Week 18 - "Going Roun in Circles" - MY FIRST DT XX

I was so excited when Lynne at the Craft Den asked me to join her DT. I love going to the Craft Den every week and I was really pleased. Thanks Lynne!

So here goes my first DT project for the Anything Goes Challenge.

I know it's a little early for a Christmas card; however I wanted to use my new Christmas stash from the Craft Den.

I used my new Cozy Tilda which I missed out on last year, I just love her and she is so cute. I punched the side of my card with my new EK Success snowflake punch. This is a great punch and goes through card stock. Great for edging cards.

I coloured Tilda with my copics and added Diamond Stickles to the edge of her coat and hood. I used Cranberry Blush papers which are Black Market and when I saw them at the Craft Den I knew I had to have them. I love Christmas papers in non traditional colours.

I added "round" Kars glitter brads along with my oval scalloped nestie and round craftworkcard sentiment to cover the "round" theme this week.

All products used on my card are from the Craft Den. I hope you like my first DT creation. Come and join us this week.

Christmas Workshop

I have had a great day at the Craft Den today. It was the all day Christmas workshop and I have learnt lots of different techniques. It was a really good day - thanks Lynne!

We made 4 cards, handbag and a bookmark!!

Here are some of the cards that I made using the new Craftwork Card materials Lynne has on sale. I distressed the snowflake windows with DI and added stickles and card candy in co-ordinating colours.

For this card I used the lovely papers as a feature and added a border, sentiment and card candy to embellish the card.

I really enjoyed making these cards because I always tend to use a coloured image on my cards - usually a Magnolia, but it was nice to try something different.

Hope you like them!

Quick Card with my new Tilda with Thistle

I have been to the Craft Den tonight and had a great class. I missed last weeks class so I couldn't wait to go! I couldn't miss tonight because Lynne has had the delivery of the Magnolia's!! It's my birthday next week so I decided to spend some of my pennies on a few Tilda's. I bought Silent Night Tilda, Sitting Tilda with pumpkins, Hells Broth and Tilda with Thistle.

I couldn't wait to get home and play so I decided to make a very quick card with the Thistle Tilda. She is part of the Halloween Collection which I didn't know, but I love her spider web trimmed dress!

It's a very simple card which didn't take me long to complete, but I am quite pleased with it.

I used my new Memory Box Blackbird papers which are great for Halloween cards & birthdays. I coloured Tilda with my Promarkers for a change and also added stickles to the thistle and trim of dress. I used my new WOJ "Happy Fright Night" sentiment and added a bit of card candy, I haven't used them for ages so because I had made a very simple card I thought they would sproose it up a little!!

I can't wait for the weekend - 1 more day to go!!
