Christmas with Nicecrane


I love these Robins from the Victorian Birds design set, they really lend themselves to decoupage

Good afternoon Peeps, popping in to share some Nicecrane Designs Christmas cards which I meant to add to my post on Monday but forgot........nothing new there then I hear you say.

I should also answer a question quite a few have asked me which is how to vote for me in the card design section of the British Craft Awards, I understand it's all done alphabetically so means some nominees don't make it into the listings so have to be voted for as an 'other, being a 'W' surname I am one of those ! But imagine Brenda at Floral Fantasies will work.

I think this is probably one of my favorite Christmas Nicecrane Designs from the Vintage Merry Christmas set

Most of Ignacio's sets are priced from $2.44 to $4.50 and when you consider most have five or six different designs in each they are great value for money and if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make and want to make them all a little bit different they are the perfect solution to your Christmas crafting.

This pretty Christmas Robin is from the Antique Christmas set

Although I am a stamper first and foremost, what I particularly like about Nicecrane Designs sets is that you can make your cards as simple or as elaborate as you wish and also incorporate stamping as I have done in the top card. The card at the bottom of the post which was a recent Penny Black DT piece is another example of combining them with stamping.

This house from the Adorable Christmas set just radiates winter warmth

There are links to all the design sets I have used under each photo so you can pop over to the store and have a browse and there are lots more designs in the Christmas section.

And finally a little collage of close up's.......I created it in Photoshop which I have been playing with this last week, it's slow going but I am determined to master it


Have a good Wednesday everyone and thank you for popping in.
