1st Christmas

How are we all today? I hope you’re all well. For me it’s holiday day today!!
 I am off to Boston, USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ and I can’t wait! 

I have made a card using the Crafters’s Companion Peter Rabbit CD-ROM.
I just love this Winters Tale. 
I printed 2 patterned papers along with the decoupaged image. I layered this onto pale blue glitter card from the luxury card pack. I decorated with a snowflake border and ribbon and then embellished with LOTS of jewels. I added the sentiments “Sons first Christmas” and “Merry Christmas”.

I decorated the inside to match. 
But I left it blank for a special message to be written.

This card is for sale in my Etsy store HERE.

Have a fab day!
See you all soon!! X x x

Merry Christmas

Morning Folks!
How are we all today?  I hope all is well.  Well I am on my day off so I am locking myself in my craft room as I am attending a craft fair on Sunday so I want to make sure I have things to sell.  If anyone is local to Norfolk it is at Lingwood Village Hall, 17th November 10am-4pm.

I am here to share 2 cards I have made for the fair.  I have used my NEW Gemini foil press - OMG it is just my new most favorite thing EVER!!
I have also used the gorgeous 8x8 paper pad from Crafter's Companion.
I have used the Gemini Storybook dies to create the card.  I decorated with the patterned paper, ribbon, snowflakes, jewels and the foiled sentiment.

I made a blue and a lilac card.  I can't decide which is my favorite?
They are complete with stand, and also a box to match!

I would love to enter my cards into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Winter Blues

Fingers crossed they will sell well at my fair!!
I hope you all have a FAB Thursday!!

See you all soon!

Aran for dad!

How are we all today?  Sorry I have been missing in action. I have been preparing for a Christmas fair, doing dt work and I have been on holidays!!!
 But hopefully I am back to posting more frequently.

So the lovely Sara is over in the USA on HSN for craft day. One of the items one tonight is the shaped card bases. I used the best dressed set with paper from the detailed decorations pap with cream card from the neutrals textured pack. I embossed the card with the cable knit 3D embossing folder to make it look like an aran cardy!! 
I added a little stamped message into the pocket. 
How fab are these for those hard to make men’s cards? 

Enjoy your day, I am just off to work, after 2 weeks off wish me luck!! 
See you soon x x x

Have a magical Christmas

How are we all today? I have been in my craft room I didn’t manage to get much done as I kept getting distracted - oops! 

I did make 1 card with the enchanted Christmas collection.
 I am sharing this card today. 
I made a 5x7” card blank from stamping card.  I layered this with silver mirror card. I then embossed white card with the sparkling snowfall embossing folder. I then covered this with spun sugar, picked raspberry, dusty concord, faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress inks. I then went over the card with my new favourite thing - Nuvo glacier paste. 

I stamped and added the die cut sentiment. I added 2 for the fairies which were diecut in the Matt black card. 

I decorated the inside of the card. And stamped  the Sparkle all the way sentiment. ✨

I think this is my favourite embossing folder πŸ₯°

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

Have a fab Friday!
