Hugs ......


A Christmas Card .....

The card base is a 6 x 6 inch white card blank ......

I took a white card matt and stamped this with the bear and girl stamp in Versafine black ink which was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It was stamped again on printed paper and the girls dress trimmed out and paper pieced over the original image on the matt. The matt was edged with black ink and then matted on printed paper and black card to layer.

I then trimmed out some of the poinsettia/holly prints and applied these as shown.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was then trimmed out, edged in black and applied on foam pads as shown.

The card was finished by applying the matts to the card front ......

Red ......


Made this dimensional fold Christmas card ....

The red base card was cut to 6 x 4 inches and folded on the short side to form a card. Three panels were cut from red & green spotty paper to cover the front and insides of the card. I added a white panel to the back of the card for the greeting.

The inside fold was made from a 1 x 12 inch strip of red card folded in the centre  and at 3 inches from either side of the centre fold.

I die-cut 4 x 2inch squares from more red card and also die-cut some smaller matts from red mirri card. The mirri was added to the squares which were positioned along the red strip and attached to the centre of the card allowing the centre to fold flat inside the card.

I then die-cut some snowflakes from silver glitter card and added to the centre of the squares, adding a red adhesive pearl to each as shown.

For the front I die-cut red mirri card with a matt of white card using a stitched edge die. Stamping the white panel with the sentiment in red ink and attaching over the mirri on foam pads before adding to the centre as shown .....

Birthday ......

The die-cut square was applied directly to the card base in line with aperture and the matt was applied on foam pads to the card front.

This was decorated with 5 Prima maroon paper flowers which were centred with adhesive pearls.

The sentiment  (Papertrey Ink) was stamped in black Versafine ink on white card, trimmed and matted on more white card before applying to the card front as shown ....... this card is also entered into the Challenge over on CAS ON FRIDAY whose theme is 'Greetings Card' .....

Shiny .....




Made a decorated tag for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ..... it has been photographed at an angle to hopefully show the iridescence of the tag ......

The base was cut from re-cycled food packaging. I then cut a top layer from dark blue textured card. I then prepared the background with stencils and various colours of Mica inks dabbed through the stencil allowing it to dry. Some black stars were stamped and heat embossed in black embossing powder onto this.

I then took a die (Aall & Create) and die-cut this from black card which was sprayed with mica sprays in various colours. It was cut in two and applied to the background as shown.

I then stamped the sentiment (Woodware) in Versamark ink and heat embossed with mauve mica embossing powder (Moonglow). This was trimmed and matted on black card to frame. It was added as shown.

The edges of the tag were then treated with more Versamark ink and dipped into more of the embossing powder and heated to set. I then added a gold eyelet with the Crop-a-dile which was threaded through with some shiny crochet thread.

The tag was finished with a number of dark metallic adhesive gems......

Leaves .....


A set of three Artist Trading Cards made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

The bases were cut to 2.5 x 3.5 inches from re-cycled food packaging. I then chose some printed textured paper in a dark maroon leaf design. I then stamped the background skeleton leaves onto the paper in Versamark ink and heat embossed with green and mustard Adirondack embossing powder. This was trimmed to cover the bases.

I then die-cut some more leaves (Tim Holtz/Sizzix) from white card and applied these as shown, adding some Posca colours in selected areas.

The word was stamped in Versafine black on white card, trimmed and edged with yellow Posca pen before adding to the cards.

Final touch was to add a yellow edging to each card ......

Lavender .....


Made this little fragrant lavender bag with lavender from Provence France .....

The bag is ATC size - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I used a TH die to cut the bag from old bookpaper. This was coloured with milled lavender and old paper Distress inks applied with blending brushes before gluing together leaving the top flap open.

I then stamped the fern leaves (PaperArtsy) onto the bag in Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I die-cut some mini labels and stamped them with milled lavender Distress Ink (MamaMakes) and threaded through with jute string. I also tied a bow from some purple ribbon.

I then assembled the elements and applied with hot glue. Two heads of lavender, the ribbon, the labels (on foam pads) & a material covered button. The word Joy was stamped on some milled lavender coloured white card in Versafine black. Trimmed and applied as shown.

The bag was then filled with dried lavender flowers and the top sealed down to enclose. I have also edged the bag with Brilliance lavender ink to finish.

Nice shabby look and fragrant too ........
