Muse Christmas Visions no.2

This is my take on Elizabeth's second card over at MCV and I admit that it kinda went off on a tangent....
You see discovered I  don't have a  branches stamp so then I had to think of something else so thought branches  = trees! with me so far?
Then I found my little cottage one and I just love it  and so from that this card was born !
So my inspiration came from :-

Branches (well trees have branches dont they??) and Elizabeth's are pine branches!
Inky backgound
Colours blue ,black and yellow
Image to the left of the card  ...Ok I'm reaching with that one :)
Has intended to put on  a white sentiment but had a senior moment and had inked and stamped it before I remembered !!! 

But thanks for looking

Muse:Christmas Visions

This week over a Muse:Christmas Visions  they have a Guest Designer and it is none other than ElizStewart and she has given us not one but two cards to play along with !

For my card I chose the snowflake one ...Isn't it a beauty loved that diecut snowflake in the middle!
(hoping time allows and I can have a go at doing an inky background one like Elizabeth's second card too!)

I found my eye drawn to the word Joy and the snowflakes on Elizabeth's card so I went with that .
I found my inspiration from:-
The word Joy 
The sparkly snowflake 
and finally the tiny bits of bling - gems  

Thanks for taking the time to look

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
