Transformation Butterfly

I just love this stamp by the Ton Stamps. I have water coloured the image and placed on an embossed background. The embossing folder is by Stampin Up. I also used a spellbinders hot foil die for the sentiment.

Stained Glass Technique

Just dropping by to share a Christmas card I made using the stained glass technique. I die cut the poinsettia five times, glued the all together to make a stack. I coloured the cut out pieces with Copic Markers. I then glued stacked poinsettia die to a die cut background, placed and glued the coloured cut out pieces in the die cut ,filled with crystal effects and set the card aside to dry overnight.

Isolation Cards

I am at home doing my bit for Social Isolation. This is a wonderful opportunity to play in my craft room. Here are some cards that I made in the last couple of days. Hope they inspire you to get crafty.

Wedding Celebrations

This is a box card I made for my Husbands Nephews Wedding. It is a simple design, I included a small envelope to place the money we gave the couple as a gift. I am quite happy with how it turned out.

More show entries

Hello this is my final post showcasing the cards that I entered into the local show. I had lots of fun creating them. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

This card took many hours to make the cross stitching was something I had not tried on a card before. I was inspired to try it by the very talented Jennifer McGuire and her posts on her blog. It turned out really well and love the shaker card element as well

I love this Altenew cover die set.

A A This one is a clean and simple card using a Stampinup Dragonfly set and a Hero Arts sentiment

I made this one using the spellbinders 3d vignette circle die and the October 17 My Monthly Hero Kit.

I created this background using distress oxide inks. I love how they blend together so nicely. The stamp set I used is a Gina K stamp set , the seaweed and star fish are Gina Marie dies and the globe is a Paper Rose Die

I love how this box card worked out. I used a Tim Holtz Stamp set , the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man Die and a Memory box gear die

I created the background for this card using distress crayons. This was my first play with them. Although not your typical Christmas Card colours I quite like how it turned out.

This one is a Child’s birthday card using the Stampin Up Zoo Review stamp set and Memory Box grass border dies

Show entries

I mentioned that I had entered some cards into the local show. I was delighted to find out that my cards had won several prizes including the prize for the best exhibit. Here are some of the winning entries.

This first card won first prize in the embossed cards section.
I made it using silver mirror cardstock and embossing the cardstock in four different Tim Holtz embossing folders. I then swiped the cardstock with black stazon Ink. I stamped and mounted a stamp it Australia Butterfly collage stamp. I stamped a second impression, coloured and fussy cut the butterfly and coated the butterfly with glossy accents.

The next card was entered into the die cut cards section. I won second prize for this entry.

I die cut the stained glass robin image six times, I glued one to my base card and coloured the die cut using alcohol markers. I then layered the remaining five die cuts on top of the original one being careful to line them up together. I then covered the section that had been coloured on the base card with glossy accents ensuring that it went to the edges of the die cut and set it aside to dry overnight. I then mounted it onto red cardstock that had a leaf die cut background on it.

I will post some more pictures of my other winning entries tomorrow.

Christmas Cards

This year I have been a little late in getting my Christmas Cards started. Here Are a couple that I have made using a Kaisercraft Christmas pack.



Hello and Welcome to my blog.

I am an avid card maker and have set up this blog to share some of my creations.

I have been busy working on some cards to enter into the local show, I will post some pictures next week after the show is over.

I plan to try and post a card at least once a week and was thinking of starting with some Christmas cards as I am really behind with making my cards this year.

Hope you all have a great day.
