Muse Christmas Tag

This week's Muse on Christmas Visions is Cornelia Wenokor who has produced this lovely tag.  I really liked the effect created by using vellum for the top tag and I tried to replicate this in my card. I embossed the sentiment onto the vellum and then clear embossed the snowflakes onto the card, inked it with distress ink and then ironed the embossing off.  I then attached the tags to a linen card.

Materials used:-
Tag die - Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners
Sentiment - an old stamp I got from Lakeland
Snowflakes - Uniko Studio "Stunning Snowflakes"
Distress ink - Salty Ocean
Vellum and baker's twine

Less is More - books

I haven't taken part in the Less is More challenges recently due to lack of time but I was keen to try this week's one as the theme is "books and literature".   I wanted to use the Graphic 45 stamp of a little girl reading as she looks so engrossed in her book. I have tried to keep the design clean and simple but still have a vintage feel.

Materials used:-
Stamps - Graphic 45 "Schooldays" set
Script stamp - Hero Arts "old letter writing"
Sentiment - Uniko Studio Fontiments Birthday
Inks - Archival Sepia and Versafine Onyx Black

Thanks for visiting my blog - now pop over to LIM to see what the other participants have created.

Peace, love and yoga

I haven't had much time for crafting recently,  but when I saw the this month's One Layer Simplicity Challenge I immediately had an idea for a card.  Yoga is one of my hobbies and so I felt the lotus flower was appropriate for this card.

Materials used:-

Mask - the Crafter's Workshop Balzer Designs
Distress ink - picked raspberry
Sentiment - Penny Black "love and yoga" set
