Catching Up!

I haven't been on my Blog for a while so thought I'd better catch up with some cards I've made recently.

The first three were all for the same person who moved house, had a birthday and became a Granny - all in the space of a week!

I've used a Whipper Snapper stamp for the first card which I have paper pieced and used PM's.  Used various papers for the background and a bunting die plus a Pink Petticoat sentiment which has been cut out using a Spellbinders die.





This second card used a LOTV image from their Taster Packs - these are ideal for quick cards as they are already coloured! Used a Sue Wilson embossing folder for the background, SU card stock and various dies plus a couple of embellishments.




This baby card was another quick card using a topper which I seem to have had for ages, a Spellbinders die, a cuttlebug embossing strip and a small piece of ribbon.



Finally, I wanted to make a special card for my Sister's birthday and after being confined to bed last weekend, it gave me the perfect excuse to watch the very talented Sue Wilson on Create & Craft.  This card is her design apart from the fact that she used a different die for the centre of the card and I also used a Pink Petticoat sentiment.  Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do it justice - it's just so pretty in real life!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
