Poinsettia and Pixie Powders

It's a horrible day here! The wind is howling so a perfect day to sit in the craftie space - like I needed an excuse.
This card was inspired by a lady called Holly Brown who made several cards like this in different colours.
I have much neglected the Pixie Powders and the Brushos of late in my desire to make quick  CAS cards but to be honest, this card was really just as quick as many of the others I have made.

I have the Powders and Brushos still out on the desk so am going to do a few more in different colours and then do some for Birthdays instead of Christmas using different flowers. 

I only have 3 Poinsettia stamps. One is for layering/die cutting and not suitable and the other is a PB Watercolour one - again no good for this!
This one is from PB's Wonder Collection and was a challenge win some time ago! I teamed it up with a Holly stamp from Woodware's 'Christmas Greenery' set.

Stamped, embossed then masked the Poinsettia then stamped and embossed the holly.
I used 'Midnight Blue' Pixie Powder on watercolour card.
I am still perfecting using powders -but think this one turned out OK, although I usually am too heavy handed when sprinkling the powder.
The sentiment stamping was a disaster hence the addition!

Stars

Doing some more Christmas cards as although I think I have enough for myself this year, I decided that it wouldn't do any harm to keep making whilst I have all the Christmas stash out - (any excuse not to tidy up this mess of a craft room  πŸ˜›πŸ˜›)

Finished this one today for the challenge over at CAS Christmas which (would you believe) is Stars!
OK so there's only ONE star on here but it IS a very sparkly one!

This was a CASE of one I made last year - and the year before- and probably the year before that!  I like the simple design and the bonus is it doesn't take very long.

Used the 'Snow' embossing folder on an odd piece of card and layered it onto mirri card (which as we all know is an absolute PIG to photograph)
The branch and the star simply cut from glitter card. A little bit of red cord wrapped round the branch and stuck to the star.

Finished with a Penny Black sentiment inked in Silver metallic ink.

The weather here has been very wet and the forecast is for dry but very cold. Can cope tih cold but I hate wet! So maybe I might go for a walk tomorrow to blow away the cobwebs..... and not have to tidy the craft room! Have a great day whatever you're doing and thanks for visiting! x

Stamping Sensations December Challenge

The brand new challenge at Stamping Sensations this month is 'GLITTER AND SPARKLE'!

Be Creative are our sponsors this month so make sure your entry has stamping as the focal point to be in with a chance to win!
I have used their embossing powders on this card.

I had a bit of a brainstorm with this - halfway through I was thinking why oh why did I use vellum?!!
Seemed like a good idea before I started......

Vellum on a white base card.
Stamps used are 'Twiggy Trees' by Inkylicious.
Embossed 6 in silver and one smaller one in gold.

Stamped the sentiment in Smokey Grey Versafine ink and clear embossed.

Added lots of stickles drops to the sky.

Overall am quite pleased with the way it turned out - It IS really sparkly in real life and didn't take too long to do, although I had to use a sticky sheet specifically for vellum to attach to the card in an attempt to get it to lay flat as the vellum had warped a little with the heat gun!

Please go over to the blog and see what my teamies have done too - we love visitors!

Have a great day whatever you're doing. x

Crafty time!

I am doing a little happy dance as although I have a few things to do this week, most are in the house so I can pop in and out of the craftie space and make messy to my hearts content and up to now next week is the same too!
Spent yesterday finishing a baby card (can't show yet!), and writing some of my Christmas cards - (that's a bit of a fib really - I print labels and just add a couple of kisses if the recipient warrants it! But I DO write the envelopes!)
So here's another Christmas card from me today to share
I love Pink.... bet you didn't know that did you??πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
For some reason I like to make Pink Christmas cards and here's another.
A few snippets used here so am away to the Playground to check out what has been going on!

The trees are silver embossed and the pink is of course Spun Sugar DI.

I had some silver pearlised card left over from another card so die cut two snowflakes and layered them together.

The silver ribbon was used on a card I received last year - there wasn't a lot of it but I managed to make it stretch just enough!

The sentiment was stamped in Silver ink and a sparkly gem added to the middle of the snowflakes.

The pic quality is really poor - but then so is the light here at the mo!

