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
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
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 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 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.

pti MIM

Dry embossing over heat embossing is the them over at this weeks MIM
I just had to use the sparkle and shine stamp set for this (I just can't put it down)

I created just a simple design. I used a glittered embossing powder as I really did want it to 'sparkle'

I've been creating lots of things with this stamp set, I just really love it. I can't wait for the co- ordinating die to arrive ( and a few others that happened to drop in me basket ) hehe

christmas mode it is

Every time I sit down to create just lately I seem to end up creating something christmas related.
This week over at MIM melissa shows us to  paint n stamp onto mason jars. I just couldn't resist, however I have nomad on jars :( I just had a plain old normal jar.
So using some glossy accents I added the word joy and a few lines etc to the jar and left to dry. I thought that by doing that after fk painted and sanded it, it wouldn't look so plain.

I used some sparkly glittered embossing powder . My order from pti arrived as I was creating the jar so decided to use it  on the decoration hanging from the jar.


 Earlier today I think I convinced my sister that she needed to have this sparkle and shine stamp set ( and the holiday addition set too) hehe, I really really love it, I've been using it for sooo many things, can't wait to get the co-ordinating die :) I'm seriously thinking about getting the make it market kit to this set, it's just the whole expense of customs and parcel force that puts me off :/ 
I'd love the new tinsel and tags kit too, those cute little houses (want it....need it haha)
Iam soooo pleased that the shipping is now cheaper at pti, as it means that I can now order a set (or 2) of stamps each month and only pay £10 shipping and it arrives at my door within the week, instead of it being stuck with customs for 3 weeks and having to pay them an extra £30-£40!!
So really pleased that I can now do smaller orders each month even though I always want it all hehe .
