Had a Fun Crafty Weekend


The Flower Challenge- Use a Heart

The Male Room- Use a Heart

We Love Stamping- Romance

Inkspirational- Hearts

Little Red Wagon- Show Us Some Love

Simon Says- Fun with Foil

Tic, Tac, Toe Challenge- used Sparkle, Watercolor, Flowers #tttc241 

I created this card for my hubby and, I have to say, it looks pretty good:)). I took my cuddlebug and embossed the flower frame. I used my tombow markers to watercolour in the roses in a variety of blues. I used my dark blue ink pad and pressed that across the card and the colour adheres to the raised areas. I used glossy accents to create a shine on the roses. I stamped the sentiment and the heart in a sticky  embossing powder and used the blue foil for the 2 stamped pieces. Finally took double sided tape around the edges and placed the the 2 different blue foils on top. I glued everything in place and my hubby loved his card

52 Christmas Cards- Mushrooms

Sparkles Monthly- New Beginnings

I have not used my gnome stamps until now. I used my tombow markers and coloured in the gnome and the mushroom. I added glitter to the top of the mushroom, fussy cut it out and glued it to the white card stock. This cardstock was glued to the frame in red glitter. I stamped  the sentiment in green which must be 15 years old. Added the gold glitter border and the star crystals. 

Fab N' Funky- Paper Piecing

12 Months of Christmas- Die Cuts/Embossing 

Christmas Kickstart- Out On A Limb

This was fun to do! I enjoyed paper piecing the ornaments that I cut out using my sizzex machine from paper remnants I had on hand that was coloured up with colour bursts. I stamped the evergreen in green and glued the ornaments in place. I took red stickles and placed it  on top of the berries and glued it on top of a sparkly paper with border stickers and purple pearls in each corner.
