Brambly Hedge 'Make a Wish'

Hi All!
Back with another post, this time using a fab image from the Crafter's Compaion 'Brambly Hedge' stamps.

I created the background from Centura Pearl card that I embossed with an Embossalicious 'Make a Wish' folder or die cut, and coloured with my Distress inks The card is 7x7 in size and the image is coloured with Spectrum Noir pens - FS2, FS3, TN2, EB1, EB2, GB8, BT1, BT2, PP1, PP3, CG2.
The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and gems from are from my stash.
I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - Anything Goes

Be back soon with more crafty projects, in the meantime, i hope you all have a really Happy New Year!
Best wishes

Vintage Decs

Morning All!
Hope you are having a lovely Christmas holiday!
Just popping by to share a little Christmas rosette I made using the printable papers from the Crater's Companion 'Vintage Christmas' Cd. I love these nostalgic images and, with a little fussy cutting and help from my Glue Gun I made this little decoration. Making homemade decorations feels really nostalgic to me and reminds me of many happy Christmases when I created xmas decs with my mum and gran - happy memories!
 You can hang this on the tree, (I used twine for a rustic look) or add a message to the back and use it as a tag.

Hope you like it. I'd like to enter it into the Country View Festive Challenge which this month is 'Nostalgic Christmas' and Creative Inspirations' Christmas/New Year Challenge.

Best wishes and bye for now

Snowman Gift Card Holders

Hi All!
As Christmas preparations start to hot up I thought I'd share some little gift card holders I made using the Crafter's Companion/Hunkydory Snowman Papercrafting kit.

They were quick and easy to make and open up to reveal a little pop up pocket where you can add a gift card or money. I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the notches so the flaps slot together.

The sentiment inside was stamped with one of the Bebunni Christmas stamps.

Anyway, hope you like them.
Best wishes and bye for now

One for the Boys

Morning Crafters!
Today I have a card to share which is perfect for the men in your life.

First, I used a topper from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town Cd. Next, I embossed a piece of white card with the Darice Diamond Plate folder. I then repeated this onto some silver mirri card and splodged on some red and blue alcohol ink to change the colour. I layered these pieces up to craete the design and finished off with a sentiment, punched stars and silver Card Candi.
Hope you like this card - it was really fun to make!
I would like to enter it into the 'A little Bit Crafty Challenge' which this month is 'Anything But Christmas'.
Best wishes

A Ray of Sunshine

Hi All!
Back today to share a bright and cheerful card made using Core'dinations cardstock and the Darice Floral Border embossing folder.

The more times you play with these folders, the more ideas you get. Here I have just embossed the design in different corners and on multiple sheets then layered them up to create a design. The stamp is a Crafter's Companion 'Sentimentals' stamp and the corner dies are from the Die'sire Ornamental Ovals set. Finally, I added black gems to finish. Hope you like it!

Bird on a Branch Embossing

Morning All! Don't forget to tune in to Create and Craft on Monday morning to see Fiona from Crafter's Companion demonstrating the Darice Embossing Folders.

Here is one example I made using the Bird on a Branch folder, embossed onto Centura Pearl and coloured with Distress Inks to make some last minute Christmas Cards. I even made a box to match.
Hope you like them. Back soon with some more embossing ideas.
Best wishes
