While I had the embossing powder & DCWV papers out I made this one. I feel as tho it's missing something but cant think what.
I seem to be in a purple mood at the mo and this is one made with a sketch on the magnolia v stampavie challenge blog. Paper is from DCWV stack, scallop cut on the cricut and I've stamped around Tilda with an unknown flourish stamp bought at the NEC.

My winter club kit from Magnolia arrived a few days ago and this has to be my favourite of the stamps included.
I've used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday with dcwv papers, brads from Trimcraft, cuttlebug folder and my favourite f&c pencils. Tildas coat ultramarine, leggings violet, legwarmers carmine rose and skates are light magenta. Edwins coat is mauve, trousers, hat & gloves indianthrene blue and skates are warm grey with a touch of ultramarine. With silver sakura for the blades and stickles for the fur trim.

Nearly late for the friday sketchers challenge with this one thanks to youngest daughter borrowing my camera.
One of the new Tilda xmas stamps coloured with f&c watercolour pencils, deep red & warm grey with some glistening show writer for the fur on his clothes. DCWV papers, snowflake cut with SCAL and some green mirri.

I had a lil delivery of new Tildas yesterday, woohoo. The first is using the sketch on Friday Sketchers. The striped paper is DCWV and the paper underneath is just white pearl stamped with red stayzon and a clear inkadinkado stamp. Cuttlebug snowflake folder and nesties. The snowflake in the corner was cut with SCAL & my cricut using iceflake font that I'd fiddled with a bit in PSP.

This one is the Anja Window that I used for the pink & silver xmas ornament last week. This time I've backed it with some Basicgrey paper and a 3d from Marianne Design. Mounted over some sparkly white card which has been embossed using a cuttlebug folder.
This is one that I really struggled with. The stencil is a normal size but when used as a diamond it needs a big card. This is a4 folded to make 8*8 with a flap. I've used DCWV papers and embossed the candle design before cutting areas away and backing with red, green & gold mirri. Some embroidery in the corners and a few gems.

All 3 of these are Anja Window Stencils from Marianne.
This one is actually upside down and I've cut away the window crossbar. There was just something about it that screamed xmas bauble so I teamed it with DCWV rose tinted xmas papers and a small 3d from a Mirielle decoupage book. Some lilac organza ribbon and a mat pearl silver card.

The paper is a really old K&Co one that I found lurking in the bottom of a box. Prima flowers, pink gems, cuttlebug embossing border and a scalloped base that I designed in PSP and cut on the cricut.

I've used a papermania snowman stamp, coloured with my f&c watercolour pencils, rose carmine, a tiny bit of cobalt green over his body, cadmium orange and indianthrene blue for his buttons.
Papers from the rose tinted xmas stack from DCW, mauve bazzill, silver pearl cut with oval nesties. Cuttlebug snowflakes are stuck to some metallic mizhuki cord with a penny black greeting stamped with purple stayzon. I'm not happy with the greeting, ideally it would be in the shape of a star so if anyone knows of a star xmas greetings stamp I'd love to hear about it.

Sugar Nellie santa again, with Christmas Treasures Holly paper from The Paper Company. The photo doesnt do the paper justice as it's a really gorgeous pearly paper with metalic red berries, seemed a shame to cover so much of it but at least I have a few more sheets I can play with. Present papers are DCWV, ribbon from Ribbon Box, prima flower with holly punch. Sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

Whilst bloghopping earlier I came across a new to me blog, Dolliedewdrop not only has she got some candy on offer she's also got some lovely eyecandy to get even the most reluctant mojo back.

The sketch saturday this week really gave me a few issues as I just dont have any landscape shaped stamps. This is one of my new stamps from Butterfly Kisses. She's coloured with burnt & rose carmine with violet and cobalt green on her wings before I masked her and over stamped with versamark & blue perfect pearls. K&Co background paper with primas, ribbon & gems.