Brrr......!!

My goodness it has gone cold here! We even had a few sleety snowflakey things drop for 10 minutes or so a little earlier. Didn't amount to much but it is definitely a sign that Winter is here.
So I have a wintry scene card to share -
Just got out the inks and a scrap circle lying on the desk was put to good use as it made me a big moon mask!
I used Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio for the background. This is one of my fave colour combos when using inks and I wasn't sure if it would give me the cold effect I wanted but I think it's not too bad.

The trees were a mixture of stamps, all white embossed and the reindeer was done the same.
I added a little bit of Stickles along the base of the trees and on little deer's feet (doesn't show very well in the pic!)

The sentiment is from SU and sadly I didn't manage a crisp impression and you can just see a little bit of powder round some of it - but think that it proves that is is hand made as it's not perfect! (My excuse anyway!)

November Mid Month reminder

It's the middle of November and time for a little reminder about our challenge this month at Stamping Sensations.
We are 'GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS' (as if we needed reminding that it's almost upon us!!)

I have made a card which is similar to one that I posted a couple of weeks back in a different colour combo - (it's HERE if you want a peek)- I can take no credit for the idea (acknowledgement is on the other post)  but hope that it will inspire you to make something and join in with us this month.

This really IS a CAS Card and I made several of these in different colours using coloured cardstock.
The inked panel is not difficult to make - just watercolour card stamped and some distress ink used to colour the background. I used Versafine Majestic Blue for the trees and Chipped Sapphire for the background.

As with the other one, I used some liquid pearls and glam dust to imitate snow falling- it really does sparkle!

Hope you will join us - to be in with a chance of winning a great prize from SWEDISH HOUSE CRAFTS simply link up your creation with your stamping as the focal point.
And if you're all 'Christmassed Out' and are still needing some inspiration my teamies have lots of lovely cards to give you some ideas!

More Christmas!

Got on and made a couple more cards of the same design, using up some scraps on the way. Have done this card in a couple of different colours and will share more later.

My favourite linen textured card was used for all the pieces.

I started by stamping the trees on the panel using Olive Archival Ink.

The stamp is old and at some point I've taken it off the wood backing so have no idea which company but they may be Hero Arts?

I then dusted some Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn over the tree line and stamped the sentiment in the same Olive ink.
The circle is coloured with Festive Berries and simply glued over the panel. 
A Holly die inked and stuck on, some cord and a few pearls and done.

I am sharing this make over at  Double Trouble -  Challenge 14. 
This is the first time I have seen this challenge and was intrigued by it!
Surprisingly I have managed to do all 3 things with this card - create a Christmas project, use the Tic Tac Toe board for TSOT (link below) and also have an optional twist of 'something hanging'.

An acknowledgement of inspiration is needed to Pinterest and Birgit for the concept behind this card. We have a lovely day here - blue skies and really mild for this time of the year. I hope the sun is shining where you are and thanks for looking!.x

Poppies

A simple CAS card on this Remembrance Day.
 
White Linen card base, some snippets of the same card to create the layers.

Prim Poppy die, (more snippets) and the negative image used to sponge the shadow on the smallest layer.

Poppy coloured with Distress Inks then the heads covered in Glossy Accents.

A few black shiny faceted gems and a simple sentiment.

Embossing - CAS Mix Up November.

Things are settling down a little here and am managing to find some time to get round all the challenges I have missed! Although I am struggling for ideas - think it's because I have had so many other things whizzing round in my head -  I really wanted to have a first go at the CAS MIX UP challenge which this month is Embossing.

I vaguely remembered doing something with an embossing folder called the Belleek method some time back and being happy with the way it tuned out so after a quick internet search I found some inspiration on Jennifer's blog. (Thank you Jen)

I  made several cards using the same embossing folder and different coloured ink. And they used up some scraps of card in the process!

The first card used SU Daffodil Delight ink.
Turned out a little darker than expected but am quite OK with it - after all you need a bit of sunshine if you're not well don't you?

Following Jennifer's tip I inked over the embossed panel with Versamark and then dusted some Cosmic Shimmer over raised bits. I was really pleased with the result - although it doesn't show up a lot in the pic! A gorgeous subtle sheen.

