Scrapwest "Christmas"

The Scrapwest theme this week is " Christmas " I stamped and gold embossed the Santa image, and added stickles glitter to beard and berries, I then mounted it onto contrasting card and embossed with the cuttlebug script template then onto the gorgeous new pop coulture 12x12 Lacy Cardstock. I finished the card off with sparkly diamond gems and white organza ribbon.

I finally found time to make a few christmas cards before last post tomorrow. I kept them very simple with the quote,

and enjoy every golden hour "

Scrapwest " Halloween "

The Scrapwest theme this week is " Halloween " so I decided to make a layout with the Capt'n Jack papers, for the map I used a rubber stamp and made a treasure chest filled with gems like the one I made for the Scrapwest cyber crop.

Scrapwest " Focus on your photo"

My Scrapwest entry this week is my take on Caroline's flag book, I made it with less folds and kept the panels a bit different so they open as one page but the idea is much the same, It neatly holds 23 of my favourite photos I took this year.I finished it off with organza ribbon and heart embellishments

Scrapwest " Autumn Glory "

The Scrapwest theme this week was set by Caroline and was " Autumn Glory " I have Autumn Photos on my Photo Blog but decided to make a card instead of a layout. I have so many rubber stamps that I don't use enough , I decided to use one of my favourites, I coloured it in browns and yellows to create an Autumn feel , I found this card really difficult to scan or photograph maybe it is the colours ?

Wednesday stamper " Autumn Colours "

The theme for the Wednesday stampert this week is " Autumn Colours " .

October is my favourite month I love the change in colour everywhere so I couldn't resist this theme. The first thing I thought of to achieve the colours was alcohol inks so that's what I used for the background I stamped the pumpkins and layered them then added some diamond glaze to highlight.

Wednesday Stamper " Moo card "

This weeks theme for Wednesday stamper is " Moo " A Moo card ) A moo meaning (mini) card measures 2,8 x 7 cm . To be honest when I read the theme my first thought was " I must have some cow stamps somewhere " I have never heard of a moo card =0) I enjoyed making these I suppose they are a smaller version of an ATC.

Wednesday stamper " Fish "

This weeks Wednesday Stamper theme is " Fish " I made a card with two backgrounds, For one of the backgrounds I sprayed vellum with gold webbing spray the other I coloured with watercolour paint direct to cs and blended in, when dry I embossed and added diamond glaze to give a swirly sea effect. I stamped and embossed the Koi fish and coloured with chalk.
