A Christmas collection



Good morning Peeps, I thought I would do an early post to share a few of the Christmas cards I have made with Ignacio's Nicecrane Designs. Whilst I have not been up to holding stamps properly his images along with some dies have been a blessing as they have allowed me to keep creating.


And with Christmas getting closer by the day I have managed to get a few into the seasonal basket in readiness and I would recommend them to all of you who have a mountain of Crimbo cards to make as they offer the ability to create a varied selection of cards.



And a final one.



Thanks for popping in and there are thumbnail links to the image sheets I have used below.

  24. Brenda these are all wow cards! I love how you use these images yet still keep to your style - absolutely gorgeous cards, especially love that last one. I have used one of my Joanna Sheen CD's to make some quick and special cards for my mum to give and I love the fact that I can do that for her at minimal cost and it doesn't take as long as stamping, colouring and designing a card for a stamped image. Very happy I started my Christmas cards earlier this year as I only have a few more to do. Rest well xx

  25. These turned out amazing! Good job Brenda.
    I feel bad cause I have a question, please don't answer until you're feeling better, maybe someone else will help out!
    I wanted to know if the little bows & stars are dies? And from who!

  33. A lovely collection which really shows what can be done using quality images. I love those hanging stars & the way you have used lace or ribbon to embellish. I think my favourite is the arch beacuse of your detail with the lace. I rather like your Santa Claus too - the way that you used trellis work both on the background panel & on the image panel's frame.
    Take care
    Much love

  36. Fabulous Christmas cards Brenda - i love them all!! I have to apologise. I accidentally entered a card into the Allsorts challenge that I published before the challenge went live. Thought I was helping you out with the numbers but just have to get it wrong lol! Anyway, feel free to delete it if you want. I can empathise with having to change crafting methods. I'm no good with scissors any more, but I can heartily recommend the big shot pro if you haven't already got one :-)) Wishing you well and stay safe in tonight's storm. Maddy x

  41. As always stunning creations Brenda! I might just have to give these sheets a try, loving vintage style designs, and with time always running out these would surely make quick and beautiful cards! Hope you'll have a fabulous week!

  42. Gorgeous cards with these Nicecrane designs. The star dies are amazing and loving the antique mettalic look DP notes.

    Looking at this card has made me realize that I should ask my newly retired (and a bit bored) DH to roll some dies off for me. I find turning the wheel on my big Shot too hard when my hands are flared up. I should sit him down with a page of page and a die...one at a time! See, I have solved part of our painful tasks!

  43. All are beautiful but the final one is my favourite.
    Great job.

  44. These are gorgeous Brenda. The images made for very vintage style christmas cards.
