Quick Cards Made Easy Bonus Papers

Have you picked up a copy of the new Quick Cards Made Easy magazine, there are some super bonus papers in this months edition.  I was invited to join the Reader Design team this month and was sent the papers in advance.  These are not the cards that I made for the actual magazine, these are a couple of extras that I created - I don't know if my card is in the magazine or on the website, I haven't managed to get hold of a copy yet!.


There are seven lovely picnic themed papers and a selection of sentiments.


All I have added is some pink card stock, everything else is from the bonus papers.


On this card I just stamped and fussy cut some additional flowers.

Elegance is ...

This is another of my cards that were published in the July edition of Making Cards Magazine, I created four cards using the beautiful Petals & Parasols Collection from NitWit Collections.


I think you could be seeing a lot more of these papers in the future, they are one of my favourites from NitWit Collections.


As usual I have added a decoupage layer, I kept this card quite simple though - I was trying to achieve an elegant design.


Thank you for popping in today.

New Baby Boy

This is another of the Z-fol cards that I have published in this months edition of Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I was really honoured to be asked to produce the Masterclass this month - I was commissioned to create six cards - two beginner designs, two intermediate and two advanced. This is one of the beginner designs.


I was sent the Trimcraft Make a Wish 12” x 12” Paper Pad to use and I paired it with stamps and dies from the Crafter’s Companion Sara Davies Little Angel Signature Collection.

Winter Landscape

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Landscapes chosen by Jennifer.    I have created a card using a beautiful scene from the Ooh La La Creations Carnival of Colour CD.


The beautiful scene and the papers are from the CD, I have overprinted the dark blue papers with some Pink Petticoat papers - the sentiment is from LOTV.


 I have inked the edges of everything and used Kraft card stock.


Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Landscapes Challenge.

Collect Beautiful Moments

Now that the August edition of Making Cards Magazine is in the shops I can share one of the cards that I had published in the July edition.


I used the beautiful Petals & Parasols Collection from NitWit Collections, I think this is my favourite collection - I love the colours and beautiful papers and elements.


As usual I have printed the topper several times so that I could cut some decoupage layers.


I really enjoyed playing with this collection, I had three more cards published in the magazine but I think I will be using these pretty papers on a lot more cards in the future.

Thank you for popping in today.
