Hooray ...

Fa la la ...

Thought I would share a little interactive Christmas card today, never too late, ha ha.  So Snowman Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant, I do love the agenda collections, great to just sit & colour away to your hearts content.  The flip/pull was created on my Silhouette Cameo, sentiment also Mama Elephant, trees and snowflakes from old Doohickey dies.  Coloured with Promarkers and some gems to finish.

Today I am sharing a card that came together out of scraps in about 10 minutes.  I wanted to check out the cardstock with this new 3D embossing folder from AltenewWhite pigment ink lightly rubbed over the image.  I grabbed my scrap box and before I knew it I had a finished card.  Never happened before but I suppose that just confirms the amazing quality of the embossing folder.  Hot foiled sentiment was in my scrap box too.  Very simple but stunning none the less.

Well a card a day during the month of December, 2023.  That is me done for this year, wishing all my fellow crafters a very Happy Christmas.  See you next year.

Break Glass Here ...

Well today I want to show a card  based on a fire alarm I have etched into the acetate front the words 'Break Glass Here' added a faux screw and instead of the word fire, Christmas.

Inside I have put some miniature crackers.
Really pleased with this one!
Entirely created on my Silhouette Cameo.

Happy 50th ...

Firstly, not the easiest card to photograph, being over 16" in length, so my apologies.  Pretty simple, 50 rolled up pieces of paper using gorgeous papers from Nitwit Collections; Coffee Talk.  Little cream flames cut on my Silhouette Cameo, then glittered with Stickles.  Computer generated sentiment and 'make a wish' printed on Safmat to finish.

Now just need to get the fire brigade on speed dial, ha ha!

Happy crafting Jane

Merry Christmas ...

Had a little play with a Lori Whitlock file on my Silhouette, just enlarged it and made a box for it.  Added some sprinkles for some added sparkle.  Very simple but very effective and something a little bit different.

Merry Christmas, Jane

every birthday ...

Big Balloon die from The Stamp Market, made into a pretty shaker (as shown as inspiration to buy the product) just love this and super easy.  This is a 6" square card to give you an idea.  Teamed up with a die quickly becoming a favourite from The Greetery, Twisted Crepe.  Dug out a stamp set from Altenew titled Kind Confetti, perfect me thinks, ha ha.  Plenty of confetti and some sequins to finish.

Happy crafting, Jane x
