Well hello again,
I thought I would share with you a very simple stylish card that can be made both in blue and pink.
The materials  I used where:
 jolee stickers efco 1191032
 and Peel Offs in

 and Frosted Edges ccxl177u

Is it just me or is this a lovely shade of pink?
 I found it in my craft paper stash. I personal love using this triple aperture card as it a fab way of using all your off cuts and small embellishments.


A snowy hello to you. We finally had snow in Bedfordshire today not much, but some.
    I wanted to share with you a card made with our in house range Words like Honey stamps.
This card was made using the:

Day 2 of 12 days of christmas

 Hello again,
         Well its here again the first of December! and we are moving in to day 2 of our 12 days of Christmas sale.
          Today we bring you Dreamweaver stencil's which can be used on a light box or sizzix/cuttle bug Die-cutting Machine with a rubber mat at from www.thecraftbug.co.uk/ plus there fab for all types dies including Tim holtz
For tonight card I've used:

 Bundled Sage distress ink

Code: PITIM27102

Wrought Iron Embossing Plate
Code: WWDWLG684
set of three brushes
A set of three brushes designed for applying colour after embossing

 I embossed my card with the dream Weaver template and light box, once the image was embossed I flip over the card and relined the template with the raised image .I used a dream weaver brush and applied the sage colour ink using the stencil as a mask.

  • Once the image is coloured crisply I moved on to the  back card stock and soften the white with a soft colour wash round the edges.Then taken a lager back round patterned stamp in inked it up in the same colour distress ink and stamped in on to opposite corners

  • I cut and mounted the embossed image on to gold mirror card stock and then added this to my stamp card stock.
