Merry Christmas Everybody!

 Hello all! I have a card that I made for my mum over on the Chocolate Baroque blog today ...

I used a paper from a beautiful set from Stamperia that was based around woodland animals and stamped on it using a stamp set from Chocolate Baroque called 'damask reindeer'. Really quick and easy!
Wishing you the best Christmas you can have - make the most of it and enjoy!
Love and hugs

The professor gets his Christmas Groove on...

 Hello there! I was having a little fun the other night creating this card - Queen was blaring through Alexa and I was just feeling a little mischievious - so I ended up stamping the rather handsome professor from Tim Holtz and making him fit for the season....

Having fussy cut him out I took an 8x8 card and roughly applied distress oxide rustic-wilderness with a sponge and tool I then added water to create a speckled effect. Next I applied more of the oxide through holiday-script layering stencil and then I added the die cut pinecone.

Hope you can join in the fun too over at Countryview Challenges which is anything goes Christmas this month!

Use diecuts at Christmas card Club

 Hello there,

Its the last outing of our Christmas Card Club this year and this fortnight the theme is use diecuts. I made only one card as time was short plus I already had lots for this year. I used a TH die to make a simple card.

I rather like this! I hope to use it again next year!
My mum made two lovely cards. The first one used apple blossom die. The second one a christina griffiths die and apple blossom penguin die. 

Hope you have a great Sunday!

Anything goes Christmas at Countryview Challenges

 Hello there - well its December - I mean how on earth did that happen? It does mean there's a new challenge starting at Countryview Challenges - and the theme is everybody's favourite at this time of year - anything goes - Christmas!

I used a new stamp set from Tracy Evans at aall and create.

Such a pretty set - I started by stamping with the tree branch stamp all over the card - I then made a topper stamping the main pinecone image in versamark and seting it with copper embossing powder and then colouring the pine cone. 
A pretty simple make for a winter birthday or Christmas! Hope you like it!
