Sweet Kisses


Hi everyone, I have decided to take a break from Facebook and my Blog until the beginning of next year. With the loss of our Fur Baby and health problems I feel I need some time out. So my future posts are all scheduled and I will just be popping on to Instagram when I can at present. 

Today for my DT post at Cherish The Memory I am sharing with you all some more inspiration using the beautiful Die Cut pads from the Studio Light Range along with one of their stamp sets.These pads are super fun to create with and ideal for this time of year when you need several Christmas cards. Cherish The Memory have a fab range of this collection so do check them out HERE.


For this card I chose a variety of the Die Cut designs inking and tattering at the edges. My main images I added some stamping using the mistletoe wreath in the stamp plate and white Embossing powder. I put a little cut into my stamp so I was able to stretch it out to go around my circles. I also stamped some tiny stars and embossed with a pink glitter powder.



My foilage I shaped on my Embossing mat, adding Ink to the edges and some Stickles and ribbon flowers.


Finishing my card with some sparkling gems and more Stickles.

Which Way to Santa ?


Hi everyone, today for my Design Team post at Craft Consortium I am sharing some Festive inspiration using one of their fantastic Decoupage Papers. They have a vast range of brilliant designs for every type of crafter so do check them all out HERE.


I bought my sign paper mâché sign in Hobbycraft and I gave it a layer of Gesso paint applying it with a baby wipe. It's far quicker this way and you don't end up with brush marks. Once dry I used Mod Podge Matt and glued my Decoupage paper on top. On this design I opted to layer on the sheet and folded and glued in place the papers as I wanted to see the full effect of the paper rather than it being torn in this design.


Once all in place I added another layer of Mod Podge but this time the Sparkle one, which certainly does make it glisten when the light catches it.


I added Icicles cut from Craft Consortiums amazing Non shed glitter card, lots of die cut Snowflakes filled with sparkly Gems.


Rudolph is an MDF shape I covered in different Embossing powders adding his red sparkly nose and attaching Santa's Magic key to his neck with silver ribbon.

Here is a selection of other pictures for you to enjoy.








I do hope you feel inspired to make some Festive Home Decor.

Tis the Season


Hi everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some Festive inspiration using their super fun new Brad the Reindeer Die.


I started by cutting out my background layers all in glitter card for lots of sparkle. My snowflake I layered two different snowflake Dies to form my snowflower adding lots of bling onto it. This was then placed onto my Holly Flourish which I cut into sections and placed around my snowflower.


Brad was cut out in a mixture of kraft, cream and glitter cardstock. I added a little Distress Ink onto the edges of his face. The antlers I used Distress Powder and a white Embossing powder for added texture.

Joy to the World


Hi everyone and welcome to my DT post for Cheery Lynn Designs. Gosh I can't believe how fast we are now approaching the end of the year and it will soon be Thanksgiving Day for all our American friends. So today my card is inspired by this celebration.


I started by distressing my 2 layers of Maja Design papers at the edges and layered onto my card. I cut out my wreath in 3 shades of paper from the same pad, cutting 2 of my wreaths so they would stretch out a little larger than the base one. The cut was hidden by my drop shadowed reindeer.


My large sunflower was coloured with Copic Pens and Micro Beads added into the centre. The smaller sunflowers I added Flowersoft into the centres and also touches onto the wreath. My berries were coloured with Copic and 2 layers of Glossy accents added letting them dry between coats. Finishing with arranging my bouquet onto my card.

Let It Snow


Hi everyone today I'm sharing my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs. The clocks changed last weekend in Scotland and there is definitely a wintry feel in the air now which inspired me to make my winter scene using the pretty Maja Design papers and some of our vast range of amazing Festive and Winter dies.


I started my card by tattering at the edges two layers of paper and adding a scattering of Frantage for a snowy effect. My rosette styled Snowflower was cut out in glitter card adding Holly, Pine Branches and layering on my cute snowman.


My Let It Snow was drop shadowed and layered onto my Stackers with a little cheesecloth and Frantage for extra detail. I mounted my Dancing Snow Flurries Border around my sign using sections of this Die to form the oval shape.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
