Christmas is just around the corner -yikes

This is the last set from Beccy's Place I'm showcasing for October - This is one of my favourite plants for the festive season. I know red is the usual colour but creams and pinks are also on offer at the garden centers .I used the design with the Christmas script in the background but if you use the plain background I think this flower could be used for birthdays.

Simple can be very effective and I didn't want to add too much to this lovely festive verse .                                  

Come back in November for the next new releases and see what I 've done with them .

Christmas ? bring it on.

It's not always easy using black  - to define where his flappy little wings are  I used a white pencil to add a little shading. I also paper pieced his scarf and went around the image with a grey copic pen and added lots of glitter.

I used a dark grey for this penguin but it doesn't really work for me - I prefer the black above with the shading. Hopefully this will help when you colour your own images.

Another lovely release from Beccy's Place -  I must confess I haven't played with this set very much but how could you not love this cute penguin . I paper pieced his scarf on the top card and made a gift tag with a sentiment on the back.

Next Friday there will be more from the latest release sets.

Jack - o - lantern

If you haven't got you Halloween  sorted out don't despair these fab digis  from Beccy's Place are just perfect . If you don't have time to scoop out a fresh pumpkin then print a large Jack- o -lantern -carefully cut out the eyes and mouth -stick it to a glass jar with a tea light in the bottom.

New Release set from Beccy's Place

For this card I printed the foliage twice and used foam pads to layer it.

I printed this image and sentiment directly onto patterned paper .

An easy card with a lovely message using an aperture card blank.

Traditional Christmas colours with a hint of gold and glitter.                                                                        

Alternative colours for a festive card - I went around the edges of this image with a pale grey Copic to give a little depth.

For the next 6 months I will be on the design team at Beccy's Place and have the chance to use the great digi sets Beccy creates.
This is one of  4 new release sets from Beccy's Place  which I will showcase in October. The digi images come in black and white for you to colour and pre-coloured  if you want to make some quick cards  (as you can see at the top of this post ). The sets have images as well as sentiments for you to mix n match.                                                                                                                 .

Come back next Friday to see the next sets and the cards I made or just pop over to Beccy's Place and start making your cards today.
