Mulberry Christmas

Morning Peeps!
How are we all today? I hope all is well - it is too cold here in Newcastle I don't like it! I have the heating on and lots of layers an I am still feeling freezing!!

Well I am here today to share a card I have made today with the gorgeous Mulberry Wood Christmas kit, God knows how I have any of this left as I just LOVE it!!!
I used a 5 X 7 scalloped bard base.  I added silver mirri card and a blue card from The Mulberry Wood paper kit.  I embossed some white card with a Nordic Christmas embossing folder.  I added the Santa image - I added LOTS of Stardust Stickles to this image.  I added a greeting and then I added some die cut snowflakes and I finished with LOTS of jewels.

I decorated the inside of the card to match.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:
The Winter Wonderland Challenge - Poinsettia or Snow is falling.  I opted for snw is falling (obvs!!)

Christmas Wishes

Afternoon Peeps!
How are we all today? I hope all is well.  
I am officially back from the best holiday EVER, sorry if we're friends on Facebook and I've bored you silly on there!! I just couldn't help it LOL

But today I am here to share a card I have made with a gorgeously cute Barkley Stamp.
I have used Neenah dessert storm kraft card, I made the card base with this and then I stamped the Barkley image onto the same card.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.  I went over the fur trim on the hat and over the top of the snowy ground with a Clear Spectrum Sparkle pen.  I colored the falling snow with a white gel pen.  I die cut the image with a stitched rectangle.  I then used 2 sheets of Christmassy paper with a larger stitched rectangle die.  I added a scalloped border and some green ribbon.  I stamped a Christmas greeting and I added this to the card with 3D glue gel.  I then added a green bow, I die cut some snowflakes and added them to the card and I finished with some reg glittery enamel dots.

I decorated the inside of the card to match.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for Wishes
The Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Christmas/Holidays.

I am off to catch up on some TV I've missed while I've been away.

Lovebirds

Hey Peeps!
I am back again with 2 cards to share using the Lovebirds Create-a-Card dies.

My first card is a stepper card, made using the Create-a-Card card blanks.
I used silver glitter card from the luxury card collection with pastel core'dinations card.  I embossed the core'dinations with the embossalicious floral frenzy folder and went over this with broken china distress ink.  I die cut the lovebirds and some flowers from Sara signature collection, while the card was still in the die I went over the die cuts with distress ink.  I added ribbon to the card and the lovebirds to the card.  I added the flowers and I cut some leaves in silver glitter card.  I added a bow, a die cut sentiment and finished the card with jewels.

For my next card I used the lovebirds with the gold luxury card collection and I added the with love Create-a-Card sentiment.
For my card I have used kraft card, gold mirri from the luxury card collection and ivory centura pearl.  I cut the lovebirds and the sentiment into ivory centura pearl I then layered this onto gold mirri card, then onto kraft card.  I added the ribbon and bow.  I layered this to the card front and I finished with some jewels.

I would like to enter my stepper card into the following challenge:
ABC Challenge - S is for Shaped Card.

I am trying to get through the Walking Dead before it disappears from my Now Tv box - I've got 10 days to get through the end of season 5 and all of season 6, and I go on holiday on Sunday so I dont really even have 10 days!!! Wish me luck!!! Have a FAB Wednesday x x x x

Tea Party

Morning Peeps!
How are we all today? Have we all enjoyed the extra hour in bed? I still got up at 7am so I didn't LOL but at least I can make the most of my day off!  I am officially on countdown now - only 7 days until I go on my holidays! So I am MEGA excited  :)

But today I am here to share a card I made with the gorgeous new Create-a-Card dies.
For this card I used the diorama kraft card blanks.  I cut the Tea Party Create-a-Card die into the card blank, I used gathered twig distress ink over the die while it was still in the card. I added ivory centura pearl behind the diecut.  I used the matt gold mirri card from the luxury card collection to make a border for the front of the card - and I cut the gold hearts from the die and added them into the die cut.  I used Sara floral dies in ivory centura pearl, matt gold mirri and kraft card, I added enamel dots to the centres and I finished the card with pearls, a "Happy Birthday" die cut and lace down the side of the diorama card.  

I think my card is more of a coffee party in these colors rather than a tea party LOL!!

