Merry Christmas


Hooray!! I've made a Christmas card.

I made it with several different dies, the one behind the candles is the Marianne Creatable Floral Circle which I cut with gold mirror card.
The candles are also a Marianne Creatable die to which I have added Glitter Snow.
The leaves are cheery Lynn s Fir Branch.

I really appreciate you taking the time to visit.
Thank you

Card for MIL


This is the card I made for my MIL's Birthday this year.
It's not a very good Picture of it with some of it being to light and other bits too dark to see properly.
I was quite pleased with the way it turned out though.

I printed a photo of her when she was younger and cut it out with Spellbinders Ovals.
The lovely rose scalloped sides I made with the Marianne Creatable Anja's Rose border Die LR0212
The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Die which I cut out with black and backed it with the same paper as the background.
The hydrangea's I made by cutting a polystyrene ball (half inch) in half and gluing on flowers from the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch (the smallest ones) these i also cut from the same paper as the background and added drops if  liquid pearls to the centers.
The Happy Birthday is also a Marianne Creatable Die .

Thank you for taking the time to have a look.

Happy Birthday Callam

Hi Everyone,   This is the card I made for my godson Callam this year.

I made the background with the Crafters Workshop Harlequin template.
I first sponged over the template with Memento Tuxedo black, then moved the template down a little and sponged again with Memento Peanut Brittle.
The script behind the cards is a KaiserCraft stamp which was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.
The cars are the Marianne Design Classic Cars Die set ( out of stock )and the  Happy Birthday sentiment is also a Marianne Design Die.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today

Chloe's Card

Hello,  our grand daughter Chloe had a 15th birthday recently and here is my card I made for her.

Chloe loves her high top sneakers which I thought were purple but it turns out they are blue (I always thought I was a very observant, but apparently I'm not), they were coloured with copic and cut out with Spellbinders Labels 2.
The background I did with the emboss resist method using Memento Lulu Lavender and summer Sky to get the blue violet colour I wanted to match the copics used.
A bit of thin ribbon to represent laces and I made some of my friend Angie's Peary flowers and used Sizzix Little leaves for the leaves.

I really appreciate you visiting
