Flurry of wishes

Hello there. today I'm sharing with you my recent makes using the lovely flurry of wishes stamp set, this set was released last year but it made it in to the christmas section of this years annual catalogue, too pretty to retire!

This card evolved from the circle I was left with once I had die cut the aperture for my box ( see photo below this one ) I thought it would make a pretty bauble?
I love the new Holly berry builder punch and I used this punch to create my bow.
I gave the bow dimension by layering 2 together, on the top one I cut off the tails of the bow,
 so simple but effective.
The sentiment is from the stitched with cheer stamp set
 which co-ordinates with the Holly berry builder punch too!


So here's the box that inspired the card above.
I stamped the box using versamark ink and white embossing powder, it's a little time consuming but worth it for the bright white snowflakes.
The tag I made using the Jar of love bundle, the smallest jar makes such a cute gift tag! 
The red and white striped Candy cane lane twine is gorgeous!


Inside the box you can just about see a sweet treat,
Marks and Spencer Christmas cinnamon & hazelnut mini stars
OMG they are so yummy!
I had planned to scatter some of the mini stars around the box for the photo
 but they didn't make it, sorry...too yummy!

Happy World card making day!

Happy World card making day to you!
Today's the day that we celebrate our passion and love of this fun craft.
It's a perfect time to make and send a friend or loved one a hand made card that you have created and brighten their day!

I'm still wrapped up in making my christmas cards, I'm determined to have a stack of cards this year so that everyone on my list receives a hand made card.
So I'm sharing with you today another design from the adorable Merry mice stamp set.
How cute are they? 



I decided to use a blender pen for colouring in this image, there's lots of small details and the pen makes it so much easier to apply colour I find than an aqua brush.
The star embellishments i cut from one of the sheets of Candy cane lane DSP.

You can find a list of everything I used to create this card at the bottom of my post.
