Something Altered

This weeks project in La La Land is something altered, and after scratching my head for a week i decided to alter a frame. I used Christmas Lantern Marci  and paper pieced her with graphic 45 papers.
I also used the candle out of the Bookstack Set Rubber stamp and coloured it with copics. I used texture paste on the  Ornate Snowflake Die  and Pretty Poinsettia Die  for a snowy effect and added pearls. I cut a Christmas sentiment with the Folding Banners DIe and added that to some christmas cut- outs. Texture paste, pearls and glitter was added to the Christmas tree to decorate it. 
I coloured Marci and the candle with copics.

Pink Christmas

Today is all about pink and Christmas. I used Christmas Lantern Marci  stamp and several La-La Land Craft Dies  to create a Christmas card. I cut two of the  Heart Doily Border Die and joined them together. The  Heart Snowflakes Die made a perfect star for the Christmas Tree Die and the Holly Flourish Die gave the perfect finishing touches to the card.
I glittered the Christmas tree and used pearls, lace and ribbons to give the card sparkle.

Steampunk Gift Bag

My Steampunk Gift Bag started with a roll of tape, black cardstock, copics, embossing folders and chipboard

After giving my bigshot a work out i had enough chipboard bits and pieces to add to the bag.....cogs and flourishes were glued under the tape and then i used a stylus to shape the tape around the chipboard pieces. I then coloured the bag using copics
C1, C3, C5, C7. C9, C10 BV02 BV04, BV08 and then sanded the raised areas.
I added chains and charms to the side as well as some brads and staples.
Eyelets, ribbons and a bow with a black rose completed the finished look. 
View of the back which has been embossed with several different embossing folders.
