Happy Bloomin Christmas

Hi all,

Today I thought I would show you cards from the Father Christmas kit (this kit was actually free with the Snowman one throughout the 4 day deal) although the deal has finished now but you can still buy it separately.

The kit has 4 sheets of Toppers of 12 sheets of printed A4 Card and here are a few of the cards I made with it. Of course I teamed it with gorgeous acetate that I have soooo fell in love with lol 



Hope you like my samples, Thanks for popping by my blog today

Classic Christmas

Hi all,

More cards to show you today using the fabulous Snowman & the Snowdog papercrafting kits.

For this card I used the Theater pop out card, but cut it all up to make a Gatefold style card - so this is the front closed
(I did re-adjust the wonky gem at the bottom before I sent it off lol)

Then this is the inside which I decorated up using a couple of sheets of the 6x6 papers

Another of the Snowstar card designs

Another version of the Pop out Box card - this time I popped acetate over the apertures and added the image to the inside back

And a few more cards using the Toppers & A4 Card Sheets

Snowman & Snowdog

Hi all,

Well I have been super busy over this last week, so much so that the cards I am going to show you today are a little late and what should have been sneak peeks are now more of a recap collection lol.

This week over on Create & Craft - Crafters Companion have seen the release of a new Snowman & Snowdog and Father Christmas collection. There were 2 CD Roms, 2 Papercrafting Kits, Mega Decoupage, 6x6 Papers, Acetate & Inserts.

I was lucky enough to work with the Papercrafting Kits and made a massive 37 cards in total, so will show them to you over the next few days.

So first of all the there are 3 different designs of concept cards within the kit -

Theater Card

Snowstar Card

Popout Box Card

Then there is the fabulous Mega Decoupage, which I teamed with some of the A4 Card sheets and the fabulous acetate

And finally there are 6 sheets of gorgeous toppers which I have used along with the A4 Card sheets & Acetate to make these 

I really enjoyed working with this kit and could have made have loads more but ran out of time. I loved the cards I made so much I didn't want to send them off -  so I have treated myself to another kit so I can remake for my own Christmas Cards lol!

I still have lots more cards to show you over the next few days, so please do pop back throughout the week to see the rest.

Happy birthday to Ewe!!

Hi all,

I have a little card to show you today that I am very proud to say appears in the latest Issue (Issue 51) of Complete Cardmaking

Not only did I make the front cover with a card I made for another DT (see post here), you can also see this card in the top LH corner too lol. When I was making the cards for the magazine I didn't realise they were for the same one, so it was a nice surprise when I saw it.

Anyway this card is using a fabulous image from Ladybug Crafts Ink and is part of the latest release called Eunice & Ramsey - which as you can guess is a gorgeous collection of the most adorable sheep couple. There are a selection of images free with this issue of the magazine, or if you want the full range you can get them HERE.

The image was coloured in using PM's and I teamed it with some fabby papers from Amercian Crafts (totally love this pad). All the little embellishments were from the £1 range at My Mums Craft Shop and the sentiment was printed from the computer (I just had to do it lol).

We still have our challenge running over on the LCI blog, its a CAS challenge and would love you to join in. You could win yourself 2 stamps of your choice or 4 stamps if you use a LCI image (if you get the mag you have plenty to choose from lol). The challenge runs until 2nd Sept as our head ladybug has gone home on her holibobs for a while. When she comes back we have some very big news so keep your eyes peeled.

All wrapped up for Christmas

Hi all,

Last of my Party Paws samples today (hope I haven't bored you with them). These are some more of the samples I made using the Papercrafting Kit and again I have tried to make them a little less pick and stick and into something a bit more special.

I really do think the acetate makes these cards so much more luxurious and loved using it as wraps (like on the blue card) to give it extra dimension, in the way you can pop some of the pieces under it and others on the top to give more of a 3D feel.

I have totally loved working with this kit and really wish I could get my hands on another, but I am not going to buy the CD's just to get another kit - not when I already have them lol.

Paws for Christmas

Hi all,

Still on the Party Paws showcase today, I want to show you some more of the cards using the fabulous CD Roms.

There are lots of new card designs on the CD's this time around including fabby Easel Cards & Lanterns that you can see below as well as the usual and popular Card Companions & Megapage. 

It really doesnt take much to turn these printed items into something special, just a bit of ribbon and a few flowers can really add to the look of the cards.

Lets celebrate Christmas

Hi all,

I hope those of you that tuned into Create & Craft over the weekend to check out the new Party Paws collection enjoyed the shows. I have some more cards to show you today but this time I used the fabulous Papercrafting Kit that is exclusive to C&C.

I love the ease of use of these kits and really wanted to show that just because its a Hunkdory Kit - It doesn't have to be a pick & stick card (which I think is generally the trend with HD kits) so I tried to make use of the A4 Cardstock in a different way and created cards with different folds etc, and of course I totally love the printed acetate that comes with this collection. So much so I have gone and ordered myself another 2 lots of it just to make sure I have enough for all my Christmas cards lol.

Hope I have given you some inspiration to look at these kits in a different way, to be honest (and I am probably one those people myself) I think there is sometimes a bit of snobbery when it comes to using kits like this, that it is not proper crafting as they are renouned for the beginner/ pick and stick crafter. But if you can use them in a different way like this and take the kit to the next level so to speak you can create gorgeous cards that do give that wow factor. - I have a few more to show you later on in the week, again using different folds.

Box of flowers

Hi all

It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up.

Our theme for this fortnight is :  Anything but square

Now for this challenge I decided to get clever and make one of those box cards that are proving to be very popular at the moment. Please someone remind me not to be too adventurous again when I am short on time - I just about made this in time to go live. I don't know about you but I always seem to be chasing my tail during school hols.

Anyway for the card I used the gorgeous image called - I love spring time - which is one of the images you can get free by subscribing to the Through the Craft Room Door magazine - please click HERE for more details.

So here is my card

The papers are an old DCWV pad (which I only had a couple of sheets left - I am really trying to use all my old papers up atm) and because I was short on time, I cheated with the flowers and used an old Dovecraft Pad called Garden Party which is full of Die Cut flowers, butterflies & swirls and matched perfectly with my papers!

Please pop on over to All Dressed up blog to check out the rest of my team mates creations, and why not enter the challenge whilst you are there. This challenge will run until 15th August and you could win yourself 3 images of your choice.

 **Please note** 
To enter our challenges you MUST use an All Dressed Up Image or Papers.

Don't forget to stop by our Facebook Group to keep up to date with all the latest All Dressed Up news, and chat to fellow crafters.
