Thank you card


This is a thank you card for the lovely staff at the Cardiac Monitoring Unit my Mother-in-law has been on for the past couple of weeks.

 I have used a 8x8in white card and covered it with turquoise card. I have then cut the decorative strips in turquoise with a Sue Wilson die. I backed these die cuts with white card before attaching them to each side of my card. I embossed white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder and attached that down the centre of my card. I then printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a die from a nesting set from The Works, I used the next die in the set to cut turquoise card to mount the sentiment. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

18th birthday card



This is a personalised 18th birthday card for my sons girlfriend. I have used the Tattered Lace essential book die. I have used the dies to cut purple and white layers alternatively. I have embossed the white layers with a Crafts Too embossing folder, I attached these layers to an A4 card after curling the layers around a rolling pin. I have added a 18th key, I picked these up from Home Bargains, they are like the keys that were once popular in boxes as keepsakes. I have added flowers to decorate the key. I have used a Go Kreate scalloped ovals. I cut one oval in purple and then printed a personalised sentiment and die cut with the next size down in the nesting set. I die cut the bookmarks that come with the book dies. I cut this in purple and white and embossed the white to match the book. I added purple ribbon to the bookmark. The "18 today" is die cut with Tattered Lace dies and I added that to the bookmark. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Pop up box card


This is my first attempt at a pop up box. I have used the patterned papers that came in the latest Quick Cards Made Easy. I thought the papers were perfect for my father-in-law so I decided to try this to make him something completely different. I have made the box and covered all the panels with the patterned paper. I have die cut various elements to embellish my box. I die cut a Cheery Lynn trellis and cut into it to cut it to size, I added the flourish to this, also cut with a Cheery Lynn die, I completed this panel with flowers cut with a punch,  I die cut the wheel barrow, watering can, fork and spade with Lea'bilities dies. I cut grass to add to the wheelbarrow and tiny flowers. The birdhouse and bird are cut using Marianne dies. The dragon fly is cut using a free die. I attached some of the flowers and the bird with acetate.

On your special day card


I have used an 8x8in white card and folded the front. I folded the front in half then half again. In between these folds I have added the die cuts which are cut with a Tonic header die. I then matt and layered the panels with purple card then white embossed card. I embossed the white card using an Embossalicious embossing folder, I then added the die cut sentiment that I cut with a Sue Wilson die. I added die cut butterflies. I completed my card with gems on the embossing and the butterflies

Spring bunnies card


I printed some digital images and papers. I matt and layered my card with green card, rounding the corners with a punch. I cut the yellow paper to size and embossed it with a Tattered Lace embossing folder, I die cut the bunny image with a Tonic rectangle die and then cut the next size in the set in green to mount my image. I cut a panel of another colour paper in the set and mounted it onto the green card. I embossed some white card with a strip Tattered Lace embossing folder. I assembled all these elements adding a yellow lacy trim to the white embossed card. I die cut daffodils using Lea creatif dies to embellish my card. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Joy to the world Christmas card


A quick simple card today to try the technique I used earlier in the week to add glitter to my projects. I have used double sided adhesive sheets and stuck my Joy to the World die cut to it. I used a Sue Wilson die for this. I then added Tonic Nuvo glitter, I prepared my 6x6in white card by matt and layering with gold, red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I then attached the sentiment.

Poinsettia Christmas card


I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and gold card. I cut a piece of white card to size then cut the oval out of it using a Presscut die. I then embossed the white card with an Embossalicious embossing folder. I cut a red oval ring with two oval dies and added that to the centre of the cut oval. The white oval with include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas.

I have die cut the poinsettia with Sue Wilson dies and the holly flourish with a Cheery Lynn die and then arranged them around the oval. I completed my card with flat backed pearls
