Sparkly Poinsettias

Hi All


 Thanks for popping by today.
I hope you all had a good weekend.
This is the first card I created with the goodies I purchased at Ally Pally last week.
I just love the new Sparkles embossing powder from CE, this one is Ruby Slippers.
The Spellbinders layered Poinsettia die was a bargain at only £5.00.
I teamed it up with another new SW purchase the Bold Snowflake (well it was on my wish list) lol.
The foliage is a combination from TL - Christmas Holly and SW Laurel leaves.
The embossing folder was a freebie a while ago, I have know idea what make it is.

My daughter and her boyfriend returned home from America earlier  it was great to see them. We all had dinner together which was lovely, before they headed home.
They had a wonderful time but are very tired.

Enjoy your week .

Prancing Rudolph

Happy Monday to you all
A Christmas card is today's offering
I had a great day at Ally Pally on Saturday - got a few bargains too, so I'm really happy. Also having a couple of days off work, so I have been playing with my crafty goodies today.
I was hoping to post a card (I actually made three today) that I made with my new crafty bits  but time ran away and the light began to fade as the rain started - I hope to take photos tomorrow.

 This is an image from Polkadoodles I  coloured Rudolph with promarkers and cut him out with SW noble collection the ornate pierced squares along with the classic adorned squares. 



I made the background paper by using CCloud ink (Basil Leaf & Scarlet Woman) over a poinsettia and holly mask then I embossed  the card through with a snowflake mask and rubbed pearl moon gilding polish over the top.
I completed the card with a pearl in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by as always your comments are greatly appreciated.

Another 50th Card

Hi all
Can you believe its been a year since I started my blog !!! Where does the time go?
I made this card for a very dear friend of  mine who will be 50 on the 14th September. She will be celebrating in Sicily on her special day.

 I started by embossing a piece of white card with CE star swirls folder, which I then gently wiped CS Pearl Lustre gilding polish over the top. I hope you can pick this out in the pics.
I cut two strips from an old SB boarder die the Vintage lace Accents, and added to the ends and completed with pearl PVA.
I used the spearmint foundations card along with the white a cut them out with SW Noble dies the Ornate Pierced design.
 The flowers I made with Spellbinders cinch and go flowers. I inked through the die with CS frosty aqua colour cloud from PM. I added some CS Iced Snow to the petals, and popped a pearl dot in the centre  with the CS glue that matches the Colour Cloud.

Fluttered on by..

Welcome fellow bloggers

Here is my offering for this week
 I wasn't quite sure where is was going with this card when I first started it its one of those that happened by items landing on one another and me thinking what if...
 I started with a background I made by cutting into a piece of card 4 times with SW Bright Star Adornment die. I had a glittery scrap piece of card that I really liked but was not sure what I was going to do with it and it landed on top of the other card. And so it began..

 I teamed the Aqua and  brown card together along with the Happy Birthday die from Sara Davies signature collection which I cut twice in aqua and white for a shadow effect and then glittered.
I used SW double pierced squares to frame it  and added Bronze PVA every other pierced dot.
To finish off I added glittered butterfly by SB and a bow with a handmade dazzler.

Bauble Wishes

Hi all

Another week has whizzed by.
As I won some digi images from Polkadoodles I thought I should have a play with them and this is my first card, from the Twiggy and Toots collection.

 I coloured the image with my promarkers and added a wink of stella to the hat and some of the bauble.
I'm not the greatest colourist in the world but I quite liked the way it turned out.
 I used CE Star Swirls embossing folder for the background and highlighted the embossed areas with CS Pearl Luster gilding polish.
I cut an  aperture out of red card using one of SW noble dies from the Classic Adorned set.
The green card is from my crafty stash, along with the ribbon and my handmade dazzler.
