Faux Somethings!

It's Friday which means it's time for the next Stamp Something challenge. This week it's Faux Somethings which can only mean one thing for me......stitching! !




I've used this Tilda with her broom.....I bought her a little while ago and thought it was about time I inked her up. I've coloured her with Prismas and Sansodor and drawn around the edge then mounted her onto Bazzill c.s. The card base has been layered with Bazzill c.s. and Karen Foster DP (which has faux stitching on!) and I've run the lime green piece of card through the Cuttlebug with the Swirls embossing folder. I then added Doodlebug faux stitches rub ons around the edges of each layer. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp, which I won on the CCT challenge site and the flowers are Prima Sprites with a small brad from my stash. Finally, three tiny sticky gems from Papermania were added to the top left-hand corner. Don't laugh at me but this Tilda reminded me of Cinderella cleaning up before her transformation! hence the reason for the sentiment I used!! Now you know I've totally lost it!!!!


Pop on over and take a look at the challenge because there are some gorgeous SU stamps on offer as a prize, and talking of blog candy, I will be posting details of mine this weekend as I have now received the various bits and pieces in the post for the prize. Just got to photograph them and I'm ready to go!

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
