A Pepper fireside scene

I don't know about you but I just love the 'Pepper and Friends' range by Trimcraft.  There's a lovely Christmas Party edition of the range and there's plenty of papers, decoupage and stamps etc available on Ebay.  I ordered some of the 8 x 8 papers and a small pack of the decoupage sheets and was really impressed with the quality.  Many of the papers have a lovely glittery finish and there are some lovely designs.
I think the layout is pretty self explanatory but I've used a sentiment stamp from my Daisy and Dandelion stamps to make the finishing touch.

The decoupage sheets were pre-cut which always makes things easier.  I always use an old nail file to gently sand around the edges of each layer, this just helps to remove any jagged bits from where they were attached to the main sheet.

Thanks for stopping by! x

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

  3. Hi Rachel!
    Welcome to blogger!
    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
    I wouldn't really know where to start with promarkers, I'm such a pencil girl, but "crafty christine" does some amazing things with them.You ought to check her out. She designs for "I love promarkers" which I see you already have on your sidebar so you may know here already. :-)
    For the sky I simply use a blue pencil and goo gone or baby oil. There's a tutorial on it at the top of my blog page. It's really pretty simple.
    I hope to see you around!

  4. Hi Rachel, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog... I'm afraid I cheated and bought those card blanks! They're Craftwork Cards ones, but I think I bought them from The Glitter Pot.
