Christmas Banner

Late post here and hope you all had a great Christmas---I have made my New Years resolutions already--at least once a week I am going to make a project using an unused or neglected item of stash and to use a forgotten or a new technique - I have so many unused stamps/dies it's unreal also having a BIG declutter--starting with the stamp giveaway in post above!!!
I am posting a banner made for a monthly swap on a FB stamping forum.
This month the theme was Christmas so I used a holly sprig paper background from stash and the stamps were craft mag freebies--seeeee get plenty of use out of these whilst brand new unused bought ones lay in drawer!!!I also stamped images using the masking technique-first of my forgotten techniques lol

Love These Two lol

I made two cards with free images found here on Kajsans scrap blog.
The first one was coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents/glamour dust,the papers were left over scraps of craft mag freebies,stamped sentiment from Penny Black,doodles were made with ruler and fineliner pen--all straight forward and simple right!!!

NOW for a laugh---CAS it maybe BUT---now when I first looked at the image and I have no idea why??? I though the end was a branch with leaves so coloured it brown as it did it I moved the image and realised it was a Santa hat--yes yes I know what an idiot --now I know what it is I see it straight away lol.Gets better -finished colouring it stuck it onto card and stamped the sentiment into the top corner --as I tried to open the card thought omg --had stuck the sentiment on what I thought was the top but had card upside down!!!had to trim round the image and stick onto another card and yes I can hear you all laughing CAS my foot!!! putting it politely lol.Took me longer than the first one!!!!!!!!!!!!

Errr Christmas Again lol

Morning it is our 49th wedding anniversary today just say waiting for my medal to arrive lol.
I also have another Christmas card to share--I won the "Christmas Candle"image from Sheepski and I coloured it with promarkers.
I stamped and gold embossed the backing card with a Penny Black poinsettia stamp and also embossed the edges using a new very juicy embossing pad which ended up a little thick and messy in places but I am happy with that,the poinsettia was a die from Creative Dies,gems from stash.

Now it's usually Holly and her mishaps but----we have an indoor shed where John goes to listen to his radio,smoke his pipe and make his models---with superglue---to date he has stuck his tee-shirt to his stomach, bend down to pick something up off the floor then asked for help finding his glue---stuck to the top of his woollen hat he wears in there--last night was a corker OMG still laughing now --he spilt superglue on his desk it went on his pipe stem which he then stuck to his lips he came through peeling the last of the glue og his lips-OMG I wished I had got a pic to share!!!

Morning well what can I say December already!!!
Holly had two mishaps yesterday ---first of all managed to get a comb so tangled in her hair she had to have it cut out and is now sporting a fringe!!!Then I got a call from her Mum could I pick her up from school as she had had an accident--a basketball had been thrown off the court and Holly tried to head it??? but it hit her on the side of her face and she ended with a headache and felt sick---mind you she managed all her tea and half a jar of picked gerkin spears!!! So no harm done there lol.
I have two DT posts today and the first one is for the "Seasons Greetings/Christmas/Winter" challenge at Love To Scrap sponsored by

CAS Christmas

First of all I would like to welcome my three new followers.
I have made a simple CAS Christmas card and flat suitable for posting.
Papers/small pearl from stash---babuble wreath/bow and sentiment were a craft mag freebie set which I had given soooo double freebie lol.
Now you have heard the saying the camera never lies----WELL--- they lied .

I took 14 different pics of this card in different places all over the house and ended up with just this one passable one--either the dark red was almost bright orange the gold looked silver and okay a couple were blurred --down to photographer and not phone I suspect!!!!

Lesson learnt??? dont make a card with red and gold if you need to tak a pic!!!!!!!!!!
The tiny bow was added at the bottom because the die slipped in machine and cut off bottom edge ooops.

Lest We Forget

Our Granddad Walter Jackman b 1881. Served in the Royal Naval Reserve 921/TS, served on various RN Trawlers mine sweeping in the Atlantic, blowing up mines for safe passage for the convoys. Luckily he survived-or I wouldn't have been here! but it wasn't an easy job (nor were any of them). He earned his 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory medal. I just thought he deserved a mention today.
John also had an Uncle who fought hand to hand with the Japanese on land and another whose boat was torpedoed by the Germans and they spent 10 days in an open boat.When he died Hedon Road was lined with people and John Prescott was there too.
My Dad was actually in a Japanese port when they came into the was and they had to sail out and escape under cover of darkness.

We are sponsored by The Papernest Dolls,Scrap'N'Dipity and Rick St Dennis whose "Katz" image sheet I used there are 4 images and some pawprints but I just used three of the images die-cut with Creative Dies scalloped circle,coloured with promarkers and made three Artist Trading Coins set onto teabags which are the perfect size for trading coins.
The textured stamps round the edges are from Lisa Horton which look a bit harsh even with 2nd stamping-think I need a grey ink pad.

Fishy Stencil

Morning and I have two DT posts today the second one is for the ATG challenge at Love to Craft-now you may remember I made a project for my sons birthday here- well this was the first attempt using textured paste through a That's Crafty stencil/Decoart Misters and Cosmic Shimmer Gold Gilding Polish-now I made it in landscape style ----THEN I had a senior moment and thought oh oh the frame is portrait syle so made this one HERE when I framed it realised frame could be used either way for goodness sake????? So I have now framed this one and have a spare pressie lol--hope you could follow that made sense in my head --well maybe not had to check three times lol.
