Vintage Christmas Card

Morning Everyone,

I have a vintage card for you today made using the MajaDesign A Gift For You collection.  The theme set by Sandy at Live and Love Crafts this week is Snowflakes, right up my street, lol.

I have used pine cones and a cinamon stick and tied with twine.

I have used a Noor Design Merry Christmas Postcard Stamp.

The snowflake has a mini snowflake added to the centre with a dashing of snow tex.  These snowflakes are new arrivals to LLC.

I have used a new Pearl and Rhinestone Button and added to the centre of the Noor Design 8 Point die cut, perfect.

I have used the Noor Design  Die for the beautiful filagree fence.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo brick stencil and Dutch Doobadoo structure paste for the brickwork effect.

Criss Cross Applesauce

Hello Everyone,

I have almost forgotten to post this beautiful little lady called Criss Cross Applesauce from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. This card was also recently featured on Create and Craft TV Show and I missed it, lol.  Not to worry I have a couple more projects going on in the new year.

She is coloured with distress inks and layered onto the beautifully designed Noor!Design Oval frame, isn't it gorgeous.  You could use this as a doily or add paper to the oval panel and use as an embellishment.  

If your in the UK you can also get Criss Cross Applesauce from BunnyZoe 

The sentiments are from the Vintage Affection Sets available at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.

The oval frame is available from Noor!Design UK.

The sentiment is from the Vintage Affections Set HERE

I have used the Vintage Flourishes Butterfly die and cut it once in white and once in patterend paper and positioned a flower in the centre, one of my favourite Noor!Design dies and available in my very own shop, lol, that still sounds weird saying that.

The papers and flowers are from Live and Love crafts.

Have a good day.

Christmas Symbol

Morning ,

Here we are again, Monday and just 6 weeks to Christmas, can you believe it.  I haven't even started my Christmas shopping, thank goodness for the internet.

This week at Live and Love crafts Sandy has given us the theme of "Christmas Symbol" to follow.  I believe I have a couple in this card. My symbols is an obvious one, the christmas tree which I have done in white and used some pearl string around it.

My second symbol to me is the house, or the front door with a few bricks, lol.  To me Christmas is about family and opening the door and welcoming everyone for a little christmas cheer.

I have used the MajaDesign "A Gift For You" 6x6 paper pad.  Love love this collection.

I have used Cinamon sticks tied with natural hemp cord, cones, flower spray and red berries.  The white rose was made using the roses roll up die.

I have added to the Dutch Doobadoo Front Door a candy stick charm and a prima resin door lock.

Here's the tree with some pearl string wrapped around it.  You can also see on the right hand side the Noor!Design Snowflake border die and I have added little flower centres using the Dutchdooboo Stencil and structure paste.  I added some red brick disress ink to the mix and and applied the paste through the stencil onto white card.  Added a little irridescent fine glitter and then cut out the individual flowers and added to the centres of the snowflakes and also onto the door panels.  They match the paper :)

I have added a little snowtex to the branches of the trees.  You can also see the gorgeous lace at the bottom too.

A close up of the cinamon sticks tied with natural hemp cord and a little snow tex.  You can also see the softwood bricks from DutchDoobadoo below, also covered in snow tex.

The bark heart also got a dashing of snow tex and structure paste.  You can also see the little poinsettas on the paper.
