For this project I used one of the Sweet pea stamps by Caron Vinson.  I coloured with copics and spica pens.  I used a silver metalic pen to create the border around the image and distressed the background with several liquid chalks.  I then spray white and gold smooch spritz ink.

I used some left over scraps for the backing mat and some silver mirri cardstock.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut several borders and make a frame around the image.  I added ribbon to complete the frame.

I embellished with a petaloo flower, bow, and some paper flowers from Wildorchid.  I added a gem embellishment to the ribbon.

For this project I used a LOTV  stamp and coloured with copics and prisma pencils.

I embossed the backing mat with a Marianne folder and distressed using some liquid chalk.  I added stickles glitter to some of the elements.

I used the following dies
  • Magnolia doily flower
  • Magnolia holly
  • Magnolia foliage
I completed with adding someflowers, pearls and gem embellishments.


For this project I used another of the LOTV stamps from their Christmas range and coloured with copics.  I used a fine liner to create the border around the image.

The backing papers were from Crafters Companion and I used a Nellies die to cut the sentiment and Marianne dies to cut flourishes and snowflakes.

I embellishment with ribbon and bow and some gems from Quitoxic Paperie.

Best wishes hope you enjoy

For this project I used one of my new stamps from LOTV and coloured with copics.

I used a Marianne embossing folder to create the backing mat and a Nellies die for sentiment embellishment.  (The sentiment stamp was also from LOTV). 

I used liquid chalks to distress background and added some stickles glitter glue to the embossed holly leaves.

The red mirri cardstock was from Create and Craft.

I embellished with ribbon and bow, beads and pins.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, best wishes,