The second card was a lot less intense and I thought a little disappointing although it DOES look better in real life than it does in the pic.
You can't really see the background colour (Versacolour Petal Pink) here but it is a very pretty pale shade. (And anyway it's another just to have on hand in case I need to send one in a hurry!)

I used a larger frame for this panel as there was very little impact with the soft colour scheme. Every cloud etc though as maybe this can be just a general 'all purpose' note card?

Happy though to be back in the craftie space even though Mojo doesn't want to be here with me!

Thanks for looking and thank you for any comments you leave - I appreciate them all. x

Stamping Sensations November Challenge

Hard to believe we are into November already! So as Christmas isn't that far away - our challenge this month at STAMPING SENSATIONS is ' Get Ready For Christmas'
 I actually enjoy making Christmas Cards so this one was a little pleasure for me - and quick and easy.
Oh and feeling rather proud of myself as it's one layer too!
Made a mask for the 'hills'  and the moon then sponged on some Shaded Lilac distress ink.

Stamped the trees randomly in Versafine then removed the mask once the ink was dry.
Then had the tricky bit of just embossing the top without coming down past the tree line....... managed it - JUST!

Some Hickory Smoke oxide used to create the snow drifts and finished with my little pair of reindeer.
No sentiment on the outside as I just liked it the way it is when I'd done!

Hope you will come over and join us this month - SWEDISH HOUSE CRAFTS are our wonderful sponsor and there's some goodies up for grabs!  Just remember - we're a STAMPING challenge and stamping has to be the focal point of your entry!
There's lots of lovely Christmas makes done by my teamies this month too - and they would appreciate a visit.

I am away today at a Presentation Lunch and it's rather a long way away - I am hoping I'll be back tonight in time to catch up with everyone!x

Hello Birdie

I am busy making Christmas cards. The desk is a mess! Lots of embossing powders, stamps, dies and odd bits of card lying round now - promised myself I will tidy.... tomorrow....
Used up some of the odd bits on this card

I made one similar to this a long time ago and the desk scrap pile reminded me of it so a re-make!
I cut a piece out of the bottom of the base card using a 'new to me' die. Wanted some fancy stitched dies for a while and bought a set of curvy edges made by Creative Dies.
Ran a piece of red card through the 'crimper' and stuck underneath. The strip of gingham ribbon hides the join on the other side!
 

Punched out lots of leaves from a bit of green card and assembled them into a circle before putting onto the ribbon.
Added a black beak and a black beady eye to birdie and positioned him amongst the leaves. I thought it might make him look a bit sinister but he's rather sweet!
Finished with a bit of string suitably distressed with Vintage Photo ink, a red button and another tiny scrap of ribbon.

The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Crimson Red.
Thanks for having a look.
We've had a couple of lovely days weather but now I am sat here listening to the rain battering on the window! Hope you're tucked up safe and warm! x

Winter Blues!

Came back from a short break staying with some friends at their wonderful place in Italy - from lovely warm weather to frost and cold! Skies here though are as blue today as they were when we were in the warm sunshine so we are off out for a wander round a local Artisan Market.

My share for today is not Christmas or Autumn themed either but a card made for a friend who is not into frilly or fancy.

I used basic white linen card for my base and stamped the Altenew Rose direct onto the card then silver embossed.

Brush inked the bottom with some Tumbled Glass DI.
I stamped/embossed the Altenew Rose again onto an off cut of the linen card and fussy cut the leaves and the flower head, then added some glamour dust.

Popped them all up on foam pads for extra dimension.
Rather pleased with how it turned out as it really is sparkly in real life without being too over the top!

Embossed the sentiment and added a few little sparklies.
Job Done!

Mid Month reminder!

It's mid month time and here's a little reminder from me of our challenge of 'AUTUMN COLOURS' at Stamping Sensations.

We have the wonderful STAMP ADDICTS as our sponsor this month - we are very lucky to have such great sponsors of all our challenges and if you want to be in with a chance of winning then please follow our rules which are shown on the blog.
We are a stamping challenge and stamping HAS to be the focal point of your entry.

I needed a Thank you card in a hurry so this is what I came up with.

