Snowflake Card Using Fiskerettes Prize

Hello again!

Two posts in such a short space of time - a first for me! 

I was very fortunate to win a Fiskers Snowflake punch from a competition on the Fiskarettes Facebook page. I like their Facebook page as it gives inspiration and ideas on how to use their products and general tutorials which are very useful. 

As soon as I got the punch my two sons were punching out snowflakes galore! When they were safely in bed I created the card below which has a snowflake theme - printed, embossed, coated wooden and the addition of the punched metallic snowflakes.

I used organza ribbon to form a double bow and added a wooden snowflake to the middle of it. A metallic marker and a covering of silver glitter glue transformed the wooden snowflake.  You can see it better in the photo below:

Thank you for looking and any comments you care to leave are much appreciated.

Merry Kissmas!

Happy Friday!

Today, I'd like to share a quirky card I made for a husband - not mine though! Thought I'd go a little cheeky and use 'Merry Kissmas' so based the rest of my card around that. 

I used lips and holly rub ons from my stash on the sentiment. I added red mirri card and lime green glitter card as backing onto holly paper.

Finally, I added a cute penguin holding a sprig of mistletoe which I thought was quite apt!  A couple of baubles, glitter glue, card candi and foil tape to embellish. 

Thank you for looking and any comments are much appreciated.

Christmas Wishes A4 Card


I can't believe it's only another 2 days before the school holidays start for my boys! I've got so many gifts and cards still to make......

So, without further ado - an A4 Christmas card using the Trimcraft First Edition Christmas Wishes pad. I do love this pad and it's had a lot of use! The colours, glitter and prints all appeal to me. 

I used the paper to highlight the 25th by making a shaker frame that I coloured with a silver marker then added glitter glue. I added small sequins to it (below).

I covered wooden snowflakes in red glitter to add some more bling together with a topper from my stash. The sentiment is an old Craftwork cards one (as seen below).

Thank you for looking and any comments  are much appreciated.