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:
Cute Card Thursday - Lace and or Pearls.

I am off to catch up on my Hollyoaks and maybe start on my packing!
Hope you all have a FAB Sunday! x x x

Country Garden

Evening Peeps!
How are we all today?  I hope you've all had a great day. 
 I have been to work but now I am at home feet up on the sofa watching X-Factor.  

I am here to share a card I have made using the new and utterly gorgeous Create-a-card dies.
I used the country garden die for this card.
For my card I used the new easel card blanks too.
I used the create-a-card die and went over while the die was still in the card with milled lavender distress ink and then I sprayed with pearl diamond spry and sparkle - I made 2 of these.  I layered them onto lilac core'dinations and then onto the easel card.  I used the grand floral flower die from Sara' English Country Garden Signature Collection.  I colored them with milled lavender distress ink and pearl diamond spray and sparkle too.  I added lots of jewels to the top and bottom panels of the card and in the centres of the flowers - I just love jewels!!  For the stopper I used a plain and scalloped circle die cut which I added with 3D glue gel and a die cut "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:

Well I am off to enjoy my Saturday night in-front of the box! Have a FAB Saturday night and I'll see you all tomorrow!! x x x x

Tis the Season

Morning Peeps!
How are we all today? I hope you're all well - I am still resting my ankle as they can't decide whats wrong with it, minor injuries called me back after re-looking at my x-ray and I now have a fabulous massive black moon boot to wear!! Fingers crossed it comes off nice and quickly as I am off on my holiday of my lifetime on the 6th November!! :(

I am here to share a card I have made today.  Newcastle is very foggy and it is making me feel very wintery.  I also have made hardly any Christmas cards so perfect motivation to get started!
For my card I have used Core'dinations grey card with Neenah white card.  I embossed the white card with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, I used a Tim Holtz circle diffuser to leave a part of the white card blank so I could stamp Skiing Edwin in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers, I went over the snow and the snowflakes and Edwin's fur trims with clear Spectrum Sparkle. I added some grey snowflake ribbon and I stamped the "Tis the Season" in Memento London Fog ink.  I added lots of jewels!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The ABC Christmas Challenge - U is for Under the pile
I can't remember the last time I used this poor Edwin stamp!! :(

Winter Wonderland - Frosty or Well Wrapped Up
I went Frosty colors Silver/Grey White and Ice Blue

I am off to see what else I can craft up - hope you have a great day!
See you all soon!! x x x x

Pretty in Pink

Afternoon Peeps!
How are we all today? I hope all is well.  I've had a little accident.  I tripped and fell at the beginning of the week.  I got checked out and they think I have a slight fracture in my ankle- it's so sore and swollen so I am currently resting from work. At least I have Youtube and Hochanda to watch to keep me entertained!!

I am here to share a card I have made today :)
I have used the Die'sire Floral Garden Create-a-Card die.
I made a 6x6 card from Centura pearl and I layered Core'dinations pastel pink card with silver glitter card, I embossed a piece of white centura pearl with the Florabunda embossing folder - I added some pink ribbon.  I added the Floral garden die cut in centura pearl - with silver glitter on the back.  I added this to the card with 3D glue gel and onto the flowers I added pink jewels.  I added a pink bow and I finished the card with pink jewels in the top left and bottom right corners and a "Happy Birthday" sentiment die cut from Core'dinations card.

I have decorated the card inside to match.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenge:
Allsorts Challenge - Pink October

I am off  to watch some more TV - or Youtube LOL

You Only..

Afternoon Peeps!
How are we all today? Sorry it's been a while since I've posted but life has just gotten in the way - as it normally does!! Been pretty manic the last few days so I can relax now.

I have made a card today, and I would love to share it with you :)
For this card I have used pastel Core'dinations card with white card.  I embossed the white card with the Florabunda embossing folder.  I used a floral oval Spellbinder die with a plain oval - I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I die cut the flowers from Sara's Floral Delight collection in white and Core'dinations card and added jewels to the centers and to the top left and bottom right had corners.

I'm thinking this might be a good card for a friends birthday - what do you think??

I am off to try and catch up on The Blacklist as the next one is starting soon and theres too much TV to keep track of I got lost :( Enjoy the rest of your Thursday! x x x
