Hi crafty Bloggers
Here is  my  first Christmas card this year  using LOTV holy light stamp ..It's been such a long time since I used a LOTV stamp and I enjoyed colouring her so you will see more in the future. I have coloured her mainly with Distress ink marker Chipped Sapphire . The card base is made from Papermill linen card and the matting is made from Tim Holtz coordination's . I just folded the card in a concertina underneath to make the texture to place the image on.

The beautiful die around the edge is from by super bloggy friend and is from Noor design.I distressed inked them , added a touch of brilliance gold ink and some white embossing powder. The beautiful papers used to cut the tag,wings and backing paper is Maja design from Live & Love crafts as with the shabby ribbon, Memo pin,gesso snowflake charm and pleated ribbon trim. I have frantaged around her and then inked over it again with chipped sapphire to make the background just love how it turned out. I finished the card with large pom pom trim form my local sewing shop,
The sentiment is also from LOTV and is embossed with fine white embossing powder stamped with versamark clear ink ,
I have decorated the inside with another tag in a little holder.

Unsunny sky Tilda ...Old letters with secret box !! Ssshh

Hi Crafty bloggers

I have made a project for some challenges I hope you like it !...I have used Unsunny Sky Tilda  and I got my inspiration from this super tutorial !...I have made a project which is just a pile of old letters but when you open it it's a box as has a compartment cool is that..and was great fun to make ! It involved using a craft knife but I could not find mine so I pinched my hubbies stanley knife ! SShhhh don't tell him

I have made a couple of postcards for the front using Magnolia stamps . I also cut some postcards details from designer papers by pion . The butterflies are wooden and are first painted with gesso and then coloured using distress inks with blending tool and lastly I added stardust stickles. The beautiful flowers are a mix from The Ribbon Girls & WOC from Live & Love Crafts ..I have inked and glittered them too. Tilda has been coloured with distress ink markers .
Here are all the letters stacked and you just pull the ribbon bow and voila..

I also have a panel inside with some Magnolia Jolly tags which I stamped and added ribbon
The letters are just envelopes stuffed with card and I coloured them, individually with distress ink pads and blending tool.
I had so much fun making this !! Hope your all having a lovely weekend it's a lovely sunny evening here too take Suzi for a walk sometimes the cat comes too lol

Had some fun making a criss cross card I think it has to be one of my favourite folds . I have chosen Bubble Tilda ...just like my bloggy friend we both just love her and I think she is timeless.

I have coloured her on the card inside  with distress ink markers. There is a mix of Pion & Maja design papers for the matting and for the die cuts used.
Here is the Magnolia Jolly tag. I have placed a beautiful frame from Live & Love Crafts with a gorgeous rose detail cut from the designer papers. The banner die from my bloggy friend has been topped with some flowersoft and I have sprinkled some sugar glitter on the bottom it actually sticks with versafine embossing ink and then heat is added with the heat gun to set !!

Here I have used the magnolia butterfly and peony dies with some mesh .some more glitter and some hobbyhouse brads .
Here is the card out of the envelope topped with a beautiful lilac ribbon bow and charm which I painted with some gesso and added some glitter and finished with a doily . The beautiful lace trim on the folds are from Live & Love crafts too !!
I have used a spellbinders die on the back for a sentiment to be written and all the panels have been painted around the how the details on the papers show.

I have used a Maya Road pocket from Live & Love Crafts .I  cut a Magnolia Jolly tag to fit in there...the pretty flowers and centers are from the Ribbon girl .

The butterfly die at the side is from Tim Holtz. I have put some gesso on the charm with a brush and finished with more flowers.
