Hi... thanks for popping by...
On this white water coloured card stock by Crafter's Companion I created a background with a few Spectrum AQUA pens.  I used my heat tool to ensure the background was dry.  I stamped the image using  Woodware's 'Bubblebloom Lilly' stamp set (includes the stamp and sentiment) with WOW embossing powder in Metallic Gold Rich then heat set it.  Using a selection of Spectrum Aqua pens, water and a fine brush,  I coloured the flower and leaves.  I used Ranger Archival Ink Pad in Coffee to stamp the sentiment

Hi... thanks for popping by
This is an A5 white card base with a thin mat of antique copper foundation card by Creative Expressions then a mat of white card that I embossed with a folder called linen by SW for CE.
I used the 3 section only of the Shadow Box frame  and cut this out using antique copper card I also cut 2 tags with the same card.  I cut and embossed Happy Birthday in white card (die from my stash) and adhered to the first tag, added mounting foam to the back then adhered to the final tag.
I also cut 2 You're A Star sentiments from the Shadow Box Accessory - You're A Star by SW for CE and used a spray glue to adhere them together.  This was then placed below the images as shown.  From the same You're A Star accessories I cut and embossed one football, one rugby ball and the number 1.  I used felt pens to colour each one, added mounting foam to the backs and adhered them into the individual cubbies.  Using an Archival Ink Pad in coffee I stamped the sentiment, from Phill Martin's 'Baroque Border Sentiments' for Creative Expressions to the bottom of the card, added a few bronze sequins and placed a verse inside the card

Hi... thanks for popping by
I used ivory linen card for this and stamped the image, 'Sunflower Delight Stamp Set' by Creative Expressions with Ranger's Perfect Medium Clear Embossing Ink.  I then sprinkled Silver Metallic Embossing Powder by WOW over the image and used my heat tool to set it.  I used Spectrum noir pencils in yellow and  two shades of green to colour the flower and gently brushed a 'smoothie', from my stash that already had a little bit of ink on it (sorry, can't remember the colour) to brush a little colour on the background.
I created a wide border using the Double Pierced Squares by SW for CE to form a frame and adhered this to the main card


This beautiful 6 piece die set by SW for CE retails at £19.50, for my deal of the day I am offering it to you for only £16!!  This includes p&p and you will also get, FREE, the 2 Chloe stamps as shown.

I have only this one die set left so please be quick if you would like to purchase this great offer. 

Leave me a message and it will have to be first come first served I'm afraid.

I've enclosed a picture of my card, using the die set, to show just how gorgeous the set is

Hi... thanks for popping by...
Another shadow box card (I love using shadow boxes) BUT this shade of purple has been so difficult to capture on film... just as the title states! lol
This card, again, was for another friend's 50th birthday and I was very pleased with the layout and colour combo.  All the die cuts are shadow box accessories by SW for CE and I used a top folding, white, A5 card base that I matted with wisteria and white foundation card by CE and a beautiful shade of purple pearlised card by Crafter's Companion.  The final white layer was embossed, I added flat backed pearls to one perfume bottle, added Diamond Sprinkles to the middle and bottom bottle and painted the middle bottle top with a silver paint pen, the bottom perfume bottle I coloured the atomiser in purple.  Three flat backed pearls were adhered to the top right and bottom left of the card and I used the same two stamps, by Woodware, for the verse as I had on yesterday's card

Thank you for visiting my blog, your comments and questions are always welcome

Tomorrow I have a special offer available for you

Hi, thank you for popping by...
A fun card for today.  I used a white A4 card base, folded in half to create an A5 size card.  I matted and layered this with gold foundation card/CE and a black sparkle card/Crafter's Companion.  I used the frame from the Shadow Box Collection - In The Garden, by SW for CE and cut this out on gold foundation card and added mounting foam to the back, for dimension, I sprayed the frame with Stick and Spray by Crafter's Companion and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkle by CE over it then adhered it to some pretty paper, in a peachy taupe, from my stash. 
I used several elements from SW's Retail Therapy - Shadow Box Accessory Die Set and for the lipstick and nail polish I add Cosmic Shimmer Clear Varnish Lacquer to give the lipstick and nail polish a sheen.  I cut 4 layers of 'Just For You' in white foundation card, adhered these together then sprayed the sentiment, again with Crafter's Companion's Stick and Spray, and covered it with Diamond Sprinkles.
As this card was for a friend's 60th birthday I used my label maker to print 'Sexy 60' for the nail polish and 'Red Hot' for the lipstick.
I used 2 stamps by Woodware for the verse and stamped these onto white paper using Ranger's Distress Ink in 'Hickory Smoke', this colour gives a softer appearance compared to using a sharp black ink pad, as shown below

Don't forget that for a chance of owning yesterday's card you need to leave me a comment as I'll be announcing the winner tomorrow!
Enjoy the remains of the weekend
