Winter Sledge Card

I made this card from a Debbi Moore craft CD

It's the first time I have used this design, reason being I'm not a big lover of wording on a topper.  This is a 3D design mind, and I liked the way the parcels tubble towards you out of the image.

Again I used a Spellbinder poinsettia cutting die - given in a swap - lovely die, but struggled to use it with a 3D topper, fortunately because this is digital design I could print it out smaller. And I had to layer some of the poinsettia under the parcel layers of the topper.

Worked OK though, and turned out to be an interesting affect.

Ive entered this into the -
Anything Goes - Challenge 79


Black Cherry - Free Art

I so liked the previous fruit design, thought I would do another.  Again the delicate bordering does make it pretty and great for making cards

Snowflake Lady Card

This card was made from a Joanna Sheen craft CD. I love the detail in this artwork and have used quite a few of the designs from this CD.

Due to the detail, I decided to make the image into a pyrimid design.  And this was made into larger card, as I didnt want to loose too much of the stunning detail.  There is an whole world of things going on in this image.

I envy artists with this tallent, and to have such an imagination much be wonderful.

Again trying to stick to a couple of colours, silver and lilac in this one.

Large Poinsettia Christmas Card

I did a swap earlier this year with another crafter who had a Spellbinders die - poinsettia one - that I had really wanted to try.

I made this card with the die shapes I recieved, love the detail in this cutting die. However, it is a little bit big for the size of card I normally make (5x7), so I wouldnt be able to combine this die cut with a digital image.

Therefore, I used my clock embossing panel to decorate the rest of the card, and a fancy backing paper.

I quite like the affect for a change.

Ive entered this card into the 52cct.blogspot october-embellishment-challenge

Winter Badgers Card

I got a couple of winter Squeeze Card craft CD's last year and was determined to use more of the stunning designs for this winter.

I love wildlife. Despite living in a semi rural area, I find the wildlife pretty illusive.  It would be wonderful to see Badgers in the wild :D

I loved this design as soon as I saw it. Stunning detail, added a little bit of glitter to those berries.

I decided to keep this simple, not adding too many extra embellishments to distract from the design.

Red Cherry - Free Art

Something a little different, fruit!  I have a few nice fruit design in my collection, though it was time I used them.
Looks quite nice with a detailed framing design

Blue Church Christmas Card

WOW I've gone over 100,000 views on my blog. I am thrilled, thank you all that visit my blog and leave comments.

I have a collection of craft cd's that I got from Debbi Moore that are vintage designs.

This silent night design is very festive in the crisp cool colours.
Something about blue and white, with snow, that always makes me feel festive and that clean untouched snow scene. The one that is there when you first see freshly fallen snow before we all go out and play in it :D

I made this lovely design into a 3D sheet, with a little glitter it looks cool and festive.

Again, I have dozens of festive and everyday images that I have yet to make into 3D sheets and use.  Just not enough hours in a day and not enough cards required to make
Im also working on using less colours in a card, and quite liking the affect


I have entered this card into Fussy and Fancy Challenge-74 
and Deep Ocean Challenge challenge-36

Victorian Christmas Shopping Card

I do like the traditional street look for christmas cards.  This is one of the design from a Squeeze craft CD
The detail is lovely, and I find little things of interest everytime I look at this card.  Scenes like this remind me of Dickensian stories, and it is the only time I like that kind of story - such as Christmas Carol :D

I think it would be lovely to dress up in Victorian outfits and go to a Christmas market, with snow and old fashioned street.  It would feel so festive.

I used a Memory Box holly vine cutting die to make the embellishment, with a couple of glitter snowflakes.

Lots of glitter went on the snow of the design, though as usual doesnt show well in a photo

Winter Gold Art Deco Lady Card

I am attracted to elegant lady designs because I love the fashion of bygone days, they really knew how to look glam.
I have a lot of lovely Art Deco lady designs on craft CD's by Debbi Moore. And sometimes I just have to use them for christmas cards, even though they aren't specifically that theme.

This design has a lovely fur coat as part of the dress, so works really well for a christmas card.

And I got to use one of my embossing panels, which is always a treat. I made the snowflakes with my Provocraft snowflake cutting die.

Angel Joy Christmas Card

I made this 3D design from one of the detailed designs I purchased from Dover Art.
I have so many of these designs all ready to be printed and cut out, and as yet not used everyone one of them.

