Foamiran Christmas Decoration

Hiya Everyone,
I hope that you are all set for Christmas? This month is very hectic for me and I haven't had a lot of time to craft.
I have a little project that I would like to share with you.
I purchased a few MDF hearts and other shapes from ebay a while ago to spend some time crafting with my daughter. Ashleigh will be home from university soon and we wanted to create a few, home made Christmas tree decorations for our new Christmas Tree.
We didn't have a tree last year, as I had just had another operation on my leg and needed the Christmas tree space, for my walking aid and wheel chair.
Anyway, enough of me Waffling on he he.
I discovered Foamiran on Noor Design and thought I would try out a sheet to see if I liked it.
Well....I am now addicted and have ordered more sheets in different colours, I really urge you to try it out!
There are lots of tutorials on Youtube to give you an idea of what you can make.

 A peek at all the layers!

I made this large poinsettia, from one of my dies, Marianne dies I think. It is six layers, I distressed it a little and added a few pearl stamens and lovely bling. It is the perfect size for my MDF heart, which I covered with Maja Christmas paper.
I also made the little Christmas branches, I cut a strip of paper and snipped it right along one of the longer edges and glued it to a piece of stiff wire and carefully wrapped it around the wire, to the bottom and hey presto you have a little Christmas branch!!!
I will pop back soon to share our other Christmas Tree Decorations!
Have a fabulous day!

New Challenge at Marvelous Magnolia

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to tell you about the new challenge theme over at
 Marvelous Magnolia and the new theme is Anything Christmas.
So if you haven't had chance to finish all of your Christmas cards, its a great opportunity to  catch up and make a card or two for our challenge he he!

Our Sponsor is Petal Lu!!!
I have coloured up Tilda with Little Rudolph with Copics. I like to mix my colouring mediums, some times using DI's and Prisma Pencils on occasion too!
Please Pop over and see the DTs stunning creations!!!
Here is my card...

I have used Maja design papers, and obviously WOC florals. I have flocked Tilda's coat to imitate fur and stamped a few extra snow flakes around her.

I am loving all these hessian ribbons at the moment, they are just divine. The bling in the middle of the bow is from Live and Love Crafts, so is the chipboard sentiment and the gorgeous ivory pleated netting is from Noor Design.

Just another close up of Tilda and all the beautiful florals, berries and leaves.
Pleas pop by our challenge today, we cant wait to see your beautiful creations!!!
Take care, Crafty Cuddles
