A Note From Santa.

Good evening all...

Hope everyone had a good weekend and Monday was bearable... I really am not a Monday person , the day I like is Thursday , Thursday is an underrated day I think... it is a nearly there day that is unless it is your Saturday to work, which it just happens to be mine this week errrkkkk... Anywho .
Another Christmas in the Craftwork Inn and A note from Santa was my inspiration...

That and I love this ribbon I found at a local market stall, It has lots of flecks of gold sparkle in the fabric and the ends are wired just enough to mould it into prettiness.

Here is a close up of my lovely sparkly swirls and flowers made with the gorgeous sparkly
Craftwork cards papers , you can just see the embossed back ground , I ran the paper through my m-bossibility folder and ran an ink pad really lightly over it in gold.
then matted my sparkly paper over an added my flowers again made from the flowers in the paper pad.
A spotty Happy Christmas inside with accents in Candi completes my little 6x6 card, part of my project for Craftwork Christmas 2012.
Has everyone started making their cards yet? or are you last minute crafters?

Have a great Monday evening everyone.

Christmas Craftwork Style..

Good evening Bloggers,
Haven't been on for about a week, so I'm sorry to have neglected Blogland! I have had a horrendously busy week but wanted to share a card I mad for Craftwork cards using their gorgeous Christmas stock.
The lovely and amazingly talented Julie asked if I would do a few Christmas cards for them and sent me some lovely stock to design with and this is one of the ones created so far.
What do you think?

  • I started with the musical notes background made by Just Rite stamps which I love right now.
  • I matted it onto the beautiful glittered paper from Craftwork Cards... sparkly goodness which isn't showing in the picture but it has this green glitter all over which lights up soon as the light catches it.
  • I matted that on to black then onto milk card and added some more sparkly paper just at the sides which was matted onto a piece of red card. All of this is then added to another black mat to my Kraft card base.
  • Cutting out one of the card wraps and attaching to the top right came next. A bow to the top left with a dazzler in the centre, no naked bows here... 
  • I  added two wraps of mink colour ribbon top left and bottom right also before cutting out some swirls in the green glitter card and also the chevron sparkle paper. I added the chevron swirls on the left with a made flower in centre and the green ones you can just see under the flowers on the card.
  • I had already made up lots of ther flowers from the Craftwork Card Christmas pad and used several that matched on the bottom left.
  • Next, I stamped "ho ho ho" with the print font also Craftwork onto red paper, then matted onto black, covered in glossy accent so lots of shiny goodness.
  • Lastly, I inked my sentiment and added it. Also, I added lots of card candi and liquid pearl drops, plus a piece of skinny sparkly green ribbon up the spine of card, and added some extra pieces tied off and snipped to look like tinsel.
Well there you go, I hope you all enjoy this card as I really love how it has turned out.
Sorry again for disappearing for a while, more tomorrow from me!
