I made another Christmas card - I told you I'm trying to stock up. lol
I used the cute Pickle with poinsettia from Wild rose studio and colored him with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. Isn't he a cutie? On the white part of his hat I used Icicle Stickles. On the white oval paper behid Pickle I stamped with Inkadinkado Gem stone jewels stamps and applied some red glitter glue over the stamped images. I also used TH Snow flurries embossing folder. The star paper and the polka dot paper are from Folia and the blue paper with snowlakes is actually an old, old freebie postcard that I just found among my stash the other day. The fence is a TH die. The gems are from my stash and the ribbons are from Crafty ribbons.
Hi there! I can't believe it's Monday again. Why do weekends always go by so quickly?! I hope you had a nice weekend that that this week won't be too stressful for you.
It's already 11th day of the Beast of British event at CRPI blog. Today our sponsor is Crafty Individuals and they have this awesome prize for the lucky winner.
I got to play with one of their images and here's what I came up with ...
I used 2 different patterned paper on this card. One (the one on the top) is from FOlia and the other one (the bottom one) is from Voorjaar. Icolored the image with Faber Castell pencils. The doily and gems are from my stash. Do you see these pretty butterflies? They are cut from this ribbon that is available in Crafty ribbons store. The yellow ribbon is from Crafty ribbons too. :)
That's all from me today. I hope you like my card and that you'll hop to CRPI blog to see the fab work of my teamies too. :) Hugs!

I made a Christmas card for today - I'm trying to stock up. lol
I used the sweet image by Elizabeth O. Dulemba - you can find it here. I colored the image with Promarkers. All the patterned papers are from Provo Craft. The snowflakes are Marianne Designs dies. I cut them from the white cardstock and then covered them with glitters to give them a sparkly look. The doilyand crystals are from my stash. I used 2 different ribbons on this card - both of them are from Crafty ribbons. I used Tri stripe ribbon from the Best of British collection and Tan satin ribbon. Other items I used on my card are Spellbinders Fancy tags and circle dies and my border punch.
It's day 8 of the Best of British event and once again we have a fab sponsor ... Indigo Blu. I have only just discovered their stamps and I LOVE them! You probably know I like wintage and they have many stamps that are perfect for making vintage projects. They are generously giving the lucy winner this gorgeous stamp set.
I'm sure you know the drill by now, but just in case you just found out about this event now ... If you want to be in the draw for this fantastic prize, you just need to hop over to Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog and leave your info with the linky.
And here's the card I made using one of their stamps.
This card was made for a very special lady. A lady (her name is Susan), who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. You can read more about this at Patricia's blog. It would be great if you could help cheer Susan up with a card too. ;)
I love this quote and I thought it would be perfect for my card. The greyish paper in the back is from my stash, the pink background paper is from Heidi Grace and the pink one behind the sentiment is from Provo Craft. I made the big flower myself from a yellow cardstock and I also added some diamond Stickles on the leaves. I also use Stickles on the butterflies and on the words "dance", "sing" and "live". The small flowers are my craft punch and so are the butterflies. In the center of the small flowers I added a pearl, which also came from my stash. The ribbon is of course from Crafty ribbons. I'm really happy with how this card turned out and I hope Susan will like it too when she gets it.
Heya! How are you doing? I'm having a wonderful day. :) It's already Thursday which means weekend is just around the corner. Do you have any plans for the weekend yet? I'm planning to do lots and lots of crafting. :D
Today I have a bit more things to tell you ...
Firstly, I want to remind you that the Best of British event is still goin on at Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog and today is the 7th day of the event. Once again sweet Ali and Tony from Crafty ribbons are sponsoring the event. Ali is celebrating her birthday today (so I hope you'll show her some love :D) and since it's the 24th of the month the prize (which you can get by simply jumping to the Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog and leaving your info with the linky thingie) is a £24 voucher for Crafty ribbons store. Truly amazing prize, isn't it? Just imagine all the gorgeous ribbons you can buy with this ...
Secondly, a new challenge just started at Crafty ribbons challenge blog and the theme is "easel card". I hope many of you will come play with us. :) And yes, we have a prize for one lucky participant in the challenge as well. :) The lucky winner of the challenge will win these gorgeous ribbons from Crafty ribbons.
I have only done 2 or 3 easel cards by now so I was a bit worried about this challenge but at the end I was happy with how my card turned out. What do you think of it?
I used the cute Anya from TGF as my main image and I colored her with Promarkers.The red paper you see in the background is from Provo Craft. I used the Spellbinders die for the background and stamped over it with Stampabilities Faded text background stamp. I also used Marianne design swirl die and TH fence die. The butterfly is MS punch. I made flowers on the left upper corner myself - the roses were made with TH Tattered florals die and the center one was made from a circle that I got with Spellbinders die. The flowers on the fence and in the right bottom corner (all except the white one - that is from TH Tattered florals die) are my craft punch. The beads are from my stash. And the ribbon is from Crafty ribbons. :)
I hope you'll come and play with us at our challenge and don't forget to participate in the event as well. :)
If you check Pink tulip creations site you'll notice that they carry lots of different products of various brands. I used some of those on my card too.
I made a thank you card because I don't think you can ever have enough of these on stock. It's a simple card, but I hope you like it. I didn't use any patterned paper, just some white, red and brown papers. I embossed the white paper with Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder. The ribbon is from Crafty ribbons and the butterfly is MS punch. The bigger flowers are a TH die and the small ones are my craft punch. I also used some Spellbinders dies and TH Brushed corduroy distress ink. The stamps is from Fiskars.
That's all from me today. See you tomorrow with another card and another great prize to be won. ;)

