About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

The Last Two!!

Here's the last of my samples - thought I'd do them both in one go as not sure if I'll have the time to blog later!!

So - what's left? Well, this is an A5 Landscape card, made with one of the Topper Companions and the matching Decoupage. Because it's landscape, the base card has to be made from an A3 sheet of card - in this case Centura Pearl Snow White Accents - Green.
I used the Die'sire Chantilly Lace Stamping frame for mounting the topper companions, and Lace Border 1 for the decorative edge. The white Centura pearl is embossed with Embossalicious A4 Holiday Holly, and I cut the embellishment with Die'sire Holly die. A little ribbon and some pearls finished it off.

If you love cutting decoupage layers - and adding lots of dimension to your cards, then make sure you check out the Decoupage section of the CD.

The second card is a tent fold DL card using one of the stamps. This one is called 'Christmas Cuddles'.
The base card is one of the paper designs printed onto Centura Pearl Snow White Hint of Silver, and I used some Core'dinations card in blue, red and purple. The blue strip of card is embossed with Embossalicious A4 Let It Snow folder, and sanded back. The snowflakes are cut using Die'sire Snowflake die. 

I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs: Dark Fur - IG9, 8, 7, 6, 5; Light Fur Shading - IG1, 2; Cheeks - FS6, Blender; Hat - DR3, CR11, 9, 7; Hat Trim Shading - TB1, Blender; Blanket - TB1, 2, 3; Presents - HB1, 2, 3, LV1, 2

Well - it's been a marathon week of sharing the Party Paws samples. So, now it's time to get on with all the other things on my crafting list. But don't forget to join Dawn on Create and Craft today for more Party Paws shows and inspiration.

Take care,
