October Sketch




This months challenge over at Seven Hills Crafts is a sketch one

You can twist it, flip it, change the shapes to suit - as long as we can see the general starting point for your inspiration was our sketch

I found myself doing all of the above :)
The star shape led me to think of Christmas and that led on to using my favourite wreath layering stamp by W9 and I blinged it up a bit by adding some wink of stella to the holly leaves - which is an unknown stamp ..read that as I have forgotten! and the black blobs are in RL gold glittery stickles.

Adding it all to a stitched mat that I think is the Mama elephants one and then popped iton to red shimmer card stock. 

Thank you for taking the time to look

Cupcake inspirations



This month over at {Cupcake Inspirations } they have a colour challenge going on and when I saw it I just couldn't help thinking about making a Christmas Card ...cant seem to stop making them just now! and these colours lend themselves so perfectly for this type of Christmas card





In RL my sky on the card is a darker shade of navy but whenever I highlight the card to see the silver embossed stars -it lightens the sky but I'm sure you get the idea! I also used a wink of stella on my silhouette images as I saw on those cupcakes a fine dusting of glitter on the frosting but the photo doesn't show it up at all :(

I love this paper smooches stamp set and have used it a few times I must admit! but love how it tells this story so simply - and its so quick and easy to recreate if i want, (except when you have to cover up the original sentiment as it went on squint...that took a good few goes!!!! :)


Thank you for taking the time to pop over and have a look
