Wishing you a Happy Christmas


Happy Christmas to all my friends in blogland. Today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing a Vintage styled Festive card using one of their beautiful Cardmaker Dies. I do love the intricate lace look to these dies and how they make a quick and very effective background to a card.


Once I cut mine out I tattered the edges for a shabby feel and pressed the edges into my embossing ink pad and heat embossed some Red Tinsel powder. Layering onto my other cardstock layers and adding some Glass Glitter to the edges for sparkle.


My Snowflake Doily was also heat embossed with Red Tinsel and cut in half and layered behind my Sentiment tag which had also been tattered at the edges, mounting on Noel.


My Poinsettia was cut in cream cardstock inking at the edges, adding micro beads to the centre finishing with a little Liquid Snow and Glass Glitter, mounting onto my glittered Holly Leaves.

Merry Christmas Shaker Gift Bag


Hi everyone, today for ny DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing some Christmas inspiration using their wonderful Shaker Dies on a gift bag measuring 8" x 10" approx excluding the handles, which I have decorated. So let me take you through the techniques on my die cuts.


I used the Lattice Valance Border at the sides of my bag gluing onto a red strip of card and then mounting onto my cream cardstock, finishing with a border of Red Stickles.



I started my centrepiece by cutting my large Snowflake in half and accenting behind my stacker layer. My Shaker Bells were heat Embossed with an Antique Copper, rubbing a little black Archival ink at the edges to age them. I filled one with Shaker Confetti listed below, small beads and Micro beads, mounting the other to the side as an accent of bells ringing.


My Poinsettia's were cut out in cream cardstock inking at the edges and adding a mix of Micro beads to the centres. My Robin was shaded with Distress ink and black Liquid Pearls added for his eye.


I added a lot of foliage onto my design and finished off with some Liquid Snow and Glass Glitter for a frosty look that glistens so lovely when it catches the light.

My Merry Christmas was heat embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder for more sparkle. Finishing my bag off with a pretty bow and an accent of lace.

You're Special to Me


Hi everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing a card made using the beautiful vintage floral 12x12 pad called Wild Rose.


I tattered the layers of paper for a vintage feel layering onto my card. My lace was shaded with Distress Stain to coordinate with the soft pink in the paper for added detail.


I stamped my sentiment adding onto my crackled frame with an accent of an elegant butterfly fussy cut from the Gypsy Gypsy paper pad.


I love the effect of pollen being blown onto my die cut leaves and flowers when cut out of the patterned paper from the Wild Rose Paper pad.

Lollipop Card for Maja Design



Hi fellow bloggers, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by at this busy time of the year. Today I am so delighted and honoured to be sharing my lollipop card here and on Maja Design's Blog. Please don't wake me up from this amazing dream !

I have made this card for a very dear craft friend of mine and hope to get a box made shortly to keep it safe.

I started my card by using 12x12 cardstock from A Gift for You collection called - Made By Me, then die cut out Cheery Lynn's DL103 Italian Flourish Doily four times and folded in a concertina fashion to form the base of my card. I also used this paper to add onto my straw, tattering it at the edges and adding on at an angle, finishing with some Stickles Glitter Glue.


I added some Frantage onto my images for a snowy effect and fussy cut the sweet little girl, she is holding 3D snowballs which are made from small fluffy balls I cut down and added a little liquid snow and glass glitter too for added sparkle.



My dies cuts have all been cut from the 6x6 I Wish Collection, every sheet of paper in this pad has been beautiful designed with lots of love and attention to detail. I added highlights of snow and sparkle to my Poinsettia's and Foilage.


The reverse of my card has a stamped sentiment on it, adding more sparkle and snow.


I finished my card with a tattered lace ribbon and cute little mittens which were die cut from felt.

Thanks so much to Maja Design for this amazing opportunity of having my Lollipop Card showcased on their blog, I will treasure this memory for years to come.

Thanks also for all the continued comments on my posts, I really appreciate them and especially at this busy time of year

Festive Hugs,

Lady Steampunk


Hi everyone, I do hope you are having a lovely weekend preparing for the forthcoming Festivities. Today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I thought it would be nice to share a card using the fantastic Steampunk dies that Cheery Lynn make.  I love the versatility of these dies and have fun making them look grungy, masculine or giving them a feminine shabby look. So let me take you through the details on my card.


My Steampunk corners, cogs and butterfly wings were all heat embossed with Frantage powders, tucking accents of cogs behind my paper layers with touches of lace and cheesecloth.


My corset was mounted onto patterned paper and trimmed around the edges. I repeated this process cutting out the bust area only and glued in place on top of the corset with silicone glue to add dimension. The belt was made using the Hinges die adding a little thread. I finished my corset with lace edges and some bling then mounted onto my Butterfly.


My roses and leaves were cut in coordinating paper to compliment the roses on my paper.
