Mothers Day..

I made this for my Mum's Mothers Day card.It was an 8x8 card. 
I embossed centura pearl cardstock with the Regency Swirls  embossing folder. Printed the greeting on to the same cardstock and cut the edge with curved borders 2 die. I then cut 3 more borders alternating between the ivory and lavender pearlised card. Layered them onto the embossed card. Added a matching ribbon and some gems and pearls. (I did put back the gem that fell off but had already taken the photo lol...)

I stamped the flowers petals using the Arianna Blooms stamp with a clear ink and embossed them using Seafoam White embossing powder then  cut them out using the die. I shaped the flower petals and coloured them with Milled Lavender Distress ink. Cut the stamens with a die and layered the petals to form the flowers and added a pearl in the centre of each one. Cut some swirls and glittered them and the flowers with crystal glitter. I loved making the flowers and can see myself making lots more of them in different colour ways.

2 commissioned cards..

The request for these two cards were they had to be quite flat as they were carried to a land down under in a suitcase and then brought back  to the UK. I  made this from an image from the Frou Frou CD, adjusted it in CAP, then took it into Inkscape to print the decoupage and to make the topper. Added a few gems and some glitter to give it a bit of bling

Did I mention I love this elegant ..kept it simple.

Works for both

Here is the Anniversary card I made for my hubby, even though I used pearls I think it was still quite a masculine card. It was a 7 x7 card base which I think worked well.

I used the same Sue Wilson die to make this card for my sisters 60th. This was on an 8x8 
card base, so I needed to use more mats under the topper to bring it up to size. Added some bling and some lovely flowers to make it more girly.

Now some for the Kids....

A rocker card, the decoupage was  from Lynzeysplace, I resized it and I added  a few bits using CAP. Printed it all out on Costco's photo paper and cut it by hand. Added lot of glitter too.. it was a large card, but I though it was perfect for a 1st Birthday.
Now I loved this..when I finished it...the backing paper was a shimmer paper that changed colour depending on which angle you viewed it from.  The FREDDIE   I did in CAP2  changed it to an svg and cut it on my cougar. The image was from the web I've no idea where, it's a character from a childrens TV program that Freddie liked.
The image of the girl was from a  decoupage sheet I bought in a bundle at a boot sale. That was such a good buy, must have got over 100 sheets lots of doubles but that didn't mater...think I've only ever cut this one up time I used some more.   The backing papers are from my stash, I added the ribbons, a lot of glitter, gems and charms.  

Using the stork again, printed the backing paper, the brother letters are from a crafters companion cd, which I made into an svg in CAP2 and cut on my cougar. The lace was from Pinflair, glitter gems and ribbon from stock.

Two for George

A fun card for my Uncle who is now 91, I thought it might make him laugh.. image from A La Pashe CD, decoupaged and mat and layered.

Thought I would share this one too...I made this one for the same Uncle for his 90th Birthday, this was a more personalised card, showing cut out pictures of his family, coming out of a memory box... The background paper shows him as he is now and  as he was on his wedding day. I tried to keep it vintage looking except I used flower soft on my Aunts wedding bouquet just to add a bit of texture. All edited in CAP,  printed onto  photo paper on a 8 x8 card

Halloween...A bit late I know but.....Spooky houses.. I downloaded the free svg file from Birds Cards,thanks Bird. It was so easy to cut out with my cougar. I altered the size so I could cut it from an A3 sheet, as the original was a bit too small for what I wanted. Used some lovely paper which changes colour depending on the angle it's view bought from Craft Creations for the lining then covered the inside with more black card for a bit of added strength..All that was left was to find some spooky sweets to put inside.

Most of the images used on the cards where from a digi kit I bought from Daisy Trail, the others were freebies but I can't remember where I got them.

I designed the card layout and made the images into decoupage files using cap. I took the images into Inkscape to print the fonts and background. Printed the decoupage onto gloss photo paper, cut by hand & layered them up and add a bit of glitter. All mounted onto 8 x 8 card.

Art Deco Ladies...I

I love art deco ladies and enjoy making cards using them.
This one was so pretty. I bought the lady & frame file from the clipart fairy. Printed it out on photo paper, and cut out the centre from the frame. I printed the wording on my laser printer in black, then hot foiled it in silver. and put the frame on top using pads to give it height.I  decided to make the decoupage into a few more layers than what it came with. I decided to make it into an easel card, printed the backing papers. Added a ribbon, some pearls, silver glitter for her jewellery, crystal glitter on the frame and on the feathers, and my lovely roses which acted as the stopper for the card.

I really can't remember where I got the file for this. A large card, lots of layers to the decoupage, added charms, pearls, lots of glitter and feathers.

Another decoupaged, layered  glittery card.

Such a cute card, I bought the pdf from the clipart fairy. Resized it, printed it out onto photo-paper, then printed it again and cut around the vogue and glittered it. Cut out and made the decoupage lady, decided on an an easel card adding a matching ribbon, more glitter and some gems.

Another pretty blue lady from the clipart fairy.  Printed the greeting and swirl directly onto pearlised card, then hot foiled the them in silver. Added a ribbon and some gems to the ribbon.  Cut out the lady and the frame, and decoupaged them, added some have to add glitter..

I think the image of the lady and the chandelier is from a MCS CD. Printed onto photo paper, the chandelier was glittered using black stickles. Matted onto black card, then silver card all put onto black shinny card.  The lady was  decoupaged and glittered using crystal glitter. The Happy Birthday was  designed in Inkscape and cut on my cougar. I bought the lovely diamond flourish.

All printed out on photo paper, decoupaged, glittered and a few gems added.

A Few for the Men...

Well I thought it was about time I updated my blog, yes I have been making cards but most of the time have not taken any photo's of them. Here are a few cards that I've made for the men..I always find these the most difficult to do. 

I loved making this card, it  takes quite a long time to make, I cut the Jake on my blackcat cougar, then glittered the letters. The card and paper were from my stash. The  Del Boy & Rodney decoupage was printed out on glossy photo paper from a CD by Card Creations, the main image was also decoupaged from a La Pashe CD.  


A Stepper card can't remember where I got the images from think they were from some freebie clip art site.
I think this image is off a CD I bought years ago, it decoupages up really well and I  love using it not just for men's cards but for any celebration
I made the background from various images using CAP2, after printing I went around the edges with a distress ink  I think the steampunk lady was a digi stamp I bought from Kenny K, I don't do a lot of digi colouring in, but I did this one using promarkers. Think I'd better practice more...

Although it doesn't show up much in this photo, this is decoupaged with quite a few layers. The image was printed onto photo paper from a CD by LaPashe. Perfect for the man who likes to tinker with cars.


Another decoupage, I think this was printed from a La Pashe CD, perfect for the bus enthusiast 

Another decoupage from a Remember When Sheet
A dangly decoupaged rugby player from a La Pashe sheet..I cut an aperture into the card made up the front view of the player, then did the rear view, inserted a thread between the from and back and  stuck them together  so the would dangle on the card. Covered the inside of the card with silver miri board, so the back was reflected in it. If you look closely you can see the reflection in the back.
