Happy Christmas





Hi ALL
Here is a project i have made for In2craft DT  to show just one of the new Phil martin collage  stamps.. You will not find better prices than here at the  In2craft  facebook page /shop for all things creative expression and more
You will be amazed. The stamps have been featured on hochanda  a couple of days ago as a one day special.They stamp beautifully too
 I used the stamp to create the background for this card .I stamped it onto ivory card using Red  brilliance ink and my Tim Holtz stamp platform.
The die i have used is Called Eve .l cut from Kraft card.The die is  made by creative expressions and was part of their festive launch . I do think it will be an all year round die as the pattern does not scream Christmas at you so making it very versatile .
The  handmade flower was made using 0.6 foamiran from Crafteezee. 




I also added berries that i bought from the works and  to which i had added some glitter to frost them. The banner was cut using a Stampin up die. It made a nice change to make a Dl card instead of my usual 8x8 cards.

Wishing you a Happy Birthday .





Hi
It is time for the new monthly challenge over at Craft-DeebowZ. where as always the theme for the challenge is Anything goes with a handmade bow.
The sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps  The lucky winner will recieve 4 images of their own choice as the prize
For my DT project i have used the sweet image called Girl balloon and you can find her HERE
I coloured her with promarkers. 



The embossed background was created using an 8x8 crafters companion embossing folder with a musical pattern and some Kraft card. The  spotty papers were from Lidl ... The hessian was from the works .The organza red ribbon came from a previous  monthly  ribbon stash from my Craftdeebowz boss.
The stamped sentiment came from In2craft and it is by creative expression as part of the Big ideas set .The flowers are from wild orchid.

The heart always finds it's way



Hi
Here is funky card and matching gift box i have made for The  In2craft  facebook page /shop   DT. They have some Xcut dies coming into their store at fabulous prices so get over to  In2craft  and save yourselves some money on these x cut dies.
I have made a stepper card using a presscut die  for this project and have used the die called The heart always finds its way which i cut out once in pink and once in black [which i shadowed behind the pink]  for extra pop . the rest of the card was simple matting and layering . I added a little ornate heart die cut from memory box with a heart charm and bow . The charm was silver but i coloured it black with a sharpie to match .The red heart i have inserted back into the die shape was covered with glossy accents .




The box was made in black card stock and then i copied the design from the card to complete the set . I like the simplicity of this card ,leaving the die cut to make the statement ..
