Magical Christmas.....

Hello to all you lovely crafters! Well this is my first Christmas
Card for 2010. After seeing all the lovely creations over on Simon
Says Challenge
I just had to play along, Simon Says are you All
White! which means everything on your card has to be White
apart from your image which can be coloured! I have used this
beautiful little image by Leanne Ellis, it is a fundraiser stamp
and 100% of the profits go to Breast Cancer, it's available here
at Funky Kits. I have painted my image with water colours then
drew around the image on the front of the card and cut out an
aperture with my craft knife. I have set the image inside the
card but once the card is closed wanted it to look like she was
daydreaming out of the window, she is set onto a lovely doily
and I have used lots of stickles Star Dust to make her sparkle.

For the front of the card I have punched these fab branches
to look like a snowy wisteria growing up the front of the house
just outside the window and also punched these lovely snowflakes
from glitter card and added some crystal stones to the centre.
I have also added lots of Star Dust stickles to the branches but it
has not shown up that well!

Finally I have stamped and embossed the sentiment with
Colour Box MetaleXtra pigment ink and embossed with Stamp n
Stuff Kaleidoscope embossing powder then heat set.
Punched my little eyelet and added a LLB Tassel. I am also
entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge this week
which is W for Winter Wonderland. TFL. Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Imagine, Create, Inspire!

Hello to all you beautiful bloggers out there, I hope your day is
a happy creative one, I made this little tag today which is made
from some handmade paper, that I actually made!!! Whooo hoo
I went on a paper making course in the summer, only for a couple
of hours and produced a few sheets of beautiful paper from
tea bags, leaves and things you would never ever think of putting
into your paper! I then distressed it with an Antique Gold embossing
pad from Encore!
Little close up of that cherub!
I added some different scraps of paper and hessian fabric,
flowers, ribbon and embellishments, all from stash and
hey presto!
The sentiments have been created on the computer.

Hope you like it and it gives you some inspiration,
TFL,Happy Crafting, Sue xx
