Hold Onto My Heart

Good Afternoon, My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Well sorry to say the weekend is nearly over but at least we have the sun
shining here today, although it was raining this morning but now
blue sky.
Had a lovely afternoon yesterday with Mary (my cousin) we went to
the Papercraft show at Leigh and had a lovely time.  I had my photo 
taken with Robert Adams ( do like his dies and Cd's and have been a fan
for some years). Spent more than  intended but that's what happens
as we all know.  Bought some stamps and watched the demonstrator
doing her work and when I came home I had a go and to my
surprise I have actually created a scene, so happy with it and
it will be on my blog probably Tuesday.

Today I have again used a Whoopsi Daisy image.

DETAILS

1. Card base is 5 x7 and I have added a pink satin card
that I have embossed with Diamond effect embossing folder 
that has little hearts in in, (sorry its not very clear).

2. Before the embossed card was adhered to the card
I took a piece of white ribbon and wrapped around
to form the crossover effect.

     3. The image is from Whoopsi Daisy and I have coloured
    her using Spectrum Noir Pens.  Once the colouring
    was complete I die cut the image using Spellbinder
   Nestabilities Labels Twenty Nine and placed onto
the card at an angle.

4. The design has been completed by using flowers from
Sweet Lilac to which I have added pink pearl gems, also
pink pearl gems added to the ribbon and a white bow
added to the centre from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today and that
you will call back and leave me a comment, as it
really means a lot to me.

Well that's all for today my friends
As Always

Hey Girl

Good Evening Everyone,

How are we all today? well what a day its been with this weather, I was
at mum's today doing her housework and when  I got there  the weather was
sunny, so out I went to peg out the washing, it had only been out about
half a hour when it started raining ( you know the type of rain that is
very fine but wets you through) well my little legs  ran into the garden
to bring it all in. This went on for a couple of hours, washing out, washing in
in the end I gave up, brought it home shoved it in the dryer.

Today's make is using the new Sassy & Classy Cd, hope you like.

DETAILS

               1. Card base is made using the new Easel Card Die from Ruby Red
          Crafts and is a joy to use, backing paper also from the  Cd.

2. The image was printed off the Sassy & Cassy Cd again
               from Ruby Red Crafts and I coloured her with Spectrum Noir
Pens.

           3 I then die cut the image using Spellbinder Grand Labels 4 and
          also using the same die cut another label in black card.  The
            two dies were then put together at an angle and adhered to the
easel card.

    4. Using white card  and a Tonic flourish die  I cut one single
  flourish and with red roses from my stash used these to
complete my card.

Well that's all for now my friends

Reindeer Delight



Good Morning, My Craft Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope you are all well, looks as though we might have had some rain in the
night (how unusual ) and cannot tell what the weather is going to do
today just have to wait and see but no matter as its Thursday and
my cousin Mary will be popping over for some crafting and chatting.
Not seen her for over a week as she has been away visiting friends,
so hopefully lots to chat about.

Today I have decided to give you all a treat, Yes Its Another Christmas
Card ( now contain yourselves).


DETAILS

1. Card size is 8 x8 scalloped edge and to this I have added
a piece of bronze mirri board which I embossed first with
a snowflake design (sorry its not showing up very well )
Before sticking down onto the card I wrapped a piece of 
mint green ribbon around and tied into a knot bow.

2. I used  the Tattered Lace dies for the reindeer and the
globed reindeer  and cut then out of mint green glitter card.

3. The sentiment was die cut using Robert Adams dies
again using mint green glitter card.

Well my friends, that's all for today, off the take Oscar

Winter's Evening

Good Afternoon, my crafty friends, followers and visitors

How are we all today, weather not been to bad managed to get my garden done
and boy does my back know it.
              I told you the other day that hubby was taking me out for the day and would 
             not tell me where, well I can tell you we went to Quarry Bank Mill in Styal
          Cheshire ( it's about 40 mins drive from us).    If any of you are watching 
          The Mill on Sundays thats the mill that its based on and some scenes have
       been filmed there, mostly where the machines are.  We has a super day 
and its a nice place to visit, lovely gardens, nice cafe and the weather 
 was kind to us, what more can you ask for.

Well today I thought I would share another Christmas card with you again
using the Tattered Lace window Die (I do like this die)

DETAILS

1. Started with an 8 x 8 scolloped edged card to which I have
added another piece of card that I have embossed with a snowflake
design.

2. To enhance the snowflakes I have used Pinfliar Buff-it in Silver.
Before the panel was mounted onto the card I took  a piece of
tartan  ribbon and wrapped it around.

3. Using red mirri board I cut out the window with the Tattered
Lace Window die, I then took a winter scene from Robert Adams
CD Christmas Trees cut it down to fit behind the die then
adhered it to the card.

4. The pointsettia was cut using the Spellbinder die out of cream
centura pearl card and glittered (although its not showing up)
a red gem was added to the middle.  The flourish was again cut
using the same centura pearl cream card and also glittered.

  5. To complete I used the Tattered Lace Winter Wishes die for the
           sentiment  and  added another piece of ribbon that has the greeting
 Merry Christmas printed on it.

Well my friends I am afraid that is it for today, hope you enjoyed 
your visit.

Until Next Time

Who's A Pretty Girl

Good Afternoon, My crafty friends, followers and visitors,

Hope you all had a good weekend and got to do what you wanted?. 
Today's post is stamping, again using the digi designs, Whoopsi Daisy that
 I won the other week.  I must say I think I am improving (if only
a little ) and am determined to get the techniques if it's the last
thing I  do.

I have done three images over the  weekend and will show one each
day (don't want you to get too excited  all at once), although not so
sure about the last one, might leave it off, anyway I will see.

DETAILS

1. Started with a 6 x 6 scalloped edge card to which I have
added a patterned  paper from my stash.

2. The image was printed onto card stock and coloured 
using Spectrum Noir pens and cut out using Spellbinder
Die Labels Eight, before removing from the die
I used Tim Holt's distressed ink  Dried Marigold 
round the edges.

3. To complete I added ribbon and flowers down each 
side of the card and a Birthday Sentiment from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will
call again soon.

Until next time, as always

Ready to Dance

Good Afternoon, My crafty friends, followers and visitors,

Not much been happening today, doing housework, washing then spent a couple
of hours in my craft room. I have had another go at colouring and although I am
putting it on my blog, I am not very happy with it. 

I cannot for the life of me get my colouring anywhere near most of you guys
and for this I apologise.   The image is one of a set of three images I won
the other week over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge and they are Whoopsi Daisy
digi stamps.  Believe me no one was more surprised than me, so I  though
better have a go  -  please be kind with your comments, I know its not brilliant.

DETAILS

1. Card base is 5 3/4 square and I added the backing paper from
my stash.
2. The image I coloured with Pro-markers then die cut it using 
Spellbinders Majestic Labels Eight. I then distressed around 
the edges with Tim Holts distressed ink(Dried Marigold).

3. The image was then mounted onto gold mirri card, before
adhering to the card I took another piece of backing paper 
from my stash and placed onto the card at a angle, then the
image was added again at an angle.

4.  The flowers were die cut using Spellbinder Blossoms Two
out of spotted paper from my stash and I added a blue gem
to the centre of each one.

I will be entering this into the One Word Wonder  Challenge
over at Mad Crafters Gigglers

OK folks that all for today

    then cut round the design and stuck to my card using foam
 pads to give some dimension.  I placed red gems onto to
tree to give some definition.

   3. With the mirri card again I embossed it with a lattice embossing
folder and then created the corner, again I have added red gems
to enhance it.
