O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.and thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on the blog post 'I've got buttons but where's Cinderella'.

Yesterday, I decided I was going to clear out my craft room ready for what I will probably be buying over the next few days.  Unfortunately, I got distracted and made this card instead!!! lol


I started with an A5 Easel, the background is topsy turvy card which I got ages ago from Create and Craft.  I stamped the three Christmas Trees with Flitter Glue and then gave them the Indigo Blue Gilding Flakes treatment, using 'Winters Dawn'

I cut out the two ovals using Spellbinders Grand Ovals.  I stamped the sentiment and then used 'Wow' embossing powder and then stamped the snowflakes in the corners and again used Wow embossing powder.

The Tree stamps are Tree Trio, the sentiment is Miracle of Christmas, and the snowflake is the snowflake corner stamp, all from Visible Image.  If you order this week you will get 25% off all their Christmas Stamps with reduced postage and packaging too:

I've got buttons, but where's Cinderella?!

Hi everyone, firstly thank you for all the lovely comments left on my last blog post.  I don't do many challenges, but thought I would have a got at the one over at:

The theme is buttons and bows, so here is my entry:


The pink and blue background paper I bought at the local craft shop, on top of this I put the spiders web which I coloured half blue and half pink.  I stamped the Christmas tree which is the 'Funky Circles Tree', by Indigo Blu.



I cut round it and then stuck the buttons on.  The bows are from Papermania.and the star at the top was in my stash. 

Take care till the next time x

Inspired by Autumn

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  First of all, thank you so much for all the fabulous  comments you left on my last post, it is very much appreciated.

There is a competition over at Invisible Image 'Inspired by Autumn' and this is what I came up with:


The words are:  The autumn leaves drift by my window, the autumn leaves of red and gold.  I think Nat King Cole and Matt Monroe sang it - crikey! that's showing my age!

Here is the link to the competition:
http://visibleimage.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/inspired-by-autumn.html

I have used the Classic Face stamp from Visible Image.  The leaves I embossed with an embossing folder from Sheena Douglass.  I coloured them with Radiant rain ink, and although you can't see it, sprayed some silver sparkle on them from Crafter's Companion.  The background, window frame and sentiment are coloured with Pan Pastels, and the sentiment I did in a word document.

Please come and join in, we would love to see your creations - till next time x
