Merry Christmas

Hello everyone. For my second card today, I used a die which I've had for about a year but not yet used. I've cut it twice in white and red and pieced them together.

Happy Happy Birthday

Hello everybody and happy Saturday!

This is my first card using spray inks. I cut the die cuts and sprayed with inks after masking off the centre of the panel.

Time Out GD reminder card

Hi everyone, I'm delighted to be guest designer at Tme Out and it's the second week of the inspired by words challenge. The words are 'Happy is the bride on whom the sun shines' and you can choose all or any of the words as inspiration for your card.

To make my card, I've used some cloud DP paper as the base and added some torn vellum, an inked and stamped die cut and die cut sun.

Don't forget to check out all the beautiful creations that the Time Out DT have made!

Time Out GD

Grettings everyone

I am very honoured to be Guest Designer at Time Out Challenges.  We have an 'Inspired by words' theme and the words are 'Happy is the bride that the sun shines on'.  You can use any of these words as inspiration (i.e. happy, bride, sun, shine). 

I wanted to use more of my DP on cards and here's what I've made.  The base was a die cut stiched rectangle cut from DP, then I added the "happy", bird, vellum banner, grey banner with "birthday" heat embossed in white and the vellum foliage tinted with a Promarker.

Looking forward to seeing you at Time Out. Have fun!!

Friends are flowers ...

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good weekend!

I've made this card using my multi-part Rubbernecker flower stamps. Firstly I cut a hexagon shape, stamped the flowers and sentiment using a mixture of TH distress and SU! markers, and added a frame. I was going to mount it all onto a square card but decided to keep it as is and made a shaped card instead.

In the lane ...

Hi everyone, I hope you're well and having a good day!

At Merry Monday, the theme is Sparkle, Bling and Shine and here's what I've made.

I've done some inking, masking and stamping, used a glue pen here and there to adhere some glitter, heat embossed the sentiment in black sparkle embossing powder and used Glossy Accents for my "shiny moon" (a little hard to see in the photo!).
