cute little chap is a Hero Arts stamp that I've made into a robin red-breast. I think I may be using him a few more times this year as I think it's quite effective. The background cuts are various Nestabilities and the branch is by Die-Namics. The little charm is by Stampin' Up, as its the "Noel" die-cut sentiment. I made the embellishment with ribbon I bought years ago from Ribbon Oasis and berry stems and trim from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.

CCT#391 - Chocolate!

It's time for some chocolate this week at Cute Card Thursday and we are being sponsored by the fabulous Whimsy Stamps so it's well worth popping over and checking the challenge blog out!

I've used PaperArtsy stamps for this card. I started by colouring the background card with Fresco Finish paints and stamped with them. A bit of Chalk Fresco Finish on the spots I wanted blank and I stamped the image and sentiment with Ranger Archival. The oval swirls and heart are by my fabby friend Darcy UK for PaperArtsy. The beautiful flower was made for me in a swap.
