Autumnal Colours

I needed some more birthday cards in my stash and I have also decided to try and use up some bits from my scrap box so here is the card I created. I shall add it to the Die Cut Divas challenge which this month is anything goes.

I die cut my base blank and then distressed it with a variety of Distress Oxide inks before running it through the Simon Says Spun Glass embossing folder. I then added the Flower Cluster die cut also from Simon Says. 

I routed through my scraps and found these stamped flowers that I had coloured and not used.  The sentiment is hot foiled,  lastly I added the pearls.

I shall also add my card to the Simon Says Flickr Challenge "Stamping"

Have a great week

More Christmas Snowmen!


I had time to make another card for the "Christmas Kickstart Challenge" today and decided to make another snowman scene using the Heffy Doodle stamp set "Wanna Build a Snowman". I found this border snowflake die in a charity shop last year and its so useful.  I cut two one in sparkly PP and another in card which i then layered together.

I then cut the snow background and embossed with a folder I also found in the shop.  The snowman are coloured with my copic markers.  The reindeer is from a really old set from Clearly Besotted.  I layered the frame on foam dots to give some dimension.

Thrilled to have another card in my box but there is a long way to go before I catch up.  I am going to add this card to the LOVE flickr group challenge as well.

Hope to do some more crafting tomorrow as the weather is not looking good!

At last I am Crafting!


After a long summer when I really didn't feel like crafting I think I am back in the groove and have made a card for the "Christmas Kickstart Challenge". The theme this month is "Chillin with my Snowmies!"

 I am so behind with my cards this year and I really need to get moving!!

I distressed a card base panel with Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio Oxide inks and ran it through the Simon Says Faceted Snowflakes embossing folder , then I sprinkled with some sparkly embossing powder and heated.

Next I die cut the SNOW letters using  Altenew die alphabets twice and glued for height.  The snowman and penguin are from the Heffy Doodle "Wanna build a snowman " stamp set.

I am also adding this card to the LOVE flickr group challenge "Anything Goes" and the Simon Says Flickr group challenge "Stamping"

I hope to be back with more cards very soon, in the meantime I have a lot of catching up to do in blog land!!
