Happy New Year fellow crafters, for the month of January I am a guest designer over at


The challenge is super easy  'Anything Goes' So I have had a little play with unused until now stamp; Spread your wings Tilda and made a flip calendar.

A motivational quote on the blank tile, I think this was from a Club box; Breathe in INSPIRATION and TRUST yourself the answer is YES YOU CAN


So Kraft card for the construction, papers, Gesso, Distress ink, various Doohickey Club dies, coloured with Promarkers & Prisma pencils and some gems to finish.

Stunning Snowflake ...

 


Today I would like to share a couple of my special Christmas cards for 2021, so family members.  Super elegant I think and really pleased with how they turned out.  So navy card mat, navy mat slightly smaller with the silhouette of the Sizzix TH Stunning snowflake cut out.  I have used a sprinkling of Shabby Blue Frantage to create the background. Cut one large white snowflake, two small, one white again and the other gold glitter card.  Stuck back in the large white snowflake, mounted with 3d foam tape.  Foam tape for the gold and pva to put the white on top.  Foil quilled the sentiment and cut out with the Arch Banner die.

Let's CELEBRATE your ...


I have been waiting to share this little cutie, Conga Line from Colorado Craft Company and illustrated by the fabulous Anita Jeram, a dream to colour and a good size stamp with some sentiments included.  So I have made a shaker frame, coloured with Promarkers, distress background, twisted crepe and some confetti & stars from the pinwheel party dies.  A few more sprinkles from Tonic

Debs, in answer to your lovely comment regarding colours, I have been using Promarkers for many years and tend to have a select go to colours, so ivory, blush, warm greys, sandstone & caramel.  For this particular creation I used ginger, gold & spice too.

Anniversary ...


I do love a clean and simple card and an eclipse thrown in, so effective and always always well received which for me is why I craft.  So a DL card blank, stamped Hydrangeas from My Favorites Things.  Coloured with Promarkers, then cut out the scripty 'Congrats' from Lawn Fawn.  Cut six more out of plain white card and stick the coloured one on the top.  Stamp the sentiment and mount.  A few sequins to finish.

Christmas Cards ...



More elegant Christmas cards completed, on a roll this year.  Another gorgeous stamp from Colorado Craft Company and the Big & Bold Collection, this one is titled Winter Wishes Snowflake.

I confess I was totally hooked with the colours from the sample shown when buying this stamp.   I have added some little gems to finish, hopefully the recipients will love them as much as I do x



Once again, it has been one of my things for a few years now and that is to decorate the envelopes to match, so gold 7x5 envelope also with this gorgeous snowflake.
