Silent Snowflakes



Happy New Year crafters! There's a new challenge starting today over at Poppystamps and it's called Silent Snowflakes. A very appropriate theme for where I live. We've had lots of snow already and I know there's going to be a lot more before spring.



For my card I took the Ava Snowflakes and die cut a bunch from water colour paper and adhered them to a water colour panel. I misted the panel and sprinkled on a few Color Burst and Brusho powders, spritzed with water again and just let the swirling magic begin.



I took the Marais Snowflake (which has beautiful stitched details) and die cut it from silver glitter paper and from vellum. I offset the snowflakes and layered the two pieces and used a couple of mirror snowflake embellishments to finish it off.



Now it's your turn to join the challenge and create a project. The challenge runs all month long and there's always a great prize for a random winner. For all the details  and to see the projects created by the other designers stop by the blog here. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Happy crafting!

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge

I'm back with probably my last tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. There's just not enough time to make all the tags that I would like!



For this tag I was inspired by the sketch on day 7 and Melania's use of gold.

I created stripes with two different shades of green using water colour paint. Using one of my fave wreath stamps from Wplus9 I added gold berries with Delicata ink and accents with gold glitter glue.



For the sentiment I used my Dymo label maker and I wanted just a pop of red so I added a cardinal to the wreath.

Hope you have a crafty weekend!

12 Tags of Christmas With A Feminine Twist 2016

I managed to make another tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist and this tag was inspired by day 4 and Jennifer's tag with the stitched background and using felt.


I used stitching dies from MFT on my tag and I die cut the Poppystamps stitched poinsettia layers from hot pink felt.


I added a mess of silver thread behind the flower and white heat embossed the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge

I have another tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. This time I was inspired by Joni's tag on day 3 and her use of a scalloped oval frame on her tag and by the shape of Carissa's banner tail tag as well as the foil theme.


I used a bookmark die for my tag shape and stamped snowflakes and my sentiment on it. I die cut the WPlus9 tree from foam adhesive and covered it with rainbow foil. Love how bright and happy the tree is. I mounted the tree onto my scalloped frame and finished off with the sequined thread.


Hope you're having a crafty day!





12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge





I have a tag today for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist Challenge.  I was inspired by Julia's tag on day 2 with her deer and her use of chunky glitter and the colour pink.


I used pink card stock for my tag and loosely covered a snow bank with white chunky glitter. I die cut two trees from felt and the little deer was die cut from wood paper.



Thanks for stopping by today!
