Sweet Stampin' Black, White + One other

Hi Girls~

Another Saturday is another great Challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. Again the girls have come up with a theme that suits me well....Black, White + Another, and in my case the other is Red!
Our Sponsors this week are My Mum's Craft Shop. Why not pop over and see what the rest of the Team came up with colour wise.

I have used some of this great Kanban Duo Card in Black and White, I then used one of my favourite Christmas Dies from last year The Modern Landscape by Memory Box, I have added a touch of Little Claire Designs sticky glitter film to the bottom to add a bit of snow like bling. The Season's Greetings is a LOTV stamp, and the Poinsettia is a Spellbinders flower die.

Happy Birthday Hubby~

Hello Ladies~

I hope I find you all well.
It was my Craft Group meet up this Monday, and we made Christmas Gift Tags. What a good time we had and our tags looked fab.

It was also a Special day in our house as it was my lovely Husband's Birthday.
So I would like to show you the card I made for him.

This little Art Pad Topper by LOTV is just perfect for my garden loving hubby, this image sums him up a treat (accept he would never don a cap like that!) LOL
However I think he has been gardening with a bird sitting on the end of his garden fork or on the fence a few times!

The papers are MME Little Deer, image is LOTV as is the sentiment. The button and ribbon are from my stash.

Cause for "Celebration" at Sweet Stampin'~

Hi Girls~

Cause for "Celebration" I hear you ask! I hope your asking!
Well it's defiantly Cause to Celebrate It's our 4th Birthday over at Sweet Stampin',
Happy Birthday to US!

So obviously our theme this week is "Cause to Celebrate".

I have just bought this Stamping Bella image (Madison has a Margarita) and this is the first outing for her, cute isn't she and who doesn't like a Margarita or two!
She's been PP (well her dress has), and she's been coloured with Pro-Makers. The Celebrate is from a LOTV set. The swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey, flower is by Di-Namics and the sweet papers are from a pad by Prima called All about Me.
I have given this card to my lovely friend Angie. We always go Christmas shopping together early November and I made this card with her in mind (she always makes a mean Margarita for us to drink on the train, yummy it was too!)

Wooden Christmas House~

Hi Ladies~
A big thank you for the lovely comments you have been leaving for me, it's always a lovely boost to me to read them. Ta you lovely lot!

I have a Christmas House to show you today. I have made a few of these for my coming sales.
At the Weekend I sold one of these, in this colour, to a little girl who brought her Dad over to buy it for her, oh how sweet!
So I have been busy making a couple more for my next sale on December 1st.

Oh sorry, just realised what a horrendous photo I have taken, I really am pants at photography.....Any tips about making it better would be greatly appreciated!!

These little houses are bought from Samuel Taylors Store and I gesso and then paint them with Acrylic's. I use up all my Christmas paper leftovers to fill the little windows, and I have added some festive ribbon to the edges. Then comes the Fun bit....Finding all the "Small" (small being the operative word!) bits n' bobs to go on the shelves.
In this case I have used a sprig of Holly and Cones, a little snow globe tree ornament ( which actually has the snow inside!), a tiny Father Christmas chalk board with Ho Ho Ho on it, a few scrabble tiles (love these and write what ever I can with 3 or 4 letters....Snow, joy, xmas, ho ho, you get the picture!!
A tea light, a thimble, a small frame and a few metal charms. Done!

They might take a bit of doing these, but I just love to make them, and enjoy finding the little things to go inside it.

Sweet Stampin' BIG TAG!

Hello Girls~

It must be Saturday, as there's a great new Challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.
This weeks theme is one of my favourites "Tags". So a Tag on a card or (as I have done) a Tag.

Our Sponsor this week are The Stamp Fairy (and it's one of their Snowman Images I have used).
Cute isn't it?

I have started with a Prima Tag (usually used for the Julie Nutting Doll Stamps), they are a great size and I have covered it in Kanban Dotty red and white card. The Stamp Fairy image is coloured with Pro-Markers. I have used two of my New Dies, a Snowflake die and a little pair of mittens die both by Di-namics dies. I have added a bit of Little Claire's see through film to the bottom to add a bit of a snowy patch, love this film it's fab. I have finished with a star patterned ribbon.

Red and White Christmas Card~

Hi Ladies~
I am a very excited bunny. In the morning I am off to Glasgow Christmas Shopping with my lovely friend Angie. This is our 17th year of going and we just love it.
There is a lot of drinking, eating, craft shopping (oh ye!!) and a tad of "Proper" shopping going on. With a great big wodge of FUN thrown in, so speak to you all at the weekend with possibly a funny story (as always!)
So my card for today is a Red and White creation with a LOTV image. This image is one of the little toppers I bought earlier in the year, thought she was so cute.
The papers are Bo-Bunny and the border punch is MS, sentiment is craftwork cards. Simples!!

Christmas Cards are here again!

Hello Girls~
Hope you are all having a great day.

I would like to start my post with a big shout out to Vicky of Vixx Handmade Cards, I won her Blog Candy last week and it arrived in the post Saturday. It is so nice, so a big thank you Vicky.
Pop over and see what stunning cards Vicky makes, you won't be disappointed, her work is so beautiful.

Onto today's card. It is yet another Christmas Card.
A little bit different today as I have not chosen to put an image on the front (and have resisted by not using my favourite, at the moment image by LOTV)... The Bear and Robin!!)

I have used some Bo-bunny tartan paper and a sentiment cut from the back of the papers. The stars are a Memory Box die. The shiny dots are Do Crafts. The corner is a die from Whiff of Joy.
The border die is a MS punch.

Sweet Stampin' "Shaped" card~

Hello Ladies~

How quick the Weekends come round, I don't like to think about how close we are creeping up to Christmas......Best not to think about it. (I will also be a year older on that day too!)

So.....Another challenge at Sweet Stampin' again.
Our Sponsors this week are Hobby House. It's no secret how much I love Hobby House products.

The theme for this week is "Shaped Cards, No Squares or Rectangles"....Not easy for me this one, as I am a 6x6 girl myself.
Saying that, I really did enjoy doing this "Stepper Card". This card is a pre-made stepper by "Which Crafts", nice and easy to use.

I have covered this card with Anna Marie Designs Dotty Paper, and I have used a Whiff of Joy Christmas Image. I have coloured it with Pro-Markers. The poinsettia is a Spellbinders die, the bow is by Craftwork Cards, the Snowflakes are a Di-Namics die. The sentiment is stamped from an Indigo Blu stamp and cut down to fit. I have added a few Golden Pearls by Hobby House.
