Hanglar Mother's Day Card

I made this card today with some of the crafting goodies I recieved for christmas (Believe me I got lots). The image is by Hanglar and was sent to me by my wonderful friend Nikki (Thanks Hun).
I coloured the image using copic markers. The papers are from the Basic Grey 'Stella Ruby' collection. I used Bazzill cardstock for matting and layering and sewed around the outer edges with my sewing machine. The flowers are Prima Hydrangea's and I added some stickle glitter to the outer edges for a bit of bling. The small button is by Doodlebug. The sentiment is by Woodware and is matted onto a scallop and circle that were cut from a punch. I added some holes to the scallop using a Japanese screw punch.
Hope you all had a great Christmas.

Christmas Clock

I decided to make another Christmas clock today (my last one got damaged). I used 2 large chipboard snowflakes which are sandwiched together. The chipboard numbers are painted with an Adirondack Acrylic Dabberin gold and then I applied some Anita's 3-D clear gloss. The papers are from the 'Plum Pudding' Collection. The snowflakes were already pre-cut. I used a small bauble attatched to the minute hand. All materials were purchased from Craftwork Cards.
Now going to do some last minute Christmas shopping (think ive gone mad).
Hope your having a good day.

Yet another Magnolia Xmas Card.

Well what a tiring weekend (it must be my age, ha ha!) I spent the whole weekend at Bridlington with my family enjoying my birthday celebrations. There were 13 of us all together and it was fantastic.I wont be posting after tomorrow until Saturday as im going to Dublin with some of the girls on my University course for my birthday.
This is a card made using a Magnolia stamp. The image is coloured using copic markers, i added some Sakura clear stardust pen to her wings. The papers are Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding' and i used some Bazzill Basics cardstock for matting and layering the image. The snowflakes are Sizzix and i cut them using my cuttlebug machine and added a pearlescent brad to the centre. The seal sentiment is from Catslife Press. I added some Papermania gems for extra bling.

A big thankyou to everyone who has entered my blog candy so far, i have enjoyed reading the comments you have left for me.

Cosy Hanglar Christmas

Hope your all having a good weekend. I have made this card for my Mother and Father in-law for christmas. I used an Hanglar and Stanglar image sent to me by my wonderful friend Nikki (thanks hun). I coloured the image using my new copic markers. I added some Deco- Art glamour dust to the white bits on the hat. The papers are from the Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding ' Collection. The flourish was cut on my cuttlebug using a Sizzix die. The flower is from a Prima bauble and I added a plain red brad to the centre.
Have a lovely evening.

Standing Fall Tilda and Magenta

Brrrr it's cold and snowy here in Leeds this morning. I have the children off school as it is closed due to the bad weather. They are ecstatic and im grumpy! Anyway after fighting them off the laptop I can finally post my card.
This is still one of my favourite stamps at the moment. She is 'Standing Fall Tilda'. I have coloured her using my Copic Markers. The papers are from the 'Magenta Pleasures Collection'. I have matted and layered using Core-dinations cardstock. The flowers are by Prima and I used a Papermania decorative brad for the centre. I have added no sentiment as it will be added to my stash of sentiment later cards.
Hope the weather is not too bad where you are.
