Hi... thanks for popping by
I hope you enjoy my blog and get a little inspiration from my cards.
Your comments are always welcome...

I really love this particular embossing folder by Couture Creations, namely 'Breeze'.  You may remember another card I used a few days ago with the same folder!  I also have another card using it again and will post that tomorrow.
Once I embossed the design onto coconut white foundation card by CE, I used Spectrum AQUA Pen in 'Peach' to add just a little colour to the bottom of each petal, then with a water brush I pulled the colour over each petal.  I heat dried the petals add applied Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue using the fine line brush by CE then sprinkled Glamour Dust by DecoArt over each petal.  This was then adhered to pink card creating a thin layer of colour and added to a white 5"x7" base card.
The sentiment is from John Lockwood's Pierced Flag Sentiments Stamp Set for CE.  I stamped this onto coconut white card using Adirondack 'Slate' Dye Pad by Ranger.  I used the smaller Pierced Flags by SW for CE then the next larger size for the pink card creating a border.  Mounting foam was attached to the back and adhered to the top of the card with an addition of 3 flat back pearls adhered to the bottom right

If you would like to give this card a new home just leave me a comment and I will announce the winner on Monday

Have a good weekend...

Hi friends.... thanks for popping by
I used a Clarity Stamp for the heart image and the sentiment for today's card.  Stamped them onto ivory card then used ProMarkers in red and grey to colour the large heart and red only for the smaller heart.
Thin mats of red and ivory card were applied and I then adhered these onto a white 5x7" card.

Tomorrow is Saturday Special Give Away so if you would like to give tomorrow's card a new home  be sure to pop back then, leave me a comment and your name will be added to Name Picker on Monday morning and I'll announce the winner

This is another quick make card, you could have several pre-cut, embossed and stamped with your choice of sentiment and coloured card and stored with an envelope ready 'to go'.
I have used coconut white, milk and baby blue foundation card by CE.  The embossing folder is 'Breeze' by Couture Creations, the stamp by Phill Martin from his Sentimentally Yours Range, the gems are from my own stash.
The finished card measures 5"x7"

Hi... thanks for popping by...
Another quick card to make and ideal as a male card.
I scored an A4 piece of navy foundation card by CE in half to give me an A5 size then added a thin mat of white foundation card from CE's range.  I secured two pieces of white ribbon to the back of the final mat of navy card  prior to adhering this to the card base.  Using the double pierced square dies by SW for CE I chose 3 different sizes of dies to create the focal points of the card and on the top pieces of white card I used a selection of  Phill Martin's 'Sentimentally Yours' stamps to stamp the sentiment using Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in 'hickory smoke'

Hi... thanks for popping by
This is a DL size card with mat and layers of black and white card.  I cut and embossed the filigree vase by Spellbinders for CE on white card without using the outside cutting edge.  I then made a cut on the top of the vase using a craft knife.  The flowers are also dies by Spellbinders and I cut and embossed these in black card and placed them through the top of the vase and adhered them in place.
A very quick card to make
 I do appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog and leaving me a comment, thank you

Happy start to the week bloggers and thanks for popping by...
A new challenge starts today at 'Crafty Cardmakers', the theme being 'texture' and this is my contribution as part of the design team.  Take a visit to the blog and see the fabulous ideas and creations from the design team members.
My card is an 8" square with several mat and layers in white and purple.  I used a mask to create the main focal point, and my apologies as I can't find the name of it anywhere!  I applied Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste by Creative Expressions (CE) over the mask then carefully removed it to allow the texture paste to dry.  I used a Memory Box Die to cut the smaller focal point, 2 in purple card and 1in white card, overlapped them slightly and once the texture paste was dry I adhered the swirls to the card.  The sentiment is from my stash and stamped onto vellum.  A finishing touch of purple gems to two of the corners completes the card
Thank you for visiting my blog, I always look forward to reading your comments...
