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.

Flower Postcard

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all have something fabulous planned for today.  I have a card to make this morning and then were going to my Sister's for lunch, then I'm planning to be back in my craft room and videoing another water colouring tutorial.

I have coloured up this beautiful postcard stamp by Noor!Design available from Noor!DesingUK.  I love the Noor stamps, they are so versatile and require little colouring.  You could use Versamark Ink and add pan pastels or chalks to achieve a similar result.

The stamps are actually easy to colour as the shading has already been done for you.

The complimentary diecut flower is from the latest Noor!Design release and I have used the die as a stencil and added dutch doobadoo structure paste, love love this stuff. I kept it to a thin coat so that it didn't spread.

On the postcard itself I coloured randomly on the remaining white sections using copic markers BG0000, BV0000 and BV02.

I used the square frame and added a panel of matching paper.  The flowers were finished off with Vintage Flourish leaves, another favourite die of mine.

A close up of the butterfly.  I added 3 layers.  The largest from the Butterfly edge die and the 2nd and 3rd butterfly from the 2pcs Butterfly die set.

Here's a close up of the Butterfly Border Die, isn't it gorgeous, you know I'm going to be using it alot don't you, but at least now I have two to choose from.

I have also used a Noor!Design tag and tucked behind the postcoard, which I have also edged with the top section of the frame and 3 corners set.

Copic Ingredients:-
Flower V17, V15, V12, BV0000
Background BG0000, BV02, BV0000 and for the shading I added some V12 and N3

Papers, Lace and Flowers are all from Live and Love Crafts.

Oval pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
