Simply recycled


This is simply recycled (or should that be upcycled) - using the image from a card received, matted and layered on to a textured white card blank (white not showing up well in the photo):


This is for:

The paper players 140: theme recycled or re-purposed
Try it on Tuesday (Tuesday taggers): recycle it
CRAFT 201: recycle

Get well


A simple card made with a blue card blank mottled with some pinky purple. The panel on the left was created using alcohol inks - wild plum and stonewashed blue with some blending solution, then matted on to silver mirror card, with the addition of some flower stickers and a silver edged sentiment.

The bottom of the panel looks crooked, but it isn't, it's somehow the angle of the photo.


This is for:

Tag cards


I found up five patterned card blanks that I had ages ago and also five tags that I'd cut from some spotted card using a Sizzix red die. I embossed this with the swiss dots embossing folder, added a few flowers, ribbons and sentiments - a quick batch of cards with tags on them. I inked around the edges of the tags, although you can't see that very clearly here.


These are for:

Playing in paradise 111: embossing
Fairytale 64: tags
Pink by design: thinking of you (the first card)

Thinking of you


Simple card to tell someone that I'm thinking of them. The fan was stamped and then masked, then the Lindsay Mason cherry blossom was stamped above and below, everything coloured with flexmakers. Three flowers layered to finish the card off with a Creata textured rub on sentiment.
