Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to make a Winter Wonderland creation.
Now I've been wanting to try a technique for a while of cutting a word in the same paper as a scene and layering it exactly over the scene. I expect that sounds as clear as mud lol!
Anyway here is what I did:
The snowy scene was changed to black and white on my computer and printed twice in the same size. I used Winter Woodland Cricut cart to cut the word winter (at 2 1/2")from one of the snowy scenes and the other was used as the background. Also I cut the word in shadow in silver mirri layered and added in the exact place over the scene. Does it make sense now lol I'm not very good at explaining! Winter has been cuttled with CB snowflakes folder. I cut wnderland from the same cart at 1 1/2". Deer 1 and 2 are cut from Christmas Solutions cart @ 2 1/2" and 3" as well as the harnesses in silver mirri and some tiny red crystals added. I cut a piece from the scene and cuttled with another snowflake cb folder and added so the first deer didn't look like he was floating!
My scene is then mounted on to a silver mirri card which I gave a spine too and embossed the spine with 5x7 cb folder which is from Oh My Crafts exclusive Christmas bundle. Finally some white devoray ribbon added to the spine.
This card looks so much better in real life, mirri is so hard to photgraph!!
Pop over and join us in the challenge this week we'd love to see your creations!
Thanks for looking and have a lovely week everyone!

My friend Stacey loves everything cupcake so I made her this cupcake card with her name on for her Birthday which was yesterday.
I made the card using Cricut design Studio by welding 2 cupcakes from Doodlecharms cart together for the card base and the letters are welded from Don Juan cart. The layers are then added with pop dots for dimension and for the papers I used Pink Petticoat Lola's Boudoir download. The cupcake topping has been cuttled with Divine Swirls CB folder. I then added pearls and rub ons from my stash.
Thanks for looking!
Hope you had a fabulous Birthday Stacey!

Well it hasn't stopped raining here all week but at least we have been spared the awful floods that have been happening in the UK. My heart goes out to all those people whose homes have been flooded.
It seems ages since I have blogged I think my mojo is a bit tired lately lol, as well as trying to get the Christmas shopping done and helping Connor revise and get ready for his mock GCSE's it's a busy time!
Anyway I do have a card for today and it's made with an image from the new Lily-Boo Gingerbreads collection which has just been released over at Lily-Boos. A fab collection of 6 cute Gingerbreads for £1.99
I chose the little girl ginger so of course I could use pink!! She is lightly coloured with chalks and her present is coloured with promarkers. I added some glossy accents but they don't show well in the photo. The papers are Papermania Rose Tinted Christmas Stack and the sentiment is computer generated
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Here is my card for the Cuttlebugspot challenge this week which is a Turkey creation for Thanksgiving! I am also entering this card into the Get Funky challenge which this month is Autumn as I used some fab papers from Funky Seasons CD.
The image on my card was a free download from this fabulous blog I found called 2 Twisted Sisters.
My l'il turkey thinks he is too cute to cook what do you think?!
I made him into a shaped card on my computer and printed extra layers to layer him up, then handcut and cuttled him with 5x7 Chequered CB folder from the Oh my Crafts shape set, Divine Swirls, Tiny Bubbles and Swiss Dots. The backing paper is from Funky Seasons CD Autumn and the sentiment is computer generated.
Nilda DT co-ordinater over at the Cuttlebugspot has flu at the moment so the challenge will be late being posted this week but keep checking back to see all the fabby Turkey creations and we'd love to see yours too! Hope you feel better soon Nilda
Thanks for popping by and have a great week!

Good morning everyone
Well winter is upon us in Wales there was ice on the cars early this morning when I was seeing Connor off to school. Time to break out the scarf and gloves I think! Hope everyone is keeping warm :)
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to make a card using fruits. I decided to use a melon and using a fab download from Pink Petticoat here is my card.
All papers are Pink Petticoat download. The card is 6x6" and the scalloped mat is one of my new Nellie's dies which I love as it matches the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch which I used for the middle strip so well. The white panel in the centre has been cuttled with a stripey CB embossiing folder which I just got and is part of the shapes folders set which is exclusive to 'Oh My Crafts'. I cut the melon 3 times, pop dotted it twice then for the 3rd layer I just cut out the edge of the melon and cuttled again with the same folder, I used my Sakura clear glaze pen to glaze the seeds of the melon and added some pink ribbon from Hobbycraft. The sentimet is computer generated font is Curlz mt.
Thanks as always for taking a peek and be sure to visit the Cuttlebugspot and check out the DT's fabulous creations and why not join us for a chance to win a £15 voucher from the Craftbarn!
Have a great week!

Here is my DT card for the Cuttlebugspot this week, Nilda asked us to make Thanksgiving creations this week and this was a first for me!
I gave my card a vintage theme with a cute little vintage Thanksgiving postcard,
The card is 6x6" and the papers are from Costco. The buttons and string are all from my stash and I used the CB pumpkin embossing folder and the embossing at the bottom of the card is one of the new 5x7" CB folders 'Holly Ribbons'. These folders are great for embossing on larger cards I hope Provcraft will do more of this size in future.
Don't forget to pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and check out the beautiful creations the DT have made, we would love you to join in and there is a prize for the winner too!
It seems like I've been away forever! After three weeks of flu, then my internet breaking down for a week I'm back!
I hope everyone is fine and that you all had a great Halloween. We had so many Trick or Treaters this year, good job I got plenty of chocolate in to give them!
After getting my internet fixed I'm slowly catching up with all your wonderful creations you've all been making, I've really missed being able to bloghop!
Over at Lily-Bootoo Sam and Lou set us a challenge to make a card using purple and a Lily-Boo image. I chose the presents from the Christmas Corners image set which I printed on to the back of purple pearlescent card. I changed the outline of the image to purple with my computer software and cloured with a lavender Promarker, adding diamond dust glitter and tons of gems. All the dots are done by hand with a white Signo pen and lavender Promarker and I cut around the presents. Sentiment is computer generated, font Castellar and LD Elegance.
I hope you can join us this month, we would love to see your purple creations and you can use any image you want.
Bye for now
