Our Home

Evening Everyone

How are you all?

Not a nice day today weather wise, we have had rain all day.

I thought I would  show you a card I have just finished using one
of the digi stamps that I purchased from Image That with
my $10 gift voucher that I was lucky enough to win from
Deborah Artliff earlier this month.

I have three images in total and will showing the others
soon.  I decided that I would go totally different with
this image and use it to create a New Home Card,
what do you think?

DETAILS

1. Using an 8 x8 card I matted it with blue card and then
backing paper that I got from the internet.

2. The image was printed onto super smooth and then
        I added Tonic Nuvo Crystals to the fur. I then fuzzy 
cut the image out. I have adhered to the card with
      foam tape as I wanted then standing proud of the card

3. Tattered Lace sledge die and Tonic die for the 
sentiment Home Sweet Home.

So there you go, Hope you like

Here is my card, using Paper from the  Merry Christmas
Paper pack
DETAILS
1. Card has been made by using the Tattered Lace Notched square
dies and I have used the  next size down to cut the gorgeous
Merry Christmas paper.  I just love this paper the colours
are all fabulous but this one I think is my favourite as I
love the delicate pink.

front of the card.

pale lilac card. Once cut I adhered it to some silver card
added glitter and then adhered to the card using foam

For A Friend

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

Welcome to my second blog post of the day.

Today we are starting our new 
challenge  # 208  over at :-


The challenge theme is

Something Beginning With F

and its been chosen by Michelle

I have chosen to use an image from the cd

Everyday Occasions
(The title of the image is A Friend Like You)

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store




DETAILS

1. Card is 8 x8  and I have made it into an easel card.
I matted it with peach coloured card from my stash .

2. The backing papers are part of the set that go with
the topper.  I just love the bottom paper as it really
does look as if you have folded the paper but in
fact it quite flat.

3. The panels were cut also from peach card and using
the Sue Wilson die Striplets - Radiance.  I then
adhered them at the top and bottom of the card.

4. The topper was mounted onto foam tape and
adhered to the card. Sorry I could not get an
better picture of the topper as its very cute
as it depicts a little bird sitting on a washing
line of crockery and the sentiment reads
A Friend Like you is a Special Gift. This
is one of the ways I have used the theme as
the word Friend beginning with F.

5. The stopper is also another of the same
topper only this time it is in a oval shape.
Again using peach card I die cut the frame
and mounted the topper onto it, added foam
tape and adhered to the bottom of the card.

To complete I have added flowers down each
side of the topper. This is my second use
of theme by using flowers.  I also made
as small bow using peach ribbon and
adhered to the top corner.

So there you go, hope you have enjoyed your visit
and thanks for calling

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

How are you today?

Today I have two blog post to share with you all.

Welcome to another challenge
over at

The theme chosen for this month is 

Christmas In July

We Have New Challenge Blog Rules, so please Note:-

Also Only Two entries are allowed, unless you have used
a Whoopsi Daisy image then 3 entries are allowed
==============================

Hope you will pop over and take a peek at what my team

My card has been made using the topper

  from the Celebrate With Ruby Red cd

 and digi  images just by clicking on the link
HERE.


DETAILS

1. Started with an 8 x 8 white scalloped edged card and
matted it with  Christmas backing  paper, from the
Christmas collection by Lozzy.

2. Next layer was an oblong piece of mint card but before
I adhered it to the card I added the white patterned
border die across the card.

3. The topper was printed onto super smooth and is
pre-coloured. Using the SB die branching out I
die cut the topper. Once done it was then adhered
to the green card. I felt nothing else was needed
on the topper as she is such a beauty.

4. Using the SB poinsettia dies I created the poinsettia
from white card and used the Tattered Lace  Christmas
fern and Holly leave dies to create the foliage from
mint card.

To complete I added a white and silver paper bow
from Craftwork Cards.

There you go, my first Christmas card of the year
and very pretty she is too, if I say so myself.

My card has been made using the image Maggie Mayhem
and you can use the link HERE if you would like to

DETAILS

1. Using an 8 x 8 card I matted it with black card.
 Next layer is patterned paper from my stock.

2. Again black card adhered to card and onto this I
matted with backing paper taken from the Cd
Fairy Cobblers by Magik Graphics, I think its
a perfect background for this sexy little number.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth and
coloured with my new Derwent Colour Soft
pencils, first time using then and I must say
I ams quite pleased with result.  She was
then die cut with an oval die and before
removing from the die I inked the edges
using T/H Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
To add a little extra to the image I used
black pen to create the faux stitching.
I then adhered to the card using foam tape.

4. The bike is made up from peel offs and
I decided to put all the bits that are usually
left out back into the bike to create a solid
bike.  The sentiment was computer generated
and die cut and again scattered straw was
used to go over it.

To complete I added my lilac bow and the
skull and crossbones embellishment.

I do hope you will come along an join in, as
all the team are dying to see you Dark'n'Daring
projects.

Prize 2 Dies that are pictured below



and

My card has been made using the gorgeous Isabella
and if you would like to purchase her, then please

DETAILS

1. I started with an 8 x 8 white card and matted it with blue
pearlescent card. Next I added paper from a paper pack by
Phill Martin.

2. Next layer again blue pearlescent card and another co-ordinating
paper from the same paper pack.

3. I then added blue lace across one section of the card before
adding another layer of blue card that had been die cut
using Sue Wilson dies.

4. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured
with Copic and her wings with Spectrum Noir Glitter
pens.  I then used some Fuzzy Stuff to create the image
that she is sitting on a patch of snow.  For the background
I used blue stickler for the added sparkle.  The image was
then die cut again with the Sue Wilson die only next
size down.

To complete I die cut flowers using the Tattered Lace
small flowers dies, pieced them together and added
blue Tonic Nuvo Crystals to their centres.  With
left over blue pearlescent card I die cut the leaves
again using the Tattered Lace leaves dies.

So there you have it, my take on Winter Blues.
