LOTV Get well soon!


Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all well! Hope that youve all had a lovely Christmas and heres my opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year! :-)
Here I am with a Get Well card. For this project I used a Lili of the Valley image stamped in Memento and coloured with Promarkers, and Prima Reflections papers. I wanted to keep it relatively simple without lots of embellishments because it was for a male recipient so I made the paper busy enough!

Forever Friends Timeless Gifts


Good morning everyone, and another post! I wanted to create some lasting presents for my friends Christmas gifts and had some plain wooden stars so I decided to play with them. I painted the stars with a basecoat of silver acrylic paint, then covered with Forever friends Timeless collection papers on each side. I then added different Forever Friends Timeless collection images. Lastly I found some pretty ribbon to hang the stars with.

Steampunk Birthday

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with something very different for me-I had a male card to make and thought I would play with my new embossing folder I won from a blog prize and Tim Holtz bits and pieces which I own but don't play with enough! I thought I would try making my take on a steampunk card.
I used Dovecraft textured metallic card, Tim Holtz kraft card, Tim Holtz inks, Tim Holtz stamps, and My Minds Eye stamps, and some lovely buttons my friend Renee gave me :-)
I covered the card blank with TH kraft card which I then randomly inked with TH inks, and then stamped with the MME and TH stamps. I then embossed the brass panel with the folder and placed it on the card. Next I made a border panel with TH kraft card which I stamped with the MME and TH stamps, then inked. I placed a brass border around the greeting which I had also inked with the same TH inks.

Joanna Sheen GDT 'Christmas Wishes' Project Two

Good evening everyone! Here I am with my second project for the 'Christmas Wishes' challenge at Joanna Sheen's new challenge blog.
For this project I used House Mouse stamp from the Singing Angels set coloured with Promarkers and Sakura glitter pen, HOTP papers I got free with a magazine, Glitter strip, 'Christmas Wishes' peel off, Card Candy, Christmas tree wire, Gold wire, Beads, Bells, and Star buttons.
I formed a circle with the Christmas tree wire and fastened it by wrapping Gold wire around it, which I then added beads, star buttons and bells to to look like a decorated wreath. I then used Aleens Tacky Glue to affix it to my card over my House Mouse image. I then added the Music notes paper as a border along the bottom where I placed my greeting and card candy. Lastly I placed a glitter border along the centre of the card.

Joanna Sheen GDT 'Christmas Wishes'

Good morning everyone-I am so so so excited to share the new challenge over at Joanna Sheen's fantastic new challenge blog and show you my project for my Joanna Sheen Guest design slot too :-) Our theme this month is 'Christmas Wishes' so please come and join in-its perfect for your Christmas makes! 
I just wanted to say I am so grateful to the team at Joanna Sheen for giving me this wonderful opportunity, I appreciate it very much :-)
I made an easel card with a drawer and a matching gift bag, details below :-)
 For the easel card with a drawer I used a House Mouse image from the Singing Angels rubber stamp set available at Joanna Sheen's store here. I coloured them with my Promarkers and very carefully cut round them with a crafting knife to show the papers as the background. I used a gorgeous set of HOTP papers I got free with a magazine for these projects. I also used Papermania capsule collection jewel brad for my drawer handle, Card candy, Green cardstock, a gorgeous chipboard greeting that matched with the House Mouse image and some lovely christmas ribbon from Kars.
For my gift bag I carried a lot of the same products to it so it matched the card. For this image I used the House Mouse Winter Rubber stamps Candle set available here. I also coloured my House Mouse image with my Promarkers, but also masked it and made clouds around him in the tree to make him more realistic. I added Glamour dust to the snow so in  the light it really shimmers. I added a 'Merry Christmas' chipboard greeting.
