Romany Christmas Frame Card and Ornaments

Morning All!
Today I'd like to share a little frame card that I made using the new Abigail Mills CD 'Romany Christmas'.


 I also made some little Christmas tree ornaments using images from the CD printed onto transfer paper and then ironed on to felt. I don't have a sewing machine so I hand sewed around the egde with blanket stitch.





Hope you like them! I'd like to enter this project into the ABC Christmas Challenge where you choose one of their past challenges - I have chosen C is for Colourful - to depict my Christmas tree ornaments.
Best wishes and bye for now

Romany Christmas Gift Set

Afternoon Crafters!
Tune in to Create and Craft tomorrow and you will see the new Abigail Mills CD called Romany Christmas.

With lots of lovely fabric themed Christmas images, anyone who enjoys needlework or the look of fabric texture on their cards, will love this new collection. Today I thought I'd share a baby grow and matching gift box that I made.

The baby grow image was added using printable transfer paper, whilst the box was made on my Ultimate Pro and decorated with papers and tags from the CD.



Hope you like it.
Best wishes

Over the Rooftops

Morning All!
And what a lousy morning it is here too! Grey, windy and wet! Hope things are better where you are!
Anyway, this morning I thought I'd share another card I made using the Crafter's Companion Create a Card  dies - this time 'Over the Rooftops'.
I cut the image from black card and used silver ink to bring out the stencilled detail. The landscape at the bottom of the die I cut several times to add to the bottom of the card and also to make an edge to act as a stopper on my easel card. The background is white Sheena Stamping card run through the Textures distress folder as I thought it looked a bit snowy.


Hope you like it. i'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - No Designer Papers
Best wishes and bye for now

Box of Delights

Morning Crafters!
It's a sunny morning here but I'm still going to share a wintry project with you all! lol!
Today I thought I'd show you a gift box I made using two cuts of the 'Christmas Eve' Create a Card die.

I made a little half inch tab down each side and stuck the two pieces together, added a snowy acetate window, and then made a box lid and base on my Ultimate Pro to fit.

The little square panel became a tag and I added a bow and embellishments on the top. Ideal for a candle or sweets.

Hope you like it!

Fireside Flames

Just thought I'd pop by and share a wee bit more Crafter's Companion Create a Card inspiration - this time using the Fireside die.

This is a fab die to use with black card - I tried to make it pop by putting it against an Aquatint background. Hope you like it!
Best wishes and bye for now
