Christmas Joy


Hi everyone, please accept my apologies for not posting for a while, really must make more of an
effort, but have been rather busy.   This is one of my first xmas cards, l chose a 6 x 6 pale blue base
card and trimmed a small amount off the front edge,  the piece l trimmed l inked the edges with
distressed ink colour Barn Door, and attached to the inside edge. l embossed the red matt using my
cuttlebug master builder, holly corner, the stamped image is one of Crafters Companion, Humphrey
set, coloured with my Spectrum Noirs and also stamped the stocking out three times to embellish
the right side, finshed off with the sentiment.
I do hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my blog, any comments very welcome.

Andrea's 40th

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying your crafting, here is my latest card, once again one l was commisioned  to make.
The person it was for is a strong Liverpool F.C. supporter, last year l made one football themed, although she is female.  So this card is kept to the team colours, an A5 landscape scalloped card, inked with Worn Lipstick distressed ink, and the image was a Strawberry kisses stamp from Crafters Companion, coloured with my Spectrum Noirs, and then cut with a die shape, and once again distress
inked on the edges, the large matt of co-ordinations card was embossed with my new 8 x 8 folder of large dots and sanded back. Once again l used my Cricut machine for the letters and numbers. Her Mum who ordered it was very pleased with it and l do hope you like it too.
Many thanks again for taking a look at my blog, please leave any comments.

Louise & Clive's Wed.

Hello everyone, here's another card l made for a friends wedding in September.
 It is yet another 8 x 8 white scalloped base card, l used blue card for matting and layering as she got married in blue, and was butterfly themed, thus l chose to use an embossing folder for the topper which had the scrolls and butterflies, l used Frayed Burlap distressed ink to enhance the scrolls and also the car, which is l believe a Marianne die, l put two pieces of blue card into the same folder, just where the butterflies are, then cut them out to embellish. The letters were cut with....yes you've guessed it , my Cricut machine.
Many thanks for taking a look at my blog, hope you like what you see.

Silver Wedding

Hi everyone, sorry its been a while since l last posted, have been rather busy replenishing my stock for my next booking for my craft stall.
I made this card for my son and his wife for their silver wedding, it is a 8 x 8 scalloped white card, and embossed Centura white pearlescent with my new 8 x 8 swirl embossing folder and matted this onto silver mirror card. I then used my dies to cut the hearts, embossed the silver with a dotty folder, and topped with another heart cut from the same pearlescent card, wrapped a ribbon around, added a bow with a silver glitter gem in the centre. The numbers and initials were cut with my Cricut machine. They spent their anniversary in Tunisia, but were chuffed to bits with it when they returned home, and said they were going to treasure it. 
Hope you like what l have posted and please visit again....Thank You

Sea-life card

Hi everyone, this is my latest card, the stamps l used are the ones from the September issue from Dimension Stamps project club, starting with an A5 landscape white base card, matt and layered with black, for the next layer l chose an aqua colour and stamped with the reeds and put thro my new 8 x 8 embossing folder of large dots. Then stamped and coloured the images and cut out to place around the card to creat an underwater scene, finished off with the text also from the stamp set. Could be quite useful for someone who has an aquarium.  Hope you like what you see and thank you for taking the time to take a look at my blog, all comments are welcome.