I made a vintage card for today. :) Look, here it is ...
Some time ago I found this gorgeous free vintage teacup digi stamp and I also found a matching sentiment digi and couldn't wait to use it. I didn't do any coloring, I just applied a tiny bit of TH brushed corduroy distress ink on the images. I made the papers myself. The background paper was originally white, so I colored it with TH distress ink and stamped over it with Stampabilities Faded text backgound stamp (you can see the tutorial on how I make this kind of paper; on tutorail I also showed you how to add glitters, but I didn't do this here, otherwise it's the same technique). The paper on the back of the teacup was just plain brown so I stamped over it with Viva decor Floral embellishment stamps. I also used my border punch and the "Stops for tea" ribbon from Crafty ribbons (from the Best of British collection). It was perfect for this card.
I hope you like my card and that you'll stop at Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog to see what my teamies made too.

This is the first step card I've made and I had so much fun with it! :D For my center image I used the gorgeous butterfly stamp from Close to your heart. It's a bit hard to see this in the picture, but I added some diamond Stickles on the butterfly's wings. The thank you stamp is from Fiskars. The big flower is made with EK success Carnation dimensional flower punch. I made the rose with TH Tattered floral die and the rest of the flowers and the tiny butterflies are my craft punches. The swirl is a Marianne design die. The ribbon is from Crafty ribbons - from their Best of British collection. I made the background paper myself.

Hello there! Nice to see you here. :) I hope you've been having a good weekso far. Mine has been pretty busy, so I am really looking forward to the weekend.
Today a new challenge started at Crafty ribbons challenge blog. We have a perfect theme for this time of the year - we want to see FLOWERS somewhere on your creation. I LOVE using flowers on my projects and I know many of you like to use them too so I hope to see lots and lots of entries in this challenge. :) And we have some flowery prize for the lucky winner too. Look ...
Aren't these buttons just too cute? And the colours. So beautiful! If you want to win a box of these fabby buttons all you need to do is to play with us at our challenge and cross your fingers - it might help. ;) And if you can't wait, you can get these at Crafty ribbons store. :)
For this challenge I wanted to create something different. So I used my old tape stand, painted it with white acrylic paint and decorated it with handmade flowers, gorgeous saddle ribbon from the Baby collection and some butterflies (these are a MS punch). I also used my boder punch, flower punch (for the small flowers), Viva decor pearl pen and Marianne design die. I saw something similar (decorated tape stand) quite some time ago when I was browsing the internet and I loved the idea and have been wanting to do it myself ever since. And now I did it. And I have to admit I am happy with how it turned out. :) And now I have a fancy shabby chic ribbon stand. Tadaaaaa. :D The pink swiss dots ribbon is also from Crafty ribbons - also from the Baby collection.
Now you probably want to see what my creatio looks like, don't you? Here it is ...
What do you think of it? I hope you like it. :) My teamies also have some awesome projects to share with you so hop to the Crafty ribbons challenge blog to see their creations. And while you are there, why not join the challenge too. ;)
