Hello again
Still on the subject of Christmas I made this very sparkly card following a tip from a fellow team member Amanda of The Craft spa
I rubbed versamark pad over the lower side of the emboss folder and ran through my big shot before adding iridescent ice emboss powder and heating you can see a better picture of the result below.

Loving my Christmas crafting at the minute so be warned expect more lol

WOW Monday again!
I have had such a busy week last week and am sure this week is only a little slower :0)
I have been playing around with ideas for my Christmas stamp a stack in October so sorry for bringing the subject of christmas to the forefront of your mind but preparation for me is the key!!
I saw something like this on Pinterest - another guilty pleasure of mine its amazing how quick the time goes when browsing it!
I used the woodland embossing folder and sponged some colours on to the trees, dotted large and small snowflakes falling about and added some coloured twine and a flurry of wishes embossed snowflake and simple sentiment.

I also added some gems dotted about as you can never have too much sparkle.

Good afternoon all
Well yesterday I had a fantastic day at Southport Airshow...a little too much sun my face will tell you - very red but fab day!!
Onto crafting as that is what I will be doing inbetween swims today...swim 9-10 and then again 4-5 so the afternoon will be spent catching up on all things including crafting :0)
I made this card for a friends mum and its very simple but so cute.
My clouds are made by punching the tree builder punch and using as a mask and just ponging around to make lovely fluffy clouds one of which includes the sentiment.
My grass is using the fringing scissors and was so quick to do same as with the washing line posts made from colour me irresistible DSP's.

Good Morning crafters
Well onto my one sheet wonder or rather my half sheet wonder - same principle but I just stamped and glittered half a sheet of soft sky using the flurry of wishes set.
I stamped the snowflakes in lost lagoon and island indigo and added some silver embossing onto the black above.

Silver thread for some detailing behind the sentiment

And below you can just get the glittery effect that was all over the large flakes...feeling festive with some sparkle!

Happy crafting

Today I wanted to show you another make from my open house recently. I used the leaves from amoung the branches set and stamped my background paper in some lovely autumnal colours
and simply added some twine, some little pearls and the gorgeous autumn greeting.

A very cute card to send along with some autumn treats.

Hi all
I needed to make a card for a patient as 90 years old needs to be celebrated and so turned to my mds, now I know this is not available anymore but still wanted to show this as love the way it turned out.
I did add some gold glimmer paper to bling it up and my patient was over the moon that we made him a card! I am sure he had a very happy birthday.
I also made a quick card for my friend's little boy who turned 1 yesterday too.

Love his little picture done into the submarine sooo cute.

Vincent had a fab birthday even if he was a little flummoxed as to what every one was doing in his house lol.

Hello crafters
I have been  absent a little this week and wanted to explain why...I am undertaking a mammoth challenge of swimming the equivalent of the English channel! That's 22 miles in 12 weeks, 1507 lengths of my local swimming pool so as you can imagine I am swimming a lot of my spare time away but still crafting as often as I can.
I actually had a open house over the weekend and just wanted to check in and let you know what I have been up to.
Here is a quick peek at my display table please forgive the bad picture but the weather was torrential rain so light was terrible!
One of my favourite display samples is made with the Amoung the Branches bundle- fantastic value for money and I just love the trees embossing folder.

 I love Autumn! the colours in nature are amazing.
that's it from me

Today I want to show the fab little gift bag I made for my open house display.
I love the 'amoung the branches' stamp set where this fab autumn wishes sentiment circle came from...its lovely and the set is full of a mixture of stamps for autumn, winter, Halloween and Christmas! Love it!!
My colour combo is Cajun craze, old olive, tangelo twist and soft suede.
Added some natural twine behind the sentiment and some tiny pearls are dotted about.
A peg sponged with Cajun craze for a closure and its ready to be filled with something lovely.

Very cute I think.
Off to work now hope you all have a good day
happy crafting
