Bethan's 21st

Hi Everyone, please accept my apologies for not blogging regular, still trying to get into a routine,

This card was, as stated in the title, for Bethan's 21st birthday, she is my grandsons girlfriend,
The main card is a 8 x 8 white, with small scallops on three edges, the backing paper is from my stash
and was put through my Calibur using a large spot embossing folder, l then lightly inked with Black Soot distressing ink.  The main image was made using my new Tonic dies, mounted onto first white and secondly onto black to give more lift. The manikin l "dressed" using a Kanban stamp and paper
pieced also used 3 clear gems. Finished off making toning flowers and silver swirls, and the corner
pieces were waste from the die cutting.
Many Thanks for visiting my blog and any comments you wish to make would be very welcome.

Boxed Calendar gifts

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all keeping up with your Christmas crafting, here are
three candles that l have boxed using the new boards from Crafters
Companion....the first one l decorated with a Christmas theme using
my new die of a reindeer on the box and on the candle l placed a few
snowflake peel-offs, finished of tying with a piece of satin ribbon to
The second one l made a box from  pale lilac pearlescent card, and
decorated with both swirl and butterfly peel-offs, the butterfly peel-offs
were placed onto vellum and trimmed, then glued with silicone glue, l
also decorated the candle in the same way.

The third one l chose lovely pale pink pearlescent card, some more swirl peel-offs, and then l made some toning flowers with the Tonic
range of punches, attached to both the box and the candle to match,

I took these yesterday....Monday 4th my craft stall at my local
hospital, sold the Christmas one, and was shown quite a bit of interest
in the others...l was very pleased.  Hope you have enjoyed visiting my
blog and if you have any comments they would be very welcome....Thank You
