3 Embossalicious to share with you!

Hello everyone!!! Are you ready for the 4 Day Deal tomorrow, 12th August with Leann on Create & Craft from 8am!! 
Here are 3 cards that I have made using the new Christmas Embossalicious Embossing Folders and Die'sire Dies!
My first one I used the 8x8 Christmas Baubles Folder and inked up the folder with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I then cut them out and used the 6x6 Let It Snow folder. Backing paper is from Mulberry Wood - Christmas and I used a gorgeous green Darks Centura Pearl card to set it all off! Around the edges I used my Red Liner Tape and silver glitter, few peel offs and made some little bows, which I think match perfectly!
The Sentiment is from Sentimentals - Christmas Magic stamped into Tags 1

My next card I have used Gold Mirri and the tree stamp from the Sentimentals - Christmas Magic and used my versamark with Sheena's Gold WOW Embossing powders! I then stamped from the same plate into the centre of Die'sire Magic Mirror added lots of Snowflakes in gold mirri and Centura Pearl and a couple of gems to finish! 

For my final card I have used Silver mirri and Darks Centura Pearl. I have embossed the blue card with Holiday Holly and used the Die'sire Holly die in silver and vellum. I stamped the same way as before using the Christmas Magic Plate and added a bow to finish! 
Thanks so much for popping by, love to read your comments!

Something different!

Hi Everyone!
OMG what a scorcher of a day!!!!
Did a car boot this morning and was very drizzly at 8am and thought oh no just typical, anyways at about 9am started to clear and red hot sunshine ever since! Did well at the car boot too, made just short of £100 so very happy with that and came away with a tan too!!!!
Today is a card for my daughter's friend Hayley, very quick to do on Serif Craft Artist 2 and Ashleigh is just so pleased it's personalised!
Her friend is very much into gaming, like Ashleigh and this is a character called "Jak" from the Jak and Daxter games! Hope you like it!

Camden Town Shelf Card Tutorial

Hello Everyone!
I have been asked by a few people on how to make one of the Concept Cards from the Camden Town Kit, so here is a step by step guide on how to make this card!

You will need the following:
Concept Card
Mirri Card
Embellishments & Pearls
Choose your Concept card base along with your embellishments to use.

Fold your concept card and crease with your bone folder for nice sharp creases to look like this and place the flat card through the slot.

You can if you wish put backing paper on the inside which I have done to make the card look pretty. (remember to cut through the slit at the back!)

To make my Toppers stand I used acetate stands, you can use card too if you wish.

Finally, place your toppers onto the Shelf and decorate as desired!

Hopefully this has helped and you can now make your cards!
Thanks for popping by and would love to read your feedback!
Bye for now!
