How Charming

Good morning to you

It's Happy Friday again and another lovely little Christmas card to share with you

I went with a Hobby House Mo Manning Topper

I used a base layer of cream and this is the contrast also.  I matched the topper with these gorgeous papers from a pack I bought at Grimsby Crafts.
I used a grand decorative circle nestie, a couple of Woodware punched tags some ribbon flowers from my stash.
Before finishing of with those tiny tiny pearls and the charm from the Hobby House, link in my side bar.

A CAS Thank you

Good morning to you all

Thought I would pop on today and share with you a card that I created to say thank you to a lovely lady in our area, who made such a lovely spray of flowers for a funeral I needed to attend, sorry no photo's of the flowers, but here is the card, I used some of my new stamps and yes it is another CAS, it is all I could manage around the painting of my kitchen lol.

The base card is black to allow me to add just the one layer and this colour picked up the colours on the creation. I had earlier cut out a circle so used this to create the colour using memento inks.  I stamped the grasses in black along with the butterflies and the sentiment.  I added some stickles to the grasses and some small pearls from the Hobby House to the butterflies and voila. 

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Don't forget my current candy in the side bar :)

Morning to you all

from


Using
Dies -Merry Xmas


My photography does not show this well at all.  The base layer is green mirror card and then a layer of red too, I then added the white layer before adding the green mirror card cut die.  I cut the die again in the red and added the cut outs from the red into the green, looks really effective honestly.

There is a very special reason for this theme, and I do hope that you will hop over to the main site to find out what the reason is and leave some love

Here is my card for this special reason but you will find lots more yummy creations over on the main site.
I made a CAS card, and chose to colour my image and leave the back ground clean.  I know not like me at all, however I did so want to purely focus on my colouring on this one

I used some gorgeous golden yellow card to frame this image, and only added three strands of ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and four gold pearls from the Hobby House.  
Please see where I shop for the links

Here is the closeup of the copic coloured image

Such a Sweetie

Good morning to you

Today is my day over at the


to Inspire you

So a while ago I had played and coloured up this gorgeous image to match some of my newer papers so created a card for my sale's box with them

I made a birthday card, using a pre made base card
The base colour is cream and I used some those gorgeous spots and stripes for the layers.  I used the large oval MFT pierced die and then a grand scallop oval to frame it.  The image plate was decorated with distress inked Card-io Majestix stamps such a pretty look, I thought any way.  I added some pretty lace a band of string pearls (from the Hobby House).  A Wild Rose Studio sentiment.  The flowers from Clickit4Crafts, the Joy Butterfly die. I added a cream floral cameo and aura rhinestones from the Hobby House, before adding my usual gorgeous bow.
All shop links are in the page above

The ribbon for this bow is called


This allows you to create the loops and the tails exactly as you want them, okay it does what you want it too, which sometimes ribbons just don't do, never mind how much persuading you do.

Here is a close up of the copic coloured image
Isn't she lovely :)

All Fluffy and soft

Good morning to you all

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, yesterday I was painting again, this time with the top coat, getting there and looking great, so cannot wait for it to be finished.

Anyway today I thought I would share a Xmas card I made a while ago but have not posted it as yet, I sort of forgot it, shame on me................ so here it is


white fun flock for her cloud, love the depth it gives

The base layer is cream as is the contrast and the papers are from my stash, one might be Kanban.  The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and pleated down the edge.
The flowers are Hobby House except the stamens which are from my stash and those little Rhinestone sparkles peaking out and the red pearls are of course from the Hobby House
see the page above for where I shop.

Here is a close up of the image using that gorgeous topper and adding some liquid applique and some fun flock for the cloud.

Hanging Around with Wild Rose Studio

Good morning to you all

I have some more of those

Dies and Papers

from the New Release at


along with the new release image too

So Using
Dies - Snow Frame and Frosty Corner (New Release)
Papers - Frosted Lace (New Release)
Image - Mouse on Bauble (New Release)
Sentiment - Christmas Labels

Again I went a little wild with the glitter


The base layer and contrast is pink picking up those gorgeous holly pink papers, I adore these new teal papers too.  Anyway I layered up my layers wrapped my ribbon around, raised the image with its lovely die surround.  Added the Frosty corner die and then topped this with the snowflakes in the background papers.  I glittered all my dies up and added rhinestones nearly everywhere I could before adding the charm and tiny pink pearl medallion and the sentiment. All embellishments except the pearl medallion are from the Hobby House.
See the page above for those links.

The image has been coloured with copics, with beads of stickles for the furry bits. 
Now I have been asked a few times how I get my fluffy bits to look so raised and sparkly, so for those that have asked, I asked Matt to video me adding the stickles to this image, so if you are interested you can find the tutorial 


and it would not be fair not to show a close up of the Frosty Corner Die so here you are

Wild Rose Studio New Release to Die for !!

Good morning to you all

I have been dying to share this lovely creation with you all, showcasing not only those new images but those new

Dies and Papers

from the New Release at

So Using
Dies - Snow Frame and Lacy Snowflake (New Release)
Papers - Frosted Lace (New Release)
Image - Girl with Xmas Presents (New Release)
Sentiment - Christmas Labels

I made a very glittery Christmas card.

The base layer is a lovely soft blue.  I layered up those gorgeous new papers before adding the Lacy Snowflake that I had glittered up.  I cut out the image using the MFT rectangle pierced die (the next one down from the largest as this is a perfect fit for the new Snow Frame)  I cut out the Snow Frame in white card distressed it and glittered this up too.  I added a band of ribbon around the base layers and added a triple bow.  I hung a snowflake from a jump ring with some chain from the centre of the Lacy Snowflake and placed the sentiment on top after distressing the edges on this too.  The embellishments added are: pearls, fancy rhinestone button, ribbon and charm from the Hobby House and the pink poinsettia from my stash.
See the page above for those links.

The image has been coloured with copics, with beads of stickles for her furry bits and a dot on the centre of the poinsettia. You can see that gorgeous die frame in this shot.

so very pretty and delicate
