A Friend's Wedding Card

Hey everyone!

Just a quick one from me tonight with a card I made for my friend's wedding at the weekend. I apologise for the poor picture, but with the dark nights I don't see much daylight in the winter with working all day. 

The stamp is an All Dressed Up stamp and it was perfect for my friend's wedding card. In fact after showing it to her a few months back she insisted that I made her card using it. 

It was coloured using my Spectrum Noir pens and then I added frantage to the background. The image was cut out using Spellbinders Pierced Circles and the banner die is from La La Land Crafts. The embossing folder is a Crafter's Companion Embossalicious Rose Vine. 

As always thank you for taking the time to stop by. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:

Crafter's Companion November Challenge - Winter/Christmas

Evening Everyone! 

Hope you are all keeping well. I've noticed that winter is well and truly on its way with the drop in temperature over the last couple of days, so just wanted to share a card I made for this month's Crafter's Companion Challenge, which is Winter/Christmas and where you can enter here.

I used one of the Bebunni stamps for the topper and coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir pens. 

I added a product called Snow Tex to the flowers and edge of the card to give it a wintry feel. I also added some Twinklets to the centres of the flowers to give the impression of frost/ice.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

Christmas Wreath


Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. I went on a day trip to Blackpool yesterday and spent way too much on grabber machines. I did manage to win my daughter two teddy bears, so she was more than happy! Intended to drive through the lights, but no sooner set off the car park and she was fast asleep! There's always next year :-). 

Anyway, I'm back tonight with a project I  made from the materials in the recent Crafter's Companion Inspiration 5. I'd seen these wreaths on browsing Pinterest and that's where I took my inspiration from. 


1. Using 2 sheets of centura pearl cut out 2 rings with an outer diameter of 21cm and an inner diameter of 10cm.
2. Print 3 A4 sheets onto satin finish printer paper (double sided) from free CD and then cut (width ways) into 5mm strips. Divide into 2 piles of each colour.
3. Starting in centre of each strip curl paper outwards using bone folder and then curl other end.
4. Once all paper curled glue onto one of the rings using collall (tacky glue) until all covered.
5. Glue bow to the top using collall (glue gel) and tape ribbon onto back of ring to make a loop.
6. Spray with spray and sparkle (silver) and then glue other ring to the back.

Thank you as always for taking the time to stop by. I'm on the count down this week for the NEC craft show, which I'm going to on Friday. Have booked the day off work and have been stashing my cash for a few months now. Hopefully will be back with the results of my haul!
