Are you ready for Christmas! need ideas for gift tags!. I had most of these embellishments cut out ready in my bit box, saved from projects not used.

These are my three Gift Tag designs using Poppystamp dies.."Stitched Main Street & Stitched Tunnel Tag dies, all use the largest size.

I`ll start with this cute "Surprise Deer" tag..I have cut the largest size in the set, shaded with blue ink and spritz with water, another tag one size down!  this  I have used the "Oak Leaf Oval Collage" die in the centre, added colour with Distress inks. On the reverse I added foam tape. adhered to the largest tag. Stamped Merry Christmas  from "Yuletide Birdies CL414" stamp set. Surprise Deer with Poinsettia Mini to finish.

This Gift Tag uses "Stitched Main Street" Tags again largest plus one size down adhered together.  I have die cut "Home For The Holidays" in green card ..White "Folk Star" these I adhered to the the red Tag, Next stamped "Merry Christmas over the star.
I die cut  the bits in colours. red/black/white for "Santa Chimney" coloured the white and adhered as shown on  a small tag. (Cute). Next Poinsettia Minis in Red and White layered up and adhered to the bottom of the wreath, gingham bow and snowtext paste to finish.

Red and White Tag. for my top layer tag in white  ..I tore a card piece and die cut to get  hill shape ..snowtext added this ..Deer Shaded in grey..as are the "Tree Trunks" White Glittered "Celeste Snowflakes" decorate this tag, with red "Mini Poinsettias"

Fairy Magic.

Good morning Friends and Visitors..
Sharing my post from over on http://poppystamps.typepad.com/ 

Now I thought these cute tiny fairies would come in handy! "Magnificent Mini Fairies"  think they make a cute filler for my "Floral Candle" display and perfect for the New Poppystamps "Large Window Cutout"

This is how I did my Window..from a card size 51/4" x 61/2".Place the Window die as shown.

Using the Snowscape die ..coloured with inks and sprayed with a mix of water/bleach..this I adhered to my main card 5 3/4" x  6 3/4".
I have used foam tape to the reverse of my card with the window cutout..onto this I placed a piece of Velum paper. Next adhere to the main card, so you have a small equal margin around.

Window complete with velum and cute fairy,  another from the set of three fairies added her wings ..placed with the script Fairy Magic.

Third Fairy among these beautiful "Floral Candles" " Poinsettia Mini" and "Greenery Bundle"  finished with a few random dots of gold liquid pearl drops.

Hope you like this card style as much as me, something I will create again.
Thank you for stopping by and any comments you leave. Pam

Vintage Winter Scene

Hello friends and visitors, back too  card making today.
And this is an easy quick make card..Mine was a bit longer as I did some colouring to fetch out more detail.


Decided on a night sky background..My first using Distress Oxide inks and bleach/water mix in a spray. I die cut post it tape with small circle die for my moon, fantastic tape, brilliant for holding dies in place or die cutting.
Using my distress Oxide inks with a sponge blender onto white card, light spray with my bleach/water mix, removed the circle, coloured with yellow oxide, rather pleased with the result lol.

Made a frame with creative expression square pinpoint dies..this I adhered to the small outer line on the Vintage Winter scene..  using thin strips of foam tape..

I have added colour to the scene with pro makers and before adhering this to my background I added Snowtex paste, as shown. also glittered the hanging snowflakes.

My main card size is 7"x 7".
Finished with a double cut of white & black Yvonne Creations Merry Christmas 

See how easy is this card..

Thank you for stopping by Pam x

Now I have`nt sewn for years!! most of my stuff I gave away..had to go rooting to make these cute birds.
Stuffing  Old Tea Cosy..New Felt.. New Nightdress for the pink gingham material.. lol

My old sewing machine decided to go up in smoke and all the electric went off ..
I tried to hand stitch around these cute birds!! to painful with arthritic hands!
I resorted to spray glue (from a friend) and some pva glue I had..
Talk about try my patients ..But did`nt intend to pack in..

Made these bow`s with my Bow-it-all.. beads a mix of necklace and pearls for my stick pins.

Chinese Lanterns, with embossed background.

Good morning friends and visitors, sharing my DT post from  Poppystamps blog

 I have created  an open card  with  "Hello" sentiment, which you can personalise inside with a greeting.

How delicate are these pretty "Chinese Lanterns" from Poppystamps.  I have placed them onto my embossed background. this is framed with a  frame I found in my bit box.
How I created my embossed background..using "Brilliant Leaf Frame".

Card size 6"x 71.2" I taped this in place..next ran through my die cutting machine! using a silicone/rubber mat you use to emboss your dies.

This is how it came out of my machine. I decided not to add any colour! as I wanted my Chinese Lanterns to be the focal point of the card.

White cut out of these Chinese Lanterns have been adhered as shown, then I then coloured in each cut out using my Pro Marker pens.

Then I cut these again in green card and adhered onto the whit ones on my card.

Next, my bit box frame I added orange detail with a pro marker, adhered flat to make a frame.  Sentiment also by Poppystamps with shadowed green Hello die cut. Foliage "Perfect Pine Needles", hessian bow cut with "Bow and String" die. added some dried foliage from a tree! no idea what though.

Thank you for stopping by Pam xx.
