Merry Christmas.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..
"Merry Christmas" 
Sharing my post from    Poppystamps blog.
 from  all the Poppystamps design team.. We wish you all a wonderful Christmas holiday.
Quick post as we are all busy for the festive season.

I decided to use my favorite pink colour for these "Holiday Poinsettias"  distress Ink Spun Sugar.

Background created with Memory Box..Open Studio.. Baptisia Collage die.
Poppystamps Merry Christmas Banner,  adhered to Stitched Annaleigh Tag decoration.

I embossed these petals by leaving in the die after cutting, using veramark through the open lines in the die, remove the flower from the die and sprinkle with embossing powder, I used Shabby Pink, heat emboss with your heat tool, next use spun sugar ink to shade.

Layer up flowers, I use pva wet glue! small dot  in the center of the flower after shaping.  Green Pine Twig and pearls to finish.

Make A Wish.

Hello crafty friends, followers and visitors..

Birthday card today.. using Tattered Lace Ornament Label Card Shape, this is the other set from Create and Craft.

Not a quick card to make..unless you use one main shape and not like me!! used two colours.
Main card "Tattered Lace".. Ornamental Label Card Shape.. you can do much with this set you get four different size cards and edges.. 
I scored the main shape at 2.3/4" from each end.. to make a gate fold.. 

To line a card shape you have to cut the inside or it does not fold good with I cut scored 2.3/4" and trimmed a slither of  all the edges.

Tattered Lace Pearl Doily cut one in White and green for a shadow.
Old Elusive images  " Loving Sentiments stamps" still available under new name.

Flowers made with the smallest doily from the set. 
Poppystamps Freida leaf.
lace trim Memory box .Open Studio.. Country Stitches Borders.

A Friend.

Hi crafty friends, followers and visitors.

Been playing with a new Tattered lace die set, from Create & craft.
Festooned Label Card  Shapes.
I wanted to use a edger die as a border around a shape..
This is what i came up with!!!Not sure if it works or not..But enjoyed a bit on me time playing lol.

Card size 7"x 7"  Using Spellbinders "Grand Labels One" retired..White linen effect card..

I started by cutting four end panels from  Tattered lace "Festooned Labels Card Shapes" set.

I glued these to the edges of "Sue Wilson Pierced Square" die..Only half the width on each side.
Top layer  Labels one centre, pierced square outside edge, narrow strips of 3d foam tape to raise this frame up  

Tonic Blossomed Heart Corner ..
also from C/C. 
I cut two , glued together and pieced cutouts back into the heart shape.. added stickles glitter glue in the flowers! hard to see.

To finish Chiffon ribbon bow, Silver  stick pins I made and  Silver Liquid Pearls..Stamp from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by at this busy time of year.. Pam

Wintergreen Border.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..

Sharing my post from blog

Today I am sharing a couple of cards,  White and  Cream both have a touch of colour used on them with distress ink Bundled Sage.

Easy style card to make, using one A4 card blank.. you need  card piece 8" x 5.3/4"..score and fold  this @ 2.1/4".
Next cut two card pieces  5.3/4" x 5 .3/4"  and two @ 2.1/4" x 5.3/4" I embossed these in an embossing folder, inked the edges..adhered to the card fronts, the smaller ones back and front so you are not looking at a plain card inside.

Next cut Poppystamps Wintergreen  Border, ink with green through the die before removing it, then ink the ivy leaves, attach sticky 3d foam tape where it will not show  adhere to the front panel.

I cut the Costello Ornament  Background, I find it easier to colour card pieces in green ink!  then die cut as I have the Lexington Ornament  and Merry Christmas Banner dies.. 
3d foam tape on the back of the ornament solid, adhere the outline ornament onto this.
Next cut the Bow and String die, cut away the lines on the side of the bows and use these as hangers for the bauble.

Finished with few pearls.
Tip! if you leave the 3d foam tape of these cards ..they are flat 5.3/4"  square cards for mailing.. bow is only shaped! no foam tape, is is glued in the centre only.

Hopefully I have now finished my Christmas card makes..

Hi crafty friends, followers and visitors.. cold and frosty start here today! suns out but still cold..

This is my first Snowglobe Christmas card.. 

Made myself a lot of work for nothing on this design! 
I was going for a see through acetate globe.. BUT change my mind I prefer this winter scene on black ..would love your opinions! 

This is the back of the globe not much glitter in the acetate.

I cut two acetate circles with Spellbinders so I would have a  circle to fit the snowglobe. front one has been embossed with dots and white pen.
Using the die cut Snowglobe in white on a fold to make a top opener card.
Next I cut two Winter scene`s Trees coloured with distress Marker "Shabby Shutters"
I cut a spellbinder circle in black, adhered these scene`s ( this is where it would have been see through)  filled with glitter, then I placed in the two acetate circles ..I used foam tape to adhere together. 

Outer Globe cut two..inked in green ink, cut a thin circle in black  adhere as shown.
Merry Christmas cut in white and black to create a shadow when glued together.

Good afternoon friends, followers and visitors.

Winter here today! boy is it cold..

Still playing around making flat Christmas cards..made two of these, lot quicker to do a second card after making  the first!

Finished card size 6"x 6" square. White card coloured with  Distress ink "Bundled Sage".

First time I have used this Winter Border from Poppystamps..available here  

Before I die cut the border I used .  Memory Box .Open Studio . "Country Stitches" along the top card piece.. cut the border and inked through with "Bundled Sage" ink on the holly leaves, removed the die and coloured the rest..

Card piece 5.1/2" square.
I have used Sue Wilson "Noble Double Pinpoint" to make two windows! using the smallest die in the set.. it cut a window 1.1/2" square.. just the right size for Memory Box.. Large Typewriter Uppercase Alphabet set.

Cut a card a bit bit larger than the top the bottom section for the windows and card edges.
Adhere  these together.
Hanging snowflake is by Memory Box " Hanover Snowflake" same snowflake as in the Wintergreen Border!
To finish I used Nuvo  "Key Lime" Jewel Drops..
Do like the delicate colour of this card..
