It's Ribbons for this weeks theme over at Anything Goes and wow it's week 20!!!!

Week 20 already over at Anything Goes can you believe it!!!!

This week the theme is "Ribbons" so it's easy as we all have far too much ribbon but like me we need it!!!!!

For my card I have used a beautiful purple 12 x 12 card cut down to 6 x 6 and I must say it's just gorgeous and metallic as well, to complement it I have used the new Bo-Bunny "Winter Joy" papers and a matching green dotty swiss all can be found on the Craft Den Web site or you can just give Lynne a ring!

You can see from the picture above that I have made a gate fold but left a space in between so that you can see the design through it, down the edges I have punched holes where I have added my ribbons the green ribbon is beautiful and says "hugs and Kisses" it from Paper Artsy which can be found at the Craft Den along with a lovely purple ribbon to match the papers!

I have also punched a border and added more ribbon from Bo-Bunny behind the image the punch is "Arch" from EK Success found here.

This beautiful Poinsettia is a die which cuts and embosses from Marianne also found at the Craft Den! I must say that it took me a few goes to get the technique right but it's so worth it, just love the finished design.

Finally my Tilda and yes I'm back to my copic's just love the intense colour just goes perfect with the papers. We are all waiting with anticipation for the new delivery at the Craft Den of the new Christmas magnolia stamps it's becoming an obsession and for someone who never liked them well what can I say if you can bet them join them I say!!!! lol

Christmas has come early over at Anything Goes this week "19"

Bit of a cheat really but I wanted to finish it off and thought it was perfect for this weeks challenge over at Anything Goes with "Christmas has come early"

It's the project from last weeks class at the Craft Den!!!

We folded a 12 x 12 sheet of paper into squares then triangles so that we ended up with this folded square!!! When I got home I found out another sheet of the same paper so that I had three in total stuck them all together and I have this fab folding card/book!!! even my DH was impressed!

I have added some beautiful snow flake paper from the First Snow paper pack from Pepper's Christmas party new in at Lynne's and you should see the decoupage that goes with it!!! Cut out my images on my oval nestie and used my distress inks to colour and a little stamp and stickles to add detail to the edges.

Mistletoe & silent night Tilda's also available from Lynne's ever growing range of Magnolias. On the silent night I have used some puff pain on the fur edges and then just added some glamour dust it looks perfect for snow & fur!!!

The middle on is a sentiment that I thought looked perfect with the papers some border strips that I inked with the DI's and added some gems to. A few snowflakes and I think it's perfect!!!

Princess and the Frog!!

When I was a child I used to collect all of these fairytale books and now I get craft with all the beautiful images how cool is that!!!

This was a card I made for my niece Sam I coloured the image with my copics and cut her out with my scalloped circle nestie.

The papers are Prima and are just fabulous and also available at the Craft Den along with all these beautiful Magnolias and the best thing is that Lynne is ordering the old magnolias as well as the new which is just fabby! Just added a sentiment a little bow and stickles as the papers are so beautiful nothing much was needed.

Had a busy weekend cleaning, ironing and crafting as well as having my little Summer over for the night!!!

Been trying to get ahead with my dt work.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend.

Just a quick post today!!

This was a card I made for Crafty Niece Kerry for her birthday!! She is addicted to Magnolias with a passion so thought this little gem would be perfect!!

I used a stripes Bo-Bunny paper from the Persuasion collection and a matching double dot bazzil which I have distressed the edges and inked. I coloured my image with my lovely little copic's and added some glamour dust. To finish off I added some yummy flowers and the foliage was done with my MS branch punch finally the finishing touch a sentiment!!!
