Christmas In July

Morning... First Christmas card of the year made from a panel I actually coloured in last year but never managed to do anything with. 
I'm not normally this early but I'm still trying to empty the box of bits and pieces and this was in it so I thought I might as well make it into a card at least.


I created a panel using the poinsettia stamp from the retired Stampin Up Set Joyful Christmas. I stamped it multiple times and then coloured it in with distress oxides .  I added the sentiment from the set and then splatted the page with gold paint.
Its finished off with some gold german glass glitter and then mounted on a kraft card base.

That's all from me today

Season's Greetings

Hey Y'all, hope you have had a great week.  Only a couple more cards to share as inspiration for Mondays Hochanda release.  Again this is from Christmas Friends set and this was my favourite card! It's available HERE


I coloured the reindeer in with copic markers before carefully fussy cutting out the image leaving a small white border.
I cut out a panel with the pierced rectangle die from avery elle and then embossed this with the softy falling EF from Stampin U|p.  Its finished off with a sentiment on black card from a retired Stampin Up set.
I then added the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist card base.

That's all from me for today... hope you all have a lovely Friday!

Merry Christmas

Good Morning.... I have some more inspiration from this weeks Hochanda LOTV sets from Monday.  This has to be one of my favourite examples I made. It uses an image from the Christmas Friends set which you can find HERE


I coloured the image in with copics and added some glossy accents to the nose and baubles before mounting it behind a stitched circle aperture made from Neenah Desert storm card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted stamps onto black card stock and then heat embossed it with WOW ultra white embossing powder.
I added some glitter to the Santa and then placed the sentiment on foam tape over the circle.

I have a few more to share with you over the next couple of days then no more christmas cards for a while!

have a great Thursday

Winter Wishes

Morning.... I have another one of the Hochanda samples to share with you today... this is from the Festive Folk set and you can find it on the website HERE

I just love these cute owls and the Scandinavian styling. I went for purples and blues for my colour theme!


I coloured in the image on neenah card stock with copic markers and added a little glitter pen to the hearts and bobbles on the hats.  I trimmed down the panel so the branch was hanging over the edge before mounting it onto a card based made of Rich Razzleberry card stock from Stampin Up.
I added a sentiment from an old LOTV set onto a strip of the same coloured card with white embossing powder and finished it off with some sequin strip down the edge.

I have a few more example to show you this week so I will see you tomorrow....

Deck The Halls

Morning, so I hope you enjoyed yesterdays Hochanda shows... I have some more inspiration from the cards shared on the show yesterday....

This one is from Christmas Friends and it's currently still available to purchase from HERE


For this image I coloured it in with copic markers before using a pierced rectangle die from Avery Elle to edge the panel. I added lots of distress glitter to the star and some sparkle and white gel pen to the bauble.
I mounted the panel onto neenah dessert storm card stock before finishing it off with a simple sentiment from a retired Stampin Up set.

That's all from me for today.. I will have some more LOTV samples to share with you for the rest of the week as ideas of what to do with your stamps when they arrive...

Have a lovely Tuesday

Winter Wonderland - LOTV On Hochanda

Morning All,  Sorry I've taken a couple of weeks pretty much off, My laptop died and Ive had to get a new one and then transfer everything over to it so not had much time for crafting and even then couldn't get the photos off my camera!

Today LOTV are on Hochanda at 11am and 3pm BST and I am sharing one of the stamps you will be able to get hold of exclusively today! How cute is this....


The image is coloured in with Copic markers and I have cut it out with Avery Elle Pierced Square dies. The sentiment is an old LOTV set and it is then mounted onto Kraft card stock base.

I'll have some more to share with you this week.. the images are exclusive to Hochanda for 2 weeks then if any rubber are left you will be able to get them over on the LOTV website

Sorry it's a quick one today...
