Avery Elle: Polar Pals and Snow Much Fun

Good Monday to you!  I’m on the Avery Elle blog today with some projects using two cute stamp sets and dies from the latest Fall release .  Heather designed all of these amazing products (she’s a clever cookie that girl 🙂

I used the Snow Caps die collection on both cards and a combination of images from Polar Pals and Snow Much Fun.  These sets all go together so beautifully and give so many different options.  I die cut all my elements and added colour to the mountains, sea and sky using distress inks.  The rest of the colouring was done with Copics.  As a finishing touch I added some Stickles to the snow hills – you know Christmas is coming when the Stickles comes out to play!!

Thanks for stopping by today xxx


The holidays are coming….

Ok – it’s still August but for a papercrafter that means it’s time to start thinking about the upcoming festive holidays such as Halloween and Christmas.  I have to admit that this last three months of the year is my MOST favourite season – I love the Autumn, Halloween, 3 of my children (and myself) have birthdays and then IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!  It’s a wonderful time of year in our house.  So in the spirit of the festive season (soon) I have a dainty little Christmas card to share!!


Today also sees the start of a new challenge today over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog and this week theme is everyone’s favourite… ANYTHING GOES!  The design team are featuring products from Memory Box but you don’t have to to enter.

Anything Goes Memory Box

Lately I’ve seen Debby Hughes making lots of cards in a smaller scale (4 bar size) which really appeals to me and is perfect for this little deer die.  I’ve used the Mini Stardust Stencil with some gorgeous silver-glitter sparkle medium with the Leaping Deer die both from Memory Box.  I covered the die cut deer in Versamark and then embossed him in silver fine embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Pretty Poinsettia from Clearly Besotted and is also embossed in silver.


Please pop along to the blog and check out the rest of the design teams fabulous creations and hope you can join in the fun and play along.  As always, one lucky randomly drawn entry will receive a $50 store credit – woo hoo!!  With STAMPtember just a few days away you’re going to want to get that prize for sure!!!




Photography hell!!

A quick post to share one of the cards for Christmas.  I actually wasn’t going to post it because it caused me no end of grief trying to get a photograph of it!!  I used the Winter Wonderland set from Mama Elephant (after seeing on Taheerah’s blog – hence why this card HAD to go and live with her!!).  This photo is awful but believe me, it was the best I could get!  It looks much prettier in real life!

I actually decided I would share it as the Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Blog is “Ice Inspiration” and this fits the bill nicely!!  Just ignore the horrendous photography skills!!
