James in Pink!

Hi Everyone

James the bear is my favourite character from Lili Of The Valley and I have made several Christmas Cards this year using him

Here is the card I have made for my Mother in Law this year using James Bear but I got him in touch with his feminine side and gave him a pink outfit!

This image is called James Santa Stop Here and I have coloured it using Copics and Diamond Sparkles Glitter 

I made a 6" Easel Card.  The pink Snowflake paper is from Digi Doodle Studios and you can find it in the Twinkle Berry Winter Digital Paper Pack 

I cut the image out using a Spellbinders Circle Die and then layered this onto a scalloped circle which I cut from a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Die.  I added Lace Borders.  I used the sentiment as the "Stop" and added some punched snowflakes.  I popped on some clear pink heart gems to the centres

Beary Christmas!

Hi Everyone

I think I am just about finished with my Christmas Shopping.  How are you all getting on?

Today I am sharing with you the Christmas Card that I have made for my Husband.  

I do like to layer up an image and I just had to do this with this cute little image called James Christmas Tree from Lili Of The Valley Digi Shop 

I coloured the image using Copics and added Diamond Sparkles Glitter to his hat trim and bobble.  I then layered him onto dark green and a light green card layers.  I hand stamped the "To My Husband" sentiment using a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  The stamp is from Stampingallday

Sparkly Dinosaur

Hi Everyone

Here I am sharing another inspiration for the Pink Gem Etsy Shop 


This gorgeous girly dinosaur is called Sparkle Dinosaur and I have coloured her with Copics. 

I saw a card recently that was laid out similar to this CAS card and I really wanted to have a go.  I love CAS but am not really very good at it myself lol!

I created the pink circle using a Memento Dew Drop ink pad and circle die and I used a Clear Star Gelly Pen to add some sparkly dots.  The verse is hand stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and is from Stampingallday
