I wanted some large sparkly centres for paper flowers and decided to make my own.
These were really simple to do, just used a hot glue gun to drop some blobs on a silicone sheet, then covered with glitter.

And this was the card I wanted the sparkly-blob centres for. It's an 8 inch easel card,  I used Go Kreate dies to make the card blank.
Papers are all Lili of the Valley, stamps are a mix of Waltzingmouse and Papermania.

Country Landscape

Country Landscape die by Memory Box
Ticket die and punch are SU
The 'snow' is chunky white embossing enamel

The card was one of our craft club projects but we needed something else to go with it. If in doubt make a box...

Candi Tree

Christmas tree stamp is by Woodware, I've used card candi and some gems to decorate.

I'm not sure what brand the snowflake stamps are (you can just see them on the kraft card-blank). There's a really friendly craft shop in Kendal if you're ever in the Lake District. They do workshops there and now and again they sell off some of their old workshop stash. I picked up the set of snowflake stamps for £3, no packaging hence me not knowing who manufactures them.

I've also made a matching wine-carrier to go with the card.

Please excuse the dreadful photographs. I have asked Santa if he will teach me a few tricks with a camera. I did actually buy a new camera about sixteen months ago and have yet to take it out of the box!
Worse is that my husband (aka Santa) is a very keen photographer so I should have no excuse. He's just had one of his photos chosen for a charity calendar of the Lakes and is about to have something published in a national photography magazine, fingers crossed he can help me improve my sad little blog efforts.

Season's Greetings

I managed to find some gorgeous shimmery purple card at one of the fill-a-box places recently and knew it would be great for Christmas cards.
I've used a Docrafts embossing folder on the gold card, and stamped and heat embossed (with clear powder) on the purple using a HOTP swirl stamp.

The bauble and sentiment stamps are by Waltzingmouse, dies are by Spellbinders.
The finished card is 7 x 7 inches.

Happy Anniversary

Thanks for bearing with me!

Anniversary card for my parents (married 54 years today)

Very dull here when I took the photographs, hence the weird colours, but hopefully you get the gist.
I've used a Sue Wilson die, the sentiment stamp is by Chloe, and I've added Glamour Dust.

The metal heart clip is from my stash and I've looped some white tulle net through it.
