Hello Everyone,

Well that was a whirlwind of a weekend, gone in a flash.  Been university shopping but still have more to get, sigh.  We then spent the day with family in Brighton dropping off my nephew for the start of his second year in Uni and here we are again, Monday....

The theme that Sandy has set the DT over at Live and Love Crafts this week is "Sparkle".  I have taken the opportunity to make another Christmas card and I have lots of sparkly bits to share with you.

The image is from Pion Design's Winter Days     sheet and the paper is from      

The tree is cut from a Marianne Design Die and I have added lots of Diamond Dust and then wrapped some silver beads around the tree.

I added diamond dust tot he snowflakes too and then added the little buttons to two of the centres.  I also tinted the buttons with a little acrylic red paint and removed it straight away so that the pattern can still be seen.

I cut the poinsetta from the matching paper and added diamond dust and bordeaux and marshmallow frosted berries to the centre.  The holly leaves have a dashing of snow tex.

I have added some beautiful lace to the bottom so that it trails down when the card put up.  I have also added a row of   organza rose trim.  Last and not least I added the holly charm to the corner of the image.

White as Snow

Hello again, this time I'm sharing my Live and Love Crafts DT card and this week the theme we are all following is "White as Snow", so you will see lots of white and a few snowflakes too.  This card really sparkles in real life and unfortunately I don't think my photography has done this card justice :(

The papers are from Pion Design's latest release Days of Winter, 6 x 6 Erik and Elsa and I couldn't bear to cover up the printed scene so I have used the snow effect and striped pieces for the front and saved the scenic piece for the inside :)

Here's the floral bouquet and I think you can see the diamond dust on all the snow flakes.  At the bottom I have used a Maya Road Vintage Finding Teardrop Pearl Centre and then used lots of white roses in 30mm and 15mm, frosted berries, pearl stamen, shabby blossom, foam flowers.

The image is cut from the 6x6 paper, isn't she gorgeous.  Love these images. This is layered onto a Noor Design die cut and then a Melissa Frances paper doily and finished at the bottom by a shabby seam binding bow.

I have used two beautiful laces, Elixir and Crotcheted Pearl Lace.

And here's the inside, oops there's some seam binding left hanging over the top, lol.  Don't you agree, too beautiful to cover up, right? 

Have a good week.

Lace at BunnyZoe

Morning Everyone,

Another weekend flown by.  We had a little fun on Saturday, well actually I should say.... Wheelie Good Fun, lol.  As part of our present to my BIL we booked An experience for Segway.  Was really fun but just not long enough amd I'm pleased to report that none of us fell off.

Today's card is my DT challenge card for BunnyZoe and this month it is "Lace".  A firm favourite of mine I'm sure you are all aware of by now, lol.

The image is by Wild Rose Studio called Girl with Penguin and I have coloured her with Inktense pencils.

The paper is from the Bebunni 6 x 6 paper pad and the two swirls from one of the new Wild Rose Stuido Flourish Snow Die.  I cut it in green and white and then added the white snowflakes on top and added a little stickles star dust.

Hugs Tracy x

Here's my card and I have chosen to use Piper, isn't she gorgeous, well actually aren't they all. I have also used some of the Little Darlings Dies, the Darling Square Set and the and the gorgeous Lovely View.  

The sentiment is from the Vintage "For All You Do" set and was cut out using the circle die from the Darlings Square set of dies and placed centre stage on the Lovely View.

Here's a peek at the inside.  Again I have used the dies to match the front of the card and added another Lovely View cut with a sentiment this time from the Vintage "Friends" set.

The papers are from Pion Design My Precious Daughter collection.  The mirror has been cut from a Marianne Design Vintage Mirror Die LR0321
