Leaves and Tree

I stamped the leaves with vintage sepia versafine and then stamped the twig tree one of Linda Luckin's designs with the same ink pad. I distressed the edges of the tree paper and inked them. I then added ribbon and a word tag.

Snowy The Snowman

Allison's challenge this week is snowmen and hopefully I have managed this one just in time!
The snowman and snowflakes are Linda Luckin Design stamps. I stamped the snowman in black stazon and coloured his scarf and hat with water colour pencils. I then added some dazzling diamonds from stampin' up. The snowflakes are heat embossed in enchanted gold. Background paper was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.

Non's Boxes

Last time my mum came to visit she bought

two boxes from Craft Central and gave me strict instructions to get them decorated for her! (I'll get into trouble for saying that cause actually she said when I get a chance but that didn't sound as good!!) Lol

So here they are decorated! I coloured them with "cool peri" dabber. The stamped the swirls and leaves and heat embossed them I also embossed around the edges of the lids. A couple of small gems have been added after we had picked them off the floor where I had spilt them Shocked and when I say small I mean SMALL!

More Agapanthus

Another card with my new stamps! This time i gave up with the castaway pad Not Sure and went for some gold embossing instead - thought I might be less likely to set the house on fire that way! Anyway this is the result.

Tuesday, 23 September 2008


I received a package from QVC yesterday - and these are the stamps that were in it. There was also a Castaway ink pad! well I have fought with it and used all sorts of paper and this is the only paper I have been able to make it work on! But I have managed to burn a few pieces Shocked Anyway The background paper has been stamped with this pad - I think it has turned out quite well but don't know which paper to try next.

Snowy Times

I don't believe I'm making Christmas cards so early! For this one I stamped Linda's snowman in black stazon then watercoloured his scarf, hat and nose. I added glossy accents to his eyes. I then cut and embossed a tag and added some dazzling diamonds for that snowy look! The background was made by stamping Linda's snowflakes and heat embossing them with crystal sparkle and enchanted gold.

Blue fish

For this weeks My time to Craft challenge the theme is "Shades of Blue!" I started with my square of blue card then I stamped Lindas little fish with blue stazon! I triple embossed it and added some acrylic gems. Then I stamped another little fish and added dazzling diamond from stampin' up to his scales.

Dragonfly Bookmark.

Another bookmark today this time it is for someone who hinted she doesn't have a bookmark either - but we really need to know what she is using at the moment!!! I stamped this with olivegreen stazon . I added a dragonfly made in acetate with added stickles for sparkle and 3 gems for the body! I edged both sides of the bookmark with gold krylon. A bit of green ribbon finishes it off.

A cute card today! Getting ready for christmas - I don't really think so - not yet! The Tilda image is coloured with watercolour pencils and her fur trim made sparkly with dazzling diamonds.


Another of Linda's designs Dumb this one I felt needed very little doing to it so I kept it simple - I just glittered his wings and tail with dazzling diamonds. The background has been embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
