Faux Patina

Hi everyone, just sharing a card I made using the Faux Patina technique.  I used Crumb Cake to ink up the Lovely Lace embossing folder before putting it through the Bigshot.  I then sponged on Blushing Bride and Chocolate Chip before adding the gold embossing powder.

Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peaks...

Hi everyone, I have been playing this afternoon with some of the products available in the new Holiday Catalogue from 1 September 2015. 

My first project is using the new Silver Corded Trim and the stamp set Cozy Christmas.  The DSP is from Merry Moments which is available in the Annual Catalogue.  I have used several packs of this DSP but found that I was left with several sheets of the same design.  So I set about designing a little Baker's Box for Christmas, using the DSP sheets that I have a collection of.    I have also used the Baker's Box Thinlits Dies, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Cardstock, Cherry Cobbler Thick Bakers Twine, Silver Foil Sheets and the Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

My second project is using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and Gold Corded Trim from the new Holiday Catalogue. The other items that I have used are all available in the Annual Catalogue - stamp sets Kinda Eclectic, Flower Shop, Petite Petals and Beautiful Bunch along with the coordinating punches Fun Flower, Petite Petals and Pansy, Pearls, Metallics Sequin Assortment and reinkers Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake. The centre panel is on Very Vanilla cardstock.

Christmas Tags

Just a sneak peak.  I have been playing with the new "Home for Christmas" DSP that is in the new Holiday Catalogue available in early September.

I made some Tags for Christmas cutting out the Santa images, Christmas Tree and pressies and the dears from the DSP.  So far I have worked out that I can get 108 tags and I still have heaps of left overs so the number of tags from the paper pack is probably going to be about 130.

A Little Dear for Christmas ....

Hi everyone, sharing my card I made for the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used the little dear image from the "Made With Love" stamp set.  I was making some Christmas cards for the WA Cancer Council Relay for Life fundraising at work and really liked the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  It was a nice clean sketch to follow and my card was very quick to put together.
