Sugar Nellie Cards

For ages I have flicked through magazines like Craft Stamper and admired some of the stamps that are out there, and on Monday I spotted some new Leanne Ellis designs for Sugar Nellie. I couldn't hold out any longer, I ordered three and they arrived today. Whilst the kids were happily playing (which is a minor miracle the mood Rosie has been in today) I set to work and so far have made two cards with them.


Stamps used on these cards are "Wish" and "A Little Hug". Wish has been coloured using just distress ink and a little added sparkle to the wings and word, and on A Little Hug I've used distress inks and inktense pencils. I thought that with the simplicity of the illustrations muted tones would work well.




I wasn't going to make my Christmas cards this year, but if they produce a Christmas line like this I may well change my mind on that.

As always, thanks for looking.

These are beautiful and I can almost see the wish one as a Christmas card - the swirl could be turned into mistletoe.
