Deery Me .....


Made a simple Christmas card ....

I used a 5 x 5 inch square Kraft card blank and die-cut the deer out of the front. I then embossed the front with an embossing folder through the Big Shot.

I cut a square of white card and backed the die-cut inside the card front. I added red noses to the deer with a Copic marker.

The sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink onto white card, trimmed out and applied as shown on foam pads to finish.

Starry Deer ....


A Christmas card simply made ....
I took a square white 5 x 5 inch card blank and matter this with maroon & kraft card. I die-cut a star from some 'Merry Christmas' printed card and applied this centrally.

The deer was stamped on white card in Versafine black ink, trimmed out and applied on foam pads in the centre of the star to finish.

Clean & simple .....

Cones .....


A clean & simple Christmas card made recently ....

It is on a 5 x 5 ins white card blank and I have embossed the front of the card with a 'Falling Snow' folder from Stampin'Up

I then matted some more white card onto some holly red card. I stamped the sentiment 'Silent Night' in black Versafine ink as shown before applying directly on the card blank.

The pinecone decoration & leaves were die-cut from kraft and green cards. The pinecones are layered and infilled with Stickles glitter glue. They were arranged in a pleasing way as shown on foam pads and finished with three red dewdrops.

Simple but effective ....

Black Tree ......



A layered Monochrome Christmas card ...

I took a 5 x 7 ins white card base and cut a piece of black card as a matt, attaching to the card as shown.

I then stamped a series of layering stamps by Ranger/ Tim Holtz in Archival black ink and die-cut these before layering on foam pads onto the matt. The sentiment was then stamped onto the card as shown in black Versafine ink to finish !

No colour at all on this one !

White .....


Made a Christmas card & wanted to use a die I had bought !

Decided a white-on-white design would be nice. I took a 5 x 5 ins white card blank and then die cut the starry circle from white card. I also die-cut a couple of loose stars out of the same card. I added some Stickles glitter glue to aspects of the die-cuts.

I applied the circle and stars on foam squares to the card blank and then stamped the sentiment in black Versafine ink.

Finishing the card with three clear dewdrops adhered with Glossy Accents ....

Buttons .....


 A set of Inchies made for a swap on UK Stampers Forum .....

I punched the bases using a 1 x 1 inch punch out of re-cycled packaging. I covered this with old book pages also punched out to fit. I then stamped over this in black Archival ink and added a coloured button tied through with gold twine with hot glue and a flower brad.

Each Inchie was edged in gold Krylon pen to finish.

Leaves ......


A mailart postcard made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I used some re-cycled packaging as a base and cut it to 6 x 4 inches ....... I covered this with some paper made using the Gelli Plate and acrylic paints.

I have stamped some leaves in green Impress inks (spring green & chartreuse) and outlines in black Archival ink.

The sentiment was stamped on white card with black Versafine ink, trimmed out and stuck in place. The whole card was edged in green Versamagic chalk ink. I treated with a spray of matte acrylic lacquer to protect during the ravages of the Postal system.

Love .....


Just finished an 'I Love You' card ....

I die-cut the heart embelishment from some metallic iridescent paper.  The background was made in three matted layers. The top layer was coloured with blue and orange Distress Inks applied by foam pad to achieve a shaded effect. Some water splats were added and ink removed with a tissue. The matt was stamped with the 'Love Makes The World Go Round' sentiment in black Versafine ink. The die cut applied as shown and three turquoise sequins applied with Glossy Accents.

This was matted onto larger mats of orange and black before being stuck onto a white card blank to finish .....
