Two more cards to show....f

Hi all

Happy weekend to you - I for one am so relieved to have 2 days off as been a tiring week for me.  

I have two cards to show you this time (for a change lol) - well i did say there would be more to come!

The first one to show is one for a man (have several of these to make).  The stamp comes from Cuddly Buddly, a new range of steampunk stamps. I love them.  I stamped it using white stazon ink.  I highlighted various areas using a white poly and a gold prisma, tore round the image, wiped a gold ink pad round the edge before mounting it onto another piece of green card.  I then mounted it onto a kraft card blank.  I stamped the greeting using the gold inkpad onto the green backing card.  That's it for the male card and here are the pics.

This has been entered into the following challenges

Now for the other card lol.  I have used this stamp on a few cards now cos I just love it and its versatility.  It is the winter scene by stampendous.  This time I coloured it using muted browns and used glitter for the snow instead of flower soft.  I think I prefer it actually.  I mounted it onto a plum coloured backing card, stamped the sentiment to the side and mounted it onto another kraft card blank.  Now for the pics.....

That's it for today - I think!

Hugz to all and do hope you will back again sometime

New challenge over at ANYTHING BUT A CARD F

Yes thats right a new challenge has started over at ANYTHING BUT A CARD. The theme is OPEN THEME - that means it is anything goes.

I altered an old box base.  On the outside I covered with old serviette to give it the wrinkled look.  I then painted it and used inka gold over the top.  I fixed braid to the top as the hanger bit and also around the rim of box  I lined the inside with black velvet from an old dress I used to be able to fit into lol!

  I had bought an old cheap looking clay mask from a car boot sale. I painted it and then decorated it using broken jewellery, handmade flowers for the eyes and feathers.  

I then stuck the mask to the lining and voila a Hanging box frame.

I must apologise for all the pictures but could not make up my mind on the ones to use for this post.


Why not head on over to ANYTHING BUT A CARD and join in with the OPEN THEME challenge this month.  Happy crafting to you all.

Hugz and love always

Yet another Christmas card f

There seems to be the Christmas theme running continuously at the moment lol.  

For this one I used an Indigoblu sentiment stamp, heat embossed with gold.  Vintage style lamp post stamp (do not know the make) embossed clear over sepia ink.  I then colored it using my polys.  I used white and green flower soft for the snow.  That's that all done!

Now for the pics


Thanks for dropping by - please call in again
