Three Cats Birthday Card

A recent birthday card using a squeeze design.

I love the detail in the detail, even down to the flowers and the patterns on the cushion and plant pots :D

The cats faces are so sweet too

I used a Marianne Flora and Swirl cutting die to make the embellishment.

Simple card, though I think still very pretty

This card was entered in the Fussy & Fancy Furry Friends Challenge

Snow White Wolf Christmas Card

This is a topper from a Debbi Moore craft CD

I had not used this topper before, so was nice to get chance to use it.

The topper is quite pale, and the detail of the castle in the scene behind the wolf isnt clear in this photo. It looks frosty though, makes for a lovely festive card.

I used different backing papers to decorate this card, kept it quite simple

My last festive card for 2012 :D

Wishing all my Blog Followers are lovely Christmas and Happy New Year

Winter Horses Christmas Card

I used a Glynn Williams design from a Joanna Sheen craft CD to make this card

I had not used this design before, I love the wintery feel to it. The colours in the design work well with bronze and create too.

I used a holly embossing panel to decorate the layers.
And swirls and punches for the embellishment.

I have so enjoyed making my christmas cards this year.  And I think that has also got a lot to do with using cutting dies and embossing folders.
Hope to get more for next year.

Christmas Berries Card

This card was made using a Jayne Netley Mayhew design from a Joanna Sheen craft CD

Its a topper I had yet to use, and decided to use it just as a one layer topper.  Lovely detail and colour in the artwork.

I used printed velumn for covering this card for a change

I like Jayne's animal artwork and generally use that more than her floral artwork.

Victorian Christmas House

Been looking through my Thomas Kinkade Craft CD and using toppers that I had yet to use.

This is a lovely scene, old wordly, and very festive.

I used a Nellies swirl cutting die and Marrianne poinsettia cutting die to make the embellishment.

Victorian Lady in Gold Christmas Card

I used toppers and sheets from Debbi Moore's craft mag for this card.
I also have the craft CD, but since they had already been printed, it saved me ink :D

I rarely use scenes from the craft CD's so it was a nice change to use one and the lady goes well with it.

I used a spellbinder embossing panel to decorate the gold layer.

Snowy Cottage Christmas Card

I used a Thomas Kinkade design from a Joanna Sheen craft CD

I decided to go through my craft CD's and use some that I have yet to make into a 3D sheet, so just used it as a single topper.

I used a Cheery Lynn holly corner die for the embellishment, cut out in glitter paper.

Lovely image, so nice to finally get chance to use it

Snowflakes and Hearts Festive Card

I had some toppers from a craft mag, and I used one to make this card.

I combined vintage paper with this modern looking topper

And decorated the edges with a Memory Box holly vine die (in glitter card) and Provocraft snowflake die  (in glitter paper)

Something a little different than the digital work I normally work with.

Pink Oriental Lady Card

I have a large collection of Oriental lady designs that I have purchased over the years.

This one was a gift from a friend, I love the detail in the outfit

Lovely subtle colours, which I encorporated in the flower embellishment. I made that with Marianne Flower Die

Snowflake Embossed Festive Card

I wanted to make a card using my embossing folders.

So I used my cutting spellbinder frame dies to make the different layers.
I then used a festive embossing folder on all the layers

Keeping to, two colours - silver and blue, this works quite well

This close up of the embossing, shows how deep that pattern is, gives lovely texture

And I used a different embossing pattern on the snowflakes, that added a bit more texture to the embellishments.
