Butterflies and Lace

I made the butterflies using shrink pastic & sakura gelly roll pens, give a wonderful effect, as the glitter in the pens intensifies.

I used the bitz in the new Lets Get Crafting Magazine to make this card, the A4 silver card and chipboard stars. I filled the stars with silver glitter form craft planet,cut the letters out with Christmas snowflake patterned bakcing paper and then mounted on silver mirror card and cut around again, leaving just enough mirror card to make a boarder.

'Happy New Year!'

Happy New Year!
I stamped the image several times, firstly cutting the cat out,giving him fur by cutting into the edge.
Then I cut out the mouse and attached to some silver yarn,cut the computer out leaving the middle screen section out,I cut a piece of acetate to act as a screen, coloured it all in with Watercolour Pens, and before attaching the screen in place I added Happy New Year.
A very non-traditional New year card.

Pot pourri holders

..........a little birdhouse for your soul.....
Pot pourri birdhouses, made from parchment that I pricked and embossed.


This is a Wedding Card I made, I joined 3 a5 cards & cut apertures out of them, then added various designs, so they can be seen through the different apertures, then when the book is closed it makes a 3d picture.
The verse and space for writing is on the back page. All presented in a ribbon tied box.


This lantern is made using a Holly house stamp, which is stamped & heat embossed 4 times and cut out. The box exercised my brain power, as it has false top & bottom to hang the Lantern on,I cut the apertures out and then used Acetate.
The box stands 11.5ins high, so its a big one!!

Hot Foil Pictorial

This is a Hot foil Pictorial, it makes fantastic embelishments for your cards.
You will need a lo-heat stylus,normal soldering irons just melt the foil to non-existence

For this card you will need,
Lo-Heat Stylus ,Heat Gun, Hot foil,
Masking tape,edging scissors,glue,scorer & board
Brass stencil , gold ink pad, clear embossing pad.
Firstly I heat embossed some A5 card using a flower stamp , cut the image out using edging scissors .

Using a piece of lo-tack tape attach the brass stencil to the card across the top,then carefully place a piece of
foil under the stencil,colour side up.

Using the stylus, slowly trace round the stencil,carefully.

Remove the stencil, then carefully lift off the foil,to reveal the embossed greeting
Use the piece of foil line up on the left of the card under the stamped flower motif.
Then carefully trace round the outside to form a boarder

Then glue the image to card, the card is finished.
