Christmas Poinsettia

This is a sneak peek at one of the sample cards that I have made for the Ooh La La Creations shows that will be on Hochanda this Thursday.  Our very own Lynn will be presenting and demonstrating three fabulous Ooh La La Creations CD Roms:

The Paula Oakley Collection
Say it with Words
and
Shoes in Bloom

Make sure you tune in or set your recorders for Thursday 2nd June at 10am and 3pm.

I used the Shoes in Bloom CD to make this card.


I have used one of the fabulous decoupage images called Christmas Poinsettia.  I printed an extra sheet so that I could add an additional poinsettia as an embellishment.


The ribbon and sentiment are from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

May Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
Jingle Belles Challenge - Banish the Holiday Blues
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Big or Little Bows (big bows because they are easier to tie)

Make sure you tune in to Hochanda on Thursday at 10am and 3pm - you will see three fabulous CD Roms.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

Rosette Heart Wreath

I'm sharing another of the projects that I made for Simply Cards & Papercraft using the gorgeous NitWit Ooh La La Collection.


I used my Tim Holtz Paper Rosette Die and a 1” Circle Punch to make the rosettes, I just added a pearl to the centre of them and used hot glue to adhere them to a heart frame.  The sentiment is also from the Ooh La La Collection.

There is a step by step guide on how to make this wreath in the magazine along with a free download for the heart frame so make sure you pick up a copy.

Celebrate with Sound

Before I share my card for today I have some exciting news - I have been invited to join the CD Sunday Design Team.
You all know how much I love CD crafting and I have been entering the CD Sunday Challenge ever since I started making cards so I'm really excited to be joining this fabulous team.   My first challenge will be in two weeks time but there is a new challenge starting today, Lets go Lilac so make sure you pop over and check it out.

This is another of the cards that I made for last months Making Cards Magazine. I was asked to created nine cards using the Free CD containing 127 Men's Themed Printable Craft Papers. I was only allowed to use the images & papers from the CD with just a few basic items - not easy when you are making nine cards, at least there are lots of images to choose from though.


This is a great image for those difficult teenagers, I think it would be OK for a boy or a girl.


The image and papers are from the CD, all I have added are a Clearly Besotted stamped sentiment and some card candi.


Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - make sure you enter my little giveaway HERE, I am giving a copy of the Making Cards Magazine that included this CD away to one of my followers.
