Christmas Gifting.

Today I'm sharing a card I've made using this lovely Paper Nest Dolls. Winter Gift Emma  this is the first time I have used a image from Paper Nest Dolls and I must say they are lovely to use.

This image could be used for any gift giving in chilly weather but today I decided to do a Christmas card.

 I've taken a paper from a recent purchase and passed it through a dotty embossing folder, I matted it on to a sparkly green paper and then I cut snowflakes and a corner die from the same paper. I used the same snowflake and corner die and cut it in white. The image was matted on to the same green, then I used a Merry Christmas stamp on a white strip and matted it on to the same green paper which I had cut a Verve Die out of tying it all together.

The image I coloured in using my Promarker pens.

To A Special Friend


Today I'd like to share a card I have made using the lovely Mintay-Dreamer 6x6 paper pad from
This paper pad comes with 4x12 design sheets so it allows you to cut in to them and decoupage up elements. You can see this in the second photo.

I have added flowers, stamens and berries also from crafteezee  along with dots of glitter glue and Nuvo drops in pink.

The card was well received and another has been ordered which I'm happy to do.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have time to leave a word or two as I love to see who has stopped by.

Besties Birthday


Today I'd like to share the card I made for my best friend Sandy over in Florida it's her birthday today.

I have used this cute little Tilda stamp I recently purchased from and I have coloured her in using my alcohol markers. I have used the dies from the Tonic magazine and backed them using the prettiest glitter card from . Because this had to go airmail I've kept it quite flat (I'm sure she understood).

Paper folding

Hi there!

Today I’d like to share a ( new to me) card fold. I have made it for the new challenge starting today over at digichoosday . We were asked to make a Christmas card using any image but it must include paper folding. I decided I wanted to do something different so I searched YouTube for something  new and this is what I came up with.

I yet again went to winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download where I printed off  papers, sentiments and images. I have used all pre-coloured images on this project but everything I have used comes B&W for you to colour too if you so decide.
I have matted the inside and front cover papers on to green shimmer paper from my stash and oh I must add the inside papers are from baked-with-love-paper-heaven-1

Here is a little video of the card opening.

I hope you like what you see and can leave a word or two.  Also do come over and join in the fun with us, for you its anything goes.

Pearl Anniversary


Today I'd like to share a card I have made to celebrate a couples Pearl Wedding Anniversary.

The card started as a 7x7 bright white to which I cut a heart out of the front and backed it with the stripe paper. Then taking a floral paper 8x8 I cut the heart out of the centre and stuck it down covering the front trimming all around.
Then I added a vellum sheet to the front but only attaching on the left side covering the tape with a strip of floral removed from the under sheet.

I added a deep pink sheer ribbon and within the bow I added a wine bottle charm. I then added the sentiment to the top right tucking under a few fussy cut flowers.
The vellum flowers were embossed with sparkle white powder and the stamp is one of Chloe's, I coloured behind with my Copic pens. I added pearls to their center's and dotted white Nuvo drops around. The leaves are from the paper too.

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you like what you see and maybe leave a comment too.

Gift Giving.


Today over at digichoosday.blogspot we are starting a new challenge which is as always Anything Goes.  For the design team we were asked to use an image from the store that incorporated giving a gift but we had to make it in the Christmas theme.

So I chose my image  winnie-bearing-gifts. from the wonderful winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download this is packed full of images both coloured in and not, along with papers and embellishments, the hardest part is deciding what to use!!
Then I decided what to make and for me it had to be a gift bag. I have to say in hindsight I should have gone a little smaller but hey ho too late now.

I've used 3 papers from the kit along with the little image tabs and embellishments. Then there is the image which is as I have already said is Winnie bearing gifts and I coloured her in using my ProMarker pens.
I have also used a couple of stamps from Nikky's polymer stamp set which has a half of a Christmas tree on it. I believe it's out of stock at the moment. I also used 3 letters from Love & Romance scrabble letters. 3 different lace's and ribbons, lots of stickles plus a few other bits from my stash to finish off my project.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you can come over and share your makes with us. A great prize to be won along with 3 DT top pick prizes.

Warm Thoughts

Today I’d like to share another pink Christmas card I have made.

I have used a selection of papers from my stash and on the top one I stamped snowflakes and embossed using a new to me WOW powder. I cut the three trees and raised one putting the little fence in front. The mittens gave me the 2 snowflakes to add which was cute.
The image is Tilda and I've  coloured her in with alcohol markers and dropped some white embossing flakes on top. The little tag is a Magnolia die and the sentiments are by Justrite stamps.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have liked what you have seen today and can maybe leave a word or two.
