I'm Back

Not been blogging for a while but have still been making cards. Not as many as I would like cos work has been taking up alot of my time recently but here are a few of my latest creations. The quality of the pictures are not brilliant but you get the idea. They are coloured magnolia images and the retirement card is made using my super bargain flippin men & Women stamps that were on sale at imag-e-nation. The mermaid card is made using my magnolia summer stamp club surprise stamps.
The first card is made using a Sarah Kaye stamp

Gorguss Girl Easel card

I have used Craftwork Cards papers and sentiments. The circle is the large circle nesties and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have also used the Martha Stewart edge punch on the strip used on the base of the card.

Happy Easter !!!

Not been around for a while been a bit busy lately. Here is a card I made for my son to give to Nanna. I have discovered easel cards and really enjoy making them and I am really into paper flowers at the moment so I try to use them whenever I can along with nesties and my Martha Stewart punches.

I used my "think pink" design card for the slice to make the letters and glittered them with fine copper glitter.

Happy birthday Mum

Made these 2 cards mums. I have been playing with fonts and printing off my own sentiments. Stamped the card background with with brilliance pearlescent ink pads and used my nesties.Gold one stacked and pink one as a frame.Flowers are a mixture of prima, magnolia and wild orchid crafts. Simple but effective.Finished off with a few pearl stones.

Nephew card

Made this for my 10 year old nephew for later this month. I cut the number 10 out using my xmas pressie - pink slice. I really like it but would not part with big shot, both good for different things.Alway difficult to find images for boys this was a super bargain sale stamp only cost £2.

Retirement Card

Hi not been on here for a while.Hadn't realised how long. I have been busy crafting though. A colleague is retiring after 28 years!!. I wanted to do something different to my usual magnolia copic colouring as she has seen a few of those so decided to have a go with my craftwork cards owl stamps. I have used the doily punch to edge the blue vellum and the flowers are from wild orchard craft.I have coloured the stamps with my sakura glitter pens.
