Santa


Hi everyone, I am back again with a Christnas card this time.
My background is from a Kaizercraft 12x12 pad, I distressed the edges and adhered to a plain cream card base. 
The Santa is from a Tim Holtz set, which I stamped with Adirondack 'espresso', then cut out with a stitched circle die. I cut the edge of the holly and leaf and slipped the circle behind. The bauble diecut was given to me, so I am not sure who makes it. I rubbed it with some Treasure Gold 'spanish topaz' before adhering it

Glitter!


Hi Everyone.
Today's card uses a piece of card that I was using up some paint on. The grandchildren were a bit too enthusiastic with their craft projects, so I picked up the extra onto an a5 card I had handy, rather than waste it!
I trimmed it down and layered onto my base card, then stamped my fairy from a Craft Sensations set with Memento tuxedo black. I used Kindyglitz on the wings, added some washi tape, a nrrow strip of purple glitter card and 3 clear gems.

White!


Hi Everyone, sorry I have been missing for a while, but flew down to Christchurch to attend to some family matters. Unfortunately, I had a dizzy spell when I got up to go to the bathroom, and landed on the suitcase, so I am rather battered and bruised!!

My project that I have been working on for some time, and finally finished, started as  an ugly brown tray that I rescued from my work.

I sanded it down, applied 2 coats of gesso, and then used my homemade chalk paint for the final coat. The design is from the Graphic Fairy, and is my second attempt at image transfer. I am really pleased with the result, and would like to enter at Paper Artsy for the current challenge 'white'

Mauve and pearly


Hi everyone

I am just sneaking in at the last minute with my entry at Paper Artsy.
I made this card for a co-worker who's husband passed away.
I coloured the beautiful image from 'Flourishes' with pearlescent paints, added the sentiment, sponged the edges and layered onto a violet card Base

Autumn leaves


Hi fellow crafters
Todays card started with a piece of watercolour card that I coloured with Brusho's and Infusions.
I then applied the peel-offs and fussy cut around them, also added the word from the same peel-off sheet. The card was then trimmed and added to a cream pearlescent card base

Sparkly Christmas


Hi, I am back again today with a last minute entry at Paper Artsy.
They are asking for glitter which I have added to this card made from free papers from a magazine. There is glitter on the wee snowflake corner domes, and I also used Wink of Stella around the image, although it doesn't show up much in the photo
