Guest Star Stamper
Sunday, 12 December 2021
I had a fun day today crafting and came up with this Christmas card.....
..........Pink, Turquoise, Green and Black.
and enjoyed using up some of my many liquid pearls.
It's actually a one layer card, which amazed me
with the amount of Liquid Pearls on it, that it didn't warp too badly.
Finishing off with some glitter stickles.
when we are all so very busy.
I really appreciate it.
The stamps are Visible Image

Pink, Silver and White....
and then re-stamped and heat embossed in Silver.
with the heat embossed silver leaves.
'white' pearl drops in the centre of the poinsettia
and edging two sides of the card with silver.
Not so much at the time!
Please stay safe and well.

Hiding from The Dust
We have had workmen in the house for the past 5 weeks.
Those of you who have had plasterboard and plastering done
will know exactly why I am 'chewing' dust and finding 'dust' everywhere!
I have escaped to my craft room and I have so enjoyed it......
Two challenges concentrated my mind to create Todays' Card......
Inspired By.... 'Friends' Fall together and that adorable Acorn
Color Throwdown and the wonderful colour combination
Here is my card.......
I relaxed and enjoyed water colouring with shades of Browns and Orange,
after stamping and heat embossing in gold.
I masked the leaves to do the heat embossed circles.
matting onto a layer of Kraft and die cutting the sentiment.
I so needed to 'craft' and I am so grateful for our hobby.
Thank you so much for popping in, I so appreciate it.
Inspired By.... 'Friends' Fall together - The super cute 'Acorn' was my starting point and so was a dear blog 'Friend' on the design team.

Lot's of fun with Autumn colours, water colouring, dies, stamps
and an embossing folder.....
Meet today's card......
I Started with die cutting the Hanging Florals from Pink Fresh
in gold metallic, dry embossed the centre and layered up from there
and cuts lots of leaves and a few acorns .....
I also stamped and heat embossed in gold the flower wreath.
Finishing off with a tiny sentiment and gloss over those acorns ....

The colours are RED, PURPLE and ORANGE......
I used a mix of gold and purple embossing powders,
which played nicely together on the die cut photo film frame,
the stamping/embossing on the left and the die cut number 1.
and heat embossing and loved the colour combination from the challenge.

Monochromatic Happy Birthday
Thankyou so much for all my kind and friendly comments on my last post,
which I really appreciated.
Today's card is mixed media and Monochromatic.....
The leaves have been stamped and half heat embossed with shimmer.
The die cut flower has been heat embossed with lots of UTEE on my pancake maker
for constant heat and swirled around with a cocktail stick whilst still molten.
stamping the Happy Birthday sentiments
I had so much fun making this card and it was sent to one very special lady.

You Are Loved
I have caught up with all the those jobs I should have done during the first lockdown.
So now it's time for Crafting......
I have managed to keep up with commenting,
so I haven't missed your amazing, inspirational and creative creations.....
I am so happy to be blogging again and here is today's card......
Inspired by my favourite challenge over at CAS Mix Up,
which is stamping through a stencil, hosted by Jenny.
After using the stencil and black archival ink I left it in place to do the stamping.
The flowers and leaves where heat embossed in white
and the crackle on the right with clear.
The colouring has been done with paints
and I finished off with a little doodling in white and black pens.
The background has been lightly dry embossed
and I also added the horizontal strips,
as I wasn't keen on them not been embossed.
Thinking of you all and what a friendly community we have.
I am very grateful to those who popped in occasionally and asked after me.
