Matching gift. 

I designed the notebook gift to match the design on the watering can card I made some time ago so I could give it to a friend as a set. Stamped and heat embossed the flowers on the reverse side of the card after embossing with the polka dots folder. Glitter added to finish. Both templates from Cardmaking Paradise.

White with a touch of colour.

Thats the new challenge on the Form-a-Line forum. This is where the Cuttlebug comes in really handy with all the folders and dies to add interest to a card. The background is a Craft Too 'Daisy' embossing folder and Spellbinder Cross dies and Fancy Tags 2 dies. Stamped the Easter sentiment in yellow and edged the cross in yellow to finish.

Things with wings.....

Thats the challenge on Stampin Sisters in Christ this week. Now this proved more of a challenge that you'd think. I love this bird stamp from a set by Elusive Images but find it really hard to work with given its size and shape so after much deliberation I decided it was best suited to a CAS style of card and ended up with this.


Fairy decoupage

No ink ...........

That makes a change. Its been a while since I made a card and didn't have inky fingers. Lovely Dufex fairy decoupage on dry embossed mats and layers with some die cut corners as embellishments and a ribbon to finish.

Quick and easy card.

For hubby.

My computer has been eating into my craft time again with yet more problems so just a quick and easy card for hubby this year.

Used a large spellbinders heart die as my matt for the cute recycled image. Highlighted the embossing on it with glitter pen and chalk, edged with silver krylon pen. Coloured the debossed greeting with glitter pens.


Embedded Embossing

So simple!

This is such an easy but effective technique i came accross on the Stampin Sisters blog the other week. I cut out some flowers from background paper and adhered them to some plain white card, then all you do is pop it through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder and your done. Matt and layer as usual and I finished with some pearls in the flower centres. Told you it was easy!
