Rosebud (Limited Edition 2011)

I love this limited edition snowlady (JB4206). She's called Rosebud and has been selling fast in our store.To accompany her there's a little flower - Rosebud (P4216) and also a lovely sentiment - Huge Heart F4208-R on clingmount. This would be a great message on a Christmas card to send to the person who does all the organising, shopping and cooking during the festive season (yes, you could send it to yourself!) or anyone else you want to thank at this time of year. Here are the cards
The tree was inspired by one I saw in a Magnolia magazine, it makes great use of your border punches. Simply cut a triangle of card and attach your borders which have been sponged with Tumbled Glass distress ink. Trim the ends off to form the three shape. Crystal stickles and mini rosebuds were then added. Snowlady Rosebud has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with touches of Sakura gelly roll clear star to highlight. A Zig Millenium pen was used for the faux stitching.
Colours used: Promarkers; satin, coolgrey 2 & 4, antique pink. Flexmarkers; light fawn, blue grey, watermelon, aniseed, chartreuse, tea rose, aquamarine, soft aqua, surf blue.
I like the contrast of the violet with red and turquoise in this card and I love the HOTP colorme paper which has been sponged with Broken China distress ink. The stake for the sign was cut from card which was swiped with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks with the addition of diluted white paint over the top. Notice how, as on the previous card, I have added a pattern to her dress with the Promarkers. I think a fairisle jumpber type of pattern would look good too.
Colours used: Promarkers; crimson, antique pink, coral, amethyst, orchid, cool grey 2&4. Flexmarkers: pink pearl, tea rose. Sakura clear star pen for sparkle.
Merry Christmas stamp D2774.
This card uses one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas cards brown, burgundy and turquoise-green to give that shabby chic look. The background uses the new Kraft colorcore cardstock. I've used light fawn and satin pens to colour Rosebud instead of grey.
Colours used: Promarkers; cool grey 2&4, satin, coral, antique pink, crimson, green tea, grey green. Flexmarkers; light fawn, tea rose. Sakura gelly roll clear star was used for the twinkle.

These stamps are not available online but I will be in the shop tomorrow 10am-4pm if you would like to place an order.
