And another....

Ho hum.

Another quick post, with another card, before I dash off to go and do some more ATCs....

Basically, this card is made using:

Third Coast Rubber Stamp (Mask)
Happy Birthday rubber stamp
Hero Arts swirls background rubber stamp.
A6 Card blank
black card
white card
silver mirri card
Opalite ink
blue dye ink
Twinkling H20s
silver EP
Holographic EP
holographic peeloffs
Textile Cuttlebug Embossing folder.
Red Stickles

I was going to tell you how it was all made - aside from the fact that I rubbed the opalite ink over the embossed black card, I think you can pretty much suss out what I did. If I was to explain it all, it'd take forever.... Gee - didn't realise I used so much stuff!

More creations....

Ok, just a sneaky before I head off to Badminton!

I made this card at the beginning of the month for a birthday on Aunty's Forum - we have a Birthday List, and everyone on it sends cards to whoever's birthday it is. It's always a surprise, too, cos some folks include a little prezzie too!

This one is 3D decoupage, quite simple, and reasonably quick too.

Base card is a soft pastel green, with cream coloured card embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder, onto which I've layered dark green card and then the 3D image. Add a prima with an antiqued brad, et voila!

Loads of stuff!!!!

Yes - it's been a while since I was last on here blogging, but I've been a bit busy. Yes, I've been crafting. But I've also been watching the European Ice Skating Championships - and Britain has won Bronze in the Ice Dance! WOOHOOO!!! About bloomin' time too. Last time we won anything was Torvill & Dean in 1994.....

Anyway, onto the Craft stuff!

Today is Rudolph Day - which means I have to show the cards I've made. And here they are:

We get extra points for cards with Snow on them, and all four of mine have! I've recycled my old Xmas cards, used both dry and heat embossing - cuttlebug folders, I love you....

I've also been in an inchie swap on UK Stampers, as well as an ATC swap there. The theme for the inchies was "Lets Celebrate"...

and the theme for the ATCs was "Metal" - they basically had to have some metal on them somewhere. As I'm in the throws of another ATC swap on Aunty's where the theme is "Thank You for the Music", I kind of rolled with it on this occasion - my fave music tends to be rock and heavy metal, hence the music notes embossed on metal sheet. Which in this case happens to be a Tomato Puree tube opened out (and washed thoroughly, too). Paper was 7gypsies, stamps are Paper Artsy and Studio G.... inks are all Ranger - either Alcohol (on the metal) or Distress.

Anyways - gotta run! More tomorrow..... maybe. I have badminton tomorrow night, so more blogging may have to wait until Tuesday!

It's 2009!

Well - figured I'd better come on here and at least wish everyone a very happy New Year!

Did Santa bring you everything you wanted? Or did you get loads of things you could have lived without? I did quite well myself - more on that another time!

Catch you around.......
