UR 40


For this commissioned card for a 40th birthday I used a couple of different sentiment backgrounds from Kanban with the sentiments. The car (request for a cab driver) is a large Sizzix die (one of the first I had) cut with black mirror card, adding cut out acetate for the windscreen and silver mirror for the lights with the addition of the number plate generated by my dymo letratag.

For a dog lover


I was asked to make a card for a lady who has black dog, much the same as the one I used to digitally put on to the scene, matted on to an offcut of mirror card. The background was created with offcuts of sentiment card by Kanban, covering the joins with the green ribbon, adding the sentiment ovals.

Not enough candles


This is a card I made and sent earlier in the year for a cousin who is just six months younger than me ... I always tease about age, so I wrote inside that I was sorry there weren't enough candles - lol!

This was made with one of the Dots to Diamonds designs, colouring the candles with spectrum noir and adding the gems. The birthday greeting was stamped inked with Hero Arts ombre.

Inspired by the stripes etc from Paperbabe 99 picture inspiration::

With deepest sympathy at this difficult time


This is a commissioned  sympathy card that I was asked to make a while ago. The background was created on lilac paper randomly stamping one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called sparklers inked with memento grape jelly. I also stamped with the Penny Black butterfly edge stamp, also inked with the grape jelly. The panel with the lilies was upcycled from an old card, the ribbon with tiny silver studs was from Hobbycraft. I added the sentiment circle and the butterflies with 3D wings from Docrafts.

Colours are for Color my heart 353:

Happy birthday daughter-in-law


This is a commissioned card for a friend to give to her daughter-in-law. I used backing card and elements from Kanban, cutting the easel, mat and side floral piece using a Die'sire create-a-card floral easel set from Crafter's Companion. The floral piece was cut from a pearlescent card. I added lace and ribbon to the base with the sentiments to act as a stopper.

Unfortunately, the photos don't show the lovely copper foiling on the butterflies - much better irl.
