Here is a card for our nephew - we have bought him an i tunes voucher so I thought a card with an i pod on it would be quite appropriate! Only trouble is this is an old i pod and he has an i pod touch - but never mind!

A Handbag!

A girly handbag was in order today so I started with the card blank from Craftwork Cards. They are fairly simple to decorate with just a scattering of little flowers cut with punches and decorated with diamonds!

To make them easier to write I add a little panel onto the inside of the card and a few more flowers of course.

This card is for someone who is Newcastle fan - I know I have the colours wrong! His girlfriend is having a laugh! Hope he sees the funny side.

And Yet More!!

Yes another one! Last one for now! Birthday card next! This card is made with stickers! But very cute stickers!! Writing was done on the computer - not much to say about it really.

More Twins

Another card for the twin boys this time for their cousins. The baby images are yet another sizzix sizzlet die. And the hands and feet are gorgeous flock brads - really fluffy and touchy feely.

Here is one of three twin cards I have been asked to make. This one is for the parents. The babies are cut using a sizzlet die - chalk has been added to give them lovely rosey cheeks.

Man Card

Why are mens cards so difficult? He is one I had to make quickly today because it is actually for a birthday today - how bad am I?? Paper on this card is all from Die Cuts With a View. It is finished off with some screw brads and glittered acrylic spots.

Dom is 13 !!!!!!!!!!

He is our card for our son Dominic's birthday at the weekend! I don't actually believe he is finally going to be a teenager because he has been acting like one for soooo long!

I will have to keep him away from my blog now so he doesn't see it! The words are cut using a cricut then white gel pen was used to make the faux stitches. The little fox has been flocked to make him all fluffy. All in all pretty plain but I think Dom will like it.

Big Smile

A card for a friend who's birthday is very soon. All papers I have used and frame are from s.e.i Granny's Kitchen - I just love the colours of these papers. Good old Granny!!

On A Roll

I didn't just find time to make one card I made two!! This one is made using Linda Luckin's fab border and background stamp. Both have been glittered up using dazzling dimonds so they look jewel encrusted! Yet more of the never ending stack of paper has been used on this card.


At last I found some time to craft - I've been trying all week to find a couple of minutes to myself but with half term it hasn't been easy! So I have used more of my stash of paper I am trying to get through - will I ever use all this up?

Take Time

Yet another card made with some of my old stash of papers!
I stamped the image with black stazon and covered the bubbles with dazzling diamonds. The bath has been covered in liquid pearls in the hope to make it look enameled . The cute little cat has been made fluffy with a bit of brown flock. The whole card was finished of with a little ribbon!

Have a Devil of a Day!

All paper on this card is from the Smirk range by Trimcraft as is the little devil who I coloured in with watercolour pencils and sukura pens. The small smirk flowers have had flock added to the centre of them and white gel pen around the flock. A fabric flower has been added and some pink brads.

March Moos

I'm trying to get a head of myself again so here are my moos for Marchs swap on Craftswap. I had fun playing this afternoon ! I edged them with silver krylon pen.


Another man card - I do find I make mens cards very plain and simple. So I cut the name and number on the cricut and just added eyelets for a little added interest. I hope the person who wanted it likes it!

Teenage Sister

Doesn't this cupcake look good enough to eat? It was cut on a quickutz revolution and the decorated with sugar coating glitter from doodlebug and some pretty pink acrylic blobs.

This is a card for a gardener! I added stampin' up parcels to the wheel barrow and glued it on with silicone glue.

Beauty is all Around

Another butterfly card this time black, white and green. It has a lot of my favourite things in fact the only thing missing is a bit of ribbon!

How fab are these stamps? These backround stamp that has been embossed in silver and the gorgeous border stamp are both Linda Luckin stamps! To see more of her designs click on my sunflower at the edge of my blog and be amazed! (you might need to get your purse out though )

Going for Gold

This weeks My Time to Craft challenge is "Going for Gold" using anything gold. So I used a stamp which I embossed in gold. I then colored the letters with a white gel pen. The butterfly is stamped on acetate with purple stazon then gitter and a bindi were added. All finished off with some gems!

Thursday, 5 February 2009


Another valentines card - this time one I have had a request for! Inside the mini envelope is a card with a private message. Quite a cute card all in all. The hearts were free stamps this month with a craft magazine.

Sweet Moos

I was looking around Craftswap this morning and discovered I had my name down for the moo swap in february but I hadn't made the moos! So I made them today. I used Linda Luckin's sweetpea stamp and flocked the flowers and used sugar coating on the stems! Then I edged them all with gold krylon pen.

Dom's Homework

I know looks odd doesn't it? Well let me explain! Dom did his homework and we wondered how to hold it together and my bind it all just happened to be getting very dusty so we wiped it off and binded the book. Well this is the very first time I have ever used it to bind more than the 5 or 6 holes it makes in one go. As you can tell I'm a little proud of it!

Totally Heavenly

An atc for today. The rose and the butterfly are both Linda Luckin stamps - to see more of her fab designs please click on the sunflower at the side of my blog and enjoy! I flocked the rose with red flocking. The butterfly was stamped onto acetate then glttered and a bindi added for the sparkly body. I finished it off with gold leafing krylon pen around the edges!

Bird Suprise

Here is my card for the My Time to Craft Challenge for this week the theme is "Birds" so give it a go! I stamped the cockerel with versamark then embossed it in black. I then cut it out and mounted it on some green Brenda Pinnick paper. This was then mounted onto silver holographic card. The same paper and card was used for the background.
