A Little Christmas Love with Bluebell

Good morning to you
 

Today as you know is my


day and I am out of my CAS style, well for a while anyway.  This is one of those "Wife" cards made for those blokes at my husbands work. So a little more love and detailing just for them and as you know I just cannot help myself.

So I made a 15cm square card with the beautiful new release image and sentiment


So the base layer is more of that rich red and those new and fabulous Papermania  Christmas papers.  I punched the right side edges with my MS corner punch before adding a punched edge to hold that triple bow (ribbon from the Hobby House) and the grand decorative nestie collection to support the image.  The charm, pearl medallion, cherry blossom and red and silver little pearls also from the Hobby House, the link is in my side bar.

here is a close up showing the stickles glitter added and the copic colouring
A superb image for a loving couple :)

and then just a reminder of that

Favourite Things

Now my favourite thing is this sweet image and it is just perfect for my recent "Wife" card requests
This is an 8" card
The base layer and contrast is a deep burgundy, with those lovely new Papermania papers on the top.  I used one of my grand decorative nesties to create a layer to add the image too.  Before adding a lovely lush ribbon with a gold/pearl brad (cut) onto the top of the bow from the Hobby House, a little charm (Hobby House) and then an array of flowers from various places.  I finished off with those gorgeous Hobby House pearls - the link to the Hobby House is in my side bar.

I am now in full swing of creating Wife Christmas cards for the blokes at my husbands work.  But here is another cute CAS

I could not resist our little Bluebell again

So the base layer on this one is red, with those deep burgundy little pearls from the Hobby House.  
I added the sentiment a new one from my Stamp Man winnings :)

PEARLS

themed challenge at the 


and here is my inspirational piece

so do hope you will join us.

so here is my piece
I got this at the Doncaster Dome a while ago and just never got around to doing anything with it, but felt now the time was right so I gave it a couple of coats of gesso, some old stash papers and then added all my gorgeous Hobby House embellishments, including those fabulous string PEARLS :)

here are some more photo's for you on close up
I used the pearl strings around the bottom piece, and also the top and bottom of the top piece and also around the top.  There was a pattern on the lid which lent itself so well to the pearl flourish flowers and then I just added some of those gorgeous roses and some rose leaves and a little tag.

I cut the pearl flourishes up into sections to fit.

They did not quite meet up in the middle at the back but not to obviously wrong, I thought was okay.

 Those Hobby House products for you

Cute CAS Christmas

Good morning to you

just thought I would share another of  my 


cards that I have made for his mum


I went with some unusual colours on this one

The image is

The base layer is turquoise.  The Sentiment is one of my new ones from a win at the Stamp Man (thank you)  The bling is from Grimsby Crafts, I have sadly run out of my turquoise Hobby House Rhinestones, maybe another visit and stock up is needed :) anything for an excuse................... but these rhinestones are on that plastic runner and although it works well on the circle it does not work so well on a CAS white card on the strips :( won't try that one again.

here is a close up showing the stickles glitter added and the copic colouring

These panels are fabulous for such quick makes
The base layer on this one is silver mirror card and the papers are some gorgeous glitter lilac's from a stack I got a Grimsby Crafts.  I cut the panel into a round with my spellbinder small circles and framed it with the scallop circle.  I added an MS snowflake double punched edge and rapped some gorgeous ribbon from Crafty Ribbons around this.  I then made a triple bow and placed this on top, all before finishing off with my favourite Hobby House Embellies, those pearls, charms, rhinestone sparkler and a small white poinsettia flower.  The link the Hobby House is in my sidebar.

Good morning to you

Starting the week off with a little 


and a little apology for not posting as frequently as I would like to - but then that is all now going to change.  As I have a new lady starting at work and his mum's fair is next weekend, so if I have not done it now, it more than likely won't get done.

So here is one of my quick makes for his mum

The base layer is turquoise and the image has been stamped straight onto my top layer which is 250 gsm, my new copic card-stock it is gorgeous and really makes the colours pop.
I added some little red rhinestones from the Hobby House
I added the sentiment a new one from my Stamp Man winnings :)
