Humphrey's Corner Christmas cards.

Hello everyone! I've been busy making Christmas cards to complete orders and I went to my chapel's coffee morning where I sold a lot of cards and had more orders!  Everyone loved Humphrey and The Snowman. 

The cards with the box for tealights and chocolate have proved extremely popular.  I've included photos of two of the cards I've completed.  I've been selling them for £5 complete with an envelobox.  Do you think that this is a fair price?  My customers seem to think this is, but others have said I'm not charging enough.  What is your opinion?  I'd love to know your opinion.  Thanks.

I'm getting organised now with my cards for Christmas.  Nearly finished my orders just need to make a couple of cards for myself then I'm all done!  Christmas shopping though that it is another matter!  I've bought one present so far!  Note to self - must get organised!!!!

Thanks for looking.

I really enjoy making the cards with the box attached for a little gift.  I also make an envelobox.  I've used tealight candles in the first card and Milky Bar buttons in another.  I've also made some with the chocolate Chrismas puddings and Santas. 

I've used the Humphrey Christmas decoupage from the Christmas pack, the sentiments were taken from the Humphrey Christmas stamps, the backing paper and matching insert from the Humphrey Christmas CD, the card is from Crafters Companion - I use either Snow Pearl or Ivory - large sheets usually 16" x 16".  I use the Ultimate Pro to make the card and envelobox.  The only part of the card that is not from Crafters Companion is the gold mirror card and embellishments - bow (made on the bowmaker included on the Ultimate Pro and Anita's Glitter Stick on Peel Offs).

Thank you for looking and please feel free to comment.  I love reading them.

Love Sarahxxxxx

Crafters Companion Challenge 18 - Let it snow!

I have been a busy bee lately making various commissioned cards as well as still trying to recover from the flu and chest infection.  This ME has a lot to answer for it makes every symptom ten times worse!!  I've been having fun making various cards with my Humphrey's Corner Christmas decoupage.  I've decided to enter this easel card into the Crafters Companion Let it snow! challenge.

I always use Crafters Companion products for my cards, though there are a few exceptions on this one! The card is from the Christmas Centura Pearl pack, Humphrey's Corner Christmas decoupage, Humphrey's stamp "Let it snow", My Craft Studion snow and glitter was used, silver mirror card, snowflakes were made using Spellbinder snowflake dies and blue gems to finish them off!

Hope you like it!
Thanks for looking and I look forward to reading your comments.

Commissioned cards

I haven't been able to post any pages for a while as I've been ill with a chest infection and flu.  Unfortunately, with my ME the symptoms are more acute and have been left feeling incredibly weak.  However, crafting has been my saviour!  The beauty of cardmaking is that you can pick up your crafting for a while and then put it down when you've had enough.

I've had a few orders to complete for the month of November which I have completed now.  They are pictured below.  I always use Crafters Companion products except for Tatty Teddy CDROM, Forever Friends CDROM and  gold and silver mirror card!

I adore Humphrey's Corner.  I thought that this would be perfect for a little girl's first birthday.  I used the Humphrey CDROM where I printed out the birthday party framed card, matching backing paper and insert.  I mounted the backing paper on A4 silver mirror board and the card I used was A3 snow white card scored to A4 size. I printed personalised greeting onto A4 printable paper.

The Flower Faeries are always so popular with my customers.  As the young lady's birthday is in Winter I used the Fairyopolis Winter CDROM with the Snowdrop Fairy.  I made the card in the same way as the Humphrey's Corner card the only addition was a cream bow.

Tatty Teddy is another popular character.  This card was made in the same way as the others.  Only I used the Especially For You CDROM .

I thought this image would be perfect for a Christening. I used the original Forever Friends CDROM.  I printed the main image onto printable acetate then sprayed Spray and Sparkle Irridescent onto the rear of the image.  I mounted the image onto cream card and then gold mirror card.  I then made the card in the same way as the other two.

Thank you for looking at my blog.  Please would you leave me some comments as I would love to know what you fellow crafters think.  I'd like to thank you in advance.

Happy crafting.   Sarahxxxxx
