Winter Wonderland

Just had some fun with the new sleigh template from CardMaking Paradise : it can be used as a stand alone card, a 3D card or a topper.

The challenge at The Stampman is : Emboss It, so this is perfect for the challenge.

I tore white paper to simulate snow drifts then covered the edges with white UTEE to look like snow, I love the way the UTEE made the edges curl, gave it dimension. For the sleigh I used Vintage Photo ink over embossed cream card for wood effect. For the body of the sleigh I used my Hougie board to add more lines to an embossed cream card, I was after creating a padded look to the body. I used PVA glue for the studs. The posts were made out of sticks from a well-known supermarket café (used for stirring tea) a Die-namics Fishtail die was used for the sentiment flags. Finished off with snowflakes.

Here is another use of the template!!

I covered some burgundy card with clear sticky back plastic to give a shiny metal look and cut the base card from this. I used Antique Linen Distress crackle paint for the body of the sleigh and then covered with Vintage photo ink. I was after an aged leather look. I cut the top trim from an antique gold card edged with Vintage Photo ink; the studs are PVA glue covered with Vintage Photo. I wanted an old brass look. I used a Die-namics Fishtail die for the tag. Finished off with acetate snowflakes.

Scrap Box 1

So I am on a mission to use all those sraps of card and paper I cannot throw away, so here is the first of my creations:

The challenge over at Just us Girls .... 163 is a colour palate: so I thought this would be perfect for this challenge.

I used Die-Namics dies throughout, the swirls and text are cut from a verdegree type paper and I love the way it changes in the light.

In The Pink

Punches or/and Dies is the challenge at In The Pink

As you know I have been obsessed with making baby cards due to me expecting 2 new grandchildren, one is now 4 weeks old the other due in 2 weeks, so this is the card I would like to enter into this challenge:


I used Spellbinder dies for the heart appeture and sentiment. Sissix sizzlits die for the pram. I used 2 pink distress inks to highlight all the edges. I love pink!!!!

challenge 44.... make an embellishment

The challenge at PanPastels is to make an embellishment, so this is my entry:

The first embellishment I made was this tag made from a sticker and further embellished with lace and a button.

I love the way these hearts turned out, I hand cut 2 hearts, stamped onto one and added a button on the other, I then took a nail file and distressed them.