Really quick with a masked off inky background and some copper embossed leaves.

Matted onto dark brown before popping onto the base card.

Was a little unhappy that the sentiment stamp was not as crisp as I would have liked but couldn't fiddle about doing another sentiment to put on top - the card was in the envelope before the ink was dry I think!!πŸ˜‰

If you've not yet joined this months challenge, there's still time!

Pink

Another Christmas/Winter themed card to share today.

I am trying very hard to use up my coloured cardstock - in reality I am never going to even make a dent in it, but like to kid myself that I am being very good πŸ˜‡and I am making inroads into the paper mountain.
I have rather a lot of pearlised card in pastel shades.   Hardly Used.    Ever.
Took a pink piece out and was going to make a baby card.    Ended up with this.

No excuses except
1. The stamp was out on the desk as I had used it for something else
and
2. I was inspired by a card seen some years ago on the talented Birgit's blog

This has to go down as one of the quickest cards I have made.
Stamped then embossed the trees in Silver EP onto watercolour card. The stamp is actually quite a big one so I cut off a bit from the top.
I used Victorian Velvet DI as it was the nearest pink shade to the base card and whilst waiting for it to dry I stamped the sentiment (From SU) and silver embossed.
When my watercolour panel was dry, I dotted some sparkly stuff all over it then attached it to the base card. Finished!
I've left the stamp out on the desk. I've left the pearlised card out on the desk too. Might as well batch make a load for Christmas in different shades - I can carry on believeing in that one day I will get to the bottom of the paper pileπŸ˜πŸ˜‰!

Winter

After a glorious sunny day on Wednesday where I was able to walk out in a T shirt, I have been out today in boots and a heavy coat (with a hood!) What a change in the weather! The strong winds turned over all the patio pots and the lashing rain hasn't ceased since last night, so it seems that the 'Indian Summer' may well be gone and Winter is on it's way.

I have leaned towards CAS cards for a long time now - there's something about creating something with minimum embellishments that I like!

Inspired by Pinterest, I inked a background using Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Hickory Smoke.

I don't have many branch stamps - something I intend to rectify as soon as I can! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ So I used an Inkylicious branches stamp and did some primary and secondary stamping in Black and Smokey Grey.
Then stamped again and heat embossed in white.

I thought the bottom of the card looked a little bare so took the edge of a crackle stamp, inked it with smokey grey and secondary stamped.
The sentiment is from another Inkylicious set.

This didn't take me long so will likely make a few more as no doubt I will be panicking near Christmas and needing some quick cards!

I am about to travel down one of my "favorite" 😟😟 motorways as I have 2 Presentations to attend over this weekend. Keeping fingers crossed that the strength of this wind drops a little and I have an untroubled journey.

Thanks for looking.
Hope you all are safe and sound wherever you are. x

CAS x 2

A card for 2 challenges -
CAS Watercolour  is 2 years old! Hard to believe it's been that long since the challenge started but Happy Birthday! Their challenge this month is a colour one chosen by Bonnie - Orange/Green and Brown
and the lovely Mac is hosting the CAS Mix Up challenge - and the elements for that are Metal/Stamping/Your Own Choice. (So mine was Embossing!)  This card was never intended to fit the 2 challenges but I think it contains all the elements!
The leaves were cut using blue metal dies so maybe Marianne Dies? Anyway, I cut them out using some leftover watercolour card then coloured them with water soluble wax pastels, using the 3 colours that Bonnie stipulated in varying degrees of depth.

Another leftover piece used for the wood embossed background which I attached to the base card.
I used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink for the sentiment which is from SU and cut out with a stitched die.
So CAS Watercolour sorted!   When I'd finished though I felt the card was lacking something but didn't know what.

Then I remembered some gold wire which I had - after spending 20 minutes on my hands and knees under the desk I emerged clutching the wire - which I remember saving and thinking it would come in useful.... have no idea where it came from.
I just added it around the sentiment and curled it round the top leaf  - am hoping that wire counts as metal but if it doesn't am sure someone will tell me!

