Christmas Tag

Yes I have followed the 12 days of Christmas on Tim's blog, but not made any and the stamping onto an embossing folder was the technique that really inspired me to make this tag.
I have used a Penny Black poinsettia stamp with chalk ink and cuttlebug leafy branch folder and coloured using Tim's instructions, I also liked the ruffling with the tape but haven't got any so put some double sided tape onto the ribbon and ruffled that .
Hope you like my take on a Christmas tag

A little bit of bling

I love to wear a bit of bling but when it comes to cards me and bling don't mix to well lol so a simple card with a little prisma glitter and 3 tiny star gems fits the bill for the challenge for Lots To Do this week.

Lots To Do

The challenge this week is your favourite technique  well thats like asking you to choose you favourite child lol but I love both my sons and all my stamps :)  so I choose to do something I have done for a while the Bandana technique with distress inks and another stamp I got at the NEC form a stamp in the hand and leaves from Magenta . So this is the last page for the 5x5 book swap. I have really enjoyed doing this swap and hope who ever gets my pages will be as pleased with them as I am

First for Christmas

Long time no blogging sorry folks but me and the new laptop are now getting to know each other better after the old one frooze locking everything up but thanks to a lovely young man most has now been added to the new one but windows 7 has rearanged all my files in it's own style not mine lol .

So here's my offering for Christmas at Penny Black Allsorts and  Sir Stampalot challenges. The snowman is Penny Black I got it at the NEC and the text from a clear set I have, so I have made a card some gift tags and boxs. I have to say that the white WOW embossing powder is fantastic so fine :)
