Zendangle Tree

Hi all
How is everyone this week? 

 This card I made using the  Festive fir-cones and Zendangles Cardio-stamps and  created a Christmas tree by stamping and over stamping. 
The 'Merry Christmas' die  is from the Find it Trading die range, which I glittered and added some pearl drops too.
The ribbon was given to me by my daughter's boyfriends mum, and I just had to use it as I like it so much.


Its been quite a cold a day here and the cats have been in all day..so that's 3 dogs and four cats.. quite a menagerie but they all get on together really well together. Here's a few photos of them

Walking the dog

Hi All

What a chilly start to the morning we had a really hard frost.
This is another card I created with my card-io stamps. 



I created the hills from a torn scrap of card I used the versa colour ink in yellow and a touch of red ink to create the sunrise and black to create more hills. I then placed the deer and person walking the dog. I used my quickie glue pen to scribble on the hills and sprinkled glitter across the image. 
I really love creating the different scenes as no two will be the same. I created a frame from black card using SW noble dies.

Festive Circle

Hi all
Another card made with Lime tree crafts white topaz card.  This time I masked off the center of the card with a die cut circle. Then randomly stamped the festive fir-cones stamps from Card-io around the edge in a variety of colours. Then I removed the circle and stamped the sentiment from Phil Martin scribbled Christmas verses.
 I wasn't quite sure what to mount the card on to - so as I looked around my craft room I found some glitter tape/ribbon. I glued this around the sides of my card blank and then popped the topaz card over this. I really like this glitter tape it adds a bit of bling without going over the top. 
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Cottage Snow Globe

Hi all

One of my recent purchases is this Snow Globe die from from Find It Trading

 I cut the Find it Snow Globe die out of a great card from LimeTree crafts called White Topaz - I really like this cardstock  and have used it a lot for my Christmas cards this year. It takes ink great even though it is pearlised. 
With this card I shaded the globe with TH distress oxide Tumbled Glass with a hint of a darker blue. 
Once the ink was dry I stamped the cottage and added glitter to the image to create a snowy feel. I added some snow to the sky by picking up some white acrylic paint with my pokey tool and dabbed it on the image. 
To create the background I used a Woodware snowflake stamp using the same blue ink.
I die cut and embossed the sentiment out of sky blue card and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Christmas Robin

Hi All
I hope you are all well and those that have been affected by the storm are doing okay. My thoughts are with you.


I have had this ginger colored card from Limetree crafts in my stash for a while and have been wanting to use for a long time - so here's my first card with it.
Using a bell shaped mask and swept white ink across the aperture. I then stamped  an old Kanban stamp within the bell with black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used Glossy Accents on the beak and colored the berries in red.
I stamped the sentiment in the same white ink and added pearls and a bow as finishing touches. I mounted it on to some Topaz pearl cardstock from Lime Tree crafts.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Festive Banner

Hi all
Another Christmas card for today

Here I have used my new card-io Majestix stamps (Festive Fir-Cones)I created a strip by masking off part of the white topaz card and then stamping randomly along the strip in various colours. I then removed the masking tape and popped the Happy Christmas in the gap which was die cut in vintage Gold card.
A great card for batch making too
Well I have passed my three month probation at my new job - yeah!! 
The job is going well (very different from my old one) and the people are nice.

Thank you for stopping by and any comments you wish to leave are greatly appreciated.
Have a great week everyone.

Purple Sky

Hi Bloggers
Here it today's offering

 I know it has been a while since my last blog... the time has just whizzed by.

I had  a great time at Ally Pally and bought quite a few items. I invested in some Card-io stamps and have been having a play with them so I will be showing quite a few Christmas cards over the next few weeks. 


I used Versa color ink to create the sky. I then stamped the trees and deer using versafine black ink. Once the ink was dry I used my quickie glue pen to scribble glue across the image and sprinkled Glamour Dust over it. 
 I used SW dies to cut the image out and mounted it on to black card to make it pop. I embossed a piece of white card with CE falling snow embossing folder.



Thank you to those who have pressed the button to follow my blog it is greatly appreciated.

Have a great week
