Hope you all have had a lovely weekend, as for me I am full of cold so no more 
 I  wanted to do something different from the norm for me, so I had another go at the heat resistant technique I think you call it, in the past I have not had much success with this technique. The poinsettia stamp is from Penny black Wonder Collection that I stamped with a Versa Mark ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I rubbed  it all over with love letter memento ink pad, I added a bit of yellow to the middles of the poinsettias, then I thought I would paint over it all With distress crackle paint, I don’t think it worked as I can not see much crackle lol, I have had the bottle of crackle for some time so it might be no good, but it has left a lovely all over  finish to my card. I cut two oval shapes from Tonic, one in mirror gold card and one from a bit I had left over from my background and stamped it with Merry Christmas also from Penny black.

After the .

 The other day I was having a look through my christmas stamps and came across this old frame stamp from Rubbadubbadoo, it was one of my first christmas stamps i bought when I first started to make cards back in 2003, I had a shock when I saw the date on the stamp, where has time gone. The snowmen stamp is from Little Claire’s which I coloured with promarkers, and added some glitter to the inside of the frame, , also used is fallen snow embossing folder and spellbinders marvelous squares.

 Morning all, well it’s good to be home for a while, but I can not say the same for the weather, I was playing with my new dies from Sizzix yesterday and eventually made this card , the hill die is from Lawn Fawn, and the stitch edge  square die is from the works, but because of the weather being so dark I had to wait to get a photo of it, the light hasn’t been to good but it’s the best out of a few I took. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Art.

What a Friend

Good morning , hope you all have had a lovely weekend.  After doing some ironing and packing yesterday ready for home, I sat and stamped this adorable image from Penny Black called LOVE in SPRING, I know it’s nearly winter you might say, but I am very lucky because where i am the sun is shining and the days are still very warm.  I stamped my image onto a square stitched edge die, coloured it with promarkers, mounted it on to majestic squares from spellbinders, the white embossed background is a frame that came in a packet with some others, WHAT a FRIEND  Sentiment stamp is also from Penny Black, lace, pearls, sequins, and spotted paper are from my craft box.
