BEADED TREE

Morning everyone

Here we are, Friday again!  And yes I have a card using a topper I made trimming the tree with beads.  I loved doing these you know, it was time consuming but so worth it and no different to sitting colouring for hours.

Again I have used Silver Gilding Polish. 

The dies are from Noor Design UK and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I love these Lilies!




Thanks for looking

UNLOADED BAG

Morning everyone

Here I have an empty loaded bag which I made recently.  I just loved making these.  The idea is that there are pockets here and there, and then the bag is stuffed with little bits of this and that to form gifts.  I just love this idea.

The papers and flowers and pearl button were from Noor Design UK and the rest came from my stash.


Thanks for looking,

ANOTHER LACE TREE

Very many thanks for stopping by.

VINTAGE FATHER CHRISTMAS

Hi Everyone

Firstly, let me say a huge thank you for all the lovely comments I am receiving, I really do appreciate this.  I read every one and although I may be a bit slow in returning the compliment, I do try and do this when I am able.

Can you believe we are in December already!  It seems to have crept upon us.  I reckon now is a good moment to share a few Christmas cards even though they may have been in my photos folder a while.

It will come as no surprise to see a card with a Vintage image.  I love the Vintage Father Christmas images.

I think the dies would be from Noor Design UK and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.




Thanks for stopping by,

VINTAGE ANGELS

Hi everyone

Here I have another Vintagey card which I made, again back in August 2016. I always have loved this type of layout, but somehow I struggle to photograph them to their best advantage.

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Star shape, and selected papers which I purchased from Live and Love Crafts when that lovely shop was open.  The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The cheesecloth is available to purchase from Noor Design UK and it really is the finest quality..



Thanks for stopping by.

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone

I notice the date on this photo is 2016!  So I am guessing as I usually make Christmas cards early it must have been made probably summer 2016!

It is a fairly simple design, using the large die-cuts to form the background shape, and the JOY die curving round the image at the top left corner.

I just love the vintage images!  Very often we tire of a type of image and move onto something else, but I never tire of these.

The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.



Thanks for stopping by.

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone

Here we have another Vintagey design, and this one is one I made way back when!?  I know that by the layout!  It is one I used such a lot at one time.  Iam guessing that it was very much a stash card to be honest.  The two dies were from Noor Design UK, I do know that.  And the flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts originally.



Thanks for stopping by.

VINTAGE LADY

Hi everyone

I am gradually wading through my saved photos but it has got to the stage where I am not sure just what products I used.  This is one of those cards, and it was made a while ago.  What I do know is that I love that image!  And I also know that it is one I purchased from Live and Love Crafts when they were open.  How we miss Sandy and her lovely shop!

The two dies, a butterfly border die and a leafy border die both came from Noor Design UK and the flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.



Thanks for stopping by.

A MAGIC MOONLIGHT MOMENT

Hi everyone

I had a Magic Moonlight Moment here.  I have always loved this image from Magic Moonlight and it is one I turn to very often whilst looking through their selection of free images.

There are one or two die-cuts peeping through here and there.  Everything came from Wild Orchid Crafts. Noor Design UK and my stash.



Have a good weekend everyone.  And thanks for stopping by.

PION OR MAJA

Hi everyone,

Well, I clean forget which papers I used here.  I made this card some time ago, and I know I had fun using up things from my stash of Pion and Maja papers etc.  It was very much a card made from stash because the flowers are some I had in my box for ages and they just seemed to be the right colour to co-ordinate.



Thanks for stopping by.

NO IMAGE GIFT BAG


Hi everyone

There is not a lot to say about this one really.  It is a gift bag |I altered using up bits from my stash.  You will see three different papers were used, and yes they were scraps from my stash.  The lace and trim are both from my stash and the flowers are from Noor Design UK.


Thanks for stopping by.

PION FUN


Hi everyone

It was a while back when I made this card but I remember I had a lot of fun using some of my Pion products.

The cheesecloth and trim came from Noor Design UK, as did the JOY die at the top left and the roses.  The roses are tinged with Dutch Doobadoo Structure paste.  Anything else came from my stash.

MERRY CHRISTMAS DIE


Hi everyone

Well I hope you all had a good weekend.

Here today we have a card I made recently, again using Gilding Polish on the die-cuts and part of the embossed background.

The tree is a Digi image which I beaded.

