WEDNESDAY WEEKLY CARD GIVE-AWAY

Good morning bloggers and my crafty friends....

I always like the combination of gold and red, as in today's give-away


A very festive combination

I have used textured card, I'm sure bought in Canada on one of our visits.  Spellbinders's Renaissance Die Set and Creative Expressions die for the sentiment


The sentiment was die cut 4 times and glued together

As you know by now, leave me a comment on this post by 6pm Friday when the winner will be drawn and announced on Saturday's blog

Until tomorrow....

TECHNIQUE TUESDAY - CHRISTMAS ANGEL

Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....


The embossed sentiment is by WOW and would you believe it's 'metallic platinum'?  Perfect match for the pearlised grey card, it's a pity it looks gold on here!


I'm sorry the video is long, BUT, if you click on the settings, bottom right and 4 along, you can speed it up.  It's longer than it should be because I was struggling putting the card together because I'm having an RA flare, especially in my hands

A big thank you to my hubby, who, without his help of cutting, scoring etc for me this video/card would not have been possible today


Until tomorrow....

FUN CARD & E/F WINNER

Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....


As most of you know our grandson now lives in the south of England and, sadly and unfortunately, we rarely get to see him, it's heartbreaking for us but we do speak to him on a weekly basis, bearing in mind a 10 year old boy doesn't really want to chat to grandma and granda too long these days.  I also send him the odd card and/or photo.  One of my Christmas presents last year was a calendar with a photo of Max for each month, I love it and especially the one you'll see inside the card.  He was hoping he'd get the 'Pie Face' game, which he did, (one of the presents from us) naturally we all had to play and we all were covered in cream....  I do not like cream, what you do for your grandson LOL




I thought it a good opportunity to add the photo to the card for him as the sentiment is so very true.  I see his cute face every day when I go into my craft room

The 'Remember When' die cut is from Tonic's Craft Kit 15, the cardstock is Creative Expressions and the fancy tags are Spellbinders

FESTIVE FRIDAY 42 - SPIRELLI WREATH

Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....

I used a 4"x6" white card as my base and added a smaller panel of ecru glitter card

Two scalloped dies by Spellbinders were used to create the wreath shape then with green and gold satin ribbon I covered the wreath, securing start and finish ends of ribbon were securely adhered to the back of the wreath.  The name of this technique is 'spirelli'

Mounting foam was also added to the back of the wreath then adhered to the card

I used a WOW embossing powder in 'evergreen' to stamp and emboss the sentiment then added a piece of double sided adhesive to the tag and covered it with glitter jewels by Creative Expressions

For the inside of the card I stamped the Merry Christmas (DoCrafts) using an adirondak ink pad in 'juniper'


Another embossing folder is today's give-away, apologies for the shadows in the background

Leave a comment on today's post by 6pm Saturday and the winner will be drawn and announced on Sunday's blog

Until tomorrow....

HELLO FRIEND

Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....

I think I'm classing this as a CAS card, anyone agree?

It's a 5" square white card base and I added a smaller panel of the gorgeous gold card from Tonic's Craft Kit 15

I cut a triangular piece of white card and stamped the image using a grey ink pad 

The petals were coloured with the 'Strawberry Bonbon' Glitter Pen, and I deliberately left some parts of the petals ink free for a more realistic look (even though it's glitter 😉)

The centres of the flowers were coloured with a pale lemon watercolour pencil

'African Violet' watercolour pencil was used for the leaves with a hint of 'pressed olive' aqua flow pen

I used the tip of the NUVO Signature Calligraphy Pen to add colour, even though it is black, on the berries

The sentiment is from the metallic stickers 'quotations' by Tim Holtz

To complete I stamped the flower stamp on the inside of the card and on the envelope




Until tomorrow....
