i love you beary much ...

I am still in blog land, crafting away, just nothing I can show with you all at the moment.  So I thought I would share this cutie for now which has been in my draft box for a wee while; Theodore by Sizzix.  Never used any of the Colorize Thinlits by Tim Holtz but this jumped into my shopping basket.  He is a good size, I have used a DL size card to give you an idea.  I have once again used distress oxide and water for my matting, brown cardstock, hand stitched, acetate, organza ribbon, vellum, hearts and gems to finish.

Love came down at Christmas time ...

This years very special makes complete, over 35 cut elements per card, along with colouring and assembly.  Taken a wee while but I am really pleased with the results.  

I must first and foremost thank Wanda as a designer for The Greetery for the idea of the little heart, it is a great little touch and I just had to add to my special creations, so thank you Wanda.

So backing paper is from Nitwit Collections, The Greetery Hourglass dies & coodinating elements.  Pine Bough and sentiment banner also from The Greetery, they really have thought of everything for this one.  Main hourglass elements & pine bough all cut in white card and coloured with Promarkers, gold card, embossing enamel & a couple of gems to finish.

Merry Christmas crafters, Jane

HAMMMMY birthday ...

I just love any of the agenda stamps from Mama Elephant and this one is no exception, had this one from release but only just inked up, oops! Paired up with Celebration Hamsters, just adorable.

So I have stamped a wrap for an 6" square card blank.  Coloured with Promarkers, stitched vellum shaker with confetti. Computer generated Hammmmy and birthday die.  Glossy accents for the chocolate on the cake.  Inside, pink polka dot papers, hand stitched and a mini wobble spring for this little fella too.  CG sentiment for the inside also there is a stamp in the set with the same sentiment, I just wanted a different font.  A few little pastel pearls to finish.

Merry Christmas to my fellow crafters & bloggers

I have been looking for an elegant stamp like this for sometime, clean & simple with a couple of gems to finish.  Stamped on cardstock from The Paperbox; Dusty Blue & Moss Green with white/gold embossing powder.  First purchases from both Crafty Individuals & The Paperbox and the service was brilliant, I would highly recommend.
