All Dressed Up Challenge

It's Team B's turn to show off their projects this week for the All Dressed Up Challenge and the theme is

Clean & Simple Christmas

I've used the cute Christmas Postie digi image available soon in the Wendy Burns Etsy shop.

I've coloured the image with Shin Han and Copic pens and added a little frantage to the image. The sentiments are designed by my lovely friend Tracy Crafty. The background has been embossed with an embossing file.

This challenge will run for a month as we are taking a break over Christmas.
The winner will be announced on 16th January and will receive 3 images of your choice from the store. 

There will also be a top 3 announced on the same day.

We would also like to invite you all to join us on 15th January, when not only will we be launching FOUR !! new images (which i can tell you are AMAZING), but also a fab blog hop with some prizes to be won along the way...we will also be introducing some new Dressy Girls !!! So you really do not want to miss out.

All Dressed Up Inspiration Card

Hi been so busy the past couple of weeks I haven't had time to do any blogging.
But today it is my turn to design the inspiration post on the All Dressed Up challenge blog.

I have used a brand new image from Wendy Burns Designs called Fairy Magic. She will be available very soon in the All Dressed Up Etsy store.

She has been printed out onto Papermill smooth white card.
I've coloured her with Shin Hans and Copics and also added a little glitter. 
Papers are from Prima and the butterfly border and butterflies are Martha Stewart punches.

Don't forget our Christmas challenge is still ongoing , all details here.

Papermill Offer

Papermill have a great special offer on at the moment it's White Buckram Embossed card.

A4 White Buckram Embossed Card 270gsm Mega Box


This comes in a mega box, approximately 645 A4 sheets.

This card is of excellent quality and is Buckram embossed to give a lovely book cloth look.

A4 White Buckram Embossed Card 270gsm Midi Box


This comes in a midi box, approximately 260 A4 sheets.

I've made two projects to show off the card.

I've used the Buckram to make my card blank and also embossed it to make the central panel. I then went over it in distress ink.

For this card I've used both the white buckram and also the purple cord card. The stamps are all from Cardio Majestix range. I've added some glossy accents to the baubles and also some snow.

December Daily

This year I have really gotten into Project life (not got round to taking pics yet!) so I thought I'd have a go at the December Daily. I've ordered an Elf on the Shelf but he's being naughty and not coming to the house yet. I think he may have found a girlfriend somewhere!!

Today I made the cover

Photo: December Daily cover done.

Not a brilliant photo but I may redo it if I have the chance.

I used a Snap teal and chipboard binder and covered it with 

Papers: First Edition - Nordic Christmas
Embellishments: Simple Stories - December Documented
Snow Effect: Frantage - Shabby Blue
Brads: My Minds Eye

The charms and corner I found in my stash.
