Special Friends

Here is a card I made for a special friend who is finding things tough at the moment.

The background card for the card is made using the back of a piece of Centura pearl and the following Tim Holtz distress inks;

Festive berries
Rusty Hinge
Ripe Persimmon

I then sprayed over someLuminarte Radiant Rain in;

Apple Blossom.

The stamps used are from Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy range.
The Flowers are from Flower Power and the sentiment from Through The Rain and is so very appropriate.

I matted and layered onto some black card and some brown craft card and then onto a 8X8 black card blank.

To finish I added  some black button and black satin ribbon.

I just hope it will put a smile on her face.

More Sweet Treats


I thought I would share another  Gable Christmas Sweet Treats box made using the stunning Sweet Treat Embossing boards from Crafters Companion . 

I printed a backing paper from the Barkley Christmas papercrafting CD onto light card and embossed on the board following Sara's instructions from You Tube. These are great and so easy to follow if you are new to embossing boards.

Once I had made the box up I attached some cream lace around the middle and die cut some Ivy using the diesire die and some Coordinations card. I then made up a rose using the Diesire quilling dies and attached this at the top right hand corner of the box.

I cut out a Diesire scalloped tag using some cream card and added a sentiment from the Diesire sentimental stamp range and added some red ribbon and a couple of snowflakes to finish.

Another box made and ready for its home made christmas gift.

Christmas Sweet Treats

Well its not to long until Christmas is here so I thought I should make some boxes for some of the gifts I have made.

The Sweet Treats embossing boards from Crafters Companion are just the thing and there are great You Tube clips to help you if you are stuck for ideas.

For my 1st project I took 2 sheets of A4 card and using the Makey Bakey Mice Christmas CD I printed out my chosen design which was from the coordinating paper section. 

I then embossed the card on the Gable box board and cut out and assembled as per Sara's instructions on the you tube clip.

To decorate I used a topper from the Makey Bakey christmas papercrafting kit and embossed some Centura pearl card using the Diesire Snowflake die

To finish I Embossed some more Centura pearl using the Scalloped Tags and stamped a sentiment on from the Christmas sentimental stamps and a bit of ribbon to finish.

Gable box

Project number 2 was the Milk carton from the same embossing boards.

I made this from plain card and then decorated with some papers printed from the Makey Bakey Christmas CD  and again added some of the stunning snowflakes a another topper from the Christmas papercrafting kit.

Another tag and sentiment as above.
