Sweetie Tree

Not a card today but a sweetie tree. This was so easy to do and I saw a sample on the Pinflair stand at the NEC. The chocolates are the basics range from Sainsbury's and I thought they were perfect as they're all in plain but sparkly wrappers.

The first photo is taken using a flash and the second without, wasn't sure which one showed it off best??

It's my daughters birthday in a couple of weeks so we had fun making this and it didn't take too long. I also found some glitter wired stars to put in the top to finish it off.

And Another

Yet another card using the Christmas Star set.

The background uses the paisley stamp and clear embossing powder. I then used 4 tiles and stamped and coloured the smaller poinsettia onto each one. Then using ultra thick embossing powder and versamark embossed each tile three times to create a thick enamel. Whilst hot I sprinkled some frantage glitter and elements onto the tile when doing the final layer.

Another Christmas Star

This card uses the smaller poinsettia image from the Christmas Star set by Dimension Stamps.

Like yesterdays card this was made for one of their TV shows. The large doily is a cheery lyn die. The image is coloured using my trusty Promarkers and the greeting around the edge of the card is from the Word Perfect set

A Christmas Star

This card was made for Dimension Stamps with the poinsettia set a Christmas Star

I have stamped and embossed the main image onto vellum with some clear sparkle powder three times and then decoupaged the flower. The bottom half of the card uses the same embossing powder with some of the smaller stamps to make the background card.

Chloe's Stamps

Firstly I must apologise for the photo. I had placed this card in a bag and didn't take it out before taking the photograph so there is a bit of reflection.

The stamp is from Chloe's Creative Cards - flower heart wreath - and stamped and embossed with WOW embossing powder - gold sparkle
I added some gems and a craftwork cards sentiment.

Wedding Card

This card and money wallet were made for a neighbour. The request was red and modern. I thought these hunkydory stamps (celebrations) fitted the bill perfectly and so did they luckily.

I used a red versafine inkpad for the stamping and printed the name panels on the computer.
