Foxes and Flowers Card

Another of the Dufex sheets I had in my stash

This one is a stunning fox design, I love it, such nice detail.
Sometimes when I make a card, the design focuses my mind a little.  I love wildlife, and I couldnt help but wonder what it would be like to see these two in my garden.
Perhaps one day :D

I used a X Cut frame die for the layering, and Nellies Flourish die to go with the flower toppers

Again, looks so good when the light catches that design, And I do like the colours I chose for this card

Elegant Lady in Pink Hat Card

I made this card with a dufex sheet.
The detail in the hat is lovely, especially when the light is on it
I used a spellbinder double embossing folder to decorate the layering, struggle with this pattern, it doesnt work as well as the other side (probably due to it being so detailed)

I love the pink tones :D

Topper Card

Sometimes I like to look at one things I have in my craft room and pull some elements together

This card was made with various different things, printed vellum, material flower toppers and a patterned tag.
I added some gems to the pattern on the vellum too.

Was quite pleased how this turned out, quite often when I do this kind of thing I am disappointed with the results.

Vintage Framed Girl Card

I made this card with a lovely design from my stash

Its ever so detailed, with the pattern on the frame and flowers.
Not sure this photo really picks up that details so well

Didn't feel the card needed much more with this pretty 3D sheet.

I am having fun using the Tag cutting dies (X Cut ones), the are making for interesting shapes to add to my cards

Ive entered this card in the Christmas Blog Challenge - Vintage

Butterflies Display Card

This card was made with a topper from a Debbi Moore Craft Mag

I also used one of the backing papers from the mag that blends with the topper

I made the embellishments with Marianne swirls and butterflies cuttign dies.  The butterflies were cut out with patterned card.

Tag Cards

I made these cards with toppers from a Debbi Moore Craft Mag.

I don't tend to use large tags on cards very often, but I did like the designs on these

I added glitter to the roses, though it doesnt show on the photo
And the extra embellishments I felt added a bit of luxury to the card.
I used another tag from Debbi Moore craft mag for this card
I used a X Cut flower cutting die for the floral embellishment, cut with patterned paper. Lovely affect. And also added a butterfly using a Marianne cutting die

Flower Pot Card

I am going to make a real effort to use up the purchased sheets in my stash.
Things I have held onto for ages, as Ive been working mostly with CD designs.

This one has a lot of glitter included on the flowers, but it didnt show up on this card

I made the flower topper, with a X Cut flower cutting die, cut it out with pattern vellum
Its quite a bit die, so will probably use it mostly with bigger cards, however, thought I would see how it worked on a smaller card for the first time using.

Ive entered this card in the Craft Bloggers Challenge 7

Flowers and Butterfly Card

I got some lovely presents for Christmas from friends, and one of the things I love to do is send them Thank You Cards

I made this one with Flower Toppers, a Butterfly topper and cutting frames for the layer
I had fun with the colours on this one, quite a few varied ones, that I hope all blend well together.

Red Car Card

I dont get chance to make many Male or Travel themed cards.
I needed to do one for a recent challenge, and used a lovely purchased 3D sheet from my stash to make this card.

I used a cog patterned embossing folder for the layering, but little else as I try not to make male cards too fancy

Ive entered this card in the

ABC Challenge - Embossing

Ballroom Dress Card

I made this card using toppers from a Debbi Moore craft mag.

I had a few birthdays end of Dec start of Jan, so the first few cards, were actually created end of December, but I was unable to show them off until now

And oh to have a lovely dress like this in your wardrobe :D
I used Marianne swirl and butterfly cutting dies to make the embellishments.  And some gems, which I often forget to use.

The backing paper is flock, from my stash. I have so many nice ones and Im sure it will take me another 12 months to get through them all.

Lilac Vintage Lady Topper- Free Art

I do like the detail in the outfit for this lady topper, lovely subtle colours and I managed to a make a nice frame to compliment it

A good one for using for lady themed cards

Lion Lady Card

I got chance to use the stunning artwork of Josephine Wall, from a Joanna Sheen craft CD

The artwork is stunning and as always, with this artist, there is more to the design that you discover as you look into it.

I love wild cats too

I made the embellishment with a Marianne floral and swirl cutting dies.

I'm having fun using my fancy, patterned and glitter papers with my cutting dies.
