Pyrography and Designs by Ryn

Hello bloggers!

I seem to have lost my card-making mojo lately... but I'm loving Pyrography (wood burning) now! I've only got a very basic Pyrography tool (at the moment!! ;) ) so I can't vary the colour of the burn, however I've tried to vary the tones on this door hanger by making some of the beautiful Celtic stars from Designs By Ryn solid, and left some just with an outline. A few Swarovski crystals add a bit of Christmas sparkle!

Thank you for visiting! Xxx

That's Crafty Challenge

Hello peeps!

I've decided to play along with the latest That's Crafty Challenge, which is 'Tag, you're it!'

I've used Carabelle Studio stamps that I bought from That's Crafty, I love their online shop and I'd really love to visit their 'bricks and mortar' shop one day...

Thank you for visiting, lovely peeps! Xxx

Clean And Simple!

Hello bloggers!

I've been inspired by the fabulous work of Hermine Koster recently, and I love her work with Carabelle Studio stamps especially. Here I've combined a Carabelle Studio stamp that features stitching with sixties-style ladies that remind me of Simplicity sewing patterns (can't remember the make of stamp, sorry!)

Lavinia Challenge time!

Hello Bloggers!

Can't believe it's November already... Must be time for another Lavinia Stamps challenge! This month we want to see your Christmas designs please.

I made this card by pressing a Distress Ink pad onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then plonking it onto the card, easy. The lovely tree is, of course, from Lavinia Stamps.

The prize as always is £40 to spend in the store. You can enter the challenge HERE, either via your blog or by email. Have fun!
