Is this Art deco?

Hi all, I'm popping by with a card I've made using the latest Art Deco collection from Tracy over at Noor Design UK, the next collection is available from here, now I don't
really do Art Deco so please be kind, lol

I used some of  the gorgeous papers,  just adding an image to go with them, on the outsides of the card I used a gorgeous new to me, Lattice border die I got again from Tracy's shop as I'd seen Judy use this and just had to buy one,
The feathers, gem, and straws were in the kit and I just added a flower, and leaf die again from my stash,
I then used some of this lush black ribbon and this gorgeous Art Deco Jewel embellishment which loves fab in real life and which I think looks so much like the one on the images dress I've used,
There are lots of stuff in the collection I haven't even touched yet, so watch this space, he he
happy Crafting!!

I added some cheesecloth and a pine cone, from my stash, then finished it off with a hint of Snowtex which came as part of the kit,
As you can see I then used the gorgeous lace, white snowflake buttons, glass strawberries, white fabric leaf and the oh so cute star bottle again in the kit, again adding a hint of Snowtex here and there,

Star Decorations and tags

Hi guys, Tuesdays here again so it's my turn for some inspiration for
This time I have made some Christmas decorations and some tags for putting on some presents,

 I have used the  paper pad North Pole by Craft and you design to make these stars, finishing them off with flowers, sequins, chipboard, beaded berries, Pomegranate Apples and twine,

For the tags I used the tag sheet again by crafts and you design -  North Pole

After cutting the tag shapes out of the sheet, I fixed it to a piece of cardstock which I had pre folded and cut to make a small card/tag shape, I glued these together then distressed the edges a little,
I did this for all the tags,

I used the gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards for the baubles from the Mon Cheri - village collection and I just added some glamour dust over the top,
This one I added a hint of red for the embellishments to match in with the pattern, so I used some red twine and red Pomegranate Apples, I then just finished it off with a little moss and seam binding,

I used similar for this one just adding gold  coloured embellishments instead,
Check out these and all the gorgeous products Monika has in store,
Happy Crafting!!

Yuletide Kit - Gift bag

Hi guys, I thought I'd show you a paper bag which I decorated and was part of the
Yuletide collection from Tracy at  Crafteezee
which I ordered from here

I started off with the white bag, which was in the kit, then 
 I layered some of the beautiful Pion papers, distressing the edges slightly,
I used a ribbon slider in the kit, but I added a cabochon from my stash adding one of the tiny snowflakes from one of the papers on the back, 

I used mostly the things in the kit, just adding a snowflake die on the edge, available from Tracy's shop and some of the gorgeous white seam binding from the last  Craftezzee kit which I had left over,
The flowers white leaf and chipboard Holly leaves which I covered with a little (glamour dust) from my stash, were in the kit and then I made a couple made of flowers using some dies out of the papers too,

I then used the gorgeous lace and finished off the bag with some seam binding, small jingle bells, and a bark star using hints of Snowtex again  in the kit,

Christmas Star

Hi guys, I'm here today with my inspiration piece for 
Love to craft and create,
I started with a piece of paper from the Beautiful Day 12 x 12 pack by Craft and you design,
When I received this gorgeous chipboard by Scrapiniec, I just couldn't resist adding some Fantage Aged ivory embossing enamel onto it,

I made one of my handmade Poinsettia's again to this time adding some chunky glitter on the edges and a large button for the middle from my stash,
Because the Frantage has hints of gold coloured flecks in it, I then used some of the fabulous Pomegranate Apples in a gold colour, then some white stamens too,
I added a little cheesecloth onto the base layer with some tiny beads again from my stash,
I finished off the card with some sequins in a gold colour too,
Well yep, that's yet another Christmas card off me, probably got more cards then who I need to send too, lol
Happy Crafting!!