I tend not to use designs that are more cartoon like, but this one I think is detailed enough for me. I like detailed art, I love the affect of you finding the little things in an image.

This has a nice modern feel, lovely detail in the dress that just begged for glitter to be added.

Pleate Dress Lady - Free Art

I love elegant lady designs, and thought this one would make a lovely card.  Again made my own bordering to compliment the image

Vintage Blue Car Card

I think vintage cars look more interesting than modern ones.
Cars these days all look the same!

I made this card with a design from Debbi Moore's Cards for Men craft CD

The lampost is a Marianne cutting die, I got it to use on male cards, and already found it very usefull.

This design would be great for festive cards and also for weddings.

Egyptian Lady Card

Years ago I went to Egypt on holiday. Unfortunately I became ill and this has left me with a chronic condition, I so wish I'd stuck to watching documentaries on TV
However, I still remember how in awe I was of the buildings and history of the place.  So when I got an Egyptian craft CD, it was a treat.
This design is from a Debbi Moore craft CD. One of those that again, I had meant to get around to using right away, but not got chance to do so.

I only have so many cards I need to make and it is so hard to choose from the hundreds of lovely designs, what to make up. 

I used a Marianne border cutting die on this card.  I have a few nice border dies now, just trying to find ways to use them

My Fair Lady Anniversary Card

One of my favourite craft CD's is the My Fair Lady one by Debbi Moore.
I love the dresses and artwork. And some of the couples are so nice for wedding and anniversary cards

I used the couple with the lady in a cream dress for this card.  Doesnt show very well but the base card is embossed and organza bow and flowers  to finish.


10 October 2012

Green Lady Card

I used a Debbi Moore design to make this card
Its a craft CD I've had for a while, but rarely had chance to use it.

Did a little bit of embossing on the mirrored layer. And the butterfly is a rubber stamp embossed in gold glitter powder.

Simple and elegant design, love working with it.

I love the colours in this one.

Highway 66 Motorbike Card

I made this card using one of the designs off the Cards for Men craft CD - by Debbi Moore

The design is in 3D, and I used a Marianne Signpost Cutting Die for the embellishment.

Nice to get chance to do a nice male themed card
And I do like the detail in the cutting die.

Flower Tub Card

I made this card with a design from my own collection purchased from Dover Art.

The flowers were especially difficult to cut out when made into a 3D sheet, but I think its worth the effort.

Add a little glitter and simple swirls.

Art Deco Lady with Floral Die

I had a couple of Kanban Art Deco lady toppers in my stash, and used one on this card.

The floral embellishment is made with a Marianne floral cutting die I won in a competition
I embossed the leaves and it was nice to do all of it in blue.

I really like this floral die, great that it has leaves that I can alsouse with other dies.  And a little different to have a button shape for the top layer of the flower.

Lilac Bird and Floral Card

I recently purchased a new Marianne floral cutting die and this is the first time used on this card

I love the pattern and little swirl is just so sweet.  On this card I cut it out in glitter paper, which is very, very glittery, went everywhere - LOL

The butterfly is also a Marainne cutting die, I have a few of this designers dies and really like how they work.  The set of butterflies are small and cute and work well with the size of card I like to make.

I embossed patterns into the layers, though you cant tell the purple pattern so well in this photo. The topper was a gift, lovely detail in the design and keeping it simple colourwise works well.

Marianne Floral Cutting Die

I won a challenge recently .  Using the voucher I got a new Marianne Floral Cutting Die.

Keeping things simple I made these two cards, just to get a feel for the die.

I like that this one comes with a leaf shape, and it is one I can use with my other floral die by Marianne.
The top layer of the flower is a button shape, but for these two cards I used a gem

The swirl on this card is a Nellies swirl, this is the first time Ive used it and do like the affect. A nice size too for the size of card I like to make

This card I used the die with a 3D topper from my stash.
I have a small stash of patterned papers, with glitter which are coming in usefull now I have a few cutting dies. Especially the floral ones.

Steam Punk Lady - Free Art

I have been a little lax in my making up of free toppers of late. In my defence I have been making cards - LOL

So here's a fun one for folks, especially nice for those crafters that like steampunk

Autumn Witch Card

Not a theme I do very often, a witch card.  I had this design stashed away for a while, and finally got the chance to use it.

I made the border with an X Cut border cutting die.
The embellishment was made with a Marianne swirl and Butterfly stamp (embossed in glitter gold powder)

I made this card for a fun challenge on Craft Creations forum.
