The background to this sparkly card is actually white although it looks as if it's a pink hue!

A very easy card to make using a selection of dies and coloured card

Autumnal Tree


Thank you for popping by...
I think today's card would be ideal for a
male recipient, what do you think?

I started with a piece of A4 copper card by Creative Expressions and folded it to make an A5.  I added a mat of white card and another of the copper but I embossed the copper card using Celtic Flower by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions

I stamped the tree (an old one from my stash) using Perfect Medium by Ranger, coated it with WOW Copper embossing powder then drew a few lines on the tree trunk to give some definition

The Warm Wishes is from a freebie set and was also stamped and embossed the same as the tree

Using shrink plastic I stamped and embossed several leaves from the same freebie pack using WOW Copper embossing powder and added a little red to one leaf and black to another for contrast.  These were adhered around the tree base and one leaf to the tree branch

To complete I lightly dusted a little Mowed Lawn Distressing Ink by Ranger to and around the tree base, a little Broken China Distressing Ink by Ranger to the top left corner of the card.  I then drew a 'fussy' thin border to finish

Baubles & Glitter

Baubles & Glitter

Hi... thank you for popping by

I love this aqua coloured card!

I started with a white 7"x7" card base and adding the first mat then I used adhesive spray on the final white mat and coated it with glitter jewels

The baubles are from a 2015 collection and the poinsettia dies are from my stash

I stamped the sentiment  and attached all the elements to my card

Clarity Blog Challenge 45 - Blast From The Past

Hi, thank you for popping in on this very cold and miserable day!

I've made this card to enter into Clarity's Challenge Blog

It's an A5 card and I stamped the verse then masked it to enable me to stamp the floral image, this was then masked and I used a distress ink to colour the background

To finish I spritz the card with water then removed both masks

I am entering this card into Clarity's Challenge Blog - 'Blast From The Past'

Hi... thanks for popping by!

This is an 8"8" card and I've used a pearlised ivory card by Crafter's Companion and matted this with a blue card by Creative Expressions

A very easy and quick card to make using 4 dies, all by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions

Come the new year I will be introducing video tutorials, give-a-ways and greatly reduced craft items that are too good to miss!

That's all for today

Thank you for visiting

Good morning!  Thank you for popping by

I loved making this Christmas card, especially as it's going to be winging its way to my much loved auntie in Canada!

Whilst I know the colours are not of the traditional ones you expect to see I so love the delicacy of the aqua card and tend to use it quite often!

The dies are from the 2015 collection by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  I've also used Iced Snow and Diamond Sprinkles from their range too.  I also added a few silver sequins, from my stash,  onto the background

The card is an 8"x8"

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting

Hi... thanks for popping by

I made this card for a blog challenge

I started with an A4 white card base, scored to make an A5 size card then scored the top piece to create a fold and trimmed the card at an angle as shown

I then embossed another piece of white card using a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities EL-008 embossing folder

This was then covered with Metallic Wax Patina Copper, 'polishing' when covered.  Mounting foam was added to the back of the card and attached to the card inside as shown

The clock faces are from my stash and attached to the card with brads by Hobby House, as are the two metal clocks

To finish I typed the sentiment and gently added a little contrasting colour to it

All for now

Thank you for visiting

Hi, thanks for popping by
Using a white card base I added thin layers of black and white card finishing with black card

 I then embossed a pretty pink paper from my stash and distressed the edges
I coloured a piece of tack cloth using a distress ink pad in Victorian Velvet by Ranger and adhered this to the card as well as creating a more jiggered edge to the bottom right side
In black card I cut and embossed a circle using one of my 'old' dies from Spellbinders and adhered it on top of the tack cloth

The sentiment sat on a white on white cut and embossed design by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and I lightly coloured part of it using the Victorian Velvet ink pad

I made several flowers in various shades of pink, cut and embossed 1 white and 2 black  flourishes.  These were then positioned onto my card  as well as a few crystal stems

Halloween Fun

Hi, thanks for popping by

I made today's card as my entry in

Fantasy Stampers Challenge #74
'Halloween Fun'

This is a 6"x6" white card base with an orange and black mat.  I embossed the top layer using a wall effect embossing folder and also cut and embossed 2 bats

Stamps by Chloe ~ 'Bare Tree' was stamped onto black card and embossed with WOW Black Twinkle Embossing Powder.  I then 'fussy cut' the tree

I drew the dancing skeletons and, again, 'fussy cut' them to place on my card

The card was completed using stock from my stash

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