More Snowy Seranade....

Hi there

Well me and Vicki had a great time at the NEC last Friday and amongst other items I aquired these two beautiful Magnolia stamps. I have to admit that the card I have just finished has to be one of my most favourites ever...I just love the colours, the image and the softness of the overall effect, I know it might seem I am blowing my own trumpet but I really do love it !

Once again I have used the Snowy Seranade range from Craft Obsessions. The snowflakes have been made with the Snowflakes 2 set of Nestabilities and also the McGill Snowflake punch.  The best part of this card is the beautiful Tilda image, I have masked her and sat her in the Snowy Circle Stamp. 

Around the edge of the circle I have blinged it up by using Swarovski Crystals, Stickles, Glitter and small glitter stickers. I habe coloured her in using my Prismacolour Pencils which as of Wednesday 18th November wil be put into storage as I have finally managed to get the full 144 Copics which will be here on Wednesday  ( Secretly so excited I can't explain !)

Snowy Seranade Christmas....

Hi There

This stamp is available from Funky Kits and is called beautiful and dainty is she.  I have used the new paper range from Bo Bunny called Snowy Seranade and is available as always from Craft Obsessions.

 I have quartered the die cut sheet and then cut out the inner part and mounted it on the purple card. the same was done with the outer part and then the inner part was mounted on foam and placed so you can't see the join !

For the snowflakes I used my new McGill punch which I love. I blobbed on some glossy accents on the ends and then sprinkled with glitter..I just happened to have the same type of glitter as the paper - result ! Swarovski crystals finish the centres.

I have foam mounted the stamped image which I have coloured with my Prisma Colour Pencils, I have put some glossy accents on her dress, the flowers and the hair decoration is made by punching the pine branch and taking the very ends and tucking them under a crystal.

Thanks for looking

Our Special Boy's Birthday...

We can hardly believe that our son Connor is going to be 9 on Thursday 5th day we can never forget !!

I made him a fairly simple card using the Basic Grey papers from the Marrakesh range.  I have also used the Anya stamp - Ian. 

 I think it's a really cool image and for those of you that know Connor..will know it's him all over.

and a close up of Ian/Connor

Until my full set of copic ciao's arrive towards the end of November( all 144 -Yippee I can't wait ) I will have to be content with using my Prisma Pencils ( which I also love)

Thanks for looking
