A friend

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 card using some papers from the Graphic 45 “Typography” pad. I love the many sayings in this pad and also the boldness of the colours. As with all of the Graphic 45 pads, everything always fully co-ordinates so it is very easy to layer papers to make a lovely card. I’ve added a ribbon and embellishments from Creative Expressions to finish the card. I hope you like it x

Just for you

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust for you – An A5 card using papers from the Craftwork Cards “Al Fresco” pad. It is such pretty, bright pad – so cheerful. I have used parts of several papers to mat and layer on this card to continues the cycling theme that has been a major part of our summer this year. The “Tour De France” starting in Yorkshire this year has given everyone a great sense of community here, along with a renewed interest in cycling. We have had a wonderful summer this year, and while it is still here, I’m grabbing it with both hands x

Pink Roses, Blue Butterflies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA 6 x 6 tent card made using the Graphic 45 “Botanical Tea” Collection. I’ve distressed it a little by roughing round the edges as this collection can be used to make both very contemporary or vintage style cards. The colours in this collection are lovely and there is a lot of different subjects within the collection to make many different types and styles of card. I added a little Stickles to the rose on the topper for a bit of sparkle. Hope you like it x

Make a Wish

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnother gorgeous Seaside kit – this time from Graphic 45. Its called “Beside the Sea”. Although it is a very colourful collection, I wanted to focus on the blue for this card, so chose a blue mat for both the background and the topper. I love the little topper with its saying “Make a wish on a Starfish”. The whole collection goes together so well – the little shells on the background sheet to cut out, the stamps and the little toppers. I used the string and the peacock blue spiders web to give it a bit of an organic feel and am very pleased with the overall effect and how it all came together. Hope you like it too 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

Time for Tea

I love the colours in this collection – they all co-ordinate beautifully and are so refreshing in this heat. I love making these flowers – so simple, but so effective. Hope you like it x
