Butterfly birthday wishes

How are we all today? It’s very cold here in Norfolk I have been crafting this morning and now I’m watching the Newcastle Manchester City game, before we head out to the pub. 
It’s my Mam’s birthday coming up in December but I’m away to Newcastle tomorrow so she’ll be getting her card nice and early. That’s what I’m sharing today. 
I used the create-a-card subscription box to make this card. 
I added some die cut butterflies and a stamped sentiment from the Birthday stamp and verse stamp set, which I stamped in memento grape jelly ink. 
I hope she likes it?!

A Winter’s Tale

Afternoon Peeps!
How are we all today?  I am on the last day of my holidays – back to work tomorrow 🙁 I’ve had a lovely time off.  So today I am locking myself in my craft room to make my family Christmas cards (well to get a start on them) and to make 1 or 2 things for my Etsy store.
I decided to use my Peter Rabbit CD-ROM again along with my favorite Gemini Storybook dies.
I used centura pearl pastel lilac card with the glitter card from the blue luxury card pack.  I printed the plaid paper along with the Peter Rabbit decoupage image.  I decorated with ribbon, die-cut snowflakes and a foiled “Merry Christmas” sentiment, as its a Christmas card I added LOTS of jewels!
I made the display stand from the same lilac centura pearl card.
And I also made a gift box to send the card in – just to make it extra special!!
I just LOVE this image – its so cute!!
I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday – Winter
Creative Inspirations – Winter Blues.
Thanks for visiting me guys and fingers crossed work goes quickly tomorrow!!
See you all soon. x x x 

1st Christmas

How are we all today? I hope you’re all well. For me it’s holiday day today!!
 I am off to Boston, USA 🇺🇸 and I can’t wait! 
I have made a card using the Crafters’s Companion Peter Rabbit CD-ROM.
I just love this Winters Tale. 
I printed 2 patterned papers along with the decoupaged image. I layered this onto pale blue glitter card from the luxury card pack. I decorated with a snowflake border and ribbon and then embellished with LOTS of jewels. I added the sentiments “Sons first Christmas” and “Merry Christmas”.
I decorated the inside to match. 
But I left it blank for a special message to be written.
This card is for sale in my Etsy store HERE.
Have a fab day!
See you all soon!! X x x

Aran for dad!

How are we all today?  Sorry I have been missing in action. I have been preparing for a Christmas fair, doing dt work and I have been on holidays!!!
 But hopefully I am back to posting more frequently.

So the lovely Sara is over in the USA on HSN for craft day. One of the items one tonight is the shaped card bases. I used the best dressed set with paper from the detailed decorations pap with cream card from the neutrals textured pack. I embossed the card with the cable knit 3D embossing folder to make it look like an aran cardy!! 

I added a little stamped message into the pocket. 
How fab are these for those hard to make men’s cards? 
Enjoy your day, I am just off to work, after 2 weeks off wish me luck!! 
See you soon x x x 

Have a magical Christmas

How are we all today? I have been in my craft room I didn’t manage to get much done as I kept getting distracted – oops! 
I did make 1 card with the enchanted Christmas collection.
 I am sharing this card today. 
I made a 5×7” card blank from stamping card.  I layered this with silver mirror card. I then embossed white card with the sparkling snowfall embossing folder. I then covered this with spun sugar, picked raspberry, dusty concord, faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress inks. I then went over the card with my new favourite thing – Nuvo glacier paste. 
I stamped and added the die cut sentiment. I added 2 for the fairies which were diecut in the Matt black card. 
I decorated the inside of the card. And stamped  the Sparkle all the way sentiment. ✨
I think this is my favourite embossing folder 🥰
