Easter narcissus


Probably my last Easter card - a quick one using a recycled image matted on to orange card, Kanban sentiment and everything on to some Kanban grass card.

Easter daffodils


I love daffodils - they are such a sign of spring and so are the little chicks, so I thought they would look good together on this 5 x 7 yellow card blank. The chicks paper is an offcut snippet from a piece of PDA paper and the daffodil topper is Kanban. Sentiment generated on the Dymo letratag. A couple of pieces of gold foil strips (Paper Cellar) either side of the chicks paper (although it doesn't look gold here).

Happy Easter


Another Easter card made a couple of weeks ago using some Kanban background card with eggs, stripes of floral card (can't remember where it came from) - these strips had folds, but I covered them with the felt eggs. Sentiment panel is also Kanban (from quite a long time ago).

CHNC challenge 224: add some texture


For my CHNC challenge 224, I'm asking to see some texture on your Christmas designs - it might be some embossing, fabric, flowers, lace ... anything that provides some texture - I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too.

For my card I used an embossing folder run through the eBosser to texture some red mirror card, matted this on to a green card blank and added a picture from a set I bought long ago, a couple of Hobbycraft poinsettias on other flowers and some gold ribbon - a few different textures.

Completely Christmas 58


This is my design card for Completely Christmas 58: anything goes with a twist ... add a touch of gold. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I've used Lacy Sunshine 1920s winter Abby, kindly supplied by the sponsor. I coloured with chameleon pens and used a quickie glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter for the fur. The background on the left was achieved with an offcut of embossed mirror card (using budding vine embossing folder), wrapped with a piece of glittered ribbon, with an offcut of paper on the right. Another piece of mirror card from an offcut box was used to back the image. Flowers were from Hooked on Craft (part of a prize I won a long time ago).

I think I went a bit over the top with all the gold ... the challenge only actually asks for 'a touch of gold' - lol!!

The theme for my CHNC challenge 224 this week is 'add some texture', so I'm showing this card there as well and will be encouraging those who enter there to also enter Completely Christmas 58.
