A very Merry Christmas

I have been creating some simple Christmas cards with my Dovecraft Magic & Sparkle papers, these cards are relatively flat - perfect for posting.


I have used papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad and fussy cut the beautiful stag from the cover of the 12 x 12 paper pad.


The sentiment stamp has unfortunately lost is packaging so I'm not sure who is is from.  I hand cut the banner and added some pearls to embellish.

Wishing you a Happy Day

I have been playing with my Craftwork Cards October Stamp Club add on stamps again, this is the second one of the set that I use to create my earlier cards.


I've kept to a CAS design again, colouring my stamp with rich yellow and gold ProMarkers and adding some dotty papers from my stash.


The sentiment is also from the stamp set, I cut it into a banner shape and doodled around the edges to make is stand out a bit more.

Diamond Wedding Anniversary

This is another of the cards that I created for the latest edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft.


I was sent the Apple Blossom Large Numbers and Suffixes die set along with the matching stamp set to use, for this card I cut the numbers from glitter card stock.


I used some beautiful papers from the First Edition The Promise
8 x 8” Paper Pad and computer generated the sentiment.

Jolly Snowman

I have created this cute Christmas card using the Helz Cuppleditch Decoupage Pad and 6 x 6 Paper pack.


The image is a decoupage image, I layered it up using foam pads and used red card stock as a base for everything.


The sentiment is from the decoupage pack, I added some die cut snowflakes, gems and twine with two little bells attached.

90th Birthday Wishes

The latest edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft is in the shops today and I am thrilled to have six cards using the super Apple Blossom Large Numbers die set and matching stamps featured.


This is one of the cards that I created - I stamped and die cut the numbers and heat embossed them.
 

The papers are from the Nitwit Collections Cottage Charm Bundled Collection and I used one of my Die-namics Fishtail Flags Dies and some Tattered Lace Flower Dies.


Make sure you pick up a copy of the magazine, there is a fabulous free stamp and die set and lots of super inspiration.

Coming Home for Christmas

I really need to get on and make some Christmas cards or it's going to be the last minute rush again this year!  I have created this Dutch Fold card using the Craftwork Cards Peppermint Forest collection - I love these pretty colours.


There are three of each topper in the collection so I decided to create a pyramage image.  I used circle dies to cut the two smaller layers and fussy cut the car from the bottom layer as it would be covered up.  I layered everything up using foam pads and mounted it onto a scalloped circle which is dark grey to match the papers.


I cut the sentiment from the toppers cover page and added some die cut snowflakes and gems.


This is the inside panel of the card, I used one of the large sentiments from the collection.

Birthday Stars

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, it's the dreaded one layer week and the theme is Stars.


I used four stamp sets to create this simple card!  The sentiment is from Creative Expressions, the large stars are from the Clearly Besotted Superstar stamp set, the smallest solid stars are from the Clearly Besotted Many Thanks stamp set and the larger solid stars are from the Lawn Fawn Summertime Charm stamp set.


I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink - these inks stamp up beautifully.


I would like to enter this card into this weeks Less is More Challenge #350 - One Layer Stars.

For a Special Friend

Another pretty card to share today, I have used the Craftwork Cards Shabby Chic Collection Pack to create a shaker card.


I used the Country Charm Template to create my flowers, I traced around the large and small flower several times and fussy cut them.  I layered them up and added small rolled flowers from the Shabby Chic collection to the centre of each flower.


The sentiment banner is also from the collection, I cut another banner from the dotty papers.  I added a butterfly that was die cut from the same dotty papers.

Have a great Day

Another card using Craftwork Cards products today, this time I used the Cottage Garden Spring Collection from the A Pocket full of Paper USB.


I copied the bird house into Microsoft Word and flipped the image so that I could have one of them facing the opposite way, I then printed them and fussy cut them before adding them to my card with foam pads - the little chains that are hanging them up are a stamp that was free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.


The sentiment is from the USB and the flowers are from the October Stamp Club Add On Stamps.

CAS Birthday Wishes

I have a really CAS card to share today, it's actually a one layer card - I didn't think I would see the day when I would create a one layer card just for fun!


I have used the Craftwork Cards October Stamp Club add on stamps again and have simply repeat stamped the image across the bottom of my card using the Misti.  I coloured the images with ProMarkers and added a sentiment that is also part of the stamp set.

Discover your Dreams

I have created this card with the same Debbi Moore download that I used a couple of days ago.


Lots of my favourite fussy cutting again - I have inked the edges of everything and used foam pads to add dimension.


I had great fun playing with these downloads.

Have a Great Day

This is one of the Craftwork Cards Stamp Club add on stamps, this is such a pretty collection I just had to get them all!


I stamped and coloured one image with ProMarkers and then masked and stamped again to create the blank box. The background is from the Sweet and Petite Julie Loves Creativity Box and the sentiment is from the A Pocket full of Paper USB.


I cut the sentiment into a banner shape and doodled around the edges, I also doodled around the outside of the card base - I think I need a bit more practice.

Sorry it's Late

I have created this card with another Debbi Moore download, this one is quite different from yesterdays though!  I love cutting out all of the different elements and then deciding how to arrange them on the card.


Everything on this card is from the download, all I have added is a card blank, foam pads and glue.


I fussy cut all of the elements and then inked the edges.

Beautiful Blooms

I have used my Craft Consortium Bloom Beautiful paper pad to create another card.


I have used one of the beautiful floral papers and cut the bird topper from another of the papers using my Sue Wilson stitched squares die.


I created the flowers with a Spellbinders Becca Feeken die called Cinch and Go Flowers, I used Core'dinations card stock - I quite like the effect when you spritz them with water and scrunch them up.

Watercolour Mandala

This is the final card that I have made using my Julie Loves Mandalas Creativity Box, I have used up all of the Mandalas now but there are some beautiful papers left.


I used all three of the same design again for this card, this time I coloured them all differently and fussy cut them.


I adhered them to one of the beautiful papers, trimming two of them so that they are over the edge.  The small Mandalas and sentiments were also from the kit, I coloured them to match.
