LOTV Nativity

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I've been busy trying to get ahead with cards & DT cards as I want time to have a good sort out in my hobbit & in the bungalow.........a spruce before christmas ;0)

Okie doke I finally inked up this gorgeous stamp last week & have now made a card with it. I lurve these LOTV Christmas stamps............I've even just ordered a few more yesterday.........I only went to browse but the buggers jumped..........actually leaped into my basket...... Cheeky little things ;0)
I have actually made this card for The Ribbons Girl challenge which is their LOTV week. They want us to add 'Sparkle'...............oooohhhh me lurves sparkles.

I've added Tim Holtz snowflake edge & smothered it in Shabby White & 'Shabby Blue' Fran-Tage. The poinsettia I made with my new die from La La Land 'pretty Poinsettia', I inked the edges with Pumice Stone, sprayed it with Gold Glimmer mist, shaped it then added a Silver Metal Rose to the centre

The holly leaves are from my Marianne die & they also got inked with Pumice Stone & sprayed with Gold Glimmer mist.

The gorgeous bow I made with some ribbon from my stash. Its the same ribbon as I used on my card here the other day. However I couldnt remember where I got it from as I've had it for a bit. Well I have found some in The Ribbon Girl store........ Its 'Silky Crush Ribbon' & its sooooooo gorgeous!!!!
The silver star is from my stash.

Of course inside is decorated to compliment the front. All lace & bells are from my stash.

The gorgeous papers I've used are MME 'Mistletoe Magic' & I inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched them. The top corner snowflake I made with 3 Snowflake Corners from a MB die from MCH & a Joy Crafts Snowflake die cut in half then I added a 'White Carnation'

The LOTV image is 'Nativity Angels' & I coloured it with Distress Markers & added Shabby White fran-tage. I also added stickles to the star & stardust stickles to their wings. The 2 tag sentiments is also LOTV.

Tilda In The Mountains

Hello everyone how are you all? Well its certainly getting cold now isn't it? I'm even thinking the winter quilt may have to go on my bed soon. 

Anyway I'm here with a card with a Magnolia Stamp I got last year from The Christmas Story collection (my favourite ever collection) & only inked her up last week. Yes shame on me but in my defense....................ok I dont have a defense.....
Ok now the papers are both Magnolia but a bit mix n match, the bottom one is 'Sixpence' from a wedding collection I've had it forever, & the top one is from last year & called 'Angel Script'. I inked all the papers with Pumice Stone & machine stitched them. I also added White Gesso.

The snowflakes I made with my favourite snowflake die at the mo which is by Joycrafts. I fran-taged them both, one in Shabby White & the other in 'Shabby Blue'. The pearls I actually got free when I got my 'Storage Carousel' last year & tbh completely forgot about them.

The 3 flowers are from WOC & I rolled the other 2 with a Memory Box die & also frantaged them up & added pearls inside. 

The sentiment is 'Whimsy Holiday Notables 1' & used the Matching Die

The image is called 'Tilda In The Mountains' & I coloured her with Distress Ink markers. I added 'Stardust Stickles' to the bobble on her hat & I added drops of snow with a White Pearl Pen.

I have decorated inside to comepliment the front. I've used a Doily on the front from my stash but on the inside I've used a smaller doily from LLC. The laces are from my stash & the die on the side is Memory Box die from MCH.

Dont forget the current challenge over at Midweek Magnolia's which is Thanksgiving or just to say Thank You.

Well thats all from me, hubster is treating us all to chinese...........mmm my favourite, he's just gone to pick it up. Will be on my rounds later peeps.

Take care & thanks for stopping by mmwah
Squishy hugs to all.

Another CAS Card..........

Hello everyone I'm running rather late today been quite busy. I've also had my grandaughter this afternoon as Megan had to take Arjay the hospital. His hips are not doing too well so he has to have more scans, & he may need an operation so he will be able to walk, but we will see, fingers crossed.
However he does have the most gorgeous smile now & is even starting to chuckle, soooooooo darn cute!!

Anyhoo's enough of my rabbling, as you can see by my heading I have another CAS card to show you. Now this is the third Christening card I made weeks ago & had forgot I hadnt shown it to you yet, so thought I would pop it on now.
For a CAS card I was quite pleased with this when I did it. I used a darker tone pink for the backing under the white card. The top layer got embossed with a 'Baby Embossing Folder'.

The cross I layered up with silicone glue to add dimension. 

The gorgeous ribbon is from my stash, I think I may have gotten it from Ebay..........will have to get more, it really is beautiful ribbon. I added a Scalloped Pearl from WOC in the middle.

The cross I made with a Spellbinder die that hubster got me from our local craft store. Its called 'Shapeabilities Crosses 2'. The bottom layer I did with the pink cardstock to add a nice contrast colour. I added a 'Heart' pearl from WOC to the centre.

