Merry Christmas

Good Morning Lovelies! So! Are you ready for Christmas yet? I've been ready for some time, but keep getting unexpected and unplanned Christmas cards lol! So had to make a few more, love Christmas!

My first card is Hubby's, Brushos background, then Penny Black background stamp, I used Distress markers to stamp it in different colours, the image is Sweet Poppy Stencil, I used glossy black paste and golds and bronze glitters, finished off with a die from Penny Black cut in brown card stock.

Penny Black stamps and die.

Distress paints background Penny black holly background and Memory box die.


Black card embossed with Tim Holtz EF, gold gilding wax, then using TH spritzer with pro markers.

A few Christmas cards

Good afternoon Lovelies, I do hope my crafty friends are all managing to stay warm and safe? We have been very lucky here on the South East coast so far, it's cold and a bit windy but it's sunny and dry :)

Although I finished my Christmas cards a while ago I needed to make a few more.






I hope you like them? Have a great day xx Zoe xx

Handprint Reindeer

Good morning Lovelies, I say "Good" but it's persisting it down out there :( oh I hate rain, so to cheer myself up I made a cute card for my little Foster baby boys Mummy.

I can't believe he's 7 weeks old already, we brought him home from hospital at 1 day old, such a gorgeous little chunk, 9lb 7 at birth last weigh in he was 12lb 7 lol bless him.

So here's my card, I used Distress paints just dabbed onto craft mat and smooshed hand in it.

I hope you like it, I thought it was pretty cute, have a great day and keep warm xx Zoe xx

Zoe - Challenge #12 - December "Add some flowers"

Good morning Lovelies, Wow it's December, can you believe it? I hope your all on your way to being prepared for the festivities? I'm just about done, although I'm not as prepared as I usually am, mind you, I've a baby to care for which makes it harder.

So here we are it launch time for Lavinia Stamps Challenge and a lovely easy one this month "Add Some Flowers" please be mindful of the rules and use only Lavinia Stamps and or Products. As usual there is an amazingly generous prize of £40 to spend online in Lavinia Stamps shop.

So here are my samples, I've flown with this theme somewhat lol, love flowers.

My first I've used the wonderful brand new Celtic Dreams dies, I coloured some white card stock with Silks Acrylics and punched out some flowers, I used the same set to create my background, masking off a sun, then cutting the Pegasus with black card, I created an aperture and mounted on foam pads and stuck the design flat, just to create dimension, these dies are superb, they are large and very different to anything else out there, I might add, they cut like a hot knife through butter too, no poking out bits with a pokey tool, just all falls out beautifully.

Brusho's background on my second card.



My last card I embossed the Zen flowers with white EP and created a resist for the distress inks.

Thank you so much for visiting today, I do hope you like my samples and feel inspired to join in, have a great day xx Zoe xx
