Have yourself a merry little christmas

Hello creative peeps

Todays share is a double whammy :o) because i used the same papermania home for christmas paper i thought i'd put 'em together.

So first up the card
It's a 8x8 card with an aperture in the front framed with kraft card.

Here i have used an oldie magnolia stamp she is called cross stitch Tilda
as she matches the paper with the cross stitch heart on her dress, she has been coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils.

The flowers are from wild orchid crafts and i made some rolled roses and covered them in platinum glitter.

Next i've decorated the envelope.

This time i've used Tilda with hellebores,
she has also been coloured with promarkers and prisma pencils.

For decoration i made a small shaker tag from the papermania home for christmas tags and a Craftwork cards small silver frame and added a sentiment and gems.
The flower is Tim Holtz poinsettia die cut from kraft card and platinum glitter.


Merry Christmas
U  for Up to you

Bye for now

Pom Pom Flower Tutorial

Hi Creative peeps

Today my flower tutorial has gone live over on Craftwork cards blog so i thought i would put on here aswell just in case you dont follow it, but you should lots of great ideas on there from my fellow DT'ers :o)

Anyway onto the fun bit the tutorial on how to make my little pom pom flowers. And the good news is there sooo easy to make. Enjoy!

What you will need:

What to do:

Punch out 6 circles and fold into quarters

Unfold and put embossing tool in the centre of the circle

Wrap the paper around the embossing tool

 Unfold 1 circle and flatten (this is the base)
Partly unfold the other 5 circles

Glue 4 pieces to the base and 1 at the top
Add distress ink and/or glitter to make them stand out on your projects.

Finished samples

Here I've used the frame to make a mini shaker card embellishment with one of the tiny pictures from Memory Lane Project of the Month Kit or buy extra sheets Here.
All the little flowers come in the kit along with some beautiful adhesive pearls that finish your project perfectly. Card blank is called Fanciful card.

Here I've made another shaker card from the stunning silver oval frame with added silver accents and flowers brushed with silver glitter.
Card blank can be cut to size from Straight edge 203mm x 203mm card.

The frame on this card has been used as a mirror on a dressing table (cut on a eclips machine)
The chandelier in the background is the Bohemian 8x8 free spirit paper for the Project of the Month Kit.
Card blank used is a Scallop edge 203mmx 203mm card.

So there we go guys a tutorial and a few cards for you, hope you like them and give them a try,
keep your comments and suggestions coming we love to hear from you.
