Stack it Christmas Card


Been away from my blog for a few days and can see my rating has dwindled. Hoping to get back to my crafting this week as not long to my holiday now and need to get everything sent before I go. Heres another addition I made using the Stack Its, 12x12 scrapbook page and a border punch. I finished with peels offs and a greeting. Hoping to get back into the habit of blogging on a more regular basis.

Pyramage Card


This is an A5 card that I used with my new Pyramage disc and Joanna Sheens backing papers. I do have quite alot of her papers and dont use them half as much as I should. I think the contrast of colours looks good and like the modern image with old fashioned papers. Made quite a few pyramage cards lately and seem to be buying any disc that has images on.

Garden Gate Card


Sorry, but I love this card. I was trying out my new Garden gate set of stamps from QVC. I just stamped 1 image onto white card with a Tim Holtz Distress ink pad just to see what it looked like. Then decided to cut it out. I can be quite an impulse crafter, when I sit to craft the idea's dont always come but in this instance I wasn't intending on making a card, it sort of just happened.
I used an A5 Grid card and rubbed the distressed ink pad over the card and the image. I cut a fence with my cricut. Stamped some floral detail onto card and onto the gate. Glued the fence to card, used foam pads for the gate. Added some stickles to the flower buds on the gate and added lots of Prima flowers. Distressed a piece of card and stamped "Happy Birthday" and added a bow to finish! The photo is a bit dull and looks so much nicer for real.

Diamond Pop Up Card


This is my first Diamond Pop Up Card. I got the Ultimate board and DVD the other week and decided to give one of the projects a go as all I usually use the board for is folding cardstock. Very easy to make and nice to try something different. I embellished with Crafters companion Floral Disc, used pale lilac vellum for backing and added a lilac bow and large peel offs at the bottom.The flower has been decoupaged.

I used a 6 x 3 tag and used 3 sheets of The English Paper Co "Winter Wonderland" papers. on each tag. Stamped "Warm Winter Wishes" and other images from my Indakinkado stamp set. Added some fibres and covered the back of tag with matching papers.

A very simple card made from a QVC kit. Backing Papers and Stamp both from Anna Griffin. Added some corner peel offs and used matching cardstock that I cut with a shaped blade ON MY Purple Cows Trimmer. Something different for a change, only so many christmas cards you can do. Needed a change of scenery. Hope you like it!
