Hi all, today I have some festive makes to share and enter into some challenges.  My first card features a Bildmalarna stamp called 'snowflake' I have coloured with markers, glittered, distressed the edge and mounted onto a die cut oval frame, the papers are LOTV, the flowers are from one of my many Dreamee sets, the Holly is a die cut from Sue Wilson, I added a stamped sentiment and blue beads in a bottle.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My second card also features a Bildmalarna stamp this one is called 'scarf' I have coloured her with markers, the papers are Bearly Mine, the base card has been embossed, I cannot describe the colour as it changes depending on the way it is displayed, I have had it for some years now, I used a snowflake die and added a red satin double bow
I would like to enter this card into

My third project features a Spellbinders 3d Poinsettia stamp, I was asked by my son if I could make 30 cards, I decided that using this stamp in mono would be perfect, the card is only a 4" x 4" I used Archival black ink to stamp, then mounted onto black card, that is it apart from stamping the sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Many, many thanks for taking time out to come visit

What a feast for the eyes today Lorraine, the first two are so beautifully coloured and embellished but I am really drawn by those wonderful monochromatic Poinsettias, elegance at it's best.

Hope you have a good weekend and my thanks for your very kind comments this morning, they mean so much are a greatly appreciated.

Nearly forgot, many thanks for being so quick off the mark and joining in at Allsorts this week.

Charming little girls, Lorraine! Your first card has the perfect accompanying sentiment - she is definitely happy and cheerful in her snowy, winter wonderland! The SW dies look treat in the corners! With your warm brown and beige tones, your 2nd card is usually colored, and fantastic! I love the matching snowflake and lovely satin ribbon! Your black and white poinsettias are glorious in their detail! WOW! So pretty! hugs, de

Three awesome creations Lorraine. I would have been thrown in to panic being asked to make 30 cards. You have done so well.

I'm always so amazed when multiple cards are shared, and it is _sooo_ hard to pick the one I like best! Love the blues & fantastic coloring of #1, and especially that intricate & lovely lace oval die to show off your sweet image. #2 shines equally with the layers of dies to present this little lady, and the satin ribbon, so rich looking. Adore that wonderfully intricate golden snowflake and the papers look marvelous. The black & white vintage designs on the last entry quite a changeup from the rich colors of the previous cards, but look wonderfully festive and CAS. TFS & Hugs

Absolutely gorgeous cards Lorraine! LOVE the blue tones on the first one, such a frosty feeling that I just love for a holiday creation. Your colouring is freaking awesome as always! The metallic accents on the second one is just brilliant, and the big red bow screams Christmas!! Beautiful design for a bulk Christmas card, simple, yet festive and elegant!! Well done my friend. Hope you have been keeping well, sending hugs :)

Hello Lorraine!! You always make such stunningly detailed designs!! I love EVERYTHING you make! The blue monochromatic design with the added poinsettia and holly accents is very eye catching to me! I love blue and purples for Christmas! Your second card is so sweet with that image and your pretty bow looks amazing as does your copper snowflake accent! Your coloring is always amazing too! And of course the third set of cards are SO beautiful and elegant looking that detailed poinsettia image!! What a great design for Christmas cards!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful post!! :) HUGS

Oh Lorraine, beautiful cards, all of them!

Wow Lorraine this is so elegant. Love the monochrome image and CAS does suit it very well. I bet your son really loved it too. He would have had to pay at least £60-120 for them if he had bought them from a shop. Thanks for joining in with our 'Poinsettia/Snow is falling' theme at Winter Wonderland, and good luck
Eileen :)
