ever the gentleman...

Afternoon guys!

Hope we are all having a good week up to now?

I am here with a male card. Not the easiest in the world but sometimes less is defo more esp for male cards.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Magnolia Forever Challenge blog - Anything goes with option of thank you
International Art and Soul challenge blog- Layer it up
Simply Magnolia challenge blog - Anything goes with the option of wings
Sweet Stampers Challenge blog Dies and/or punches
The Official Magnolia Challenge blog - CAS

This card I wanted that old world classic feel. I love the 1920s so was aiming for that. The jazz and style kinda feel.

I used a push me pull me card as I like to call it. You tut on how to do this Double Slider card tutorial .

I used papers from Pion Design. Such a great Masculine release this and something you can work with so easily. Every piece in this collection is just beautiful.

I used to of my all time fave Edwin stamps. They are just dapper gents dont you think!! I coloured Edwin with Distress Inks.

I layered up the papers but not just this I used a Tim Holtz number die and cut the gold numbers out of this. I then used the 3d tape and made each layer pop.

I added a pocket watch and three matte black flat back pearls.

I hope you have a great week ahead.

Hi Cookie!


Hi Guys!

Hope we are good?

I am here with a GDT for the fabulous Swedish House Crafts and a new company added to the shop called Hi Cookie these are the sweetest Christmas images and I couldn't resist the one that I used.

For this card I used the image 'Nils Reindeer Jumper' I love anything Christmas jumper wise and this little guy dressed up is just adorable! I coloured Nils with Distress inks. I had to download the Digi and print it on to watercolour paper and just to make sure the printer ink was dry I left it overnight before I coloured him up.

The papers are from Maja Design. These guys do fab Christmas papers and this collection Christmas Season is probably my fave out of all they have done. So much so I have ordered another 2 lots of it!

The dies....oh I love me some dies! These are all from Magnolia as I do have a bit of a think for Magnolia dies.

On Nils Santa hat...the trim is Marvy snow marker just to make it a bit puffy like fluff. I used the same on his Santa tache  too. On the reindeer's nose I added just a touch of Ranger's Glossy accents to make it sparkle and add some dimension to it.

Finally to the tags, I popped some shabby chic red binding through and a small candy cane charm from my stash.

Now, the image comes with a sentiment but I used a different one as I kinda thought Nils is wanting to be Santa when he grows up and the Tim Holtz sentiment 'Just believe' from the December Doodles is one of my fave...ie: its used a lot!

The stocking pic on the left side of the card is from the Maja collection.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

Christmas behind every door


Hi guys!

hope we are all well and going good this Thursday?

I am here with a *whispers* Christmas card...yes I know I know...but its coming fast crafters and we know what the Christmas cards do to us!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

The official Magnolia Inspiration and Challenge blog - Christmas in August
The Alphabet Challenge blog - 'J' is for Joy or Joy fold card
Simply Magnolia Challenge blog - Anything goes with the option of a sentiment
Sweet Stampers challenge blog- Dies and/or punches
International Art and Soul- Embossing heat or dry

So this style of card is a a feature for my Christmas cards this year. Its actually a die that came with a magazine and its made my life sooooo much easier in the posting dept. It folds down flat! yes FLAT!!!!!! no more wrestling into the envelopes!!!

I used a Tilda from a Christmas collection a few back and i think she is called 'Tilda in button down coat' i cannot for life of me remember.

I coloured Tilda with Distress inks. I used papers from Maja Design 'Christmas season ' which I think out of all the Christmas papers Maja have done this has to be my fave.

Now the door....this is from Lawn Fawn and I couldnt resist. It such a fab little die isnt it and perfect for Christmas.

The other dies are all Magnolia except for the little holly spring on the front of the door which is from Impression Obsession.

I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the Magnolia Poinsettia die and then sprayed these with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in silver. Once dry I curled them and dabbed some Nuvu silver mousse on them to add a little glimmer.

Hope you have a fab week.

always time for tea


Hi!

hope we are all well.

Here things have been good. Summer has definitely kicked into gear and we have had some crazy hot days. Too hot to be blogging and not making most of the sun. So today when things are quiet and a bit cooler I am finally back to blog! woohoo!

This card was made for my gorgeous best friend who shares my love of tea. Yes im a committed tea drinker. I dont drink coffee, think i can count on one hand how many lattes I have a year but tea is my thing and I enjoy keeping my commitment up!!

For this card I used the awesome Grand Dome die from the Becca Feeken collection for Spellbinders. Its such a fabulous die and you will be seeing a lot of it and the rest of the collection this year!

I used Tilda from the Wonderland collection. When I saw her I just had to have her!!! Love this collection!!! I coloured Tilda with Distress inks.

The papers....oh the papers!!! They are from Couture Creations 'Enchanted Tea Party' and I will confess I have bought a lot of this collection. I just love it!!!

The dies are from Magnolia and I wanted a kind of enchanted garden feel. The Time for tea sign on the bottom right hand corner is from the paper collection.

Hope you have a great weekend.