I machine stitched the white embossed card to the pink card after I fastened the ribbon on, so the stitching is all around the ribbon too. Its all then glued to the card base. No sentiment has been put on yet.

Well thats it from me, quick & easy lol, all the time I have right now. Will catch up later my lovelies.

Thank you for stopping by
hugs & more hugs mmwah

Til Mor..................

Hi everyone how are you all? I want to say before I start my post today that anyone & everyone affected by the awful typhoon in the Philippines my thoughts are with you. My hubster is at our local Asda at the moment & they are doing a 2 minute silence. The whole world are feeling their pain & everyones hearts go out to them. 

Anyhoo's I'm here today with a vintage card that I have to say I sooooooooo enjoyed making.
Now I think the heading of my post may have you wondering..........well those who only speak english moi lol.
I think 'Til Mor' means 'Mother' or 'For Mother'............(if I am wrong please correct me lol) the papers I have used are called this so the card made itself............well with me at its side for a few hours as well lol.
The gorgeous papers are Pion 'Dresses' from the 'Lil Mor - For Mother' collection, I've had these since last year & cant believe I haven't used them til now. I have edged them with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched them. The top layer I cut out using Spellbinder Grand die Label One.

The tags are also from the same sheet of paper. All the flowers are from WOC & I added white Gesso to them.

The cabochon I made using a free photo & printing it out small & added a plastic dome thing lol, cant remember what they are called as I did a load months ago & they are in one of my embellishment drawers.
The letters saying 'For You Mum' are from a Pion sheet 'Red Clover' & the resin oval is a Melissa Frances 'Vintage Frame'.

The lace is from my stash & I added 'Shabby Seam Binding'. I also added 'Pearl String' amongst the flowers.

The charm I got from LLC & I added a chain to it from my jewellery making stash & added a bit of Shabby White Fran-Tage.

The gorgeous image I got off the internet a long time ago & printed it out on thick Photo card. However I cant remember which site I got it from & I cant even find it on my laptop may of been on my old laptop & maybe missed transferring it. I will keep on looking though to find the link.

Everything has had a dash of gesso here & there & of course inside is decorated to compliment the front. The small cream flowers & the doilies on the front & inside are from LLC. The cream pearls are MF from MCH.

This card will be on my Etsy shop either later today or tomorrow. I've finally plucked up the courage to sell my cards on there. I will put the link in my sidebar when I have done it.

Thanks for stopping by, I have a poorly daughter with a bad cough & I'm also looking after my grandchildren this afternoon for a bit, but I will be round to see you all in between busy times. Last night my Ipad was a I'm catching up on my lappy.

Big hugs mmwah

Have Yourself A Merry CAS Christmas...........

Hello how are you all? I made some CAS Christmas cards quite a few weeks ago & forgot to put them on here. Now as you know I'm not a CAS kinda, no, no,,,,this chick needs her foofiness I tell ya ;0) However I need to make flatter cards that I can put in an envelope instead of a box..........postage is getting too expensive.
Okay so here are the CAS cards I made...........
.......I made 3, the 2 at the back are slightly larger, tbh I cant remember what sizes they are.

My first one I made out of dark blue cardstock & used Memento 'Nautical Blue' ink for the 'Creative Expressions Ornate Bauble' stamp & LOTV Sentiment. I cut the bauble out using Spellbinder 'heirloom Ornament 2010' die & also stamped 'Noel' inside from the same LOTV sentiment.

This second one is in gold tones & the gold card I had didn't match what I had stamped the 'Creative Expressions Xmas Scene' in. So I heat embossed the edge of the card in the same embossing powder as the stamped image. 
I used Gold Tinsel embossing powder & the inside oval I stamped twice & cut the second one out & layered it up with silicone glue. 

I used the same Bauble stamp again but this time did it in more of a Taupe colour.......I had card to match this colour well lol. The ribbon is from my stash. I used the gorgeous 'Tied Together' embossing folder which was extremely popular last year, I also added really small 'Mei-Flower Gems', I think it adds a nice touch.

I heat embossed this stamp with 'Aged Taupe' fran-tage & again stamped the inside twice & layered it up. This bauble stamp goes with Spellbinder 'Heirloom Ornament 2011' die. I haven't added a sentiment to this one yet.

Well thats another 3.........oh & also the last card I posted before this to add to my collection. My aim is to fill this basket with flatter style cards. I have to say though I enjoyed making these & it makes me use my embossing folders more............I'm very guilty of neglecting them all :0(

I did mean to post this earlier but I've been watching my favourite christmas film with hubster & Natalie.........Miracle On 34th Street, I lurve that film.

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means a lot. I will be catching up with you all later. I'm quite a bit behind on visiting as I keep getting headaches & dizzy heads..............yep def going for that eye test this week :0( So its short bursts on the lappy for me. I am gonna use the Ipad to do it later but will be shorter messages for now so I can get to you all. 

Squishy hugs to all mmwah
