Here's a Christmas card for today using the gorgeous 'Charming Santa' and 'Merry CHRISTMAS outline word' both of these cuties are currently on SALE but only for 2 more days!!! Check out the Make it Crafty store for all the Christmas SPECIALS!

I did get a little heavy handed with the grey's on Charming Santa which makes him look like he's been down a lot of Chimney's lol.

White/Grey bits - C0, 2, 4

Red bits - R24, 27, 46.

Dimension Dimension Dimension!! Tiddly Inks Challenge #219

Hello :)
Today's post is a Tiddly Ink Challenge post for November and the challenge is all about Dimension, so think pop up makes or using mounting tape or sliders anything that pops out.

I took this pic before I had the candy canes in the chimney, not a great photo but it shows the 'shape' of the card better. 

I got the idea for this card after seeing a similar one a friend had made with the box (aka chimney) with a lid on it which was super cute, she got the idea from a Stampin Up catalog. I adjusted to suit my 'Christmas roof' idea. It was so much fun to make.

I coloured the Tiddly Inks images with Copic Markers

Merry Molly 

Skin - E00, 01, 13

Hair W6, 8, 10

Dress & Hat - R24, 27, C2, 4

Set of Four Christmas Cards - Make it Crafty

Hello fellow crafters :)

How are you going with your Christmas Cards this year?? Can you believe it's November already? Well I've got four quick Christmas Cards that might inspire you to make some homemade cards for your friends and families.

I chose to use these cute little Elves from Make it Crafty

I went through my scrap Christmas papers and found four different patterns then cut them to size, added some distress oxide (Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemon and Peeled Paint) with an ink blender to the right side of the cards then squirted it with a little water to get some texture, cut some green and red plain card stock into strips and placed it on top of the patterned paper, coloured the elves, fussy cut them and mounted them with dimensional tape, glued the Chipboard Words in place and finished the card with some sequences.

They really are quite simple to make, I had them lined up in a production line. So no excuses, I want to see your Christmas Cards soon :)

Knock Knock 2

Hello Peeps :) Hoping you are all well today.

I have another Knock Knock card today for my little friend battling cancer. I hope these cards are giving her something to smile about.

It's a dual DT card using the door from the Balconies, Doors & Windows Elements Collection from Make it Crafty and Monkey Around from Tiddly Inks.


I arranged the door and monkey digital images in Microsoft Word and added the text then printed, coloured it with Copic Markers and sponged some Stormy Sky Distress Oxide around the edges.

Doors - B23 & B45

Monkey - E31, 35, & 57

Vines - YG03 & YG !7

Nothing difficult in making this card but my wish for this card is to bring a smile to a little girls face who's going through things a child shouldn't even know about.

Sending love and healing wishes

 Andrea xx
