Make a Wish

Hello everybods, hope you're all well.

I made this card for my SIL's birthday, which has now been and gone so I can post it now.  I used Krafin Kimmie's Dandy Lion.  My SIL LOVES dandelions.  She's been coloured with copics.  I added some glossy accent to her eyes and plenty of glamour dust.  The backing paper is Make a Wish from Raspberry Road.  I used a Spellbinders Label 17 to cut the image out and matted it on some brown coredinations CS.  The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I added three little Woodware punched butterflies with some tiny pearls, some handmade gold twirlies, a couple of Martha Steward Branch punches and a couple of the pearly things from my candy win from Claire.  The sentiment is from LOTV, stamped on kraft card and mounted on a flower die cut I had hanging around with a little gold stickles around the edges and that's it.

Pretty in Pink Christmas Angel

Hello all, another Friday flown around already, Christmas is looming ever closer and so today I have another Christmas card to show.

I've used Bugaboo's 'Ava - Mistletoe Fairy'.  She's been coloured with copics.  I cut her out using Spellbinders mega scalloped oval and mounted her on Spellbinders Floral Oval cut out in kraft card.  I'm not sure where I got the white embossed backing paper, I just found it lying around in my Christmas papers bag.  I added a couple of red jewels as the berries on the holly.  I used a Magnolia Doohickey to make the Poinsettia which I cut out in white card, dusted the edges with a little spun sugar distress ink then embossed using WOW clear sparkle embossing powder, then embossed again with clear embossing power, LOVE how this looks, then just added a pearl to the centre.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid with a little star dust stickles on the edges of the petals.  I made some more twirlies, this time using Jones Tones Scintillante Diamntina glitter, they don't look quite as sparkly in the picture as they are in real life.

Just 17

Happy Friday everyone, hope you're all well.  Well Christmas is fast approaching and I still have a mountain of cards I need to make, but for a change I've made a birthday card.

I made this card for my daughter's best friends 17th.  I've used the beautiful Rose Red which was a freebie from the totally lovely Krista Smith at Saturated Canary.  She's been coloured with copics and coloursoft pencils.  I added some glossy accent to her eyes and a few drops of Viva Decor ice white pearl pen.  The image is matted onto plain black cs.  The backing paper is from Imagine DIY which is also matted on plain black cs.  I cut out four motifs from the Spellbinders Parisienne Motifs set and used them to make a sort-of frame.  The clouds are Memory Box Puffy Clouds and the glittery 17 is from a set of peeloffs.  The ribbon is Berisfords from Jaycotts and that's it.

Bearded Gnome

Hello everybods, hope you've all had a great week and are ready for the weekend ahead.

Today I've made a card using Bearded Gnome by VildaStamps available from Live & Love Crafts.  Now this little fella got himself lost in the post and didn't turn up for two weeks.  I think he was off helping Santa.  But he turned up eventually, so all's well!

He's been coloured with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders mega scalloped oval and mounted on a Spellbinders floral oval cut out of kraft card.  The pom-pom trim and background paper (Landstoken Christmas Tree - Teal) are from Live & Love Crafts, the sentiment is from LOTV cut out of kraft card and mounted on a Memory Box snowflake which was cut out, embossed with white glitter WOW embossing powder, had a light dusting of Tumbled Glass DI and them triple embossed with clear embossing power, you can't see very well in the photo, but it looks enameled, LOVE IT.  Behind the snowflake is some pale blue seam binding and fine ribbon from my stash.  I tied a couple of little silver bells onto some fine blue twine and stuck that on top.  The flowers are all Wild Orchid with a touch of Star Dust Stickles and I made little ice blue twirlies from some flowersoft paper covered wire, which I coloured with B00 and then coated in Crystal Art glitter.  I also added one my handmade hatpins.  The pearly things are from the candy I won from Claire (thanks soooo much hun, I'm loving everything in it).  I got a little carried away with this card, but I really love how it turned out.  This card is about to go visit my friend Stephanie for Christmas.  Hope he doesn't decide to get lost in the post AGAIN.

Ho-Ho-Ho

Hi ya, I'm back.  OMGosh, who turned the heating off!!  It was 24° when I left Spain, beautiful and sunny, now my teeth are chattering and I have icicles hanging from my nose.  We had a lovely week and the weather was fabulous.  Here are a couple of piccies...




Anyhoo, onto my card today.  Here's another of my Stamps Happens images.  This one is called 'Ho-Ho-Ho Birds' by the artist Carolyn Shores Wright.  They've been coloured with copics and plenty of glitter.  I love the dead-smug look on the birds face on the right.  The papers are a combination of Craft Creations Ltd and I'm not sure who makes the holly embossed paper.  The ribbon is Berisfords from Jaycotts and that's it.  About as Clean & Simple as I get.
