Inked the edges of the tag and added some patterned paper, the round frame is WOJ 'Frames' stamp set, the sentiment is WOJ 'General Sayings 11' stamp set, large flower is WOJ 'Rolled Scalloped Flower' and then finished the tag off with sime Wild Orchid flowers and leaves.

Something a little different........

I have been playing with something a little different, I pulled out my gesso and Distress Stains and this gorgeous set of Whiff of Joy stamps 'Frames'.

I scraped some gesso on, splatted some Distress Stain, waited for it to dry and then stamped this pretty frame.

Then finished the card with some Wild Orchid flowers, leaves, a butterfly and Prima alphas.

I think I still need lots of practice with mixed media but it was fun getting my hands a little messy! Thank you for stopping by.

WOJ - A Christmas Card!

Yes, I have made a Christmas card! I am wanting to start early this year so I can enjoy the process without having a mad rush to get them done in time to post across the world.

This is an older stamp but still love her, WOJ's 'From Heaven Above'.

Used up some older Christmas patterned Paper, think I need to go shopping for all my cards. Inked and stitched the edges of the paper, doily from my stash, the banner is WOJ's 'Christmas Banners' stamp set and matching WOJ Die-Light 'Cute Banner Trio'. Finished off with some twine, Wild Orchid flowers and some pearls.

Have you started making any Christmas cards yet? Thank you for stopping by.

WOJ - Tag

Its been a long time, with so much happening I haven't sat at my craft desk or even picked up a Copic marker in ages! So this weekend, feeling sick I decided the housework can wait a bit longer and I have been playing, what an awesome feeling. And even better news, my blog seems to be back to normal and I can post :)

So first up is a tag, using WOJ's 'You're are a Stitch - Free Spirit'.

WOJ's 'Large Nested Tag Die-Lights' are perfect for making tags, with five different sizes to choose from.

I layered some patterned paper with a doily and finished the tag off with some liquid pearls and a little cluster of embellishments.

The little spool is a WOJ Die-Light, the scissor's charm is WOJ's 'Sew Sweet' and mini button from my stash.

Well I better get back to my chores and the sooner they are done, the sooner I can get back to my crafting desk! Thank you for stopping by.
