A Couple of Cards

Hello there...
 
I've been missing for awhile I know... Just busy with other things as I'm sure many of you are this time of year.
 
I have a couple of cards to share that I made, this time using DP and digital papers... 
One is a Christmas card
 
 
I rarely use DP but I really like this one... It's from a pad I got at AliExpress and it needs very little else to transform it - a few sequins, a scrap piece of a glittered wreath and an embossed sentiment
 
 
This next one is probably the last of those gnomes, though I can't promise you that... It's a birthday card for my nephew who celebrates his birthday quite close to Christmas
 
 
I used digital papers from The Lovely Studio and ran the white CS through first to get a silver grey checked base card and then printed the star design onto another piece of white CS and stamped on it. 
 
 
It kind of looks blue here but it is grey... The lighting is not good to take photos given the weather
 
I think I'm all done with Christmas cards now and need to get my head into birthday card mode... I mean even this looks Christmassy doesn't it? Not that he'll mind - And I really need to start getting things ready for Christmas mailing...
 
I promise to catch up with you all soon... And many thanks to the team at CAS Mix Up for the mention this month
 
Have yourselves a great day

Oh, my word, that paper with the deer is gorgeous! It's just what you need for quick cards, but you dressed it up exquisitely, too. Just the right bit of special touches. I can never get tired of grinning at your gnome cards! That's a cute one for a near-Christmas birthday! Lots of possibilities in digital papers. My printer is an ink hog and unreliable, tsk tsk. I do love it for printing digis, though. Two fabulous cards today, Ros!

Yes it's a busy time of the year. Great DP's Ros and they sure do make for quick cards. The first one is stunning and the second one is fun and a great idea for a Christmas Birthday x.
So well deserved with the mention over at The CAS Mix Up x.

What beautiful cards Ros! The first card is absolutely gorgeous, love that paper and how you dressed it up with your glittered wreath and sequins, and an adorable card for your nephew, with that cute gnome and digi papers. Thanks for sharing Ros, you always inspire me with your creations. Have a wonderful weekend!

That deer paper is gorgeous! Now I really want to know your opinion. LOL There are my branches again too. Two treasures my friend.

such pretty Digital paper Ros, I've never used it but now really interested. Well those gnomes OMG so cute. I'm glad we got to see all of them, perhaps in the new year I'll pull mine out :)

Your 1st card is absolutely BEAUTIFUL Ros...how simple to print it out and then just add a few embellishments!! And your gnome card is absolutely ADORABLE...LOVE it!! :0)

Two beautiful QCAS Christmas card designs, Ros. I love the DP with the beautiful Winter deer scene. Adding your sentiment and bit of wreath were the perfect additions.

Your nephew will love his cute gnome. You made the digi paper special by adding the stamping, sentiment and gnome. TFS both cards, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

Sue Lelli said...

BOTH are FAB! I'll have to say I was a little bit jealous when I thought you painted the first one! Now I just have to be jealous that you are so Clever!

BEAUTIFUL!

Great use of the beautiful DP, Ros! The glittered wreath and the sequins make the perfect embellishment for the card. The gnome birthday card is so adorable. Love the cool gray checks on the card base!

I love the dp you have used Ros which has such a pretty scene, and the added die cut, sentiment and sequins finish it beautifully, and what a gorgeous birthday card using on the sweet elves, and the starry background with your stamp branches and sentiment look great. x

Greta said...

That paper is stunning & adding the glittery die cut is perfect! Super cute BD card! I do love those branches! You've been on my mind, sweet friend. Wishing you & your hubby happy holidays!

Kathy Krug said...

So different but both great designs. I love the background you created for the deer card.

What a lovely pair of cards Ros and I love that you used gorgeous papers. I have such an enormous stack of them but they are rarely used and I must make a resolution for next year to pull them out more. I hope this isn't the last we see of those cute gnomes!!
Hugs

So much catching up to do... yes, that gnome birthday card does look Christmassy - you could just send one card for oth occasions? Love your use of the DP on the first card, it's a fabulous creation!
