A Winters Wedding.....

I have had the most fun the past few weeks!! Designing a range of Winter inspired Wedding Stationery! I hope next year ( mmmm I'm sure i said that THIS year!) to get my website up and running and do the WHOLE Wedding Stationery a bit more serious lol but until that time I'm still playing with collections i would like to add.. and here is my first, I would love to know what you think. 

I am so happy how they turned out!
I may try a few now in white and silver :)!
Thanks for stopping by!! it really is very much appreciated !
Right....back to crafting,

Bebunni Christmas Stamp !

Good evening crafters!! I have just got into my craft room for the evening after an....EVENTFUL day at work :) sigh...and relax
a nice couple of hours crafting ahead of me, but first a recent DT card for Crafters Companion. Did you see the fabulous new Bebunni Christmas stamps that launched last week!! How totally irresistible! here is the ever cute Bebunni and snowman stamp, coloured of course with my Spectrum Noir pens!


 I have printed the background paper from the new Bebunni Christmas CD that you can pick up just over...HERE! and crafters I promise it is FULL of the most fabulously beautiful art work for all your Christmas projects!
i have used a tonic verso holly Christmas die set to stamp and decorate my image, and the tags are a Die'sire die tag set, that are just PERFECT for adding your sentiments they have them in stock right now just pop along  HERE!! I used the stamp sentiment that came with the stamp and it fitted my tag die just right!, a satin bow a few jems and a good old sprinkling of glitter to finish off!
i think this image would make a fab shaker card with some white flowersoft maybe for the snow? mmmmm think i need to try that!, well I'm off to finish some winter wedding invites I'll pop back soon to show you ! :)

Just Inklined- CHEERS!

Good morning crafters!!
Today i am sharing my weekly DT card for Just Inklined.  Today I have chosen to use the digi image- "Cheers" Chalkboard for my quick and simple CAS style card that you can pick up in store just HERE!
i have loved this image for a while but this is the first time i have used it, i have printed and coloured in using my spectrum noir pens, then cut out and attached 3D foam pads. For my base i have used white hammered effect card from Papermill, then using "The Best Of Just Inklined" cd rom i have chosen 2 lovely backing papers in red and blue to create two little bunting flags and a little border. Attached my chalkboard and done! a lovely little card. 
Ctafty hugs!

 here is a lovely card made using the Shaped Cards section of the CD rom! how cute! I LOVE these snow globe designs. I've used spray and shine pearl diamond on globe shaped part and then around the edge and a few extra sprinklings of Stampendous Frantage silver crushed glass glitter around the edge. If you havent tried this crushed glass yet it is gorgeous!! Crafters Companion have it on their website just HERE!
they have a gorgeous range of colours and the price at just £4.99 is really good! I paid £6.99 for the same size pot from the NEC last november!! BARGAIN!

La Pashe- Some for the men folk!

Good afternoon peeps!,
Just stopping by to share 3 cards I have recently made for fathers day using my La Pashe CD roms- Check out the range on line just HERE!
They have a REALLY good selection of CD roms.... I know.... I have them ALL and LOVE them, I have always admired their artwork so find my self VERY  lucky to be on their Design Team!,
So I have made 3 cards using images from "The Best Of La Pashe 2012"

I really loved this one!! My Husbands hobby is photography and I have recently treated me to a lovely Nikon D3200 that I am still learning lol at the moment I have only taken snaps of my cards and a few pics in the garden but I'm getting better!  i popped the main image into my graphic programme to create the back ground I simply enlarged the image then faded, for the sentiment I made the image smaller, then again faded it and  wrote my sentiment over the top, really easy to do but i think it looks good! i do it all the have probably noticed if you've stopped by before! the following two cards of a steam train and boat, I have done the exact same thing....what do you think?...

and last one the boat...

and there you go! I have printed all 3 cards onto Black Diamond Matt photo paper, to get the clearest images i can, and cant stress enough when you are a CD crafter how important paper choice is, if you are not happy with the images you are getting always check your paper quality first! it rarely is your printer,
today is turning out to be a " catch up on blogging day!"
so I'm sure i will be back again soon!!
