Quiet old day

Well today I have done 3 things, cook Roast Pork, watch the F1 Grand prix, and ................Craft!


So I have been a busy little beaver, as my new La Pashe Big One CD arrived yesterday, yippee, so yes all right I got a bit carried away!! but I only made 2 cards with that set so I was good!!

Obviously, I used the Christmas Carols set, some old paper I had lasered and foiled, and distressed, some Matt Gold Linen effect Card, a bit of Glitter on the Starting letter, and hey presto,

then I decided to do it again, this time on Red so I could decide which one I liked the best

Not much difference really, jury is still out, but I did get the old Craft Robo/Silhouette to do the cutting for me, hehehe much easier!!

Then I had a bit of a play with some Vintage Photo distress inks, and stamped out all 6 of the Pilkington Christmas sets, Christmas Carol singers, and Winter wonderland.

I have done them as a set, so heres the second one........

You cant really see but the gems are actually Orange , not Green, my scanner isn't too good. I used some Neenah white card, and Vintage photo and a water brush, Bronze Pearlescent card, for the Matt used good old Pinflair/ silicon glue with the Pearlescent as it can slip on tape, and again for the flourish thingie with what seems to be my favourite set of spellbinders at the moment, good old Ironwork accents! The Flourish is actually 2 of the same die, woven together at the ends to form a longer flourish. Some Bronze organza ribbon, MCS ultra fine glitter and Cosmic Shimmer, cosmic Blush Mica pen. This one is all but identical to the previous one exactly the same as the one before, but this time I used the Sunrise Yellow for the door way. Both are mounted on Silk Art card, and the edges were distressed with the same colour, Vintage Photo, I am entering this one in the Simon says Stamp Challenge Here, for the House Challenge, My first ever Challenge entry!
I'll post the other 4 tomorrow, as my bed is calling and the just need the flourishes Pinflairing on lol
