All Hearts!!!

Hello! Just thought to post some of the Valentines Cards I made this year. I really enjoyed making them & used a few papers & ribbons I have been hanging on to for quite a while! I really love the "Jolie Chocolate Papers" By S.E.I. And the Cavellie &Co Stamps I used on the French style card.

I love the way these two cards came out looking Vintage thanks to Cosmo Cricket. The papers I used are from a Scrapbooking kit that I bought from QVC at christmas. The Diamond embossed heart is from the "Tim Holtz" Grungeboard collection, and the other stamped heart is a free stamp from one of the card making magazines I got this month. And the Red flocked swirl is from a Basic Gray chipboard set I had. And of course were would we be without good old "Stickles" I love it!!! cant remember were the Love stamp came from?

The last two I am posting are what are I would traditional looking cards, I used some lovely lace I had stashed away, it was really for a sewing project, but I was wanting to do something a bit diffrent, and I am pretty into flock at the moment too, so just had to try used that too! And I loved the way the embossed hearts turned out too, again another super set of free stamps that came with a monthley magazine.

Well at the moment I am mad for anything Damask! I have been making quite a few cards using some "Laura Ashley Stamps" and I have just had a small net shop and have some beautiful "Kelly Panacci" Damask stamps on the way & some Prima stash as well as some velvet rub on's from "Little Yellow Bicycle" love letters collection! Anyway hope you like what I did! Happy crafing guys!

Brrrr It's Cold!

Brrr It's Cold!!!........Yes its official, we in England have had the biggest snowfall for 18 years! It's over 8 inches in my garden. Ok so it's not hugely deep, but hey for us it's great, well maybe not great being as we have come to a complete standstill here. But more time for Crafting!!!!! Yeah!!! So here's my latest offerings.

I have used Kay & Co Papers & the Stamps are "Mindy's Flowers" from Autumn Leaves. I like the composition of the card, I think it sits well together, and I just had to use the Organza ribbon I had, the pic don't really do it justice!

This was a bit of a mix of stuff I had & thought ok what can I do? Don't know if I like it yet? But I do love the little mother of Pearl Buttons, cute eh!

This was using some Cosmo Cricket Paper I got in part of a Great kit QVC had on offer at Christmas, there was loads & loads of stuff in it, Papers, Chip Board, Stickers, Die Cuts, Two Scrapbooks, Ribbons, Brag Books to decorate & tons of other goodies yet to make! The Corners are from another kit I bought from Create & Craft it was the Victorian Cameo & Butterflies Kit. Again another great value kit, loads of card stock, stickers, boarder peel offs, Paper, a lot of stuff can be made from this kit! And also its my first use of the wonderful Sakura Pens!!! Just drew round the corners & paper, but its a lovely bit o glitz! I got the Stardust ones from "The Stamp Pad" in Greenfield, A fantastic shop with Lots & lots of wonderful crafting goodies, I must say it's the best shop I have come across in my area!

And lastly I just had to try out some of the "Coredinations" paper, its from the Nostalgia super assortment. You get two of each colour in the pack & there are 80 sheets in 40 colours great value. The stamps are from Impression Obsession "Damask Floral" and the sentiment is a HOTP stamp embossed in Bronze. I have used stickles glitter glue for the flower head. I love the dusky pink & brown tones in this card, my fave colours at the moment.

Well, that's it for now! I am heading out to the "Stitch & Creative Crafts Show" on Friday, hope to come home with some crafting goodies to try out! And maybe I will remember to take some pic's of the some of the Booth's too, although I am not promising as I get way to busy looking at the stalls & checking out all the new stuff & paper & sparkly stuff!!!!! oooooo cant wait! Craft Heaven! Anyway enjoy the rest of your day & thanks for looking!
