Christmas Cards for copics!

Have you found out yet about this great giveaway by Charmed Cards and Crafts who have put up 72 Copic pens series A for grabs?


You've got until 14 November to enter here.
I've bought things from them and they are a good store to use.
I don't have any alcohol pens and would like to try them so I've made a total of 3 Christmas cards which is my grand total to date, so I'll probably (you think?)  have to buy some this year!
I've coloured the Santa, Fairy and the stars with Derwent Coloursoft pencils mixed with Derwent inktense pencils.


I used a coloursoft pencil in Soft Pink (C170) to colour her wings then used Sakura quickie glue pen with Glamour Dust in Crystal which has come out really well as pretty shiny wings.
You can also get Glamour Dust in Gold which is also excellent.
All the lovely background papers for these cards are Dovecraft Let it Snow 8"x8" pad.



These two were inspired by Peet a fabulous card maker with a very distinctive style of layering with die cuts and chipboard shapes. I'm guessing she also has a Cricut machine as well as Nesties to get all the shapes she does.




Get yer Christmas stamps out and have a go, it's a random draw.
I like random draws, they take the pressure off.
No performance anxiety required.

Love the rich colours on these gorgeous cards Gini - my favourite (of course) would have to be the beautiful fairy with the sparkly wings, especially as you have Glamour-dusted her!!
Have a great weekend - Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx

You know, there doesn't seem to be anything crafty that you put your hand to that isn't fabulous! I am not kidding, you inspire me BUNCHES!

BTW, I don't see here where you have touted your publication in a magazine!!! Can I still say I know you AND Jana? You two are getting pretty famous!

Love these cards and three is perfect - one for me, Jana, and Electra! You can make more if you like (tee hee hee)

Love the mix here - whimsical and romantic. Beautiful colours (see, I spelled it right for my UK friend).

Hi Gini......now you're just making me feel guilty. I've been so lazy recently; I really must pull my finger out and take on your challenge.
Your cards are fab; I especially love the third one. You can't beat a bit of mistletoe at Christmas.... :-)
