Happy Anniversary!

This is an Anniversary card for Ian and Denise, good friends of ours that we used to work with.

I folded a long piece of card to give a main part to the card and a little easel part at the base.

The background paper is all from the Crafters Companion (TM) S.W.A.L.K CD 1.

I die cut on the Grand Calibur (TM) the white card for the stamped image and the burgundy layering piece using some Papermania (TM) layering dies.

The stamp is from Dovercraft (TM) and is from a Tea House stamp set called "Tea for Two".

I coloured the image using Promarkers (TM).

I made a rosette using a long piece of card that a zig zag folded and then added a heart embellishment which I made using the punches and acrylic circles from Papermania (TM) and an image once again from the Crafters Companion (TM) S.W.A.L.K CD 1.

Happy Anniversary Ian and Denise for November 5th.

Happy Engagement!

Happy Engagement Peter and Catherine!

This is a shaped base card that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo (TM) machine after printing the design.

The images are from a Kanban (TM) card kit and I die cut the bird die on the Grand Calibur (TM), it is a Marianne design die and was cut from turquoise mirror card.

The wedding is planned for early 2013, congratulations!

Get Well Soon Chris!

This card is for our next door neighbour who had an embulism in his right leg recently and has been a little delicate lately, get well soon Chris!

I used an A5 blue card base.
I used some alcohol inks on to silver foil paper which I thought gave an interesting effect.
The image is a Ranger Tim Holtz (TM) inspired image that I cut out of black card.

I added the sentiment which reads "we are sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather!"

Chris really appreciated this card.

Baby's First Christmas.

First I must apologise, I have just not had the time to update my blog recently, so this may be a bit of a marathon session, just a good job we have an extra hour today!!

This card is my favourite of my creations, so far, this Christmas!
The image is, of course, a Lili of the Valley (TM) stamp which has been re-introduced recently as there was uproar when it was discontinued, you can see why, it is simply gorgeous.

I cannot take credit for the over all design of this card, I have tweaked it from a card I saw on the Lili of the Valley (TM) site, thanks girls!

I took a A5 base card and covered it with a background paper from a pack of papers I got last year in a kit from Crafters Companion (TM).

I used some polka dot tape from Ikea (TM) to break up the background a little.
I used a gold piece of card and embossed it and used some Ranger Tim Holtz (TM) distress ink on it to give a little interest.

The stamped image is mounted on to red and blue card and coloured in using both Promarkers (TM) and Aquamarkers (TM) and enhanced with a little glitter on the hat and the reindeer horns.

The stamped image was then placed on a doily.

I cut some trees out of foam and decorated them with sequins and die cut a sentiment on blue card.

I love this I just have to look for somone who has a little person who is celebrating their first Chrsitmas this year!!

Hope you like it!!
