Thank You Card

Whoo Hooo my mojo is back, after having a very stressful time before Christmas, things have settled, and so my Mojo is back :-)
Here's a card I've made with just about my new favourite Stamp Set-Spiced Paisley (SU). I love the richness of Indian designs.

I've sponged in Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight then smooched with Gold. A couple of pearls and the card is ready.
I'm entering this at Gingersnap Creations Once in a Blue Moon Challenge- where they're asking for Thank You cards.

Venetian Mask

Our Holiday Challenge at Craft Room Challenge is Anything Goes! What fun :-)
Anyone who's been following my blog for a while will know that I have a mild obsession with Venice Lol.
I also love Christmas, because a traditional english Christmas just doesn't work here in the Southern Hemisphere, at least not for me and my family, I like to go with themes, this year I did a Venetian theme again (though different colours to last year), here is the mask I made for this years table.

I took a plain mask and using mod Podge used the napkins I'd bought for the table to cover the mask, I then added glitter in various forms and some bling, I love how it turned out.

I also made the crackers again this year using Venice stamps, I use my friend Delys Cram's tutorial for the crackers, it's the best one I've found.

Finally here are some more photos of my christmas table this year.

Wishing you all a peaceful and Joy filled 2012.

Fancy Egg Box

I needed a little gift for someone so I made a fancy Christmas egg box with our Free range eggs in it, combined with a handmade wool angel and card.
I used lots of different dies to create all the elements as well as the SU Stamp Set Word Play, which is one of my fav sets. I added some seam binding which I aged and it's all done.

I'm entering this over at Just Add Ink where the challenge this week is wrap or create a gift box :-)

Wishing you all Happy Holidays

dies and punches

There were so many pretty entries for the Handmade flowers Challenge at Craft Room Challenge. This week Nikki has asked us to use Die cuts and Punches. I've made this cute vintage box, using dies, and decorated it with more die cuts and some handmade flowers.
Don't forget to check out the other DT's pretty work.

Christmas tag

Here's my take on Tim's Tag Day 1, I did my own version of the background, I sponged, dry embossed with craft ink in the folder then clear wet embossed- I think it looks fab.

Adding to the Inspiration Emporium Challenge too.

For various reasons I haven't been doing much crafting and I so needed to do something, here's my take on Tim Holtz's Christmas Tag Day 3.
