Vase of Flowers

I though I would try a vase of flowers for a change.
Unfortunately the colours in the flowers didn't come out as much in the photo.

Items Used:
Joy Crafts Dies and Stamps- Flower 2 pc
Sue Wilson - Pine Twig
Metal Die - Stitched Tag
Impression Obsession - Greeting Set
Marianne Design - Butterfly 3

You may do better with the vase shape, nothing to help with it.
The top (flowers) slips out of the vase (doubled card stock) with card to write your greeting on.

Thank you for visiting.

The Gingerbread Mansion

This was our amazing Gingerbread Mansion designed and made by our 
14 year old grandson and his mum.

They had toffee for the windows and tea light candles inside for lights on. 
Verandahs, Awnings, open front door, snow dripping down and the beautiful 
Bay Window shape in the front.
I wouldn't mind a house like it.

They did an amazing job of it.  

Below is a different angle.

I do hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas as much as we did.
All the best of Health, Happiness and Safety for 2018.

God Bless,  Crafty Hugs, Carol x

Bird Crazy Birthday

I do love the Bird Crazy Stamps from Tim Holtz.
This card was for our 11 year old grandson who looks great in a 
hat so I couldn't resist making this slider card.

Background: Darkroom Splatter
Memory Box - Woodland Branch
Poppy Stamps - Freida Leaf (cut up)

Taylored Expressions - Make a wish balloons
Avery Elle - Count on me

Birthday Rose

This card was so simple but affective I thought.

The Rose is a Marianne Creatables Die - Rose
Sorry I don't have a name for the background dies.

14th Birthday

Three grandsons turned 14 this year, this is the third.

Items Used:
I did a retiform background.
Shoes : Spellbinders In'Spire - Sneaks 
Elizabeth Crafts Designs - Numbers and more 1
Frantic Stamper - Nested Plain Dies  
In order to get the thin star, I used the die as a guide to scissor cut around the outside 
of the star after cutting the star out.
