Oriental Geisha

Really late when I made this card this evening but was feeling inspired. Used K&Co backing paper, gold mirri card and DCWV Far East Stack Paper. Stamped Geisha onto cream cardstock and watercoloured with Lyra Aquacolour's. Stamped flowers (P/Impressions) onto Far East backing paper and used foam pads to mount onto card. Hope you like it!

"Inspired By" Christmas cards

I was recently reading through my latest addition of Papercraft Inspirations when come across a card that really stood out. I have interpreted them in my own way. Used Cricut to cut out the Heart Die's. 2 pieces of backing paper from various designers, Holly Leaves from Cricut, Brads,Gingham bow, Primer Flowers,S/Adhesive ribbon and word stamp from See D's set (exepect one which is a sticky word embellishment) to finish off. Love the pink and blue papers and think a heart is something different from the traditional style of card. Loved making these and hope to make many more, some of you may even receive one!!!

Penny Black Christmas Cards

These are 2 cards I made using the Penny Black Hedgehog Stamp and the Personal Impressions Christmas Tree Stamp. I stamped the hedgehogs and watercoloured with Tombow marker pens then masked off the hedgehogs and stamped over the christmas tree which was coloured with fluid chalk in pads. Matt and layered and finished with a greeting and stickles. Hope you like them!

Xmas Fat Page

This is the first page I made for swap I am in. Used DCWV Winter Stackmat as the backing paper and on the star, an embellishment and a piece of sticky ribbon. My first ever chistmas Fat Page..

In The Pink

As it was Craft Day today, thought I'd spend the day crafting with my daughter. This is one of the cards I made and think it is very different from the traditional christmas card. I used my Cricut to cut the christmas tree and Joanna Sheens papers. I added some extra peels and a word embellishment. The photo doesn't quite do it justice and it was nice to use different papers instead of the tradional christmas ones.

Vintage Fat Page

For this Fat Page I fused Fantasy Film and Fiibres together,(Its the first time I had tried using them) and then stamped a Vintage Lady using Stazon. I coloured the edge of a chipboard coaster with the DTP technique and added a square of Bazill cardstock and stamped Dreaming and a Background. I then overlayed the Fantasy Film on top.

"Little Book"

This a little book I made using ATC blanks for the pages. I used 2 different sheets of DaisyD papers and some Bazzill cardstock. I used various embellishments, stamps,fibres and peel offs to finish the book and my BIA to put together. Really enjoyed making my "Little Book" and am very pleased with the final result.

Card Kit

3 easy cards from an old QVC kit I found whilst sorting my craft room. Have added peel offs and some extra embellishments as they looked a bit bland without. Bought many kits in the past but to be honest very rarely use them. Quick and easy cards to make and the end result is better than expected.

Altered Art Cards

Above are 2 cards that I made for a monthly swap on CSF. I enjoyed making these, and used T/Holtz Distress Inks and Adirondaak Dabbers for the Background and the infamous Mona Lisa Stamp on one and a chld image and word stamp for the other.(unknown) Both were finished off with various embellishments and matching envelopes.

Christmas Notebook

This a a notebook I made using the Bind It all and 2 chipboard coasters. I coated the chipboard with Adirondaak dabbers and added some glitter while it was still wet. I then stamped with a Santa and Reindeer stamp (Clarity). I then put an overleaf of embossed acetate on top and added "Noel: which came from the Speaking of Winter Cricut cartridge. I finished it off by adding some ribbon down the side.

Cricut Card

I made this card for a friend on a forum. I used the Base Camp Alphabet to create name and flowers. I added strips of silver holographic card and peel offs.

Sansador Card

This is a card I made for my Mums birthday last week. I used the Artylicious CD to create the backing paper and then stamps the flower image (from Graphicus) onto white card, and backed that onto some bazzill cardstock. I coloured in with a new medium to me called Sansador. Its oil based and can be used with anything thats not watercolour. I used pastels in this instance and was quite pleased with my first attempt. The outside was given some large peels offs used by the "Glitter Girls".

For My Niece

This is a card I made for my niece. I used a patterned vellum on background and a t-shirt stamp and text I won on e-bay. I added peels offs and a sticky ribbon and used Pastel Rasberry liquid pearls to colour in the holes in the alphabet tags.

Cricut Christmas Card

I made this quick and easy card recently using my Christmas Cheer Cartridge on my Cricut. I then backed the trees onto a red star image background and layered onto gold holographic card,Lastly I added a sentiment and added a few peel offs.
