Sapphire anniversary


This was a commissioned card for a couple's 45th wedding anniversary, hence the background of the front of the card was made with blue mirror embossed with an embossing folder and fut off at the end to add a border made with a Martha Stewart punch, with a striped piece of Hot off the press paper to cover the join. I put some mirror card inside so it showed through the gaps in the punched border. The lovely delicate hearts with pearls and the numerals and letters were added and two embroidered bows.



Inside, using another piece of striped Hot off the press paper to hide the join:

Hope you will be feeling better soon


For this card I used Paper Boutique background paper on to a lemon patterned card blank, with the Sparkle n sprinkle Eve's sunflower digital image printed, coloured with spectrum noir pens and fussy cut out and matted on to the offcut piece of card with the butterfly added and the dymo letratag sentiment. Also the digital image is called 'Eve's sunflower', the way I've coloured it, it doesn't look like one.

The tide recedes


Another seaside card I made earlier. I still can't remember where the scalloped circles with beach huts came from, but they were just right for what I wanted to do. I stamped and embossed the words of the  poem which were part of a set by rubbadubbado, with the addition of the little puffy stickers, all mounted on the shaped card blank.

Beside the seaside


This card is similar to one that I  made for a 70th birthday card earlier.I can't remember where the scalloped circles with beach huts came from, but they were just right for what I wanted to do.

Happy birthday


Background paper for this card is from 12 x 12 Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash vintage shabby ... I love it, but rarely use it. I've got now idea where the topper squares and sentiment panel came from. The flower is from a larger Papermania flower with pieces cut off the pels and a small fabric flower added to the centre and another at the bottom of the card.

Happy birthday to a lovely granddaughter


For this commissioned card I played with inks, using a Hunkydory prism inkpad all over the scalloped edged A5 tent style card blank, blotting in placed to reveal white bits. I stamped the Tim Holtz paisley stamp inked with memento grape jelly,a couple of times to get a long enough piece, cut the sides and rounded the corners, matting on to purple mirror card, wrapping a glittered ribbon around. The embossed square was created using an embossing folder that also created the mat for the printed greeting. A Hobbycraft flower was added - white brushed with memento grape jelly.

Thanks for your help


A commissioned card some time ago for a friend to take to her Chiropractor who was moving on. I created in word clouds with a free online help and got the silhouette clip arts free online too, putting the whole thing together digitally, adding the sentiments and then printing and mounting on to a black card blank.

You passed


A card made a while ago for someone who had just passed their test. Sadly, I can't remember where the digital image came from, but I love it. The pieces top and bottom are Hunkydory offcuts and the side pieces of corrugated card were taken from some packaging.

Happy birthday


This is an 8 x 8 card made a while ago using paper from DCWV and a big die cut shape, some butterflies and flowers from Hobbycraft and The Works. The greeting circle was a freebie die which I cut into some self adhesive copper sheet (much easier than trying to put adhesive on the delicate die), mounting on to a circle. The strip of gems was bought at a craft fair.

60th birthday


This was a recent commission for a daughter's 60th birthday. Supplies are mainly from Hunkydory with pink flowers from Hobbycraft. I printed the sentiment and quickly covered with silver detail powder and heat embossed and then die cut and embossed with a todo die. I love these two colours together.
