Mini Rosette Christmas Trees

Hello my lovely crafty friends. I hope you've all had a super Christmas. We had a fabulous time!

I love Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas but never found time to join in this year. He made some rosette trees and I managed to make a few and gave them as little extra gifts over our festive travels. I didn't get to photo all of them as they were made very last minute as needed,but here are 2 I would like to share just before the festive season finishes!

Tim Holtz rosette dies in all 3 sizes
white paint
glamour dust
jelly beans!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope to catch up with you all really soon.

Christmas Tree Ornaments

Hi,today is a new challenge over at Scraptastic Monday. Challenge #6 is to to make a Christmas tree ornament,card or tag and it must have a Christmas ball and some bling.

We would love you to join us and use one of Cindy's fabulous digis which you can get from here but it's not a requirement.

I decided to use Cindy's Sweet Angels Set and make tree decorations. This image was so easy to use for this.

I love these digis and coloured with promarkers.Added lots of glamour dust for their halos and wings. Glossy accents on the baubles and outlined with silver krylon pen.
I added beads onto some wire I curled and a bit of tinsel ribbon.
I sandwiched the wire between front and back layers.

Check out all the beautiful ornaments over at Scraptastic Monday and I am looking forward to seeing your creations.

Have a great day.

Tree Trimming Penguin Style!

Hello,I don't seem to have had much time to craft of late,but managed to make this in between preparing tea! Now usually I can't get any decent photos in an evening but Santa has been kind enough to let me have a trial play with a present!!

I made this card for Penny Black Saturday Challenge - White Out. You can add colour to your image (which is the tree - has to be  Penny Black ).
This also fits my good friend Cindy's challenge over at Scraptastic Monday which is to use a snowman or snowflake with a Winter Wonderland scene.
I am also entering this over at Whimsical Designs #34,Winter theme,use sparkle.

Penny Black - tree stamp - silver heat embossed
Sizzix embossing folder for background
Glitter highlights to embossing
Snowtex and glamour dust edges
Glittered white lace trim

This sparkles so beautifully next to the Christmas tree lights!

Thanks for stopping by.
