Christmas Already

Hello Fellow Crafters

Christmas is fast approaching.
A friends daughter wanted me to make her a few cards 
that weren't religious so I thought I'd use 
Tim Holtz little Gems.


If you don't already have any of these stamps they are worth
 consideration before next Christmas.

Yu can't see it in these photos but some backgrounds have 
snow flakes embossed with Bridal Tinsel. 
 I have also glittered them up in a few places.





My project in January is to find a better way to photograph my cards.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas.
Remembering that "Jesus is the reason for the season".

Blessings to all,
Crafty Hugs,

Beginning to feel like Christmas

I thought maybe it was time to do a Christmas card 
so I thought I'd do a fun one for a change.
The clear stand is covering up the letter "a" in the sentiment
which came from a set of Christmas stamps in a crafter's magazine a few years ago.




Items Used:

I thought I'd make it look a bit like a room with wall paper.

Window is from First Edition Craft Dies - Windows  (There are four windows)
Christmas Tree from Frantic Stamper - Oregon Fir
Clouds are Memory Box - Fluffy Clouds

My favourite Stamps though are the 
Tim Holtz  Stamps - Mini Bird Crazy and Things.
It has everything you could want to 
place these birds in any situation.
They are so versatile and well worth the outlay.
I also used the Tim Holtz Dies - Mini Crazy Birds and Things
Often I manage to get colour in their eyes and the dies can cut out 
fresh ones so they are nice and white.

Great time to buy them with Bizzy Bec having 25% off store wide.

Don't forget to get a card made and added to our challengers.
You never know - you might win!

Keep enjoying your craft.

Crafty Hugs,
Carol

Small Bunch of Flowers

I do enjoy colouring in flowers and the like.  
I mostly use pencils as I feel I have more control with them.
I am in awe of what some people can do with pens.


 

Items Used:

Marianne Designs - Anja Squares
Honey Bee Stamps - Coamos

Enjoy your crafting people.

Peek a Boo Pedal Pusher Card

My friend is into craft as well so I thought the sign says it all.  
Off to the craft sale, whatever is in the other direction we don't care.


Stamp Art Impressions  -  Pedal Pushers
Windows cut with Spellbinders Circle and 
Scallop Circles

Sign Post not sure now sorry, I wish I knew.
Bec has a single one available 
Taylored Expressions - Sign Post


I used a decorative paper and a large number 


Instructions how to make the card are on this site 
https://lovenstamps.com/wow-card-how-to-make-a-peek-a-boo-flip-card/

It's easier than you might think and fun for the receiver.

I did add flowers to the front but forgot to take a photo.

Many Blessings,
Crafty Hugs from Carol x

Crazy Friends

I do like the Art Impressions Stamps and stamp sets.
They are a lot of fun.

Spinner Square Pop Up Card

Here at last, running a little later than usual.

I thought I'd use my newest Die set today
Karen Burniston - Spinner Square Pop Up
Very reasonably priced and on special at Bizzy Bec's Store.

It's a really fun card to make and pop ups often impress though not much work.
especially when you have the right equipment.






Wild Rose Studio Stamps - Bella and Daisy


It has lots of potential for using many different ways.
I certainly needed the instructions for the first time  click here for instructions.


I did try to video my card to see even the amateur can get it to run smoothly 
but it wasn't compatible with the site.
