Bitty Blossoms,
Ribbon buckles

I then cut the Buckle, Bitty blossoms, leaves and the greeting plate which I had printed out. made up the blossoms drew round cut an extra mat from the romantic rectangle I had used for the greeting, I then started to make the card I threaded the ribbon through the buckle and stuck it to the pink piece of card, then stuck this to the card base I decided were I wanted to place the blossoms and stuck them into place added the greeting to the mat and placed this onto the card.

Fancy Spellbinder

Another fancy fold concept from Sue Wilson. I used my new dies "Wings of Hope", Samantha Walker's "Antique Frames and Accents" , "Damask Accents" and a Papermania Sister stamp.
I decided to create a tone on tone card using to types of cream card one matt and one pearlised.
The tutorial for the fancy fold is on Sue Wilson's Blog "Parti crafts" and is list on the right side of my blog. I cut the border and liked the negative pieces that i also used both side and raised the actual border slightly as you

can use little bitty foam squares to stick it down. I coloured the butterfly while it was still in the die with Antique linen distress ink and it just gave a slight shadow effect. The sister stamp I used Adirondack Woodlands ink its a rainbow ink pad with four beautiful earth tones I used the brown and peachy colour I then cut it out sprayed it with adhesive and covered it with crystal glitter I stamped the greeting using the same Adirondack ink to the centre panel. and finished with Cosmic Shimmer PVA dark bronze and Olympic gold.

Glamorous Steampunk

I received my new Steampunk craft artist Cd's the other day so had to play with them, I needed to create a girly card for a friend.
I used Pink Material and the Scissor tool to get the edges also the Lace brushes from the photo real brushes. I printed the greeting and name then used the colouring tool to fade the colour and shadowed this.
I added the mannequin, boots and perfume bottles from the Steampunk Parlour Kit and could not resist the little butterfly but coloured it pink to match. I used two of the tags to sit down the edge of the lace. I then printed it out I was going to print the images again and decoupage them on top  but I decided to give the card lift by adding sequins, glitter and bows

Fun Fishing


This is an A4 card I created the background in craft artist I placed fished onto the paged and used the blend mode to give a watermark effect. The Greeting I used the effects tab and gave this a Glass effect and a slight shadow so that it stood off the page. The image came from MCS Mens CD  I used the Punch to get the shape and did the same with materials from Craft Artist. I added a shadow to these to give a layered effect. The Brother Button I used the same materials and the punch added text.

I printed the backing page the image and the button seperate then put them all together onto an A$ card then I added little google eyes to the fish and diamond Glaze to the button (I would normally add the glaze before I fixed this to the card but it turned out.)
