Woodland wonders

Hi  all its Tania here with my first project over at
 Sarah Hurley 365 
I love using stamps but often try and  use them a little differently.
Today I will be using Woodland Wonders Doe stamp set , paper from Woodland wonders in the wood digi set and letters from Block alpha stamp set.

I have used the tree stamp and stamped it a 12, 3, 6 & 9 (if looking at a clock) and then  coloured it with promarkers. Each tree represents a season. I then added glitter glue to co-ordinate with the tree. To finish off the card I added a squirrel.
I then fussy cut the tree shape out and mounted it on black card. 

I mounted  the tree topper onto footprint paper.
I used the Alpha stamps to stamp out seasons greetings. This could be used for  any type 
of card from birthday to thank you. 
Thank you for stopping by.
If you have any questions please ask and I will let you know.

Pick of the week at Dragons Den

Hi Folks it's Tania here with my pick of the week over at Dragons Den.
Where do the weeks keep going
We are nearly through the first month of the year
The image that I have used has come from the fabulous Stamping Dragon Designs Shop .

There are some wonderful images that you can purchase and once you buy one you will be hooked.

For my image today  I have chosen butterfly sticker
Butterfly Stickers
Such a stunning set of images I decided to use  the butterfly with the pink flowers.

 I printed the image 4 times. The first image I cut out using a spellbinder die but to ensure I didn't spoil the image I cut around the pieces of the image that could be spoilt.
I then fussy cut the rest of the images and decoupaged them up.
To finish the card  I mounted it onto pink card which I had embossed with a butterfly embossing folder and added lace and pearls.
At the moment I have not added a sentiment, but this card could be used for a bithrday or a thank you card. 

Make sure you pop on over to the Shop and have a browse , there is a great selection of  Images available for you to choose from.

We also have a Stamping Dragon Facebook Group , where we have lots of fun , inspiration for you , mini challenges and lots , lots more, so why not come over and see us.

Well that's  it from me for today, have a wonderful festive break.
 Gwyneth will be bringing you the next
 Pick of the Week next Monday ,
See you soon
