Christmas Card no 2

As I said the other day my mum and I were playing with our craft stuff and made our first three cards. Did I mention we had a giggle because if anyone Knows us, we are a pair of scatter brains togother. Anyway as promised here is our second card
With this card we coloured the Lily of the Valley Bear stamp with Promarkers and matted it on to a Square Nestability. We cut three sets of mini Pointsettias and daubered the petals with black ink, finishing the centers with punched steamens and amber gems. The background paper is from a Papermania pad.
I hope you like xx

Kick off to Christmas

Hello everyone,
Friday I invited my Mum over for a play date. It's not very often we get a chance to craft together as I'm always working or something or other. She only lives a five minute drive away and we talk on the telephone alot, even though hubby said it would be cheaper to go to her house!
Anyway we decided to make a start on our Christmas cards, I was teaching Mum some new techniques with Nestabilities. We had so much fun! and such a laugh because as the saying goes "Like Mother Like Daughter".
Here is the first card of three we managed to get done.
We stamped the magnolia and cut the circle nestability out of the same layer of one card. then we added a bit of gold glitter paper to make it look like a bauble. I hope you like it we did! I'll show you  another card later.xx

In2crafting Challenge

Hiya all,
I have been busy playing around with ideas for my Nestability workshop that's coming up soon and realised I needed to get my November challenge card done for the shop I work at - In2crafting - Wickford.
The challenge is a sketch and the theme is circles. If your up for a great challenge too please feel free to join in and send your card into the blog or pop in to the shop.

For the background I used a cuttlebug folder - Carmello and distressed it with Worn Lipstick. Did the same on the Large scalloped and plain circles but also added Antique Linen. I stamped the Travelling Tilda with Black Memento ink and coloured her with Promarkers. I then used my white gel pen to add dots on her dress. The sentiment is from a set from Personal impressions. The paper flowers and gems are from Design Objectives.

Cuttlebug class

It is always such fun, but tricky trying to come up with more cuttlebug cards for my classes. After much happy playing I arrived at these cards. So here are my latest workshop cards.
With this card I thought you could create anything you like to go in the middle of the nestie shape. The Craft Concept folders are great because unlike most of the Provo craft folders they have a repeat pattern allowing me to create the beautiful green background.

This is a good card to use for a mans birthday or anniversary. We used the Papermania embossing folder and a Nellies frame for the sentiment.

This one is a clean and simple card using another new embossing folder from Craft Concepts and sentiment fragment is from Crafts Too.
I hope you like. xx

Dads Birthday


It was my Dads birthday on the 26th of October so I wanted to make a quick card as you do when your always busy. So I thought the best way was to case a card that I saw on one of my favourite blogs" Lily of the Valley" I changed the papers, added a hand drawn" For Sale" sign and used embellishments that I had to hand but just had to use the same image as my Dad is like a little boy with his toy's.
What a fun card to make. I hope you like it too.
Hugs Di xx
