Large Birthday Card

Do you ever get started on making a card and it all grows out of control? Thats exactly what happened with my Mum’s borthday card this year. I started out with the new Celtic Dreams collectable die set and cut out 6 of the diamonds, before I realised it the size of the card was 9 inches square!

Mothers Day 2015

As some of you may know, a few years ago I got my Mum into making cards so now when I make her a card I have to try and make one that she hasnt seen before. I am finding this increasingly more dificult as the years go by!

Here is the card I made for this years mothers day

I used tonic dies and the Sue wilson Cornflower die

Tangled chocolate

Today I have another project made using the the autumn poppy stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. This time I used my love of Zentangle to make a card:

I stamped the image with Archival black ink and then sat and tangled the open spaces

I cut the image out and matted on black card. I then cut a piece of white card to fit my card base, stamped the edge with black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder (this helps if you get extra spots as you don’t see them).

To finish I matted and layered the pieces and used mounting foam to give more dimension to the main image.

Why not pop over to the Chocolate Baroque blog and see what the design team have done with this fab stamp set.

Getting crafty with Julia Watts

Sorry again to my followers I seemed to have slipped by the wayside again. To be honest I haven’t been crafting a great deal lately what with work and family I really haven’t had the time. I have to make an effort and make the time, hopefully this should be a little easier as I am going to be spending some time with my Mum soon so it will be fun to craft together.
I did spend yesterday afternoon having some “me” time at the Paperterie in Aberdeen, I watched Sue Wilson do a couple of demos (and hopefully helped her with her camera) and then spent a couple of hours in a workshop with Julia Watts where we made this wonderful card.

I had a great time and was very pleased with my results. Thank you to both Sue and Julia for coming all the way up to Aberdeen and to the Papeterie for hosting the event.

Clean and Simple Love

Love U card with WOW embossing powder

Hi bloggers, I have a fairly clean and simple card for you today (well it is for me anyway) I came across the Love Cube cutting file by Bird quite by accident but I am really glad as it is great.

Love U card with WOW embossing powder

I cut the word from some red mirror card and placed it on a white card blank that I had embossed. To create the silver heart I triple embossed some silver WOW embossing powder and stamped my Clarity Heart stamp into it whilst it was hot and then cut it out.

Challenges I have entered this card into:

Brown Sugar Challenge #78 – Embossing
Eureka Stamps – Anything Goes
Creative Creations Challenges – Less is More

New Clarity Stamp – Filigraphy Balloon

and I LOVE it! There is so much detail in this stamp it is Gorgeous with a capital G. I can see me making a lot of cards with this one.

I used the stamp with black archival ink and embossed it with clear powder then I created the scene with distress inks and masks and this months NDC stamp (they are mega useful too).

New Tonic Affection Dies

Tonic Affection Dies Card

I am really sorry to all my followers, I have been a terrible blogger lately, but that’s about to change! I am going to try and blog at least once per week from now on.

Here is a card I made using my new Tonic Affection Dies, I love how intricate they are and, to be honest, you really don’t have to do much else to your card other than cut it as the dies do the work for you.

For this one I took a piece of gold mirror card just a little larger than the square die and cut the inner part of that die out and then embossed it. I then took the medium heart inner and cut and embossed that, and then the same with the “someone special” heart. Thats it, just mounted it onto some lilac card, then onto a card blank and popped a flower in the corner, its as easy as that!
