Christmas Cards...

Wow, I've really outdone myself with that title haven't I??

Yup i'm back again, so much to share with you, seeing as i have been so very slack with the blog posts lately.

Last night wasreveal night over at the Scraptherapy Forum.  I made some Christmas Cards this week and i'd love to share them with you:
In the last week or so there has been some awesome new products arrive in store. Some of these have been some great new Sizzix Tim Holtz Dies. I have used a few of these to make my christmas cards this week.

The new Tattered Poinsettia is so easy to use, and I think will quickly become a favourite of mine. To make the one on my card this what what I did: I die cut the pieces twice out of manilla coloured cardstock and inked them with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Once the ink was dry I gave them a quick swipe with Picket Fence Distress Stain to soften the colours a little and give them some texture.

I then layered and arranged them on top of each other until I was happy with how they looked. I used both doubled sided tape, and a few pieces foam tape to stick them.

The last step was to mist them lightly with Perfect Pearls in Heirloom Gold.

I added a little bit of subtle sparkle by adding a little Rock Candy Dry Glitter.

 Then just added it to my card and embellished it. For my card base I've actually used a district market card..

Here are the Products Used:
Tattered Poinsettia Die
Mini Cardinal and Mini Poinsettia Die
Vintage Lace Die
Mini Snowflake Die
Peeled Paint Ink
Vintage Photo Ink
Picket Fence Distress Stain
Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold

A Special Tag

I can't beleive it's been so long since i posted.. Life sure does have a habbit of getting in the way of being creative at times..

I wanted to share with you today two things.. well it started astwo, but ended up as one..

This is  a special tag that i made for a birthday gift. This tag had a mind of it's own and just seemed to flow and fit together so well - Don't you love it when that happens??

I have used a bucket load of Tim Holtz goodness on this... But does that really surprise you?

It started off as a two seperate pieces..
a tag:
 and a pocket watch:
Then they just sort of fell together and  this was what happened:
I was so happy with how it tured out, and think I may have to make another one to hang up in my creative space.
I hope you are having a wonderful day, and enjoyed your visit, thank you so much for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.
