Christmas Hoops

Christmas seems to be creeping up on us fast. I've already spotted so many Christmas items in the shops. Luckily for me, I love Christmas! I love creating Christmas cards and decorations so it's definitely my favourite time of year. I'm sharing today a couple of decorative wreaths that I made...
I used some wooden embroidery hoops to create the shape. I then wrapped twine all around each one. I used a mixture of items from Ross Paper, Anna Marie Designs, The Range and The Works. I wrapped wreath borders around the inside of the hoop. I decorated the edges with snow topped branches, glitter stems and Berries. I added some wooden stars, a bow and some string mini bells. I had so much fun creating these, I will be definitely making some more wreaths.

Cool Friend

Hi all,
Another wet and gloomy day here for me! After having the wedding, I now have lots of people's addresses in our family so now my plan is to send them all cards for Christmas - I am stockpiling! Today's card was made for new brand Strawberry Moon Designs...
I went for a clean and simple look with a splash of colour (pun not intended!). For this card I used the Strawberry Moon Designs (by Sue Taylor) Penguin Pals Stamp Set. I coloured all the images and cut them out. I created the ink splash with Salty Ocean Distress Ink spritzed with water. I embossed the sentiment in white onto black card, which is from the Christmas Sentiment Stamp Set. I added a strip of striped paper and a couple of enamel dots using Nuvo Drops. Strawberry Moon Designs Stamps will be launching on Create & Craft soon but in the meantime you can purchase them on the Facebook shop.

Disney In Nature

 Today I am sharing a couple of cards that I made using one of the latest Disney Kits from Create & Craft. I was so happy that they decided to do this range as it had various characters in rather than just based on one character - I hope they do more like this...
For both these cards I used Disney Be In Nature Collection. I used the Papers, Dies and Colourful Creations Pad from this new collection. I love the sort of sketchy way these have been designed. I mounted everything onto light kraft card. I added some ribbon, lace,  die cut border and pearls.

Reindeer Games

Hi all,
Today I am sharing another Christmas card that I made this week using the new MFT Stamps that were released this month...
For this card I used the MFT Reindeer Games Stamp Set. I coloured them with Copics and cut them out. I created the background using Distress Inks in Salty Ocean & Tumbled Glass. I stamped lightly over the top using MFT Brush Splatter Stamp and gently embossed it to create a vintage background. I also added a light dusting of embossing powder around the edges of the card to create a distressed type look. Finally I added a strip of stripe washi ta,e some card and sentiment from the stamp set.

Winter Penguins

Hi all,
Gosh isn't it dark in the mornings at the moment?! Roll on when the clocks change. Today I have a cute winter card that I made with some of the latest Avery Elle Stamps...
For this card I used the Avery Elle Polar Playtime Stamp Set. I just love all the super cute penguins in this set! I coloured them with my Copic Pens as usual and cut them out. I used the Avery Elle Snow Scene Element Die for the circle snow piece. Such a fab die, I need to use it more. I added some pink spot paper behind it. I used the Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders and the Picket Fence Border Dies. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn Wavy Greetings and matching die. I added some pearls to finish.
