Just wanted to show you the Freebie embossing folder that came with the Reindeer Stamp & Christmas tree stamps.. I've kept it simple, embossed in Pale blue card and embellished with Sue Wilsons Filigree Poinsettia and holly leaves....Sentiment is from All Occasion Die.

For my card today I have used Sue Wilsons California background die and cut it lengthwise and popped it onto black card then mounted it onto Vintage gold card. The lovely reindeer was part of a 'freebie' along with two stamps and an embossing folder on a magazine this month I dont normally buy magazines but thought the stamps and embossing folder was worth the price of the magazine!
Stamped and mounted the lovely swirly reindeer onto one of the Spellbinders Floral Oval dies...finished by card off with some gold ribbon and a few gold 'pearls' .....Cant get a good photo with the black and the gold sorry...
Hope you are all enjoying this lovely warm weather....

Where did last week go? Another challenge over at Pixie's Snippet challenge
although I've used snippets to make my challenge cards my box isn't going down as it builds up again during the week!!
Do you remeber the time before we had dies and punches....well I used to buy artifical flowers and leaves and pull them apart to make floral cards...last week I had a clear out of all those flowers and gave them to my granddaughters to make cards with but I did keep a few odd bits being the leaves and the little cones....no idea where they came from sorry...
The die is a Marianne Creatable one.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend...

Last night was our Craft Club meeting our two project were a 'shoe box' (dont now why its called that!) where we give everyone a bag containing an image, paper, card, embellishments...the girls have to use part of everything we give them but they can also add embellishments of their own....Karen and I also have the same bag and this is my completed card...the photo's aren't great as we used holographic card...The girls did a brilliant job every single card was different but silly me forget to take a picture...doh!
The second project was masking off part of a card then inking and stamping across the centre making a one layer image...
these are a few of my samples...
Using various clear stamps
Stampin Up French Foliage
Stampin Up Wetlands
Stamps from Inkylicious
Next month we are playing with paper napkins and making a pop out card..
Hope the sun is shining on you all today its glorious down here in deepest Somerset...

My card is quite pale so very difficult to get a good picture on this lovely sunny day but I'm not complaining...
The good news is that my grandson didn't have his elbow pinned but has a new cast and has gone back to school today a little apprehensive as thats where the accident happened but at the moment he is only part time ....

just added a couple of glass embellishments and some grapes..
Do you remember me telling your our little grandson started school last Monday, well he managed 3 half days before taking a tumble at playtime and fracturing his elbow....he's got a temporary plaster cast on at the moment but tomorrow he goes back to hospital as its looking possible they might have to pin the joint....will let you know what happens...
Hope you are all enjoying this lovely warm weather we are having at the moment...

Well I am so pleased with myself I've just made my 2nd Christmas card...the sun is shining and its warm and I just cant get to grips with the 'C' word at the moment..
I've been playing around with masks and embossing them...this one is a Touch Mask called 'Flourishing Heart'.. using Versamark ink pad I patted my mask all over before popping into the Bigshot and embossing it....then I sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and embossed it.
Using SU old olive ink pad I coloured the mask all over and of course the embossed bits resisted the ink.
Dies have used are Sue Wilsons Holly Flourish. Spellbinder Poinsettia (using vellum rather than card and adding glitter), Dainty Dots embosing folder and the sentiment is from Stampin Up 'Greetings of the Season' set...
