NOOR AND LIVE AND LOVE CRAFTS - Bottle Tag

Morning all,
  
I have another Wine Bottle Tag to share today which I made using the lovely products from http://noordesign-shop.co.uk/
Again I started off using the lovely Doobadoo Polyester Bottle Label Stencil .  After creating the shape and cutting the circle with one of my Spellbinders Nestabilities dies (perfect size!), I then covered the lower part with the lovely papers ( Happy Holidays).  Then I went from there adding this and that using my Noor (JOY) dies and a selection of lovely embellishments from http://www.liveandlovecrafts.com/

Can you see the Dutch Doobadoo structure paste dotted onto the Shabby embellishments?  Oh my! I am indebted to Tracy at Noor Designs UK for telling me about this!  I sprinkled fine glitter on top to give a sparkley effect.

Well, you can tell I enjoyed this as this is creation number 2!  And I have another one to come yet also!   I can well recommend this stencil, and all the lovely items I used.

These are the products used from http://noordesign-shop.co.uk/

I loved making this.  I inked the papers with Tim Holtz Distress ink and although it does show not very well on the photo there is lots of gold sparkle.

CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND - Anything but square or rectangle

Hi everyone

Today sees the midway point for the  Challenge at CCAYR, which is entitled 'Anything but square or rectangle'.  Well, this theme was just up my street, so you can imagine I loved making this card.  I really do not think you can beat the embossed look for that nice crisp, clean fresh look, and I thought it went well with the snowy look also.

Thank you so much for looking,

KRAFTYHANDS - Man about Town - Gift Bag

Morning all,

I have another Altered Gift Bag to share today using the lovely papers (Man About Town) again  which can be found at Kraftyhands
 
As I said yesterday, I felt these papers really were best left to lead the way.  It seemed so wrong to cover these up, but I really had to slap my hands to stop adding more embellishments!   They team perfectly with Kraft so these bags were ideal to be altered.  I think they came from Hobby Craft in packs of so many.
