1st attempt at a canvas

Hi again fellow bloggers
I have tried making a mixed media canvas on a sewing theme to use my Tim Holtz Sizzix dies and embossing folder. I quite enjoyed the process and may have a try at a different theme.The main background is self adhesive fabric from papermania
Entered into Diecutting Divas challenge - anything goes.

Hi fellow bloggers
Here is my first batch of christmas cards

I have started on my christmas cards as have a few days off. This is stamped with a stampendous stamp that I have had for years. The centre of the poinsettias is puff paint for some dimension. The sentiment is on a spellbinders circle diecut backed with a dlites medallion diecut. The card is edged with the ink used for the poinsettia - Rangers distress ink - 
worn lipstick. The sentiment is inked with Pesto adirondak ink.

 These two sets are stamped with a cardio stamp set I have had for about 6 years. The maroon ribbon is from Mei crafts. the gems are from a set I got from Docrafts and the sentiments are peel offs which I have also had for ages and never used. The inks used are all Rangers distressed inks. Some have been embossed with my Scorit. The envelopes have a small image on the flap to match the wreath.
