Crafteezee DT - All Dressed up - Little Skater



Hello crafty friends,  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  

I'm here to bring you my project today for

Crafteezee

I inked up this sweet All Dressed up stamp called Little Skater 
and paired her up with some adorable Mintay papers called
The Sweetest Christmas.  I used Lady E design Poinsettia dies
 and  mixed media artist's  paper to make the pretty poinsettia's, 
the sprays of foliage  were also made using LadyE design herbs dies. 


Little Skater was coloured using copics and Derwent soft pencils, paper stumps
and Sansodor Low odour Solvent oil colour for blending.


Another close up of those fabulous flowers with gesso and glass glitter
added to the edges of the petals.

 Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope
you enjoyed your stay and do please come back and see me soon.

Mixed Media altered light bulbs


Hello my dears I hope you are looking forward to a fabulous weekend, 
the weather here in Scotland hasn't been great so I'm cosied up in my
craftroom making little unusual extra stocking filler gifts for my friends 
and family Christmas. 

I got a little carried away after I finished painting and decorating the first lightbulb 
(these are actually heavy drinking glasses in the shape of light bulbs) the inspiration
came from Emilia Sieradzan (Lady E Design) who has a fabulous tutorial
over on her YouTube channel HERE

The bulb above  has the colour combo of Teal and white and is a similar design as the 
pink one but with different wood elements and paper flowers and gems.

 The one below has a colour combo of Gold & White which has been highly glittered
with Gold Glamour dust.  

The poinsettia's have been made using Rosy Owl poinsettia die and the leaves have been
made using Lady E design 002 dies

Below is a picture of them all grouped together.  I am so pleased with how they
turned out.  I am for sure going to be making more but this time it will be for my
own Christmas corner decorations. lol


Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you like my creations 
and once again thank you to Lady E for the inspiration. 

You can see the walkthrough video on my You Tube Channel

Crafteezee DT - All Dressed Up!! What to Wear.

Hello crafty friends,  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  

I'm here sharing my project as a member of the Design Team for 

Crafteezee


 This time I decided to make a DL card (haven't made one of these in ages)
I used the gorgeous All Dressed Up Stamp called "What To Wear"

She has been coloured with Distress Re-inkers and fussy cut out before
adding her to the mount.  I also stamped some of the hearts and 
the sentiment from the same stamp set. 



 The papers are from Stamperia and are called Grand Hotel.  I paired my main
image mount with the lovely Fantasy die which was cut out twice and added 
just behind the image. 

The small Gardenias, rose and Lady E Design leaves die set off the card perfectly
along with the lovely pearl trim.

Prepping Poinsettia's for Christmas

Hello crafty friends!!  I'm here today to show you my handmade flowers
using various mediums such as Foamiran, Watercolour Paper, Mixed Media
Paper and 12x12 luxury Card stock from The Works



These pink Poinsettia were made using the luxury 220gsm textured cardstock
from the Range.  I coloured the centres with Tim Holtz Fired Brick distress ink pad.


The Gold poinsettia were made using 160 gsm Premier Mixed Media artists
pad (size A3) from Aldi and I used Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress ink pad to
colour them.  
 The flowers above and below we made using red Foamiran 0.06  I added a little
gesso on the tips and dipped them into German glass glitter
 The last poinsettia we made with white 0.06 Foamiran and the centres were coloured
using standard colour box ink pads. Once gain the tips have been treated with 
gesso and dipped into glass glitter.  

All the dies used in the making of the flowers and leaves were from
LadyE design 

I've had a lovely flower making few days, now I need to get them all
onto various projects in readyness for Christmas.

Have a fabulous day everyone.

Sweetest Christmas!!!

 Hello dear crafty friends,  I'm here today to share my latest Christmas card with you
Once again I've used the beautiful Mintay Papers, this time I chose to go with
their Sweetest Christmas collection. 

My card is an 8"x 4.5" so the 6x6 wouldn't fit until I decided to use two sheets and 
started fussy cutting out the curtains, bottom section and snipping into the tree and 
varius other bits.  I think it turned out so pretty.

The poinsettia are hand made using white 200gsm watercolour
card and colured with colourbox inks. I used  LadyEdesign poinsettia dies and leaves
adding white gesso to the tips before adding the German glass glitter. I did the same
thing to the leaves and ferns. 
 Thank you so much for popping in to visit with me, I hope you like my sweet
Christmas card and that you will come back and see me soon.

Have a wonderful weekend.
