Christmas in Sepia with Charlie's Ark

Hi everyone, hope you are all well on the way in your Christmas card making, unlike me who hasn't even started yet!

I have really enjoyed learning different techniques to add to my enjoyment of crafting. It never ceases to amaze how people come up with such different ways of using products.

The cards toppers used this week are all to do with the totally cute images of Charlie and his pals.

The sepia range is adorable and can be used either to place onto card stock as they are or in this weeks show we learn from Sheena just how she would place her own artistic mark onto the range.
If like me you fall totally in love with this card don't forget to tune in and get the low down on just exactly how you too can achieve creative heights that you would never have thought possible.
Don't you just love the way crafters share ideas and skills to help us all in our journey towards creativity. Until next week take care and stay well.
Lots of love Noreen.

Charlie's Ark Christmas

Good Monday Morning~ We're you able to view the latest Flower Soft Video on the Charlie's Ark Products? If not, follow the link on the site to Flower Soft TV to check it out! I had a blast with the Charlie's Ark The Night Before Christmas Creative Kit. With lots of toppers and 3D toppers, the possibilities are endless! I whipped this card up quite quickly, using foam tape between the layers to give them some dimension!

The card just comes to life with this 3-dimensional effect! To top it off, I used some Ultrafine Strawberry, Polar White and Ultra Fine Sand. I hope you enjoyed this project and I'll see you next week with some more fun ideas!

Die cut and Creative Kits? Sounds like bliss!

How adorable is Charlie and his pals? I have been lucky enough to demonstrate these fantastic kits to crafters at some of the consumer shows here in the UK. Time after time I would hear,"adorable, cute, he reminds me of..., oh and die cut too?"

These cute,beautifully illustrated toppers make up into totally unique cards that anyone would be proud to send or own.

This happy little card was created using the Charlie's Ark Creative Kit, Christmas with Friends. You will be amazed at the treasures contained inside this pack.... toppers, backing papers, die cut decoupage/paper tole, sentiments, inserts, poems, sentiment ribbons, all beautifully die cut for you ready to start to work with.

Materials used;
Charlie's Ark Creative Kit, Christmas with Friends.
Foam pads/Pop dots.
Card stock.
Distress ink.
Paint brush.

What I love about crafting is that there always seems to be an endless way that we can then put our " own mark" onto our creations.

For a perfect example of this, tune in to see the great technique that Sheena shares with us in this weeks

The "icing on the cake" ( as we would say in the U.K.) is the fact that these images are then die cut with great precision to the most amazing standard! The images are then so easily popped out from the sheet to decoupage/paper tole that creating the most stunning card is totally stress free and in fact very relaxing to do.

I just know that once you have these in your hands you will sooo enjoy the magic they create!

Until we chat again, take care and stay well,

lots of love Noreen.

Just a little sprinkle.........

So sorry to be late posting! I've been a little preoccupied lately and well, it's just been one of those days!!!! It's nice to sit down at the computer and relax for a bit.

I wanted to share a simple project with you today. I love making one layer cards with lots of dimension. It allows for reg postage! This is a card that we made at my card class last week.
The ladies were amazed how much dimension that you can create with masking techniques and they LOVED how the Polar White Flower Soft gave an added touch to this design.

Hope that you have a wonderful day!

I Love Snow!

Yes I really do love snow! I get pretty fed up with it very soon afterwards but the first gorgeous white fall of snow is always a magical thing to me.

So when I get to play with Polar White Diamond Range Flower Soft to make gorgeous snow shaker cards then I couldn't be happier!

The Charlies's Ark "I love snow" stamp is just great to work with. Take a look at this weeks to get some ideas on just how adaptable this stamp really can be.

Sheena once again will inspire and delight with her version of Charlie in the snow, whilst I am showing you something just a little bit different.

Ever wondered how you could colour in a stamp without using any Copics, Pro Markers, water colour pencils or anything like that? Tune in this week and you'll see just how easy it is to do!

Lots of love until next week,

Hugs, Noreen
