Sparkly tree ...


... this sparkly tree was too good to discard - a friend received a card with it on and passed it on to me. It didn't need me to do much to it other than put some silver glittered strips down the sides, mounted on to a black card blank and I added the 'with love' circle because there was a bit of a smudge mark on the card!

Fun on the ice


This is a quick card made with an offcut of background paper (My craft studio) and a picture cut from a card received which was then matted on to a snippet piece of gold mirror card and then a piece of deep brown card that was recycled from a frame for a wedding photo. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't look too good hear - it's been printed on a textured card.

Fantasy revisited


Before Christmas I made some stamped shaped cards for a group of crafting friends - in the end I had one spare that I'd made a mess of inside, so I decided to cut and mount it on to a card blank of purple majestic card. The stamped tree is Penny Black fantasy inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold powder.


This is for:

A card a day facebook
That craft place: Christmas
Addicted to CAS 4: let's get embossed
Crafting when we can 35: favourite things - one of my favourite Penny Black stamps - and I love stamping and embossing
Stamps & fun = creativity 134: favourite stamps (difficult to have one favourite stamp, but this is definite one of my top favourites)

Two from one


Earlier today I decided I needed to tidy my craft stuff and on the work surface I had some Christmas cards that we'd received and quite a few offcuts and bits and pieces - it seemed silly to put them away, so I've had a session making a few cards - you can't really call it crafting, it's more like 'stick the bits together', but it's a few more cards done. Mind you, my craft space is just as cluttered as when I started because I've added to the mess!

These two cards were made from one recycled one cut in two pieces and mounted on to blue card blanks, adding some silver glittered strips and peel off sentiments:
