Top tip Tuesday 22/1

Welcome to another Top tip Tuesday. It's our lovely Lisa M. that is hosting this fortnights challenge. 
The theme is :-

Lavishly Luscious Layers

Our sponsor are :-

Here is my card. I have one of Bugaboo's images 'scene it bear b'day'
This is a fun image. I just had to make it bright and cheerful. 
I have decoupaged the image (hard to see in the photograph). The papers are Christmas selection from Dovecraft, and that's my tip, Christmas papers are not just for Christmas. I love this warm and cheery combination.

I have also used Promarkers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nesties, Stickles and Dovecraft brad, Woodware circle punch and corner punch.

Pop over to see the other team samples for inspiration.

It's been a snowy day, but fortunately it is not lying too much here. 
So keeping warm what else to do but make a card!

This is another clean and simple card. I was lucky to win a prize on Charisma Cardz a few weeks ago. I won Washi tape from Freckled Fawn. I have never used this before, so it is a first!

I used an embossing folder, Sizzlet heart , Nestie circle and a Papermania stamp.

It's still freezing, but a least we have no snow yet. 
My card is quite fitting with the weather in parts of Britain at the moment. 

This is one of my Christmas cards this year. I took inspiration from one of Samantha's cards here

I used Spellbinders snowflakes, Craft Creations paper, Nesties, Woodware snowflake punch (small snowflake), Fiskers small circle punch for spots and the rest from my stash.

Single layered card

I hope everyone is keeping warm. It is bitter here just now and I am lucky to be in the house nice and cosy. 

It has been a while since I have managed to make a card for the Less is More challenge. So I have made this card using their theme of Sports or exercise. 

I have used Penny Black Teed Up stamp, coloured with Promarkers, and added chalks to make the sky. A little doodling brings it all together.
