Sketch and Stash challenge and a tag box

sn-gorjuss-s&s1 It's been ages since I used one of the Gorjuss Girls stamps (I don't think I have even inked up all the ones from the first set yet, how bad am I!).

I had to use this delish Heidi Grace paper - it's been sat in the pile shouting to be used lol. I picked it up from The Hobby House at Newbury. Love the soft aqua shades, so pretty. I've used the sketch on Sketch and Stash challenge for this card but once again I forgot to post it so have missed the challenge (what am I like!!)

I followed the sketch more or less thru to the inside of the card.

I got these delish felt snowflakes from Stampin Up last year and can't even remember if I used them yet but they were a perfect colour match for the new Heidi Grace papers.

Recipe:
Stamp: Sugar Nellie
Papers: Heidi Grace from The Hobby House
Tools: Sewing machine, Stampin Up corner punch
Embellies: Felt snowflakes Stampin Up, charms, brads etc all from The Hobby House

I have a little tag box to share , Jenny from Create4Fun emailed me the link to the pattern and asked if I liked the pattern if I could make up the box. I loved it and had to make it right away - it's so cute, just wish I had seen this when making thank you presents for Ben's teachers. Never mind, it's one to keep and use for next year. I might even make up some of these for the little Xmas presents. You can find the link to the free pattern here. It was so quick and easy to make up too, one sheet of A4 card, three bits of DST and the rest from my scraps drawer and job done.

The papers were from my scraps box, the image is Inky Impressions Angelica's Daydream from Create4Fun, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, rest of stuff from stash.

  28. Hi Bev, Gorgeous work as always. I would actually like to ask you a question. In some of your past posts, you mention that you have coloured with Ranger Distress Pads. I wonder what tool you use to catch the colour in the finer areas of your image. I am waiting to try this so hopefully I will get the answer from you. Keep up the great work.
    Kind Regards,
    Bev L...(Australia).
