Wreath Tilda ...

(front & side)
(Another side)

My last two Christmas cards, well lanterns actually.  I adore this Tilda, Holly Wreath Tilda from the Apsen Holidays 2016 collection.  Adapted file on my Silhouette, vellum windows, snow, flowers, gold & pink organza ribbon, cheesecloth, berries and many Doohickey dies.  I have added a square top with stars cut out so the light shines through too.  Gesso for that shabby chic look and pop a little battery tealight inside.

Dashing ...

I have been playing with the Ready, Set Snow stamps from MFT, perfect for the big boys in the family & interactive too, penny sliders!

So I cut the layers on my Silhouette, Distress Oxide the background and some water sprinkles for a great effect. Coloured with Promakers and some snow to finish.

Have yourself a MERRY little CHRISTMAS ...

Today I would like to share with you a christmas card using the adorable Snowman Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant.  Now I cannot take all the credit for the design, I was totally inspired by the lovely Ashley Tucker on YouTube.  I have added a couple more layers, vellum embossed with snow fall and a tree layer.  Just spin the trees and watch them rotate, really pretty, thanks Ashley for the inspiration.

So coloured with Promarkers, cut on my Silhouette Cameo, hand stitched, tree stamps from the MFT Ready Set Snow set, plenty of Stickles and some Glossy Accents.  Sentiment from the Silhouette Design Store.

hooray ...

I'm back, busy crafting but nothing I can share just yet but this one I can, today I am sharing a new set of stamps to my collection which I just loved the minute I saw them but then my Daughter saw them and adored them too, so I decided to sit on my hands for a wee bit and keep them for her 21st Birthday card! 

They are just adorable aren't they and my Daughter just loves all the detail I have put in, including a gem for the camera flash, glitter on the pink hearts & gifts, glaze on the glasses and even 'twenty one' on the wee little signs.  So CAS, plenty of colouring, hand stitched and if you haven't seen these stamps before and you now really really NEED them they are from Mama Elephant and titled Little Monkey Agenda. If you like these little stamps you can also get - Little Boy Agenda, Little Girl, Little Bunny, Little Cat, Little Dog, Little Reindeer & Little Santa too.  Finally 'hooray' die matted and layered up, white, gold & black.  Coloured with Promarkers, love them
