Good Luck/Leaving

A colleague is leaving work soon so I made this card for them. I thought the image was quite sweet with the packing case.

I have used Forever Friends backing paper and imge from the Triple CD. Craftwork cards 6 x 6 square card and pink cardstock. I have used the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder and Honey and Hugs rub on letters. The ribbon was originally white but I used promarkers to colour it to match my project.

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave.

Take care!

Going Dotty!

Hi all,

Just a quick Tilda card made from leftovers (again lol!)

White square card (Craftwork cards), Red cardstock.

The papers were from a paper stack called 'Sweet Wishes' which came with Papercraft Essentials magazine a while ago now.

Have added a bought sentiment which was originally silver but was coloured with promarkers. Tilda image was also coloured with promarkers.
The ribbon and gems were from my stash.

Well not much else happening at the mo so off to make some more cards. Back at work next week so won't have time then lol!

First Christmas card

Evening everyone. Not been around for a while. Had to make a challenge card so I thought I would share it with you.

It is my first Christmas card..

I made this card using mainly elements from the Forever Friends Retro Christmas CD. The papers, image and sentiment all came from the CD. (sorry the picture isn't brilliant)

I used a bit of Diamond Sparkles glitter but the only other extras were the ribbon and some sequin snowflakes. (from stash)

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment if you wish. (They are always appreciated)

Bye for now

Everything is Hunkydory!

Hello again.

I have just recently made this card using all things Hunkydory.  Well the Silk Art Card and Sentiments anyway.  Unfortunately though - I'm no great shakes at taking pictures so the sentiments are hard to read.  One says 'Precious few are friends like you' and the other reads 'You are the pick of the bunch'

I have mounted the 'Raspberry' silk art card onto Silver mirror board.  I have also used the Papermania 'Victorian Fleur' embossing folder for the centre panels. The card black was made from a cut-down A4 sheet and now measures 6" x 6".

This is quite a different look for me as I usually go for the cutesie images (e.g Tatty Ted and Forever Friends etc) but I am quite pleased with this so might try a few more different styles.

Thanks so much for visiting and any comments you may leave are much appreciated.

See you soon

Doesn't time fly??

Well - here I am again.  I really do need to visit/post more often but the time just flies and before you know it - a month has gone by lol.

Anyhoo, I thought I would share my latest cards with you.  This Tilda card has been made using leftovers in my stash. Tilda herself has been coloured in and waiting patiently for ages to be used on a card. So whilst I was sorting a few things out, I found the papers to go with her.

I have used Dried Marigold distress ink around the image and the sentiment.  However, because these are two different card types, the effect/colour is different.  The paper at the back is from K & Co and the paper at the front came free with a magazine. 

The flowers were originally yellow and white but i changed the colour with a Ginger promarker (Am waiting for my Flexmarkers and getting impatient).  Finished with a papermania capsules ribbon (from the original yellow set that came in the goody bag a couple of years ago.

The next card is a wedding card I made.  Its using Papermania Confetti backing paper and a Little Claire stamp.  The flowers were from Wild Orchid and the heart shapes were cut using the new Xcut dies.

The lace was bought from a craft stall in Fleetwood market.  They had lots with different coloured edges.

So - that's what I've been up to for now.  Must get cracking on the Christmas cards I think - everyone's leaving me behind.  Hope to be back soon with more cards - just need a push!

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you may leave.

See ya soon
