A Little Snowy Xmas

Good morning to you all

What a lovely day it was yesterday, here is hoping today joins it, as I would love to get the grass cut, now you saying to yourself, then why did she not do it yesterday, ah well I was booked to do other things yesterday..................... so today it will be!!

I thought I would share with you another one of my CAS cards that has gone in the box for the fayre in November, so here it is


Not much to say on this one as it is a pre made card blank and a image square not even a surround but then the card blank is cream.  It is one of my not used enough Penny Black images and I coloured it in copics with some added stickles for that frosty feel.

Christmas Cuties

Good morning to you all

I have been quiet haven't I, but I have had a few bits to get on with and out the way, but I am pleased to say that they are all done, boxed and in the post.  Which means I have had time to play with my Silhouette Cameo PixScan mat and software..

Verdict - wow, now I started by watching a video which was fabulous and I saved to my pinterest if you are wanting to see what I watched.  I went with the photo taking as this was what they used in the video however I found that it was harder to take a photo that was accepted by the software, however there is a scan feature not shown on the video, so I clicked on this thinking I would have to collaborate it and no the software had already found it.  So I placed some of my stamped WRS sentiments onto the matt, shoved them in the scanner and scanned, oops must make sure that the scanner can see the left or right registration marks.  So I scanned again and straight into my machine, and whilst it was doing it's thing I loaded it into my silhouette and once I had traced the outline and was happy which took seconds I sent it to cut. Perfection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! over the moon.  I have just cut in seconds, definitely beats a knife one of my WRS images out, to cool, love it.

Anyway enough of that I also put my name on a table for a Christmas fayre so I am in Christmas production, here is one of many CAS cards for my table.


I do love just colouring and amazed myself that if you look there are NO embellishments at all :)

A Frosty Xmas Card

Morning to you all

As you know it is my day to inspire you with those fabulous

Wild Rose Studio

products, so today I have this little number for you

Using
Dies - Snowflake Corner
Image - Girl with Snowman
Papers - Frosted Lace


I do love the blues and the white giving it that frosty feel

The base layer on this one is blue as is the contrast.  I used those die-namics pierced dies to cut out the image plate and the surround and then went with that lovely frosty corner die which I used on the two corners. Before adding the two little bows, the florals and the pearls and rhinestones.

Here is a close up of the die

and of course the close up of the copic coloured image with stickles for the fur and sakuro clear gel star for the snowman.

Anniversary Wishes

Good morning to you all

Today is my chosen day to inspire you for 


Today I have gone with a card.  I made this lovely PATP edged card for my Aunt and Uncle who were celebrating 40 years of marriage and what a special day it was with a double Lancaster Flyby too :)
I just had to use the Wild Rose Studio image - Parisian Stroll and those gorgeous Wedding Bells papers along with the sentiment from the Wedding Circles set, the dies are also Wild Rose Studio oval frame and ornate heart
I created the card using a 6 3/4 square and that lovely MS double heart punch and then used my pierced rectangle to create layers to add my image on top off.  I added a band of delicious lace and added the


over the top of this, before adding the frantage heart, the sentiment, the heart rhinestone sparkler, the charm and of course the selection of flowers from Clickit4Crafts and the Hobby House on this occasion.

here is the close up of the image coloured in copics and edged in distress inks


I would like to take a moment to say hello to all my new followers and thank all of my visitors for their wonderful comments, which allows me to hop over and visit you in return.
