Just Because

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA small card 4 inch square and as it says – Just because. Made using a Marianne Creatable die. I love to make Just Because cards – Why do we need a reason to send a card. This lovely little heart ballon die is enough to brighten anyday and I hope it brightens yours x

Butterfly Blue

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn 8 x 8 card with just a hint of colour. I have used 2 different sizes of Tonic dies to create the die-cut circles, (the centre circle has been mounted up with 3d foam), which I have backed with Silver holographic mirri card. The flowers are 2 different sizes of flower punches, 5 of which have been layered up, with a turquoise gem in the centre of each. I added the die cut blue butterfly for a focal point with a shot of colour. Hope you like it x

Congratulations

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn A5 Wedding card made using the Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty-Five dies. A very simple colour scheme – just white and holographic silver mirri card. I just layered the different elements, running the white crinkle ribbon behind the central stamped panel. The butterfly is 3 sizes of the same butterfly, layered up with 4 gems in the centre. I used a heart dazzler in the centre of the bow to add a little bling and finish the card off. Hope you like it x

All my Love

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA DL card – not a size that I make very often. Made with Kraft card that has been run through a Sheena Douglas embossing folder and then inked over with Walnut Distress Ink. I’ve cut the flower from felt using a Tim Holtz Bigz Sixxiz die, and finished off with a button and some lilac raffia ribbon x

Happy Birthday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA birthday card for my sister. The background is the “Happy Birthday” Poppystamp die which has been cut twice on a brown background and underlaid with pink card. I’ve added the pink ribbon tied in a bow before adding my topper which is from one of the Lily of the Valley pre-coloured pads. I would love to be able to colour like this but I just don’t have the patience. The topper has been lightly distressed around the edges with “Sun Sugar” before being mat and layered on brown and pink card x

Love, Joy and Happiness

  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA Wedding Pop up box card made for a colleague to take to a wedding at the weekend. I cut all the balloons, hearts and banners from Sizzix dies, which along with the panels on the card,are coloured with Seedless Preserve and Peacock Feather (my favourite) distress inks. I had resisted buying a “Big Shot” die-cutting machine until a couple of months ago, but now that I have started to create some mixed media projects, I like the flexibility it gives me to die-cut thicker materials. I will be posting some of these projects in future blogs x

A Butterfly Kiss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA card I made for my Step-mums birthday this month. She absolutely adores butterflies so I always put a butterfly on her card, or as in this case, its all butterflies. The butterflies are all double cut from Craftwork Cards “Kitsch” Collection and layered, with 2 self adhesive yellow pearl in their centre. I set them out like this because I thought the 5 butterflies set out like this resemble a kiss. Hope you like it x
