AUTUMNAL EASEL CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Another weekend is upon us, and I do hope you are all having a good weekend.
My card today was made to enter the Frilly and Funkie challenge.
I thought I would go with Autumn colours again.
So here is what I came up with.
I hope you like it.



This caard is 8" in dimensions.
I started by cutting out an 7" circle card from a 8" square white card.
Then I cut out the same sizes in black card, and covered the white card so I hade a black base easel card.
I then used my Martha Stewart circle punch Floral Web design at the measurements of 8" and covered the bottom of the card and the front of the easel.
I cut a 6" one out of black card also
I used Phil Martin's Old Gold gilding wax on the edges.
I used the gilding wax, and some gold stickles on some leaves I had, and added them to the edge.
Finally I die cut some circles, and added a sentiment to the middle.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate every one.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

NEWS PRINT FLOWER TAG


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I am back today with a tag I made to join in the Allsorts Challenge.
I also used some snippets of crochet lace, and my news print flower is from snippets also.

Miss Di is away this week, and the lovely Jane is standing in for her.
So thank you very much for helping Miss Di out this week Jane.


This tag is 6"x4" in size.
I started out with a cream tag I made, and then inked it with Rusty Hinge DI, I also used this on the flower,and my doily.
I added Phil Martins Old Gold Gilding wax to the edges, and the edges of my doily and flower also.
On the bottom layer I used a mask and Phil Martins Chic Pumpkin sparkle texture paste.
I added my snippet of cotton crochet lace.
I inked my seam binding ribbon with RH/DI as well to give it the colour I wanted.
Finally I added a cabochon to the bow which I used gilding wax on too.

RUDOLF CHALLENGE SEPTEMBER 2016 ...........GUEST DESIGNER CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Today starts another Rudolf Challenge over at
This month I am one of the Guest Designers for this wonderful challenge.
As usual it is anything goes as long as it's a Christmas Creation.
Please pop over to Scappymo's blog to see the lovey and wonderful designs my other GD have created.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
So here is my GD creation.





This is a 8"x7" tent style card.
The red spotted paper came with the Hunkydory Large Christmas Decoupage kit.
The musical paper is from a DCWV
Butterfly Garden paper pad. 
I inked the edges with Fired Brick DI.
I used part of the Choir boys decoupage from the kit, and dcoupaged them.
Then I made tag to go into the pocket I had created with the musical paper.
Lastly I made a poinsettia from Sizzex's Susan's Garden Poinsettia Die coloured it in with FBDI and Pine Needles DI for the leaves.
I then used some Gold Stickles in the centre of the leaves, and added some other die cut leaves to make up an arrangement.

Thank you so much for your visit, and I do hope you can join us with this super challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

SHARING MY OLDIE FOR FRIDAY / TODAY


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Well I know it's Saturday, but I need to share and Oldie for Friday with 
ERIKA HERE 
This is all just for fun, but a great way to show some of your older creations.
So here is mine for this week a Christmas card I made a few years ago. 


This is a 5"x5" size card.
I came up with the idea to make a Christmas tree with Christmas papers out of a sort of Tea Bag design.
Used a Special Mask embossed, but used the de-bossed side as I thought it looked like a Christmas design.
Added a few samll buttons to the tree.
Ran a red Pro-Marker round the edges of the card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I get really chuffed that you like what I have created.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

WHITE ON WHITE TAG CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit.

Today I have a white on white tag card for the current 
Butterfly Challenge.



This is 6"x4" in size.
I glued some lovely leafy cut outs cut from a Spellbinders die that a blog friend sent me ages ago.
Then I glued and glittered them.
Also found this gorgeous butterfly die cut that another blog friend sent me also some time ago, and I drew around it with a pencil on white snippet card and cut it out with scissors to back the butterfly.
Then I sprayed that with glue and glittered that too.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
