Christmas Wreath

Sarah here with a pretty Christmas wreath featuring the Nisse Ribbon Collection.

I started by winding the wreath with tiny string lights before adding any embellishments. The battery pack was secured with glue on the back.

Using the sweet Nisse ribbon I made a loop to hang the wreath and topped it with a bow. I then wound seam binding and eyelash ribbon around the wreath and secured at the top.

I decorated the wreath with paper flowers, snowflakes and sequins and then added some white acrylic paint to tone down the colours and create a snowy effect to go with the Nisse ribbon.

A dash of iridescent glitter sprinkled over dabs of glue added some sparkle as a finishing touch.

You can check out the full process video here 

Thanks for joining me today.

5 minute cards with Toppers

Happy Thursday Scatty Jan here today......
We all do it don't we? Yes there is always a need for a last minute card, someone forgotten pops up or an unexpected card pops through the door, I am sure I get caught out most years.
So this year I set myself a target 5 minute cards
I had discovered Crafty Ribbons do the most cutest toppers at an absolute amazing price
Check them all out Here

I really can not wait to get my hands on more of these beauties
I simply grabbed a few dies and popped them through my big shot but to be honest you could just use them as they are
So I gathered all my supplies and set the clock....

I dusted round each image with Distress Oxides, die-cut 3 little tags and stamped a sentiment in each and adhered a little string , layed up using foam tags to stick each topper to white card stock (cut at 3.5 x 3.5) , attached my ribbons, and then adhered to coloured card stock (cut at 4.0 x 4.0). I then glued to my 5 x 5 white card blank , attached my tag and a couple of dew drops to each card. I then stopped the clock
I worked on all three cards together and I stopped the clock at 14 minutes and 25 seconds!!
The lush ribbons are from the Christmas Cupcake Collection
and I have used
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Chocolate
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Red
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Turquoise
Thank you for looking

Sweet December

December is already here. Monthes passed so quickly. It's time to think about Christmas and all thinks around.

Today I'm wishing you a sweet December to think serenely during this period.
I used Ginger words ribbon from Gingerbread house collection to make this card and a very easy origami to do the christmastree. As I put on the middle, it looks like a pop-up card.

You could make it with children. 
Hoping you would have a sweet December as mine.

psss! I have a new website. You're welcome to visit it and comment!

You're Beautiful Russian Doll Ribbon Card

Good Morning Everyone! 

Today I am sharing my Russian Doll themed card. I love Russian Dolls and my daughter is obsessed with the one she has, when I saw this ribbon I was so happy :) I have used the Dolls Ribbon from the Russian Doll Collection.

I matched my papers and inks to the ribbon to create this card. The stamp set and mask I have used is the Beautiful Babushkas by For the Love of Stamps. I inked through the pattern, then separately stamped and coloured the little Russian Dolls, greeting and flowers using Distress Oxide Inks. To finish I added the beautiful ribbon and some sequins.

Thanks for looking,
