A Cup of Winter Warming

Good morning,

I'm sharing my card today for Live and Love Crafts and I have used the new Mug Stencil from Dutch Doobadoo.  You can currently pre-order this in the Noor Design UK Shop, due for arrival on 1st December. It's great to use as a card or as a card/gift holder.  I added a bar of Galaxy but could easily be satchets of hot chocolate, yum yum.

Papers are from Maja Design's new collection, aren't they gorgeous and look at that beautiful image :)

I added christmas tree die cuts in kraft cardstock and edged with walnut stain distress ink.  I also added elements from the ice crystal border die.

A cinamon stick cut and a 20mm rose to the centre and love the star leaves.  Can you see that these emboss and deboss :)

A new arrival in the LLC store is the vintage prima flowers, re-stocks of the vax cord and finished with a tag cut from the tags sheet and a vintage flourish holly leaf.

I added text from the christmas A5 paper art and changed the colour from white the dark brown using the walnut stain ink.

I added brown tulle to the rim of the mug a little dotting around of snow tex.

A close up of the new flower and a little siscle underneath the arrangement.

Windy Wintery Day

Good morning,

It's Monday and time to share my Live and Love Crafts DT Card with a theme this week of Glitter, Sparkle and Bling.

I have used Pion Design's Glistening Season.  I am a bit of a blue, cream and brown fan so this collection is a firm favourite of mine.

I have used two Creative Expression poinsettia dies, classic and filigree to make the poinsettias and added stamen.  I have added some BLING to the centre of the largest poinsettia.  The star leaves are also a Creative Expression die cut.

The image was coloured using distress inks and edged with walnut stain and for some sparkle I added some star dust glitter glue.

The shapes in the centre of the card were made using Craftemotions Die Set, links at the bottom.

On the left I have used the star crescent die and again added walnut stain and star dust glitter glue.  Just underneath the crescent I have added star anaise and a little sparkle.

I also added the Creative Expression Snowflake Border from the die set.  I trimmed off the snowflakes at each end to fit the border to the 6x6 frame and then tucked the two snowflakes under layers of the papers.

I used tags from     and placed under the craftemotions die cut and added rusty bells and vax cord to finish.

Hope you like it.

By The Fireside

Good morning

Today I am sharing a card made using the "Under The Tree" image pad and chose one of the black and white images to use.  I combined this with the Let It Snow paper pad and lots of embellishments :)

The North Pole Postage stamp is from the Dutch Doobadoo A5 Craft Christmas but I painted it with Gesso to make it white.

I used the Banner Text and matching Banner Die for the "Magic of christmas" text stamped with Tim Holtz clear ink and embossed with the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder in white.

A close up of the Joycraft Flower and the smaller vintage flourish holly leaf.

You can see from the below picture the Marianne Design Fringe Tassels,  finished with a bell end cap.  There are now two sizes available of the Bell end cap in store, 6mm and 8mm,  which are perfect for the two sizes in each Marianne Design die set.

I also sneaked a star edge diecut to the right, embossed and used the die as a stencil to highlight the embossed sections with distress ink.

I used the Ice Circle die, top left, and added diamond dust which I seem to get everywhere including on the image, oops!

I have used my favourite ice crystal border die around the edges and also used the Dutch Doobadoo Ice Star Stencil with structure paste onto plain blue cardstock and tucked amongst the layers.

All papers were edged with gesso.

Just poking out here on the left you can see the vintage flourish holly die, another of my favourites.

A close up of the image, although I have covered it with a splashing of diamond dust, lol, a happy accident.

Again you can see in the flower arrangement the edges of the ice crystal border and the vintage flourish holly and just about the gorgeous joycfraft flowers.
