First Tomic challenge entry

Today I decided to be brave and enter the TOMIC Challenge for the first time.  I love Magnolia stamps but lack talent, lol.

This weeks challenge over at TOMIC is

TOMIC #26 ~ Vintage and Lace

The vintage style is very popular, and it is simply to make your card or project look old. You can often find distressed & inked edges, laces, roses, note papers etc. on a vintage project. So let's do it vintage ...

This is my entry.
I was making a custom card for a jewellery customer in France and as luck would have it, it fitted the challenge.

I used
Brotherly Love
Mistletoe stamp 
Mistletoe die
Heart swirl branch die

Coloured with Copics

Wild Orchid Crafts

Snowman collection
Magnolia sweet  Flurry blue

Distressed edges inked with Walnut stain

Lace, pearls, card stock from my own collection

Nesties & Sizzix dies

Computer generated sentiment

Hope you like it

Penny Black challenge: 176

This weeks challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is

We're less than 8 weeks til the big day so we thought we'd help you out with a month of Christmas challenges featuring a different theme each week. First up....

Christmas, Snowflakes & Silver
Well how "cool" is that.  I am well under way with making my Christmas cards so this was a breeze.

I decided to go for an Easel card, as Fashionably Wrapped is quite a large image.

I love this stamp, as it is great for use all year round.  I made a 30th Birthday card recently and put a circle with the number inside where the holly is :)

Card recipe
Image: PB fashionably wrapped
Medium: Copics
Paper: Snowflakes from "the Snowman" pack
I double matted it using Mirri card, and dark silver card.

Sentiment label, and swirl: Magnolia
Snowflake from my jewellery bits
Lots of stickles :)

Hope you like it.
I was thrilled with all the comments left last week.

Thank you

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge 102: Monochrome

This weeks challenge over at Kraftin Kimmies Challenge is
Make it Monochromatic
This week our hostess is the Dazzling Donna and she's challenged us to make a Monochromatic Card!!  So create something with one main can use any neutrals and other colours in small amounts, but make one colour the main focus of your design!! 
Well I am nuts about browns at the moment so chose that.  there are a few hints at other colours I'm afraid.  But I think I did well to stick to the rules.

I used Perfect Poison who is one of my favourites, and created a magical Christmas card.

Medium: copics
Papers: Unknown
Flowers: Magnolia
Swirl Magnolia
Sentiment: magazine freebie

Hope you like her
