Happy new year

Hoping to rescue Bill from the hospital tomorrow morning so we can celebrate together! Cannot believe he went & broke + dislocated his arm on Thursday ( the same one he had surgery on on June)

Hope you all have a very Happy New Year
I'm sharing a tag based on the Tim holtz December challenge

Still white

Well, it's still white rather than wet here although we did have rain at 03.00! So here are a few more wintery scenes

Sorry that I'm not sharing creations with you all at the moment but,,,, I am having so much fun!

Sunday 9 December 2012


Thought that I would post some non Christmas!

Big 'n juicy Hydreangea ink that I have smooshed & spritzed with some silver, the Stampers anonymous dragonfly (kinda blueprint!!!) that I've stamped onto the tag & also onto a spare piece of coloured paper & used some Verdigris EP with. I added a little pearlescent paint to the top layer dragonfly. A length of sheer ribbon that has a gathering thread through it and another white ribbon over the top, some buttons, a dragonfly brad, another length of organza ribbon to finish off.

It's got sparkle & has nothing to do with the season....Hope you've all had a good crafting week-end and ready for the last full week before Christmas!

Tim's December tag take 2

....more of yesterday's smooshed background which has also had a few snowflakes stencilled on using versamark + Lilac Pearl iridescent EP.

Stampendous poinsettia was then stamped onto the background using gold ink & EP, onto some old dictionary pages in Peeled Paint & Fired Brick both had clear embossing powder added .

I fussy cut & layered the coloured leaves & "petals", added a couple of gold flourishes (festive greenery sissix die) then used some glossy accents to glue some micro beads to the flower centre .

Peace on Earth (Rubber Stampede) was stamped in red & embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red Aurora onto an old exercise book page that I had coloured with Antique Linen DI, roughed up the edges & added a little Vintage Photo.

The threads came from the stash box!

That's another tag done & posted on a snowy winters day....Nice to have an excuse to play when one is full of the cold (that stepson had the kindness to share!)

Tim's December tag

I just knew that I should have ordered those blueprint stamps, not just the Christmas ones but all of them!

So for this months tag I had absolutely none of the requirements :-(

But not one to fall at the first hurdle...I decided to go with the theme rather than anything else.

A "smooshed" background - Black Soot & Chipped Sapphire DI - a spritz of gold acqua fortis.

Tim's snowman rubber stamp ink & EP in white, the top hat got restamped in gold, cut out & mounted with a few foam pads.

Mini holly Tonic punch gave me some tiny holly sprigs for the brim.

The Music score is also a Tim stamp that I used with gold ink & EP.

A small piece of blue tinsel, don't ask where that came from as I have no idea,

A gold snowflake sequin with an iridescent 3D one glued on over the top.

A short length of knitted iridescent white braid.....

Some gold letters diecut to spell JOY and an edge of gold glitter!

Job done Sally-style! I hope he likes it :-)
