Christmas Time

Morning everyone, here is my DT post this morning for Kanban, with something a little bit different. Kanban's new retail division Crafted By You  are going to be having these lovely wooden shapes to buy from the website when it is up and running , which shouldn't be much longer. I have decorated some to show you what can be done with them.

 These small hearts and stars come in packs of 10, I have painted the hearts red and decorated them with Britannia Hearts 900168 and ribbon..
I painted the stars with gold metallic paint and used Victoriana Embellishments to decorate them PCT19212 and also some ribbon.


 These large hearts come plain with a lovely red gingham ribbon. I have painted one red and then used some Britannia hearts 900168 to decorate it. The second heart I took two pieces of co-ordinating papers from the Bloomsbury pad, then I tore it up and then stuck it to the heart for a decoupage or deco patch effect. I then die cut a swirl from Retro Spots Lime CRD9719, and then used a flower from the Victoriana Lace sheet PCT1894, and on the other side I used a Victoriana Lace Butterfly PCT1891. I also changed the ribbon to match.



 For these two stars I painted one with the gold metallic paint, and then sanded it down slightly so the wood showed through, and then added die cut stars and snowflakes from gold mirri. The second one I inked and then decorated it with a Father Christmas Topper 900420 and some gold snowflakes.



 Lastly the tree, which I inked up and then used a border punch with some mirri card , then I punched some small snowflakes from Christmas red card 900106 and Christmas Holly Green 900367. I then finished it with some ribbon tied round the trunk and a star at the top.

I hope you like them and thank you for looking xxx

Buttons and Bows.

Good afternoon everyone, I'm back again this time with a post with my DT card for Kaboodle Doodles ,  this weeks challenge which is #146 is as my title says " BUTTONS AND BOWS " and for this challenge you need to use at least 1 button and some ribbon.

Here is my card.



For my card I used a shaped card, then I die cut a scalloped edge circle ,smaller than the base card. I then added a circle in the centre using silver mirri card. In the centre of that I put a bow, and then round the edge of the circle I glued some buttons.

Hope you like my card, and why not pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the design team have created for you for inspiration.

This weeks challenge has been kindly sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads , who have donated a $10 voucher for the winner.

Kanban for the boys !!!

Good afternoon everyone. It's that time of week again for my DT cards for Kanban. This week we have cards from the So Macho kit. There are some fabulous images in this kit, great for younger boys, teenagers and men.


For this 1st card I have used a shaped card, toppers from the Techno Geek sheet 900810, silver mirri card and some Binary Birthday Foiled background card 900839.

This 2nd card has been made using a shaped card and toppers from the Hole in One sheet 900826, which has been mounted onto gold mirri card.

If you went to the NEC last week you will have seen these cards on the "Crafted By You" stand, Kanban's new retail division. I was lucky enough to go on the Sunday, it was the 1st time I had ever been to the NEC, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and managed to catch up with some of my Kanban team mates too. Look who else I saw ...........

Hi all, this weeks challenge over at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog has now gone live. Challenge #142 is "Trick or Treat " this can include Fall cards, gift bags, treat bags or decorations.

Here is my DT card for the challenge.


I have made this card a rocker card for an added fun element.
