Wow, I just have to share with you these stunning Christmas decorations made by Christina. And besides being so beautiful, what caught my eye.... she added Card Candi at the top by the ribbon bows.

As Card Candi is my favorite as present and they are so easy and fun to use, I thought why not show you a tutorial of how to make flowers with any of the plain colours.

Red, Green and Yellow

Good Afternoon

Marika here.  I am greeting you from a cold Cape Town, the sun was shinning so brightly this morning that I thought that we will have another sunny day, but no such luck. 

I made a card with a lovely freebie stamp that I received with my latest Papercraft Essentials magazine. This is one of the most beautiful little stamps that I have yet to receive with a magazine. I just love this little winged girl. I used some red pearls on the outside of the scalloped circle.

A close-up of the stamp.  The stamp is from the Wee Stamps and was designed exclusive for Papercraft Essential magazine.  I put some Glitzin Glamour over the wings, just for that little bit of bling.


That's all from me.  Have a great weekend.



This card was made with my friend Brenda in mind. I have not seen her for ages, but we stay in contact on a regular basis. I have promised myself that we will go and visit as soon as it gets warmer and I can get around with a reliable vehicle again.

This card was made using Passionate Coutre Texture card stock as backing. On top is metallic card stock that I punched with a corner punch ages ago from a friends stash.
The white card stock is from Cutmates and cut to a oval using a Simply 2 die 4 die 

Now the challenging part:
I have not done much colouring of any sorts, so decided I need to start brushing up sometime. The corset picture printed on a label printer and coloured with a permanent marker. Well, that alone was a challenge on its on :-) as it makes streaks if you don't colour it right as the label paper is a glossy paper and takes long to dry. Ok, so after ditching the 1st picture, tried again and learned a lesson yippy :-)
