Nothing Warms You Up Like a Cup Of Tea and Friends

Its "Anything Goes" At Simon Says Wednesday Weekly Challenge this week. Perfect place to put the only non Christmas project that I've worked on lately. This idea was just to cute not to try.

I've used a teacup template that you can find here at Paperlicious Designs and a Stampavie stamp that I've had for a while but never inked, it was the perfect size to add to this cup. I've tried to decorate the cup as detailed and delicately as a real china cup and really like the way this turned out.

If you want more inspiration check out Sandra's scrap blog as she came up with a wonderful design as well.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-November "Sparklers"

Today I have a card to post for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for November with the theme "sparklers". Try as I might I could not get my camera to actually pick up the sparkle on this one, but the tree, snow and bells are all glittered up and sparkly in real life.

As the image was so large on this one I've kept it really simple. It will also be a lot easier to send in the post this way. I have to remember to do a few more this way! He he its hard though.

That's it for today, Hope everyone has a great week.

Vintage Tilda on 3D Star

Today I thought I'd show you a DT prodject I did this weekend for Tara at Forget Me Not Scrapbooking to show off Vintage Tilda.It's also my entry for this weeks MDUC Challenge #223 Jinglebells and this weeks Simply Magnolia Challenge-Over the Edge. I've been waiting to try one of these 3 D Stars for a while and thought since all I seem to do for the store is cards that this would be a nice change. So I searched around the net to find a template and found one at Sandra's Scrap Shop, but I did not have Paypal so I found one here 3D Star Template. There's also rumours that it might be in the Christmas issue of Magnolia Ink, but as I havn't got mine yet I'm not sure.

I printed two templates, shaped them both and glued them back to back so that the star is truly 3D. Then I've added Patterned paper cut just a little bit smaller to decorate the star.

I've used a doilly die cut glued to the middle of the star as a base to attach my sentiment and Tilda to.

Then I went a little crazy with the embellishments. Some Fabric Stars from a star ribbon, jingle bells, DooHickey Poinsettias, Swirls, string pearl sprays, ribbon and leaves.Oh I almost forgot I've added paper glaze to the bobble ornament, too.

I've inked the edges of the star with distress ink and added Stickles here and there to add some shine.

Thanks for popping by make sure you check out the amazing creations that both design teams made as well as the other entries.

Paper take Weekly November 5/13-Anything Goes Sponsored By LOTV

Thought I'd share a card today that I made for the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Anything Goes" and since the sponsor this week is LOTV its only fitting that I would use one of their stamps to create the card.

I've used a Freebie template from Sandra's Scrap Sels she also has an amazing shop so you can purchase many more amazing card Templates.

I love this image its cute and it colours up super fast. I've kept it pretty simple so that it will be easy to mail. Just some BoBunny snow fall paper, simple circles, a DooHickey swirl Die, ribbon and some Martha Stewart punch snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Meet Rowen The Beautiful Winter Fairy

For this card I chose the cutest little winter fairy stamp you could possibly find. Its Rowen from Wee Stamps for whimsey stamps paired with a Sentiment from Whimsey's Sentiment collection called Holiday Cheer. Both images were perfect for this card. I had so much fun colouring this up and putting it together. This is truly a multi-purpose card it is my DT Card for Forget Me Not Scrapbooking this month.

It also fits in with the following Challenges:

*Christmas Card Challenges-Challenge#49 Dimension

*CCT-Challenge #293-Sparkles

*Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes

*Magnolia-licious-tuesday Challenge Anything Goes

Here is a close up view to show the dimension as I've fussy cut around Rowen and popped her up as will as used some Spellbinders layered Poinsettias.

Another view of the sentiment. It is my favorite from this set.

One last view after I added three more tiny snowflakes to add a touch of white mixed in with the flowers to brighten up this corner.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the DT blogs to check ou all their hard work and inspiration!
