Gingerbread House Challenge #61…

IMG_2961I have made a tag for a pressie still to be shared. I will be linking this up to the challenge over at the Lollipop Ladies.  I think I should just make it.

I used Die namics tag stax die, AnnaBelle stamps digi paper and dies from Lifestyle crafts. I drew the features on the gingerbread people with white gel pen. I can’t believe I haven’t had ink on my fingers for days now!

Sharing a few pics of my Christmas tables before everyone arrived. Hope you all had a great Christmas/Festive Holiday.

Thanks for taking the time to have a peek.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!




Pinwheel challenge at Embellish Magazine and The Greeting Farm Fresh Friday

Hi. Hope everyone’s day has got off to a great start. Student free day so have my youngest home today plus I am expecting some tradesmen any time now! We all know how predictable tradies are right?

Anyway I have two cards to share today.

Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm

The first is for The Greeting Farm Fresh Friday Challenge Paper Piercing. This is a technique I only tried a little while ago and I am enjoying it.

I have used The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Collection along with sentiment from PTI Train Tracks. I used Twine from SU, cardstock from American Crafts and Pebbles. A Fiskars border punch and tag die from life style crafts. This card is for a 13 year old girl I think she came up alright.

The second card is a first for me. This is the first pinwheel I have ever made. I was surprised at how easy it was. I used DSP from MME Miss Caroline for the pinwheel and a brad from my stash along with a tooth pick for the handle. I used PTI Tiny Tags and die stamped with SU Regal Rose and Soft Suede tied with Blossom twine from the The Twinery. The other cardstock is also from my stash. I punched out butterflies from kraft cardstock using carl and armada punches. Finished off with some rhinestones and hand drawn butterfly trials.

Thanks for stopping by.



Moxie Fab world – Minty Fresh Challenge

I am entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Minty Fresh Challenge.

I used papers from Scrapbook Boutique Sand and Surf pack. I embossed the white background with SU Sizzix Embossing card Elegant Bouquet – to match the texture of the phone cover. I made the cake using cardstock and punched the flowers with Carl Kikyou punches (CP 1 & CP 2). This would be the first time in a long time that I have made a card with out stamps and ink! I did use a black marker for the centres of the small flowers the large flowers have a brad.
