Christmas Poinsettia

Hi Peeps..

Today my card is using one of the wonderful digital images from Graciellie Design..  using my Zig Clean Colour markers.  I do like playing with these pens and feel I get good results.

I offset the flower rather than plonking it in the middle of the card.. and mounted on some gold mirri card then a red base.  I did some splattering with my  Kuretake Gamsai Tambi Gold Watercolours..  in real life they look better than I can capture on the photograph.

Finally I used a sentiment stamp - and embossed that in gold too..  

Hope you like my make today...

Christmas Foiled Wreath


Hi Lovelies...

Well something a little different from me today!  I recently went to a paper-crafting show in Harrogate, and was fascinated by a demo there, showing this fabulous technique.  

Of course, I bought the goodies so I could have a play - and I'm loving the result!  The demo was by Sweet Poppy Designs, and here I've used their Christmas Wreath.  They have lots of YouTube videos if you want to see what I saw, and what tempted me so much!  

I  used their Stencil Dimensions Paste in Translucent through the stencil - letting it totally dry.  THEN... the magic happens!  I used their Glimmer Hot Foil in Rose Gold...  placed a piece large enough to cover the wreath..  then popped that in to a folded sheet of copier paper, before putting through a laminator (bought specially of course - but cheap enough on Amazon).  When it comes through, you just peel the foil off to find it's adhered to the dried paste and looks fabulous!

I had some Rose Gold Glitter card which I used to matt and layer - and also cut the MFT Joy word die from the same card.  I layered the word up with a couple of white diecuts behind to give it depth.

It's so very difficult to give you the full idea of what this looks like in real life - the camera in no way picks up the shine that it has.... but you get the idea!

I loved playing - and will be doing a whole lot more like this in the not too distance future with the other stencils I bought! LOL!

Hope you like...

Girl's Christmas Stocking


Hi Peeps...

Well as it's 1st December, there's a new challenge over at the All Dressed Up Facebook page... and the theme is 


Well... you'd never guess what my favourite things are, would you??? OK, OK, I'm predictable!  PINK and GLITTER!  What's not to love??

I used the gorgeous Girls Christmas Stocking for my card - fussy cutting her before adhering with foam pads.  I created the background with my new favourite background stamp - so sparkly and shiny!  I masked the centre panel with shaped post-it tape and ink blended to create the ombre effect, before stamping with Versamark and heat embossing with Sparkling Snow embossing powder.

Card Info:
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangle
Background - Taylored Expressions Twinkle Twinkle Background Stamp
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E0000/000/00/11/04 R20
Hair - E23/25
Dress - RV63/55/17
Fairy Doll Wings - RV10
Shading B60 C0/1
