Christmas Decor

I had a great fun day yesterday, visiting the sales in town and browsing for a bit, it was chock-a though!!
Anyway, I had some lovely new Icicle lights in my kitchen this Christmas holidays and I thought they looked a little bare, so I decided to decorate them up a little, SU! styley ;-)
OK, I agree, not the easiest pic to see so here are some closer pics for you, you should be able to click on them for a closer look, they spell out "Merry Christmas" ;-)
So, to make I used the 1+3/4" circle punch and the NEW much larger (can't remember the exact measurement but I will check and add it later!) Scallop Circle punch to go around it! This fab punch is in the new mini catalogue, starting the 4th January, message me if you would like a copy of the mini for just £1 inc. postage!
Letters are from the on board chipboard, inked and finished with lashings of Crystal Effects for the shine!
Colours are Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party
Serene Snowflakes were stamped on the card scallops with Paper stack paper used for the circles, all tied on to the icicles with (retired) silver cord,
Well, I hope you like today's decor item(s), I will be back with more decorations for you tomorrow,
Have a fab day :-D

3d trees

I promised I would be back today ;-)
So, I do have the last (I think) of the Christmas Cards to show you, I made some more 3d mini trees with the Pennant Punch, this is such a great little punch!
I used the rectangle embossing folder to frame the tree with Holly Berry Speciality DSP
the cute banner is from the Petal Cone Die
and I used 3 designs of paper for the trees ;-)
and finally a snowflake inside to finish, 
Thanks for visiting today :-)

Button Snowman

Hello lovely blog readers!
I hope you all had the most wonderful Christmas?! I apologise for being a bit absent this last few days but I am sure you were all doing just what we were and spending some quality time together with our nearest and dearest and haven't been blog hopping too much? Anyway, I am hoping to find some time to get in my craft room in the next few days to have a play with my new goodies from the upcoming SPRING MINI CATALOGUE ;-)
Anyway, I do have a few last Christmas cards to share with you so here is the first of them made with the wonderful Button Buddies,(class coming very soon)...
The brilliant Oval Embossing folder, the XL Oval punch fits perfectly inside,sentiment is from Petit Pairs,
and some more Serene Snowflakes on the pool party base card,
OK, short and sweet from me today but I promise I will be back tomorrow
Merry Christmas all,

Top Note Christmas Card

Hello there,
I have another little Christmas card to share today, as the title suggests I used the brilliant Top Note Die to make these ones (7, I think it was) nice and quick,
Cherry Cobbler base in a z fold style
with the Jolly Jingles wheel used along one side of the Top Note and the cute Christmas trees are from Polar Party
and look at the gorgeous glitter paper! But I'm afraid you will have to wait 'till the 4th January to find out much more...
and finally a better view of the z fold
Well, that's all from me today,
I have sooo much Christmassy stuff to share with you so I will be back very soon
Thanks for visiting me today!

Last minute Christmas Cards

I hope you are all well? I expect you are all as crazy busy as I am right now, last minute shopping, cleaning etc!
So I have another Christmas card for you today and not too much chatter!
This one uses some of the gorgeous laser cut shapes from the Flirtatious Speciality designer papers,
the fronts are Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie but the reverse of both is plain white, perfect! So I inked parts up with a sponge dauber in Pool Party to make a very pretty snowflake, in the centre is a die cut "button" made with the SU! embosslit
the background was decorated using SereneSsnowflakes (again ;-)) in Crumb Cake
and here they are all together, sentiment is Curly Cute. I do love this colour combo, very sophisticated ;-)
OK, back tomorrow with a bit of luck with some more Crimbo cards!

Hello there,
I hope your Christmas preparations are coming along nicely, I spent a lot of time in my craft room yesterday decorating some of the gifts I have made to give but more of those another day as I finished very late last might and so haven't photographed them yet ;-)
So, today I have a couple of different cards made using the lovely Polar party stamp set, love this cute set :-)
First is made in the Island Indigo colourway with a Sahara Sand topper
Cute lil' penguin framed with the Textured Impressions embossing frames set from page 124 and the oval fits the XL Oval punched shape in too ;-)
Inside is decorated too, I have used Serene snowflakes sooo much this Christmas!
and I also made some in Pool Party too, same design, different ribbon
and different penguin from the same set,
and also finished inside too
O.K. That's it for today, I promise to take plenty of pictures of today's creations and I will be back to share with you very soon,
Have a great day,

Button Tree

I am back, two days in a row! Get me!! lol!
So, I have another Christmas card as promised today with a colour combo of Crumb Cake and Wild Wasabi with the Jolly Jingles wheel and Versamark to make the background
I used some some of my buttons from my stash to make the tree with oodles of gold glass glitter filling in the gaps with the help of some crystal effects,
Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (page 116) was used to make the trunk
 with scalloped dotty ribbon decorating the side with tiny tags too,
and some more roller inside to finish,
well, that's today's Christmas card for you, back tomorrow with some Christmas gift boxes
Stampin' Hugs for today,
