WOJ - Whiff of Joy and Georgeous Ribbon

Evening fellow Bloggers!!
Well have been busy making my cards today, only seemed to have managed the one.
I take sooo long in the planning really I dont think I would get any points for mass production.
I started with the papers, which are anitas from last years stash, I have distressed the edges with the tim holtz distress inks then mounted onto some textured navy cardstock.
I have mixed and matched the spellbinders labels and petite ovals for this image which is the beautiful Whiff Of joy lady she is so pretty and I couldnt resist her at the craft shop yesterday.
Fab ladies they do all sorts of crafty things and the shop is relatively new but has all the goodies you could want.
The brad and spacer is from the Hobby house, the chain and charm is from ebay. The ribbon believe it or not is from matalans, I was going to use this on my christmas tree but never got round to it, so it has been in the back of my drawer for around 12 months.
I have used loads of bling (glam dust) the die cut snowflakes are the best die ladies mariannes
Hope you like this I will be placing my cards on ebay if you would like to purchase them!
need to fund more lovely goodies
Ta for now will be back soon

Another lovely LOTV

Good Afternoon Bloggers!!!!

I have been trying to get some of my christmas cards finished, it just seems to take me ages to do one card let alone 50 which really I need to do as a minimum.

I am not too sure on the colours on this card! As I am relatively new to crafting well around 18 months I am now loving all the decorative papers out there. But cant seem to bring myself to cut some of the up as they are too nice to use!!!

This paper is from the 'Christmas Joy' digi set from Bearly mine a fantastic range of digital backgrounds from a very clever lady. Its well worth having a look on her website they all have a vintage feel and have the lovely rough edged detail in the print which means you dont necessarily have to use the distress inks on the edges.

The ribbon is a Sheer 38mm organza ribbon which does have particuarly lovely shimmer to it although the camera has not picked this up. I have embellished it with loads of glitter around the edges and the doily, the flower is again one of the fab ones from the marianne range, I have used a metallic gold spacer for the centre which I have ordered lots and just waiting for them to arrive. The sentiments are from my stash, the corners are from the cuttlebug vintage set

I just need to get a little more confident with using colours and lots of different mats etc

Well happy crafting everyone

Another Lili of the valley Christmas card

I have spent ages on this card! firstly with all the glitter, diamond dust for the flowers and that fiddly bow.

This lili of the valley stamp has got to be my fav so far, I hope you agree. Its great to stamp and is soooo cute.

The poinsettias are of course marianne's all the shapes are from my doted collection of spellbinders which I love they look fab once they have been finished with the embossing round the edges.

The sentiment is from the pc and the ribbon from my gorgeous collections of ribbon which I collect and cant seem to get enough.
Will post again soon
take care &
happy crafting