Stamping Sensations October Challenge

This month our challenge is 'AUTUMN COLOURS' at Stamping Sensations.
I love Autumn - love sunshine and warm summer days too - but the colours of Autumn are often spectacular and I love to drive along looking at the changing colours of the trees.
So it will come as no surprise that I chose to use a tree stamp!
It is from Stampendous and is another of my rarely used ones.
I stamped it onto watercolour card using Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.
Out with the Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint.

The stamp is a large one and I thought about a sentiment on the front but decided against it - I remembered that I had these leaf buttons from years ago - took me longer to find them than it did to make the darn card! Found eventually and attached with a little bit of string.

We have the wonderful STAMP ADDICTS as our sponsor this month - we are very lucky to have such great sponsors of all our challenges and if you want to be in with a chance of winning then please follow our rules which are shown on the blog.
We are a stamping challenge and stamping HAS to be the focal point of your entry.

Hope you can find the time to join us - and please take a look at some of the DT's creations - they love visitors!

Holly and Ivy

I took a pic of this card that i finished yesterday and intended to save it for a later post but onto my reading list has just popped up the brand new challenge over at CAS Christmas which has the theme of Birds!
Now I know Halloween is approaching but to have a challenge theme for a card I literally just finished is - well - a little bit spooky!!

This card was just made to go into my stash for me to send at Christmas and has used up a few odd bits of watercolour card.

Simple brick embossed background, a couple of dies and a stamp! Oh and a leftover piece of vellum too!

The stamp was a freebie which has never been used, coloured with watercolours and fussy cut.
Both ivy and holly dies also watercoloured and I added a bit  of Red Nuvo drops to the holly (not sure they look  like berries but you get the idea!) and a little bit of white embossing powder to the ivy leaves.

The sentiment stamp is an old wood backed one, part of a set of  Papermania Christmas sentiment stamps I bought when I embarked on my card making a long time ago. I used Olympia Green Versafine ink then clear embossed.

Didn't take too long to make and is reasonably flat so will be OK to post too!

A week gone...

So much for me having time to come and idle away in blogland!
A week has gone by since I last posted, although I have found time to do a few things at home.
I made lots of mess 😁😁 with Pixie Powders and Brushos on watercolour card and have made a couple of cards with some of the backgrounds.
We are currently enjoying a lovely spell of warm weather and I am loving watch the trees change colour.
This inspired this card really -
A variety of dies used on one of my inky backgrounds and they have a lovely glimmer to them in real life.
The paper behind the circle die is stamped in Vintage Sepia and the stamp is Hardwood from SU.

The sentiment is from Inkylicious, heat embossed in Copper onto a scrap of vellum and slipped behind the circle cut out.
A few Antique Copper Pixie Powder splashes onto the plain white card and a little brushing with Tea Dye round the edges and done.

In at the Last Minute!

It has been so long since I managed to join Loll and Co over at CAS Mix Up and I literally have made it this month at the last gasp as the challenge closes on 24th!

The challenge this month is to use markers on your stamps as well as Stamping and your choice. So I have chosen die cutting as my third choice.
The stamp I used is one of my 'Go To' every year at Christmas. Its Penny Black 'Poinsettia and Pine' and is one of the very few wood backed stamps that I still own.

I used Distress Markers in Festive Berries, Pine Needles and a tiny bit of Blueprint Sketch. I had several attempts at spritzing and stamping but none of them I was happy with so eventually after another failed attempt I didn't even dry the stamp, just inked over it and stamped!

Some Gold Liquid Pearls in the centre with a dusting of  yellow fine glitter  and another PB stamp inked in Festive Berries for the sentiment.

The watercolour card and the layer behind were die cut from odd bits so am paying a long awaited visit to the Playground too.

If you follow me on Facebook, you will know that it has been a different kind of day for me today - sadly, we had one of our Internationals diagnosed with a acute myeloid leukemia earlier this year and she hasn't left hospital since - she is just 29 years old.
So in aid of a good cause we decided to recreate 'Calendar Girls' (and boys!!) with a bowls theme and today was my day to 'bare all' for the photo shoot! Boy was it cold!
The pic has turned out really well and although I was very apprehensive (as were the others) we have come away feeling rather proud of ourselves and happy that we are raising money for a worthwhile cause!  https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/hot-shots-of-bowls

Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you're doing! x
