Triple Rose

Hi Everyone, hope you are all busy crafting........
My card for today is one that l made using the Zentangle effect, l saw it Mel working with it on Create and Craft and thought l would give it a go. The main card is black and landscape, l then
matted white that l had put through my dotty embossing folder then inked the edges with Worn
Lipstick to give definition. The three toppers l traced through a brass stencil in my stash, Zentangled
two in black and one in red and green, matt them onto black and placed them with the red and green one in the centre. Finished off with some card candy in both pink and black.
Thank You for visiting my blog and if you have any comments please leave them.

Baby Girl

My card for today is a 8 x 8 scalloped card, and l covered with some spotty paper from my stash trimming the edges flush with the card, then tinted with Worn Lipstick distressed ink. The next layer was die cut, using my Grand nestie, from some plain pink card and put on an angle. The next layer
was also die cut from striped card. The topper is a Digi-stamp and coloured with both Promarkers
and Spectrum Noirs, and again die cut. I wrapped a white ribbon around the striped matt twice and
added a double bow with an attached baby charm.  I am really pleased with this card, and hope you
feel the same....Thank You for visiting my blog and if you wish to leave any comments they would

Parchment floral

This card is a result from "playing" with my dies and parchment. I passed a course in parchment and love the finished effect, tho very intricate to do, especially the lace work.
I decided to have a go at using my dies with the parchment, and this is how it turned out, not bad for
the first time. For the main matt l used the waste from the die cutting, to ink through using my distressed ink...Shaded Lilac...l then stamped the sentiment onto parchment again and die cut it, it even embossed the dots. Embellished with the die cut flowers in a darker toning lilac, and a few
Gems.  I quite like the delicate look, a nice change, and a lot easier than Parchment craft the traditional way.  Many Thanks for taking a look and any comment would be welcome.

Blue Tit

Hi Everyone
Sorry for not posting as often, but had quite a few things to see to, Mum not been too well, and
also have baby-sat my Grt. Grandson, ......anyway back to my card for today.
The main card is black and is landscape, using some yellow l cut the first matt with my Xcut dies,
then cut another in black, and then the stamped image, which was stamped onto watercolour card,
after using my watercolour pencils l used Scattered Straw distressed ink to colour the edges. I off-
set the main image and added the text, cut out using plain and scalloped die in black, finished off with
placing some feathers underneath. Hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, any comments you have
would be welcome....Thank You

Ethan's Christening

Hi Everyone, hope you are all o.k. and busy crafting.
My card today is one l have made for my Great Grandson's christening on Sunday.
The main card is cream and have used the same all through, the main matt l embossed with my
dotty folder, then l used my D-lites for the embellishments.....Floral corner one, Window three, and
Decorative Labels Eight. I cut the window twice once in a rainbow card so as to place the pieces behind to give effect of stained glass window. Stamped the Text and embossed with gold
powder, and l also used my gilding wax all through on the images. Really enjoyed making this card
and pleased with the finished product.  I do hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my blog, please
feel free to leave any comments....Thank You
