Did you know, That’s Crafty have released some new items which they showcased on HOCHANDA on Monday. In anticipation of their release, the DT received a variety of new products to play with. One item I received is the quite fabulous MDF Triptych Castle. This is the castle when opened but if you are interested, there are several photos, of the castle when the doors are closed, the rear and detail photos.
If you are interested, all details can be viewed HERE.

For my DT post over at That’s Crafty I have laid the hearts aside, for this week anyway (!) to share this. Well, it is a sneaky peek of what I am sharing at That’s Crafty.
It was fun pairing up Catherine Moore’s Character Construction stamp with PaperArtsy stamps to create this art doll on a That’s Crafty substrate.

I promise this isn’t too long a post, a few photographs but short on words as I know, even though we have said goodbye to Christmas 2015, it is still a busy time of the year.
One of the gifts I made this Christmas is this pendant, centred around a Prima Relics and Artifacts’ heart – have I mentioned how much I have fallen in love with this range of products!!! I knew the style I had in mind so I had a root amongst some of my favourite stamps from The Stampsmith, which I am sad to say, haven’t been inked up for a wee while. After the lengthy decision of which image would best suit the shape of the heart I opted for this, one of my all time favourite Stampsmith stamps (with Ophelia possibly being my absolute favourite Stampsmith stamp.)
Frescos helped me achieve the look I was aiming for on the heart, almost a stone like appearance,with simple embellishments of beautiful vintage lace and rhinestones and a pearl all set on a long chain with a decorative closure.
There is a little secret to this pendant. Flip it over and there is a message on the rear. The wearer doesn’t need to display this side of the heart but kept close to her heart she will remember that many, many people know she has a loving heart and a dear friend to so many.
(The words above are from PaperArtsy Eclectica ESN (Sara Naumann) along with stamped music score which I quickly distressed before heat setting and sealing. Also, if you are interested in the Relic and Artifacts heart, you can source some of the product range at PaperArtsy.
I hope to squeeze in one more blog post for 2015 which I will share on Hogmanay. Until then, many thanks for your visit to this blog post.

In this post I am sharing one of the cards I have published in the latest issue of The Stampers’ Sampler, a card I submitted to the Holiday Happenings Challenge Call.
If you are a regular visitor then you probably recognise the stamp on this card, She Loves Snowflakes , as I have already shared a wee hanging with this stamp, HERE.
This card has a very simple colour palette of Kraft, winter white and black but it also has lots of sparkle and shimmer!
Stencilled snowflakes with one of my all time favourite mediums for artwork relating to this time of the year, which can be found here at That’s Crafty, Maimeri Iridescent Paste. This is the paste I have been using on all the mittens I’ve made recently.The sparkle appears in different forms, some I cannot now remember (!) but there is definitely Crystal Glamour Dust (DecoArt), Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Flakes (both available from That’s Crafty) and a dash of vintage glass glitter.
The sentiments are from another wonderful Redlead stamp, HERE, Stamp Some Tape:- Snowflakes and Christmas Greeting. It is such a brilliant idea of two stamps in a set with the idea that you can stamp your own tape. So one design is snowflakes and the other is Christmas Greeting. Click the link to discover what they actually look like. With the Christmas Greeting stamp it means you can stamp it to appear as a piece of tape or as I did for this card, stamp onto cardstock (Kraft painted with Gesso) and then cut into strips.It looks as though I still have a fair few festive posts to share with you. I might hold the more winter themed posts to share into the New Year. Funny how to my mind, once Christmas is over and done with, I seem to think it has to be the end of all winter artwork, moving in my mind onto more Spring like style or Valentine’s yet it will still be the middle of winter in my part of the world!
(At the time of drafting this blog post, Redlead had a Christmas Greetings discount code of 30%)

All of a sudden it feels as though Christmas is nearly here and the realisation that I still have a few festive pieces to share.
Last year I was lucky enough to receive some beautiful Redlead Paperwork Christmas themed stamps to play with, including She Loves Snowflakes.
With this delightful stamp with the sweetest little girl surrounded by a flurry of pretty snowflakes, I made this wee hanging. The handmade paper, with the little white dots, brought to mind snow and when torn it created the fluffiest of edges, perfect for adding some softness to the panel and as a way of tying in with the stamped image, with the snowflake background. To add to the flurry I also scattered diamond glass glitter and a dash of the teeniest tiniest pearl stickers.This lovely sentiment is available on this particular set HERE (also from Redlead Paperworks). I so love this set because the sentiments are just a little bit different to the normal Christmas/festive greetings. I’ve been dipping into this set many times for Christmas 2015. I can just imagine this sweet girl donning her pristine ice skates to skate on the local frozen lake with her friends, catching falling snowflakes on their tongues. I can almost hear their giggles ringing sweetly through the frosty air!Sharon and Chris at Redlead are so productive, they are constantly releasing new products whether new stamps, collage sheets, chipboard or wooden items. Their on-line store is a treasure trove of goodies.
Many thanks for your visit. I always appreciate them.
