A Little Elf Christmas....

Hi Susan here....

Today we are starting another great challenge at The Stamping Bazaar, and we have another sketch for you to follow.

Full details of the challenge and the winners prize can be found on The Stamping Bazaar Blog, and if you're in need of some inspiration then look no further the design team have given you lots to look at.

Now for my card.....

The sketch for our challenge this time was designed by me!!! I used Bearlymine papers for the background. The edges have all been aged with inks and distressed then glittered with stickles.

This oh so cute image is designed by Marina Neira and is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store, it is called Little Elf with Present. I have used Promarkers to colour the image and then gently inked the background before distressing and glittering the edges then mat and layered onto a plain kraft coloured card.

My flowers are all handmade, the poinsettia has been hand drawn and cut out before layering together then glittering and making some stamen with yellow fluff.

These have been made using a five petal punch, I distressed the edges of the petals before layering together and added some stamen.

My sentiment has been made on the computer. The edges have been distressed and then glittered.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and for all the wonderful comments you leave. They are much appreciated. I hope you liked it.
Love Susan


  1. Oh Mam this card is a delight. The papers and image are gorgoeus but your flowers are just devine. Your Christmas roses (is that what they're called???) are beautiful. The ink on the very edges really make them come alive.
