Autumn Wreath

Morning Crafty Peeps!
Just thought I'd pop along to share an Autumn wreath I made for one of my last Crafter's Companion UK Demo Days. I used the fabulous leaf dies from Sara's Autumn Morning Collection and Distress Inks.

I have it on my mantlepiece at the mo, but the plan at the end of the month is to change it up to a winter wreath using some of the lovely Christmassy dies. If the idea goes to plan, then I'll share it with you here :) Hope you like it! xx

Falling Leaves

Afternoon All!
Just back with a little post to share a card I made using the Autumn Morning stamps, papers and dies from Crafter's Companion.

First I used Archival Black Ink to randomly stamp the leaves on the background card, then I matted it onto black card. I created another layer by masking off a strip of the card and inking with Distress Inks to make a panel - the masking tape gives you nice neat lines. I then added gems, stamped a sentiment and added die cut leaves from the papers.
Hope you like it!
Best wishes

Colorista Calendar

Hi All!
Just thought I'd pop on to share a quick idea with what you can make from your 5x7 inch Colorista pads once you've coloured your masterpiece.  I've made some of mine into calendars - really easy and a great gift for Christmas too!
Best wishes and bye for now

Autumn Morning Scene

Morning All!
Well today I thought I'd share a card using the  'Leaves are Falling' dies and Woodgrain embossing folder from Crafter's Companion's Autumn Morning range.

I inked and embossed the folder and die cut the leaf shape, before using the trees stamp from a back issue of Crafter's Inspiration as my scene through the cut out. Distress inks helped to make the background - which you can change depending upon the colours you use -  and I added a stamped sentiment and hessian bow from the other products in the lovely Autumn Morning range!

Hope you like it!
Back soon x

Birthday Box

Hi All!
Did you manage to watch Leann with the 8x8 Create a Card dies on Hochanda this week? I love these dies and don't know which one I would choose as my favourite!

I used the Happy Birthday die to create this gift box from Centura Pearl card and decorated it with Quilling Flower embellishments. Boxes like these really make your prezzies look expensive!


Hope you like it!
Bye for now xx

Thank You card using Mollie Border Die

Hi All!
I know its been a while but I've been busy behind the scenes and have neglected my little old blog!
So today I thought I'd just pop along and share a card I made with the fab 12 inch Diesire border dies from Crafter's Companion.

This one uses the die called Mollie...and I thought it was perfect for making into a Thank You card... hope you
like it! xx