The embellishments came from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and of course my stash.

The Merry Christmas die-cut is a curved JOY die which I cut up to form the wording at the top right corner.  I just love this die.  It came from Noor Design UK a few months ago.  The red trim came from my stash as did the lace beneath.


Thanks for stopping by.

WINDOW CARD


Hi everyone

And another window card!  I really do love making window cards!  

This card is a recent one I made adding Gilding Polish to the die-cuts and part of the embossed background.  I added a little lace to dress the window and quite like the effect.  The embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design UK.  And of course from my stash.



Happy weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by,

LACE TREE

Hi everyone

Here I have a card to show you which I made a little while ago.  The photo is not very straight I am afraid.

First I made the lace tree.  This was simply a triangle of card which I added the lace and pearl trim to.  I first made one of these some years ago and was reminded to make some more a few weeks ago.  My style has changed somewhat since those days though, I add so much more to my cards these days.  This one was supposed to be less elaborate but somehow I just do not seem to be able to make cards without adding embellishments!



Thanks for stopping by.

HOBBY HOUSE TOPPER - Christmas


Hi everyone

Today I am sharing a card I made using one of the lovely Hobby House Toppers.  This set was a gift to me in the Summer and I am finding it so useful!

So, here we have an embossed background.  I love the embossed look!  I have used a selection of die-cuts and beautiful embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The flowers are tinged with Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste.  I cannot get enough of that stuff!  And anything else came from my stash.



Thanks for stopping by.

THROUGH THE WINDOW


Hi everyone

I am a little late today in posting.  The system seems to have gone wrong somewhere! lol  However, I am here with a tag card which I made a while ago using this lovely window die which I purchased from Noor Design UK earlier in the year.  I have used this die such a lot.

This is quite a simple design, using pretty papers and image behind the window and embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design UK.  It will come as no surprise that I delved into my stash too.



Thanks for stopping by, and again for all your lovely comments too.

NO IMAGE CARD Take 2

Morning everyone

Well, I am gradually wading through my saved photos to share, but there is a good way to go yet.

I have another card with no image to share today.  You know I was pretty amazed that I could do this sort of card.  It was quite a challenge for me.  I posted one of these the other week, but this was made at the same time.  I sort of got quite hooked on making these.

The lovely window die and papers were from Noor Design UK as were some of the embellishments.  I think the papers were Lemoncraft.  Anything else was from either Wild Orchid Crafts or my stash.

CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG

Morning everyone

I have a photo of a Gift Bag which I made to share today.

Yes this is a stamped image!  One I coloured up some time ago, but that will come as no surprise to you!  It is an old Magnolia stamp.

This was very much made from my stash.  The embellishments were from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design UK.  You will just be able to see the Structure paste from Dutch Doobadoo on the flowers I think.

As always,  it is the easiest theme ever - Anything Goes Christmas!

The papers are from a pack called 'Cricket on the Heath' by Lemoncraft I think? The Shabby white embellishments were from Noor Design UK, as was the Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste which has been used to tinge the embellishments.  Love this stuff!  The dies all came from Noor Design UK.

GIFT BAG

Morning everyone

Thursday already!  Where is the week going to!  It seems to be flying by so fast!

I am sharing a photo of a Gift bag I made some time ago.  I think this could be suitable for many occasions, even Christmas.

ART DECO CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone,

I am here today with another card to share.  Well, when I was looking through my toppers a while back I came across some Art Deco images.  I must admit I do love these images and they are a refreshing change from my normal images I use.

I opted to use a layout which first inspired me from a lovely lady's Blog.  ( http://eulandasilvey.blogspot.co.uk/ ).  Eulanda is such a talented lady and a lovely friend too.

The image was quite large and this has made for quite a large card.  I simply added some embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and from my stash.



Thanks for stopping by and also for your lovely comments I am receiving.  I do appreciate those more than you will ever know.

BEADED TREE



Hi everyone

Well, we are to the end of another week again, so I am finishing with another beaded tree image.  It was a digi image (I think?) which I dressed with beads etc.  I used Glossy Accents to stick them.  I find Glossy Accents so useful!  

Again I have used Gilding Wax/polish, this time in gold, on the die-cuts and the embossed background too.

I just want to keep using the Merry Christmas die over and over again!  I just love it!  That got daubed with Gilding Polish too!  The embellishments were a mixture from Noor Design UK, Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash.


Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Weekend to you all.

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS SHAKER CARD

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share in the form of a Shaker Card.  I had been itching to try one of these.

Yes more of the lovely Gilding Polish/Wax!  Once I got using this I could not stop!  

I used a set of shaker dies which I purchased from Maddy Lisa.  These were so useful and saved all the fiddling about with getting the right sizes etc.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design Uk.  I have added the lovely Dutch Doobadoo Structure past in parts too.


Thanks for stopping by,

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone

Here I have a card using a lovely Vintage Father Christmas image.  I believe this image was from one of the Images from the Past available at Noor Design Uk, but I am unsure on this.

I have used a selection of dies and have applied Gilding Polish.  The flowers arefrom Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design Uk and anything else came from my stash.



Again, very many thanks for stopping by.

SYLVIA ZET - HOBBY HOUSE TOPPER

Hi everyone

I am back today with a card to share using a lovely image created by Sylvia Zet in the form of a Hobby House Topper.  I absolutely love this image.  Again I have used items from Noor Design Uk and Wild Orchid Crafts.  Anything else is from my stash.

I tried a little different layout on this card and must confess I will be doing this again as I love it.  It was one that just sort of happened, if you know what I mean.

PION NORTH POLE

Hi everyone

Did you have a good weekend?

Here I have a card to share which I made some time ago using the Pion 'North Pole' papers and images.  These were purchased from Noor Design UK, as were some of the embellishments etc too.  The remaining embellishments were from Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash.  You will see I have been using the Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste again too.




Thank you so much for stopping by.

NO IMAGE CARD

Hi everyone,

A card with mo image?  This was a new mission for me!  But once I got going I found not only could I do it! lol but I was actually pleased with the result.  I have had this one saved in my saved photos folder for a while now so it is time I posted it on my Blog.

You will gather that I just love the window die which I purchased from Noor Design UK and at that time the lovely sprigs and fir cones were in stock too.  In addition there is a mixture of embellishments both from Noor and also from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I love the addition of cheesecloth.  I keep forgetting to use that, I must make a note to use it more often again.  The one I purchased from Tracy at Noor Design UK really is the finest quality and a joy to use.



Well, I think that is it for this week, so I will wish you a very happy weekend, and again thank you so much for stopping by.

BEADED TREE

Hi everyone

This is a photo of a card I made very recently.  You might recall that I had been introduced to using Gilding Wax/Gilding Polish?  Well as is often the case I got completely carried away with it.  I love the effect.  I must confess I found the Gilding Polish much more to my budget than the Wax although I do love them both.

The tree?  Well it is a Digi image which I have very carefully dressed with pearls and beads using Glossy Accents to adhere them.  I am just loving the Merry Christmas Die which I think I purchased from Noor Design Uk?    You will see I have added silver Gilding Polish there too.  There are lots of embellishments from both Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design Uk.  And the fabulous JOY charm was a gift from a lovely friend.  Anything else came from my stash.

I just loved making these beaded tree cards and using the Gilding Polish and will definitely be doing it again!  I would love a Gilding Polish in baby pink, if anyone knows where I can get one please do tell me?



As always thanks for taking the time to stop by.

PENNY BLACK CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone,

Yes I was very into Christmas when I made these cards I am posting this week.  In fact I was making Christmas cards right throughout the Summer months.  

So, this card was made using a a lovely Penny Black image which was stamped up with this quirky little sentiment some years ago by a lovely friend of mine.  We had such a lovely Summer that year, it was when I was first introduced to stamping.  Well, when I was looking through my stash I came across this image and new I wanted to use it right away.

I have added an assortment of die-cuts including the lovely Window which has pearls added for effect.  Minimal embellishments have been added this time.  Unusual for me I know!  Anyhow I hope you like it.



As always thank you so much for stopping by,

PION CHRISTMAS


Hi everyone

I have absolutely no mojo at the moment so I have decided to have a week of posting a few saved photos of the cards I made recently.  Maybe something will spark me off into making again during the next week or so if I have a week of blogging!  I aim to schedule some posts now for the coming two weeks.

So, here we go with my first one for today where I used Pion materials, die-cuts and a mixture of lovely embellishments a lot of which were purchased from Noor Design UK.  The pom pom trim I think I purchased from Ribbon Girl and anything else came from my stash.




I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
