I remember wearing shoes like these  (Many many moons ago)

Oval Tattered Lace.. "Shabby Offset Oval" around this I used thin strips of foam tape and adhered to a plain oval, cut from the same die set.

Sentiment ..Stamps By Me.. "Kind Thoughts" I have shadowed with sandy gold and black.
Layered onto black pearl card. TL Stitched Border.
Foamiran flower I had hanging around in my bit box..Sizzix ..Thinlets..662425.. Festive Greens.
Tattered Lace.. "Woodside Ferns".this one is very large when cut, so I snipped it into leaf bits.

Vintage Winter Scene

Hello friends and visitors, back too  card making today.
And this is an easy quick make card..Mine was a bit longer as I did some colouring to fetch out more detail.


Decided on a night sky background..My first using Distress Oxide inks and bleach/water mix in a spray. I die cut post it tape with small circle die for my moon, fantastic tape, brilliant for holding dies in place or die cutting.
Using my distress Oxide inks with a sponge blender onto white card, light spray with my bleach/water mix, removed the circle, coloured with yellow oxide, rather pleased with the result lol.

Made a frame with creative expression square pinpoint dies..this I adhered to the small outer line on the Vintage Winter scene..  using thin strips of foam tape..

I have added colour to the scene with pro makers and before adhering this to my background I added Snowtex paste, as shown. also glittered the hanging snowflakes.

My main card size is 7"x 7".
Finished with a double cut of white & black Yvonne Creations Merry Christmas 

See how easy is this card..

Thank you for stopping by Pam x

Sorry but so hard to take a photo of this Baby Hanger/Mobile.
I have used these New Dies from Memory Box  they are Deep edge cutting dies.
 Feathered friends.

Now I have`nt sewn for years!! most of my stuff I gave away..had to go rooting to make these cute birds.
Stuffing  Old Tea Cosy..New Felt.. New Nightdress for the pink gingham material.. lol

My old sewing machine decided to go up in smoke and all the electric went off ..
I tried to hand stitch around these cute birds!! to painful with arthritic hands!
I resorted to spray glue (from a friend) and some pva glue I had..
Talk about try my patients ..But did`nt intend to pack in..

Made these bow`s with my Bow-it-all.. beads a mix of necklace and pearls for my stick pins.
Hope you think this as cute as me..

Chinese Lanterns, with embossed background.

Good morning friends and visitors, sharing my DT post from  Poppystamps blog

 I have created  an open card  with  "Hello" sentiment, which you can personalise inside with a greeting.

How delicate are these pretty "Chinese Lanterns" from Poppystamps.  I have placed them onto my embossed background. this is framed with a  frame I found in my bit box.
How I created my embossed background..using "Brilliant Leaf Frame".

Card size 6"x 71.2" I taped this in ran through my die cutting machine! using a silicone/rubber mat you use to emboss your dies.

This is how it came out of my machine. I decided not to add any colour! as I wanted my Chinese Lanterns to be the focal point of the card.

White cut out of these Chinese Lanterns have been adhered as shown, then I then coloured in each cut out using my Pro Marker pens.

Then I cut these again in green card and adhered onto the whit ones on my card.

Next, my bit box frame I added orange detail with a pro marker, adhered flat to make a frame.  Sentiment also by Poppystamps with shadowed green Hello die cut. Foliage "Perfect Pine Needles", hessian bow cut with "Bow and String" die. added some dried foliage from a tree! no idea what though.

Thank you for stopping by Pam xx.

Pinecone Branch.

Good morning friends and visitors...
Sharing my DT card from   

Hope you are making your Christmas cards! November already..

Quick make card design..using this beautiful Pinecone Branch Collage die.. 

How I created this card to give some dimension, on those Pinecones.

As shown with the Pinecone die in place to cut in my die cutting machine.

I used double sided tape to hold the leaf in place! as this cut out of your card, using a ball tool I pushed the lacy cut out, left picture..  I then adhered brown card pieces over these, again using ball tool pushed against this.

From Poppystamps clear stamps "Little Kindness" CL445.. I used these swirl dash lines in red ink..

Close up of what I was trying to archive,... I cut extra leaf in green card, adhered to the infilled white one, can you see my red dashes! I then used Snowtex paste ..this give a snowy look.

Stamped in red ink.. from Poppystamps.. "Do You Believe" CL456 clear stamps. mat and layer coloured card and finish with a strip of red card with green ribbon. 

Thank you for stopping by Pam xx
