The City Crafter challenge is "Isn't she lovely?" She IS 'eh!?
The current Fab and Funky challenge is flower power! Crafty Secrets has DOZENS of gorgeous vintage floral images...have a look!
Now here are some Crafty Secrets Halloween cards just published in the current issue of one of my very favourite paper crafting magazines, Paper Creations; aren't these just the CUTEST images!? I just love the way Paper Creations photographed these cards. Their photography looks so much better than mine! (lol) I have lots more Crafty Secrets cards and projects coming up in three different magazines...watch this space :-)
Let's see, now here are some Christmas cards I just finished with Lynell Harlow's FABULOUS new stencils over at Dreamweaver. Creative Cottage challenge # 21 is Christmas, so I'm entering these three for that challenge. This next card also fits with the current City Crafter challenge...isn't she lovely. As soon as I saw this Hallelujah, I knew exactly what I wanted to pair it with...this stamp from Magenta. I used Melt Art clear ultra thick embossing enamel after I stamped the image with Ancient Page Chocolate Brown ink. I used just one layer of the EP because I wanted a mottled, textured look. I stencilled with gold glossy embossing paste, then sprinkled Green Metallic FX over the wet paste. What a beautiful sheen that gives the paste! Look at all the gorgeous Metallic FX colours available right here.
This is another newly released stencil...SOOO pretty! I used white matte embossing paste, then Green Metallic FX powder over that. I used LOTS of Tulip crystals for the berries...love that bling! :-) For the sentiment, I used the same paste, and sprinkled just the smallest bit of Gold Metallic FX over that, just for a little sheen.

For this card, I used another wonderful Impression Obsession stamp designed by Gary Robertson. His stamps lend themselves so beautifully to embellishing with Flower Soft! I decided to use a little humour too, with the "his 'n' hers" out houses. The sentiment stamp is from Quietfire Design.
