To my Husband

This is the card that I made for my husband.  He would like a Jack Russel - I've said he can't have one until he retires so that he is at home to walk it.


The image is from the Pollyanna Pickering Best of Breeds collection and the papers are from the First Edition Wild at Heart paper pad.


The sentiment is computer generated and I added a button and some twine from my stash.

Embroidered with Love

I have used the beautiful Craftwork Cards Embroidered Blooms papers along with the Aretino Linen cardstock to create this card.


I cut the circles with my Tattered Lace Layering Circle Dies, the sentiment is from one of the Stamp Club kits.


I used foam pads to attach some of the circles and cut the scalloped border with a Clearly Besotted Scalloped Edge Die.

Merry Christmas To You

I am really trying to get some Christmas cards made at the moment, I have used the Craftwork Cards Christmas Past paper pad to create this card.


I have just used two of the papers, a sentiment and some card candi.  I distressed the edges of everything and used some red card stock as a base.


I cut the poinsettia from red card stock and one of the papers with my Sue Wilson Poinsettia die and also used Sue's Pine Boughs die.

Autumn Harvest

I discovered this card that I forgot to post, I know it's a bit late for Autumn but there are still lots of leaves on the trees and we've only just stopped picking runner beans and courgettes!


I used the Graphic 45 - Seasons Collection, all I have done is lightly distress and ink the edges of everything,


There is lots of my favourite fussy cutting and I have used foam pads to add some dimension.

Embroidered Birthday

This is the third card that I have created with this months Craftwork Cards November Stamp Club stamp set, this time I have teamed it up with one of the beautiful Embroidered Blooms papers.


I coloured the stamp with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens and then cut it out with a Tattered Lace die.  I drew around the die on some pink card stock to create a mat.


I stamped the 'HAPPY' on a scrap of the pink card stock and fussy cut three of the flowers so that I could overlap the stamped panel.

Christmas Tree

This is the first card that I have created with this months Love from Lizi kit, I love this collection it is absolutely beautiful.


Everything that I have used is from the kit with the exception of some white and dark blue card stock and blue seam binding.


I lightly distressed the edges of everything and die cut the sentiment from some white card stock several times so that I could layer it up and make it thicker.  The snowflakes are included in the kit, I painted them white with a Pebeo marker.


I really must buckle down and get some Christmas cards made, I'm really behind again!

Christmas Shop

These are the other two cards that I created for the latest Die-cutting Essentials Special Edition, it includes a fabulous free craft kit worth over £40.

I was asked to create three Christmas themed cards using the free craft kit.



As I said in my previous post, this commission was a bit of a challenge as I was struggling with ill health at the time and I am not very pleased with the cards that I created.

For the first card I used the icicle embossing folder that is in the kit and die cut the shop front from some wood grain card stock.  The striped papers. shop sign and window scene are also included in the kit.


For the second card I die cut the shop front window from one of the papers included in the kit and trimmed the window and door of the shop front that I die cut from white card stock.  I created the snow covered roof using one of the embossing folders and added a window scene behind the window.


Both of the sentiments are from Craftwork Cards.

Wishing you a Beautiful Day

This is the third card that I have created with the Julie Loves Autumn Sketches collection.


I used one of the solid coloured papers with leaves printed on it and coloured one of the plain papers with leaves on it with my Spectrum Noir Colorista pens, the bottom layer is a very pale pink and matches the background on the top papers perfectly.


I cut a strip of sentiments and popped out some die cut flowers - both included in the kit, I also coloured some leaves black and fussy cut them.  Everything has been layered on black card stock.
