boo!

Boooooo! Hehe!
Well tomorrow is halloween and below is this weeks theme over at fusion

So straight away i was thinking of halloween. We dont really celebrate halloween over here like over in the states, which is a real shame, but i made a halloween themed card anyway.



 I managed to create 'fusion' this week hehe. I would also like to enter this creepy card into this weeks sss weds challenge too http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/
Ive had that orange bazzil cs for years, its about time i started to use up someof my older things, ha! 
Iam a terrible hoarder when it comes to crafting, i hav paper and card that ive had for 7/8 years and still wont cut cos its too pretty, im the same with some embellies too .

partial die stamping

Thats what the theme is over at this weeks MIM http://nicholeheady.typepad.com
Well a cpl od days ago look what arrived 

So i thought i would have a quick play for the challenge.
Heres what i came up with

I'm still loving the sparkle and shine stamp sets and now that i have the dies too even more so. I will just be using these time and time again. I layered the sparkle die on top of another in white and just offset it a touch to create a shadow effect.
I like the simplicity of the card and the same design could be used for birthdays etc, just need to replace 'this christmas'
 

I threw a quick tag together using the new bookmark die, a cpl of the shaker star dies, stamps from sparkle and shine and button boutique.

something simple

Over at this weeks SSS Wednesday challenge http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/ the theme is watercolour.
I've created something very simple for this challenge, as iam creating a load of tags. So I decided to create a small tag for this challenge using a mini craft cb. I created the background using distress inks and water. The other week I came across a magazine that had a free spell binders stamp set with it, so bought it for the stamp set haha! 



 
This is the first time that I have used it, I stamped the fancy snowflake design on top of the watercoloured background with versamark and then embossed it with wow sparkling snow embossing powder.


I haven't added a sentiment yet as I can't decide if I want one or not, plus it may be for a December birthday and not christmas. It looks really pretty irl.

Edited to add
I stamped the same image stamp onto vellum and embossed it again. Using distress inks onto the back of the vellum.

more christmas

I simply can't help using me new stamps that I got from pti, just love them.i just had to use them for this weeks festive Friday challenge http://www.festivefriday.blogspot.co.uk here is this weeks inspiration pic






The sparkle word, the bulbs and the tiny sparkly stars are my most favourite of the stamps, I just adore them. This card was so quick and simple but I love it. I couldn't just stop at one card though so I decided to play a little more with the stamps.

I bought some of the plain cotton bags from pti with my last order. I have some inexpensive christmas gifts to give and thought that it would be great to create so e lovely packaging for them.
I placed a sheet of card inside the bags before stamping and they stamped perfectly. I have added a little stuffing inside, the gift and a cpl of choccies :) I think I may do some of these for decoration around the house and also as a christmas countdown for the chloe monster :)






I then created another cpl of bags in a cpl of other colours too.








Absolutely loving these stamps and bags ( I have some more bags on the way too )
Sorry for the pic heavy post.
