A Glittery Gnome


I decided to make another card for the Christmas Kickstart challenge "The Midas Touch"using my L'll Gnome die from Simon Says, I think he looks cute with his glittery gold hat. The Background embossing and Merry Christmas frame are also by Simon Says. I also added some shimmery stars for some extra sparkle.

Its been bitterly cold here in Dorset and I am staying inside in the warm , have a great weekend.

A touch of gold!


I am keen to play along with the Christmas Kickstart challenge again this year as I got really behind with my cards last year and it was a bit of a panic to get them all made.  
This months theme is "A Midas Touch" and as I still had all my Christmas card bits on my desk before the big tidy up! I got to work and made this really simple card using dies and an embossing border folder.

I embossed the dots border folder along the side of the card base and then added some snowflakes using Simon Says dies, I added the gold glittery snowflake and some gems for a bit of sparkle. Another card that was really difficult to photograph, white on white is never easy.

I think I am going to be stuck in again today as there is more rain forecast , an ideal opportunity to finish my craft room tidy!

Have a great day

White on White

Happy New Year
to all my followers, thank you for all your comments over the last year, I really appreciate them.

Here is a card that I didn't get time to post before Christmas, its a white on white card using a border dots embossing folder and die cuts.

 First I embossed the base card using a really old dots border folder, then I die cut lots of stars, some in card and some in some off white patterned paper. I then pop dotted and glued the stars to the base card adding some silver gems for a bit of sparkle.  The sentiment is hot foiled. It was difficult top get a good photo of this one as the light wasn't great and white on white is always hard to capture.

The weather here at the moment is really wet and windy so I have spent the morning giving my craft room a long overdue tidy up.  It looks so much better !

Have a great week
