Snowflakes & Icicles

Yay, I have finally finished the last of my xmas cards and wanted to share with you some I have made using Lavinia Stamps.

I have had the lovely icicle stamp since I visited Ally Pally in April and have been dying to use it on a project, so Christmas cards were the perfect opportunity.

I stamped the Icicles and snowflakes with Tim Holtz Distress ink in 'Tumbled Glass' and also Adirondack ink in 'Stream'.

The sentiments are both from Inkylicious stamped with Black Versafine ink.

The images were then layered on blue card stock from the Paper Mill.

Finished with some blue Stickles and a hand tied bow.

Tiddly Xmas

Ha Ha my blog title doe not mean the alcohol kind of Tiddly, but the fab Tiddly Inks of course.

Their challenge this week is to create a Christmas or Winter Scene, so with this in mind I merged the lovely 'Santas helpers' with some of the Christmas elements from Make it Crafty.

She is coloured with Promarkers and the background was done with Ink dusters, Tom Holtz distress inks and a homemade mask.

The snowflakes are a mix of Lavinia and Inkylicious stamps.  I added some stickles to the snow for a little sparkle and a die cut poinsettia.

I also made a second card with slightly different colours.

Thanks for stopping by.

Crafty Cardmakers #106 - Winter Fun

Welcome to our latest challenge, hosted by Marie who has chosen the theme 'Winter Fun'

Marie would like you to create something that portrays winter fun, but is neither Christmas nor New Year Related. In other words no Christmas cards/projects or New Year cards/projects, but some form of fun you might have during the Winter, skiing, skating, sledding for example.

I have used am image by one of this weeks sponsors The Paper Shelter for my card today called 'Fantasy on Ice'.

I merged her with a Silhouette tree I purchased from Etsy a while ago and haven't got round to using until now and a sentiment from Tiddly Inks.

She is coloured with Copics and flex markers with a little glossy accents underneath her feet to look like ice - I think you can just about see it!!

To finish I layered with LOTV papers and some pearlescent card, added a bow and some gems for sparkle.

Forever Friends

Today I want to share a project that I have been working on for a couple of weeks.

I didn't know what to get my Friend for her 40th, so decided to make her a little collage, I really hope she likes it, as I am so pleased with the way it turned out.

The main image is called 'Funny Face' from Redonkadoodles and she is coloured with a mix of Copics and pro markers.

The smaller image is a stamp by LOTV and called 'Forever Friends', I used mostly flex markers for this one and added some sky and grass with ink dusters and Adirondack Ink.

The Top sentiment is freebie from the fab Gingers House - she always has such great sentiments :)

The bottom sentiment is another freebie from another great free site A Piece of Heart

Finally I used my Ink Dusters, Adirondack inks and Lavinia Fairies, the sentiment here is a stamp by Inkylicious and little bit of stickles for sparkle.

I finished off by adding some tiny roses, pearls, gems a glittery Marianne Butterfly and a hand tied bow.

Thanks for looking
