Card for my mum on Mothers Day


I used decoupage sheets that came with March Making Cards Magazine, they are lovely!!

Luckily found some great doublesided card at Craft Central, so it worked well with the fold of this card.

Mothers Day card


This is quite a simple Mothers Day, done for posting, so it doesnt get squashed. Still nice and pink though.

Parasol


This is made using the 'Bella' parasol template/pattern from ARTYFARTYDESIGN

I think they would make ideal gifts for weddings, for the Bride to hold, aswell as a rolling pin or Horse shoe. I just need to make the box now.

BIRTHDAY CARD

This card is made using a large 'HOUSE MOUSE' Rubber Stamp, I just used ordinary colouring pencils for this.

Friday, 8 February 2008

A few Bookatrix Cards I have made previously.

I added quilled Roses I had made to this Bookatrix













I love making bookatrix cards, they make such an ornate card, as you can see I especially like making them in Silver Holographic or mirri card, I think they look as if they are made of silver.






Birthday shoes!!

I made these cards a year or so ago, using the then TSV by dawn Bibby from QVC

Card using Wrapping Paper

I saw this wrapping paper & thought it would make a great card! I used the tag to put 'Dad' on, the wording is foam letters with I have used hot foil on.

Happy Birthday

This has to be one of my most favourite Rubber Stamps, I also have a cross stitch of this too, its called 'Gathering Sea shells' but I love it as is the spitting image of my eldest daughter when she was small,Im sure she even had a similar dress.
This I used the stamp to make a decoupage out of the image.
