Exploding box card.

Another quickie post, this time showing the exploding box card I made using The Most Wonderful Time of The Year Digi kit by Sarah Hurley at Jessica Sprague.
I can safely say it took me hours to do with all the fussy cutting but it really was worth it when my niece opened it.

I really hope you like this one as much as my niece did.

Thanks for popping by, C xx

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year!!

How exciting, 2 weeks today is Christmas Eve!! I love this time of year, always have, and always wondered if it is something to do with my name lol.

Yesterday I decided to finally make my Christmas cards that I have to post, and I used The Most Wonderful Time Digi Kit from Sarah Hurley.  As most of you know my style is mainly clean and simple, and I decided to stick with this for my Christmas cards. I adore the tree digi that I used on the front of this card and felt it really should be the focus of the card.  I printed it and the backing papers onto glossy photo paper and had to put the flash off when I took a picture, as it was just reflecting the flash too much!  I popped on some silver mirri card just to add something extra.

And I would like to say “Welcome to 31 Spook Street” . And the residents of this street are The Strange Family. I am soooo super excited and lucky to have had a sneaky play, and teased you all with a sneaky peek, with this spooktacular new range from Sarah Hurley.
I had a play with the Digi Kit to make this card, and a couple of the stamp sets are winging their way to me.  As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have them, especially when I saw the really cute cat, owl and ghosts wooooooo. Though best of all is this little chap that I have coloured as he is called “Malcolm Strange” and I adore him, nothing to do with the fact my hubby is called Malcolm 😉 The digis in the set are coloured or black and white, so ideal if you want to make a quick card, or like me want to create a scene with one or more of the characters. I popped Poe the Owl and Muffin the Cat in, just so Malcolm wasn’t alone.  You may have noticed the awesome skulls and bones on the background paper, that is also from the set and is featured in different colours, and they all work perfectly together.

The seasons are changing, yippeeee, and Halloween is on its way.  And to celebrate this Sarah Hurley will be launching a brand new exciting range!! But, I have been playing with some of the kit (I know, how lucky am I?) and made something really cool!

I can’t show you the completed project yet incase Sarah confiscates my kit!!! Though I will share a sneak peek of it.

How amazing are the wee skulls and bones…and there is a cat 😀
I hope you are looking forward to the new kit, and I can’t wait to share the completed project x

Let’s look Through The Craft Room Door…

And this week I am delighted to be the Guest Designer over at Through The Craft Room Door, and the theme this week as always, is “Anything Goes” and the prize is from Oozak.

I thought I would make a card for any occasion and used the gorgeous hand drawn Roses Digi Stamps from  Sarah Hurley, I coloured it using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and fussy cut it out. I made the background paper using a stamp from Stampin Up and distressed the edges with some pink ink. I added a sentiment from Stampin Up and some ribbon and pearls. The rose is on 1mm foam to give the card some dimension.
