Cold and Frosty DT Card

Im a little late with this post, opps !!!! this months challenge over at Crafty Calender Challenge is cold and frosty. I made this card using crafty individual stamp 281 which I stamped using black archival ink, I dressed the background using tumbled glass distress ink and a distressing tool. I then added gems and stickles to my image. I then used my sewing machine to add some stitched detail.

On the 12th Day of Christmas ....

... my dear Tim send to me hahahahaha The 12 Tags of Chrisssssttttmassssss. Ok you can pretend that I was singing that hehehehehe Im on a roll today with the blogging !!!! as most of you will know its the start of Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas, here is my interpretation of todays tag

All of the products used are available and in stock, instead of plain white embossing powder I used snowflake embossing tinsle which I think looks really nice and Im really loving the pinecones :) I didnt have any toothpicks so I used cottonbuds, I just cut the ends off and used the plastic bit.

You can find Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas here with instruction on how to create this stunning tag xxx

Spooky Bunting

I love Halloweeen !!!! I made this cool spooky bunting to hang on my fireplace. I used one of the sizzix famelits called banner to make the triangles, I used wild honey, rusty hinge and barn door distress inks to colour my bunting the background stamp is from the Tim Holtz Halloween Silhouettes set which I stamped in Rusty Hinge. The rosettes are the tim holtz decorative strip mini rosette which again I coloured using wild honey, rusty hinge and barn door. I spritz the whole thing using heirloom gold perfect pearls mists to give it a bit of shimmer (love these mists sooooo much !!!) the letters are Tom Holtz idea-ology alpha parts. I cant wait to carve my pumpkin ready for halloween now, think ill docorate the fireplace later? have a fab weekend everyone xxxx

Octopode Factory Challenge - Guest DT

The lovely and very talented Lily Chilvers asked me if I would be a guest designer for The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge, being as I LOVE Octopode stamps it was a no brainer, yes please Lily :) This week the challenge is to use the colours Orange and Black. This to me makes me think of halloween so I used the gorgeous Pumpkin and Ghost Halloween images and set to work creating this journal page. I used Claudine Hellmuth paints for my background and all the other images on this page including the text are Stampotique stamps.

September Journal Calender Challenge

Opps im a bit late this my journal page this month !!!! heres is my September pages for Kate Cranes Journal Calander Challenge.

I've used one of the scrummy Suzi Blu stamps called spring summer chic and also one of the new Dylusions sets for the sentiment. I didnt really plan this page it just kind of happened over the month, like most of my calender pages do, the colours are more vibrant in real life this piccie makes it look a bit dull.

Im really looking forward to the next few days im off to Harrogate this afternoon to spend the next few days with the lovely Dyan at AFTH on the Dina Wakely Sun, Moon and Stars Journal Workshop, cant wait :)

Dont worry about still ordering from the shop while im away as Steve and my lovely Jay will be doing all the orders as usual while im away, what more could a girl ask for 3 days of journal bliss while the boys do all the work hahahaha perfect :)
